I love this look because it’s so effortless, yet so chic. The dress is my new summer favorite. When I bought it, the women at the counter said this could be styled in so many ways, and I wasn’t sure because the print is a little bold, but now that I’ve had it for a couple months, I totally agree with her. I have gotten so much use out of it because unlike some styles of print which need to paired with very specific pieces, this dress can go with anything. Plus it doesn’t hurt that it’s so easy to wear. The fabric is really soft, and there’s no frills in putting on; just slip on and tie the bow.

From the moment I spotted these shoes, I was in love. I’ve been wanting a pair of Soludos for a while now, and finally caved and got a classic pair, with black leather tops. They are going to be the best summer staple. I have so many ideas as to how I want to style them, and I love that they can be worn for all sorts of different occasions, whether it be work, or brunch, or summer cocktail hour.

The combination of the dress and the espadrilles is just so fun. I’ve been wearing the dress with mostly lighter shoes to bring out the soft pattern and colors, but it really pops in an unexpected way with the contrast of dark hues, especially black. It’s so exciting to have clothes that are go to, and I am convinced that both these pieces will get tons of wear the rest of the summer and well into fall.
