Good evening friends and congratulations, you successfully made it through another Monday! Today on the blog we are continuing our conversation about summer style and how to create a cool and fresh wardrobe for every occasion. Last week’s look was focused on an ensemble for work, but this week we are talking about something a bit more fun, a get together with the girls! We all love a good chit chat with our girlfriends over a delicious lunch or shopping for a cute new outfit, and of course we want to look insanely stylish at the same time! I mean, selfies for social media, am I right?! Well, here is some inspiration for your perfect girls day attire! I have incorporated multiple spring/summer 2016 trends right here in one look. First let’s begin with this incredible denim dress by Boohoo from Asos, a staple for your summer wardrobe. Not only is frayed denim super in this year, but it also features a cold shoulder, which was seen all over the runways this season. And pockets! The dress has POCKETS! This blazer from Asos proves that you can still be pretty in pink without being overly girly. I think that a menswear inspired blazer in a feminine color is a great piece to have so you can throw it over a dress or t-shirt for a chilly night or when you’re indoors and that air conditioning is cranked just a bit too high. Next we move on to one of my favorite topics, shoes. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a massive shoe addiction, from sneakers to pumps and everything in between. For this specific occasion I chose a fun sneaker, because let’s be honest if we are going to shop til we drop we can’t have sore feet! Plus, sneakers are very on trend right now! Last but not least, don’t forget to accessorize! Find a staple bag, like this one from Forever 21, that is big enough to carry all of your summer essentials and will go with everything. To top it all off, throw on a pretty choker necklace and a couple of simple rings. I hope this post inspires you and makes you want to call up the girls to plan a fun day date!
