Styling Bright + Casual Summer Tops
One of my favorite styles to incorporate into summer wardrobe, are bright colored tops! If I’m being honest though, I would wear bright colors like this one all year around if it was socially acceptable. There’s just something about wearing a bright color that makes me feel so happy!
This past weekend was a fun one. Nathan’s parents came and we spent the weekend outdoors enjoying the weather! I was able to have my first afternoon tea experience at The Drake Hotel, and I absolutely loved it! Being a girl who grew up on having imaginary tea parties with her barbie dolls…it was a dream come true for me. The Drake is g o r g e o u s, so if you ever have the chance to go, you totally should! My only complaint is that I wish there were more finger sandwiches. 🙂
We also had dinner at the Angry Crab, which if you’re in the Chicago area + love seafood, hopefully you’ve been there already! We got our hands messy eating seafood out of a bag with no silverware and no plates. It was insanely messy, but so much fun! + pretty tasty. Lots of shopping was also in the schedule and we capped off our weekend with a trip to The Comedy Bar. I laughed so hard! If you ever get the change to check it out, do it! Totally worth it. Lastly, I promise I’m going to start getting better at documenting the things I do on the weekends. As I’m sure you all enjoy reading about it, pictures are so much better!
Enough about my weekend. Bright colors are a great way to amp up your summer wardrobe, but sometimes they can be difficult to style. You want to look like summer but not scream neon traffic cone, I get you. 😉 In order to balance out my bright colors I like to pair them with ripped denim or white. White in the summer always balances out a bright color, and ripped denim can make it a little less distracting. If bright colors really really scare you, pair them with a denim jacket or a vest! You’ll still get that pop of color without feeling uncomfortable. I found this top a while ago at Nordstrom Rack, and of course with my luck it’s sold out online. These bow slides, however…. I can’t get enough! They are only $25 and are fully restocked in every color right now! I’ve been wanting the pink pair for forever, so I’m so glad they are back in stock! I obviously have to have them.
Since this pink top is sold out, I’ve rounded up a ton of my favorite bright color summer tops to hopefully make up for it. I always feel really bad when I do a photoshoot wearing something that is no longer available. #Bloggerguilt
