Color Love: Hot Pink & Blush

With the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale taking up literally the entirety of the blogosphere, I've almost forgotten that it's, unfortunately, still 100 degrees outside - until at least October. While I'm ready for the cozy layer of fall, I've been loving the bright colors of summer! One of my favorite color combos to wear this summer has been hot pink and blush, it's such a fun and girly combo - perfect for the warmer months!
How to wear and style hot pink and blush fashion this summer

Wearing the same color in different shades can be tricky. To pull it off without clashing, wear a simple, solid, blush dress and pair it with hot pink accessories and fun jewelry. Another great way to incorporate it into your wardrobe is color blocking! A light pink skirt and bold hot pink top totally works if the rest of your outfit stays pretty neutral.

See some more of my favorite pink picks in the widget below! 

P.S. I bet a lot of these will be on sale soon as more fall stuff comes to the store. Perfect for us southern girls who will be staying cool well into fall!

Heat Wave

Happy Tuesday y'all! Do you ever get to a point in the summer where the thought of actually putting together an outfit is too daunting a task? That's how I've been feeling lately with the insane heat (111!) and humidity here in Dallas. Why put together an outfit when I'm just going to feel miserable, sweaty and gross in a few hours time? TMI, right? I've basically been living in t-shirts and shorts which isn't very blogger-like, I know. I did, however, surprise myself with how much I like this romper from Buddy Love (it's seriously soft you guys). 

Off the Shoulders

Hello ya'll! I know I don't normally post on the weekends but I wore this outfit to brunch yesterday with some blogger buds and I just HAD to share. I'll admit I wasn't really on board with the "off the shoulder" trend for a while, but I've finally caved. I loved how breezy and flow-y it looked on other people, but I just didn't think I could pull it off.

Instagram Lately... + NSale Favorites

I meant to have a new outfit post up for ya'll today but I've been feeling a little under the weather this week. Not to mention my usual photographer has been busy catching Pokemon (and I admittedly went with him some too...). 

Instagram is by far my favorite social media outlet, I just love scrolling through endless eye candy of pretty things and outfits, which is why Instagram update blog posts are some of my favorite to read. Which is why I also love posting these occasionally too! Check out all the details from some of my favorite 'Grams below! 

Sometimes you just have to treat yourself, right? A macaron shop right next to the nail salon that serves wine is a very dangerous thing. Sunglasses

This has basically been me every weekend all summer.

Shopbop Summer Sale (Under $200!)

This summer has seriously gone by super fast for me! I can't believe it's already time to be thinking about fall (although, lets be real, in Dallas we've still got quite a while). It's always a little bittersweet half way through the summer when all the bright, fun trends go on sale. 

Before you put away the bikini and grab your sweaters, be sure to check out Shopbop's summer sale for some great deals on summer essentials! I've rounded up some of my favorite breezy styles to help you get through the dog days of summer! 

Summertime Blues + News

If you follow me on  Instagram, you may have seen little bit of this...but, I'm super excited to introduce my best friend/current roommate here in Dallas! Running a blog and working full time can be super hectic, and I know I've been a little sporadic posting, which is why I asked Olivia to join and contribute to Champagne and City Lights. Plus now I get to play photographer occasionally, which is always fun! Hopefully we'll be back to posting regularly again, and I can't wait to share all of our antics with you guys!
