One of my favorite things during the summer are barbecues. It’s the time for families and friends to get together and have fun. Everyone is surrounding the pool, the beautiful summer sunsets, and hot temperatures. It’s the perfect combination for a great day or evening BBQ. I highly recommend checking out Bon Appetite for the latest summer BBQ recipes. The monthly magazine offers tasty, new ways to make your all-time favorite meals. Also, for fresh and delicious produce there are great farmer’s markets and organic grocery stores (Trader Joe’s, New Seasons, & The Kiva).
Current trends for BBQ wear have been the loosely fit, comfortable sundresses and the simplistic tees & jeans look. This week’s featured Fashionista show off her Nordstrom BP outfit. The jeans are William Rast by Justin Timberlake and the Fashionista has paired them with a gray tee and printed scarf. William Rast offers sexy, yet comfortable jeans that look good on any body shape. I highly recommend checking them out because they are a necessity for your closet. My other current favorites are:
• Shorts & Capris: 7 For All Mankind offers comfortable and versatile jeans for every occasion.
• Dresses: Mimi Chica line of printed dresses (so cute!), they’re definitely worth a look or two.
• Shoes: Sperry Top-Siders are a unique line of colorful summer shoes. They are a bit narrow, so have a sales associate fit your shoe size accordingly
• Flip-Flops: Havaianas offers a line of colorful and affordable flip-flops. They are made of rubber, but will last a long time.
