Guest Post: Style by Santina (See Jane's Friend)

Top:  French Connection, Skirt + Belt:  J Crew, Shoes: Mossimo Supply Co (Target), Sunglasses: F21

Hey there!  I'm Santina from Style by Santina. It's a bit ironic that I find myself guest blogging for Anna as I've been living in the very same small Mexican beach town where she's getting married.  Funny, right?

When it's really hot (and believe me, it's really hot) I tend to pass on accessories and instead reach for clothing that's interesting enough to stand alone without a gaggle of necklaces or an armful of bracelets.  The pleating on the neckline, flutter sleeves and bold print of this shirt made me feel put together while still keeping cool.  To play up the feminine vibe, I added an a-line denim skirt and a skinny, pink belt and then finished the look with striped espadrilles and, of course, sunglasses.

Do you adopt a similar look when temperatures rise?

Such a pretty mixture of prints! The outfit especially with the blouse and nautical flats makes the perfect summery look.

I do agree that when it's too hot accessories can be a bit much! Plus, the print on your top is so fun, it makes up for jewelry!

That's why print was invented ;) (for really hot days when you just want to rip that wet string from your neck). Aloha shirts, muumuus, funky flip flops.....Love the colors you chose!
