33 Summer Outfit Ideas

Cheers to almost Friday, friends! We’re flying home tonight and arriving before dawn tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see how the kids respond to the time change coming home! It’s been a dream trip, but I’m mostly going to desperately miss all the dedicated family time once we’re home. And to make it worse, our son leaves for camp Sunday!

But today is all about Summer…and to celebrate the first official day of Summer (!!!), I’m sharing 33 outfit ideas to inspire you…yep, thirty-three! That’s a whole month of closet inspiration in one spot! How’s that for a happy Summer?!

Sidenote: Many of the links are expired, but I found similar items wherever possible!

  4. It’s official. You need to live somewhere that’s summer temps all year long.

    I understand completely about missing “dedicated family time” with your family. We just got back from vacation and the hardest part was knowing there wouldn’t be as much family time when we got home. I have two teens and one is working. My husband works a job where he isn’t home a lot and I so enjoyed having 24/7 family time so we could all reconnect. To make it harder, my oldest is leaving for college in a couple of months and our whole family dynamic is about to change. Ugh, change…..normal, necessary, but oh so hard! Can’t wait to see pictures from your trip.

    I love your style — your outfits are always so cheerful and colorful without being fussy or overdone. And being in my 40’s too, I appreciate that you don’t look like you’re dressing too old or too young… it’s just right! 😘

    Like you and your blog. You have inspired my style and have gained compliments from those garments. One of my local dressshops sponsors a charity that assists girls in the foster system. Have you considered enlisting your readers in charitable causes that are near to your heart? This is especially relevant as we see such sad news from the Texas border these days. Have you considered modeling items from businesses that provide support or work for women?
