One of my absolute favorite types of outfits to wear is a breezy dress with flat sandals and a cross-body bag. Easy, comfortable and with a million opportunities for variation. I love this dress by Joie because the silhouette is forgiving yet sexy and paired with clogs it is on trend yet natural, not at all as if you’re trying too hard. I can see the whole outfit paired with a topknot.

I am seriously impressed with Christopher Kane’s prints, which are like wearable art. I love his use of clouds to reveal multiple dramatic colors. I especially dig his atomic t-shirt. What do you think?!

When I lived in New York, my wardrobe consisted mainly of black, gray and dark blues. Now that I’m back in California, I’m relishing wearing bright and cheerful colors again.

If I had $1500 to spend now, this is what I’d buy. Philip Lim’s cashmere and silk sweater is soft and elegant with modern, cool details while the butterfly shorts are trendy with a retro silhouette. The Persol sunglasses fold in the center and stems and the Foley & Corinna purse is the perfect color for spring, summer and fall. Hello weekend!

When I think of summer dressing, I think of light and airy, with touches of gold and sea blues. I adore the breeziness of this Joie dress, especially when contrasted with this colorful Ikat bag. The best outfits tend to be a mix of high and low, vintage and new. (Note: “high” to me is a $250 dress. Anything couture I’ll probably just call “the unaffordable” or “the dream on”.)
