Re-Use Accessories Like Reese!

Girls, I know it’s summer, but don’t forget about accessories in your rush to lighten your wardrobe!  A trend I’ve been noticing is pairing your favorite summer frock or dress with more utilitarian accessories!

I love this Michael Stars dress because of the bright color!  It’s so bold and will look great with browns, army greens and similar muted accessories!

ALERT!-*INVESTMENT PIECE*

This cargo jacket from Victoria Secret can be worn as a jacket, vest, cropped jacket, or cropped vest, with that many options you could keep this vest for years!

Belting a dress with a waist belt like this one from Asos instantly takes it from beach to chic!  It becomes a dress you can wear to a club or dinner, and that is getting your money’s worth out of a favorite dress!

Espadrilles could be termed, “the summer high heel”  because they are pretty much sandals with awesome height!  I love the simplicity of these Miu Miu Espadrilles!

EDITOR’S NOTE: Don’t feel compelled to wear all these accessories at a time, try it out and see what works for you! Sometimes one additional piece is plenty especially in summer!

Who Wears Short Shorts? Katy Perry Wears Short Shorts!

Retro-chic, is what I’m going to aim for this summer and you should too!  Think classy girls from those forties films!  If your having trouble picturing the look, think Katy Perry!

I love a nice high-waisted pair of shorts, like these from Marc Jacobs.  They really accentuate your waist and give your body a great shape.  $550

I love plaid shirts, for me it’s one of my go-to pieces!  Also by Marc Jacobs, this shirt is a great standard plaid top.  It has bright colors and a loose fit which equals great summer comfort!  $168

Any pair of platform pumps will complete this outfit, but I really like the neutral gray tone of these Sergio Rossi peep-toe pumps.  $477
