I am so excited to be a part of this blogger series for the first time

I wanted to be a part of this series because I even though I don't ever want to have a "fashion blog", I do like to showcase my sense of style on my blog, and it has been especially cool to see how my fashion has evolved over my years of blogging. I was thrilled when I got the email from Deidree Emme letting me know that I would be in the series this month! 

The look that was chosen was "casual summer days" and the style inspiration was from
Gentri Lee's Bittersweet Changes // Fawn Design post. 

SO I don't know about anyone else, but when I read "casual" summer days, my first thought was hello leggings. Leggings are one of my favorite go-tos in the summer months because they are modest, comfortable and they are great when the weather can be somewhat unpredictable. I obviously wear my leggings a lot as you can tell from the wear in the knees, I think I should get a new pair soon! So whether I am going for a walk with my sister, or on a date night with hubby or catching up with the girls for a ice cream, leggings work every time. I paired them with a floral kimono and plain top I bought from H&M a little while ago. This outfit makes me feel light, airy and most of all, comfortable! 

This is also a great transition outfit for day-to-night if you add a 
statement necklace, big earrings or a bright lip colour !!! 

Sandals: Target (old)

Go and have a look at how these other wonderful ladies styled their "casual" summer days look!

I have a few of those types of kimonos and they are seriously all I wear during the hot summer days so I am with ya 100% on that!
