TOP: ZARA -- SHORTS: H&M -- EARRINGS: SUGARFIX -- SUNGLASSES: KAREN WALKER -- SHOES: MARC FISHER -- BRACELETS: DY & HERMES

 

IN CASE Y'ALL HAVEN'T NOTICED, ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING BLUSH IS A MAJOR TREND RIGHT NOW. I HAVE FALLEN HARD FOR THIS TREND, AND THESE BLUSH SILKY SHORTS ARE ON MY LIST OF FAVORITES. I LOVE THAT THEY'RE SILKY, SO THEY FEEL ALMOST LIKE PJ'S, THEY'RE A GOOD LENGTH, COME INAFEW COLORS, AND THEY ARE ONLY $13. (THE BLUSH COLOR ISN'T SHOWING ONLINE, BUT ARE STILL AVAILABLE IN STORES)

THE SHORTS HAVE AN ELASTIC WAIST, WHICH CAN BE PRETTY HIT OR MISS DEPENDING ON BODY TYPE. THE ELASTIC ON THESE SPECIFICALLY ISN'T TOO TIGHT, SO THEY CAN BE WORN A LITTLE HIGHER ON THE WAIST OR LOWER ON THE HIP DEPENDING ON HOW YOU LIKE YOUR SHORTS TO LOOK. I LIKE MINE A LITTLE HIGHER UP ON MY WAIST. I THINK THIS MAKES FOR A FLATTERING LOOK. THESE SHORTS CAN ALSO BE WORN WITH MANY DIFFERENT TOPS. I'VE PAIRED IT WITH A WHITE COLD SHOULDER TOP THAT FITS LOOSELY, AND WHEN TUCKED IN, ADDS TO THE SLIMMING HIGH-WAISTED LOOK.

WITH SO MANY TRENDS HAPPENING THIS SUMMER, IT IS EASY TO WANT EVERYTHING! I THOUGHT I WOULD ROUND-UP 10 OF MY SUMMER FAVORITES UNDER $40!

SO MANY GOODIES:

1. GLADIATOR SANDALS: I HAVE FOUND SO MANY GOOD OPTIONS FOR THIS TREND OVER THE PAST FEW MONTHS. THE GLADIATOR STYLE IS A GREAT SANDAL IN TERMS OF COMFORT, LOOK, AND VERSATILITY IN DESIGN.

2. V-NECK TEE: WHEN IT COMES TO A BASIC VNECK TEE, ZSUPPLY IS MY GO-TO BRAND. THE TEES ARE SO SOFT, WASH WELL, AND THEY CREATE SO MANY NEW STYLES ALL THE TIME.

3. COLD SHOULDER TOP: THIS TREND IS NEW AND I LOVE IT! IT ADDS JUST A SMALL DETAIL TO A TOP, AND LOOKS GREAT ON EVERYONE!

4. PEPLUM TOP: I AM A FAN OF PEPLUM, WHETHER IT'S A TOP, DRESS, OR SKIRT. FOR TOPS I NORMALLY GO FOR THE LOOSE FITTING STYLE OVER THE TIGHTER ONES, BECAUSE I FEEL THIS STYLE IS FLATTERING AND FEMININE, WHILE NOT HAVING TO WORRY ABOUT THE PEPLUM DETAIL HITTING IN THE WRONG PLACE.

5. JEAN SHORTS: THIS ONE IS EASY, YOU CAN NEVER HAVE TOO MANY PAIRS OF JEANS OR JEAN SHORTS!

6. NON-JEAN SHORTS: HAVING OTHER SHORT OPTIONS ASIDE FROM JEANS IS GREAT FOR SUMMER. SIMILAR TO THE PAIR FEATURED EARLIER IN THE POST, I LIKE TO HAVE A FEW PAIRS OF SHORTS FOR AN EASY AND COMFY SUMMER OUTFIT.

7. GRAPHIC TEE: I PROBABLY OWN WAYYYY TOO MANY GRAPHIC TEES, BUT MORE TIMES THEN NOT THEY'RE LOW IN PRICE, AND CAN BE WORN SO MANY WAYS!

8. SUMMER SCARF: I HAVE TALKED A LITTLE ABOUT MY LOVE FOR SUMMER SCARVES ON INSTAGRAM, BUT THEY REALLY ARE A FUN SUMMER ACCESSORY. THEY ARE THIN, SO THEY AREN'T TOO HOT, AND THERE ARE SO MANY CUTE OPTIONS OUT THERE.

9. RUNNING SHORTS: I HAVE GOTTEN INTO RUNNING OVER THE PAST 6 MONTHS OR SO, AND I TEND TO RUN AFTER WORK. IF YOU DON'T KNOW, TEXAS SUMMERS ARE HOT, SO SHORTS ARE ALMOST ALWAYS WHAT I'M IN IF I'M RUNNING. I'VE FOUND MANY BRANDS THAT I LIKE, AND SOME OF THEM ARE AT A GREAT PRICE POINT!

10. BATHING SUIT COVER-UP: IT'S SUMMER, AND YOU CAN NEVER GO WRONG WITH A CUTE BATHING SUIT COVER-UP!

 

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE SUMMER TRENDS? DO YOU HAVE OPTIONS AT A GOOD PRICE POINT? NO MATTER THE TREND, I HOPE THIS ROUND-UP ALLOWS YOU TO FIND AN ITEM OR A TREND THAT YOU LOVE TO GET YOU THROUGH THE REST OF SUMMER!

I HOPE Y'ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
