    I have flat feet so sandals with a slight heel (no wedges or high heels) like a 1 inch or 1.5 inch bottom is perfect. If they’re cute, it’s a bonus for sure.
    6. What are your must-have summer accessory picks?
    cute sunglasses and a cute necklace is nice.

    1. Short length?
    I usually go for mid-thigh. Short enough to be cool but long enough where I don’t feel self-conscious. I also like them looser and not too tight.

    2. Distressed jeans/shorts and capris?
    It’s okay. I feel like I’m getting too old to be wearing that though, lol. That’s more a style for the younger girls.

    3. Do you enjoy heavily floral dresses and skirts?
    LOVE florals. Yes yes yes.

    4. When it comes to summer tops, what are your favorite styles?
    Lol…t-shirt? They’re comfy and easy and can go with anything.

    5. Sandal and flip-flop must-haves?
    Must-not-have. I prefer barefoot. I guess flip-flops are okay, it’s as close to barefoot as I can get sometimes.

    6. What are your must-have summer accessory picks?
    Headband to keep my hair out of my face

    7. Brightly colored bags or white and tan choices?
    I like blue. Dark blue, light blue, green-blue…any blue.

    8. Wedges?
    I don’t wear heels (for my personal safety, haha.) And personally, I think wedges are kind of ugly.

    9. Skirts and dresses or shorts and pants?
    I used to be a short/pants girl but lately, I’ve been trying to be more feminine and wear skirts and dresses. So I guess I’d say both.
