Along with that, the easiest way to be chic in the Summer is to go with the "retro lady look" a la Doris Day, Marilyn Monroe and my favorite- Audrey Hepburn. Bows tying back your hair, floral skirts and light cotton cardis. Perfect for cool evening walks, ice cream cones and bike rides along the beach. I think of when my mom was a girl, what she would have worn and who she would have styled her wardrobe after.
I'm going after classic 60's with a modern twist. You can own the look and go all in if you dare or just add a retro piece to what you're wearing to change things up. Feeling nostalgic?
