Since Sally Steele is a wealth of information in the fashion department—I mean the girl has “a guy” everywhere in Chicago from Intermix to Neimans to more—so I’ve decided to turn to her to share her take on all things summer fun with “Sally Says: What to Wear to a Summer BBQ”. With the Fourth of July rapidly approaching and summer in full swing, our girl is sharing her take on a variety of summer styles, which look to be extra adorable and seem to fit in rather well with the The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (proof below).

Sally Says: What To Wear to a Summer BBQ

Ok so, summer BBQ style. I chose three outfits, one being more realistic than the others, but all cute for different occasions. As you can see, this year I partied away at Lisa Rinna’s BBQ. We had a great time and Harry made a rhubarb pie- it was fantastic. I mean fantastical because that never happened. However, my Photoshop classes seem to be paying off! Going from Left to Right:

So for the first look- With a little Rosie the Riveter inspiration, I paired my favorite boyfriend shorts with a chambray top and white Birkenstocks. Add a touch of glam with a Gucci monogram belt and then the final patriotic flair with a hot pink bandana as a headband. Love this look- it’s so comfortable and perfect for when it becomes cooler later in the evening. Tie the front or tuck it in, or wear a basic blank tank underneath to stay cool and add a layer.

For the second look, I paired a frilly, flirty, festive dress with distressed sneakers. Worn with a half-up top knot and cherry red lipgloss, it was a little dressed up, but mostly dressed down. Not unlike Erika Jayne’s Moschino T-Shirt dress she wore to Dorit’s birthday buddha bash. I LOVE this dress and can’t wait to wear it over and over!

Finally, I paired a great bell sleeve striped top with a classic white jean, flatform espadrilles and my favorite blue Celine trio to match the shoes. This is a Southern Charm boat party and Real Housewives vacation disaster inspired look that is comfortable. Beware of war wounds of spilled thrown wine with these white pants, but if you behave yourself you’ll be fine.
