Summer Style Q+A

I received so many great questions on stories asking for summer style advice. While I love answering them on IG, I’m able to go wayyy more in depth on the blog, so I’ve comprised them all here for you! Now you can reference this post again and again this summer.

Summer Style Q+A

What are the best summer shoes for the day that aren’t sandals?

I love my classic white Thousand Fell sneakers. Not only are they a sustainable brand, their sneakers are SO flattering and chic on. I find that they run a little big, so I actually went down a size and took the 8 instead of 9 (I’m typically an 8.5/9.) And you can never go wrong with Chanel slingbacks.

What should I wear to a wine tasting?

A nice floral or white midi dress that’s flowy and bohemian with sandals. I love this one, this one, this one, this one and this one.

Wedding guest dress suggestions?

You’re in luck, I just did an entire blog post on that here! And I update my Bridal Shop page weekly with wedding guest dress picks as well.

What are your favorite affordable lightweight jackets or sweaters to wear with a casual dress?

I’m a huge fan of a white blazer over a sundress because you instantly look put together! I LOVE Mango blazers and jackets – this white linen one is under $80. This linen blend Veronica Beard one is a splurge, but I wear it ALL the time. I also like pairing a green military style jacket with a white dress – and this one is under $18. And this beige cardigan is beautiful and under $15.

What are your favorite affordable beach totes?

This straw tote has been my go-to for years! I also love this one.

What are your favorite sandals?

Hermes Oran sandals, these Valia Gabriel lace up sandals, TKEES flip flops, these Alexandre Birman sandals, these gold Alexandre Birman sandals, these Stuart Weitzman sandals, and the Sam Edelman Gigi sandals.

What are cute yet walkable spring shoes for NYC that aren’t white sneakers?

The Sam Edelman Gigi sandals and my Hermes Oran sandals are always great for walking around the city. I also love to wear my Chanel slingbacks.

What to wear on a date night when you feel bloated/not cute?

A flowy midi dress from my Fashion Shop page.

What are your favorite jeans and denim shorts?

These RE/DONE jeans are my absolute favorite right now! SO comfy and run true to size. LOVE them in white too. This pair of cream Ann Taylor jeans has been on heavy rotation. And you can never go wrong with these AGOLDE denim cut offs.

What type of daytime heel can I wear on vacation other than a wedge?

This espadrille is a wedge, but really unique looking. I love this Alexandre Birman block sandal, and this Schutz strappy sandal is a favorite.

How do I style a slip dress?

Throw a leather jacket over it, throw an oversized blazer over it, pair it with a long draped cardigan, tie a cashmere sweater over your shoulders, or put on a crisp white button down blouse and tie it at the waist!

Are Hermes sandals worth it?

Yes! So comfy and have lasted me 5+ years already!

What should I wear on my upcoming vacation to Cape Cod/Nantucket?

I have a Travel App that not only has the best restaurants, shops, hotels, and fun things to do in Nantucket, but also outfit recommendations. You can download it on your phone or view it on desktop here!
