Inspired Fashion: Gelato

The summer is heating up, and the hotter it gets the more I crave...gelato! No other sweet treat delights the senses like the fresh flavors and bright colors of gelato. Of course, nobody does gelato like Italy does gelato.

Unfortunately, a $2,000 plane ticket stands between me and my favorite frozen treat, but that won't stop me from translating the refreshing, colorful fun of gelato into a playful summer outfit!

Gelato Look

What inspired me to create this outfit was the giddy, child-like excitement you get when you walk into an italian Gelateria! Simple stripes and high wasted shorts are made playful by bright, candy colored jewelry, nail polish and a big bow for your hair! To keep it from going too girly I added a menswear style saddle bag and a simple pair of cut out flats.

I hope you enjoyed this post! How are you doing beating the heat this summer? While real Italian gelato is a little out of my reach I have been relying of lots of fro-yo to keep me cool ;) What's your favorite summer treat?
