Summer Fashion Series

(Wearing the same skirt in the Spring Fashion Series.  Seriously love this skirt!)

It's a challenge to come up with outfits every day.  I want to look presentable, but want to be comfortable at the same time.  I had an idea to ask other people to help me come up with a collection of outfits that you would wear on a typical/normal day.  Out to run errands, a casual day at the office, lunch with a friend, your child's soccer game...whatever it is that you do!  So here are 14 incredible ladies who are sharing some summer outfits with you.  (And I put them in categories to help you when you're searching through your own wardrobe!)


I am a huge fan of a great pattern.  Stripes, polka dots, and florals allow an outfit to stand alone in cuteness.



These ladies demonstrate this trend so well, and made me realize that I need more bright colored pieces in my wardrobe.



Ohhh maxi skirts and dresses.  I love these things so much.  They are perfect for a warm summer day.



Blue is such a beautiful summer color and looks amazing on everyone!



How amazing do these ladies look in white?  White is super hot this summer and I'm so glad it is, because I love it!


I think all these ladies look incredible and their outfits are spot on.  I hope you now have some ideas to carry you through the season!  Make sure to go visit these ladies for more outfit inspiration.

If you would like to be part of my Fall Fashion Series, please send me an email (ashanderson10@gmail.com) with the Subject Line:  Fall Series.  You don't have to send me the picture now, just an email.  You can definitely participate in the Fall Series even if you were featured in this one or previous ones.  And no, you don't have to be a blogger to participate!


What is your favorite summer fashion trend?

Fun! Loving all the inspiration! And adore your cute bicycle pictures!

RoselyC said...

Great looks. I really want a bike like yours.Is it really comfortable to wear a skirt or dress while on a bike? I'm curious because I have never tried it. I always feel I'll show too much, if you know what I mean.

Jodi said...

This is such a great idea! How fun to involve other ladies too... lots of good summer ideas!

Hi Ashley. I hadn't been here in a while but I love this post. Your Outfit and especially your two poses by the bicycle are PERFECTION! You look adorable, Hot Mamma!!

I am also loving this feature and will contact you cause I am interested to participate for Fall. Thanks, Ada. =)

Rachel said...

I don't think I've ever been brave enough to ride a bike while wearing a skirt. I guess that's how they did it back in the day, though! I do think your purple skirt is very pretty.

Amanda Cobb said...

How are you riding a bike while wearing a skirt? I never did manage that trick. At least not as gracefully-looking as you did in your pictures.

Thanks for including me in the summer series! :)

helen said...

these are amazing outfits. i loveee the maxi dresses/skirts. they've recently begun to make their way into my closet, and now they're some of my favorites! :)

Lauren ONeill said...
