I couldn’t be more excited to get ready for summer, and that means lots of fun jumpsuits, rompers, cool kicks, and shades. This coming weekend I am going to Nantucket for the first time, and for me it feels like the kickoff to summer. When I am traveling, bringing along a fun romper and jumpsuit that can go from day to night is key. This piece from Socialite Clothing available at Nordstrom is absolutely perfect. Not only is it sexy but you can certainly wear it with sandals and hop on a bike into town.
The colors are also fun and nautical, pretty much screaming island fever. I love the way this piece flows in the wind, as it definitely is fitting for a night of dancing around the town. Not only that, but this time of year I love to pick up fun shades that have some color to them. This pair from Lulus are fun and under $25!
Another rule of thumb when I travel is to have an easy and fun backpack with me. This B.P. piece from Nordstrom is under $50. Metallic is fun, and it will go with many different pieces of my wardrobe. I bike a ton in the summer, and a backpack evens out the weight. This one is small as well, so it doubles as a cool going out bag. Bandanas are still going strong, so pick one up and wear it in your hair, on your wrist, or as a choker!
Yes, I know not everyone is into the adidas slides for summer, as they are harder to pull off. You can easily pair this romper with a cute summer sandal, and if you are wanting to take a risk pair them with something dressier. These are super casual, so they definitely will be mixed into my am coffee runs with sweats.
If you buy a fun piece this summer, make it a jumpsuit or a romper that can go from day to night. Some of my other favorites are below!
One of my favorite things about this season is that I can break out my jumpsuits. This easy piece works in so many different ways from day to night. What I love about Spring 2017, is that the pajama trend is still happening, and so there are lots fresh takes happening to change up this look.
This floral jumpsuit from Topshop definitely fits the trend of lingerie inspired pieces. I love that it is silk, but you can still make if feel casual yet pretty with the lace details. Duster coats are another big trend, and this one caught my eye for the color. It is a soft lavender, that can be mixed with almost any look. I will even pair this with some of my sporty looks when I am running around town.
Gold statement jewelry and crossbody bags are a favorite of mine. I usually am always carrying a bag like this because I tend to walk or take the subway. This simple black handbag from Topshop is only $50 and holds everything that you need for the day. Try some bolder jewelry as well. I love missing in fun bracelets when I can, and this set from H&M is a score for under $20.
Don’t forget the sneakers. Adidas has definitely made a fun comeback this year, and I love all their pastel color Gazelles. This mint green pair add a fun mix to this jumpsuit, but you can certainly wear it in the evening with a great chunky heel.
Well, what can I say, is it time to pack up my winter coat and get ready for Spring? The weather has been gorgeous this last week, and it has me lusting for all things fashion. When the sun comes out here in the city, the energy becomes even more alive. There is nothing better then sitting at an outdoor patio working and watching people go by, or hitting a rooftop deck for happy hour cocktails.
On my hit list for the season is a denim jumpsuit. They are one of those items that are not only playful, but they can easily be worn several different ways. This fun striped piece from 7 For All Mankind is just my style. Not only can it be worn on its own, but it looks just as cute layered with a shirt underneath. For the evening, a fun varsity jacket and heels can give it even more attitude.
One of my favorite trends that has carried over from last season is the off the shoulder top. I found this adorable white one at H & M. Not only will I be wearing it with this jumpsuit, but paired with simple jeans and some sneakers, it still has a great sex appeal to it. Don’t forget to pick up a fun hat this season as well. From baseball caps to straw fedoras, this accessory always adds a little punch to any look.
When it comes to shoes, we all know that I love a good sneaker, but a fun trend I am totally digging is the work boot. Yes, the timberland style is back and it is easy to work right into your wardrobe. It looks just perfect with this look and adds a bit of edge when mixed with the feminine blouse and jumper. I would also wear them with my long maxi skirts and blouses as well during the day to mix things up. Also, a simple handbag is all the rage right now. This one from J.Crew has been on my rotation because it isn’t too big to carry around the city.
As we all know the jumpsuit has made a huge comeback and is here to stay. It is one of my favorite looks for a night out, and it is especially a great piece to transition from Summer to Fall. I absolutely love this cobalt blue jumper from Black Halo, as their structured pieces fit every body type (and believe me on this).
