Hey y’all!! I am Brittany from KingdomofSequins and today I am taking over Kaitlyn’s blog!! I will be sharing my passion for fashion and some tips on summer essentials. Kaitlyn will be taking over the KingdomofSequins today and sharing her own fashion tips.
With summer heating up, I thought today I’d share my personal go to summer staples. For instance, I love white jeans with a cute top or I am obsessed with the over-the-shoulder look right now. I have my favorites and each year I build on what I like. In past years, I just wanted to have everything but now my motto is most definitely more quality over quantity. There are essential pieces you should try to have in your wardrobe for each season. These are pieces that are on trend for summer and will provide a basic foundation for your summer wardrobe. With statement necklaces and accessories, you could wear the same dress four times and have a different look each time. I am sharing my go-to essential pieces for summer time.
Maxi Dress – There’s a reason the maxi is one of my favorite summer staples. They’re universally flattering, cool (in more ways than one!) and ridiculously comfortable. I’d say that’s winning in the most fashionable sense. If you’re lucky enough to have a relaxed dress code at work, go for one that’s comfy yet flattering. If you live in a warmer part of the country like I do, spaghetti straps are your friend. I picked up this maxi dress from TJ Maxx and I am obsessed with the bright color.

I purchased this blazer from Charlotte Russe (sold out) and it is perfect for work.
Blazers: Enjoy your day to day attire with a bright colorful blazer to achieve such a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Wear it with neutral, simple pieces and let the blazer shine. A piece of blazer in leopard, floral, tribal, paisley, or other prints work perfectly with any outfit you wish to wear. Pair it with pieces in solid colors or do print matching accordingly. My favorite is a cute blazer with cut off shorts.

Over-the-shoulder tops: While this summer trend may not exactly be fit for the workplace, it’s a weekend and after-hours staple this season. By showing off your neckline and shoulders, an off-the-shoulder top is sexy and flirty while still leaving enough to the imagination. Don’t go too tight with this trend: The looser, bohemian look is the way to go. Whether you’re headed to a concert, brunch with the girls or just a day of shopping it is the perfect summer top.
For the weekend, this top looks best with denim or more casual bottoms, but some sexier and more tailored styles look equally amazing with a pair of trousers or date-night mini. Go for everything from silk to cotton, dramatic shaped sleeves to short eyelet ruffles.

Striped dress: A casual striped t-shirt dress is the perfect summer staple. Great for a day of errands or lunch with friends. Pair with cute summer sandals or a fedora for a day outside. This dress paired with a military style vest adds a casual feel to such a simple staple.
