Maxi Tops and Kimonos for late summer

There's nothing like a fabulous duster or kimono or maxi top (whatever you wanna call them) to layer over your summer look. Whether it's over a bathing suit, a tee and denim shorts, or a cami and leggings -- they can seriously dress up any outfit from head to toe (literally!)

I got this pretty one from Target (similar here) and I've linked a bunch more below (including maternity and plus size, even though all should be pretty flowy and flexible).

Also - special note: these are so great for chestier / busty girls like me because I can just unbutton them and not worry about the size except for whether they fit my arms or shoulders. Total win!

10 year-round Fanny Packs

Yes, you heard me! Fanny packs are legit and don't tell me otherwise. I first bought this tan one from Target (similar here) when I shopped for my trip to Hawaii earlier this year. I knew we'd be jumping from activity to activity and wanted something easy, portable, and versatile. In comes the fanny pack.

The great thing about these is that they're useful year-round depending on what you're doing. Perfect for on-the-go storage and all those Atlanta United Games, concerts or events that prefer something clear. A clear jelly waist bag can be a savior!!

I've compiled some of my ultimate favorites here -- shop them below!

Ode to Summer - Dress Under $25

Summer is ending soon -- luckily it'll hold out a bit longer here in Atlanta. So I can keep my shift dresses and florals going on over the next month or so -- and by then, I'll still keep shifting and floral-ing into winter ... let's be real. I can't give up the simple cut of a shift dress and the grace of a floral print.

This pretty dress from Make Me Chic is only $24 -- and the rest of my accessories are all from Forever21, including the fabulous shoes. Scroll down for links and similar items <3
