Summer Fashion Essentials ☼

Summer is finally here! Here are some fashion pieces that I think are essential for this summer.

Pins and Needles Lace Halter Bra- Urban Outfitters

I’m obsessed with bralettes and halter bras. They are much comfier than a normal bra and are cuter than a normal t-shirt bra. These kind of bras can be worn with anything, but I personally like to wear them with strappy shirts and dresses so the bra is more visible. This bralette from UO is personally one of my favorites and come in a bunch of colors.

Urban Renewal Recycled High/Low Denim Short- Urban Outfitters

I finally found the classic high-waisted Levi shorts! I’m so in love with vintage looking clothing and Urban Renewal is the perfect place to find renewed vintage clothing. These shorts are perfect for a music festival this summer or a day trip to the beach.

Jada Dress- Brandy Melville

I think this little dress is a must have for this summer. You could totally dress it up or down for any occasion. Wear it going anywhere and when you get chilly at night, throw a jean jacket on top or a thin cardigan.

Vans ‘Classic’ Sneaker- Nordstrom

These are my go-to shoes. I used to wear my white converse like all the time, but now I wear these. They’re super easy to put on and match with practically any outfit. Wear them if you’re just making a quick run to the store or walking around the city.

a.n.a Valerie Strappy Lace-Up Sandals- JCPenny

I’ve been trying to find a pair of shoes exactly like this but I could never find an affordable pair. The strapping of this shoe is perfect for a date night. They look good with either a dress or jeans.

Cat Eye Sunglasses- Forever21

I don’t have this exact pair, but I have something similar that I bought at Kohl’s, but the shape of the glasses is my absolute favorite. Different styles of sunglasses look better on certain people, so you just have to find the perfect pair. The cat eye glasses seem to be a trendy style so that’s why I chose these ones. Keep them in your purse or car so that you always have them and ready for use.

 

 

 

Favorite app of the month: VSCO

My favorite new app of February is the VSCOcam app. I like to think of this app as a mixture of Tumblr and Instagram. I’m really into photography now so I enjoy using this app. I’ve had it for a few weeks now and it’s absolutely amazing. The photos on the app for me are breath-taking and very inspirational. I like to go on here when I’m lacking inspiration and creativity. It’s also fun to play around with the filters and editing options. There are so many possibilities and it’s fun to transform a photo and give it more life. I definitely recommend getting this app and try new things with photography. If you do end up downloading the app, follow me @sierra-renee
