Monthly Musings July 2021: Summer Fashion


Happy Thursday Besties! I know I have been a little absent from this site but I am here today. There are some big life things that have taken my time lately but I am hoping that things will normalize soon. Since it is the last Thursday of the month, I am linking up with Holly  for Monthly Musings and this month we are talking summer fashion. There are still plenty of days left in this summer and plenty of time to look cute. If you are joining us for Monthly Musings as a blogger, please link back to Holly and me and use the link below.

1. Bikini, Tankini or One Piece

For someone who is not that tall, I have a long torso. I would love to wear a one piece but they never fit me correctly so I am all about a tankini. 

2. Best Swimsuit I Have Ever Owned

About 15-20 years ago, I had a Nautica tankini in navy that I loved. It fit well and looked cute. I am still thinking about that one and trying to replicate it. This season I have a Calia one and have this one on it's way to me in black. 

3. White Jeans...Yes or No?

***contains affiliate link

I am a big yes on white jeans and this is one of my favorite outfits right now.

4. Favorite Pair of Flip Flops

I love Oka B flip flops. They are all I wear. I have them on in the photo above. They are cute and super supportive and I am pretty sure they cured my plantar fasciitis. Here are similar ones

5. Must Have Summer Accessory?

I have to have a Good pair of sunglasses. They don't have to be expensive, they just have to be cute. 

I currently have this pair from Peepers and love them. They are my go to brand.

6. Favorite Summer Fashion Staples?

I love a good throw on dress. Sometimes I am just more comfortable in little shift than shorts. 

7. Skirts or Shorts?

Honestly, I like a little skirt more but somehow end up in shorts more.

8. Any Brands that Just Say Summer to You?

Oh so many brands say summer to me: Lilly Pulitzer, Vineyard Vines, Murray's and Oka B.

9. Favorite Summer Scent

I pretty much just wear Chance by Chanel all the time. 

10. Do You Switch Your Handbag in Summer?

Oh I switch my handbag all the time. On the weekend I am currently carrying the Crush It Camera bag in navy.

That's a wrap on my summer fashion faves for Monthly Musings. If you would like to link up, please do so below. We just ask that you keep it on topic and try to visit as many of the others that joined in for Monthly Musings too.

  1. LOVE the white jeans on you friend- stunning and I checked out that tankini you ordered- totally my style- love the sportiness of it- we are so alike!

  2. You look great in those white jeans! I am with you on the sunglasses. I must have them all summer long! Long torsos can be so tough for one pieces. Thanks for hosting! Have a great day!

  3. I love that almost every single one of us mentioned a different brand of flip flops/ sandals and I am so excited to try out all these other brands and styles. I just love flip flops! You look great in your jeans and navy top; very classic summer.
