Beautiful Inspiration: Chic in the Heat, Plus Couture Cocktails

With summer in full swing, I want to share an ensemble that will keep you chic in the heat.  I prefer jumpsuits to maxi’s this summer.  Not that I’ve discarded maxi’s completely, I still like and wear mine, but they are worn on just about everyone I see when I go out.  Not only are jumpsuits chic and comfortable, but they look great on most body shapes.
When the temps are soaring, I want to be cool and comfortable without sacrificing style.  I think this jumpsuit fits the bill. 

I love, love, love the nautical print (other options here, here, and here).

Of course, no ensemble would be complete without accessories. 

I like this spear necklace (similar here).  It’s simple, elegant, and doesn’t compete with the print of the jumpsuit.

 sun hat to protect against the sun’s rays (similar here, here, and another option here).  This hat is great for travel as it can be packed away into your luggage without the worry of damage and losing it’s shape.

A great Clutch (similar here and another option here).  I’m always searching for summer bags and this one is perfect ~ I love the pop of colour and starfish motif, plus it can be paired with so many outfits.

 Sandals (similar here and here).  I purchased these earlier this season and I wear them constantly.  They are so comfortable and look great with almost everything.
What is summer without a refreshing cocktail?  I love a good sangria and this tropical version is delicious with my favourite summer fruits.  One thing I like about sangria’s, you can mix up the fruits to what you like or have on hand.
Tropical Sangria
2oz white wine (Sauvignon blanc, pinot grigio, or other crisp white)
1oz white rum
1/2oz fresh lime juice
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tbsp apples (diced)
1 tbsp mango (diced)
2 mint leaves (lrg, chopped)
2oz club soda
Combine, chill, and serve.  Serves 4

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
