Summer Vibes

Summer is back in full swing (or is it always summer in LA?) and that means comfy light fabrics and sun-ready accessories. I’m obviously used to dressing for the sun, but this time I was in New York, and not during the chilly, fall Fashion Week.

I think one of the easiest summer looks is the dress and sandal combo. I usually feel like it’s a major victory when I love my outfit but I don’t have to think about it while I’m wearing it. I love that you can just slip on a summer dress, throw on some quick sandals and run out the door, looking cute, but staying comfy, and not having to worry about all kinds of layers or annoying, awkward fits.

I also really like finding cute, basic blacks, so I love that summer dresses (and anything off-the-shoulder) make it possible to wear black without looking too wintery or formal.

Add in my favorite accessory: a white hat, and the summer vibes are on fleek.
