Violet Vibes in Paradise
Happy mid-May! As this month is unfolding, I’m definitely feeling the warmth of Spring, and all the positive energy awakening around me very inspiring, and I’m looking ahead to a great (and busy) Summer.
As I’m helping my clients shop for their Summer Wardrobes, this year (and every year) I’m encouraging them to build simple yet chic outfits with a minimal number of pieces that create a story together through color. When the weather gets really hot, I always feel that less is more when it comes to layers and details – so I like to choose pieces that tell a story – and continue that story into my accessories to complete the look. To illustrate this, I created a Summer ensemble in this post, styled around an adorable printed Ulla Johnson dress, tying the look together with different shades of pink and purple.
The exact ingredients of this outfit formula are:
- A Pretty Dress. I think the colors of this Naomi Dress by Ulla Johnson are ideal for Spring and Summer. The dress is fresh, feminine and flirty – cute without being cutesy. The little puff sleeves and front bow-ties (which I left untied) add a little dressiness to the piece. It’s also short but not too short – keeping you cool.
- The Simple Comfortable Sandals. I spend a lot of my day on my feet – between running around client sessions and after my toddler, so it’s uber important for me that my shoes are comfortable as well as stylish. I’ve been a long-time fan of Vionic Shoes, so when I saw their Lupita Sandals, I knew they would be a great Summer shoe that combines comfort with cuteness.
- A Pretty & Feminine Bag. I’m getting tons of wear out of my new Polene Numero Un Nano Bag – I think it goes with so many different types of looks! I especially love the lilac color – it’s feminine and refined. I’ve shared an unboxing of it on my instagram and will be styling a few more looks with it over the coming weeks, so stay tuned! I’ve also found a few Polene bag styles on eBay and Vestiaire Collective (a great resale site for amazing brands at amazing prices) – take a look at the carousel below! If you’re unfamiliar with the brand, you can check out my recent post to learn a little bit about it.
- A Pair of Cat-eye Sunglasses. These Chloe Sunglasses complete the look, and the cat-eye shape is still super popular this Season – a total must-have for any Spring/Summer outfit.
I hope this inspires you to try out a similar outfit this Summer! As always, please feel free to share the outfits you create via Instagram, using hashtag #ModnitsaOutfit in your posts, and I’ll be sure repost them on my stories!
