Cute Outfit Ideas of the Week – Fantastic Summer Outfits

Hi friends! It’s time for another Cute Outfit Ideas of the Week. In this edition we are featuring some super fantastic summer outfits.

I’m sad to say that next week, here in Austin, TX where I live, we are looking at temperatures over 100 degrees. HOT! I know the people of New York are dying of heat right now, as they’ve been suffering through 100 degree temps as well. I feel their pain. So when the weather gets unbearably hot, it’s time to break out the tanks and shorts!

Scarves Are Not Just for Winter – 5 Spring Scarves

Scarves are definitely not just for winter anymore. Spring scarves are quite a hot trend right now.  A trend I am all over! I love to kick up my outfit a notch with a scarf. It’s amazing how great a simple piece of fabric can make shorts and a t-shirt look.

In order to give you some inspiration, here are a few cute outfit ideas with scarves, as well as some spring scarves from one of my favorite companies, nobis.

This outfit idea featuring a spring scarf is a simple pair of white shorts, a gray t-shirt and a scarf with a fantastic pattern. If you go simple with the tee and shorts, go a little crazy with the scarf pattern.

ABC Family’s The Lying Game: Get the Look! Get the Wardrobe!

Get the Look!  ABC Family’s hit series ‘The Lying Game’ has opened it’s closets to all of us!  I’m into Mads fashion all the way, but there is loads to appreciate here.  Take a little lookie….

Hello sunshine!! Mads absolutely shines this episode in head-to-toe monochromatic yellow!! The perfect golden shade of this vibrant mustard color not only looks great against her skin but also looks great on her handbag and shoes!! Wearing the same color all over might seem a bit daunting to some of you but we assure it’s a very fresh and fashion-forward way to wear bright colors this spring and summer. Keep this look budget-friendly by looking for less expensive purse and shoes options since you most likely won’t be wearing bright shoes and handbags as much as neutral ones. Mustard, emerald green and fire orange are among some of our favorite must-have bright hues of the season!

There is something refreshing about a simple black dress that can be worn in various ways and Sutton nailed this look in her pretty LBD this episode!! Thin straps and a-line cuts are flattering on all body types, which makes this look universally wearable. The lightweight chiffon material is also great for traveling because it’s easy to pack and won’t wrinkle easily. We all want our legs to look like they go on for days, and one of the easiest ways to create that illusion is to wear nude color shoes similar to Sutton’s. Pile on fun accessories (like Sutton’s classic monogram “S”) to make this look your own, and you are good to go!

Whoever said bright colors should not be worn together should be fined by the Stylistas because Sutton has proven that the brighter the better!! We are obsessed with all the gorgeous candy-bright colors for spring and we are so happy to see Sutton setting us up for some perfect inspiration just in time for the season! This sort of color blocking works best with solid, bright hues in simple silhouettes similar to Sutton’s blouse and tailored cut-off shorts. The look is on-trend and sharp, both in the color department as well as the style department! Tucking in a button down blouse into a pair of well fitting shorts or pants guarantees that the look will not sloppy. You can color block bright hues that are in a similar color family or for those of you who are more daring, feel free to reach across the color spectrum and mix and match opposing colors! Shine on, Sutton!

Mads never ceases to amaze us with her fashion choices! The girl is always on-trend and always dressed to utter perfection from head to toe! The second we saw her, we loved the way the olive color complimented her skin tone. The combination of the knit and the color creates a really versatile, military-inspired look that is feminine and easy to wear. The studded details on the belt give the dress just a little bit of edge to keep it from looking too boring. A cotton dress like this one will be your saving grace during warm weather days when you want to just throw something on and leave the house fast. The addition of the long necklace was also genius!
