Green isn’t just the color of envy; it’s also the shade of summer elegance. A green sundress with a funky neckline and a playful hemline will have you feeling like a summer goddess. And with a cute color-contrasting orange sweater, this is perfect for breezy beach weather when the nights get cooler. (Or for my fellow West Coast girlies, where it’s always a lil chilly.) Whether you’re exploring local markets or lounging on a yacht, this dress is a show-stopper. Pair it with cute yellow sandals and purple sunnies for even more pops of color (because enough is never enough!) and a funky raffia bag for an extra touch of, well.. EXTRA.

Embrace your inner fashion maverick with a daring pairing of pink satin wide-leg pants and a blue corset top. (I love this top so much, I have it in EVERY color. And the best part is, it’s from Amazon, so it’s super affordable!) This vibrant combo is perfect for those who like to stand out from the crowd. The wide leg silhouette is comfy but still chic and trendy, while the structured corset adds a touch of glam. Complete the look with statement earrings and metallic sandals.

This is basically my summer uniform: any time I don’t know what to wear, I’ll just throw on a pair of colorful wide leg pants and my fave Amazon corset top (which is why I have it in so many colors!). 

Fun fact: I got my period in these pants and didn’t realize it, so I def had a lil whoopsie moment! Lol thank god it was nighttime and hopefully no one noticed. People shouldn’t be staring up your coochie crack anyways, amirite? Lmao
