The Three Colors of Summer

I know I am not the only Austin-ite ready for summer. I am looking forward to spending days on Lake Travis, picnics at Zilker Park, and indulging over some patio dining. 

Call me crazy, but despite the heat, I think Texas is a great place to live in the summer months—Austin in particular. Given the diversity of the city and all it has to offer, I often explore the outdoors sporting my more casual fashion as a result embracing the laid-back lifestyle.

There are several trends highlighting “casual” play this season,  including my three favorite colors of summer 2019. 

1.} BEIGE – First up we celebrate our friend, Beige. Trend reports enlist “Down to Earth” shades as paramount, so I cannot think of a better color to represent this essential neutral palette. Monochromatic, beige on beige concepts or outfits including dominant earth tones are head to toe looks I personally adore!

2.} FUCHSIA – Next up we have the “Electric Avenue” trend which is all.about.neon! If I have to pick my favorite eye catching color, I am going to have to say, “Neon fuchsia!” I am not afraid of a bold pop of color and have loved pink since I can remember. Fuchsia is a great choice for ladies who are not afraid to stand out in a crowd and take charge. This color is also great for all my Winter Tone ladies out there!

3.} LEOPARD – Finally, we have the “Wild Side” trend. I am going to be completely honest here…I LOVE LEOPARD print. I wear this “trend turned neutral” year round as this print is one of my favorite ways to add a little spice to any outfit. I don’t necessarily recommend a full head-to-toe leopard print ensemble but a subtle printed scarf or fun shoes can take your outfit to the next level. 

Now that I have bragged on my three favorite colors for summer 2019, what are your faves? Is there any colors you adore that aren’t on my list?

Comment below and let’s chat about it.

Vacay Chic at Fab’rik

Fab'rik blogger

 

Hello my lovely ladies! I am so excited to announce the upcoming sip and shop happening this week at Fab’rik. Join me Thursday, from 4 PM to 6 PM to see the latest in vacay chic fashion. I will be helping style outfits for your beach trips, lake trips, and all the trips in between! It’s time to kick off your summer in style, and Fab’rik is the perfect place to do it.

And of course, for my fabulous friends, I have to give a little sneak peek. Here are two outfits, one for day and one for night, that I couldn’t take my eyes off of!

Let’s dive right in to this amazing Fab’rik tank and short combo. If you are anything like me, shorts are a tough one. Finding a pair that is long enough to feel comfortable but stylish enough to look good is not always easy. These are perfect! The pink and purple pattern is adorable and great for throwing on and going to the pool or into town for a little shopping excursion. The pop of pink is great for breaking up an outfit, and the lace up shoes are a nice touch. You can also throw on a pair of sandals or a wedge to dress the outfit up or down.

And for night… This maxi is AMAZING! For someone who is not a maxi kind of girl, I have been taken by this one. I will let you in on a secret…it is the first maxi I have added to my wardrobe since the season of wearing maternity clothes in 2003 when I gave birth to my son. I know –crazy. The pattern is perfect for beach wear, and not “so in your face” you could put in in your regular wardrobe rotation! Paired with some wedges and a fab hat you are set for the sun! I added a strappy bra-let under my maxi to add a little added detail.

I would also like to take a moment to point out the amazing beaded stackable TEE bracelets I’m wearing. These are a Fab’rik staple, and a statement piece in your accessory collection. They are sweet, simple, and affordable but make a great impact for any outfit.

You can purchase all of these items Thursday night! Hoe to see you there!

JUST IN TIME FOR MEMORIAL DAY

Memorial Day Outfit

DRESS // EARRINGS (Similar HERE) // PURSE // SHOES (similar HERE)

Many of you asked about the dress I wore to the Lake Travis Education Foundation’s Butterfly Brunch so I am here to give you a little insiders look – just in time to be inspired by red, white and blue for Memorial Day.

 

This Derek Lam off-the-shoulder dress is perhaps my FAVORITE I have purchased in a long time. Its light weight fabric is breezy for the already hot summer days, and it works great for day to night wear. In the images above, I paired it with a pair of thick heeled sandals (similar HERE) and a fabulous cork Elaine Turner bag. Add a pop of red color in the earrings and your all set for Memorial Day on the boat or out in the town!

 

Memorial Day is one of honor, and though it might sound silly to some, I feel appriciation can be shown in the things you wear. I know I’ll be dawning my red, white and blue loud and proud, will you??

 

Shop this look and similar ones throughout the post! And for those of you wanting a little gift, use discount code JYOUNG for 20% VIP access on all things Elaine Turner.

What’s in my Pool Bag?!

 

 

BAG // SUNSCREEN // TOWEL // FLIP FLOPS // FLAMINGO // WATER BOTTLE // EVIAN // HAIR SPRAY // LIP BALM // FACE SUNSCREEN // SUNGLASSES // BANGLES // HAT // TUMBLER // COVERUP

Hey Y’all!

Summer has officially arrived and given the Texas heat I have been lounging by the pool just about everyday to cool off. There is nothing better than bagging some rays {Did I just say that–I am totally dating myself?} with a good read to relax and unwind.

My “fun in the sun” tote always includes a colorful towel, stylish shades, and my favorite sunscreen. My go-to spots for the best swimwear can be found at Nordstroms and Everything But Water. Don’t forget your woven hat that provides a stylish way to protect you from harmful sun rays but also to perfectly disguise a bad hair day from sweat and being wet!

For all the stylish moms out there, I know going to the pool or beach can be such a hassle especially if you have kids so hopefully my list of pool bag essentials will inspire you to plan ahead and feel more equipped for your next outing.

What is in your pool bag? We would love to hear from you.

Styled and Smiling,
