As I’m gearing up for all my summer trips I wanted to gather a collection of pieces that define what summer is all about: sunny, bright, and a lot of fun! I put two ensembles together that I’ll be taking with me on the first leg of my trip to the sunshine state.

The first ensemble includes a pair of J. Crew shorts lined with fine ruffles around the top and pockets. It’s a wide cuffed piece, which accentuates petite legs. It has a linen feel and very comfortable, the fabric isn’t as thick as it looks and would be perfect for hot summer nights. It comes in additional colors: white, pink, lilac, shell, and black. It’s on sale for $44 + 30% off! I finished the look with THE Rattan Clutch that I have been coveting for the past month [which I will be using all summer], and Forever 21 Espadrille Wedges that I got for $10 [I seriously feel like I’m winning here].

The second look is more feminine with a textured dress [SIMILAR 1, SIMILAR 2] wrapped in a linen button up [SIMILAR]; my signature pop of color for every outfit! I love the loose fit of the drop waist style, the ideal attire for all the eating I do during Sunday brunches with the girls.

Notice that I used my Rattan Clutch with both outfits? It’s because I’m determined to show that a a straw clutch can match every single thing you wear and for any event! The leather closure adds sophistication to the piece making it appropriate for even a formal event. The closure also has a magnetic reinforcement which ensures nothing will fall out. The inside is lined with a blue/white seersucker fabric and a card pocket. It’s big enough to fit my bulky keys, cell phone, credit cards, and an oversized tube of lip gloss.

Style Tip: Wear a button up and tie it in a knot to accentuate the waist and add a fun relaxed style to any dress or skirt. You can see me always wearing a button up [SIMILAR] with a summer dress as I tend to get cold. It’s also how I avoid having to carry a bulky jacket around [same style seen HERE].
