Summertime Denim Trends to Rock NOW

summer denim







Living in Florida has been fantastic so far and so different all at the same time! This past week was even crazier than the first! This was my first week starting to teach the kids and I’ve been exhausted everyday. There are still things I haven’t unpacked and it’s driving me nuts. I hope your week was must less crazy than mine.

With that being said, I have to say that I love my job and the people I work with. Each week I’m proven how supportive other people can be.

One aspect that I haven’t quite gotten used to yet is the unbearable heat! It averages between 98-105 lately and although I’m one for the heat–the humidity is nuts around here! This is why I love finding add ons to outfits that aren’t going to provide a whole lot of heat. This denim vest is definitely a must have for bridging the gap between the summer and fall months. I love the All-American classic silhouette of the piece and how easily it can be worn over anything from a maxi dress to adding interest to this simple striped top/neon short combo. I wanted to make the color continue to pop so I added this fun neon statement necklace to pick up the yellow from my rolled up boyfriend shorts.

The new denim piece I’m obsessed with lately has got to be the chambray dress! This new twist on a classic silhouette is fresh and works on virtually every body type. I wanted to add a few pops of color that were simple and fun to make the dress stand out on its own. I got these flats with neon pink trim for $7 down here at Gap. Score! The statement necklace was my anniversary gift from Nate last year (he knows me so well!) and I added the cute little Nine West bag to keep things classic-looking and chic!
