What Inspired Lauren’s Look:
“This fringe top is perfect to throw on while going out for a day at the beach this summer! This top is not only a cute shirt but also makes a great swimsuit coverup! I chose to wear this soft comfy fringe top over my swimsuit top and paired it with loose comfy floral shorts. This is a great go-to outfit for a hot summer day at the beach!”

What Inspired Chandler’s Look: 
“I must say, tops like this one are my jam in the summertime.  A lightweight, fringe tank top is the ultimate easy-breezy summer staple to have in your wardrobe, don’t you agree?  I wanted to play up the effortless, music festival vibe of this tank, so I added a chic, wide-brim fedora and some of my favorite lived-in sandals.  I also decided to skip the plain blue jean shorts for some white cutoffs to showcase the big white-on-white trend of this season.  This look is perfect for nearly every summer occasion you can think of, and that’s what I really love about it.”How to Wear the Fringe Muscle Tank

How to Wear the Textured Poncho with Mel Denisse

What Inspired Mel’s Look:
“My style mostly defaults towards a ‘dark and flowy’ aesthetic, which makes this textured poncho so fun to wear. Its effortlessness can make its way into almost any look, and that is a staple piece in my opinion. I paired it with some destroyed denim shorts and a black body suit as a contrast to give the poncho more room to ‘play.’ I’m looking forward to creating more looks with it throughout the summer season.”

Meet Jacy:
“Hi guys! I’m Jacy Overstreet, blogger behind Love, Lenore (my middle name, passed down through my family). I live in Missouri with my hubby and two rescue dogs, and my blog is all about everyday chic style that’s attainable for real life and real budgets. During the week I work in education PR where I have to dress up, so outside of work I love casual, laid-back pieces that allow me to show off my style in comfort!”

How to Wear the Hi-Rise Shortie with Love, Lenore

What Inspired Jacy’s Look:
“I don’t know if there’s a more iconic summer clothing item than high-rise denim shorts! They’re the epitome of classic summer cool, and can take you from the beach to a family BBQ and anywhere in between. The Denim X Hi-Rise Shortie is made with soft denim with lots of stretch for a really comfortable and flattering fit that I was so impressed with. For this look I went back to some tried and true classics to create an easy go-to summer outfit. Stripes are always a summer favorite of mine because you can mix and match them with so much, so I went with a comfortable striped tee that feels both effortless and timeless when paired with denim shorts. To top off my look I added one of my very favorite accessories – a classic straw hat – and then tied everything together with strappy sandals and a cross-body bag.”
