3 SUMMER STAPLES, ENDLESS BEACH VIBES

Molly Hogan (@trendychickadee) is a sun-chasing, sandy-beach-loving boho babe. Based in LA, her blog is dedicated to bringing followers all the latest info on her favorite up-and-coming brands, emerging trends, travel diaries and more.

Molly’s relaxed, beachy vibe reminds us of what we love most about summer: effortless, sunny style during the warmest days of the year. We asked her to show us her take on 3 summer staples – tanks, shorts and Aerie swim!

Next up, Molly took her bike for a quick spin around town in classic white denim shorts and a flirty, strapless ruffled top. Does anything feel more boardwalk-ready than pale, nautical stripes? (We think not!)

“My favorite summer wardrobe staple is a pair of white denim shorts, and AEO has the best of the best! I paired them with a breezy tube top for a beach bike ride, and then a chambray crop later in the day for an early dinner.”

Styling The Cutout Floral Dress with Amanda Oleri

Growing up just outside of NYC, Amanda Oleri (@eastcoastfox) was introduced at a young age to the culture, fashion and pace of the city –  an energy that still influences her unique style (an effortless mix of trendy, modern and bohemian) today.

These days, you’ll most often find the founder of lifestyle destination East Coast Fox exploring her Brooklyn neighborhood, jet-setting to her next spontaneous escape destination, or updating the blog with her latest style tips and adventures.

We asked Amanda to style this ultra-feminine floral dress (with some eye-catching cutouts), and she gave it her signature NYC spin by pairing it with these bright-white high tops – because, as she puts it, “you can’t walk the city in heels!” The combo of flirty florals and sporty sneakers makes for an effortless, throw-on-and-go look.

Check out Amanda’s full look below…

Amanda on the inspiration behind her look:
“A cute floral dress is all you need ATM. Lucky for you, I’ve got one right here. And don’t be silly, it’s not your average floral dress – this baby is a head-turner. Between the sweet little cutouts on the side and the keyhole in the front, it’s the perfect blend of flirty and cute.”

Make it your own: styling the Flat-Front Short with Sarunyu Nadee

Meet Sarunyu Nadee. An LA-based content creator, Sarunyu shares his cool Cali lifestyle on his Instagram, @godofcloudz, which features everything from his love of coffee to the sleek design and architecture that inspire him — all with a modern, minimalist aesthetic.

Sarunyu is a strong believer in the power of positive energy in making goals achievable and amazing feats possible. That vibe definitely resonates on his Instagram feed. And what’s NOT to love about that?

Check out Sarunyu’s look below…

What inspired Sarunyu’s look:

Sarunyu uses a ton of black, white and grey as the base for his modern, laid-back wadrobe, making it easy to mix, match and add in color and prints as he goes.

For this look, Sarunyu styled our Extreme Flex Flat Front Short in black (the 9″ inseam hits just above the knee) with a simple white graphic tee, a black denim jacket with distressed details, and a fresh pair of bright-white sneaks. We’re digging the combination of modern-monochrome and lived-in destruction — gives the whole look an athleisure-meets-streetwear tone.
