What To Wear: Summer Parties

June 11, 2019

This week felt like the official kick off to summer. Kids got out of school, foggy days actually turned into warm sunny days and suddenly everyone is having a party or barbecue. It got me rifling through my wardrobe (and doing a bit of shopping) to put a few looks together for some casual gatherings and dressier shindigs.

Beachside Breezy

I love a summer evening by the beach especially at the new Miramar hotel in Santa Barbara. We have a friend’s birthday dinner at Caruso’s coming up and I’m excited to get dressed up for an adult only night by the beach. 

Backyard Bash

Whether it’s a small group for dinner or an all out party, a backyard bash always has a laidback vibe so I try to pick pieces that reflect that. And before you opt for heels, ask the host if you’ll be on grass. 

Pool Party

We don’t have a pool, but I have strong feelings about anyone who does is obligated to throw at least one summer pool party. Am I right? I’ll bring the hot dogs and popsicles.
