Staff Weekend Lookbook: Miranda's Hot Summer Pose Off (plus comment to WIN)
Longtime ChickAdvisor readers know we have a thing for our Posing Wall. And while we usually we pose off against each other (winning is the most important thing, right?), we are switching things up a little 'round these parts for the next few weeks.
For my lookbook, I decided to showcase some of my favourite pieces for the summer. You may notice a recurring trend in my outfits, and that is I love to incorporate a lot of neutrals. While it's easy to stick with a safe play, I am finding myself adding more colour lately.
In my first look, I paired my loud and proud pink jeans with a sheer sleeveless blouse from H&M and a pair of black pumps from Banana Republic's Madmen Collection. I accessorized my outfit with edgy studs, dash of silver, and matching skinny belt. White tank blouses are a must-have for summer weather and perfect for layering. To spruce up the blouse, I under layered one of my favourite white camisole top that I picked up at a clothing swap party. I absolutely love the stitched details and scallop neckline. It transformed my simple blouse into an exciting new piece.
Less is more, so show some skin! It can't be contained anyway in this beautiful balmy weather. Here I've paired my favourite silk green tank from H&M, a pair of high-waist shorts from Zara, vintage belt that I dug up in a pile of my mom's old stuff, and elastic gladiator sandals from Spring Shoes (which I should mention are super comfortable, easy to get on and off, and can be paired with many outfits). To top it off, I added a few small accessories and Longchamp handbag.
For my final look, I was feeling hip chic. I wore out my favourite leather crossbody bag from ASOS, which was last introduced in my posing wall article. Knowing that I would be strolling downtown Toronto and shopping, I wanted to wear something light and casual. With that being said, I put together a grey Zara maxi dress and striped tank from Express, and kicked it off with white lace flats from Urban Outfitters. Lastly, I accented my outfit with a silver ornament pendant I got as a gift.
It's easy to create a fresh and fun summer look just by throwing in a hot bright color. Accessorize with a few of your favourite statement pieces and you can go from simple to stylish. Which of my 3-day looks is your favourite? Do you have any pieces that you enjoy wearing this season?

I am loving day 3! I think its sumer cute and trendy. She could even dress it up for night with heels.
I like day 2. I pretty much only wear sandals in summer, no closed toe shoes.
Love, love, love the pink jeans!! Don't know if I could pull them off, but they look great on you.
Day 1 is my fav. Hands down!
I love day 1 outfit.Especially the bold pink jeans.
Wow, these three outfits are equally very nice! Gold star*** If I had to choose just one outfit I would choose the dress only because it is a dress. I love the pink pants with the white top because it looks so summer fresh and the bling is just gorgeous. Outfit No. 1 is perfect. Outfit No.2 is very nice because the blouse is a beautiful colour and I absolutely adore those high waisted shorts. The shoes are a perfect match for this outfit. No.3 is very very nice. I love the style of that dress and was actually surprised that the top is a separate piece because they go together so well. Perfect choice on the shoes for a fun shopping day! I want to raid her closet!!
