5 Awesome Outfits You Need to Wear This Summer

Posted July 11, 2014 by in Lifestyle

There’s just so much to do in the summer: block parties, lazy days by the pool, rooftop parties, and outdoor brunch — just to name a few. But the list is endless!

If your schedule is a bit crazy due to all the exciting things you have planned this summer, you might be running out of outfit ideas. That’s why we teamed up with Marlen, the vintage loving blogger behind Messages on a Napkin. Below she styled five awesome outfits for any summer event — from movies in the park, to a local carnival.

Movies in the Park

Many towns and cities play newly released movies on a semi-big screen during the summer. If your town didn’t get the memo, grab a few friends and watch a movie at the park while snacking on yummy treats.

Rooftop Dinner

Many restaurants open up their rooftops and outdoor seating during the summer. So take advantage of it while it lasts!

No matter how old you are, carnivals are always a great place to go for a good time. Skip the rides and indulge in fried food, or do both!

 Food Truck Festival

Food trucks are the latest trend in the restaurant industry and we aren’t complaining. In New York City, we have a grilled cheese truck, a fresh pressed juice truck, and even a food truck serving amazing coffee! What does your town or city have?

Block Party

Going to a block party this summer? If it’s not on your agenda, it must mean there isn’t one going on. That’s a sign you should organize one with your friends and neighbors!
