Simple Summer Slay

Hey loves and happy Thursday! After what felt like an eternity… summer is finally here. YAYYY! I have to say that I am really excited for what the next season brings. I’m hoping that I’m able to relax, have fun and make some great memories. When it comes to my style, I like to keep things  pretty simple. I just want to feel good in whatever I put on. Over the last couple of weeks, I was able to snag some summer fits that I absolutely love. Check them out…

Having a darker complexion, I often gravitate towards colors that will compliment my skin. I just love bright colors that pop. So you know that when I saw this orange beauty I had to have it! For one, the color is amazing! And I am just gagging over the super long wide leg (think 1970’s fab). Wearing this jumpsuit was a lot of fun- because not only is it comfy, it’s also lightweight.

 Unfortunately, there were a lot of other women that shared my love for this jumpsuit - because it's sold out :-( But you know that I got you! Here's a similar jumpsuit  that you can get.  Unfortunately, there were a lot of other women that shared my love for this jumpsuit – because it’s sold out 🙁 But you know that I got you!

I swear I fell in love with this the moment I saw it! I have been LIVING for the prints ZARA has been putting out lately. I really love the idea of co-ord sets because I can wear them together or separate. Paired with my light pink sandals, this set is so adorable! Not only is it super pretty- it’s also lightweight and flirty. I couldn’t help but feel like a 1950’s pin-up girl on vacation in Cuba…

A very close friend of mine owns an amazing online boutique. I had the pleasure of checking out her latest styles and this tie-dye maxi dress did not disappoint! I was immediately drawn to the structure of the dress and the soft colors. When I saw it, I instantly pictured myself at my beach house in the Hamptons sipping a mimosa (a girl can dream). I was sold and I just needed to have it because it fit in perfectly with my simple and effortless wardrobe! Whether I’m wearing it as a swimsuit cover-up, paired with a denim shirt, or to relax at home I feel like I can do no wrong. Another plus… it has pockets! Cha-ching!

Well there you have it. I’ve shared some of my favorite buys so far. How do you plan on slaying this summer?

    These are gorgeous outfits. I love the orange jumper but have yellow undertones and can[t do orange. But i love the lines and flow of it.
