WIBN Wednesday - Summer Casual

A plain white t-shirt with a deep crew neck, flowy skirt or linen pants and a trendy (is it still trendy? did I miss the trend?) bib necklace... wouldn't it be nice to find yourself looking so elegant in a hurry?

Blues N Neutrals

Blue is an easy color to associate with.

Though like many, I went through a teenage black phase (which continued through college, actually), I eventually ventured into bright colors and blue became my favorite. I've since loved and worn this color in its many shades.

I love blue in its own palette from navy to teal to cerulean to peacock to baby blue. I love it in stripes, on shoes, as lapis lazuli in dangly earrings. It seems to pop up in all kinds of household items of mine, too: my water bottle, bed sheets, favorite wall print, kitchen spatulas. Even my cat's eyes are a sky blue! Maybe that's why I like him so much.

Pousse-Pousse, greatest cat ever.

From tranquil seas to cloudless skies, the memories of sweet summer days in my youth come floating back to me in a fog of blue. My favorite clothing items over the years mostly incorporate this hue. But the second most common color in my wardrobe? A creamy cocoa brown.

Beige and cream, brown and blue together... what could be prettier? Here are some of my picks in this palette:

WIBN Wednesday - June 23

Wouldn't it be nice to party at the pool in a flirty floral or chic colorblock dress?

Keep it easy and breezy (no covergirl endorsement here) in summer dresses for under $30. Pair with sunglasses, sandals and a smile. Oh, and of course the stunningly simple beach hair; spray with saltwater, scrunch and let air dry.

Get your funnoodles out because they are the only accessory you're going to need! =)
