August may be drawing to a close but that doesn’t mean that summer weather is over in Nashville. I know all you Basic B’s are getting stoked on Pumpkin Spice Lattes, but here are a few outfit combinations that will keep you looking cool until its time to put out the Jack-O-Lanterns.

Grown Up PJs

These fun PJ-inspired pants are as comfy as they are stylish

Add some fun bracelets, fringe bag, and hoop earrings to give your look a 70s vibe

Sorry Not Sorry

My favorite phrase is perfect on a t-shirt when you’re out grabbing brunch

Elevated Pastel

These floral pastel shorts are perfect for attending Live on the Green or a summer festival

Pastel Jewelry

Even delicate jewelry can make a big statement

BBQ Chic

A backyard BBQ doesn’t mean you have to dress down. Keep cool in patterned shorts and an off the shoulder top

BBQ Chic

Sometimes the small details, like the bow at the waist or a slouchy tuck of the shirt, can really give an outfit a fabulous yet effortless feel

Layering Jewelry

A few layered necklaces and bangle bracelets pulls everything together. You will reuse these items throughout the year, so they are a great buy

Date Night

Date night doesn’t have to be any less fabulous because its hot out. Simple color blocking and clever accessorising means you can keep it simple but still look hot

Date Night Red Lips

With a chic topknot and red lips he won’t be able to look away

Formal Wear

Summer formal wear doesn’t have to be stuffy

Formal Wear

The stripes on the dress play off the strappy heels, while the subtle snakeskin clutch allows for classy and effortless mixing of prints

Formal Wear Accessories

You know its going to get hot on that dance floor, so keep this wedding-appropriate look easy with simple accessories, hair up, and red lips

Concert

Don’t be afraid to be bold, especially when you are going to a concert or music festival. That old band T you have lying around gets upcycled with an edgy skirt for a fun look

 

I hope you guys have enjoyed these summer looks. Most of the items are from Francescas in Green Hills and were interspersed with items from my closet and Charissa’s (model) closet. We had so much fun doing this shoot and I hope that these looks will inspire you to finish out your summer in style.
