Is it me or doesn’t it feel like yesterday when I was swooning over Spring Trends?? LOL. Time does fly and this week for FBFF we’re talking about our favorite summer trends. Though there isn’t much difference in Spring and Summer down here in Florida, it doesn’t stop me from finding even more things to incorporate into my wardrobe (and beauty stash!) So without further a due, here are my favorite Summer Trends!
50’s Inspired Swimsuits
When the weather started getting hotter, I was on the hunt for a new swimsuit as I surfed the net, I kept seeing these one piece swimsuits that were too cute! I loved the fact that these styles took me back to a time when curves were celebrated! I also think for those of us who are in that in-between stage that the 30’s bring, it’s a great fashion item for the summer! We don’t look like were in are teens and we don’t look like grandma’s in them either, so they’re perfect!
I’ve been digging this trend since Spring and I finally got one! Whoo hoo! I love it for the summer because it not only goes perfectly with those swimsuits I love, it keeps you protected from the sun. I wore my hat on the beach during Memorial Day Weekend and I loved that fact that it not only kept my hair in place, but it completely kept the sun out of my face. Stylish and protective? Yes please!
Bright Lip Color
With Spring it was all about the eyes but now bold lip color is hot right now! Since I stepped out of my safe lip color box, I’m ready to run out and try it myself. The next color I’m going to get, is this color that I saw at the Rachel Roy Event I went to with my girls Kara and Kirsten last Saturday. I’m still swooning over this beautiful coral color! And with Vahni’s review of the Maybelline clear lip liner, I’m totally on the bold lip color train!

Curly, No Fuss Hair
If you know me by now this trend was definitely a no brainer! This summer is the perfect time to embrace these natural curls of mine! Regardless of hair type though, letting go of the flat iron and letting your hair do it’s curly thing is a hot trend this summer, giving us curly girls a little break to enjoy those summer BBQ’s and beach outings!
For the life of me I can’t recreate this hair style! LOL
70’s Inspired Fashion
One of my absolute favorite fashion trends of that era were flare pants and I’m glad that along with a few other 70’s inspired threads are in this summer! Long, flowy maxi dresses, bold colors and prints, big glamorous sunnies, beautiful floppy hats – I love it all! So glad this style came back around (because I wasn’t around to rock them the first time! LOL)
