3 Ways to Think Outside the Box with 3 Summer Staples

Jun 29, 2015

Remember back when it was chilly and still spring, back when you'd stand in front of your kitchen window with a hot cup of tea, willing the last of the frost to melt with your narrowed eyes? As you moved the hot cup from hand to hand, you'd plan all the beautiful outfits you'd zip up and smooth down once the days got warmer and longer, imagining all the white prairie dresses and cheeky bralette tops.

But now that we're in it- and preparing to say goodbye to June no less!- we've found ourselves in the usual ruts. White dress? Check. Pair it with the gladiator sandals. High waist shorts? Check, and toss a crop top over 'em. Floppy hat? Yep, and don't forget to match it with a shift dress.

Tried and true and still lovely, if not a little...repetitive. And while me and you both love a classic formula, it's fun to roll up your sleeves every once in a while and reinvent the wheel. That's exactly what I did today with Grayson Shop, working together to take your three summer staples (bohemian wide leg trousers, open backed tank top, and a striped maxi) and played and tinkered with them until we found a way to give them new life.

The results? Pretty dang transformative looks that are every bit as fun.

It's a balmy, summer night out, so grab your honey and join in on your neighborhood's Wine Walk to beat the heat in your apartment. Stroll underneath the lamp lights of your familiar streets and pop into boutiques and book stores that are changed into wine stations, sampling your way down the white wine list as you chat with shopkeepers. To keep that humidity at bay, dress up in an eye-catching vintage maxi, and play up it's popsicle-like colors by adding more hues to the mix. Pick caramel colored sandals and let your purse bring in a playful pop to the outfit.

Forgo the usual cup of coffee and try something a little different. Go to a small sixteen-seater Asian Tea House and busy yourself with the wall-to-ceiling selection of tea tins. Maybe you're in a spiced orange and almond type of mood? Or maybe you have a yen for blackcurrent? Whatever your tastes, you'll look wonderfully chic in your minimal-with-a-twist look. Take a vintage polka dot skirt and pair it with a white blouse to give yourself a neutral base. Then have fun with the accessories by choosing a handmade leather bucket bag and clunky flatform sandals to give your look an urban feel. Add in a straw hat for some sweetness and you have your perfect Wednesday outfit.
