Favorite Summer Go-To Looks.

My go-to Summer Look at least for the last couple of Summers (as today's two outfits will tell you) is a Summer Dress (strapless, spaghetti-strapped, sleeveless, with cap or short sleeves) topped with a Denim Jacket. I switch it for my Denim Vest sometimes, but I still do the Denim Jacket more because it is more versatile. I live in a city where Summer mornings are mildly cool, the daytime until afternoon is usually very hot - even muggy - and evenings are quite chilly. So layering with a Full-Sleeve Denim Jacket on top of a Light Summer Dress is a perfect go-to-look! I usually wear Sandals, Flats and Wedges with this type of Summer Uniform. Lately, I have tried the big sneaker trend with Cute Bright or Patterned Sneakers and white Chucks. As far as jewelry I like to accessorize with a Colorful or Statement Necklace and a few Fun Colored Bracelets. Easy-Breezy Scarves, Hats like a Fedora and Sunglasses are optional - it depends on the weather. The second Outfit today, is quite patriotic too with the turquoise blue, red and white from the Floral Dress. What is a Summer go-to Look for you? I am linking mine with the ladies from Create 28. The first prompt of the challenge starting today is Favorite Summer Go-To Look.

  8. Beautiful dresses! The first one I like how you styled it with a hat, so flirty look! And the second has an awesome print, so summery and joyful! As summers are really hot in my place I can't do any layering really.

    1. Hahahahaa, it does doesn't it? My little half-broken camera wasn't cooperating much, especially in the second set of outfit photos so I was trying to stay positive and make the best of it. I am hoping to buy a new, much nicer camera very soon once I am in the States.

  14. Even though my featured "go-to" look was a maxi with a denim vest, my favorite summer look is really any dress with either a denim vest or jacket depending on the weather. We are TOTALLY on the same page!
