1. Cute Sundress

When I think of summer, the first thing that comes to mind is a cute print sundress. It’s just such a fresh and feminine look when it hot out. This pretty linen one has a French toile-inspired pattern that makes it graceful and charming. Dress it up with a pair of sexy black sandals, an elegant bag, and some sparkly earrings, and you have a chic summer sundress look.

2.  Shorts + Striped Top

You can’t go wrong with anything striped since stripes lend themself to a nautical summer vibe.  I love this flowy peasant style with the tassel tie neckline.  Pair this top with a pair of crisp white shorts, a straw bag, beaded earrings, and some earthy sandals, and you have a darling summer look.

3.  Linen Top and White Jeans

Linen is always a summer favorite which is why a  cute top like this is an automatic sellout. The laid-back wrap style and stand-out yellow color make it look cheery but relaxed. White cropped pants are the perfect backdrop to this sunny top. All you need are some white sandals, a white bag, and some pretty earrings and you are ready for a beautiful day.





Summer - Cargo Pants

  1. These are so pretty!! I live in a very hot climate. I would love to see casual summer options for over 40 that feature sleeveless or short sleeve options and all skirts dresses or shorts. Jeans, trousers, long sleeves, 3/4 sleeves, jackets, and even maxi dresses can be way too hot. Ideas?
