Summer is here!

Summer is Here

It’s still March and cold in lots of places, but this heat in LA has got me feeling the summer vibes!

Of course no summer look is complete without a parasol! Even though I should probably get a tan since people literally ask me if I’m albino.

I love the simple, minimalist look of this dress. It’s a perfect example of how easy minimalism is, especially in the summer. At the same time, it looks very chic and sophisticated.

I can’t believe this dress cost something like twelve dollars from forever21. Sometimes it is possible to find good things there.

These dresses are longer than the midi length, but still great column dresses to invest in for summer.

A good midi dress is super trendy right now, and I love some of these for that perfect length.

There’s not much to this outfit except the minimal dress and sandals. I have recently bought some really cute color block sandals, so I’ll be probably wear them next. But for this look, the Manolo Chaos did the job.

Accessories

My parasol was a gift, so I can’t divulge where I got it from ;)

But jewelry and accessories are very important for such a simple summer look to really pop.

I decided to do the mixed metals thing, and go with gold Chanel earrings (similar here and here), and plain gold chain.

For my bracelets I went with a rose quartz bracelet (another one here), and a rose gold cuff. Another rose gold bracelet I love is this one, although it’s a bit less delicate than the rest of my jewelry and might not mesh too well with this outfit.

I feel like with the simplicity of this dress, mixed jewelry adds a bit more life and color to the outfit.

summer 7

I went with the lunch clutch to finish this off. The roll top bag is casual and cute, and just the perfect bag for summer! It’s almost like I’m going to a very chic picnic.

 

I hope I didn’t give you too much FOMO with this look! I’m sorry I just get so happy when summer starts, and in about two months I’ll be complaining about the insane heat.
