Street fairs and festivals are so much fun in the summer. Not only can you shop for arts & crafts, clothing, organic goodies etc. but you can people watch all at the same time. However walking around in hot weather can be brutal. Cool clothing made from lighter weight cotton or linen are the most comfortable options. Longer length shorts, midi- length skirts, calf length pants with coordinating tops are all options. Light weight loose dresses with sleeves are another way to go such as caftans or shirtwaist style dresses. Some longer beach cover ups and casual maxi dresses have sleeves and are stylish in hot weather. Style a tank top with a sheer cotton shirt and wear with pants, shorts or a skirt or throw a thin shirt over a sun dress. Wear a wide brimmed hat to protect from the sun.
Is there a perfect summer handbag? I am planning to go shopping for a new bag.
A perfect summer handbag is a raffia bag. They are so chic in the summer. In a solid color neutral a raffia handbag can be worn with many different outfits and for many different occasions. Raffia bags come in a number of styles, sizes and colors. Solid color neutral bags can be a better investment since they can be worn with more outfits. Embellished and colored bags in general are more casual looking and / or limit what you can wear with them. Darker color bags, such as black or chocolate, look good with dark color outfits and look a little more dressy than light color bags. As far as styles go a handbag that you can wear over the shoulder, with handles and /or clutch are the most versatile. Choose a size bag that is in proportion to your size. Tip: smaller size bags look best in the evening.
Braiding Summer Hair Trend
Braiding is always a classic summer hair trend. Braids have come a long way from the single braid and pigtail braids of childhood. Now there are halos of soft braids crowning the head, and the recently popular “fishtail braids” known to our friends across the pond as “plaits”. More edgy braiding styles are cornrows placed on the side of the head to create a faux mohawk effect. With so many choices it is easy to become inspired to create a look that is truly unique to you.
