As yesterday’s 95-degree weather might indicate, summer is pretty much here (or at least just around the corner), and with the heat, so comes summer style. Recently I checked out the newest summer spread at Ann Taylor, and let me warn you: it’s just. so. good. This weekend (May 2nd through the 4th) Ann Taylor is once again launching their Style on Call event so that you can check out the new collection with the one-on-one help of their amazing in-store stylists. Your stylist can help you figure out what works for your style and body and maybe even suggest a few ways for you to step out of your comfort zone.
I headed to my local Ann Taylor and worked with Monet (who was a blast to work with) to pick out a few new pieces for my summer wardrobe. For me, nothing screams summer quite like a white blouse and linen shorts combo, so I couldn’t resist the first look above. A white blouse is probably one of the most versatile pieces you can add to your closet, and you really can’t go wrong with well-fitting striped shorts. Add a pair of wedges (like these or THESE), and you’re good to go. For the second look, I decided to step a little outside my comfort zone and try out this whole midi-skirt thing that I’ve mostly avoided. When it comes to skirt and dress hemlines, I tend to go for short or long and nothing in between, but I couldn’t resist the fun way this floral midi moves when you walk. A fitted little sweater helped to add shape, while these comfy wedges finished off the look.
If you’re feeling like your closet could use a little spruce or you just want a fun shopping experience (complete with treats, discounts, and a free gift from EOS), then book your appointment and head over to the Style on Call event at the Ann Taylor near you. With the help of their helpful stylists, you’re sure to find the a few new pieces to jump start your summer wardrobe. Happy shopping!
