The Heat Is On : 2019 Summer Style Preview

“Summertime is always the best of what might be”

– Charles Bowden

It’s still just hitting me that May is here and summer is on its way! Don’t get me wrong – summer is my absolute favorite season but it feels like 2019 is flying by hella fast.

But hey I’m BEYOND excited for summer! I’m moving to a new apartment, giving me a great chance to redecorate (TJ Maxx and Target, where you at), and I’m planning to get outside as much as possible this summer. With my thoughts on summer, Ii can’t help but think of all the cute outfits I can put together. Summer style is my favorite, so here’s a preview of some of the outfits I’ll be rocking in the next few months!

Summer Happy Hour


So summer happy hours are my favorite thing ever! What’s better than sitting outside on a warm night in July with a drink in your hand? Roll up in a stylish jumpsuit like this one and some low block heels (you know, so you’re not tripping all over yourself). Add some simple jewelry and cute neutral crossbody and you’ll be all set for a fun evening out!

Vacay Ready


Summer vacations are THE best! Whether you’re headed somewhere tropical or just off to visit some family, show up in a super summery look like this one. I love this palm print pants because they’re super light for summer days and they look so cute paired with a crop top and flatform sandals. All eyes will be on you when you get to the airport, girl! Talk about killer summer style.

Lunch Date


Grabbing lunch with the girls or your SO? This super light and chic white striped dress will be the perfect addition to your summer style! I wore it all the time last summer and I plan to wear it a lot this summer too because it’s just too cute. Get into some print mixing with these snakeskin sandals (or not…you do you, girl). I like everything extra so I added this statement necklace and bracelets. And of course, you can’t go wrong with a black crossbody, right?

Summer Fun Day


Whether you’re headed to the zoo, amusement park or just running errands, this summer style will keep you comfy and cute! In case you didn’t know, I’m OBSESSED with off the shoulder tops so I had to include one in this post. Pair this striped one with some black shorts and silver accessories to keep it simple yet super chic. I’ve bee really loving the platform sneaks trend so why not add them to this adorable look for some extra comfort and style?

Are you all about that summer style too? Let me know which is your favorite look!

What to Pack for a Beach Getaway

“To escape and sit quietly on the beach – that’s my idea of paradise”

– Emilia Wickstead

Who is excited to spend days at the beach this summer? I only wish I lived closer to the beach but alas Colorado is way too far from the ocean. I’m hoping to plan one quick beach getaway this summer though.

Thinking about days at the beach is making me want summer right now! And if you’re planning your next beach getaway, I’ve got some cute pieces for you that are absolute musts.

(All these pieces below are linked on my Like to Know It. Chat with me if you have any questions!)



Of course you can’t go on a beach getaway without an adorable swimsuit packed! This leopard print bikini is perfect for the stylish girl who can’t get enough of this print. If you’re not a fan of leopard print, go find yourself a swimsuit that you’ll love showing off at the beach!


Sunscreen is another no brainer for a beach getaway. No one wants to go home all sun burned…no ma’am! I typically use SPF 30 since I don’t need tons of coverage but seriously…never EVER forget to put on sunscreen when you’re out in the sun all day.


When you’re walking back to the car or beach house, you definitely need some cute shoes. These sandals are perfect for walking through the sand and of course snakeskin is super trendy right now. Everyone will be super envious of your super cute sandals!

Cover up

I definitely need some new cover ups this summer but I do love this green romper as a cover up. It’s super cute, breathable and really easy to take off when you’re about to head into the water. You can always wear a dress, kimono or kaftan cover up if that’s more your style, but I’m obsessed with rompers so this is my fave!

I’d love to hear if you’re heading out on a beach getaway this summer. Leave a comment down below, ladies!
