Bodysuits are one of my favorite styles, in fact one that I wear all year long. Express, one of my favorite retailers has a great selection of bodysuits; including the one that I’m sharing today. This one is on sale and under $20. Plus, it has a fun cutout design on the back. So, I wanted to share it along with some other finds in the bodysuit department.
I love bodysuits because they can be worn so many ways, with jeans (like I did here), skirts, shorts, and even trouser. I also love that if it’s a style that buttons at the bottom, you don’t necessarily have to wear it that way, you can simply tuck it in and leave it unbuttoned. I point this out because many people have expressed their dislike for bodysuits because of the button requirement.
My style is mostly casual, especially in the summer. And I couldn’t help but wear this bodysuit with my favorite jeans – which I’m linking for you below. I blindly recommend these because they’re great quality. I have worn them many times to create different looks. To accomplish an absolute laid back and casual look, I kept all accessories to the minimum by wearing dainty pieces. Like the layered necklace look, which is somewhat new to me but I’m loving. I still want to add one more piece to complete it though. The bag you have seen many times before because it’s my summer go-to. 🙂 Now, I’m curious to know your opinion on bodysuits.
Shorts are an essential part of my summer wardrobe – especially living in Houston – temperatures as high at 90+ these are really a must. Because I spend a lot of time in these, I like having different options for styling them. Today I’m sharing six ways I like to wear them in the summer, to give you some inspiration when it comes to wearing shorts. 🙂
Shorts + Blouses
A blouse doesn’t always belong to a dressed up look. Sure they look great with trousers and skirts but jeans and jeans shorts are fair game too. In this look, I went for a casual vibe (my usual) wearing them with a blouse with my favorite slide on sandals, neutral handbag and minimal accessories.
Shorts + Sweaters
Of all the ways to wear shorts, I think wearing them with sweaters is one of my favorite. Especially if paired with a lightweight sweater, one that is breathable enough to wear in summer. This look I think is also perfect for beachside and lakeside days. 🙂
Confession: I almost skipped this week’s Trendy Thursday LinkUp… Because life is super busy right now. I have so much going on and so much to tell… And I will be sharing in due time. For now, let’s just focus on today’s link up. 🙂 Remember Shop Maia Lifestyle Shop which I shared on this post? Well, this gorgeous OTS top is also from the boutique. While I know I said I love the OTS top I shared a few weeks ago – and I still do – I love this one even more. I love, love, love the details; from the floral cut out to the OTS style to the bell sleeves.
Another item, I have been loving is my TOUS handbag… Isn’t it gorgeous? I am loving the color and see-through effect. It reminds me of the wooden handbags that are trending these summer days. The good thing about this one, is that it can be worn beyond summer. Plus, there’s a zipper canvas that goes inside the bags in this collection to help keep belongings neatly in place. This color is on sale and under $160 right now. If you want to get your hands on one, now is the time. 🙂
Happy Thursday… Do you have big plans for the weekend? I feel like summer is slipping away and I need to find ways to enjoy every last bit of it. 🙂 Life has been a bit complex around here and soon I’ll have big news for you. Until then, let’s enjoy summer!! Speaking of summer, isn’t this blouse just perfect for the season? I got it locally for under $20 and I love how light and breezy the fabric feels. Plus, the buttons and floral print are perfect details. I decided to pair it with my favorite wood accessories, the earrings and bag. My favorite jeans are also featured here, along with the wedges I got last year and always turn to when I want to dress up a little. I am linking everything for you to shop of course, so happy shopping! 😉
OTS Tops are one of my favorite styles. Especially in the summer – they really are my go to. And this cute OTS front tie top is from a small boutique that I stumble upon on Instagram. What I found to be such a fun coincidence is that the owner is also from Panama. When I learned that, I was so honored to be able to work together and bring her styles to y’all. I am linking the exact top below and I want to leave the link to Shop Maia is here for you to check out too. 🙂
Bamboo bags are also a summer favorite! There’s just something about the craftsmanship of a woven straw bag that draws me to them. I would always search and add them to my wishlist, but it wasn’t until this summer that I decided to get one. I love the one I picked out! The earrings I’m wearing here have also being on repeat. I got these beauties at World Market for under $20 – I’m linking them below too. 😉
Las blusas de estilo a los hombros me encantan, especialmente durante el verano! Esta blusa es de una pequeña boutique que encontré por Instagram. Y lo que me pareció tan chévere, es que la dueña también es de Panamá. Cuando me enteré, sentí muy honrada de poder trabajar con ella y poder compartir con ustedes estilos de su boutique, Shop Maia.
Las bolsas de bambú o tejidas también son mis favoritas este verano. Hay algo de la mano de obra que me atrae. Y aunque siempre he querido una, no fue hasta este verano que me deicidí comprarla. Me fascina la que escogí. Los aretes son otra prenda en mi look de hoy que he usada varias veces y lo que mas me gusta de estos es que costaron menos de $20. 😉
Happy Friday Eve! What plans do you have for the weekend? I think my weekend will be pretty low-key, since we have been doing quite a bit the last few weeks. I may even take a little break from Social Media, I think it’s needed from time to time. 😉 Palm Print is all the rave this season and this Palm Print Kimono goes perfect with a casual, dressy or even a swimsuit.
This gorgeous palm print kimono is from Betsy Boo’s Boutique. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably saw me share a jumpsuit by the same boutique. This and the jumpsuit are two pieces I can’t get enough of. So, you may see this piece styled differently, just be on the lookout. 🙂 As for the rest of my look, I thought I’d show off my new button cami, which goes with almost anything. And decided to pull out my peep toe booties, favorite pink earrings, jeans, watch and bamboo handbag. I’m linking all items below so you can get to shopping!
