Summer 2018 Trends: Pom Poms + Scallops

I don’t know about you but Memorial Day weekend has completely sneaked up on me this year. I about fell over when I realized it was coming up this weekend. It’s not like we ever make big plans though. We will probably go to my sister’s house for a cookout (Heather, if you’re reading, I just invited us over!) She just got a new pool installed, so the way I see it, she should be designated party thrower. Am I right? 🙂

I’m also feeling a bit behind on my summer shopping although I did pick up a few things for the Style Challenges Summer 2018 Capsule Wardrobe last week. My shorts collection needs a bit of an update so of course I had to have a few new cute tops to pair with them!

Today’s outfit is made up of trendy items from my recent shopping trip that are also on the summer shopping list. I can’t remember the last time I got this excited over summer trends! There are SO many good ones out there – like scalloped and pom pom trims, ruffle details, gingham, bright colors, kimonos and tropical patterns.

This top had me at pom poms and I just love the color of these scalloped shorts. These two trends play really well together. Solid colors and minimal accessories keep it from getting too busy.

Pom Pom Top + Scalloped Shorts + Tassel Earrings + Gold Sandals

Two of my essential accessories for summer are my layered oval tassel necklace and this cuff bracelet. They both go with everything.

These bright tassel earrings add just the right pop of color. I’ve always adored bright pink with green!
