Summer Fashion Staple Piece – Free People

The temps are heating up quickly, so I’ve partnered with Free People to bring you one of my go to staple pieces for summer fashion!

Free People has been one of my go to brands to fill my wardrobe for quite some time. I love the boho vibe of their clothes and the quality is great for the price! I’ve had most of my items for years and years.

One of my go to’s for summer is a maxi dress. They are breezy, easy and work for any occasion. I was drawn to this one because it’s basic enough to style several ways, but also had pretty ruffle and lace detailing to make it special.

You can dress this up with some wedges and dainty long layered necklaces, or pair it with a denim jacket and flats.

Maxi dresses are one of those summer fashion staples that you can keep in the closet and pull out whenever you don’t really know the dress code for an event. It can look dressy and casual at the same time. Not many other pieces can do that!

My friend Chelsea and I headed out to Shelby Park in East Nashville the other day and we snapped these pics. She was showing me the new nature center, and if you live in Nashville it’s a great place to go! They have “under the star” nights where there are tons of telescopes that you can go check out to see the stars. Would make a perfect and inexpensive date night idea! When Georgie is old enough I plan to take him out there to check it all out. For now, we can stroll around all the trails and he can watch all the puppies. He loves that!

I’m excited for summer and being outdoors more, and the easy lightweight summer fashion that comes with it.

Every closet needs a good little white dress!

If you have been following along with me for awhile, you know I love finding charitable fashion companies. I love when a business takes initiative to do more and in give back. Nena & Co is one of those amazing companies. Each purchase helps enable them to make a difference in the Guatemalan lives of artisans that make their one of a kind creations.
The give back by providing purified filtered water or a scholarship to help Guatemalan artisans receive a better education.Their “One of a Kind Collection consists of products constructed using curated vintage fabrics purchased from loyal Guatemalan market vendors.” How cool is that?! I love knowing that not only is this bag one of a kind, but an artisan took the time to craft it. The bag has already lived a life and has a story! Plus, it helps that artisan better their life in the process. Since this is such a special company, I couldn’t just keep all the goodness to myself. Head over to my Instagram (@beauandarrownashville) to enter to win one of these amazing bags!

Another amazing company is Nashelle Jewelry. All of their pieces are handmade in the USA using recycled materials. For each piece of jewelry purchased they donate a plate of food. I love the texture on these rings, and they would make a great gift!

Everyone knows about the little black dress, but for spring and summer I love to replace the classic with a little white dress. I love the natural look of this dress and the bell sleeve detailing. It does run pretty short, I would size up if you are on the taller side like me! I paired it with suede studded clogs. Clogs are having a moment and I am totally okay with that!

I use to do a lot of volunteer work, and since Georgie has been born I have been horrible about doing my share. It’s something I really miss in my life and want to work about getting back into. While I am in baby mode, I love shopping with companies that are giving back so I know I’m helping, even if it’s in the smallest little way. I would encourage you to go out and to do the same!
