In the summer months, I love wearing dresses as an alternative to pants or shorts. They can be just as comfortable and cool as shorts; yet appear so much more “put together.” I love this little striped dress by Monki for summer. It can be worn casually without a belt and paired with flat sandals, or dressed up as in the photos above. For less than $40, that is downright amazing!
This summer I have been gravitating towards black and white pairings with pops of pink or blue. This tote bag has been my go-to “pop of pink” since January when I first purchased it! I had originally planned to bring it to New York with me last February for fashion week, but it was too big to fit inside my suitcase, yet not big enough to use as a travel tote. Since I refuse to check my bags for fear of the airline losing one, I always try to pack things which fit easily in my carry-on. It would have been perfect during fashion week because it is roomy and would have fit my camera, a scarf, gloves, iPad and more!
This Rebecca Minkoff tote bag has been an amazing handbag this season. It can fit extra clothing, a book, my laptop and more. I can’t wait to see which colors it comes in this fall. I may need to to invest in a fall hued one. . .
