DRESS The Kooples // HANDBAG YSL // NECKLACE Aqua // SHOES Ivanka Trump

In case you haven’t noticed, printed dresses are my favorite way to look summer chic. I’m often running around town during the week shopping for clients or in meetings, so I don’t have a lot of time to change between all of my appointments. That’s why I adore dresses! A great dress can take you from the office to cocktails in a snap. This little number by British design house, The Kooples, is everything one could want in a summer frock. The bright print and timeless fit means that it will always look cool.

You can go all sorts of directions when accessorizing this look, but I couldn’t resist rocking my YSL black and gold handbag. I purchased this little gem when I was in New York this past winter and it has been my go-to favorite ever since! I love that it can be used as a shoulder bag or a clutch. I would say this one is definitely worth the hefty price tag!

Stay stylish,

xo, SM

DRESS Milly // SHOES Jeffery Campbell // LIPSTICK Chanel

I’m always on the hunt for new little black dress options. Of course I own about 60 different style already (you can never have too much black, right??), but this Milly version couldn’t be more perfect! I’m totally obsessed with the high necklace and flirty skirt. I envision wearing this dress to a summer cocktail party or to an fancy brunch. You can even make this dress work for the office if you throw on a blazer and some fun accessories.

Don’t judge my fixation with these Jeffery Campbell shoes, I just can’t stop wearing them! I’ve included some other shoe options in the “Shop the Post” section below. Can you image dressing down this look with these Sam Edelman sandals??

DRESS Alice Olivia // SHOES Jeffery Campbell // BRACELET Leith

Maxi dresses are my go-to favorite for summer. They are just so easy, feminine and are always comfortable in the heat. This Alice Olivia dress caught my eye instantly! The ornate detailing on the top and sheer skirt are were just too “boho chic” to resist. I rocked this look while visiting the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs because it just seemed way too perfect in the space. This dress would also look amazing at an outdoor summer wedding or music festival.

I’ve been wearing these Jeffery Campbell kicks with everything, just because red shoes are my favorite way to make an outfit really pop! I also love the idea with a stacked wedge or even booties with this dress for fall.

Stay stylish,
