Sneakers in Summer

Does anyone else struggle with what COMFORTABLE shoes to wear in the Summer?! I have such a hard time because flat sandals or flats hurt my feet.. so I pretty much always have to wear a small heel for a little arch support.

But sometimes heels just aren’t practical, don’t fit the event, or don’t go with the outfit. In this case.. I was wearing a super casual ensemble, so I decided to try out some sneakers!

Personally, I LOVE a good white (VERY WHITE) sneaker (helloo dad shoe trend). Once they start getting discolored.. it just looks dirty. But you don’t have to spend hundreds for a good pair. I found these for $20 at KROGER. Yes, Kroger!

Let us know in the comments what type of shoes are your fave for a casual Summer day!

Turquoise for Summer

If you’re searching for your new Summer color.. here you go!! Turquoise is where it’s AT!

I absolutely love a good turquoise dress – or even a turquoise pump (any pop of color is my fave, let’s be real). Here I have a casual button up dress that’s perfect for the hot weather. Wearing a breezy dress is key for 100 degree heat, and a color that matches the ocean just feels right!

I personally love to browse the shelves at Tj Maxx or Ross and wait for a color to pop. I stop whenever something stands out! And that’s my number one tip for shopping at bargain places.. to wait until something pops out at you, THEN start looking. It can be overwhelming to browse so many aisles, and then you end up with nothing!

So next time you go shopping, look for some ocean turquoise.. I promise it’ll be your new power color!

Perfect for Summer

Living in Texas and suffering from crazy heat waves, I consider thin flowy dresses an essential part f my wardrobe. They are super easy to throw on, the air flows right through and you don’t die of a heat stroke. For my latest day stroll/brunch date/shopping day at Legacy West here in the DFW area (make sure to check it out if in town), I decided to throw on this beautiful, super comfy, and easy to dress up cotton button-up dress with a beautiful blue pattern. I paired it with my fave pale pink MK shoes, which are incredibly comfortable to walk around, and (SHOUTOUT) with my amazingly beautiful, hand chiseled leather tote purse by my very own company Erandi. If you love the purse as much as I do, go to www.erandifashion.com and order your own. Use the code PURSUIT to obtain 15% off + free shipping nationwide. Now tell me, what is your must have clothing item for the summer season?   

I think I just saw something delicious in that patio!

Beach Day Uniform

It’s officially past the 4th of July, which really makes it feel like Summer! And my favorite thing to do during Summer is to have a day by the pool or take a beach trip. Unfortunately the closest beach to us is about 5 hours away.. but a pool day is the next best thing! And I’ll be back in Mexico in less than 2 months.. wahoo!

I also recently was in LA and spent a couple days at Manhattan beach, Santa Monica, and Venice. THE. BEST.

The most obvious thing to wear to the beach? A swimsuit, duh.. but what to cover up with is always a struggle for me.

My go to is now either a lace see through dress (show off that swimsuit, girl), or an outfit like this – a loose tee with detail and some shorts. I love the eyelet line in this top. It’s as comfortable as a tee, but still can look cute to hop into happy hour or to lunch after. Some printed shorts also look super cute!

How to Wear Shift Dresses

The weather is HEATING UP like crazy here in TX. And happy first day of summer!

One of my favorite things to wear during the summer months is a good shift dress! It’s flowy, breezy, and normally a thin material perfect for the heat.

It’s easy to feel swallowed by a shift dress! So there are a few ways to balance it out to wear a comfy dress but still have your body flattered!

My top thing to do is make sure that your dress is a little shorter. Don’t get too crazy (unless you like too, then do you, girl!).. but showing some extra leg will lengthen your body out.

Next, wear the right shoes! Sneakers can make you look more dragged down. I love a danty sandal or a pump. Again, lengthen those legs!

If your dress is a little too big, add a belt or a long necklace! A necklace can add the illusion of more shape, and a belt will cinch your waist! Accessories are your friend.

How to Wear a Crop Top

I literally don’t think I’ve ever worn a crop top in my LIFE – until a couple weeks ago! I was traveling to socal and decided, why not?!

It’s so easy to feel so insecure that you don’t feel comfortable wearing whatever you want.. but in my opinion, work it! It felt amazing to completely ignore my insecurities and wear a crop top with leggings. YES, leggings!

Normally I have a strict cover-up-the-hoo-ha rule with leggings, but I was feeling risky for a few days there. And I don’t regret it at all. Here are my top tips for werking that crop top.

First of all, wear bottoms that are COMFORTABLE. A good denim skirt, pair of high-waisted jeans, pair of high-waisted shorts, or leggings that don’t scrunch up (you know what I mean, ladies) are ideal. You wan’t to be comfy with bottoms that fit you perfectly or even loosely.

Secondly, pick a top that’s the right length for you. In this case, I loved how it covered my belly button most of the time. If you hate your belly button, you can cover it up! if you want a ton of skin showing, then go for that! There’s no right or wrong here.

And finally… balance it out! I wore a long sleeved crop top to balance out the extra skin that was showing. I also opted for longer pants since my torso was out. Of course, wear whatever you’re comfortable with! But I love to have a balance that creates the appearance of a super proportional body!

Do you wear crop tops?!

Memorial Day Weekend Outfit Idea

Cheers to the long weekend! But of course – this holiday is more than a day off work.. Thinking of those military who need to be remembered for what they did for us!

And even though this holiday is super special and important, a lot of people do take the long weekend to go out of town, cookout, have a pool day, or RELAX.

As I’m writing this – I’m at the beach. So stay tuned for that!

If you have plans this weekend and need some inspiration, below are some photos of a go to outfit I always repeat on patriotic holidays! I love a good red white and blue without being too obvious and cheesy! (Of course, I’m wearing a red swimsuit now!)

A good way to incorporate the colors are with a red or blue scarf, denim, a headband, a purse or clutch, or even a bright colored heel!

Have a great weekend y’all!

XOXO, Kim
