Our family vacation to Cancun last week was amazing! It was our first trip with the kiddos out of the country and I was so nervous. To my utter surprise, all of my three kids did great! Yes, there was complaining about the heat, humidity, and feeling hungry all of the time! Yet, they managed to show mental and physical toughness when it came to snorkeling for the first time in cold and active waves, waiting patiently during customs, and flexibility when the weather didn’t cooperate.
When it comes to style I have realized there are not set rules, especially living in Southern California. I feel that everything goes, when styled well. I love the color black. The simplicity and chicness of black is timeless and effortless. Some may say this color is only reserve for colder months, but I think black is also suitable for summer. Here are my five favorite tips to wearing black all summer long!
5 Tips to Wearing Black All Summer Long
#1 Sport Your Black Jacket – There is no reason to keep your black blazer or jacket in the closet. Wear it in the summer with a flowly slip dress or distressed denim jeans and sandals.
#2 Go with the Flow – Flowy pieces add an airiness to black ensembles. I love my ruffled mermaid style skirt. It adds a softness to this modern skirt making it suitable for summer.
#3 Keep it Strappy – When wearing black in the summer your footwear should show some skin. Choose footwear that is strappy which creates a casual cool vibe.
#4 Embrace the Curls – Keep your hairstyle natural. If you have natural curls just go with it. Messy buns, textured braids, and natural waves helps keep your look easy and breezy.
#5 Sport the Shades – Keep your look cool with incredible shades! Sport sunglasses to protect your eyes and reflect your style. Any look in black looks summer ready with a great pair of sunnies.
