Hot Summer Looks

By Mayra, age 17, California

Summer is my favorite time of the year! I get to come up with millions of excuses to hit the mall and shop! Today I have the pleasure of showing you some cute pieces from and that are perfect for a day out shopping, summer love hunting, or even hitting the beach!


Fitted Artist Dress w Mock Vest ~ $27.00

This dress with its super cute vest can be played up with tons of accessories, allowing the blue to really stand out. It's perfect for a night out at the beach with the girls, or even with your summer love. Who knows? The possibilities are endless!

Plaid Fitted Gold Button Vest ~ $22.00

I really like this vest because, unlike others, it has patterns and colors you can accessorize it with. You can wear it with a cute skirt for something more formal, or you can pair it up with some cute flattering skinny jeans for a day out at the mall.

2pc Slouchy Oversized Pocket Top ~ $22.00

This oversized pocket top is flirty, cute, and very sassy. Perfect for a night out at the movies or even out bowling!

Sweetheart Gathered Halter Sun Dress ~ $28.00

This hot pink dress (shirt not included) can be worn with a shirt like the ones below, or if you're going out in the sun it can also be worn by itself.

Unique Scoop Neck Knit Sweater Dress ~ $26.00

If you like to party, this dress is perfect because it's classy and not as revealing as others. It's very casual when worn without accessories, but it can be played up with cute necklaces to add sassiness!
