Maxi dresses are my fave thing to throw on in the summer to stay cool and cute! This one is by Vince Camuto (I’m beginning to love his pieces more and more) and I got it for a steal at Nordstrom Rack. I thought the different scaled diagonal stripes added more interest to it than just regular horizontal stripes that are commonly printed on maxis.
What I love about this dress is the fact that it’s double layered but still lightweight – meaning that it keeps me from getting too hot, but it’s very flattering since it doesn’t show every curve, lump and bump, lol! Plus, the hem is higher in the front which is great for us shorter girls that would typically trip over it when not wearing heels or wedges.

What are your fave summer pieces?
Once we got this linen camo tank in at my job I knew I had to get it! Lightweight and trendy, it’s perfect for any summer wardrobe. I paired it with a couple of other currently “in” items: my kimono cardigan, boyfriend jeans and some leather strappy wedges.
My kimono cardigan is super comfy and versatile- I can throw on over a bodycon dress or a t-shirt with distressed shorts, too, for other cute looks. It’s a great layering piece to have especially in the summer when it’s too hot to wear a heavier jacket, but too cold indoors at work to not have on anything covering my arms!

Happy Humpy Day!
Took a summertime stroll downtown with my boyfriend in my new favorite tube skirt! This navy & cream striped piece is by Vince Camuto and I paired it with my light wash chambray button up, a faux leopard print belt with a chunky jeweled statement necklace.
I love stripes, but I have to be careful wearing a striped bottom since I’m a pear shape and it could make my lower half look wider. When I do choose to wear stripes, they’re always more narrow and smaller in scale!
This look would be great for a casual luncheon or day date. The key to mixing these different elements (the leopard print, the stripes, chambray and jewels) is keeping the accessories relatively simple. Thinking outside of the box is fun, but you don’t want to go overboard with accents for this kind of look as it might look too busy. I threw on some minimal nude strappy heels to balance out the classiness of the necklace and to dress the look up a bit. For relief from the pain of these heels (lol), I slipped on some brown leather open-toed flats.

Hope you’re having a great Monday!
Been having so much fun sightseeing, shopping and eating this weekend in DC! It’s always nice to get away from it all and do something new. It was in the mid-60s yesterday so I was able to get away with some layering pieces instead of throwing on a coat. I picked up these wedges late last year for a steal and I finally was able to wear them! I love the gold zipper detail up the back and the overall funky design. These new olive colored high-waisted pants are already some of my favorites because of their style and comfort. Though they’re an odd color, I feel like I can pair them with a good amount of the pieces I already have in my closet!
