Cool and Comfortable For Summer

Let’s face it, we don’t always need to be runway ready…especially when it comes to summer. Summer is the time we let our hair down and slow down the pace just a little. Now don’t get me wrong, there’s a big difference between stylish and runway ready. I’m never too busy to put my best foot forward, even with my everyday style.

You really don’t have to try that hard to find a stylish look that’s also comfortable and easy to wear.

There are four essential staple pieces for summer that are must-haves for my wardrobe! Here I’m wearing one of my favorite pieces for summer…jean skimmer shorts. I like these shorts because they provide good coverage, but still accent a slim leg line.

Don’t you just love the lush outdoor scene that I chose for these pictures?!? Ok, close your eyes and picture a quaint little park with green grass and a trickling fountain…do you see it? Well, that was the site of my FIRST set of pictures until I managed to delete the whole photo file before actually uploading the pictures onto my computer. These pictures would be the second round taken in the hall of my husband’s office. Yep, that’s how I roll sometimes!

4 Essential Staple Pieces For Summer


Besides skimmers, denim boyfriend jeans, white jeans and a pair of khaki shorts are functional staple pieces for any woman to utilize in her everyday style for summer . These four items can be mixed and matched with endless possibilities. You can also dress them up or down depending on the occasion.

Here, I paired my skimmers with a white eyelet blouse (Loft), turquoise belt, Lucky Brand espadrille sandals and a fantastic straw bag I just picked up on Boracay Island, Philippines.
