Summer of Style | Crushing on Yellow

Happy hump day, friends! How’s your week been so far? Today I’m excited to bring back my seasonal series, Summer of Style! My goal is always to inspire you, but also share ways to stretch your wardrobe. You’ve probably noticed that my style posts typically involve multiple styling options… but sometimes a girl just wants a simple outfit idea!

Especially in Summer, when the pace is slower, and style becomes a little simpler and more minimal. (At least in the Texas heat it does!) So Summer of Style is just that… simple outfits 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. (See them all HERE.)

I’m having a major crush with yellow lately, and I can’t think of a happier color to kick off this year’s Summer of Style!


Color Block Shirt Dress (Plus Size HERE) | Wedges | Hoop Earrings

This shirt dress is all kinds of summer fun… with a crisp cotton poplin that’s cool for the season, and sporty stripes of yellow and white. I love the little collar, and the fun hem gives it a dressier, feminine touch.

Fit Tip: I’m wearing a 2

Kendra Scott continues to wow with her new collections, and the latest summer launch is no exception! Hammered metals, chunky stones, and the cutest color-wrapped hoops, I’m smitten with them all, and all are perfect for summer styles.

Every girl needs a good wedge, and this neutral pair is a great, leg-lengthening neutral, and the right height for being both cute and comfy.

Fit Tip: I sized up half.

The only thing happier than yellow, is maybe a yellow lemon print! Summer is my favorite season for fashion, not only for the light and breezy fabrics and laid back styles, but for the joyful colors, prints, and patterns!

This skirt is the epitome of happy summer style, with a midi length and fun, flared hem that makes you feel like twirling! It’s a silky viscose material that’s fitted through the waist and hips, with a side zipper closure. You could definitely dress it up, but I love to keep it casual with this easy henley tank. (Only $12! How’s that for some high-low fashion!?)

Fit Tip: The skirt is a fitted style, so I’d size up if you’re fuller through the bum and hips (like me). I’m in an XS, but would prefer a small for more room. The tank is stretchy and a tad cropped, I sized up to a small.

More Kendra Scott faves… this star necklace has been on repeat for months (as are these cute butterflies!), and these wrapped hoops are my latest find. I adore them in both the pink and blue combos! I love ordering from Nordstrom for fast and free shipping, plus easy returns.
