Is there anything better than easy, care-free summer weekends? In the swamp that is summer in D.C., we are turning to light-weight, fun pieces that give off laid-back weekend vibes. We found trendy, cute, and affordable summer pieces at South Moon Under boutique that are keeping us fashionable, but cool during the dog days of summer.
For a breezy daytime look perfect for attending a festival, wine tasting, or brunch I love the ease and flirty bow detail of this hot pink maxi dress. The bright neon color was calling my name as soon as I walked into the store, and when I discovered the over sized bow detail I knew I’d be leaving with this number.
You can never wear too many stripes in the summer. I discovered this fun piece before a weekend on the water and love that it is the perfect blend of sexy and sporty. I paired it with boat shoes and a panama hat to complete the casual, nautical look.
Although sometimes unavoidable, I try my best not to schlep around a huge bag in the summer. This two tone nude clutch pairs well with a variety of outfits, was large enough to comfortably grip, and held all of my essentials. I’ve also been living in my gold metallic Sperry boat shoes, as bopping around in flip flops leaves me with no arch support and sore ankles.
Of course nothing completes an outfit quite like an awesome blowout. And frankly, in the summer, the last thing I want to be doing is standing in a bathroom blowing hot air onto my face. This is when we rely on the professionals at Logan14 Salon & Spa. I was in and out in an hour – record time for my mane! – with a blowout that left my hair smelling like fresh herbs, the iconic Aveda scent. Bonus, it lasted through a spin workout two days later!
Our summer fashion mantra is easy, light, and fun so these earrings were an instant win. Rachelle Celine’s take on a classic thin gold hoop is a chic addition to any outfit and has been my summer go-to earring for everything from work to weddings to brunch.
