We’re in the dead of summer, the middle of quarantining and 2020 feels like it’s moving too slowly. (Or too quickly?) I’ll be the first to admit this year has been absolutely insane (and more than a little stressful), but that hasn’t stopped me from having a little fun with fashion! For me, summer style is an instant pick me up and makes me feel put together and gorgeous even if I’m just making lunch for the family in the backyard. Maybe I’ll make a grocery trip dressed to the 9s, or head to the beach in a bright and bold maxi dress, just because I can. Or need to. My closet hasn’t see the light of day in a while.
For warm-weather styling I always turn to some of my favorite brands and designers that have kept me polished and on-trend season after season—Free People, Ulla Johnson and Anine Bing—but there’s also nothing like finding something fun and new for an extra boost of fashion happiness! Check out some of my favorite pieces to style and wear this month and let me know which ones are your must-haves!
