5 tips on dressing for Summer when it’s not sunny.

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!

Lacey Casual Vibes.

August 18, 2016


 Blouse: Shein | Jeans: Flying Monkey (Miss Match) | Handbag: c/o LumillaMingus
Heels: Lulu’s (thrifted for $10!) | Necklace: Baublebar | Watch: Tory Burch | Bracelets: BP
Lips: MAC Snob with THIS over | Sunglasses: Free HERE (use code ‘topknotsandpearls‘ at checkout)

Easy breezy look. Lace is seriously one of my favorite fabrics to wear. I feel so feminine and pretty in it! Especially, anything white lace and off the shoulder like this one. It can be the perfect complement to soft feminine pieces or be an edgy component to leather and distressed denim. 

Today, I wore it with distressed jeans and heels. This is one my of my go-to outfits for date night or a lunch out. I feel put together and oh so chic! It’s amazing how the right pieces put together can give you all the confidence you need to tackle your day. Let’s be honest, we all need that just about every day. 

To finish off this look, I carried my new obsession. I can’t go anywhere with it and not have someone ask me about it. This LumillaMingus handbag is to die for. PS you can also find this handbag on Goop

Blushing around town.

Dress: c/o Make Me Chic | Heels: Nordstrom (similar here) | Handbag: c/o LumillaMingus 
Earrings: Baublebar | Watch: Kate Spade | Lips: MAC Snob |

Summertime is for flowy dresses and pink accents. This dress does not disappoint. It is so comfortable! It was 90 degrees this day but I didn’t feel the impact of the temps. Plus, I am a sucker for anything off the shoulder. The price is amazing too, only $24! Basically, you need this dress in your closet.  Did I mention I have worn this dress 3 times since I got it? #noshame

I have always been a pink girl. Hot pink, neon pink, and now blush pink. ! Let’s be honest, blush and I are best friends.  This clutch from LumillaMingus is by far my favorite clutch I have ever owned. It’s the most beautiful blush pink! The leather is incredibly soft and has a grey suede interior. The craftsmanship speaks for itself.  Best part, it is hand made here in the US. LumillaMingus also donates 10% of the proceeds to a charity that helps women and children in need. You can also shop their beautiful handbags on Goop!

Happy Tuesday!
