My Ultimate Rockabilly Inspired Summer Style

So lately I've been talking lots about how excited I am for summer to come, so I thought that to keep my spirits up during all this snow the Chicago area has been getting (boo!) I would do a post on my ideal summer style. Spoiler alert! It's very rockabilly influenced!

My favorite dress/skirt style for the summer usually involves a very, very full skirt; 1950's silhouette, and lots of color! Patterns are also welcome.

For shoes I usually like something bold, with a heel or wedge. Who says you can only have one "statement" piece??

For accessories I like to go bold, too. Brightly colored rings, belts, necklaces, ect. Scarves look great with high pony tails (which have the added benefit of keeping my hair away from my face!), and floppy hats just add to the chic-1950's feel while keeping the sun off my face.

What about you? What's your ideal summer style? Link me up with your ideal summer dress/skirt/accessory!

Having said that is not the reason I wrote this post, and I picked out all the dresses because I like them - in fact I've had my eye on several of them for weeks.


  1. All these summer pieces are gorgeous. I love that blue racer skirt. If I wasn't so poor I'd go snatch it up right this instant!

  2. Love these items! So kitsch and cute! They'll look so cute on you!

  3. I am also a fan of the full skirt, that's what I've been wearing all summer down here!

  4. The color palette you've chosen is so happy and inviting.
