SHOPPING GUIDE


Mid-July is here already, which means it's that time for summer sales. 
With stores stocked with more clearance and sale signs than ever, it's often difficult to make smart shopping decisions when being blinded by deeply discounted prices. 

So, whether you have been lusting over that perfect summer handbag since March or just want to boost your summer style before the season comes to an end - here are my tips on which pieces to take the plunge on.

Summer Sales Pieces To Invest In: 

1. Colored Chino Shorts - Bright colored chino shorts made a bold style statement this season. And with the classic cut and fun summer-y hue, these shorts are sure to become a closet staple. Still not convince? Pair them with a knit sweater for fall and keep them around for warm seasons to come

2. Stripes Tee - Let's face it, stripes are everywhere. This timeless trend never seems to fade, making now the perfect time to invest in a quality lightweight tee. Pair it with your favorite shorts, denim or high-waist skirt for the office. 

3. Delicate Jewelry - Oversized gemstones and bold baubles are back in style {in the best possible way} this season. Although these fun pieces add extra shine to any outfit, a delicate piece will never go out of style. This thin knot ring is sure to become an everyday outfit essential.

4. Woven Clutch - Woven accessories are on-point this season. At first, I took this trend as one that would eventually fade. However, when my bestfriend showed off her woven clutch to me and boasted that it was a vintage piece from her grandmother, I realized that this is a fit for any stylish wardrobe - for years to come.

5. Metallic Sandals - If you haven't picked up a pair of metallic sandals this season - stop reading this immediately and start your hunt for the perfect pair! Metallic sandals {I prefer gold} can be dressed up or down and are a nice alternative to wedges.

7. Bright Bandeau Suit - A good quality swim suit will be more than worth it's money if you enjoy spending time in the sun & water in the summer. Now is the time to pick up a suit that you wouldn't have purchased full-price, but will guarantee to hold it's structure for seasons to come. Look for a style and color, like red, that will never lose its appeal.

8. Multi-colored Bangles - It's all about the arm party right now. And why not add a little color to your wrist? Pick up a pack of fun multi-colored bangles in neutral hues that can be worn all season

Happy {Summer Sales} Shopping!
