Inspired By: Summer Foods

Once summer arrives unofficially at the end of May, all I want to do is eat light food and ice cold drinks. I'll save the soup, hot chocolate, and heavier foods for colder months thankyouverymuch. To keep cool in these sizzling months stick to fruits of all kinds, cold drinks (hello mango smoothie!), ice cream and fro-yo, and of course water. 

Colorful Fruits
Inspired By: Colorful Fruit

Seeing fruit stands all over the place once summer arrives makes me want to switch to a diet consisting entirely of strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, and watermelon. Suffice it to say I'm still eating other foods, but we can definitely dress like our favorite fruits. Wear an strawberry (or watermelon) red dress, watermelon earrings, and colorblock sandals. Or dress like a fruit salad by donning a red cardigan, yellow tank top, blue jeans, and orange sandals. 

Inspired By: Lemonade
Lemonade stands are the epitome of summer and childhood. It brings a smile to my face when I see a kid handing out cold cups of freshly made lemonade for 50 cents. Dress like a sophisticated version (lavender lemonade from the picture above) by wearing a yellow sleeveless top, lavender shorts, yellow sunglasses, and brown sandals. Or instead wear a yellow dress with a green blazer, green stud earrings, and cut out heeled sandals.  

I Scream for Ice Cream
Inspired By: Ice Cream
I don't know about you, but I love eating ice cream during any season, but there's something amazing about devouring it on a warm day and having it melt over your fingers. Dress like chocolate ice cream, one of my favorite flavors, by wearing a light white sweater, brown high-low hem skirt, brown necklace, and brown bow flats. Or take a cue from Napoleon ice cream: a black and white top, white lace shorts, black sandals, and pink jewelry. 

Inspired By: H2-Oh!
When the temperature rises, it's so much easier (and so much more necessary) to drink lots of water. I find it refreshing to sip on ice cold water, and then take a welcome plunge or canon ball into the deep end of a pool. If you want to be inspired by this thirst-quenching liquid, why not wear a watercolor print dress, silver belt, blue wedges, and lucite cross-body bag. Or look to the delicious cucumber water for inspiration: all-white outfit with a white hat, heeled sandals, mint necklace, and mint watch. 

What's your favorite thing to eat during the summer?
