Summer of Style | 02

Today I’m excited to share the latest outfit in my new weekly series, Summer of Style. And considering how many times I’ve worn it, I think it’s safe to say this is my new Summer uniform!

My goal is always to inspire you, and share ways to stretch your wardrobe…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…a weekly 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. And today’s dress is so versatile, it could take you from pool to dinner, and then to the mall the next day! Or maybe that’s just me.

You may recall I fell head-over-heels with this maxi (actually intended as a midi…#shortgirlscore!) in a recent Dressing Room Diaries, and just couldn’t leave it behind. The crisp cotton is so soft and lightweight, and moves easily without clinging. It feels amazing on, and shows just enough skin to give it a subtle sexiness…perfect for Summer nights! And did I mention it has pockets?!

True, it’s on the low-cut side, but that’s the perk of small boobs! However, this dress has several 5-star reviews from large-chested gals! I don’t feel overexposed (for most occasions, anyway), and the back is insanely flattering! If it’s too low for your taste, or you have a larger chest, this one has a higher neck and this one is only $38!

Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS regular…so it’s perfect maxi length with flat sandals. If you prefer a midi length (or you’re shorter, obviously), opt for the petite sizing. I wear it with these pasties for a little extra coverage, and to help keep the dress in place.

Of course my favorite accessory is back for Summer…the elephant bag charm! I’ve had this cutie for years, and it makes almost every bag cuter. I even have them hanging from lamps and baskets all around our house (proof here, here and here)! #obsessed If you want to add some flair to your bag, use code SUGARPLUM15 for 15% off your own pom-pom charm! (No joke, I have five!) #sorrynotsorry

Do you have a black maxi in your Summer wardrobe? If not, I highly recommend one…they are so incredibly versatile, plus super comfy for so many occasions. They’re always my go-to when I know we’ll be sitting in grass, too…they’re like a built-in blanket! Am I the only one who’s brain thinks like that?!

Also, I’m featuring this gorgeous skirt next week, but just noticed it’s 40% off…so you might want to jump on it!

    You’re so cute! Random question – do you have a list of all of the Colleen Rothschild products you use somewhere on your blog? I know you did an Instagram story recently where you showed everything but I can’t remember it all!

      Thanks Monica!! I don’t have a specific list, but my fave products are the cleansing balm, sheer renewal cream, and the detox & enzyme masks. The Discovery Kit is a good way to try a little bit of all the faves to see what you like best!

    Hi Cassie! Great look! Is the straw tote fabric-lined? Looking to buy it as a beach tote and want to make sure it will keep sand away from my stuff! 🙂 Thanks

      Thanks Kate! This bag is not lined, but it’s a thick weave, so I wouldn’t think sand could get through the bottom? It’s more of a everyday bag size, too…wouldn’t hold a bunch of towels, snacks, etc!;)
