On Sunday, I attended a family barbeque in this big green grassy park. It was fun (besides the fact that I barely knew anyone-yea they're not close family)! The food was great and it was a hot, bright and sunny day. The event reminded me that it's barbeque season and with July 4th (Independence Day) coming up I know there's going to be alot more, so I created this guide that will probably help you choose what to wear for a summer event.
You can pair a tank top with white capris. White capris are always a good look in the summer if you don't plan to roll around in grass and soil. The orange tank top above is from Victoria's Secret and you can get the capris from Aeropostale where they have a wide variety of them. I love the striped tank top that I would describe as somewhat tribal. You can easily pair them with shorts or any other top that you have in your closet. Or you can make things easier for yourself and just find a dress, which means you don't have to go looking around for top and bottom that compliment each other.
We also can't forget that a skirt is always an option. If you don't like your legs cover them with leggings or stockings. You can also go patriotic with the American Eagle red and blue striped top. Don't forget shoes! I love the simple leather braided sandals in the guide. Converses and Vans are also always out there if you rather wear shoes with shoelaces. They are made of thin material and doesn't get as hot as when you wear sneakers.
Since I can't post a picture of what I wore I'll tell you. I wore white/grey splattered distressed skinny jeans with a blue tank top that had layers. Some layers had lace and the others were just solid fabric. I wore a black mini cardigan that stopped above my stomach. I also wore black leopard flats that had a bow on each. I also wore a chained necklace that included grey ribbons to tie it in the back and it had a silver flower among the many chains. Hopefully that description gives you a good idea of what I wore.
Enjoy your fourth of July celebration among other summer events!
Fashionably yours, Amira J
