Summer seems to go by so fast, doesn’t it? Between vacations planned and weekends away, it flies by. That’s why we always try to make the most of it by planning a wide variety of summer trips that make the most of the warm weather, time with family and friends, and beauty of the season.
This also means that weekends fill up, fast! We look at our calendars and the weekends are all booked up with trips to the beach, new cities we want to explore, and events and concerts at outdoor venues.
It certainly isn’t a problem that the summer is booked up with fun! It also means that our time is limited (no more getting chores done on the weekend…), so we need to prioritize.
The last thing that needs to take up headspace is thinking about what to wear in the morning, and in the case of weekend trips, what to pack. Who else out there always packs way too much because you can’t figure out what you’ll want to wear? Believe us, our hands are up!
So let’s jumpstart your summer with a bit of outfit inspiration. These simple beauties translate between the boardwalk and the beach, summer days and cooler nights. The shoes attached are guaranteed to keep you comfortable all day long and into the wee hours of the evening, and translate easily between daytime and nighttime wear.
First, weekend casual. There’s nothing simpler and cuter than throwing on a pair of your favorite jeans, a cute neutral top, and a few simple yet colorful accessories to make an adorable, trendy outfit perfect for exploring a new city. We love this black-and-white striped blouse paired with a bright yellow daypack and matching belt. The Violet flats bring the whole outfit together; the neutral lavender shoe matches perfectly, while the fashion-forward perforated holes allow your feet to breathe in warmer weather. Plus, the sole is comfy – perfect for walking cobblestone streets, window shopping, or heading to brunch.
Next, the beachside traveler. This fashion-forward number pairs bright, fun shorts with a simple white top for ultimate summer style. The bow on the shorts cinches your waist to make you look leaner and longer. Pair it with cute accessories like retro sunglasses and a sun hat to keep your skin fresh, glowing, and not burnt from the sun. The red Allegro flats pull the outfit together by coordinating with the shorts and offering yet another colorful summer pop to your style. These flats are perfect for walking along the boardwalk and keeping your feet happy all day long. Head to the beach this summer and stay cool and comfortable in this silhouette.
And lastly, the nighttime trendsetter. It’s always fun to get a little more dressed up during summer nights, whether you’re heading out to dinner on date night or out dancing on the town with your girlfriends. This adorable green dress offers trendy cutouts that aren’t too revealing for the perfect nighttime look. Top with a black leather jacket to stay warm during chillier summer nights while adding a bit of edge and flair to your look. The dangling earrings really pull the outfit together with a bit of gold pop. And lastly – those shoes. The Zest slip-ons add even more edge to the leather jacket, while the laser cut ventilation in these flats keep you feet happy and cool as you dance the night away.
With a little bit of outfit inspiration, summer packing – and simply getting dressed in the morning – gets a whole lot less stressful and leaves you time for the things you love to do. So enjoy your summer weekends this year in style! You deserve it.
