Summer Styling!

Most people know Nicky Hilton as a certain girl's sister but I think that she's more than that. I can't imagine how horrible it would be to be known to the world as "so-and-so" sisters. Ugh. It's hard enough to be known as the little sister in high school. That's never happened to me but I hear my sister compain about it often enough. :)

Today I was inspired. I have never done something exactly like this before but I thought I'd give it a shot. It kind of a just a long ramble about what I'm wearing this summer. If you're interested: read on! If not...then that's fine too.

I was fascinated with this outfit. Jean jackets are perfect for summer because they're relatively light-weight. I know that a lot of people are saying, "It's summer. You don't need a jacket!" Well, in the summer sometimes you go to the movies into an air-conditioned room. And sometimes people air-condition a room a little too well! :)

So in the summer, light layers are not necessarily a bad thing. :) Or at least where I live it doesn't get suuuper hot. Not until August at least. Then I love how her scarf and shoes are in the same color pallete. They play off each other and they bring the entire outfit together.

 I honestly don't think that the outfit would've been as wonderful. I think the details are so important.
Okay. Next outfit. Its similar but different. :) In my mind these outfits kind of go together because she's wearing the same glasses and the same shoes. Random note: I heart that Alexander McQueen scarf. So gorgeous!

The only thing I don't like about this outfit is the leather jacket. A cardigan would be just as cute--and less hot. Wearing a  leather jacket in summer weather is like walking around with a sauna attached to your body.

Anway, now to focus on the plus-side of this outfit. Leggings are better for the summer because they breathe a lot more than traditional jeans and again they're lightweight. They aren't bulky at all. Great choice for summer if you're going out at night.

I have to talk about her Birkin bag. Doesn't everyone love a good Birkin bag? Sigh. Life goal: get a Birkin bag. And then take it everywhere with me. :)

[isn't that puppy adorable? :) aww...]

Oh, side note! I think this is the coolest thing. I just found about this website about two days ago. Giveaway Scout is this website that catalouges a ton of blog giveaways.
