Endless Summer

(Sigh) Why can’t summer last forever? It seems like the season takes forever to get here, and when it does finally arrive, it leaves in a blink of an eye. I know the official end to summer isn’t until the end of September but I realized the days are getting shorter and the kiddies are back in school (same with me) but I can’t complain because I had one of the best summers ever. Some of the highlights of my summer include interning with a great fashion company, learning tons about the fashion industry, having more time to blog, and vacationing to the Hamptons a few times.

In today’s post, I am showing you one of my favorite summer outfits that can be easily transitioned into the fall. It took me some time to warm up to the flared leg trend, but I am obsessed with all things flared. What struck me the most about my Madewell pants is the flared detail and the beautiful rose color. I believe this deep rose color will be perfect for the fall. The color kind of reminds me of the leaves soon to be turning colors.

Since I am “new” to the flared trend, I have not really been experimenting too much when it comes to pairing tops with flared pants. I usually stick to the basics like this slim fitting Madewell cream-colored tank. I like to tuck my shirt in because when styling flared pants I always like to keep the proportions in set, tight on the top and loose and flowy on the bottom.

Everyone always asks why I choose to wear a sweater even when the temperatures are in the high 80s. I do so because I feel like it completes my outfit and besides I usually wear it off my shoulders. All fashionistas should have a basic light tan colored cardigan in their wardrobe, like mine from Marshall’s. Never underestimate the power of a simple cardigan completing any outfit.

I do wish I was a little taller so I wouldn’t have to wear heels or wedges with my flared pants. But my brown strappy heels by Candie’s does the trick by giving me some extra height and adding major style to any look.

One way to celebrate all year long is by wearing this seashell necklace from H&M. I love this necklace paired against the deep burgundy of my pants.

Lastly, what’s a summer outfit without my favorite straw hat from H&M and favorite pair of sunglasses by Steve Madden? So of course, I had to include these essentials in this look.

Every year I always wonder why we can’t have an endless summer. Only a few more weeks of summer left, so time to take advantage of the beautiful weather and season and show you all my favorite summer looks. Let me know in the comments below what some of your summer looks have been on repeat this season.

    Your outfit looks so cute and comfy! Buuuuuut my fave part is actually your hair. That bomb is so cute and frames your face so nicely. And then it just goes with your attire oh so nicely. Great job!
