Hot Summer, Cool Looks: Week 1
I'm kicking off week 1 of our new blog campaign called Hot Summer, Cool Looks! Every week we'll be posting a summer favorite from our new arrivals, so make sure to keep checking our blog. Just because it's hot as lava outside doesn't mean you can't look cute, too! Don't get me wrong, the very last thing I want to spend my time on is getting ready to know as soon as I walk outside it was all for nothing. This summer I have found myself favoring the breezy and easy looks when the temps are as high as they have been.
I've always been drawn to clothing items that have a lot of detail. This blouse has everything - stripes, hi-low, buttons, cuffed sleeves, collar, v-neck, front tie, lightweight & breezy.
When I was a kid, summer comfort meant tennis shoes, shorts and a t-shirt that I didn't mind ruining with dirt & sweat. In middle school if I wasn't in flip flops, rolled up Soffe shorts and t-shirts with the sleeves rolled up, I was in cleats, shin guards, rolled up shorts and a soccer jersey. Hashtag rolled everything. Then there was high school. It was during these years I discovered what a fashion trendsetter was and at the same time discovered I was not one of them. I remember begging my mother to take me shopping at Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister just to look exactly like my best friend and the next high schooler.
While those were great times circa 2006, I'm glad we let go of the public school uniform. Nowadays I find myself caring less about how I look and more about how clothes make me feel. BONUS for those outfits that come together and make you look AND feel great! Stay tuned for next week's summer favorite.
