Summer Fashion by Ashley

i have a great appreciation for fashion, but my implementation seems to fall short...often. therefore, i think ashley from flats to flip flops is much more qualified to tell you what the top summer must-haves are...

Hi everyone!  My name is Ashley and I blog over at flats to flip flops!

I blog about fashion, faith, and philanthropy.  Modest fashion, mommy moments and giving back are the theme over at my place!

I am so excited to be guest posting for Carlia today!  I am sure you guys know this(cuz you totally read her blog), but she is A-MAZ-ING!  Seriously blessed the day I found her and her blog!
Carlia asked me to let you guys in on my top fashion picks for summer!
So here goes, a little Summer Lovin!

Summer Pics 2012

1.  Graphic Tee's

What says summer like a graphic tee?  I daresay nothing does!  Comfy yet stylish and a great way to show off your personality.

2. Retro Sunglasses
Truth be told, I rarely spend over $10 for sunglasses. But I love the retro-y feel these sunglasses have.  And if you are spending as much time as I am outside in the summer, a great pair of sunglasses is a must!
(Mango oversized sunglasses£20 -

3.  Head Wraps
I do not like doing my hair in the summer.  Mostly because I am lazy, but also because I am usually outside in the heat and need my hair off my neck.  Head wraps, bandanna's, or cute headbands are a great way to make your ponytail not so boring! 
(Forever Young Head Wrap$18 -

4.  Bright Colored Sandals
You know this girl loves her flip flops, but there is definitely something to be said for a pair of "nicer" sandals.  I also love adding a pop of color to a plainer outfit with colored sandals! 
(Bamboo sandals$21 -

5. Bright Maxi Skirt
A maxi skirt is like wearing your pj's all day long. All the comfort, but none of the weird stares!  Love maxi skirts and I especially love this one with a chevron print.  Which is all the rage right now!
 (The Annabelle Chevron Maxi Maxine, XS, S, M, L$43 -

6.  Over the Body Tote
These are the perfect bags for a mom on the go!  Sling this puppy over your body and you have 2 free hands, and all your essentials.  I especially love this one, because its pink.  Such a fun color for summer!  
(Messenger bag£25 -

What are some of your must-have's this summer?  I'd love to hear and have you stop by my place at flats to flip flops sometime!
Thanks again Carlia for inviting me over today!

great post! my problem is being the same weight as I was pre-pregnancy but not fitting into my clothes or looking the same in my clothes. We need some tips on how to hide that baby belly!

Maxi skirts and dresses are my favorite for summer. You throw them on and feel and look good!
