Fashionably Cool

One of my faithful blog followers (and a fellow Zumba girl) requested some summer outfit ideas...and I was happy to help!  For me, the warmer months are all about staying cool (literally) while looking pulled together.  So these outfits are more casual but still remain polished.

Because they are to serve as inspiration, I am not including shopping info for the pieces below.  But, I tried to choose simple items that would be easy to recreate your own "look for less" version of.  Don't forget to send me your requests/suggestions for things you want to see more of - I promise to respond quickly & give you what you're looking for!

Ways to rework: Try a midi or maxi skirt instead, keeping everything else the same.  Also, if you're not a high-heel gal, you could easily swap out these sandals for a lower version or wear ballet flats.

Ways to rework: For those cooler days, you can layer a boyfriend-length cardigan or lightweight anorak on top.  Alternately, you could switch out the cropped jeans for denim cutoffs if things warm up.

Ways to rework: If you're looking for a more structured option, try a printed sleeveless blouse with a chambray blazer on top & keep the shorts and wedges.

Love these posts too. It helps me figure out outfits. I do have a request too... nursing mom ideas. ; ) I love your flow-y dresses and want one so bad for the summer but um... can't nurse a baby with that one.
