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.

Calm down. Ignore her. You are YOU, don't let anyone change you. If someone hurts, cry a river and build a bridge over it cx

Hmmm....Then she mustn't be necessarily "using" you, if she is not getting something in return ( As far as we know of). However, It does sound like she is being extremely unfair. That just might be how she is. Not exactly loyal to anyone. Well, try to talk to her about it and tell her how you feel. And, if it doesn't work out, then she might not be a great friend to hang around with, and maybe you will find someone else who enjoys your company. I hope this helps, and good luck :)

No not really. Like I said, one minute she's all smiley and then she doesn't even look at me. Most of the time I see her with Daniela and Andrea. Today she was asking me if I was going to hang out with her, Daniela, Andrea and Luisa during recess. When I told her that I was 'going to have to think' she was like, "Whatever." and ran off to catch up with the Threesome. Thanks. :)

Is she asking you to do things for her? Like help with homework, carry her books and so on?
