Summer Trend Series: I’ll Have a Blue Summer

When you think of summer, it gives you only feelings of happiness, am I right?  The last thing you would feel is blue, when dreaming of sandy beaches, days by the pool, and cute new sandals and dresses.  But, this summer, blues are everywhere, making me feel anything but!  I love all shades of blue, from navy to baby, but I think soft, pale blue is perfect for lightweight dresses and tops that you can wear for all occasions.  As you know, denim is a great neutral that can be paired with practically any other color, even a different shade of denim.  And I feel the same is true for blue accessories, like earrings or bags.  I have a pair of blue earrings that I am loving right now, and have paired them with multiple different colors in my closet.

I want to share one look with you that is perfect for summer, that I scored online at TJ Maxx for less than $25!  I’ve incorporated a few of my favorite trends into this outfit, that I want to share with you:

I love that this dress incorporates different shades of blue, with the palest color being the most primary.

I didn’t want to be head-to-toe blue, so I broke it up with some pale pink earrings and shoes.

To keep with the theme, I paired this dress with a baby blue bag, that I think blended in just enough so that the bag wasn’t the focal point.

This cut of this top is super flattering, and the cold shoulder is another fave for summer!

If you missed my earlier post on blush, you can read it here.  I love blush accessories and here you can see that there aren’t many colors it doesn’t pair well with.  I could definitely wear this look for a summer wedding, and I have also thrown a navy sweater over the dress and worn it to work.  Try adding some summer blues to your wardrobe this season, I promise you won’t be disappointed!
