Summer of Style | 06

Well, well, well…looks like I’m not the only one being taken over by slime! I’m thrilled the tutorial was helpful, and Little Miss is over-the-moon with your sweet response.

Today I’m excited to share another post for Summer of Style, a weekly series showcasing a simple outfit to (hopefully) inspire your Summer wardrobe! They’re easy-to-recreate combinations, that cover all aspects of your life…work, weekend, date night, and lazy pool/beach days. Today’s dress looks great with both wedges and flat sandals, and easily dresses up or down depending on your mood.

Blue and white is the epitome of Summer, and seems to be my combo of choice this season…I think half my closet is blue! This dress is lightweight and crisp, and so fun with the asymmetrical hem. It combines all my favorite elements in a single dress…fit-and-flare silhouette, halter-style neckline, and pockets!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a regular 2. I typically wear petite sizing in this brand, but the 2P was a little too short in the front for my comfort zone.

The dress comes with a cute little belt that accentuates the waist even more, but I opted to let the other accessories shine for this outfit.

Sugarplum Style Tip: Dress the outfit down a bit with these flat sandals and a jean jacket. If bold earrings aren’t your thing, add this fun statement necklace!

The pom-pom clutch has been a favorite over the years (see it here and here, too), and has the power to completely transform an outfit! It’s a people-magnet, too, so be prepared for compliments. (Use code ‘sugarplum’ for free shipping!)

Yep, it passes the dancing test! See more from the Summer of Style series here, and more Summer Outfit Ideas here. Oh, I often get asked about the undergarments I wear with outfits like these…this bra is my saving grace more often than not, and these undies never ride up or show an outline.

See you back here tomorrow for my first picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I’ve been scouring the catalog like it’s my j.o.b., and can’t wait to share all the best deals, and classic wardrobe staples! I’ll try to have my post live extra-early for you excited shoppers! Who’s ready?!
