What to Wear: Summer Party Style

May 30, 2013

Summer parties are joyous opportunities to have fun, eat potato salad, hot dogs and ice cream and show off your warm weather style of course! It's the season everyone waits for all year so you want to get out there and soak up the sun rather than stand in front of your closet trying to decide what to wear. Get ready to hog the spotlight with some style-setting outfits and dresses that are sure to be a hit whether you're going to a barbecue, pool party, backyard party or a summer festival! 

Summer Style Tips

When you're hanging out at a summer BBQ or house party, a pair of vintage-look shorts paired with a printed t-shirt paired with pink lipstick will give you an effortless yet retro cool look! Coordinate with a classic pair of sweet sandalsand oversized cat-eye sunglasses and you've got an effortlessly cool party look. 

If you're going to a wedding, be dressed to impress with a floaty dress in a bright shade like canary yellow or cobalt blue. Add some gold hoop earrings and a clutch bag for a touch of elegance and you're ready to dance. 

For your next pool party, wear a cute playsuit over a bikini or swimsuit and pair with flip flops and a big floppy sunhat and instantly amp up the glam factor! A pair of statement sunglasses show that you know your style stuff.

I'm not quiet sure what's a real friend and what's a fake one anymore. I know when there's a friend who's only a school friend rather than an 'outside' friend as well, but at the same time it makes me so confused. Here's my story: There's a girl named Xian. We had a unique way of becoming friends ... but it clicked. For the whole year I've been trying to keep in contact with her ... but she's not very willing to try and put in any effort to stay in contact with me. Her personality is beyond sweet, and her skills at art are even better. If she was to have an award, it would be a giant trophy with her face plastered on it and big bold letters listing 'Nicest Girl In The World!' ... Its just ... she lied to me.  I was all about this friendship. I was ... i'll admit ... sort of a lost puppy following around her owner.  So, I got her this T-Shirt she really wanted for her birthday, and not long her birthday was mine, April First. I was expecting at least a letter, or maybe even something cheap. It didn't really matter to me.  But on my birthday she didn't even come to school. Nor when she got back did she ever say sorry, or give me any be-lated gift of any sort.  That should have been my first clue. Even my mother started catching on. My second clue was she even told me she was oblivious and wasn't good at keeping in contact. I thought she was joking. How could a friendship so sweet be tossed out just like that? My third one was near the end of school, one of her friends in elementary was bragging about the plushies she got from Xian. Apparently she had four from her.  Xian had originally told me it was AGAINST her religion to give out gifts to other people. I knew she wasn't lying about her religion in general, because I met her mom on a field trip and she was quiet ... different. But I didn't understand why Xian had gotten so many small plushies for her, and yet not a single small stamp for me? My last clue was the last day of school. She didn't even try to say good-bye or even hang out with me for that matter. I know what you're thinking. "Girl, you've gotta be kidding me if you can't see that she has no intention of being your friend!" But this girl was the nicest to me. She stood next to me during harsh times, and comforted me when I was down. She told me I was important.  And you don't get many friends to do those special things to you. It was rare to have a friend make me feel so tall and worthy.  ... So ... I can't understand ... why'd she do all that .... and suddenly ... just ... walk away ...
