If there’s anything I love in life, vivid colors are definitely in my Top 5. Unfortunately, I don’t embrace this love as much as I should. To kick off the summer right, I splurged a little bit and made my way to Forever 21 and TJMaxx to stock up on some goodies.
On the first official day of Summer, I had a busy morning at my internship, then headed straight to work at Atlanta Activewear until 8pm and immediately went on a date with the BF. With this hectic schedule, I knew I needed to wear something light and breezy without being too revealing for the office. So, I sported my new purple, hi-lo dress from Forever. It’s definitely a good find, and it’s super comfy too! And of course, none of my outfits are complete without gold accents.
I decided to put my J.Crew gold belt with the dress in order to cut the color a little bit. I added my new tan woven clutch from Forever (one of my newest obsessions!) to add another element to the ensemble. The gold flower studs are from the Lauren Conrad Collection at Kohl’s (on sale for $7!!!). As for the arm candy, I stuck with my trusty Michael, David, and Kate trio. I thought the accessories were enough to accent the outfit, without overcoming it…
As much as I love Atlanta during the Summer, the heat can kill me sometimes. Lucky for me, I work at an activewear shop where I can pass off wearing spandex and lime green bras underneath see-through tops. I added my new Kelly green cardi from TJMaxx to the leggings/t-shirt combo. It’s light enough to wear in the hot sun, but essential in any overly-air conditioned building. I threw on my gold Alexis Bittar bracelet,Sam Edelman gladiators and chevron-printed Sweatyband and I was ready for the day! Fitness fashion at its finest.
