Summertime Styling Inspiration: Beach Chic

Summer is officially here and with it brings trips to the shore.

It's little touches like breezy prints, scalloped bottom skirts and tops, vibrant hi-lows and lightweight lace that make beach style chic. Bring along a sundress rather than a cover up and gold hoops to take you into a stylish evening of food and laughter with friends.

Have a lovely summer day everyone!
