GOING FOR COMFORT: Take note from Kylie Jenner– tie your hair up in a sleek top knot. Not only does it look effortlessly chic, but your neck will be kept completely cool in the sweltering heat.

Summer Weekend Style

The best way to approach summer style? Easy separates that can take you from the beach to the city and everywhere in between. We love the look of cutoff shorts and a crop top paired with easy gold accessories, like our Laight Flatform. Cap it all off with a nod to Queen Bey and athleisure style and you’re all set for a fun weekend wherever you are!

Romper Guide 


With summer weather here it’s officially romper season! Here are our favorite ways to wear rompers for the season. 

Classic floral is a fun way to go since it adds pattern and color to your outfit to really stand out. Plus florals are the perfect summertime print. They even match well with boho accessories like our fringe bag for festivals!


Clean white is another statement making option. Wearing all white is a chic summer style that is super easy to achieve with a one-piece romper. Keep the accessories simple, or add a pop of color! 

Try balancing out the shorter length of a romper with a long cardi or duster. This is a very chic way to style your romper and is perfect for changing temperatures.  


Or, dress it up for a night out! A lacy or sequined romper is sexy enough for a night out on the town and pairs well with a heel like our Morgan Pump.

Closet Organization Tips & Tools

Sometime between the changing of seasons and massive shopping sprees, you closet organization can get a little out of hand without you even realizing it! If a shelf is overflowing with stuff, hangers sticking out of everywhere or a messy pile of clothing on the floor then you better keep reading!

First off all- go through all of those clothes. If you have not worn something in a year, chances are, you won’t need it tomorrow or even later in the future. Get rid of all of your old clothing to make room for the new (and current). Consider donating some of it! Stores such as Plato’s Closet even give you money for your old clothes!

 

Next, individual organizers. These will save your life and there are some for all different categories of merchandise. Shoe, jewelry, belt and scarf organizers… you name it!

Hanging Accessory Organizers

If you’re still finding your closet looking like a disaster, remember a few simple tips. Hangers should all face the same direction and be in the shape of a question mark (?). Also, fold things that you have a lot of such as sweaters, sweatshirts, T-shirts and other casual items. Even consider labeling bins for an excellent and efficient storage method!

 

Following these steps, will clean your closet in no time and keep it that way!

Showing Some Shoulder

Off the shoulder tops are such cute pieces for the summer. Especially when they are cropped, they allow for some breeze in the hot sun. The above outfit is such a cute way to be girly and casual. The shades of white and the denim work well together.

This is a dressier way to wear your off the shoulder top.

Another casual yet bohemian way to wear your top! All these styles are so cute, yet allow you to be cool during the summer.
