Style Saturday | The Summer Fashion Haul

When Summer rolls around my taste in clothing and my overall style take a bit of a 180. While in the winter I love dark colours, neutrals, leathers and heavy knits, in the summer I tend to lean more towards a bohemian vibe. Temperatures can reach an uncomfortable high and it can be ridiculously humid so I tend to live by the less is more mentality, while trying to remain feminine. I am a girly girl at heart and I prefer to wear dresses and skirts to pants or shorts. 

So starting with dresses, I bought two maxi dresses both from Forever 21, one is a simple striped cotton and the other is a pretty floral with lace trim and a slit. I also bought two slip dresses, which is one of my favourite silhouettes for summer, they are easy to throw on and you still look put together. The first is from Sirens and has a very bold print while the second is from Forever 21 and is a much more delicate floral. I absolutely love the caged back on both dresses. Lastly, I fell in love with this black lace fit and flare dress from Suzy Shier. It is incredibly flattering and the neckline is perfect for my smaller chest, I can’t wait to wear this to an upcoming event!

Now on to tops, I was looking for pieces that were easy to throw on with a maxi skirt or to dress up for an event with black pants and heels. I picked up two floral camisoles, a black top with a bow accent, and a white shirt with a sheer patterned front and rolled sleeves. I also bought two crop tops, a simple royal blue and an adorable lace trimmed camisole. The last thing I bought was a black and white printed kimono, something that is completely different for me. I’m not sure how I am going to wear this but I think it could be lovely. 

So that is what I have purchased for Summer but I’m sure I will be buying even more. Everything is just so cute right now and I can’t stop shopping. How do you dress during the summer? Do you like to keep it easy and feminine like me or do you prefer shorts and tshirts? Have you bought anything recently?

    The lace trimmed camisole is gorgeous, where is it from? And my style also takes a U-turn between the seasons, I turn into such a girly girl during the warm months too x

    I'm not a dress girl but I bought a coral/hot pink dress this morning. They are great in the summer, but I never think of wearing them! I love the little black one and your mannequin is great too!
