Mid-Summer Ease

So many of you have commented that you love when I share day to evening looks, so I'm planning to incorporate more of these types of posts on a regular basis.  Today I'm highlighting three effortless summer outfits that will take you from day to beach to evening - there's something here for everyone & the best part is that everything is on sale now + you can get an extra 15% off your purchase with code BIGSAVER!  Several of you have also asked about wardrobe planning for travel and all of these looks would be great for any weekend getaways or warm-weather destinations you're heading to.


When I have a long to-do list in hand, the last thing I want to think about is putting together a cute outfit.  So I rely on easy basics like these that I know will keep me cool & comfortable while I'm running around town.  I love anything in chambray and the subtle pattern + relaxed fit is of this casual skirt is perfect for those hot summer days (I'd also wear this with a gray tank & white denim jacket).  Everyone needs a classic white shirt and I love that this one is an ultra-soft rayon blend, rather than poplin cotton, so it's ideal for knotting at the waist or layering under sweaters when the weather gets cooler.  It also comes in 16 other colors & prints, including some great plaids for fall!

What I'm wearing:
c/o SO Perfectly Soft Shirt (wearing a Small), c/o Sonoma Goods for Life Linen-Blend Skirt (wearing size 4), 
c/o Apt. 9 Two-Piece Espadrille Sandals (also in black), c/o Sonoma Goods for Life Saddle Bag (also love this one),
c/o LC Lauren Conrad Bracelets, c/o LC Lauren Conrad RingSimilar Earrings


I love the idea of one-piece swimsuits, but I've always had the hardest time finding one that fits well through the torso, isn't too high-cut on the leg & still flatters my shape.  This red braided suit exceeded all my expectations and got my husband's stamp of approval.  The ruching detail in front creates a slimming effect & I love that it's modern and chic without being too revealing.  I topped it off with a gauzy off-the-shoulder cover-up & brought along this graphic chevron tote, which was large enough to hold my towel, sunscreen, water bottle & snacks for a day at the beach.

What I'm wearing:
c/o Hawaiian Tropic Off-The-Shoulder Cover-Up, c/o Apt. 9 Braided One-Piece Swimsuit
c/o Big Buddha Chevron Tote, c/o Linum Home Textiles Beach Towel, Similar Sandals, Similar Hat


I've been trying to branch out & wear more color this season and this jewel-toned midi dress instantly caught my eye.  The floral jacquard pattern is simply gorgeous and the full skirt moves so gracefully when you walk.  I love the pretty tie detail in back and, thanks to the adjustable straps and elastic waist, I didn't need to add a belt to get a perfect fit.  While I was heading to the checkout with my dress in hand, I stumbled into the beauty section at Kohl's & found this long-wear lipstick, which is the prettiest deep berry shade.  I've never tried this brand before, but I was so impressed with the ultra-pigmented formula and that it stayed put all through drinks & dinner with my husband.
