Guest Post: Style Fun for the Scorching Sun

Fun in the sun
School’s out, the beaches are packed, and everyone’s passports are eager to be stamped. Summer’s a wonderful time for rejuvenation, adventure, and of course, style. Here are a few summer trends that will give your gorgeous gams a time to revel in the spotlight and beat the heat.


seven cut-off jeansI love how iconic era styles cycle back into popular culture. It’s a fun time to see flapper-ed beauties, mod mavens, and hippie hotties venturing through the streets. The newest decade to hit the pavement is the 90s! Yes, overalls, hightops, and neons are back in full force. The grunge look has resurfaced in a multitude of manifestations – the most popular being cutoffs! From Levi’s to 7 Jeans, everyone’s embracing short shorts. If you’re a DIY kinda girl, a great solution is to find a pair of jeans you already own or purchase a wash and style you like from an op shop and slice and dice that denim yourself.

Spell and the Gypsy kimonoI love feeling ethereal and dramatic. Come on – I’m a modern woman, I live for the extraordinary. I always pined for a sheer cover-up that would be light enough to wear in the blazing heat and chic enough to look like more than a beach cover-up. Alas, the trending gods answered my fervent prayer and designed the sheer kimono! Long, short, patterned, or solid – they’re a perfect way to add some flavor to your summer getup. Don’t feel like having those bare arms exposed? Perhaps those cut-offs were a little too short… a kimono is the perfectly stylish way to stay classy, chic, and tasteful. This Spell and Gypsy Collective Kimono leaves much to be desired!

Hightop Heels

High top heelsDon’t you just love the dichotomy of this title? I sure do! I have to admit this fab fad threw me for a loop but they’re undeniably bold and bad-ass. For those of you who can’t quite get your head or foot into a pair of these puppies, you can opt for a traditional high-top sneaker. NastyGal is always one of my favourite online boutiques –think fun finds and a reasonable deal. Take a peek at their cutout hightop heels!

Get your suitcases and wide brim hats ready, gals! The sun won’t be the only thing blazing – dahling, YOU will be too!
