Fashion Inspiration for August

There’s no denying it, the dog days of summer are here and I say finally.    Temperatures are up, school is out, there’s plenty of beach and pool time, and our summer wardrobes are finally being put to use.   In addition, it’s a wonderful time of year to shop some amazing summer sales.  It’s all good and I want to help you hang onto that “ I love summer” feeling by sharing some of my favorite fashion finds. There’s no doubt in my mind that you will find these pieces fashionable, practical, and will keep you stylish for the rest of summer (many of these finds will even take you into fall!).   Happy August!

Fashion inspiration for August 

The Paris Sleeveless Blouson Dress  – by Ramy Brook – this is the perfect summer that doesn’t make you feel overdressed or underdressed.   I have it in royal blue and it is one of my favorite go-to-summer dresses. It’s such an easy dress to wear and it’s right for just about every summer event/party.   It has a smocked drop waist that is figure-flattering on all body-types.  Like I said, it’s perfect!  Styling Advice:  this dress runs big so size one size down.

The Antibes Scallop Bathing suit  (high-neck halter top)  – by Marysia – this bathing suit is stunning on and extremely comfortable!  The scallop edges gives this bathing suit a playful and whimsical feeling. The high-neck halter is not only stylish, but also provides protection to your chest from the dangerous sun rays.   This swimsuit is worth the price.

The  Cortese sneaker –  by Nike – this sneaker is having its moment right now and is the “it” sneaker for summer 2017.    Nike has brought back this iconic style for it’s 45th anniversary and offers it in an array of colors.  It’s a favorite for street-style celebrities.  So super retro and fun!

The Pinstriped Poplin Asymmetrical Ruffle Shirt – by Self-Portrait – this extremely chic top has just about every trend this season blended into one shirt!  It has an asymmetrical neckline, one cold shoulder, and ruffle details.  It packs in a great deal of style and looks fabulous with shorts and jeans.  This piece will definitely take you into fall quite happily.

The Prima Mid-Rise Cigarette Jeans – by AG  – clearly the white jean is a summer classic and must have.    Without question, this jean by AG is the most comfortable and flattering in white jeans.   The fabric is light enough to wear in warm temperatures, but thick enough not to show any imperfections.   The best white jean on the market!
