3 Easy & Effortless Looks for Summer

This post was sponsored by Target

Summer fashion, for me, is all about easy, effortless style. The last thing I feel like doing when the temperatures are reaching 105+ degrees is fuss about what I am wearing. However, with that being said, I certainly don't skimp on my outfits. It's all about spending those extra 5 minutes to put together a look with summer basics to create the perfect, easy, effortless look for whatever event you have going on that day.

Target is always a go-to for me. It's the perfect place to pick up the pieces needed to put together your perfect summer look, whether you are going to a BBQ or brunch with some girlfriends. Being able to create endless looks with a few simple pieces (or closet staples) is what fashion should be all about. I've put together 3 looks for summer using some of my favorite pieces from Target.


Pool Party


This would be a look I'd wear to a low-key pool party. I'm not a huge fan of swimming. Never have been. But I'm certainly not counting it out, especially in the Phoenix heat, so I like to wear something that can easily be taken off and put back on without too much fuss. The perfect piece for just that: a romper (shocking, I know). 

I am also looooving these high-neck bikini tops that are available lately. The crochet neckline on this one creates the perfect amount of interest and makes this look the perfect pool party go-to. 

Makeup is always a struggle for me in the summer. It's never something I want to layer on because it's just going to melt off. But I'm someone who needs some coverage - even at a pool party (I know, annoying) - and since I'm going to be putting it on you know I am making sure it includes SPF. This Laneige BB Cushion with SPF 50+ is ah-mazing. For me, it's a little pricey (I'm super cheap when it comes to makeup), but I'm not kidding when I say it's worth it. It's light but buildable and seriously the best summer "foundation" I've found. 



Brunch


Brunch with the girls (or just brunch in general...more mimosas please!) is always fun and quite possibly my favorite weekend activity. Since patio brunches are no longer an option during the summer, we take brunch inside...where the air is always set to freezing. So while being outside in a long-sleeve chambray shirt is not ideal, it's the perfect lightweight layer to wear to brunch. 

I wasn't 100% sold on this pink ruffle skirt when I saw it, but I thought it would be a fun piece to try on and I am so glad I did! It's definitely more on the girly side for me, but I absolutely love it. It's the perfect length, lightweight and I imagine the style options to be endless, dressed both up and down. 



BBQ


And finally, the good ol' classic summer BBQ...and some more chambray. :) This chambray dress is the epitome of easy, and I'm already living in it. It's a no-fuss piece that can be styled so many different ways. 

I paired it with my white sneakers and my white denim jacket (a definite summer necessity) for the perfect laid-back BBQ look.

Sleeveless Tux Dress


Red Sleeveless Dress c/o Banana Republic | Black Heels old (Similar Here) | Black Aviator Sunglasses | Clutch old (Similar Here

This sleeveless tuxedo dress from Banana Republic is seriously what my work wardrobe dreams are made of. It is quite possibly the best fitting dress I have ever owned and the color just demands attention. In real life, my work wardrobe struggles a bit. It's hard to be motivated to dress for an office job at 7:00am, it's kind of embarrassing actually. If I could just have a wardrobe stacked full of this dress for work, I would be a seriously happy girl...anything that fits this well and requires little to no effort is all I strive for in the mornings. 

Did you all have a good weekend? Brand and I didn't do too much other than hung out with some friends Saturday night for a bit. It was a low-key night, but a lot of fun. That was really all our excitement. 

Hope you all have a great start to your week!
