Hello Summer :: part 1, tanks & fringe

Sunday, May 17, 2015

Welcome to the first installment of my Hello Summer series, a collaboration extravaganza with YouTube sensation Katy Bellotte of HelloKaty. Katy and I had so much fun shooting these photos for you all and there's video footage too (including behind the scenes shots)! Checkout the super cool vid Katy put together for her channel by clicking here
My Hello Summer series is inspired by all things, well, summer! Katy and I drew inspiration from long sunny days, starry nights, and sizzling hot styles that are our favorite of-the-moment trends. The looks we prepared for you are fresh, current, and will take you from one summer adventure to the next without missing a beat. Enjoy our first looks! 
This layered necklace is so versatile and eye-catching and I just love its one-and-done mentality. While I still get the super trendy look of having layered jewelry, it's all just one piece, which makes accessorizing a cinch. 
I decided to pair my white skirt with sneakers rather than sandals because I love the appeal of contrasting elements in one look. These sneaks dress down my outfit in the coolest, most laid-back way possible. They give my look an effortless, easygoing vibe, which grasps the mood of summer perfectly. 
I am a huge accessories girl but for this look I wanted to keep my extras refined and minimal. This cuff adds major polish to my ensemble without drawing too much attention to itself. I love its subtle yet impactful allure. 
My favorite thing about my first Hello Summer look is its undeniable versatility. It's easy for anyone to recreate with items they already own, and it's a polished yet sporty look that works in almost any summertime situation. 
On Kathleen// tank: Loft, skirt: Ann Taylor, sneakers: Converse, necklace: Loft (I also like this one), cuff: Loft (I also like this one), earrings: Kate Spade, silver bracelet: Tiffany & Co.
Katy takes modern fairytale dressing to the next level in ethereal layers, light fringe, and sparkling details. Her look is ideal for summer festivals, daycations, or anywhere you can find outdoor music. 
Fringe is an elegant way to capture the so-now 70s vibe that's been influencing much of the fashion world lately. Not to mention it's fun to twirl in ;) 
Katy's simple, delicate necklace is the icing on her perfectly-styled cake. Who knew such a small accessory could make such an impact? 
Down here in the South, where Katy and I both go to school, cowboy boots are a staple. I've learned that there's nothing they don't go with. 
How gorgeous and magical is this slip? I can't get over the intricate detailing and all that sparkle! Such a beautiful way to add some twinkle to an airy daytime look. 
On Katy// Vest: Free People, shorts: Free People, Bralette: Urban Outfitters, slip: Urban Outfitters, boots: Ariat (I like these too), necklace: Etsy (I like this one too)

Stay tuned for our next summertime look. Hint - it's red hot!
