Our summer is brutal in Texas this year. We’ve been in the 100’s for weeks, plus it feels like 110+. I am not one to stay indoors (and my toddler won’t allow that!), so cute fashion that keeps me cool is a must.
I had the very special opportunity to be a model for an online boutique, B’in Gruene, that is headquartered in New Braunfels. Once a thriving brick and mortar in Gruene, they now cater to beyond our little town through their online shop and this special VIP Group. (Go join now for the hottest deals!)

Here are ten hot, summer fashion pieces to keep you cool this season:
This Summer Lovin top is so cute! I always love anything with pink and teal. It would pair perfectly with jeans, too!
I Think I Love You dress is perfect for Spring, Summer and even stepping into the fall. The material is rayon, and it is airy and super comfortable.
I love this soft blue tee! Til The End’s sleeves are a great length and the tie detail is super flattering.
Laughter In The Rain was a lovely surprise for me! I generally wouldn’t have gone for this print, but I absolutely loved this dress. It is a really soft polyester material with pockets. Purple is always a lovely color on my skin, too.
Speaking of surprises, this Passion Fruit Tie-Dye top was another one. I normally don’t do tie-dye of any kind, I avoid trends like the cold sholder and I’m not a fan of the cut. I didn’t even consider trying it but one of the other models convinced me. But I was sooooo wrong!! I love how fun this top is and the pop of color. Just another proven point to my post all about trying clothes outside of your comfort zone.
Hooked on a Feeling is a fun dress that can be worn like I am pictured, or off-the-shoulder. I love that all the B’in Gruene dresses are flattering and comfortable! Perfect for the hot Texas summer.
I disagree with a lot of common fashion claims: no white after Labor Day, wearing what someone deems as age appropriate, and curvy girls shouldn’t wear stripes. I LOVE this striped shirt, it is so cute! And the tie-sleeve is such a great touch.
The Joker is a fun summer dress that can be worn with our without leggings. The print is perfect for hiding any imperfections!
I love that most of B’in Gruene’s tops come with sleeves! Sea Breeze’s cut is unique with large slits on the side. Perfect with shorts in the summer and leggings in the fall. And I’d love to pair it with a fun, bright pink lipstick too!
While this top is way too hot for me in Texas, I love it for the Spring/Fall. It is great for anyone that works indoors or lives up north in a cooler climate. It is just the perfect amount of girly!
Y’all, it was such a fabulous evening. Playing dress up with these beautiful girls, bonding with Lacey of Lucky Locket Photography and getting to know Melissa, the owner of B’in Gruene, made this the perfect evening. Oh, and shopping after!!
Girls, if you ever feel lacking in the confidence area, go out to a local boutique and just try on everything. Snap photos of yourself in the dressing room (or bring a friend!) and bask in the beauty of YOU.
What’s your favorite online boutique?? I love shopping so hit me up with your favs!
