It has been a minute since I’ve done a five looks I’m lusting for post, and I knew August would be the perfect month to bring those back on the blog. After a month of self-care content and how to achieve your goals with vision boards, I want to keep August fun and fresh!
Make sure to share in the comment what summer trends you’ve been loving so far, or if you’re more excited for fall fashion coming up here in the next few months?! Also, if you were one of the MILLIONS of bloggers who talked about the Nordstrom sale, be sure to let me know what items you picked up that you would recommend to a friend.
Over-sized tops like this have been a staple for me all summer long, and I don’t think August will be any different! I love that you can easily wear this to work, but you can also style this casually with denim or shorts. I’m also loving the statement earrings that have been everywhere this summer, but I haven’t taken the plunge to buy them myself.
Cold-shoulder tops + chunky, strap sandals = the perfect outfit combination for August. I have also been loving the knotted-top trend that I’ve been seeing all over in stores and with other bloggers recently. It’s a simple detail that can transform a plain T-Shirt. I need more cold-shoulder tops in my closet because pretty soon I’ll be busting out my fall sweaters, and will have to say goodbye to my summer clothes for the season.
Ruffle sleeves and bold, embroidered patterns have been catching my eye all summer long. This dress is slaying the summer trend game with the off-the-shoulder trend, floral embroidered trend and ruffled sleeve trend. At first, I wasn’t sure how much I would like this, but after seeing it more and more, I’m definitely loving it for the end of summer. This dress instantly makes me want to take a vacation to the Caribbean, and makes me wish summer would never end. What are your thoughts on ruffled sleeves and bold embroidered patterns?
These romper dresses are EVERYWHERE and I’m not mad about it. Although I don’t think I could ever pull off this outfit, I love seeing other bloggers and influencers style it. The outfit is partly casual because of the romper, but the long “dress” in the back would make me feel like a movie star. Am I the only one who feels this way? Have you tried on one of these yet? TBH they seem rather intimidating, so I haven’t, but I’m starting to think I need to try one before summer’s over! So if you have any store recommendations, leave a comment below!
You know how I’m always throwing in a wild card outfit for these posts? Well, here’s my August wild card. You all know I love my white T-Shirts and cute booties, but that pinafore is quite overwhelming for me. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love the detail and that it’s denim, but I don’t think it would be anything I could pull off. It also takes me back to the 90s when I owned one pair of overalls that made me feel so cool. Do you own overalls? Are you liking that this trend is coming back? Let me know in the comments.
