to sum(mer) it up...

memorial day weekend marks the start of my favorite time of the year...summer. i love the heat, the festivals, the outdoor patios, the music and most of all, the clothes. for me, summer is the easiest time to get dressed. throw something simple on, sandals, hair in a loose chignon and go. i don't overthink anything about my summer style. what i look for is comfort and simplicity. i can always accessorize accordingly. i live in jersey dresses, tanks and skirts, jeans and flat sandals. sunglasses are pivotal, and the hardest accessory for me...because i feel very few sunglasses look good on me. i tend to look like a beetle in 98% of the sunglasses i put on. do i have a freakishly small face? perhaps. but i see all of milwaukee looking stylish in their shades and i'm seriously jealous. why don't they look good on me? well, i have my ray ban aviators i bought in LA that i wear all the time, and even though they're not perfect, they come close. and now i'm obsessed with another pair of ray bans, the wayfarers with some cool, hippie-ish print on the top and they will be mine this week. my friend jillian has them and every time i see her i put them on. and fall in love. she said they only look good on us because we have baby faces and peanut heads, so yay for peanut heads! anyway, summer is right around the corner. riversplash is next week, summerfest a couple weeks away and i'm stoked. it's time to stop overthinking and just be comfy, casual and easy. the stylish, like annie at fred, will bust out her adorable fashion forward rompers, my friend alicia at lela will sport her printed maxi dresses, and i'll wear my overpriced but awesome william rast boyfriend shorts and we'll hit up all my favorite summer in milwaukee spots...and i couldn't be more excited. here's a photo diary of what exudes summer style in good ole milwaukee:

ahhhhh, now that's what i'm talking about. scroll back and forth and relish in the fact that it's so close. just around the corner. gotta love summer in milwaukee...this is why we endure eight months of wisconsin-weather hell.

so stop into fred and get your hands on all those cute and easy summer dresses, like this assymetric one-shoulder bright pink number below. think of all your favorite summer things and get that summer wardrobe ready!
