Like most people, I love summer. I love the sun, the blooming plants, the late sunsets, the the livable tempuratures (can you tell we're based in Canada? haha). I even love dressing for summer, despite the fact that fall fashion is preferred by many. While I do appreciate the opportunity to layer, I love the simplicity and "freshness" of summer looks. Here are 3 of my easy-breazy HE faves:
One of the reasons I love summer dressing is how practical dresses become. It's a full outfit in one garment, meaning less time spent in the morning in a state of turmoil over what pieces to put together. Plus I love having my legs free. The only thing easier than a dress, is a t-shirt dress. So casual yet so girlishly cute (but not just for girls! Ethan wears all the time over jeans and he looks SO great). I just pair with sneakers and I'm out the door! It also works well as swim cover-up since the shoulders are covered, rather than a sleeveless dress that might compete with the straps of your swimsuit (every tried to layer a strappy top over a racerback bra?). The mismatching sleeve colours are the highlight of this piece, such fun, quirky detail that gives a simple garment some character.
SHOP THE PASTEL COLOUR BLOCK T SHIRT DRESS
the dream-fit graphic tee
The t-shirt is the most essential of the essential. And of course it's not summer without TONS of crop tops. What I love about this tee is that the crop is a little left a little longer than the standard crop, which perfectly pairs with the slightly loose fit. It reminds me of a great childrens tee I found at a vintage store once, which is why these longer cropped tees are often called "baby tees". Perfect for a casual look with over jeans (I'm loving cropped flares atm) or shorts!
SHOP THE WASTELAND CROP LOGO TEE
We have gotten an overwhelming response to our bikinis this summer. Hayley really focused on designing a style that would be flattering on all body types. The top is unpadded for a natural look, yet are supportive for the bustiest of girls! And the high-waisted breif is oh so comfortable. This High Times print is my favourite, I love the colours and how beautiful (and subtle) the leaf print itself is.
