It's that time of the year again: summer camp time! However, I think I've developed a method to balancing two jobs and blogging. We'll see how well it works this summer :)

I call this my "Summer Staple Outfit" because every item is something I'd consider crucial for an effective and efficient summer wardrobe.

  • Floppy Sun Hat - Essential! Keep those rays away from your face.
  • Lightweight White Cardigan - Great for transitioning into cool summer nights.
  • DIY cutoffs & bright colors - Because... why not? (hehehe)
  • White Flats - Best season for these babies

What items are necessary for your summer wardrobe?

White has simply become my neutral of choice. It's easy, fresh, and easily brightens up every outfit. The heat was semi-unbearable today so I threw on this lightweight shirt to keep me cool while keeping the sun off my back. It worked!

Take the challenge: Will you be bright? Let me know in the comments!

What I'm Wearing*
Earrings: The Limited | Necklace: Talbots | Bracelets: ALDO | Purse: my sister's closet
Pants: Talbots | Flats: DSW

*I wore this outfit during the end of June, but didn't get to post it until now, so it'll count for July :)

After I did my June outfit roundup, I realized that I wore black in all but ONE outfit (and that's not a norm for me)! I love color and print and I tend to avoid black on most days but it seems that it accompanied me and my outfits more than I would have liked.

Now, black can be really chic... I have nothing against it at all--I wear black everyday with this beautiful skin I'm in! But, it such a safe color... and who wants to play it safe?!

Soooo, for that reason, I am presenting this challenge (to myself, my friends, my fellow bloggers and anyone else who is up for it) :

BE BRIGHT!


When you find black being your neutral of choice, replace it with another to brighten up your look (beige, ivory, taupe, navy, gray, or white).

If you'd like to be a part of this challenge (just for this month) let me know in the comments. Over the next couple of days, I'll develop some buttons, a link up and I'll think up some prizes to make this more fun!
