This week has a summer theme and in today’s Friend Friday I’ll share my favorite summer trends and staples. But before we kick of Friend Friday, I have news to share!
Starting this weekend, Those Graces will begin to feature weekend posts focused on reviews and tutorials focused mostly on makeup and fashion. Throughout the summer, you’ll see special weekend posts including reviews on products from Urban Decay, JewelMint and more. I even have a few makeup tutorials planned. Posts during the week will remain the same: focused on fashion and beauty with a feminist twist.
This is your chance to let me know what you really want to see in terms of “how-to’s.” So if you’ve been dying to know more about lip liner or how to do your makeup for an interview, please leave a comment and let me know!
Top Five Summer Trends I’m Excited About
Since I’ve been focused on wedding planning and moving, I have only cracked open one style magazine this month and only know what’s going on in the fashion world through blogs and websites.
Dress via Zappos and wedges via Old Navy
Maxi Dresses are everywhere! In the past, I avoided long dresses because I thought that since I’m “short” I shouldn’t wear long dresses. Ladies, throw this rule out the window! I bought my first long dress a few weeks ago, and though it’s not a maxi, the trend did inspire me to try something new.
My favorite summer shoe is the wedge. To me, this shoe is so comfortable compared to the winter heel.
I try to wear lots of color in the summer. Currently I’m experimenting with purple, pink and green eye makeup I don’t usually wear. That being said, if you are wearing a colorful outfit, you should probably choose more neutral makeup.
Summer is a great time to relive childhood trends, which is why I adore cut off jean shorts à la Now and Then.
My last summer staple is going purse free and I try to carry as little as possible whenever I can.
