an apple a day...

I think summer is tough to dress for... How in the world are you supposed to look cute when it's 90 degrees and sunny with 100% humidity? In my opinion, we don't really have a choice but to wear shorts and a t-shirt or tank top almost every day with those sun dresses filtered in. Frankly, no matter what you wear you'll still be sweating. BUT, the key to turning your light summer outfit into a stylish one is all in the choice of accessories.

Step 1: Funk it up with some rad shoes. Your feet are rarely the first thing people look at so don't be afraid to do something a little crazy!

Step 2: A wide brimmed hat. It keeps the sun out of your eyes and instantly adds some style points. 

Step 3: A great bag. Have some fun here. Add in some cool hardware, texture and color. Whichever fits your style. 

Step 4: Jewelry... Stack on those rings and bracelets for an instant refresher to your outfit. 

Step 5: Have fun with it! Wear things because you love them and don't care what other people think!
