Three outfits for summer from the stylist and blogger

Columbus fashion guest blogger Molly Martin is a stylist for a national retailer and blogger onLovely + Rust.

Summer is my favorite season for clothes. Don't get me wrong, I love boots more than just about anything... and leather jackets... and big, cozy sweaters; however, I feel most myself in the laid back styles of summer. June through August you will find me in a maxi dress or vintage skirt, channeling my inner hippie.

Date Night

For me, a date night outfit often begins with wedges or heels because every other day I'm in flat sandals. I wore this Saturday night to Harvest Pizza/Curio (our first time there, and one of our new favorite spots).

(Two little side notes: First, I didn't realize I was so pale-I need some sun on those arms! Second, I don't love having my picture taken, so a big thank you to my husband for putting up with my complaints and being my photographer!)
