Romantic Mini

I’m attracted to all things tuxedo. Tuxedo pants, blazers, formal shirts, and now…this dress! This flirty mini dress from Zimmermann appears to be a beautiful eyelet lace mini. However, upon a closer look, you can see touches of a traditional tuxedo that make this dress extra special. I love the black ribbon detailing, the ruffle bib, and the pearl buttons. What makes this dress irresistible to me? The sweet scalloped edges around the eyelet lace. The sleeves and hem are absolutely stunning! I wore this look on a Summer trip to Florida with the family, but I also can’t wait to style up this look with a small evening back and heeled sandals.

The Best Straw Hats for Summer

A straw hat is the easiest way to make an outfit instantly feel like Summer! It’s the perfect accessory that combines functionality with style. Block those rays and add a cute pop of color or polish to any warm-weather look. While I definitely have a favorite in my closet, I recently purchased a new one to freshen my looks and add a girly touch. Here are my picks for the best Summer hats of 2021. 

Eric Javits Boater: My straw hat staple! I’ve had this hat for years and it continues to be my absolute favorite. It goes with everything! While the price tag might seem hefty, it’s more than paid for itself over the years. 

Eugenia Kim: A new add to my collection. I love the girly blush ribbon which gives me total Bridgerton vibes!

CUYANAA classic shape and color combination. This is a staple to have in any Summer wardrobe.

Artesano: I can’t say enough about the beautiful hats from this brand. I love the idea of having a pop of color like the pink and the blue, but I also love the all-ivory. So chic!


Summer Gingham

Isn’t it funny how certain patterns can just evoke the feeling of a season? For instance, as soon as I see tartan, it’s officially the holidays! Well, gingham is another pattern that immediately makes me think of Summer. Besides the typical picnic connotation, gingham can look chic and summery in a variety of colors. This year I’ve opted for this baby blue midi dress that has become my immediate go-to for travel days. The length, weight (it doesn’t feel flimsy), and the overall breezy aesthetic make it perfect for days when I want to throw on something easy. I’ve been wearing my dress for Summer outings with Elle with white, nude, and gold sandals. Maybe a picnic is in order after all!
