It’s officially summer!! (does happy tap dance across the floor!)
It’s been a long winter and quick spring, but now it’s time pull out the daisy dukes shorts, fire up the backyard grills, go to all the rooftop parties and set up the nighttime bonfires! I love all the endless outdoor activities that summertime brings!
For me, with every new season comes a new clothing obsession. In the fall/winter it’s usually my jacket/coat obsession. This spring I was in love with sheer overlay tops, but this summer I have been buying button-ups nonstop! From tops to dresses, I literally can’t get enough of this classic staple piece because I can make any kind-of outfit with it.
For this weeks look, I was inspired by a wide-brim hat that I purchased not too long ago. It gave me a instant feel of sophistication as soon as I tried it on. I knew I wanted to create that same type of look with it. I paired it with a classic white button down dress and strappy heels. I also added a statement necklace and my color block “797” bag to add a bit of pizzaz to the outfit.
After finishing the look with my signature red lip, I took a look in the mirror to check out my outfit creation. I couldn’t help but mouth the words “Mi Amor” in my fake French accent to take on this sophisticated persona that my outfit was giving me! I’d also like to think that it was a indication of my newfound love ….. button ups! 🙂 (Why I said a Spanish term in a French accent is beyond me, but it sounded sophisticated so just roll with the punches and don’t kill my vibe! Lol)
