There’s something about the sun shining and the warm breeze that makes summer the time to re-evaluate your wardrobe staples, highlighting your favorite basics, your must-have statement pieces, and your summer necessities, like sunglasses and a hat.
Who wants to spend hours getting ready in the morning when the sun is streaming through your windows and everyone is out enjoying the heat? Not me! Throwing on jeans and a simple tee is a great alternative to rummaging through your overflowing closet for your wildest showstopper pieces. Relaxing outside with friends calls for an equally relaxing outfit, with just one small caveat: simple and relaxed clothing is fine, but pairing it with compliment-worthy accessories makes it even better!
It’s all about the eyewear in the Summer! Bold shades take the attention from your clothing to your face, so why not add a pair of boho-inspired chandelier earrings!
Your feet are in luck as well because this Summer some of the cutest shoes have been flat slip-on sandals or mules! Check out the StyleChat app to find out where you can buy all the hot items featured in the above look!
This week’s outfit of the week goes to a cozy look worn by Brooke on the Two in June blog. Brooke proves that it is possible to look stylish while dressing comfy. She wears a pair of ripped black skinny jeans with a thick, bulky grey ribbed sweater. The ripped jeans add a sense of casualness to the look. To keep the look consistently comfy, she wears a pair of black booties that not only look super comfortable, but also super stylish and on-trend.

This week’s outfit of the week is inspired by an Olivia Palermo look that is featured on the blog, Beauty by Karis. We love it because it’s comfy, casual, and unassumingly sexy. Look for a pair of soft skinny blue jeans with a few rips and a touch of fading. Pair it with a white long-sleeve blouse then throw on a pair of red strappy high heels to add a splash of color to the look! The shoes will make your legs look long and lean. Lastly, grab a simple beige clutch, perhaps one that has a bit of studding or gold detailing, and you’ll be ready to rock the streets!
