  11. I love summer because I'm a sunny person. I'm born in August and I live near the sea- I can't live without hot summer sun, summer night sky covered with stars, the beach and the blue sea and summer rain- warm and refreshing drops of water pouring from the sky and making you dance under them. I can't imagine my life without sun and summer. I love waking up in the morning from the warm sun rays and knowing that wonderful, sunny day is ahead of me. This make me start my day with a smile...
    Of course I like summer and because of the fashion- the lightweight fabrics, the bright colors and showing some skin :D

  52. I love your blog and the posts.Your style is amazing and so is this outfit for the giveaway.I so want it ! (Greedy me :P)
    So here it is..
    Reasons i love summer..
    Summer is my first love .I am a summer person,summer is my season !
    The long summer break we get (Here,in india,it is for 2 whole months !)..The beautiful prints and dresses i get to wear,the skirts,the shorts,the tanks and everything beautiful..
    summer is beautiful,the colors it bring with itself are amazing and so easy to fall for.I love that i get to wear what i want without thinking much about the weather outside.Also,the long walks at the beaches with friends and the fun to have there.Going out with the family for get-togethers is also a reason to love it.

    Summer is the right time to sit out on your porch and simply lay there,letting the sunlight soak you.
    Sucha relaxing moment it is !

    Not to forget,the strappy footwear in all beautiful shades.
    I am a person who loves color and winter doesnt please me much.

    How could i forget!..Being a picturemaniac,i love clicking pictures and for that,i love the summer light..the natural light gives me a chance to capture the nature's grace really well!
    And it somehow even embraces my outfits :P

    While writing this,i so miss summer and the summer break,its winter here in india. :(

    Here's my

    And girl,you're amazing ;)

  53. love this outfit (and your super hot wedges too!), it's so cute and fresh!

    I love summer for the feeling it always brings - a feeling of being young, of having the freedom to do whatever you feel like, to be more daring and adventurous, and to enjoy things like warm sunshine, beaches, holidays, the sound of cicadas, and lots of bright colours!

    my email is, thanks for the opportunity to enter! :)

  55. just so pretty! (:

  56. i love it!

  57. thank you for commenting on my blog. it helped me find your blog and this giveaway.

    I like summer because life seems to get a bit easier. I'm off of school, the weather calls for lighter and brighter clothing. I can experiment more - with both clothing and life. Its the time to make things happen

  58. What a cute and girly outfit! I love it! I wish it was summer here as well... instead it's snowing outside for a third day in a roll ...

    Thanks so much for the sweet comment on my blog :)


  59. Cute outfit. I love that skirt with the heels! Love your blog!


  60. I seriously want to raid your shoe collection, and take it all home...every single pair of gorgeousness :)


  61. Gorgeous outfit, I especially love the hot pink wedges!!!


  62. Wow! I love that skirt on you... and you paired it beautifully with those shoes!

  63. did everything! i love summer because it's time i can take out for myself to really just relax and explore more about me and fashion and my love for it!

  64. amaaaaaazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  65. I have liked Vamastyle on Facebook :]

    I have liked Michelle's Style File on Facebook

    I love summer because not only do I not have classes, but I get to have mini adventures with my free time. I also have alot more time to work on DIY pieces and my blog. Plus I was born in the summer. The clothes are also a HUGE reason!

  66. I love summer because of the holidays that fall within its parameters...Memorial Day, [the beginning of summer here in the USA], Father's Day, Independence Day [USA],and lastly, Labor Day [the official ending of summer, here] Did you know ...that August [here], is the only month that doesn't have a holiday? So we invented one! it called the "Summer Lovin' Holiday"!! You MUST BE NEAR A BODY OF WATER for this celebration - [pools are acceptable]!! But a swim party with a barbecue is an explicit necessity! I LOVE SUMMER because it's HOT here in the desert, and I'm a hardcore desert rat! I LOVE 110 F degrees! [when it gets down to 80 F degrees, I have to wear a jacket!] My email address is: Love and Peace to you and yours... Cheree

  67. i love your Vama Style blog piece! and i LOVE Summer because the days are longer and warmer, fresh air through my house at night, the beach and sun, and being able to wear a dress with strappy shoes. Summer makes me feel good!

  68. You look so very pretty! Those shoes are wonderful too. And I liked them on facebook! I love summer because I love going to carnivals!

  69. That skirt is incredible!! I am enamored with it.

    I love summer because it always has an air of nostalgia. So many memories are made when the weather is balmy. All things are new. The scent in the air is intoxicating. I love the sound of children playing and bees buzzing about. Summer is the season to be happy and carefree. To let your hair blow in the wind and feel the warmth of the sun on your freckled skin. The trees and flowers never look so alive. They look as if they are singing and dancing when they sway in the breeze. Ice cream with sprinkles drip down the cone and you smile because you know the sun barely sets in summer. There is nothing like summer. Just typing this makes me long for the warmth.



  70. oh my goodness - had no clue this store existed! so many pretty things. summer is my favorite - i love being all brown sugared up and the option to wear skirts, shorts, dresses...endless options!

  71. did all of the requirements!
    I love summer because I can wear cute skirts & dresses that show off my legs (:

  72. LOVE this outfit! Especially the shoes. Super cute. Maybe I'll enter!! :)

  74. i like both fb as yuki kuran
    my fav thing about summer is shorts!
    irinasas at yahoo dot com

  75. ah such a pretty outfit *-*

    i love summer because of the salty ocean breeze, sweet ripe watermelon slices, warm sunny days, hanging out with friends, the fact that i get to bring out my sunhats, crop tops, flip flops, and bikinis, and especially because during this 3 month period, time just seems to slow down and go on for eternity while everyone has fun going on their little adventures. ^-^

  76. Oh, I want everything from this store. It's so amazing, and you look great in it!

    I love summer- because who doesn't love a season associated with holidays? While England doesn't really get the kind of weather that warrants a day by the pool, I've always been lucky enough to spend a week or two in the sun. I have the best memories ever of summer holidays. And of course, summer styles are such a breath of fresh air after all the wintery hues. Summer Rocks!!

    I completed the steps :) My email is

  77. love the outfit (: and i luve summer because i'm a short girl and in summer i can use shorts more often and i don't use it because i hace nice leg i use it because they make me look taller and i luv the summer sun and the tan..

  96. What an amazing giveaway this outfit is Summer perfect.
    Why do I love Summer!! way too many reasons but mostly because I get to wear all my mini-skirts and shorts all day long...LOVE IT.

    <3 Marina

  97. Ahhh such an exciting giveaway!

    Summer. Why do I LOVE summer? I love summer for trillions of reasons. First of all, warm weather! I live in Chicago and its more Windy/Wintery here than warm. So I enjoy EVERY since summer/warm weather I can get. Wearing cute summer outfits, I love preparing for summer. During the winter I prepare myself with outfits for the summer by clearance shopping (I always find good deals). I feel like summer, is just a season of opportunities for me. No Stress from school and that means more opportunities to try new things! For example this past summer I got my first real job, I felt so independent I loved it! Plus summer has great weather to take pics!

    There are so many other reasons why I love summer, but for now these willl do.

    Love, Diana

    I love summer because of many things; ice creams,watermelons,summer dresses,colourful outfits,straw hat,swimming,beach,and the euphoria! <3

  110. Oh my gosh count me in! The outfit is gorgeous.

    I love summer for the same reason I love the holiday season in the winter--they're something magical there waiting to happen. Summer is all about the heat, the break between the business of life during the rest of the year, and of course to wear light, pretty clothes.

  111. I love summer because I hate cold!! I need colors, swimming pools and ice cream!

  112. Go to the beach and build a castle,
    Or you and your friend in the sand can wrassle.
    Lie on the green grass, make a chain with a daisy
    If you don't like summer you must be crazy©

  116. This outfit looks absolutely gorgeous and would be perfect for our hot Singapore weather.

    I love summer for the long days, the endless sunshine and the uplighting feeling that comes with warm weather, clear skies and the sun on your skin. I suppose that's why I love Singapore so much - summer all year round!
