MCFT: Summer Staple Pieces with Geeky Flare

irls

With summer finally in full swing here in St. Louis, I had a chance to break out my hot-weather wardrobe, and it feels so good! I wanted to share with you a few looks from my closet that are similar for you to try out yourself. Here’s my summer must-have’s of the year.

Printed shorts are my go-to for chilling out on the weekend. They’re very Kimmy Schmidt-esque. They’re cute, comfortable and can be worn with any solid colored top. This pair of flamingo shorts is made for summer concerts, beach trips and getting wine with Titus.

Off-the-shoulder is very trendy right now; whether it’s a top or a dress, you’ll be staying cool with the “cold shoulder” detail. Check out my Belle inspired look with a plain pair of jeans and white top. Splash in some nice brown leather and yellow and you’re casually Disney-bounding! What’s great about this trend is you can find it in most retail stores in a variety of colors and sizes.

This outfit and the one above it have something in common… A gorgeous bralette! They are my favorite thing this summer! Cool and pretty under my favorite shirts and so, so comfortable. Victoria’s Secret has them on sale right now! You can find them in other stores too, but I like mine a lightly lined and not so see-through. I took a page from Megara’s book and paired it with purple and brown.

Maxi skirts are now a big thing in my summer closet. They’re cool enough to get me through hot days but chic enough for every day at the office. Just add unicorns for a splash of magic! (I’ve been on a unicorn kick since I saw Nerdy Nummie’s Unicorn Cake.) The skirt I have is from Torrid and has a sexy slit up the side (to keep you cool of course!). It’s also fun to pair these up with colorful geeky tops and cute themed clutches.

My Current Favorite Things

Chokers

I got these beauties on sale at Earthbound while I was at home for the holidays. They’re simple and complete any outfit. I’m in love with these chokers!

 

Gold Lotus Coasters

My dad made me a beautiful wooden coffee table when I moved to Missouri. I didn’t want it to get ruined so I had been using towels under my drinks. I also found these babies on sale at Earthbound but it looks like they’re sold out online!

 

Hogwarts Landscape Skater Dress

This was one of my Christmas gifts to myself. I can’t wait for the weather to warm up a little around here so I can wear this to work!

 

Kerli’s Independent Album

One of my favorite artists of all time. I pre-ordered this album so I’m not sure where you can buy it yet. She’s inspirational and has the voice of an angel. I can’t get enough of her music.

 

BBxRaven of Teen Titans

After seeing Gabriel Picolo’s artwork of Icarus and the Sun, I found his amazing Teen Titan pieces. I fell extra hard for Raven and Beast Boy and this “moving in together” artwork and similar drawings.
