If you have been following this blog for a while you know I love to wear the color black. I always gravitate towards it in a store and typically think every item I own would look better in black. So it should be no surprise that I wear black even during the hot Alabama summer. Over the years I have figured out how to pull this off while staying relatively cool and still looking like I am dressed for the season.

Add a pop of color. Whether it is a red top, a colorful bag, or bright shoes, adding in color will help you seem like you know it is actually Summer. I found this top at Forever 21 and it instantly reminded me of the Topshop bardot tops that have been popular lately. I loved the bright red color and the fact that it is almost $40 less!

Find pieces geared toward the season. These destroyed denim shorts and slide on sandals are a perfect example. I live in denim shorts throughout the whole Summer so getting a pair in black just makes sense. I recently picked up these sandals too and they are so incredibly comfortable. I didn’t really even like how they looked at first but they were so comfy I had to get them.

Add in some black accessories. A pair of black sunglasses is the easiest way to incorporate your love for the color black into your summer looks. I also decided to wear this crossbody bag that has a fun tribal print that is on trend for summer.

Or you can just wear an all black look no matter what time of year. You do you boo!
