Embellished Tank for Your Summer Wear

I am back into the swing of things after my long Caribbean vacation, but I am still feeling so inspired by many of the beautiful vibrant colors that surrounded us throughout our trip! So, I was very drawn to this colorful tank from Anthro! It is actually pretty flowy at the bottom so it would wear fantastically untucked with pants or shorts. I just loved how it worked with this black maxi skirt, and I think it channels a fun bohemian summer look. I think a lot of us tend to wear less black during warmer weather months, but I say if you pair it well with bright colors it can optimize a sultry summer ensemble perfectly.

Oh. My. Gee!! This skirt is everything to me. Wearing it, twirling in it, and dancing the night away in it made me feel like a princess. Where did I wear this gem you ask? In vibrant Viejo San Juan, Puerto Rico! The occasion – none other than an authentic Latin wedding – live SALSA band and all! I wish I could show oodles of photos from the gorgeous wedding. That treat will be coming our way by their uber talented photographer, Couture Studios – feature will be on Couture Studios Blog on Tuesday! Ah- I can’t even wait! Anywho- I want to give a few helpful style tips that will help you when choosing your ensemble to wear to that special occasion in your future!

  • If you don’t know the dress code, ask! It’s always better to be safe than sorry- showing up in a causal beach dress to a traditional club house wedding may not be the best way to make an entrance!
  • When in doubt, a little black dress is always a winner. Try spicing it up with a colorful heel or statement necklace!
  • Decide whether you want to stand out or blend in! That may depend on the occasion and the attendees, and of course we always want to be a chic “it girl,” not the girl everyone is whispering about because she wore a white dress to a wedding!
  • Take advantage of asking for a customer associate or personal stylists assistance at your go-to store. It is always wise to get a second opinion or have someone pull out something you may not have thought to try on yourself.

In case you didn’t notice, that’s my hunky husband, Alex, standing by my side in this last photo. And to top off the festivities, it was his birthday! Really, he is my everything, and he is the man behind my photos! Since starting this blog it has been super important to me that I feature quality photos. While I realize we still have lots to learn, I think he’s doing a darn good job already! Am I right?! It has also been a fun project for us to work on together, pulling us off the couch, away from Netflix, and out into the world around us!
