#1 - Feather earrings
Jayme's mom was the first to turn us on to this trend. Believe it or not, she found her inspiration from an episode of Pretty Little Liars. Feather earrings are a fun and easy way to spice up your outfit. Everyone's adding feathers to their hair this season, so why not add them to your ears!
#2 - LWD (Little White Dress)
The LWD is a must-have for Summer. Perfect for date night, weddings (yes, we said it...it's OK to wear white to a wedding) or family reunions. Just beware of the BBQ sauce!! And remember you can always add color with your bag or some bright accessories.

#3 - Nude frame sunglasses
We just learned something new: Don't google images of nude sunglasses. We didn't exactly get what we were looking for. Eek!! Anyhoo, nude has been such a hot color since Spring and now you can incorporate nude into your style via something other than nail polish or lip gloss. We don't see this color going bye bye anytime soon!
Micheal Kors 'Shetland' Cat's Eye Sunglasses in Nude from Nordstrom for $115.00
#4 - Tie-waist shorts
Tuck a tank into these shorties & you've got the easiest outfit that you can possibly pull together for the Summer. Dress em up or dress em down, you can't go wrong!
#5 - Ikat print
Yes, we know, the Ikat trend has been around for awhile, but we've noticed that it isn't going away anytime soon. There are tons of ways in which you can incorporate a little Ikat into your life: a scarf, a bag, some home decor...but we fell in love with this dress at first sight.
Silence & Noise Ikat Dress from Urban Outfitters for $79.00
#6 - Fringe sandals
How fun is fringe?? We love this look, but we do think that there is such a thing as TOO much fringe, so we love this Lauren Conrad suede fringe sandal in natural. Just enough fringe without going overboard. We see this paired with a cute sundress or a pair of shorts. Perfect for that afternoon party by the pool or an outdoor concert.

#7 - The Low Bun
"My anaconda don't want none, unless you've got buns, hon..." Sorry, we didn't mean to go "there." Sir-Mix-a-Lot does that to us sometimes. What we really want to share here is our favorite hair trend for the Summer...and can you say easy peasy?!?!?
#8 - Bronze makeup
Why not have that sun-kissed glow all day and even into the night? This is the best time of year to play up your face with golden and bronze makeup. Bronze colors will give you that beautiful and natural look without the harsh effects of laying out in the sun. You can't go wrong with this palette of perfection.
Little Black Palette from Lorac for $33.00
#9 - Lip stains
We love the idea of a lip color with staying power during the heat of Summer. Swimming, sweating and dare we say kissing, all work against our freshly done lips. But with this lip stain you have the luxury of long-lasting color AND a balm to keep your lips moisturized. So go ahead apply your lip stain and dive into the pool. Your hair might be wrecked, but your pout won't be.

#10 - Neon home decor
Add a pop of Summertime color to your mantel, a dining room table or your outdoor patio with something that will WOW houseguests.
