Summer Fashion Favorites

Hi friends! Happy Tuesday.

I know I normally post a new recipe on Tuesday, but I’m switching it up today to help co-host a fun Fashion linkup called Turning Heads Tuesday!  I stumbled upon Jess’s blog, Elegantly Dressed and Stylish a few weeks ago through the linkup and enjoy her classic, yet vintage style!  Her looks are perfect for any age.  She has different guest co-hosts on the her linkup every week and when she asked me, I knew I had to say yes!

For those of you on Running in a Skirt for the first time today from Jess’s site, welcome!

I’d love for you to learn a little more about my site HERE and about me HERE.  The short story is I’m a former local news meteorologist in Asheville, NC.  I left my career in TV news to pursue a healthier lifestyle with more balance and this site follows that journey.  My blog features fitness ideas, new mouth-watering (mostly healthy) recipes, every-day fashion, travel adventures and lots of fun too.

Yum…. Clean Eating Blueberry Crisp….


I’m launching a super awesome (yes, that’s a thing in my world) site re-design next Monday that reflects all of this fabulousness a little better and would LOVE for you to come and check it out.  Make sure you leave a comment below so I know you were here and can “meet” you!

I know some of my regular readers who are bloggers, post about fashion too!  Feel free to link up to three fashion posts (old or new) for some extra exposure today to some new bloggers.

With the summer fashion season wrapping up, I thought I’d go back and look at my top five favorite outfits of the summer.  I’m a huge fan of summer dresses and basically live in them in the summer, so my summer style definitely reflects that!

Here we go….

5. Pink Board Shorts

I hate wearing tight and hot shorts in the summer, but these light linen ones are simply perfection!


4. Navy White Dress

I got this dress to wear to a outdoor wedding in July and it worked perfectly.  I love the pink accessories with it.


3. Black & White Floral Dress

Classic Black & White ensembles are another big theme in my closet.  I love this light linen floral print for the season.  The longer length was perfect for my husbands outdoor work event at Barnsley Gardens in Georgia.


2. Must Have Summer Jewelry

The right jewelry can complete any look!  My favorite jewelry store in Asheville, Jewels That Dance set me up with these gorgeous pieces.  The turquoise is the perfect contrast to the orange.


1. Denim Vest with Sunflowers

Sometimes I’m just a big flower loving kid!  I stumbled upon these perfect sunflowers at the Biltmore Estate and just happened to be wearing the perfect outfit to “match” them.  Sometimes your surroundings really make the best accessories!

So without further ado, let’s get to the linkup!

Regularly scheduled blog posts will return tomorrow!  I’m continuing my recap of my recent trip to Elbow Cay in the Bahamas.  Find out what happened AFTER the Hubs flew us there himself!  And I promise a fabulous recipe on Thursday.

    Loved reading your bio page, Julie. Sounds like we have a lot in common. I’m an Emmy-Award winning TV News anchor from Chicago who stepped away from the business years ago to create a better quality of life for my then infant daughter. I won’t ramble on anymore but please do stop by my website –

    Love all your looks in this post, especially the navy and white striped dress. So pretty!

      Hi Mary! I’m so glad we connected! It sound like we have a lot in common. Your pictures on your site or gorgeous!

    You know I love me my maxi dresses (with compression beneath, obviously)

    I bought my first jean jacket this summer and have been absolutely living in it. It’s perfect for the cool summer nights – so I love the vest as an option for the day time!!

    You didn’t mention it, but I’m loving that maxi dress on you!

    Love the fashion link up! I wish I were more of a fashionista, but too much of my life (and budget) is spent with athletic apparel. I love that navy and white dress! It looks beautiful!

    • JulieWunder August 26, 2015 at 9:30 pm - Reply

      Haha! I need more athletic apparel in my life! I always go for the dress and end up wearing the same workout clothes all the time!

    I still need those pink board shorts in my life. So cute!

    • JulieWunder August 26, 2015 at 9:29 pm - Reply

      Totally! I think they will be around for many years to come!

    That navy and white dress is my absolute favorite! I like this link-up idea. I’m so bad with remembering about link-ups though, so hopefully I can remember this for next week! haha

      It’s a fun linkup! I post my Friday outfit every week. I’m just co-hosting for the week! I’ll be back to Tuesday recipes soon 🙂
