I gravitate toward certain colors when I shop. It used to be gray when I was younger. Can you believe half my closet was gray until I made a conscious effort to inject more color into my wardrobe? Now I’m all about vivid colors and prints. Aside from my first love of yellow, I can never go wrong with blush pink — in this case a pink floral dress. So feminine and romantic, this style easily takes you from daytime to date time.
I took my pink floral dress out for a stroll around one of my favorite summer spots in the city — Kaldi’s Coffee outside Citygarden St. Louis. It’s a great place to grab a latte, get some work done, and enjoy the patio amongst the sunshine and people watching.
Pretty pink floral bouquets, a ribbon tie-waist, and cap flutter sleeves add extra feminine touches to this look. Accessorize with touches of pink and gold for a monochrome look.
Top Picks for a Summery Pink Floral Dress
Here are some of my favorite options for a pink floral dress to style this summer starting at only $25. They’re so flattering that you can never have too many in your wardrobe. If florals aren’t your jam, try these gorgeous polka dot dresses instead.
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 is finally here! This annual sale is my second favorite event in July (after fireworks and bbqs of course!). Early Access is now available to Nordstrom cardholders. Enjoy amazing discounts on the upcoming season before they’re available elsewhere!

That way there’s an opportunity for everyone to find something they love. Just make sure you shop the items you want as soon as possible before they sell out. Shopper Perk: If you order online, you have the option to pick up in-store, even on the same day!

These tropical pants are giving me major vacation vibes. When it’s too hot to handle outside, you’ll want to swap your jeans with these laid back trousers. They’re super flattering with a chic tie waist front and comfortable wide leg fit. The bold leafy print is sure to draw all the right attention. Pair these Soft Surroundings Everglade Pants with a solid white blouse, crop top, or graphic tee. Punchy gold accessories will complete the look.
Dilemma: you’ve found a fabulous jumpsuit that you love, but it’s too revealing. The back is cut low or the straps are thin or maybe there’s a plunging neckline. But you still want to make it work in a more modest way. That’s when it’s prime time to layer a jumpsuit. This option will work whether you want to keep your look casual or dress things up. TIP: Choosing the right blouse with a complementary fit is key.
Jumpsuit: Target / Blouse: Ann Taylor / Sunglasses: Free People / Necklace: Target / Crossbody: Banana Republic (similar) / Sandals: Anthropologie (similar)
Here I’ve styled a sunny Target jumpsuit, now on CLEARANCE for $14, with a simple white top. I wanted a blouse with fluttery sleeves so that the top mimicked the volume in the pants. This one (now on sale for only $25) has extra pretty details with an eyelet border on the sleeves.
How to Layer a Jumpsuit that’s Dressy
If your jumpsuit is on the dressy side, try choosing a sheer or sparkly top underneath, but make sure things don’t get too busy. A top with embellished, bell, or billowing sleeves can also keep your look classy. Another option would be to go for a colorful or embellished sari blouse — these are usually cropped and will add an interesting element to your outfit.
Other Tops to Layer a Jumpsuit With
If you’re just getting started with this trend, try a simple white or solid t-shirt. Then play around with crop tops and off the shoulder blouses for summer and turtlenecks or long sleeved lace tops for winter. These are fun ways to layer a jumpsuit that anyone can master.
And the absolute easiest way to layer a jumpsuit is of course by adding a blazer, which I’ve done here. Throw on a jean jacket, fitted blazer, or cute cardigan to take your look from simple to polished.
Outfit Inspiration — A Gingham 4th! 4th of July fashion is all about showing your red, white, and blue pride. Who better than to look to for adorable July 4th outfit ideas than all American girl Reese Witherspoon. I’ve picked some of my favorite pieces from Draper James (there’s a limited collection dedicated to the 4th here) including this gingham summer maxi, now 70% off. You can beat the heat in this cold shoulder style and look adorable in the process. Hope you enjoy the fireworks!
Summer is upon us and with it comes light flowing beachy dresses. I’m all about the gauzy material of embroidered summer dresses like the Marla by Boden (also available in a top). Its lovely pops of pink and red complement each other so well. This dress is a great cover up on the beach or perfect on its own. A cinched waist and blouson sleeves give it that figure flattering form. Styled with punchy red accessories, it’s a fabulous summer look.
I recently attended an influencer party at Soft Surroundings in St. Louis. We browsed the latest collection and this particular kimono topper was the apple of everyone’s eyes. The casual cut, vibrant florals, and flattering silhouette stood out. I love a casual kimono jacket because it’s probably the easiest item to style — just add a cami, jeans, and sandals and you’re good to go. It’s the easiest 5 minute outfit and the kimono makes a statement all on its own.
The Casual Kimono Jacket – Shop these Summer Styles
If I could have a closet full of kimonos for the summer, I’d be perfectly happy with that. Here are some of my favorite styles starting around $30. Colorful, printed, and lightweight — these casual kimono jackets are the perfect summer toppers.
Today I’m mixing it up with a little pattern play. Where else can you see koi swimming around in a striped pond? If you know me, you know I love mixed prints and patterned pieces. But usually when I’m going party on top, I like to keep it business on the bottom to balance the look out. I’ve chosen these chic Tencel trousers from Soft Surroundings, which are the perfect white pants for summer.
Here’s a laid back summer outfit idea that will take you from work to the weekend.
This top is a fun addition to your classic shirt collection. Flowing pants give the overall look a soft, professional silhouette. In particular, I prefer wearing this top with the Islamorada pants, which have a comfortable and loose fit, unlike white jeans which often bunch up and emphasize everything. They’re the perfect white pants for summer!
If fish aren’t your thing, here are some of my favorite polka dot and striped styles for summer.
