My Summer Fashion Go-To’s!

Hello, All my Darling Divas!
That fabulous day of the week has finally arrived! Blogpost day! The weather has kicked up, and the only thing that is on my mind is ” What am I going to Wear??” I had that issue earlier this week, and it caused me to think about the pieces that I gravitate to when the temperature is high! So grab a notebook and sit back and check out what I like to wear in the Summer!

I hope you enjoyed! What are your Summer Fashion Go-To’s? Comment them down below to let me know!

Video Recap! 

Shift Dresses are a must-have for my Summer wardrobe! They are simple, super casual, and I can quickly throw them on! Most of them have pockets, so that’s always a plus!
Maxi Skirts for me are the best thing ever created! I feel like they allow me to create more outfits, and I actually prefer them instead of maxi dresses! I also love that they can be dressed up and down! https://i2.wp.com/demandware.edgesuite.net/aaqe_prd/on/demandware.static/-/Sites-eloquii-catalog/default/dwf14dfdd3/images/xlarge/1193815_002_1.jpg
 Kimono’s were made for Summer! They are great for layering over outfits and even can be used as cover-ups for your bathing suit! That type of versatility is just what my closet needs for the season!

Printed Pants are my ultimate favorite look for Summertime! They are really inexpensive, and come in all types of colors, styles, and prints! Some can be palazzo, some can be harem ,but at the end of the day if they are printed and light-weight then they are a must for me!

Pencil Skirt Pusher

Hello All My Darling Divas,

Happy Friday! I don’t know about you, but I am so excited for the weekend! Before you go off to do all your fabulous activities, I wanted to stop up here to talk about my latest obsession: pencil skirts! They come in all different types, all different colors, and today I will proving to you why you need a pencil skirt in your wardrobe! So sit back, enjoy the video, and be prepared to be convinced why you need once in your life!

Did you enjoy the video? Are you running out to get a pencil skirt yet? If this essential piece is not in your closet yet, I hope I have convinced you why you need a couple in your life! Let’s recap what you saw in the video!

Types of Pencil Skirts
Peplum Pencil Skirt
This style is great for hourglass figures, or for ladies who loveee to show off and define their waist. I personally am one of those ladies, so I always love when I get the chance to wear this skirt! It looks great with a top tucked in to show off the peplum design!

Stretch

If you have a little more lovin’ going on in your tummy area, pick a pencil skirt that has some stretch! Fabrics such a cotton, ponte, and jersey are great fabrics that are comfortable and flattering on the tummy!

Midi
The midi length pencil skirt is great for if you don’t want to show as much leg and are a bit conservative,  or/and if you are a tall lady such as myself! It will make your legs look amazing, and you can adjust how short or long you want it! Just wear it just above your waist to make it longer, or wear it high waisted to make it shorter.
 


The Looks
Night Out
 Top, Skirt, and belt from Fashion to Figure
I would pair this look with pumps or pencil flats for a night out with my girls!
Casual
Jacket: Rachel Roy ( Via Dia&Co)
Top- Amazon
Skirt- Fashion to Figure ( Via Dia&Co)
 100% of my life is casual, so I would wear this to work( which is a casual setting), or on weekends with friends!

 Work

Top-Torrid
Skirt-LoveLianca
 If your job is business casual, then this look is great for you! Pair it with flats or sensible heels!
