Cute Summer Clothes

I am in the market for some new clothes. Although I am trying to get into a regular exercise routine to lose this weight that I’ve had since Lucy was born, I’m also coming to grips with the fact that I might need to get some clothes that I can feel good in (or as close to good as I can get) until I really start losing the weight.

One style I really like is ruching. I think it’s an easy way to slim a person down, whether it’s on the side of an article of clothing or in the middle. I’m always looking for new places to shop since I feel like my options are limited at my usual stores, and I was pleased when I checked out Spiegel’s website and a couple of dresses immediately caught my eye: the Ruched Sleeveless Dress and the One-Shoulder Goddess Dress.

The ruching on the first dress looks like it would be pretty flattering on the sides, and I love the one-shoulder dress. I always admire those styles when I see them on TV, and I think the band around the middle might flatter the stomach area. And what’s better? They’re on sale!

Spiegel also has some summer tops on sale, and I like this Equestrian-Print Tunic. I think it would be super cute with leggings! Plus, I love all the bright colors. My husband always tells me I have too much black, gray and brown in my closet (did you notice I picked those colors in the dresses??), so I think this is something that he would love to see on me.

Check out and let me know what clothing items are your favorite for the summer. Come back and tell me in the comments!

  1. That tunic is gorgeous! I used to love Spiegel… I even have some silk curtains I’d bought from them 15+ years ago, and they still look awesome. For some reason, I’ve forgotten all about them in the past few years. Thanks for the reminder they’re a great company to shop with!
