Summer is the season of musical festivals! It’s the perfect place to dress like a hippie and wear flower crowns. Here’s a simple outfit idea for these fun social gatherings. I went for the girl next door kind-of-look. Instead of wearing a white tee and jeans – I went with a sheer white tank top and distressed demin shorts. I dressed the simple look up with a few accessories. Overall, I think this a great easy look to replicate for hot summer concerts. It’s something you probably own in your own closet – making it super inexpensive.  I also just crafted the flower crown myself (watched a youtube tutorial) . Anyhow thanks for reading this post! Till next time. ~bBeInspireful - Hippie10BeInspireful - Hippie8

Crop Top + High Waisted Shorts

Correct me if I’m wrong…but the unofficial summer time uniform consists of crop tops & high waisted shorts. It’s really no surprise that demin shorts are the staples of summer fashion. The right pair can accentuate your legs and also make your butt look good as well (which is always a plus). The one I am wearing are actually from Abercrombie’s kid section (petite people problems). They are great because they hide my tummy. With more coverage around the waist, pairing it with a crop top seems like the natural fit. My colorful crop top has a floral print detail. Together this combo is perfect for the effortlessly cool gal. It’s a laid-back kind of outfit that beats the summer heat in style! ~bBeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts10BeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts12

Nature + Floral Skirt Outfit

Spending some time outdoors is essential for a perfect day in the summer for me. I love the warmer climate and dressing for it (one of the many reasons why I moved to the South). As you already know, I am a big fan of dresses but skirts are also up there as well. With so many variations in prints and styles – I own a handful of them. This A-line floral skirt is one of my favorite for the summer! It buttons up in the front and has pockets, so it’s cute and functional. I paired it with a plain yellow top so there wouldn’t be a clash in patterns. I think this girly outfit would be great for the first day of school! It’s not super dressy and it will keep you cool throughout the day. Anyhow, I hope this post helps spark some outfit ideas! ~bBeInspireful - Nature + Floral Outfit4

Summer Glow Outfit

Summer has a way of bringing out the natural glow in all of us. Maybe it’s the sun kiss tans or the carefree vibe that permeates the air but it is easily one of my favorite seasons.  The next few blog posts will be pictures from my summers in Ohio featuring some cute outfits (of course!). Cornfields, back roads, and sunshine are all quintessential to my small hometown and I can’t wait to share parts of it  with you guys!BeInspireful - Summer Glow 11BeInspireful - Summer Glow 10For the first pictures in the series, I am wearing a cream eyelet dress. It’s very simple but also charming and flattering. In the summer time you can easily look put-together by throwing on a basic dress. You don’t have to be fussy about matching bottoms, making it an easy go-to option.  Also, look for white and cream colors so you can show off your glowing tan! To finish off my outfit, I just wore some beige sandals and a layered necklace. Uncomplicated accessories put more emphasis on the dress and the individual wearing it!BeInspireful - Summer Glow 12

All in all, I love this effortless ensemble because it has a touch of femininity. It’s soft and sweet – perfect for any summer day. ~b

In this blog post I didn’t focus on a particular color. Instead, I just put together some of my favorite outfits that I have worn in the past. These girly outfits are a good reflection of my personal style. I am drawn to pastel shades and flowy fabric by default.

  • The first outfit I have worn to job interviews. In the business world, the color scheme tends to be dark and serious. That’s why dressing with a pop of color makes you stand out – which is always a good thing in an interview!
  • The second outfit I have worn to school. I usually carried a satchel purse instead of a book bag because most of my course work was all done on the computer. Jeans and a semi dressy top is also a great way to look cute but still casual.
  • My last outfit is something I have worn on family vacations. Lace shorts and a chiffon top are perfect combos for summer.

Welp, that’s all for this post! I hope you guys get some outfit inspiration. 🙂

Blush is the ultimate feminine color and personally one of my favorites. I love this color so much because of its understated elegance.  Naturally I find myself gravitating towards it during the spring because of its warm undertone. Here are some dressy and casual outfits featuring this lovely hue!

Outfit Ideas: Neon

Top – Kohl’s / Jeans – American Eagle / Shoes – Old Navy / Purse – Forever 21

In contrast to my last blog post, these three outfits are all about bright neon colors for the summer!  Wearing color is the perfect way to show off your fun personality. I think people often times hesitate towards neon because it can be overwhelming. However, I found the best way to approach this is by offsetting the bold with safe neutral colors. This creates balance within the composition and makes the outfit more wearable in everyday life!

Also, to be completely honest,  I do not wear neons a lot in my own life – but it is always fun to mix it up once in a while! 🙂
