When I was a kid, I always fantasized about being whisked away to an exotic destination. The beaches at Makena State Park in Hawaii are pretty close to that! With golden shorelines and brilliant aqua blue water, this hot spot in Maui is a dreamer’s paradise!

Hi guys, hope all is well! I still have a ton of images from Hawaii to post. So here ya go. 6ish months too late but better now then never! It’s a constant work-in-progress but I plan to very slowly but surely share them with you all. 🙂

Tropical florals and lush greenery background are pretty much ubiquitous in Hawaii. These pictures are fun because they make it appear as if I’m in the jungle. However, they were actually taken only a few steps from the front door of the condo in which I was staying at. This just goes to show that you really don’t have to venture far to get lost in the beauty of nature. ~b

Summer Day in Charleston

Dress – Forever 21 / Purse – Kate Spade / Flip Flops – Walmart / Glasses – Walmart

Happy Tuesday, guys! Yesterday I drove down to Charleston with some family and friends for a mini day trip. So I thought what better idea then to share some photos from my last visit in the summertime!

Charleston, South Carolina is a super popular destination. Beloved by both tourists and locals, it’s well-known for its rich culture and historic charm. Exploring the historic district is a must-have and the best way to fully experience the city. Located in downtown, the South of Broad neighborhood is home to some of the most beautiful residential architecture. My absolute favorite is this posh mansion overlooking White Point Garden! It’s the perfect balance of classic and contemporary. Nearby these fabulous estates is the famous battery. It’s a nice place to take a stroll and catch a light breeze in the hot humidity. Below are some of my top pics from my summer trip, I’ll also be posting my pictures from my winter trip in a later blog post. As always, thanks for stopping by – until next time!  🙂 ~b

Flower Crowns + Hippie Fashion

Tank Top – Charlotte Russe / Shorts – Garage / Sandals – DSW

Summer is the season of musical festivals! It’s the perfect place to dress like a hippie and wear flower crowns. Here’s a simple outfit idea for these fun social gatherings. I went for the girl next door kind-of-look. Instead of wearing a white tee and jeans – I went with a sheer white tank top and distressed demin shorts. I dressed the simple look up with a few accessories. Overall, I think this a great easy look to replicate for hot summer concerts. It’s something you probably own in your own closet – making it super inexpensive.  I also just crafted the flower crown myself ( I watched a youtube tutorial on how to make it) . Anyhow thanks for reading this post! Till next time. ~bBeInspireful - Hippie10BeInspireful - Hippie11.jpg

 

Crop Top + High Waisted Shorts

Correct me if I’m wrong…but the unofficial summer time uniform consists of crop tops & high waisted shorts. It’s really no surprise that demin shorts are the staples of summer fashion. The right pair can accentuate your legs and also make your behind look good (which is always a plus – ha!). The one I am wearing are actually from Abercrombie’s kid section (petite people problems). They are great because they hide my tummy. With more coverage around the waist, pairing it with a crop top seems like the natural fit. Together this combo is perfect for the effortlessly cool gal. It’s a laid-back kind of outfit that beats the summer heat in style! ~bBeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts10BeInspireful - Highwaisted Shorts12

Nature + Floral Skirt Outfit

Spending some time outdoors is essential for a perfect day in the summer for me. I love the warmer climate and dressing for it (one of the many reasons why I moved to the South). As you already know, I am a big fan of dresses but skirts are also up there as well. With so many variations in prints and styles – I own a handful of them. This A-line floral skirt is one of my favorite for the summer! It buttons up in the front and has pockets, so it’s cute and functional. I paired it with a plain yellow top so there wouldn’t be a clash in patterns. I think this girly outfit would be great for the first day of school! It’s not super dressy and it will keep you cool throughout the day. Anyhow, I hope this post helps spark some outfit ideas! ~bBeInspireful - Nature + Floral Outfit4

Summer Glow Outfit

Wet Seal Eyelet Dress – $8 // Kohl’s Beige Sandals – $10 // BaubleBar Necklace

Summer has a way of bringing out the natural glow in all of us. Maybe it’s the sun kiss tans or the carefree vibe that permeates the air but it is easily one of my favorite seasons.  The next few blog posts will be pictures from my summers in Ohio featuring some cute outfits (of course!). Cornfields, country back roads, and sunshine are all quintessential to my small hometown and I can’t wait to share parts of it  with you guys!BeInspireful - Summer Glow 11BeInspireful - Summer Glow 10For the first pictures in the series, I am wearing a cream eyelet dress. It’s very simple but also charming and flattering. In the summer time you can easily look put-together by throwing on a basic dress. You don’t have to be fussy about matching bottoms, making it an easy go-to option.  Also, look for white and cream colors so you can show off your glowing tan! To finish off my outfit, I just wore some beige sandals and a layered necklace. Uncomplicated accessories put more emphasis on the dress and the individual wearing it!BeInspireful - Summer Glow 12

All in all, I love this effortless ensemble because it has a touch of femininity. It’s soft and sweet – perfect for any summer day. ~b
