Do's and Don'ts: Summer Look Edition

I am such a novice at summer fashion.  To be real honest with you, I prefer fall and winter clothing.  I'm a lover of jewel tones, cardigans, tights, and layering.  Summer clothes freak me out.

But, I'm getting better.  I know what I love, and what I hate.  And I'ma share my knowledge (opinion) with you.

DO soft hair.  

Loose waves and messy braids have taken ownership of my heart.

DON'T over tan yourself.
Amber from Teen Mom.  Wha?

DO wear dresses

Embrace your bare legs while you can.

DON'T wear wear ill-fitting rompers.
Seriously.  No one wants to look like they have diaper butt.

DO a bright colored lip.
It'll be pretty.  I promise.

DON'T do bright eye shadow and a bight lip.
I promise, you will look scary.

So.  There's my two cents.  Whadda you think?  What are the best and worst summer trends this season?

Love your tips!! I need to try the whole braided hair thing. My hair isn't super long, so it might be a challenge. I am huge fan of dresses. Summer clothes freak me out too. I feel like I either have horrible summer clothing or I just don't know what I am doing with it! haha! I am glad that I am not alone! :) I am not a huge fan of oxfords. I see them everywhere!! I am loving rompers, but sadly, this is one trend I can't wear! :(

I really like your tips, Chelsea! Especially the romper thing...I don't like all. Lol! I think its better to know what you like and don't like than be super knowledgeable about fashion.

I just have one correction, if I may. I would like to look like I have a diaper butt so that it would appear I have one at all! Just saying.

Okay, crazy obsessed with this post because it is DEAD ON... especially the over-tanning tip. I see that far too much and it just looks painful. So glad I found your blog. :)

I love braids but just as I was getting good at it I decided to cut my hair short. All well.

Sold! I just found your blog, I second ALL of those motions, and I am now a follower :)

LOL - the DON'Ts were hilarious!

I totally agree! Summer is all about effortlessness-- in make up, hair and clothing. It doesn't mean you should be all frumpy, with no makeup whatsoever or with a messy head of hair. It's an art every girl should master! :)

gross. gross. gross. Who in their right mind would design a romper?! For reals. That's yucky. If it doesn't fit the model well, heaven knows they're doing an ill to society by selling them!
