AUGUST MUST HAVES

Most of us think of August as the last month of summer as it signifies the end of our carefree days.  Soon we will be back to the grind of school and a more structured schedule – so now is the time to enjoy every last minute! August is your last chance to maximize your summer style – here is help to do just that with these amazing summer must haves. And remember – summer doesn’t actually end till September 22nd.  So you still have plenty of time to keep on flaunting your warm weather finds!

 


AUGUST MUST HAVE #1 : THE GRAPHIC TEE / TANK

 

Graphic tanks and tees are for sure a summer go to! Not to mention how extremely EASY they are to throw on in the mornings to run errands, lounge around the house, or wear to the gym while looking super cute! Wear over some leggings or a pair of shorts. To top it off, throw on some sunglasses, flip flops, or sneakers – and you are good to go. Summer means minimalistic – this item is exactly what that means!


AUGUST MUST HAVE #2 : THE COVER UP

 

Cover ups are SUCH an important summer essential. What else are you going to wear over your bathing suit en route to the beach or pool?! These adorable cover ups are the way to go! Everyone needs one (or a few 😉 ) in their closet. Not only are they useful, but they are STYLISH! They have gorgeous intricate detailing, fun pom poms, fringe, and some color that will never hurt nobody. You will for sure turn heads on the runway down to the beach.


AUGUST MUST HAVE #3 : THE BUTTON UP SHIRT

 

Simple button up shirts are a must have! They are the most versatile item in this blog. You can roll up the sleeve, tie the bottom into a side know to add decoration, wear it open, tuck it in your shorts/pants, or leave it as is. These are a beautiful relaxed fit that will work for any occasion. Wear it on a chilly summer night on the town with your friends or a special someone. Throw it over a pair of jeans and some heels or sandals and add some gorgeous jewelry to dress it up. You could also dress it down by wearing it over a pair of shorts and flip flops/ sandals, or you could wear it open over a bathing suit.

Let’s Get Graphic!

Let’s Get Graphic!

When most of us think of graphic tees, we think of an old stand by for our blue jeans or a cozy fashion forward addition to our leggings.  While those are great ways to wear your tees, I want you to think beyond jeans.  I want to show you how to flaunt your favorite image or slogan covered tee with fashion and flare.  In fact – my favorite way to wear my graphic tees, is with my skirts and dresses.  Sounds a bit odd, I know.  But once you see how easy it is to create this look with your own personal touch – I think you will be hooked too!

Go Glam or Go Home

Wear your fav tee for a girls night out or cocktails at that posh new wine bar?  YES!  Pair your graphic tee with your flowy and feminine skirts and a clutch or small shoulder bag you are good to go.  The key here is keeping everything a neutral shade with hints of black or tonal in similar shades, to let the graphic tee be the stand out item. Shown above: “Yes Way Vacay” Tee: Old Navy currently $8.40 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsKz shown with LuLaRoe Lola Skirt, Glitter Louboutin Heels and Chanel Bag.  Similar tees that would work for this look: 1.

Casual with a Kick

Love the idea of upping your style level with your graphic tees, but not quite ready to go ‘glam’?  How about a compromise.  Choose a more casual or refined skirt and a pair it with a tee that has a softer toned graphic tee.  This look works especially well with vintage feeling tees.  Add some heels and a fab bag and you have just taken your look up a notch.  Shown here: Madewell Santa Cruz Vintage Tee on sale at Madewell for $19.99 (but only size large is left) –http://shopstyle.it/l/dsR7 or at Nordstrom for $35 – http://shopstyle.it/l/dsT2 with with Shein Frayed Hem Denim skirt $46 – http://bit.ly/2eOVsxG, Vintage Fendi Bag, and Vince Camuto Heels. Similar tees that would work for this look: 1. Young American Tee at Nordstrom $68 http://shopstyle.it/l/dsUf  2.

Prepster Prints Rock Too

Do you row more to the stroke of a sporty canoe?  I love, love, love preppy printed graphic tees with my skirts and dresses.  I especially enjoy mixing textures, prints, and stripes with this category of tee.  Last night I added this anchor tee over a blue striped dress and I personally thought it was super cute!  Also try with a solid eyelet skirt or dress or over a small repeat print.  I say just have fun with it.  Keep your accessories minimal to not make the look too busy and for sure the compliments will come flowing in! Shown here: Old Navy Anchor Tee (sold out, but here is a similar one from Etsy – http://shopstyle.it/l/dtdq) with Shein Striped Criss Cross Back Swing Dress now $21!!!(size up runs a bit small) – http://bit.ly/2u0md3S  Similar tees that would work for this look:  1. Alternative Apparel Star Tee  at Nordstrom $36 –  http://shopstyle.it/l/ds0L  2.
