Pretty Fix: The June List

Happy June pretties!  Summer is off to a great start around the Lumbatis household. We’re thoroughly enjoying our slowed down pace, days at the pool and planning out our upcoming beach vacation (which btw – I’m working on a packing list, so stay tuned).

If you’re new around here, the Pretty Fix is a monthly feature with budget-friendly recommendations for staying on trend.  The idea for it was born out of frustration some of you have had with box styling services. The Pretty Fix allows you to shop for the pieces at your favorite stores so it’s budget and quality conscious. Of course, I always recommend that you shop your closet first!

This month’s Pretty Fix is basically my summer uniform – a t-shirt, denim shorts and some fun accessories to add interest.  It’s also one of the outfits we styled this week in the Summer 2017 GYPO Style Challenge. P.S. There’s still time to join us and build your summer capsule wardrobe!  You can sign up HERE.

Here’s my real life version of this month’s fix.

[Navy Tee:  Similar/Olive Shorts:  Same/Tassel Necklace (On Sale):  Same/Tassel Sandals (On Sale):  Same]

Let’s talk about these olive shorts for a minute.  When I put these on the summer challenge shopping list, I still didn’t have a pair in my own closet.  I searched high and low for the perfect fit and length and finally found this pair.  I love them so much that I got them in blush too! For reference, I went up a size in these.

Pretty Fix – June 2017

1. Navy T-Shirt

Did I happen to mention that navy and olive is one of my favorite new neutral outfit color combos? I’ve kind of been obsessed with it since last fall.  This navy tee is just drapey enough for a perfect half tuck. Here are some other options:  1/2

2. Tassel Necklace

I know, I know – if you’ve seen me wear this red tassel necklace once, you’ve seen it a hundred times.  There’s a great reason for that, it goes with so many things.  I love how it adds the right amount of interest to this outfit and ties in with the tassels on the sandals too! Oh and by the way, it’s also on sale.  Shopping options:  1/2

3. Olive Shorts

My love for these olive shorts has already been professed above but let me reiterate. They are a neutral that go with just about anything in your closet. Shopping Options:  1/2

4. Tassel Sandals

Embellished sandals are having a moment! I went with this pair because I just love all of the colors and those red tassels.  They’re also on sale.  Here are some options:  1/2

    I have found, since taking your advice, it does often help to go a size up in shorts!

    I just got a pair of olive shorts and have been pairing them with navy gingham! I pair navy with everything! It’s such a great neutral, flattering color!
