Cotton Candy Carnival

This summer is definitely all about bright colors and feminine silhouettes. Which is probably why I’ve been wearing dresses so often. Slipping into one piece is so easy when you’re dealing with the summer heat too.

Tie-dye has made a strong comeback this season. I’m especially obsessed with pastel, cotton candy colored tie-dye!

Pure Love Potion

Every girl needs a baby doll dress as a summer staple. Pullover the ruffles or ruched and you have instant adorable.

If this dress is too sweet for your taste, pair it with combat boots and a leather jacket. Or opt for a black baby doll dress instead.

Pink Petal Park

Sleeveless shirts are flattering for all body types. The loose fit and straight shape is slimming and breezy.

I love this season’s high-low trend because us shorties can wear it. It’s also much more practical than maxis, if you’re the outdoorsy type, or ever have an urge to run through a field. I get that sometimes.

Happy skulls!

Charcoal Campsite

I love a slight harem pant because it slims and elongates your legs, while adding a little curve to your hips. Plus, they’re super comfy!

Mix basics and prints to spice up a simple outfit.

These wedges are so comfortable and easy to walk in. I always say I can run a mile in them!

Fairy Tale Forest

These lightweight tank dresses are my favorite for the summer. Easy to pullover, for those slow simmering days.

It’s flowy fabric and simple cut keeps you cool while squeezing in some tan time, as you wait for that friend who is always late.

Party Week Day 5: Champagne Shimmer

I am ending party week 2012 with a nice dinner outfit. This simply cut dress has some character with its sharp metallic shimmer. It’s an easy formal look, perfect for social events. This first impression shows that you are stylish without trying too hard.

I hope my Party Week series gave you some outfit ideas for this summer vacation. It has only just begun!

Party Week Day 4: Color Concert

Summer is not complete without attending a concert. My favorite musical venue is Nikon Theater at Jones Beach. The ocean view makes even the nosebleed seats incredibly enjoyable. The refreshing sea breeze keeps you cool as you dance and sing your voice away to your favorite artist.

Keep the outfit short and simple, while playing it up with accessories, so you can comfortably dance all night long! Loud colors and glitter will pop in dark venues, so you won’t be just anotherĀ fan girlĀ in the crowd ;)

Throw on a sleeveless denim jacket after the concert as you enter into the chilly night, with ears still ringing from the bass.
