For many women, summer means that dreaded time of the year when our thigh sweat sticks to seats pretty much everywhere we go. Shorts have their time and their place- if you're going to the pool or out to a very casual bar. Here are some outfit ideas for when you want to look cute over the summer but are tired of wearing shorts.

1. Jumpsuits.


Buy a solid colored jumpsuit in a comfortable fabric. You can make this casual by wearing it with sandals and a t-shirt under it or you can dress it up by wearing short heels and jewelry.

2. The light-weight pant.


I do not mean khakis or gauchos. These could be white linen pants (if you're brave enough to wear them) or fitted black cotton pants that look great with a t-shirt tucked into them.

3. The maxi-dress.


Yes, this is always trending during the summer but think about how when you were younger, you only wanted short dresses. Now is the time to start your collection of long sundresses you can through on over a swimsuit or wear on a cute date.

4. The jeans + heel combo.


But make it summer. I always am inclined to compliment someone who is wearing a t-shirt and jeans with stilettos. If you want to really hop on the summer 2019 trends, buy neon colored heels and accessories. I recommend neon green.

5. The silk skirt.


This is a fancier option but right now it must be acknowledged. You can find them everywhere from Forever 21 to Topshop right now because this trend is on fire. These often fall at about mid-calf and can be styled with tank tops and sandals to detail a clean and classy summer look.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
