For those of you who don't know, Camille Styles is dedicated to bringing creativity, inspiration and stress-free style to their readers around the globe. We are huge fans of the Camille Styles team's notable work (hint, hint: just take a look at our 'notable sites' side bar), as well as, the sizzlin' season of summer! So it only seemed perfect that Camille herself was just as head over heels with summer as we were! When asking Camille what she loved most about this time of year, it was clear to us, she knew exactly how to live a summer of style! "Since my entire entertaining philosophy centers around creative, stress-free planning, summer is my very favorite time of year! Throw on an easy dress, go barefoot, gather bunches of herbs from the garden for a table centerpiece, and invite friends to hang out by the grill and pitch in with the cooking" said Camille. Let's just say we are inspired by Camille's chic + unique interpretation of entertaining, to say the least. "Summer's all about simplicity - planning a menu around the abundant seasonal produce at the farmers market, pouring chilled glasses of prosecco and embracing the longer nights. I love everything about it!" Wow, who knew taking on the simplistic side of summer entertaining could be so fresh? As it just so happens, we forgot to ask Camille when and where this fiesta is happening - we're dying to attend! ;)
As followers of the Camille Styles site, we were thrilled at the opportunity to have learned more about Camille's summer style + how she gets to work with such a fun, creative team! "They (her team) never fail to inspire me! Life is too short to not be having fun every day, and collaborating with creative people who I love hanging out with makes work a blast" Camille tells us. Just check out their adorably creative 'see us in action' team video, it screams fabulous! Oh, and how could we forget ... Not only is Camille wonderfully fashionable in all aspects of life, but did we mention she has a baby on the way? "Since I'm 7 months pregnant, I'm definitely embracing the maxi dress this season. Add a pair of flat sandals, great necklace and my Celine tote and I'm out the door," Camille says when asked about her go-to summer outfit. Talk about a lady who can do it all ... in a note worthy, mommy-to-be fashion!

Happy First Day of Summer! We hope you enjoy!

Looking for a Summer Vacation spot?
Here's what Camille recommends ...
"Capri, Positano or anywhere else on the Amalfi Coast...
the perfect combination of glamour, mediterranean
beauty + the best mozzarella on the planet."
Looking for a summer dish for entertaining?
Here's what Camille recommends...
"I'm a big fan of fresh, colorful salads for summer dinner parties.
They can be served family-style and don't require me to slave over a
hot stove. A few of my favorites are grilled panzanella;
