Summer Throwback

Summer is all about keeping it easy and simple.  I love putting together looks that keep me cool and comfortable in the hot summer weather, but also look effortlessly stylish.  There is something about the summer vibe that makes an easy look feel so right.

The orange maxi skirt below is one of my favorites.  I ordered it last year from Victoria’s Secret and would wear it almost everyday if I could.  Although this skirt is a neon orange, it is versatile and can be paired with just about anything with the right color palette and texture.  Last year, you might remember me pairing it with a jean button up shirt.  This summer, I decided to pair it with my white American Apparel body suit to create a simple minimalist look.  I added delicate accessories with my necklace from Trina Turk, earrings from H&M, and midi rings from Charlotte Russe.  I completed the look with my animal skin Steve Madden sandals and white rimmed glasses from H&M.


The goal for a well put together summer appropriate look is for it to appear effortless.  Summer is all about taking it easy and enjoying the weather and having a wardrobe that reflects that makes for a natural fashion ‘do’.


What are some of your favorite summer wardrobe staples?

  1. Nice post, Venus! I looove the neon maxi skirt, snake skin heels and gold accessories! You rocked it! I am also a fan of maxi (and midi) skirts. I just bought 2 more to add to my collection and have worn them this summer. You are right the effortless, “off duty” model look is quite appealing. I have paired the skirts with plain color tanks for a color block effect. Keep up the awesome posts!

  2. This look is perfect for the summer and maybe even the fall. I go for the more minimal pairings with dainty accessories, so I couldn’t help but to adore this look. Cute sandals too! Xx
