Culottes & Lace Up Sandals
I’ve been obsessed with the wide-leg & all-white trend this summer – the culottes add effortlessness and an airiness to my outfit while the white crochet cropped sweater adds a different texture. I am in love with this look because it can be taken from day to night so easily with a change of the top or the accessories. On a side note, these Schutz sandals are everything (I ordered mine from Free People here)! They have been one of my staples for summer as they match just about every outfit – I cannot wait to visit the Schutz store in New York during my October visit ❤

Silk Dresses & Slip Ons
Dresses are a must-have during the summertime, especially when you’re on the go and you don’t have time to comb through your closet to try on different outfit options! I love a silk dress for the breathability during humid days, and the print adds a touch of color to my otherwise all white ensemble (again ;)!). The beauty of this dress is it’s versatility as I took it from work to a summer wedding just last weekend. For your day look, pair a feminine but loose fitted dress with a slide sandal for a more relaxed feel, and an element of streetstyle.

Denim & Fringe
Denim is a great way for me to add some color to my otherwise neutral wardrobe (not that I mind having all neutrals :)). I was so obsessed with a denim shift dress I had bought earlier this summer, I went in and bought another version! It’s a great way to incorporate the fabric other than as a jacket or as a jean bottom – and it’s comfortable too! I paired this look with a drapey trench, and my sneakers for that off-duty look. You could also easily change the shoes for something more classic like a bootie, flat, or summer sandal as well. The bag has also been my go-to lately; I find it adds a textural element with all my outfits, plus I don’t usually change my bags too often during different seasons.
Look out for pt. 2 of my summer series!
