Summer Sizzle…Hot Summer Fashion & Giveaway!

May 4, 2012

Summer Fashion Neon


Okay, so pugs technically aren’t considered a fashion trend for summer, but when the weather heats up Ralphie and I do love to roam to the beach and really there is nothing that gets you noticed quicker than an adorable, chubby pug…it really doesn’t matter what you wear!


Summer is hot and so is the fashion!  The biggest trends I’m picking up on are touches of neon, feisty feline prints and not-the-normal-thong flippy floppy sandals that are adorned with funky, off cut straps, unique textures and glitzy embellishments.

What I’m sporting:

Sunglasses-  I picked up these Mosley Tribes Patterson Sunglasses in Black and Fuchsia from Sunglasses-Shop.  I love the neon trim…not too too much so you could wear these into fall, but just enough to pop and be on-trend! These sunglasses come with a soft case + cleaning cloth  {$94}

Top-  I layered two Cantina womens t-shirts in Neon Hot Tropic and Meadow from Fresh Produce.  The shirts breathe really well on hot summer days and are perfect for hiking, trips to the beach or backyard BBQs. I love layering tees- it adds texture without being too hot on sticky, humid days  {$34 each}

Sandals-  Animal prints never seem to get old. I picked these leopard Luichiny sandals because of their unique texture and style.  They have a wood base but are surprisingly comfortable.  I have a bikini to pair these with but honestly, they’re going to be fab with black shorts or a white maxi dress!  {$89.95}

Pug-  This is Ralph.  Technically not for sale, but feel free to donate noms for his treat jar.  If you’re in the area, feel free to borrow him for a walk, he’s the ultimate fashion statement, you’ll be sure to turn heads!

Jewelry- When I put together my first real “summer” outfit I realized the one thing I lack is jewelry (explains why I’m wearing none in the picture.)  Going through my stash turned up plenty of fancy picks for fall and winter, but everything I own is too formal or heavy for the hot summer months. I’m going to start looking for some summer pieces over at Fresh Trends but will probably opt for simple, understated pieces.

Luichiny is giving away a $25 gift card to get a pair of sandals for yourself!

    I don’t understand the point of this giveaway. It seems like even with the gift card these shoes are going to cost a lot of money since they don’t seem to have anything under $60.00.
