Denim summer favorites |

Hey BBs!!

Summer is officially here!

I hope you had the best Memorial weekend ever!! Mine was filled with food, beer, food, and well, more food. Between the cookouts we attended, the funnel cakes from the carnival, and the beer tent, I feel like I consumed enough calories to keep me full for a lifetime. It was a busy weekend full of seeing family and friends, and it was a total blast, but I must admit that I’m partied out and ready to get back to the grind!

I wanted to share with you one of my new favorite summer denim looks that I’ve been wearing lately, as seen on my Instagram! I love how versatile denim is. Whether I’m wearing a denim romper, dress or shorts, the options are endless with mixing and matching accessories! Denim is timeless and will literally NEVER go out of style. Score.

Denim Romper

Denim Sun Dress

My rule of thumb: Add a hat to any dress to add a summery touch. This cute denim dress is fun, flirty and the right choice for those long, summer nights.

High Waisted Denim + White Denim Shorts

Denim summer favorites |

I bought two pairs of high-waisted ripped shorts this spring at American Eagle. For the first denim pair, I paired it with a bare-shoulder top tucked in. I am so in love with this boho pattern of this top, and the huge pockets of the shorts! Some people hate the high waisted trend, but I think it was a gift from God that it’s back in style from the 90s.
