If you’ve ever experienced summer in the south, you know that words like hot, humid, sticky, and stifling are perfect adjectives. Summer purse necessities include sunscreen, bug spray, and a foldable fan. That being said, summer style has to be light, comfortable, breathable, and of course…stylish. That’s what inspired this summer style post. We have put together a few casual and dressy looks with corresponding jewelry to help inspire your summer wardrobe.
Going for a stroll on the boardwalk or out shopping in your favorite downtown area? These dresses are perfect for that! Dresses are a summer staple, and make getting dressed and out the door a breeze. Throw a dress on, add some jewelry, and pop on a pair of shoes and you’re ready for the day.
This pink and white tunic dress would also make the perfect coverup at the beach or pool! We don’t advise wearing jewelry on the beach but if you are just out and about this pink pearl and shell pendant and starfish engraved cuff are a great way to dress up your look.

Pearls provide a great contrast to this colored dress. Add a double strand of pearls with a monogram pendant with the matching bracelet or skip the pearls and go for a longer monogram disk pendant necklace.

Let’s face it, wedding season is every season, summer included. Whether you have an indoor or outdoor wedding to attend, stay cool and stylish with a halter dress. Add your favorite wedges or heels and you’re wedding ready!
This Carolina blue dress is beautiful on its own but we had to add a little sparkle. Because of the neckline, you could do without a necklace but if you wanted to wear one, we recommend one that is longer in length. The stations necklace with a monogrammed pendant pictured is a good example. We love the addition of the earrings and the cuff as they add a nice touch without taking away from the dress.

Last, but certainly not least is a great date night outfit! We’ll be the first to admit that we love a LBD but in the summer we opt for lighter colors. This LWD is perfect for date night and reflects the sun which will help keep you from roasting as you go to and from your date night destination. If heels aren’t your cup of tea, try opting for a fun colorful pair of flats like the ones pictured.
We think of a white dress as a blank canvas. We paired our nautical inspired jewelry with a pearl necklace for a fun, yet sophisticated pop of color. The blue and white striped tassel flats are just the icing on the cake!
