Shorts + Kimono = Killer Combo
The Key Pieces:
Kimonos like this one will definitely be a summer staple for me. It’s sheer and lightweight but still serves as a cover-up for those not-so-sweltering summer nights. Plus, it’s printed! Thrown over a swimsuit, a breezy maxi or a pair of shorts, this look can do no wrong.
Shorts — one thing I can’t live without, regardless of the season. For summer, I’m opting for fun printed ones with a chic detailing like lace or a high-waist (hello, crop tops. These can be worn just as easily to a local cafe for brunch as a rooftop soiree.
While flats and stripy sandal heels have a special place in my summer wardrobe, wedges make any ensemble classic and warm-weather appropriate. The pop of color brings out the accent coral in the shorts and brighten the entire look altogether. And nothing beats a summer shoe you can walk for days in — be it festivals, farmer’s markets or day-trips spent exploring the city.
These gems add a subtle hint of color and have an interesting design — two things that make them so summer-appropes.
I will not be wearing a ton of makeup as it gets warmer, but I have to have a bright matte lip. This one stays on for days and since it’s matte, it won’t make my face look overly glossy and bright. No need to accent a glowy face (either purposefully or due to scorching hot temperatures) with an uber glossy bold lip.
A classy scent that’s fruity and fun but still so elegant. The notes of white flowers, orchid and peach blend together so perfectly, I feel like I’m on vacation at first spritz.
Gives you perfectly radiant, glowing skin while hiding imperfections? Plus, it has SPF? I’m sold.
