Guess who’s ready for summer? I am ! I think we can all agree that being hit with a little extra Vitamin D for a few months is not something to complain about. Being the fashion lover that I am, I personally love this season because shorts, swimsuits, bright colors, and straw accessories are favorites, and I get to play around with the items in my closet. However, as every season comes swooping in, so do their attached trends. I love to shop smart, it’s something that I’ve done since I received my first paycheck — and this is why I’m so excited to work with JCPenney this summer to give you a one stop shop shopping destination to get all those summer musts at reasonable prices.
This summer I decided to have the full summer experience — that includes activities such as a picnic, touristing around the San Diego area, hitting the pool, and visiting the beach and its neighboring neighborhoods. I always like to look on point so as a staple for this summer, I decided to shop “nautical”. You know, that sail inspired look that usually accentuates stripes as a pattern and runs along the red, white, and blue color scheme. The beauty of the nautical look is that it is such a classic and it never goes out of style –which in return makes you a smart shopper. I drove to my local JCPenney because I knew they ran with the most on trend styles, plus I would get more for my money — and who doesn’t love that?
I was amazed at all the chic and classic items from brands like Liz Claiborne, Ambrielle, a.n.a, and Project Runway! As I was shopping around, I found a great pair of shorts from a.n.a that were of such great quality. I decided to shop the khaki and the red to show a versatile nautical look that can work when you want a pop of color or want to go a neutral route. The pictured striped top from Liz Claiborne can be either a tee or a tunic depending on your outfit fave, and I swear you guys, it has the softest texture. I chose to tuck it in and create a side knot as well to show you two ways in which it can be worn.
I decided to top off the outfit with a few summer on-trend accessories! This straw inspired visor for example is such a chic summer addition for the classic nautical look. It is perfect for coverage from those harmful rays while still making a stylish statement. I decided to go with a Libby Edelman beige belt to finish off the look with a subtle touch. Add some white sneaks for sharpness or a summer slip-on and you’re good to go!
I know we all have busy schedules and from time to time it gets hard to schedule a shopping sesh or even a spree. But imagine being able to find everything at one store.
