Summer Style Inspiration

Hey y’all!!! (For the record, I’m totally not southern, actually like the opposite of southern, I’m a born and raised northwest hippie, but I freaking love southern accents so why not!)  Now that I’m done rambling and now that it’s officially summer I thought I would share some of my favorite summer pieces…Since we live way too far away from any decent department stores I have become an excellent online stalker/shopper!

To start this off I am going to share my favorite places to online shop…

Nordstrom (Obviously!)  I find myself doing most of my online shopping here because they are amazing with returns…If things don’t fit I will either ship it back with their prepaid label or collect items in my closet and return them down in Seattle when we make our weekend trips.  I have never once had an issue with them, tags on or off!  Oh and PS – the anniversary sale starts July 22, you can sneak preview some of the sales!

Revolve Clothing – This site is amazing.  They have everything you could possibly want and more, not to mention mega fast shipping.  I find myself mainly shopping here for special occasions because they have a great filter system.  I love that you can put in your exact price point, style, color, etc.  They have a super bohemian vibe which is my jam so I find myself scrolling through their clothes for hours, it’s actually quite pathetic now that I think about it.

ASOS – They are the bomb!  (I know no one says that anymore)  There is almost TOO much stuff on this site but you can find cute things for super cheap.  I did a lot of my maternity shopping here. They also have a cool free 2 day shipping program here, kind of like Amazon Prime.  (Don’t even get me started on my prime membership, the delivery guys know me far too well)

Shopbop – SPLURGE!  But they have really nice quality things and free 2 day shipping with your amazon prime account.

Lulus – This place is amazing for dresses!  I have purchased several dresses off this site and have loved all of them.  The best part…totally affordable.  Chaaa ching!

Favorite Summer Trends

  • Off the Shoulder Shirts
  • Floppy Hats
  • Rompers
  • Kimonos
  • One piece bathing suits
  • Lace up sandals
  • 70s shades
  • Bright lips (The YSL stain I linked below is the absolute best…stays on all dang day!) Tip – If you want a bolder & longer lasting look, apply one layer, dab your lips onto paper towel, then apply layer over the top, really cements it in place and layers the look!  I also use YSL Babydoll mascara and it’s the shit!

I am linking some of my favorite pieces (and most reasonably priced) I have found for the summer, just click on the photo to take you there, enjoy you scrumptious babes!!!
Oh yeah and best part..all under $100 (minus the Ray-Bans, but I got mine when Nordstrom was doing their 25% off sale, watch for that!)
