Shopping for clothes doesn’t really get top priority around my house, and when I do get around to shopping I need clothes that will feel good and look good. Or look “OK”. I mean, who am I? The Queen?
But the really important part is that they fit in the budget. No sense in wearing clothes that make me feel guilty, right? So based on what’s trending now, I did a little internet shopping for us so we could chat about what to wear this summer. Let’s start with a lovely summer look from Target:
Graphic tees are a trendy choice, but they can work flawlessly if you pair them with the right pieces. I love either of these shirts juxtaposed with the eyelet pencil skirt. I strongly suggest you wear some skirts in lieu of shorts this summer. Just try some on to find the appropriate length for you and your daily activities. My girls are four and eight and I wear skirts all the time… never stops me from fulfilling my mom requirements. Corals, reds, and oranges are having a moment right now — when you are unsure of how to wear a trendy color, footwear is always a good choice.
Last, but not least, we are shopping at Gap:
And now you’re all: “Are you seriously telling me to go the Gap for jeans, a t-shirt, and sneakers?” And I’m all like, “Um, yeah.”
Here’s the thing about the looks that are trending now: they are all very casual. Sporty is very in right now. Everyone is making a version of a slip-on sneaker. The jeans are a boyfriend fit and if you flip through any fashion mag with ‘celebrities’ you will see this fit is quite popular these days. Boxy tees have been edging their way back into the light and I for one am thankful to have them back! A loose fit is my friend… I’m showing this shirt in the lovely coral that’s so popular right now. This is a look you can wear with the kids or hanging out with your girlfriends.
Other colors that are working right now are navy and light blue and pairing them with the oranges and coral is always a good choice. Because of the popularity of the light blue hue, chambray is still a very on trend choice. Anything nautical or tribal is a good bet these days, too.
I’ve already shared skirts and tees are my go-to summer look — what about you? Do you have a go-to summer look?
(P.S. In case you are wondering… No. This is not a sponsored post and the these brands have no idea I’m writing about them. It’s just where I like to shop so I thought you might like it, too.)
