Summer, Summer, Summertime! It is officially summer so it is time to pull out your bathing suit or swim suit, if you’re fancy. And, if you’re really fancy – it might be time for a new completely new suit. I know I got one. Two, three years ago I was so into the bikini or two piece suit but I just felt so uncomfortable. It had nothing to do with my size but more so just the idea of feeling like I am prancing around in my underwear. Laughable, I know. (lol)
For this look, I used the turquoise bathing suit as the main color, and paired it with the white or off-white knit mesh cover up. Even though it is a one-piece, the bathing suit is very chic with its slits and geometric shapes. You practically get to look good without too feeling compelled to watch ab fitness videos. The beach bag was just an added piece of color because, after all, in the summer you can get away with using more color than in the other seasons and I love green. You cannot forget the shades or sunglasses, and your sun hat — your at the beach!
Random Tip: Sun can be fun but it can also be dangerous so take care of yourself. To protect your beautiful eyes wear sunglasses that block UV rays. Wear up in sunscreen, preferably SPF 30 and up to protect your skin, and a hat to protect that head and hair from the heat and its elements.
Some Sun Protection: (Protect your skin and eyes)
This is a great daytime date look. Who says you can’t be comfortably casual and cute?
Though this look is trendy, it is pretty casual, too. After all, it contains a denim top or chambray shirt–if you’re fancy. It screams bold yet casual because although each article of clothing is a statement in and of itself like say the cheetah print loafers and the bright red-orange pants, you can arrange them in a way to diverts the eyes from focusing on all three at the same time. In the meantime, your date can focus on you (wink, wink).
[Sidebar]: The cheetah print is an ongoing trend, it been around when my grandmother was living, when my mother was my age, and it’s still here. It’s always cool when someone asks me “where’d you get that top?”, because I can say that it’s from my mom’s closet without feeling weird. Nowadays, the looks from the past are the looks for the future, and the present looks are just from yesterday’s tomorrow. 🙂
Random Tip: Tucking and untucking a shirt can turn a dressy look into a casual look in a flash. Going to the theatre – tuck! Going to the grocery shopping – untuck! It’s the wonders of tucking.
