Two Teens And Their Mama: Summer Style Week Two

Summer Style Week Two


It's week two with my fashionable blogging friends as we share some looks from the Summer Style Challenge.  If you haven't done so yet, scroll down to enter our $200 Gap Brands gift card giveaway.  Only two days left!



A few observations from this second week:

  • I've always worn shorts during the summer months - but I think I'm becoming a dress girl.  Dresses are so comfy and cool on hot days.  Plus, they're more flattering on this well-into-its-40's body.
  • WHY is it so hard to find a kimono and palazzo pants that I like?  The pants are all too short (or as my friend Deena reminded me - I'm too tall) and end up looking like culottes, which is a definite no.  And every time I try on a kimono, I feel like Stevie Nicks twirling around on stage.


Last week it was Johnny Depp and his 80's denim vest, and now this.  Who knew fashion was so difficult?

I'm quite certain that my stylish friends have solved these problems, and are looking fabulous in their kimonos and non-culotte palazzo pants, so be sure to check out their blogs today.

  1. I love seeing you in the dresses. Nothing wrong with feeling like Stevie Nicks. She is still considered boho chic.

  2. I can't do kimonos. I'm too short! I end up looking like a poorly dressed Polly pocket. I have short people problems! I should do a blog post on that.

  3. I feel your struggle with the kimono. After 483 tries, I MAY have found one that kinda sort works, We'll see!! I haven;t worn it in public yet! I really love all of your outfits, Lana! I LOVE that Lush maxi dress!!! I have two but they didnt have that print in my store so I opted for a plain black one since I don't own one yet. I also have a black and white printed one. They are so comfy! Have a great rest of your week, my friend! XO

  5. Skirts are my favorite thing to wear in the summer. If I was tall - I would have a dozen maxi dresses. Yours is stunning! Unfortunately, they all drag about a foot on the floor and the look is sadly horrible on me! Kimonos and pilazzo pants would not work for me either! I envy your height Lana - at least you can reach your kitchen cupboards! ;)

    1. Reaching the cupboards is definitely a plus to being tall!

  6. There is just something very natural, very comfortable but put-together about the way you wear your clothes. I can certainly understand why you might be becoming a dress gal. That maxi and white denim are a great combo. I discovered yesterday that maxis can actually be cooler in this dry desert heat than shorts. Who knew?

    1. Thanks Leslie - you always say the nicest things!

  7. We have the opposite problem my friend, I look like I'm trying on Mommy's clothes...haha, I would have to cut off 5-6 inches and that usually ends up cutting off the cute part that I liked the most about the pants, so never get them. So I guess we're in the same boat, AND I love wearing dresses in the summer too! So much better than shorts in my opinion.

    1. I wonder what the perfect in between height is? Nobody's ever happy, I guess :)!

  8. LOVE that white dress on you! so so pretty! I also think you rock the maxi!
    that Stevie Nicks pic made me giggle! I feel the same in my kimono (have yet to wear it out) but one day I'll be brave

  9. Yes, yes you are too tall. But that's only because I'm jealous. Also- your hair looks the same everyday! I wish I could pull that off.

  11. Nice. I wear a lot of capris over the summer. Mainly because I forget to shave.

  13. I so agree about dresses! They are super cool and comfy. By the way, you look so pretty in both of your dresses!

  15. ha! I definitely get it about the kimono and Stevie Nicks.. although she is pretty cool!
    I'm all about dresses. I do have one or two pairs of shorts and a few skirts that I NEVER wear, but then it's dresses of varying lengths!

  16. I used to wear a lot of sundresses because they were easy to throw on and head to the beach. Now with 2 kids, I find myself in shorts more!

    1. Shorts are definitely easier with small kids, I think!

  17. You are so pretty in that white dress with the denim jacket. I just got a similar white dress from Express and I can't wait to style it and may do it similar to how you did yours.

  18. I love all your white!!! Keep looking... You'll find the perfect kimono and palazzos eventually.

  19. I still haven't found a kimono either. Sometimes being tall does have its drawbacks (hello high waters!) have you tried tall sizes from Loft? I'm pretty sure they had some palazzo type pants in tall sizes. I was able to get away with regular length with the pair I bought, but I often need tall sizes too!

    1. Hmmm... might have to give Loft a try. Thanks for the suggestion!

  21. You are rocking this challenge Lana. 5 great outfits - so cute in shorts. Love the patterned ones. My most favorite outfits though are the one with the LWD and the maxi. =)
