Simple, Sophisticated and Summery? No Big Heel!

I absolutely love getting dressed up in the summer, the clothes are more colorful and the shoes are so fun! Whether you are going out to lunch or dinner with friends or family, throwing together a cute outfit is always exciting. To spice up a simple summer day outfit and transition it to a more dressy look I added some chunky jewelry, my monogrammed necklace and of course wedges! Wedges are definitely one of my go-to pairs of shoes when I get dressed up in the summer because they are comfortable to walk in and offer quite the height boost- I am 5'6" so with these wedges I am 5'10", who doesn't love gaining a few inches when getting dressed up!? 

J. Crew paper bag skirts are perfect because they can be easily dressed up or dressed down. When it is so hot in the summer sometimes I just want to pull my hair up, adding a ribbon makes the simple style look a bit more put together. 

As I have said in posts before, pairing a statement necklace with a smaller and more dainty necklace adds a nice contrast to the look.
