August Outfit Obsession
If August had a color, I can only imagine that it would be blue. September feels like raspberry, gold, or wine…October would be rust orange or gold, November seems like forest green, and December into January is definitely white… But to me, August is blue. The sky is bright blue in contrast with the deep green fields, just before the grass and leaves start to turn colors. Which is perfect, because blue is my favorite color…and not just ‘blue’, but every shade of blue. So, a few years back when ombre started trending, I was in heaven. In fact, I hope it stays “in style” forever!
So here are my blue outfit obsessions that I am dreaming over on this beautiful August day:
Santorini Outfit Details:
These Gap pants are so comfy, I have them in black and love them, the fabric is stretchy and the cut is really figure flattering. Now, the blazer is definitely a preference thing, I contemplated a more neutral color, but honestly since I LOVE blue so much I went with this bold shade of blue. This is the necklace that inspired this entire outfit and the piece I am most obsessed over. I love statement pieces and this one is definitely that. Packed with sparkle and every shade of blue, I am starting to believe that somehow this piece was made just for me!! I chose these neutral kitten heel sandals because, as promised, these outfits have to be mom-friendly and no matter how cute I want to look, I will probably be chasing a toddler around at some point. Now, you could change it up a lot by adding a blue shoe, navy, or even black. This outfit can be extremely versatile, and certainly dressed up or down depending on personal style and occasion. I added this tank top to the outfit, because it’s simple and the neckline won’t detract from the beautiful statement piece. However, most of us already have a favorite white tank or tee in our closet that would work just as well.
Everyday Perfect Black Dress:
This outfit has been on my mind a lot lately. I tried the dress on at Anthropologie the other day and it was a total winner. I could do anything in this dress and feel very comfortable. I think it’s a year-round staple and guess what? It’s on sale! Dress it up or down, add a jacket – the Express (Minus the) Leather Jacket from my previous post would be perfect! These shoes are easy-to-wear, cute and very stylish. Add some bling like this necklace and bracelets from Stella and Dot and you are set for an entire year’s worth of occasions – both special and casual. I would include the Key Largo Night Belt from Anthropologie (as see in the picture) but unfortunately it was sold out. However, a simple black belt would work just as well!
Well, nap time is over so it’s time for me to stop day-dreaming…I hope you all have a wonderful, summer day!
