outfit2Summer Simplicity

In the summer you don’t want to spend too much time putting an outfit together. Slipping on a dress and walking out the door is easy, but it can be challenging to dress it up. This striped dress already has a great pattern to it. To keep it simple, pick a pop of color in your accessories such as these flats. The bright green is perfect for summer and gives your outfit some zest! It is perfect for the office and you can dress it down for the weekend with a pair of boat shoes. Dress by Talbots, $28; Shoes by Thari, $14; Boat shoes by Nautica, $14

Bright Bombshell

Wearing summer colors can be hard if you don’t know what to pair them with. A nice white pant gives your outfit some balance and flexibility to play with your top and accessories. This bright tunic is perfect for all the summer months. Pull the ensemble together with a purse and fun flat such as this bright shoe. Capri pant by Ann Taylor Loft, $9; Top by Tori Burch, $49; Purse, $15; Shoe by J.Crew, $14
