Summer Staples

Every season has its trends. Pants are either shorter or longer, high or low waisted, cropped tops or tunics—everything goes in and out of season. While I do love to play around with what’s new and trendy, most of my wardrobe is made up of my comfort zone staples. For summer (can you believe it’s already June!?!), I have a basic formula that I constantly pull out when I want to look relaxed and casual, but still feel cool at the same time. I always revert back to some frayed jean shorts, a muscle tank, heeled sandals, and a fun bag. The jean shorts are “classic summer” to me (and I still can’t get enough of distressed denim) and muscle tanks are a favorite because if you are a girl that has to wear a bra (and hate strapless options), it can be pretty difficult to find tops with all the summer spaghetti straps around. Muscle tanks totally solve the problem. Sandals with a few inches of heel give a more put-together vibe to an otherwise casual outfit, and a fun/colorful bag adds just that to the look—fun!                                              Top, Shorts, Shoes, and Bag c/o LuLu’s

How fun is the fringe detail on those shoes?? I absolutely adore novelty bags so I can’t wait to take this lemon guy on lots of outings this summer.  What’s your list of summer staples? Sundresses? Rompers? So much to choose from!

        Hi Gabriela!
        I’m not a professional, so I don’t have any weight loss tips I can officially give you, but I know that I feel my best when I’m eating well (lots of fruits and veggies and very little sugar and carbs) and get out to exercise a few times a week. Your teens are a tough time for lots of reasons and your body is changing all the time, so I would eat as well as you can, get out to do physical activities, and love yourself for who you are and embrace what makes you unique. Thanks for reading!!

        Laura 🙂
