Dorothy Perkins Black Aztec Crossover Dress

Dorothy Perkins Black Aztec Crossover Dress

There are few pieces more versatile than a wrap dress; they can just be worn so many different ways! I’m currently loving this one by Dorothy Perkins, and I’m learning to find there isn’t a thing yet I don’t love from this label. The poly fabric on this dress features an Aztec-inspired zig-zag pattern which is broken up by a skinny brown belt. I’m headed to NYC this weekend for the annual BlogHer conference and this dress would be absolutely perfect to wear paired with a classic blazer or denim jacket, crossbody purse, and sandals, chic enough for those long conference days and even longer nights. Too late to order it now, but it’ll definitely work for countless other occasions working well into fall. How cute would this be with tights and tall brown boots? Am I right?

Coral & Cocoa Large Stripe Top

Coral & Cocoa Large Stripe Top

Forever 21 hits it out of the park, yet again, with a trendy piece at a great price point. This polyester cap sleeve top is nails the colorblock trend to a T – mixing a neutral dusty cocoa with a vibrant pop of coral pink.  The loose fit and large stripes are somewhat relaxed, yet still so chic. A wonderful piece that will work season-round.

Parker Tie Front Maxi Dress in Coral Zig Zag

Parker Tie Front Maxi Dress in Coral Zig Zag

There’s nothing quite like a printed maxi dress that exudes boho chic. I adore this one from Parker in an organic zig zag print incorporating shades of coral, brown, off white and cobalt. This dress made of 100% silk features an adorable neck tie detail and elasticated waist, which give the bohemian frock a finished look. I’d love to see this rocked with bangles, a headband and summery loose waves. Very much à la Nicole Richie or Vanessa Hudgens!

Steve Madden Bethany Sandal

Steve Madden Bethany Sandal

 

Summer is around the corner (lucky for you school kids and grads already enjoying vacation) and I’ve found just the right go-to minimalistic sandal for me. The Bethany Sandal by Steve Madden comes in a sandy brown leather with raw edges and seems like the perfect style to wear with classic summer cutoffs & a tee. I love the cross straps and buckle around the ankle which give it a finished, but still easy-going, look. These are perfect for the days when you want to go romp around in the sun, not deliberate indoors over what you’re going to wear.

Nicole Miller African Oblong Scarf

Nicole Miller African Oblong Scarf

Something about this scarf stopped me immediately in my websurfing tracks. Maybe it’s that I have a need for more color in my drab winter wardrobe? Or perhaps it’s my obsession with scarves in general? This 100% silk scarf from Nicole Miller is just the right part geometric and the right part abstract. I say that because flattened out or folded strategically in a certain way, it appears very symmetrical and exact, whereas looped around the neck and tied in a knot, it appears very complex and intricate. Slightly reminiscent of a traditional African kente cloth, I absolutely love the bright pops of magenta, pale pink, marigold, and cornflower blue. I guarantee this is a scarf you’ll receive compliments on and an endless begging of the question, “where did you get that at?”
