14 Fredericksburg Parent and Family • July 2018 If you are anything like me, I spend most of the colder months huddled under blankets, layered in all the clothing I own, and wishing for warm weather. Well, warm weather is here and it's glorious. The sun is out, pools are open, the humidity is back…it's time to talk about summer style. Here are six summer all stars, to help you turn up the heat in your wardrobe. ROMPERS - First rule of rompers, they must be easy to get off for bathroom emergencies. Look for ones that aren't fussy or hard to get on. Be careful of ones made of rayon…in my experience these shrink up to an inappropriate shortness. Check T.J.Maxx, H&M and Francesca's for inexpensive ones. My absolute favorites are by Yumi Kim; they are pricey but worth it. SHORTS - I prefer skirts to shorts. But, I do have a few that I love. American Eagle makes shorts that fit well. Express and Loft are other good places for shorts. I also love Celebrity Pink jean shorts. Find them at T.J.Maxx or on Amazon. Try a short that has a 3-4" inseam for a good fit without being too short or too long. DRESSES AND SKIRTS - A no brainer really. But, I have a secret for what to wear UNDER your dresses and skirts to avoid the dreaded thigh rub. Jockey makes something called "Skimmies". Look for them on Amazon or at Kohl's. Not only do they work as light weight shape wear, but they also prevent thigh rub! Brilliant. SANDALS - For summer, bright colors are in. Look for sandals that offer a pop of color, maybe yellow, pink or cobalt blue! Be sure to have at least one pair of nude sandals in your closet. I love my Sam Edelman lace up sandals. They go with everything. KIMONO- These light weight layers are perfect for summer. Pair them with a tank or tee, shorts and sandals. Easy, breezy summer style. The one I am wearing is from Target but check Amazon, too! BRIGHT ACCESSORIES - I love to add a pop of color with brightly col- ored clutches or earrings, especially in the summer. Check out Nickel and Suede for my favorite earrings, or Bauble Bar (Target carries one of their lines) for more fun options. My favorite Yumi Kim romper. Cole Haan clutch and Sam Edelman heels all from ThredUP.
