Summer Knit Dresses

One of the easiest things to slip on in the summer is a slinky knit dress. They’re sleek, chic, and lightweight. I’ve been gravitating toward this simple, yet classic style for the past few weeks and wanted to share a round up with my favorites. Summer Knit Dresses The one I’m wearing here is a beautiful, thick ribbed knit dress. It runs big (it’s so heavy and stretches!) so I recommend sizing down. If you’re looking for a black knit dress – look no further. This French Connection one is such good quality, and on major sale. It runs pretty true to size, and has adjustable straps which is nice if you fluctuate! This olive green knit dress is a great basic, and I am loving taupe knit dresses – particularly this one, this one and this one. How To Style A Knit Dress The great thing about them is they’re such a solid base layer. You can pair a boxy, boyfriend blazer over it and throw on a few gold chains to head to a meeting or lunch with a girlfriend. You can wear them alone with sandals to run errands, you can throw a leather jacket over it, or even a white button down blouse tied at the waist. Shop all of my knit dress picks below!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s one of the biggest sales of the year….it’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! While it doesn’t open up for everyone until July 28 (it’s sooner if you have a Nordstrom card!), I highly recommend previewing the sale like I did, and making a wish list of your favorites on their site. That way, when it does open up, you’ll be able to add anything you’ve been eyeing to your cart! Things always sell out SO quickly so you don’t want to miss out on these incredible deals. The selection this year is better than any other year, and I honestly had a hard time narrowing down my favorites for this collage. I linked a ton of other pieces below as well. Say hello to your new fall wardrobe! Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Tops + Sweaters The sweater selection is ahhhmazing in this year! This is the perfect neutral v-neck sweater, this is a staple crewneck, and how cozy is this zip up? In terms of cardigans, I love this one, this one and this one. When it comes to their shirt selection…I love a good plaid button down like this one, this floral blouse is so versatile, and I can’t get over this satin button down for under $30! Short Jackets This L’Agence blazer is a favorite of mine – and the camel tweed is divine! Definitely size down, since I’ve found them to run big. If you’re looking for a new moto or leather jacket, Nordstrom has a ton of great ones on sale. This one is a staple piece, this one is a classic black, and this one is a stunning light neutral leather. If you’re looking for a fleece/casual jacket I recommend this one, this one or this one. This is a cool green bomber jacket. And I love this quilted jacket and this sherpa jacket. Coats The coat selection is impressive this year. I’m torn between this rich brown colored coat, this light plaid coat, and this coat/cardigan. This white robe coat is so elegant, and you can’t go wrong with this classic trench either. Pants These leather trousers are a dream – and I love the look of these casual faux leather leggings. And who can resist a cashmere jogger? Skirts This little faux leather skirt comes in camel and black – why not get both?! Clearly I’m on a leather kick…because I am coveting this leather pencil skirt too. Cozy This Alo sports bra fits so well. I always stock up on the sleep shirts and PJs. These are the best underwear. And this is a great casual crewneck for the gym and this bodysuit for errands. Accessories This is such a great sun hat under $45. I love this felt fedora – I can see myself wearing it during a fall trip to Paris! This is the perfect black pump slingback – it would be comfortable enough to wear out + about in the city or to an office. If you’re looking for a neutral, chic card case, this All Saints faux croc one is beautiful!

Simple Date Night Outfit

I often get asked, “What should I wear on a date?” and this outfit is a no-fail one for me! A bodysuit, skinny jeans, a simple heeled sandal, and a clutch are my go-to date night pieces. You’ll feel comfortable, put together, and sexy in them! What to Wear – Date Night OutfitBodysuits look great on every single woman, and this Banana Republic bodysuit is so soft and under $20 right now (it’s on major sale.) I have it in 5 colors and wear them with sweatpants around the house as well. Another bodysuit I love is this Leith one which is long sleeve and made of a slinky/more dressed up spandex material. I love wearing these Nippies as a bra underneath tight bodysuits. Whoever said skinny jeans and/or ripped jeans are OUT is wrong… At the end of the day, you have to wear what YOU love regardless of whether it’s trendy or IN/OUT. I’ve never followed trends which has served me well. These L’Agence jeans are such a dream on. They fit beautifully, make your butt feel so good, have the right amount of stretch, and come in a ton of different washes. They’re high waisted and a staple in my wardrobe (I have them in black, white, dark blue, light blue and grey ha!) Obsessed… Styling My OutfitA simple heeled sandal is great for any occasion. The ones I’m wearing here are oldies from Mango, but these Schutz ones are identical. The black faux croc pair is really fun too. While the Bottega Veneta “pouch” clutch is certainly pricey, it’s a really elegant piece that you’ll have forever. I love the woven white leather one. I also love this simple YSL clutch.

What To Wear To The Beach

Summer is here and I wanted to share my favorite swimsuits, sarongs, sandals, and sun hats. Most of my favorite beach items have been on rotation for years and years. This hat is the only straw hat you need – it’s a splurge, but the absolute perfect shape! Zimmermann bikinis are my go-to swimwear of choice – I love the fit, the prints, and the little details they always include. Without further ado, the best items to wear to the beach… What To Wear To The BeachBest SwimsuitsThis L*Space bikini is by far the best white balconette top I own. It’s so flattering and adjustable. It sells out quickly, but this one is similar. I have this Bond Eye two piece in black and red – it’s one size fits all, so stretchy and the fabric is amazinggggg. I also have it in a one piece – which is SO sexy. Another one piece I have is this Hunza G one. It’s a similar stretchy/crinkly fabric to the Bond Eye one (TBH I like the Bond Eye one more.) You can never go wrong with Missoni bikinis… Cettire has so many good ones on major sale! Like I said above, Zimmermann swimsuits are beautiful, and I always find the best ones at Nordstrom, Revolve or The Outnet. Eyeing this one, this one, this one and this one. Best SandalsThese Stuart Weitzman pearl sandals are a dream….they’re SO comfy. I also love a simple TKEES flip flop. Best CoverupsThis white shirtdress is such a classic beach dress/coverup. I’m obsessed with a Missoni tunic dress for the beach or pool. I love this white Melissa Odabash pom pom coverup – it lays really beautifully when you tie it at the corner of your hip. I recently bought a few of these Etsy sarongs – and am SO impressed with the quality and price point. I got the 10 pack for wedding guest gifts. These are my go-to denim shorts (also here), but I’m eyeing this pair under $45. If you’re looking for a coverup under $20 – I have this one in black and white. And if you want a coveurp/dress you can slip on and head to lunch or drinks after – this is a great LBD. Best Sun HatsLike I mentioned above, this Janessa Leone straw hat is 100% worth the investment. This one with a ribbon is really cute, and a baseball hat always looks really good too. Best Straw TotesThe one in this photo is from By Tatoufa. Another straw bag I’ve been using a ton this summer is this one with brown leather handles. These mini personalized straw totes are really fun and so are the pom pom ones.
