30 Summer Outfit Ideas

Happy Friday, friends, and cheers to the weekend! It’s been a busy week behind the computer…we’ve been working hard designing our next Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection!

Normally I travel to LA for a 2-day power planning session, but it’s incredible what we’re able to accomplish thanks to Zoom and FedEx! We’ve narrowed down the actual pieces and fabrics for each, up next is colors and patterns (we dye our own fabric and design custom patterns!)

The Gibson team continues to blow my mind every day! Cue the confetti, because this Collection will bring so much cheer to the upcoming seasons! Any guesses what it is?

But today we’re talking summer. It may be my favorite season, but this is about the time the heat starts to zap my interest in wearing anything other than a t-shirt or swimsuit. In case you’re running low on inspiration, too, I rounded up 30 of my favorite outfits lately.

    My guesses for the new collection: Lounge-wear (joggers, sweatshirts etc) that can be worn out, pajamas, maybe a comfy sweater or cardigan in the mix?? :0)

    Cassie, you have so many great ideas and the items always look better on you than the company websites! Seriously. You make me take notice when otherwise, I would have scrolled right on past. I always receive lots of compliments on the things you have recommended. 🙂

    My recent Amazon find: the cutest floral, ruffle cap sleeve top that is just your style. Great material and quality for $16.99. Search “ZKESS Women Casual Ruffle Sleeveless V Neck Floral Printed Button Down”. I got the blue floral. Washes and holds up well, doesn’t wrinkle, and feels so nice!
