The Classic Summer Look
I’m starting things off with the most classic summer look. What is more classic than cutoff denim shorts and a striped button-down combo? Nothing my friends and having these two staple pieces are a must for every summer wardrobe. You complete the look with my favorite slide sandals and gold hoops. Finally, switch out the white button-down for a neutral tee for a more casual pairing.
The Chic Summer Look
Going with a monochromatic look is the easiest way to make any outfit look expensive and chic. So if you have some things in your closet that are the same color throw them together and see what you come up with! If you’re ready to treat-yo-self to this look pair these affordable trousers with an off-the-shoulder top.
Complete the look with heeled mules and a chic neutral bag this shoulder bag is a favorite and goes with everything. If you’re looking for something more budget-friendly try this JW Pei which is the perfect summer accessory. Orchid and kelly green are going to be very hot this summer!
The Summer Mini Dress Look
This L*SPACE mini-dress look can be worn on many different occasions. Whether you’re going to a beach wedding, a date night, a pool day, or a girls’ night out. You can wear this mini for all these events. However you decide to wear it, pair it with strappy heels, a chic bag, and simple hoops for the perfect look this summer.
The Date Night Look
Depending on the date night you are going on, I wanted to include two options for you! When it comes to planning a casual date night, striking the perfect balance between comfort and style is key. You want an outfit that showcases your personality while creating an effortless, yet elegant, vibe. Whether you’re heading out for a relaxed dinner, catching a movie, or enjoying a romantic stroll, this casual date night look will leave a lasting impression.
For your casual date night look don the outfit on the left. This Norma Kamali white top is so chic and can be worn with simple straight-leg jeans, a fun summer bag, Sam Edelman heels, and gold earrings.
Next, the dressy date night look is perfect for a dinner night out with your boo. This chic maxi dress from Revolve is a fan favorite and looks great paired with these strappy heels, a raffia purse, and simple hoops. Throw your hair in a slick bun to complete the cool girl look.
The Casual Summer Look
If you are headed to the city this summer, you need to try this casual summer look! I call this the casual cool city slicker look and you can achieve this by wearing denim shorts, pairing them with white sneakers (size up in those), throwing on a graphic tee, chic black sunnies, and a crossbody. Top it all off with a fresh pair of white sneakers. Tell me you don’t want to look this cool every day? Because I know I do!
Pool Outfit Ideas
If we are going to the pool this summer, we are looking fierce ok? This look would be great for vacation or just your average pool day. Wear this nude one-piece swimsuit and pair it with this fabulous cover-up skirt. You could also pair the skirt with a tank top for a less glam look. Add my favorite chic sunnies from Amazon, a raffia crossbody, and fun earrings to pull it all together.
You can also add this L*Space mini dress to your summer wardrobe. It’s so versatile so while you can wear it to the pool (with this neutral sun hat) you can also dress it up with heels for a night look!
The Beach Look
Heading to the beach this summer? Imagine the sound of crashing waves, warm golden sand beneath your toes, and the gentle kiss of the sun on your skin. A day at the beach calls for a stylish and functional ensemble that effortlessly combines fashion and comfort.
You’ll want to keep it casual and cool with this chic one-piece from EBERJAY. Pair it with denim shorts, and these comfortable slide sandals (that go with everything!), and top it off with sunnies and a wide straw fedora.

As a wedding guest, you want an outfit that strikes the perfect balance between elegance, sophistication, and a touch of modernity. Get ready to turn heads with a fashion look that exudes timeless charm while keeping up with the latest trends.
First is this black formal dress from Nookie is perfect for a formal or black-tie wedding. I personally wore this to my best friend’s wedding in Mexico and was comfortable all evening.
