Color For Summer

Paintbox colors

Although half of 2018 is over, I want to share with you my favorite summer trend! This year seems to be all about paintbox colors and I am totally LOVING it. You normally won't find me sporting this much color, but it has been fun adding more vibrant and colorful pieces back into my wardrobe. I am still crazy for pom-poms and tassels this year, but the color pop and patterns have been just what I needed in my life! Mixing patterns is one of my favorite things to do. It makes the items in my closet more versatile resulting in a "brand new" outfit with things I already own. Now I just need to work on "shopping" my closet instead of buying MORE things (am I right?).

accessorizing

Y'all know I am an accessory girl, and for those of you that don't know me very well, you can normally find me sporting some sort of hat. This boater hat is my favorite right now. It is the perfect hat for style AND sun protection (really need it while living in AZ). The other great thing about it is that the material is flexible! It makes it super easy to pack in my suitcase when I'm traveling. Other hats I own tend to lose its form and get smooched and bent weird when traveling. Lastly, the black ribbon with a bow adds a nice feminine touch.

As I stated earlier, I am OBSESSED with pom-poms and tassels. I couldn't say no to this adorable LA Hearts straw circle purse with a burst of color from Pac Sun. I will be rocking this purse for the rest of summer! My favorite part about this is that I can remove the pom poms and swap it out with a keychain or scarf.

Gold hoop earrings are back! I finally picked up a few pairs of gold hoops. Normally I go for the statement tassel earrings, but with all this color, I thought I'd tone it down with these adorable gold hoops!

We CANNOT forget the Tassel Mules I am wearing. These were a happy accident. My friend bought them and they accidentally sent her the wrong size, which I, of course, bought off of her! These Miriam Mules from Rag & Co are seriously perfect for summer and are SOO comfy. They easily slip on, are woven and have this adorable boho/crochet look to them.

Patterns

And now onto the goods! These high rise floral print shorts from ZARA are SOOO stinkin' cute and SUPERRRR comfortable, especially when I want to be lookin' photoshoot fresh while riding my bike. ;) The bad news. I cannot find them in stock! Here is a similar pair of floral shorts that I LOVE.

I paired the shorts with this adorable "Wild Honey" striped graphic Tee from Forever 21. Side note, this shirt was made for me since so many call me "B" or "Bee".
