Mornings are chilly and nights are cooler -- we are now on the last few weeks of Summer 2011. However, the next couple of days for us over here in Los Angeles will be reeeaalllyyy hot -- temperature is going up to triple digits, guys!
Instead of complaining about the heat though, I thought why not plan some cute outfits to celebrate the upcoming end of Summer 2011? ;)
Out and About:
Summer is all about being out and about -- meeting up with friends for lunch or dinner, spending some time at the mall, hanging out at the beach or by the pool, running errands...
I love this outfit because it's simple, but still has a lot of character. I haven't tried using my bathing suit as a top, but I think it would look great (you just might have a bit of a hard time if you have to use the restroom, though).
But I think I will try that one of these days. Imagine how convenient that would be -- hit the mall, go to lunch, or run errands in the morning, then go to the beach after - you're already wearing your bathing suit = no problem. ;)
I would also keep a pair of flip flops in my bag so as not to wet my sandals.
It's all about the skirt:
I think it's also important to own skirts that can be styled in different ways, like this beautiful red skirt. Go girly with a floral top and wedges or go for a casual and laid back look with a white tank top, flats, a fedora hat, and feather earrings. :)
There will surely be beach BBQ invitations left and right, especially around Labor Day.
I am more comfortable wearing a one-piece suit so I will go for something like this one -- that peekaboo hole adds a little sexiness to the look.
I probably won't feel comfortable walking around with just my bathing suit on though, so I would need a cover-up. Accessorize with sunglasses and bangles, and don't forget your flip flops and beach bag!
If you need to be a little more formal, you can't go wrong with dresses. And the great thing about these is you can easily transition the look from summer to fall -- just add tights and a blazer!
Which of these looks did you like the most? What are your go-to summer styles? Do you have any summer outfits planned that you haven't had the chance to wear?
I wish all of you a great week ahead -- enjoy the last few weeks of summer!!! :D
