Friday Favorites Remix :: Shorts and a Tee

Hi friends! I'm on THV 11 this morning (5:50 am! Eek!) to talk about affordable summer fashion - so I decided to dress up a plain tee and shorts by using only accessories.

Some of these might seem like a no-brainer, but adding color, pattern, and sparkle using your accessories is a great way to spice up what you're wearing this summer without making yourself overheat.

Scarves - My FAVORITE way to jazz up a summer outfit. I know a lot of people think scarves are only for summer, but stores are selling them in bright colors and fun patterns for summer! Just find one that is a light breezy fabric and wrap it around your neck, wear it as a vest, around your head, even as a belt. It doubles as a sarong on a beach vacation! And if you get too hot, you can always tie it to your bag.

Hats! It's SPF for your face and a fun way to make a statement. Fedoras, panama hats, or something big and floppy!

Fun shoes - Okay, I'm totally a shoe person, so this one is kind of a gimme. But step away from the flip flops and grab some flat leather sandals with a fun gold detail...or go all the way in a floral wedge. The attention will be all on your toes (so make sure your pedi is fresh).

Statement necklace! Le duh. Versona is a great place to pick up something bright and sparkly for summer and it's a great way to add interest and keep cool. I like doing something colorful for day and then switch to something bold and shiny for a night out on the town.

Other ways to add some fun to your outfits this summer :: vests, sleeveless button ups, anything crochet...even crop tops! When layering for summer, skip the sleeves and choose light fabrics so you don't pass out from heat exhaustion. I've given you a few examples of adding layers to your summer outfits below!
