Trends to Try for Summer

Clutch (I purchased mine at Hemline Sandestin, similar here and here)

Even though I am currently in Denver where the weather seriously just needs to pick a side (snow one day, 70 degrees the next), summer is almost here! I know it’s already summer back home in Florida and I must say that I am missing our consistently hot weather. But I am happy to see my family nonetheless!

I featured this wood clutch in last week’s post and had to dedicate a post solely to it because¬†????????. I saw this bag here and there last season but it’s back in full-force and if I am being honest… I jumped on the bandwagon. I couldn’t deny that I too wanted to sport this seemingly unrealistic handbag all summer. I am here to tell you however, that it actually conceals the contents better than you’d think. Furthermore, it’s not as unrealistic as it looks! To my surprise, this clutch functions and just happens to be statement-making! Who doesn’t love that? With my new fav clutch, I also wanted to share two additional trends to try this summer. I think you’ll find them easy to incorporate into your summer must-haves, too:

  • Pastels- You may be thinking, duh! But stick with me. I’ve always associated pastels with Easter, therefore spring. But I want to bring the dulled down tones into summer with me. Here are some picks that I’ve been eyeing recently. Can we just take a moment to revel in those knotted pink heels? Obsessed.

  • Gingham- I have an entire post on gingham coming right up because I just love it! But I wanted to first mention it here so you don’t have to wait until I get the photos edited and everything scheduled. I adore this pattern for so many reasons but mostly because it reminds me of a picnic and being outdoors. I always opt for a simple black and white gingham to avoid looking like a picnic table tablecloth… but even if I did, I wouldn’t care haha. Here are just a few gingham pieces that I have in my shopping cart:

Summer time is the best time! Long, hot days that are cooled only by chilled cocktails and sunset convos are almost here. Are you ready? What are your favorite ways to transition your wardrobe into full-summer mode?

Thank you for reading today! I hope you have a great Tuesday (Oh, and it snowed again in Denver today. Wish me luck)!
