About the influencers (from left to right):

  • Kate Lazarski, Detroit fashion and lifestyle Instagram influencer and retail real estate agent, Instagram:  @hautemesss
    What she loves about summer and her style:
    my personal style is always evolving, yet I love to stick with timeless basics. Summer is my favorite season to dress because I can throw on a lightweight dress, romper or simple shorts and top without thinking twice about comfort and style.

    What she loves about summer and her style: A bit of Glam/Romantic when it comes to my style and  favorite part about summer is more opportunities to travel with my family.

  • Ashley Robinson, Fashion/mommy lifestyle blogger and stylist at Tender in Birmingham. Instagram- @sothentherewere3
    What she loves about summer and her style:  I dress to make myself feel fabulous. No rules, not a certain style just me. I dress to how I feel. I dress to my moods, and it doesn’t have to be what’s in style at the moment. My style is a reflection of how I feel. And that’s how I stay true to myself and stay authentic. Best summer moments are putting on a flowy Romantic dress and having a perfect glass of rose. FAV.
