5 Easy Summer Looks

When the hottest season rolls around, I always find myself singing, “summertime, and the livin’s easy...” in my head. There’s just something about the summer that makes you want to kick back, relax, and enjoy a nice frozen daiquiri on an island somewhere. Although the reality of that happening is usually reserved for vacation days, that doesn’t mean you can’t carry the carefree attitude into your everyday summer style. Summer is the season I want to spend the least amount of time on my outfits.

That’s why I decided to put together these five great go-to outfits that will take you straight through summertime with no hassles and minimal frustration. The key is to have some easy favorites on-hand so that no matter where you’re going, you have something you know will look great and keep you cool in the summer heat. Here are five easy summer looks that anyone can pull off.

Selfie Chronicles: Havana White

It's Memorial Day weekend, which in New Orleans means  tables overflowing with boiled crawfish  and of course pool parties! For the first pool party of the weekend, I pulled out this beauty courtesy of MonifC. This is my first MonifC swimsuit and I have to say it's one of the best swimsuits I own. The fit is perfect and I love that the back of the suit is enclosed for a smooth look.  I love it so much I've decided to host a giveaway on my Instagram account so one of you lucky readers can win one of your own!!

70's Flare

Lately, my style has been leaning more towards the 70's era, which of course is not a bad thing. I love everything about the 70's from the fashion to the music. I went so far as to ordering these huge vintage 70's frames to add my prescription to for everyday use (If you're going to do it, you gotta do it big). So when I came across this jumpsuit from Simply Be I had to own it. It has been less than a month and I've worn this jumpsuit 3 times. Yup! .I'm obsessed!

Bohemian Vibes

Well my week started with a bang! I was in my first magazine feature! Style Watch Magazine contact me months ago for a piece they were writing about coordinating sets where they referenced the banana leaf print pant set I designed last summer (view here). I know its a little victory for most bloggers but it means so much to me! As you all may know I'm not very consistent as most style bloggers, mostly due to my work and personal life. So seeing the little blogging I do here and there get recognized is amazing! I originally took the bottom pic to send to friends and family. My immediate family begged me to send more pictures of my complete outfit so I decided to make it into a blog post! Enjoy!

Shrimp is Always A Good Idea

 I couldn't imagine someone loving shrimp as much as I do. To be honest the delicious crustacean was one of the reasons why I moved to New Orleans. So imagine my excitement when I found African wax fabric with  large shrimp all over it. With the few yards the seller had I managed to make a flyaway jacket, wrap skirt, and even a small throw pillow for my balcony.

Saturday Stroll

Lately my Saturdays have been  filled with uncompleted tasks, hulu, and wine. I mixed it up a bit this weekend and did some exploring in the french quarter.After a nice brunch (wine included) a couple friends and I took a stroll around the Quarter and managed to snap a few pics of my outfit.

In the Jungle

Its been a while since my last post, mainly because I haven't been dressing up much. These days I'm either at work or relaxing at my new place in some yoga pants. So when I finally found some time to go out I had to do it with a bang and of course it was captured.
