As much as I love summer, I have to admit that getting dressed for the heat has its challenges, which is where fun statement pieces come into play. I’m an advocate of investment pieces, but trendier details are truly the best way to keep your wardrobe fresh and updated. July is the month where I’ll start experimenting more with the season’s top trends since many spring and summer collections start to get marked down. It’s a great opportunity to score the items on your wishlist at a steep discount – and oftentimes, these pieces can be reworked for fall too (see my July 4 sale round up HERE). From feminine blouses to beauty essentials, check out the items I’m eyeing this month to stay cool and on trend.
