Since I’ve moved back down South, I’ve seen my style move towards brighter colors and away from my black/navy Rag & Bone uniform in Manhattan. I’m opting for color, print, and breezy silhouettes regardless of the season. And with Summer right on the horizon, my gravitation towards all things bright has gotten even stronger. Enter this Carolina K dress that feels like a drop of sunshine. With a full tiered skirt, I’ve worn it as a sundress (as shown), AND thrown a sweater over it to wear as a skirt to work. I’m all about flexibility in my garments these days. I can’t wait to wear this all Summer as a part II to my Lemonade-inspired look!
Eyelet is one of those fabrics that just gets me every time. It has a girly quality to it that I think is so pretty in white or pastel shades for Spring and Summer. This year, I found the cutest eyelet dress from H&M that I thought looked much more expensive than the actual price tag. I caught it on sale, and thought it was so cute that I actually got it in both black and white! While the dress might be sold out online, it can still be found in stores, so don’t be discouraged if you like this look. As shown, I recently wore it with lace-up Loeffler Randall heels and my Dior clutch. I didn’t photograph it in black, but believe me…it’s just as cute!
When you hear the word “suit,” it can sometimes inspire thoughts of dull work-wear. Well, I’m here to tell you that doesn’t have to be the case! Matching blazers and trousers in a fun print can turn an ordinary suit into a full-on fashion look. For my Summer suit, I opted for a bold stripe in a neutral/white combo. I’ve worn this with a black bodysuit underneath (as shown), a plain white tee, and I can’t wait to wear it with a rock n’ roll band tee next. Wear your suit with heels for a more elevated look, or keep it casual with some slides. I threw on my favorite leopard pair, courtesy of J.Crew. What do you dolls think? Would you rock a bold suit for Summer?
