My Summer Style

Summer Fashion, Summer Style

I talked about my ideal summer style a few weeks ago. This is one variation on the type of outfit I've pretty much been living in for most of the season. The idea of it is simple enough just as the components are easily interchangeable. I own two vintage denim midi skirts and this one gets the slight edge because it has pockets. And I may need an intervention when it comes to striped shirts but I can't get enough of them. This Gap top actually combines my love for stripes and polka dots at once. Most of my sandals are metallic as I consider them neutrals. These Worishofer's are quite stylish for German orthopedic sandals. The Louis Vuitton crossbody was my Mom's. She gave it to me years ago but I only started to actively use it more recently. I find jewelry uncomfortable when it's hot so I just pare it down to a necklace and it doesn't always have to be a statement one. The sunglasses and hat are a no brainer for sun protection. Some of you have asked me about outfit posts and this is probably as close I'll get for now. They're just not my thing which explains why I've done exactly one since the start of this blog. Do you have a summer uniform?

I've started posting Eye Candy Single Shots on my Facebook page. This is for when only one photo in an entire editorial catches my eye. Since I wouldn't devote an entire post to a single image and still want to share these, I thought this would be a good way to do that. The first one features a totally glammed up Park Shin Hye.

Hi Rowena, I remember your previous post about summer style, which is so close to mine as well, thats why I simply adore your unifor for these hot days. The vintage denim midi skirt is so nice, I want a similar one too! But my fav piece is for for sure the crossbody bag, what a gem! Im sure you look so pretty with this combo, you should post an outfit soon since much time is passed from the last one :) The idea of eye candy single shots is perfect, that one is charming! Many kisses and have a great week dear! xo

What a lovely outfit, for summer yes, I suppose if I had a "uniform" it definitely intels a great hat and tank, etc. I think the crossbody bag is the perfect size as well. xx/Madison :)

SO lovely! I adore that vintage midi skirt, and that stripes and polkadot mix shirt is just darling! I know what you mean—I can't wear a lot of jewelry or bulky pieces in the summer heat. I usually just stick to delicate rings and maybe a small necklace. My ideal summer uniform is a flowy, loose-fitting dress. Great for those hot days when you don't want tight clothing restricting/sticking to you!

Dale Janee said...

I love that yellow hat! It's the perfect look with the striped top.

what a great summer "uniform". i could see this look in almost any warm-weather situation - it's comfortable, casual, yet put-together and polished. the perfect combo, if you ask me. ;)
