Summer style and the 3 S's.

I have to admit that I am an autumn girl at heart.

I love traipsing around in leather boots, scarves, a colorful knit beanie, sipping on hot cocoa and curling up in a coffee shop. Now, don't get my wrong, I love the summer too - mostly warm summer nights that allow me to keep my shorts and tank on at 9pm, and feel the warm summer breeze on my sun-kissed, sunblocked skin! But to be honest, I'm always stuck on what to wear in the summer. In beautiful SoCal, we get this phenom called "June gloom" and it is enough to drive a fashionista bonkers. It's cardigan weather up until the clouds burn off, around 11am or 12pm, and I'm left needing an entire outfit change! So basically, layers are my BFF.

This summer, you can find me in 3 key things:
1) stripes
2) short shorts
3) flat sandals

I majorly love these summertime outfit ideas from Piperlime - fun combos of stripes + lace, nude strappy heels and flat leather sandals, too.

The Steve Madden 'Stecy' sandals are a MUST this summer--paired with short shorts or a breezy skirt, these will be a staple!

And single-strap sandals with a touch of metallic - I'm crushing on these by Vince, on sale price to boot!

Gap also has so fabulous and easy breezy summer apparel. I recently got my hands on their burnout step-hem tanks and tropical floral shorts, and they're my absolute favorite in my sea of clothes! Check out the full outfit, here.

So next time you find yourself stuck in a rut, wondering what the heck to wear on these hot summer days, think the 3 S's...stripes, shorts, sandals. Voila! Happy Summer.
