Do's & Don't's of Hats + Dresses for Summer

Hey Fashionista! 
I am doing the freaking 'happy dance' now that SUMMER is FINALLY HERE!
This year I'm much more excited about summer since
I moved back to my beach-y hometown a few months ago!
No longer do I have to put up with insufferable summer days cooling off inside 
watching my money fly away to the electric company.

Nope! I am now able to freely play in the cool sunshine once again 
and still know,...alive and with money in my pocket! {Double Win!}

You can imagine what all this positive turn of events is doing for my blogging. 
I get to experiment with all types of styles to wear for summer!
Oh, and let me tell ya....the choices and options are endless.
However, I kept going back to this 
effortless, stylish and comfortable combo 
that is perfect for hot summer days (and nights!!) 
Check out the 
"Do's & Don't's of Hats + Dresses for Summer" 
so you can try this style out too!

It's all about the dress, Fashionista!
The perfect type of dress that work with hats  are
empire waistline dresses.
((Like mine above!))
Flow-y are even better.  
Bonus points for hippy/boho elements
(like the crochet detailing at the bottom of my dress!)

Don't wear a prom dress or any other floor-length gown lol ;)
Any dress too structured won't work for this look either.
Keep it light, unstructured and flow-y, 
like the summer wind. ;)

Do wear sandals! 
Tennis shoes like, Converse (aka "Chucks") 
work well with this look too.
The point is to look casual by keeping this area simple.

Nothing fancy is needed. 
So shelve your wedges and super adorned flip flops for another look.
This style is best kept simple and a little tom boy-ish. ;)

Do wear boho-style jewelry:
Gold! (Duh.) 
Long necklaces.
And snazzy gold rings. 
Again, keep it simple, 
And light.
Sparkle is definitely a must.

Use super chunky jewelry. 
Always keep it dainty.

So, Fashionista! All you need to do is concentrate on these three areas in order to achieve a stylish and effortless summer look when wearing hats + dresses this season. You can do so much with this outfit combo and look super cute while doing them! As always, I love seeing how you style yourself up with these pointers. Feel free to email your final look to me at info(at)TheFashionistaCoach(dot)com - or post it on my Facebook page:! 
Wishing you a wonderful first week of Summer!!
See you next week!

4 Tops to {Always} Wear With A Skirt

Necklace: J. Crew | Peplum Top: Forever 21 | Skirt: LOFT | Shoes: Forever 21

1. A Pep{lum} Top

Why? Because not only does the fit flatter your figure, it also amps up the style factor of your overall look.  Save this combo for a fancier occasion, like a wedding, fancy dinner out on the town, or whenever you want to feel like a princess. ;)

Top: Gap | Necklace: My Online Shop | Belt: LOFT | Shoes: Payless

2. A Button-{Up} Top

Why? Because it looks casual, feels comfortable and creates a relaxed look for the office. 
Always remember to tuck this top in at the waistline to highlight your waistline! ;)

Necklace: Charlotte Russe | Cardigan + Tank: LOFT | Shoes: Payless

3. A Cardi{gan} Combo

Why? Because it gives a conservative/polished spin that wins over your future employer at a job interview. Or if say you're meeting your significant other's parents for the first time. ;) Again, make sure you tuck both pieces in at the waistline!

4. A Cami{sole}

Why? Because it's the EASIEST top to pair with a skirt such as this one. And it makes the best style statement for a first date, or dancing the night away with your girls! 

Make sure you add a pop of color with accessories like I did with a red floral pin, platforms and sweater!   

I {always} trust these 4 pieces to pump up the style when wearing a skirt. If you're using a full skirt like mine above, you'll always have four tops to change out your look at any time for most occasions.  However, if your skirt is a different style, keep in mind not all of these options will work. But try them anyway to see for yourself! Play with the look and you're bound to find a winning combination.  :) 

I hope you enjoyed learning about the 4 tops to {always} wear with a skirt!

 Until next time....have a beautiful week, Fashionista!!
