My 5 Favorite Denim Rompers for Summer 2015

Rompers have a certain ease about them that is undeniable. You put one on and you already have a complete outfit, and unlike a dress, you have more range of motion ( you can pick something off the ground and not worry about giving an x-rated peep show). Add a bit of denim, the classic American staple, and you take the comfort level up a notch. With denim, you balance the girlishness of a romper with a utilitarian tomboy vibe. It is the perfect little mix! 

Splashes Of Color

It all started with the gorgeous inspiration image that I found on Pinterest of this bold orange eyeshadow look. I would probably wear a more toned down version of the makeup but it did catch my eye. The thing that stuck with me the most was the vivid hue and I wanted to replicate the vibrancy of the image into an outfit. So today's outfit of the day is dedicated to bright splashes of color and this Karen Millen dress was perfect for the occasion.  I paired it with an Oscar de la Renta clutch that was a beautiful cinnamon color and Forever 21 heels.

Bella Eve Maxi Dress

I can't resist the color orange, especially during August. It is so hot and the sun is shining so bright that it complements the color so well. It brings out all of it's best qualities. This vibrant look will get you noticed but will keep you cool throughout a heatwave. It is loose and flowy so any breeze can circulate freely. Add a few simple accessories and you can be comfortable and chic.

Lust Worthy Dress - Marchesa

This intricately designed dress by Marchesa is so pretty! Looking at it makes me swoon. I'm not usually a fan of white lace but this cocktail dress with embroidered pink roses has won me over. Totally lust-worthy!

Elegant French Country Bedroom

French country style creates the perfect balance of refined, old-world style and rustic, relaxed attitude. The color palette that is used is straight out of nature's palette, such as soothing neutrals, pale blues, and grey. The beauty of this decorating style is that it combines formal old-world craftsmanship with raw textures like wood and stone. French style should always feel and look effortless. Natural elements and the ease they convey are essential, and the perfect finishing touches are the accents. Decorative pieces featuring fleur de lis, sunflowers, and toile linens create a distinct authenticity. That is why this classic approach is loved throughout the world.

Bohemian Spirit

Today's set is inspired by this image of model Daria Werbowy. I loved her relaxed tousled waves and easygoing nature. So I set out to capture that vibe for today's outfit of the day. My inspiration led me right to the bohemian trend and its free-flowing sentiment. I found this beautifully relaxed and casual dress from Romwe and paired it with trendy sunglasses, sky-high wedges, and a studded boho chic clutch. This look is perfect for a true bohemian spirit.

Summer Lilly Mini Dress

Nothing screams summer like a Lemon Drop, and no I do not mean the candy or drink. I'm talking about the color of today's featured mini dress from Love & Lemons. It is the kind of dress made for showing off tanned shoulders and sexy legs. Just enough fabric to deal with the heat but done in a pretty feminine lace. I kept the look casual by adding a pair of metallic sunglasses, a colorful clutch, and cute & comfortable sandals.

The Sweet Spot

I love a dress that shows off a woman's back, especially one with a cute cutout design. It is the ultimate sweet spot. It is sexy, alluring and a bit daring. And dare I say a little naughty, so of course, I'm all for it. The Forever 21 dress that I am featuring today is perfect for summer and your wallet. Because the dress has a bold print I kept the accessories simple and chic. So go ahead and twirl and show them what you're working with!
