These little tweaks will make a big impact in making your outfits look a little more current and less dated. When you mix and match these with your Summer Basics you can create some great outfits.


    Gladiator Sandals – are dated and can be such a hassle to get in and out of anyway. Although, they would be great for a Roman Holiday, you can instead try a two banded slide or a multi banded platform. Think how easily they slip on and off! They are sleek and go just as easy with slacks as they do with shorts or a dress.

    Flip – Flops – were these ever in?? Sure, flip flops are great for lazy beach days, but anywhere outside of the beach, lake or pool, try to opt for a dressier, more constructed shoe. Sometimes a simple tweak like a leather, grosgrain ribbon or plastic jelly can dress up a flip flop. The one exception this summer is the uber trendy high heeled thong sandal! It’s the look of a thong flip flop, but all the structure of a heels. Bonus for the calk pop!

    Prairie Tops – let the bohemian cotton poet shirts go for a bit. As tempting as they are and as seemingly endless summer as they appear. They’ve been replaced by a simpler & cheaper top! A Simple Tank. Rock a simple clean tank. A white tank will be the top you wear all summer. These tanks are modern, fresh and so versatile since they go with everything! Stock up on white, and get some colors, black and patterns while your adding to your collection, they are worth it!

    Sunglasses -ditch the small glasses, what do they protect anyway?? It’s all about BIG sunglasses this summer. Oversized sunnies are perfect for no-makeup days! They shade more of your face and protect your eyes from the strong summer sun.

    Super short shorts – this is one of those trends that I am finding a very difficult time letting go of. I feel like these are super flattering to my shorter stature. They make my legs look long!! However, I do really enjoy the longer bike shorts and some of the longer more tailored shorts.
