Ok ya’ll I have found the PERFECT everyday dress. It’s the softest material and so easy to throw on and go. I paired it with simple slide sandals (under $30 and come in several colors.) I wanted something I could chase babies in and be comfy in this hot weather. There is also a shorter version that’s less expensive as well. You can find that one HERE.
Back in my styling days I had go to items that I would suggest everyone have. Whenever you have those “I have absolutely nothing to wear” moments you can convert back to those few pieces and style them different ways.
You could also style this dress:
* With a bandana scarf and sneakers.
* Wedges and big statement earrings.
* Lace up sandals and a statement necklace.
* Tie up the bottom of the dress with a top knot hair style.
When it comes to a summer outfit I try to keep staple pieces in my closet and this is one of them. (As well as the slides.)
Here are some other under $100 summer outfit staples:
I don’t believe there is such a thing as too much denim. I like to style my denim skirts with a graphic tee and a denim jacket. It’ s the kind of look that is so easy to put together and throw on, and can easily transition from day to night. Throw on some stacked bracelets and you are good to go!
I’m so impressed with how soft this denim trucker jacket is. It feels like it’s an old favorite you have washed a ton of times. The lighter wash makes it easy to pair with a wide range of colors, and is the perfect staple piece to add to your wardrobe.
When looking for a graphic tee, finding one with a little more character is key. This desert tank really spoke to my wanderlust spirit, and the choker neckline and v-neck make for a more modern take on the trend.
Booties are easy to run around in, and the studded detailing and embellished buckles on this pair adds interest to any outfit.
If you are looking for one must have piece for the spring/summer season, this two tone denim mini skirt is it! Denim skirts are versatile and you can pair it with a sweater or sweatshirt this fall when the temps cool down.
As a new mom, blogger, and frequent traveler I search for pieces that can transition from any type of event that may come my way. I wore this to coffee with a friend, then ran some errands with my baby, and grabbed some dinner with my family that night. Denim also packs extremely well, so it’s great to bring along on your summer travels.
I had so much fun partnering with Express to showcase how I style festival fashion! All thoughts and reviews are my own!
Music festivals have developed their own fashion aesthetic and I’ve fully embraced it! We all know it’s just as much about what you wear as who you go listen to these days, right?! It’s one big runway, but focused around livable fashion. I can jump aboard that train!
I tend to lean towards versatile, low maintenance pieces that can take you from the afternoon shows all the way until those late nights. Looking for pieces that travel well is also key!
A good plaid shirt is an absolute must. It looks cute tied around your waist during the day, and you can wear it unbuttoned and slightly tucked in when the temperatures drop at night. Wearing one side tucked in and one out, gives the look a little extra interest. I like to pair mine with a accessories and a bodysuit. Both pieces can be worn again with other staple items and are light-weight and easy for travel. You could also wear the plaid shirt buttoned up and tucked in, for a more conservative look. This would also really showcase the belt!
Once you have your basics, you can add some fun accessories to round out the look. I’m obsessed with this western belt that really takes the outfit up a notch! Finish that off with some fun booties and you are good to rock all day! Most festivals are in fields, and let’s be real, fields are dirty. Opt for booties over sandals to keep those feet clean! I’m a sucker for anything embellished, and the buckles mixed with the studs gives these the perfect edge to “rock up” the look.
This look is my go to during the summer months, whether I’m at a festival or just running errands around town. It’s so easy to pull off, and the pieces can be worn so many different ways. We are always traveling, so these pieces are great because they do not wrinkle easily.
The weather in Nashville has been beautiful the last couple days! I can see the light at the end of the winter tunnel. I used it as the opportunity to rock this summer outfit for doing a little shopping around town.
