Styling 3 Summer Staples from Pretty Little Thing

Hey everyone! Today I'm making an appearance to talk about my 3 favorite summer staples and how I styled them for this 2019 scorcher here in Florida! I picked 3 items from Pretty Little Thing that I found to be summer necessities. That included a casual everyday dress, a dress for going out, and versatile top for the many pairs of shorts and skirts I'll be wearing!

For my first item, we've got the casual everyday summer dress. I picked this lovely little blue floral dress, with a dainty print and feminine neckline and sleeve detailing that keeps this dress cute while still being that flowy, lightweight dress that I need in my life for these Florida summers! The color and style of this dress makes it really just so easy to style. Here I wore it with chunky sneakers and gold accessories, but I would also pair it with wedges or nude sandals if I were wearing it out to hang with friends! You can even shop this dress in different color options, or even opt for this dress with no print!


The second item I picked was this white crop top with it's gorgeous big sleeves and front hook closures. I love these style tops, they are my favorite trend I've seen come into style lately. It has so much detail and holds such a vintage, delicate look and isn't too revealing, which is mostly why I don't buy cropped tops too often. I was worried about the sleeves in this near 100 degree weather, but surprisingly, they were quite airy! With the right balance on the rest of the outfit, this was quite the cool, comfy outfit. I balanced it out with some black lightweight biker shorts from Femme Luxe Finery and some lace up sandals because I think the detail in the sandals complimented the detail from the top very well! I would of course also style this top with a bright color or even printed shorts or skirts, and of course, just a good ol' pair of denim shorts or jeans. 



This last dress pick here has color, detail, and is a great dress if you're looking to go out and show off your legs! I think this dress has to be one of my favorites I've had in quite a while, the lace up back and the colors are just amazing. I'm a sucker for anything with a cute fruit print also doing the summer, and this dress of course has that gorgeous lemon print on it as well. If you like this print but this particular dress style isn't your thing, don't worry, they have a few different dress styles with the print! I thought it would be great to keep the color going through my earrings, and I wore my hair up in a messy pony to show off the back as much as I could! I can't wait to wear this one more, it's a great look for hanging out at beach bars and going to summer parties!
