Happy Summer!

Happy Summer, lovebugs! In case you weren’t aware, today is the first official day of summer and the “longest” day of the year. Longest as in, it stays light out the longest, not that we get extra hours. Sorry to get your hopes up – but don’t feel bad, I quickly thought the same thing before I realized what that really meant.
I decided to celebrate the first day of summer by pulling out some of my brightest and flashiest accessories. What better way than with some turquoise earrings, bold orange beads, green clutch, and glittery gold wedges. A simple but chic dress was the perfect piece to incorporate all of these together..without looking like a walking rainbow. I decided I love the nail trend as pictured first in this post and switched it up this week with bright yellow and coral.
{Outfit Details – Dress: Penguin, Wedges: Dolce Vita for Target, Clutch&Sunnies: F21, Necklace: Francesca’s Collections, Watch: Michael Kors c/o boyfriend}
To kick off summer, here’s a short little list of some of my favorite summer activities:
  • Sunny afternoons poolside with sisters & girlfriends
  • Sipping on a chilled glass of lemonade, or an icy coffee. 
  • Gushing over the lists of must-haves in the latest issue of Lucky
  • Grilling fresh veggies and indulging in yummy burgers. 
  • Taking trips to the beach and returning with sunkissed skin
  • Wearing brightly colored patterns, polishes, and accessories
Nearly each of these things have been showcased via photos here just for you lovelies to see! Go take a peak :). What are your favorite summer activities? Do you like to keep it low key with easy to wear pieces, or spruce up your look with bright accessories?
xx,

Marissa

    Turquoise, gold, AND coral? I’m dying over here! And there are those nails again! I’m seriously inspired now. I think I actually “dress up” more in the Summer myself. Dresses just make life easier!

    You’ve been killing it lately with your outfits- seriously girl, you look gorgeous! The navy combined with the bright colors looks fab and I’m thinking I need to head out to Target to see if they have anymore of these wedges- so cute.

    p.s. love these sunglasses too! And Francesca’s does have the best jewelry- I just bought a pair of gorgeous gold hoops with a few white stones mixed in… it definitely looks like something I would have picked up at Saks or something πŸ™‚

    Anyways, I really need to stop typing now! haha
