Summer Floral Dress

This one just so happens to be a perfect fit for those hot summer days. Don’t get me wrong I love the summer, but when your clothes are sticking to you because it’s so incredibly hot you have to have a few lightweight casual dresses in your closet. I found this summer floral dress at a local boutique down the street from my house. Below are a few other favorites that will keep you cool while looking fashionable all summer long.

Ocean Blue

blue floral romperHola! I’ve been home almost a week from Cabo now, but I am still catching myself saying a few spanish words (haha)! I’m still daydreaming about the amazing time I had on this trip. I wore this Nasty Gal romper on the second night of the trip when we went to this authentic Mexican restaurant. The sunset was absolutely beautiful (actually it was every night) so we ran down to the beach to capture a few pics before dinner. This romper is a great outfit for a beach vacation or a ridiculously hot night here in Dallas. It’s super breezy and extremely comfortable!blue floral romper blue floral romperblue floral romperblue floral romperblue floral romperTHE OUTFIT: Nasty Gal Romper // Target Gladiator Sandals // Long Bar Gold Lariat Necklace // Braided Tan Belt // Kendra Scott Stackable Rings

 

Sunset Cruise Maxi Dress

tie dye maxi dressOur first night in Cabo was too much fun. We went on a sunset cruise around the cliff to see Lovers Beach and the Cabo arch then after some dancing had a delicious dinner. The food was prepared by the boat owners wife who was the sweetest lady and so passionate about cooking. We talked for probably 30 minutes about the recipes she makes at home which have been passed down from her grandmother. She has over 100 authentic recipes she is teaching her daughter, and she was nice enough to give me her personal email so I can hopefully get some of her recipes too! tie dye maxi dresstie dye maxi dresstie dye maxi dresstie dye maxi dressTHE OUTFIT: Maxi dress (LA boutique, another favorite) // Wooden bangles // Gorjana gold ring // Gold lace earrings // Michael Kors aviators // White clutch

 

Summer Swim Suits

I can’t believe it’s already June! During high school and college summer swim suit shopping started just before spring break. These days spring break is long gone (sigh). However, even if I’m not headed to a beach I am still always at the pool or on the lake. This summer one of my favorite swim suit trends is coral which is the color of the summer. Neons and floral patterns are also big this summer. I always have a basic black suit, and I’m a huge fan of mixing and matching.
