14 Summer Style Must-Haves

Summertime is kicking off and we have three months of fun in the sun awaiting us! At the start of each new season, I love to share the new and old pieces in my wardrobe that I’ll be wearing, along with how I’ll be styling them. My hope is the rundown of summer style must-haves will help you get the most out of your wardrobe and give you some inspiration for new styles to try.

Now for my 14 Summer Style Must-Haves …

Note: Each must-have item below is linked with the item I own, followed by a few additional options at various price points.

#1 – Bathing Suit

Finding a good bathing suit that fits you well is key! I’m obsessed with the scoop neck one piece suit pictured above. The cut is practical and simple, the fit is perfect and the print is fun! It also comes in a classic bikini, if that’s more your style.

#2 – Cover-Up

I love cover-ups! There are a lot of wrap ones this season, but I really like the ones I can throw over my head and go. The one I found on Amazon this season is such a steal and comes in a ton of styles!

#3 – Layered Necklace

This is my new favorite accessory trend! I love how pretty the delicate necklaces look together. These work well with v-neck tanks or shirts and simple high-neck tops.

#4 – Leopard Sandals

I still can’t get enough of leopard. Plus, I have a true obsession with leopard print being on my feet. So it was a no-brainer to get some leopard-print sandals. The ones I got have such a nice cushion to them and the higher band keeps them from sliding off.

#5 – Graphic Tee

This is another trend I’m enjoying this summer. There are some really fun ones out there and they’re fun to style with denim shorts on the weekend.

#6 – Denim Shorts

I’ve been pretty lucky finding shorts at different price points that fit well! My white denim shorts, pictured above and below, are more expensive, but really great quality and fit true to size. The faded denim shorts, pictured below, are an amazing steal if you’re on a budget. They fit true to size but I ordered up just for a more relaxed fit.

#7 – Straw Hat

I love the straw hat I got this spring. Pictured below (and all over my Instagram!), it just has a way of spicing up my summer outfits and pulling them together. It doesn’t hurt that it keeps my face from getting too much sun either.

#8 – Midi Dress

Midi dresses are definitely having a moment right now, and I’m all about it. As someone on the taller side (5′ 8″), it is so nice to not worry if a maxi dress will be long enough. The one I’m wearing above fits true to size and could easily take you from day to night.

#9 – Striped Top

Bold, colorful stripes in the summer are my jam! I like having more casual and dressy-er options on hand too.

#10 – Straw or Basket Bag

For our spring beach trip, I found an affordable basket purse that I thought would be fun. Now, I’m surprised much it’s already been put to good use. They are perfect for the beach and summer in general! I also was in need of a new tote for work and travel, so I got one with a mix of straw and a leather bottom. It is so cute!

#11 – White Top

I know! This is as basic as it gets, but there’s no better time to be sporting a fresh white top than the summertime. I found a great light linen, pocket tee that I’ve been wearing on repeat. But, I also like to have a dressier white tank in the summer. They just go with EVERYTHING.

#12 – Woven Earrings

I am loving the look of woven statement earrings. Neutral ones will seriously work with every summer outfit you can think of.

#13 – White Jeans

This is a summer must-have you’ll wear for years to come. I wear a more straight leg for casual work outfits and skinny ones with flowy, loose tops.

#14 – Espadrille sANDALS

Last but not least, this is a pretty obvious summer must-have for me. I love heeled espadrilles, but there are some cute espadrilles that don’t have a heel. If you want something more comfortable and just as cute, I recommend these!

Phew, if you made it through my list, thank you!! Now, I would love to know. What are your summer style must-haves? Are any of them the same as mine? Let me know what you can’t stop wearing this season in the comments!

Cheers,

Four Faux Fur Vest Style Tips

Four Faux Fur Vest Style Tips - Lou Lou Boutiques Old Town Alexandria - SCsScoop.com

Hi friends! Fall is in full swing and the holidays are creeping up so fast. Frankly, it’s kinda scary how fast this year has gone by. Today, I am excited to be collaborating with Lou Lou Boutiques on a special post for y’all. I am sharing four faux fur style tips – say that five times fast! And, the faux fur vest I’m sporting is in Lou Lou Boutiques’ stores and online. Fur vests can be such a fun way to spice up an outfit and add some interest your look. The tips below will help you style a fur vest now, at Thanksgiving dinner, through the holidays and well into the winter season.

Faux Fur Vest Style Tips

#1 – Keep it simple. Pairing a simple dress with your vest will let it stand out. I also recommend choosing only one (or two at the most)

#2 – Pick a vest that accentuates your body. To keep you legs looking long, choose a vest that hits at your hips. On the flip side, if you have a short torso, try a vest that goes below your hips.

#3 – When in doubt, opt for all black or neutrals. If your fur vest has a lot of color variation or a fun texture and you’re feeling unsure how to style it, pair the vest with black pieces to create a chic look that is perfect for the holiday season. You can also never go wrong with pairing a fur vest with jeans and a white turtleneck.

#4 – Pair with chunky sweaters and cardigans. As the season gets colder, don’t be afraid to add layers under your vest. For the look I’m wearing, a chunky black sweater underneath the fur vest to make it warmer and winter-friendly. At the same time, my look would work just as well without the leather leggings I have on.

11 Most Amazing Amazon Designer Dupes

Amazing Amazon Designer Dupes

Hello friends! If you have been following along on the blog or Instagram, you probably already know – I am all about affordable style! But, achieving a cute “look for less” can require a lot more  research and trial and error, compared to buying designer, high-end items off the rack. Some may say if you sacrifice the price, you sacrifice the quality, but I disagree. There are a lot of items marked up exponentially, purely because of the label. At the same time there are cheap brands out there that are best to stay away from. It’s complicated for sure, but today I am here to help you navigate through all the online shopping options! I’m sharing 11 amazing Amazon designer dupes that prove it is definitely possible to get items for less that still look top-notch.

> The Amazon Designer Dupes for You! < 

#1 – DESIGNER: Celine Micro Luggage Tote, $2,850  | DUPE: Amazon, $115

The Amazon dupe for this designer tote is amazing quality for the price! It is genuine leather and feels so good to the touch. Everything from the liner to the pockets and zippers make me feel like I have the real deal. It’s no wonder so many people compliment the bag, thinking it is the designer version, when I wear it. The brand that makes the Amazon dupe makes lots of other dupes as well and there is a wide range of colors to choose from!

#2 – DESIGNER: Valentino Rockstud Pointy Toe Pump, $875 | DUPE: Amazon, $48

I wore the designer dupes for my bachelorette party at the beginning of the year. Both the pumps and my feet lasted a whole night, walking around Charleston. They’re so fun and they really look like the real deal!

#3 – DESIGNER: Gucci Leather Belt with GG Buckle, $450 | DUPE: Amazon, $14

These belts are so popular and trendy lately, but who knew you could get one for a mere fraction of the cost! As you’ll see on the Amazon page there are lots of great reviews and photos of the dupe.

#4 – DESIGNER: Chloe Faye Suede & Leather Shoulder Bag, $1,950 | DUPE: Amazon, $65

I have been eyeing this bag for quite some time, so I was super excited to find a dupe for only $85. Wouldn’t this color be perfect for fall and winter?

#5 – DESIGNER: Topshop Stripe Colorblock Cardigan, $85  | DUPE: Amazon, $27

This Topshop cardigan sold out so quickly during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I haven’t seen it in stock in my size since. Luckily the Amazon dupe is identical!

#6 – DESIGNER: Valentino Rockstud Flat, $775 | DUPE: Amazon, $115

Black flats are a staple for all wardrobes, but this designer dupe ups the fashion game! These would look great from day to night and from work to play!

#7 – DESIGNER: Stuart Weitzman Over-the-Knee Boots, $798 | DUPE: Amazon, $34

 

I hesitate to splurge on trendy pieces like over-the-knee (OTK) boots because you don’t know how many seasons they’ll last you. The Amazon designer dupe has so many good reviews and they have the high end look at a fraction of the cost.

#8 – DESIGNER: Hermès Garden Party Tote, $3,500  | DUPE: Amazon, $138

Both the designer and dupe version of this tote is so classic and charming. The Amazon dupe has so many colors to pick from as well!

#9 – DESIGNER: David Yurman Oval Link Bracelet, $1,850 | DUPE: Amazon, $17

Accessories can make an outfit, but it’s nice when that doesn’t require breaking the bank, right?! This dupe looks so good and the style will go with everything.

#10 – DESIGNER: Hermes Oran Sandal, $700 | DUPE: Amazon, $40

If you missed these sandals over the summer, where were you?! Just kidding. These popular slide sandals are the perfect minimalist touch to any summer outfit. The dupe on Amazon is a tenth of the price and just as cute!

#11 – DESIGNER: Cult Gaia Mini Ark Handbag, $138. | DUPE: Amazon, $38

This is another super popular and trendy piece for warmer weather. The dupe looks so amazing too! Can you tell the difference?!

What do you think?

I would love to hear if you have gotten any Amazon designer dupes or dupes from anywhere else. Of the amazing dupes I shared which one is your favorite? Let’s chat in the comments.

Cheers!
