And for a little extra pop, try adding a velvet pearl headband to complete the look. Voila!
Denim Ruffle Dress
Denim, denim, denim…oh, and more denim! Denim is back and it’s a trend we are happy to say that we are fully here for. Maybe not Britney and Justine at the American Music Awards denim, but a trendy denim summer dress is exactly what the doctor ordered. Light, airy, and perfectly flattering, a summer dress like this checks every box when it comes to crafting your favorite style. If you’re heading out to meet some friends for an afternoon coffee picnic, try Southern Made’s Light Wash Denim Ruffle dress. Similar to what you see above, this sleeveless number makes rocking denim the easiest choice you’ll make all summer. Dress is up with some wedge sandals or dress it down with some flair sneakers. Either way, this you’ll be a denim dream!
Sun Jellies Fiesta Shopper
What is a picnic without a bag to carry all of your goodies in? Once you’ve got the cooler packed, it’s time to get together everything from the blanket, cups, silverware, even games to play with friends! The best part is that you can do it all in style. Grab your Sun Jellies bag in your favorite color and head out the door. This is one bag you’ll never regret purchasing. Did we mention that it comes in tons of different colors?

High Rise Denim Shorts
Ah yes, the classic denim short. A summer staple since what seems like the beginning of time. It doesn’t seem like there needs to be much convincing needed for a pair of these to find their way into your already perfect wardrobe, but we can’t help but add a small suggestion. High-rise pants and shorts are a fan favorite, so don’t forget to snag that pair of shorts calling your name. If you do need any more convincing, take a peek at Southern Made’s Light Denim Shorts with the frayed hem. Pair with a Halter Sweater Tank and your favorite sunnies and hit the road.
