Now, I know I should be studying for finals like the rest of my peers, but my mind keeps wandering away to summer and it’s refreshing break. Its a time to go out and enjoy the long, sunshine filled days… meet with friends, enjoy sunset barbecues, sand between your toes, read a good book while swinging in a hammock… whatever your heart desires. I have a tendency to wear as little as possible in the warmer months, with my outfits usually consisting of a bikini and pareo (sarong) and not much else.
There’s a simplicity to summer. Summer hair looks best after a day at the beach, make up is natural or just not there at all and delicate sandals adorn tan feet. Colors are vibrant and full of life, a refreshing change after the sometimes bitter months of winter and spring. For days that I will be forced to wear actual clothes, I have a selection of beautiful summer dresses, perfect for a summer night or lunch.
This summer the look is influence by artistic deco styles in vibrant orange and pinks (as seen on Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer ’11 runway), spring time flowers, and feminine materials (like lace, eyelet, and chiffon).
