Refresh My Summer with Starbucks

During past summers, I would always find myself frantically digging through my closet for my summer clothes but unable to find anything suitable to wear puzzling, I know. This summer, I'm trying something a little different and remixing some of my pieces from the fall and winter into my summer wardrobe. Thanks to Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee, I'll have all the energy to prepare my wardrobe for this summer!

It's always easy to style skirts for the fall and sweaters for the winter; just throw on some flats and a cute tee for the former, and classic jeans & jacket for the latter, and you're all set. But how about using some of these items for the summer?

We can start with the sweater. Roll the sleeves up for those warm summer nights to keep your arms cool. Try to keep the arm candy and neck adornments to a minimum preferably none particularly if the temperature is a bit warmer than normal. 

I love pairing and mixing patterns, and planning for this outfit was no different. I like the contrast of the extra large horizontal stripes paired with the horizontal skinny stripes from a skirt I had worn during the fall. I probably don't have to tell you why I love wearing skirts during the summer, but I try to keep the skirt a little longer for casual evenings in the city.

Pair the final outfit with a cute, bright-colored bag a summer essential to contrast the more neutral blue tones and you're almost ready for a summer night out with your girlfriends.

Sometimes lasting through the entire day, with work and everything else that comes with life, can be a bit difficult without the right pick me up. I was recently given the chance to try the new Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee, and I think it's the perfect pick-me-up from a midday slump. It definitely doesn't lack on taste nor does it slack on that extra energy kick. And it fits perfectly in my purse too!

So go and get your summer wardrobe started, grab yourself some Bottled Starbucks® Iced Coffee, and welcome the bright, hot summer with open arms!
