Summer Style Inspiration
My wardrobe is pretty plain and simple, and I love it like that. If you looked through the dresses I have hanging in my closet, you’ll see a few different colors but no patterns. I just added a lace dress from Loft to my wardrobe, but that’s as “busy” as it gets.
I alternate a few pair of jeans, neutral shorts, simple tops with the occasional maxi skirt during the spring and summer. I don’t mind the monotony of a simple outfit every day either. I enjoyed having a reason to dress up when I worked behind the chair, and I am enjoying this season of my life now that embraces a bit more casual look.
I totally understand the draw to keep the “nicer” clothes for days when you won’t be covered in baby drool, but I’m trying to wear them regardless. And baby drool comes out in the wash anyway, so as long as it isn’t silk, it should recover just fine.
Despite the fact that I’m dressing more casual, I still like to feel put together. Jewelry, bags and other accessories add just enough of a variety to my repetitive simple outfits to satisfy me. Earrings and a few rings are a daily addition to whatever I’m wearing, and on a rare occasion I’ll throw on a long necklace.
My goal for my wardrobe this summer is to be comfortable. I picked up this maxi dress at Old Navy and loved it the second I put it on. I added a few stitches around the top to keep the front panel from falling down, but other than that it’s comfortable and light for really hot day.
So are you a shorts + t-shirt kind of gal, or a light maxi dress with flat sandals wearer?
