I'll be honest. I had nearly given up all hope that those summertime sunshine rays were ever going to find their way to the mountains of northwest Colorado. The past few days and upcoming few days have me convinced it is finally happening. The magic 80* is even showing up on my 7-day forecast. Hallelujah!
To celebrate, how about a simple run down of some of my favorite, must have summer staples and styles.
1. Embroidery on Denim
Embroidery is hands down my favorite fashion statement ever. You can imagine how excited it makes me that it has hit the big time this season. My closet is full of embroidered pieces of all types, ranging from pieces I acquired and never fell out of love with in high school to handmade pieces made by women I have met in my travels. I think it's the details and colors that captivate me so much when it comes to embroidery.
My favorite way to wear embroidery is on a stellar denim button up. Something about the way the thread pops on the simple background makes my heart twitter patter. And, if you're a horse showing gal like me, embroidered denim tops were made for the summertime arena!
Check out these two beauties - the Canyons by Tasha Polizzi and Steamboat by Stetson offered at Woolies to get your embroidery fix. While they are long sleeves, they are perfect for the chilly evenings in the mountains or those overly air-conditioned offices down south.
2. Vintage Vibes
I cannot get enough of the vintage patch look, from floral to rocker chick to retro cowgirl. I feel like the Malibu top covers that span of genres pretty well, and I love the different ways it can be styled.
This pieces has been one of Woolies hottest sellers, and we still have a few pieces available...if you hurry!
3. Kimes Kouture
The brainchild of Megan Holdren from Livewire Clothing and available exclusively through Woolies, Kimes Kouture jeans are simply everything. Regardless if your style is all glammed up or laid back surfer chick, you can find a pair of these limited edition jeans that fit your style personality perfectly. Each pair of Kimes Kouture jeans are made to order and only a limited number will be made in each style so you won't be looking like everyone else. Not too mention, they are crafted from 100% Made in USA Kimes Ranch jeans. Big win!
4. I Love America
It's true; I do. I'm not someone who typically loves to dress for holidays in holiday specific wears, but the Fourth of July has always been my one exception to the rule. I love getting all decked out in red, white, and blue or stars and stripes to celebrate this great land we are so fortunate to be apart of. In all honesty, the first outfit I personally picked out for my new baby girl was a Fourth of July outfit.
Watch out ladies, the mister will likely try to swipe the cap right out from under you.
5. Woolies Patch Cap
Last, but most definitely not least, a summertime staple that can't be left out is a Woolies Patch cap. If you're anything like me, you live in caps during the summer. Whether it's to keep the sun off your face or to hide your hair that hasn't been washed for a few extra days, hats are an absolute essential. Our patch caps feature simple colors and design that pair easily with an array of styles.
