Summer Playlist Volume One + Trends for Summer

It's been awhile since I've done either of these things -- a playlist and Polyvore set in one post? Oh my.

I just did the Summer Obsession Tag on YouTube which got me thinking about my favorite summer songs. "The Boys of Summer" by the Ataris came to mind, which led me to a zillion other songs circa 2005-ish. I'm just going to leave this here. Click play, then keep scrolling for outfits.

I don't wear color. Ever. It's a bad habit that I'm trying to break, but for now, I'm going to share how I style my favorite shade for summertime.

 

black summer.

A few key pieces really help break up the darkness: a light wash jean or simple white tee can really make a huge difference when paired with black on black on black. I've also really been loving a pop of color on the lips to add just a hint of warmth to your face. Red is a great option, but a pinky nude can also give you a softer look. Other trends I'm loving for summertime are booties, fringe, circle shades, and boho style tops. And yes, you can do boho in black!

Which pieces from the above set are you loving?
