I absolutely love the summer months, but they seem to fly by.  It’s hard to pack in; weekend traveling, BBQ’s, music festivals, weddings, birthdays (you get the picture) – into only three very short months.

To make life a little easier, I’ve created a few looks that will hopefully inspire you when getting ready for all of your Summer festivities.

The carefree months of summer are the perfect time to play around with pattern mixing and trying out new bold colors.  If you’re not quite ready to dive right into that fuchsia dress, try accessorizing with the color – there are some great bold colored shoes and handbags for Summer 2012.  Try mixing some current trends (like the peplum trend) with your more basic/classic pieces – it’ll create a nonchalant look, perfect for this Summer!
