Floral Dress + Messy Hair

As I can imagine Miranda Priestly would say, "A floral dress for summer? Groundbreaking...," but there's just something about this frock from Topshop that I couldn't resist. Maybe it's the fact that the chintz print reminds me of something I might have found at my grandmother's house, or that the asymmetrical hem makes it ever-so-slightly insouciant, but either way, I did my best French girl impression by wearing it minimally with black sunglasses, easy (albeit frilled) slides and unbrushed bedhead.

Not-So-Girly Pearls

The perfect pair of statement denim for when you’re feeling a little bit *extra* on a Saturday, but you still want the comfort of your mom jeans. On weekends, I like to wear them as I’ve styled them here, but for a work event, I’ll pair them with a black turtleneck, quilted clutch and sky-high stilettos for a look that is polished with an editorial touch.

How I Style A Wrap Dress for Summer

There's nothing I love more than an easy summer dress. This vividly-hued one by DVF feels lighter than air, and I can't help but feel like I'm getting away with wearing my robe outside of my bedroom each time I put it on - it's that comfortable. With a dress that has a price point like this one (neither inexpensive nor entirely bank-breaking), the Cost Per Wear formula definitely comes into play, and I love that this can be worn with flat sandals and a bucket bag while traipsing about a new city or brunching with friends, or else dressed up with a clutch and statement heels (preferably of the tasseled variety) for one of the innumerous  summer weddings we all seem to have on our social calendars this time of year.

All Black Weekend Wear

Anna Wintour may be against head-to-toe black, but on some occasions, it just feels right. I loved these unique culottes from Club Monaco, but needed to style them with a sky high heels. While I’d love to be one of those girls who can pull off wide cropped pants paired with Stan Smiths, it’s just about the least flattering silhouette for my frame. I also swapped my black bucket bag for a woven clutch just before leaving the house, which added a bit of texture to the otherwise monochrome ensemble, making the whole look feel slightly less severe.

Summer Ruffles

Is there anything better than summertime style? After months of layering all winter long, all I want to wear right now is pretty dresses - the flouncier the better - and colourful, easy slides. I have a pretty busy few months ahead, so I'm savouring every moment of downtime I get with a glass of rosé and a good book. Right now, I'm finishing up Katie Kitamura's A Separation and am eager to find my next summer read - please send any and all recommendations my way!
