Before you know it every summer party, concert, carnival, and festival will be upon us. Whether you're heading out of town or staying at home. Here are a few suggestions that won't break the bank or upcharge your suitcase weight. 

Denim is hot and is everywhere. I never thought I would hear myself say this but " Denim on Denim is a good thing !" Choose one key denim piece like a skirt, overalls, or jacket and go from there. Overalls are perfect for hikes or camping trips. If your headed to the country for a weekend bring your kicks and long sleeve shirt. You don't want mosquito bites blah!


Headed to a backyard bbq? You will likely be eating tons of good food, soaking up the sun and maybe playing some backyard badminton. Best choice a pair of shorts so you don't have to worry about keeping your skirt or dress under control. Sneakers are probably a good idea since you will be walking in the grass, but you can always opt for flip flops since they are super trendy this summer. And don't forget your sunscreen.

Summer boat ride anyone? If you're invited aboard someone's boat (um, lucky), keep things elegant but summery with printed high-waist shorts and a modest crop top. Once again wearing the shorts will avoid an embarrassing situation on a windy boat ride Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch! A cute strappy or gladiator sandal will polish the look.


Rooftop cocktails at sunset sound's perfect! Heading to a local hotel for a cocktail. Opt for a summery skirt and simple tank top that can easily take you to dinner afterward.


With so much going on in the summer months it's hard to figure out what you're going to wear. This quick guide will come in handy when you run out of ideas! Oh, save me a spot on the boat!
