Summer Styling with HauteLook


I feel like summer is one of those season’s that you can get away with simple outfits with bold accessories. I mean technically I’m just wearing a white tank (albeit adorable if I do say so myself) with jeans. But with my colorful necklace, loud shoes and pretty purse it looks much more interesting than just a white tank with jeans. Plus sometimes I just don’t want to think that hard about my outfit in the summer.  I’ll let my accessories do the talking. 

Also, do you remember the other day when I was waxing poetically about wanting a new purse? Found! Say hello to my new Cynthia Vincent purse that I found via HauteLook. Allow me to introduce you to each other. HauteLook is a limited-time sale event site from Nordstrom that updates daily with new designer items up to 75% off. That’s how I landed this purse for less than $100. (For example right now there are Dolce Vita shoes on mega sale. GO NOW.)

I picked out a few of my favorites below that are on sale now (since my shoes and purse aren’t available any longer). I stuck with shoes and purses because everyone loves shoes and purses, right? Sign up here to become a member and start shopping!

    I love the neon pops of color! You're absolutely correct – those are an easy way to make a "standard" outfit look fresh and not "standard."
