This Oregon girl forgot what Summer weather can be during June and July. Trying to dress like “Summer” with “Fall” conditions had me scratching my head. The last two months I have been religiously following these 5 tips, I hope they help you during the rainy parts of Summer. 

Dress in Summer Colors: If the weather doesn’t allow you to wear your Summer cuts, such as tank tops and shorts, wear the colors for Summer. For me, that is lots of white with accents. 
Light Layers: To keep you warm when the temperature drops (not significant;y to the point you need thick coats lol), wear a light jacket or blouse like this chambray. This will give you the feeling it’s still Summer without the heat. 
Light Neutrals: Summer is the perfect time for cognac brown and tans. Fall and Winter are for black shades (well, mostly, I wear black year round!) and dark browns. I will wear an entire outfit of White with pops of tan and cognac for a fresh look when the weather is dreary. 
Booties: These shoes will accent all your Summer dresses perfectly but give you the comfort you need when it’s a bit chillier and possibly raining outside. 

Colorful Lips: I love a good bold lip, especially in the Summer. When the weather isn’t cooperating, I will brighten my look for the day with a nice pink lipstick. I am wearing this one but also love this one!

This will be my last blog post for about 2 weeks. I am disabling my blog on Wednesday to start working on a big change for Topknots and Pearls! The change will happen on September 4th, this is the 3 year anniversary for Topknots and Pearls. I am unbelievably excited for this! Until then, stay connected on Facebook HERE and Instagram HERE! I will be sharing sneak peaks and outfit of the days there!
