We are only 8 days away from the Summer Solstice and we are ready to rumble!!! Things are finally heating up in Los Angeles and what better way to dodge the rest of the June Gloom than getting in one of our favorite summer shades… fire engine red *ow OW!* It’s also quite appropriate considering we are weeks away from shaking our booties off during our happiest summer holiday, the 4th of July 🙂 So if you’re ready to pick some strawberries, picnic outside, and bask in the glory of the blazing sun take a look at our two OOTD options!
Get out your campers, it’s time for a road trip ladies and gentleman!!
Connie and I were shopping for our red hot colors and she opted for this RED RIBBED RACERBACK DRESS from Zara. Paired with her favorite white converse sneakers, it’s the perfect look for summer.
One of our favorite things about the dress is how comfortable it is… and, although form fitting, it’s actually quite relaxed around the body. It’s better to get a size that isn’t too tight on your initially because it will shrink a bit in the wash and items at Zara tend to run smaller. Wash in cold water with similar colors… you don’t want to accidentally turn your whites pink LOL!
What’s great is that you can also lounge in it, kick back and relax. If you’d like a pair of white Converse you can buy them HERE. We love that this makes the whole outfit more sporty!
Or you can also dress it up with some heels and VA-VA VOOM… you’ve got a dress that turns from day into night. You guys know how much we loooove that 🙂
Now if you want an even more casual version, you can opt for my Red Hot option!
It’s basically a one stop shop since Madewell made a whole line dedicated to our favorite summer color.
This VERSE TIE BACK TOP is pretty basic from the front, but it’s got a surprise in the back! I love the little bow detail and it gives you a little keyhole to make an otherwise conservative-ish top some sex appeal.
Paired with these HIGH RISE DENIM BOYSHORTS, it’s a great simple combo. If you are looking for a pair of shorts to cinch you in, these are great for the waist, especially if you have a booty. However, if you’re looking to lift the booty itself these may not be great for you. Depending on the thickness of your thighs, the legs may not work because they’ll be too tight and the cuff will not add extra support!
And if you’re looking for some fun accessories, these BEADED PARTY EARRINGS are all the rage right now. Poms and Pom shapes have been taking over the trends this spring and they’re not going away for summer. We’ve seen this style in Nordstrom, Jcrew, and other popular stores, but we love these beaded interpretations from Madewell.
And last but not least I’m all about these HOLLY ANKLE WRAP SANDALS!! They’re a bit pricier, but this is our splurge for the day:)
