summer calling

ring ring, summer here. this weekend new york officially became the sweaty steampot it can be (a season officially marked once the sidewalk garbage starts to smell- blech). this is actually happy news for a summer girl like me, as I for one would rather be sweating than freezing in most scenarios.

if you’re a fellow summer birthday like this Cancer, you live for the days of long nights and bare legs. in honor of this most holy of seasons, I rounded up some shorts + sandal combos to carry you all season long.

studded dress, two ways

my weekly Zara perusal discovered a plethora of new spring arrivals–first up this amazing t-shirt dress. the studs pretty much scream isabel marant, its basic enough to go with everything, and it exudes just the right about of edge to not be boring. i will be wearing it now (with tights and 12 layers on top, so let’s skip that look), transitioning into spring and carrying it straight into the heat of summer. it’s a steal at $99 so grab one for yourself before it sells out!

transitional weather (spring/fall) for cooler days, layer a leather vest or jacket for warmth (love this allsaints style) and booties for a football game or concert

           1. Zara dress

           2. triangle studs to add another shape without adding too much additional bling

           3. a printed cross body by clare vivier— the polka dots acceptable post adolescence

           4. fringe boots balance out the biker vest with a cowgirl vibe

           5. vince leather vest (actually scored this exact style at TJ Maxx last weekend)

dog days of summer this dress is the perfect travel outfit– knee high gladiators balance out the asymmetrical hem and keep the bohemian vibe going

          1. Zara dress

          2. simple arm party by chan luu to add some extra color

          3. shades– prada sunnies may break the bank but always make for a great sunny day

          4. sandals (also try the always super comfortable stuart weitzman version–love the gold!)
