If I have a second-string summer uniform outside of my usual red, white, and blue, it’s for sure some mix of black and white with gingham peppered in. Over the years, I feel like I’ve started to gravitate towards more of a classic look. Not all the time, because I still love experimenting with color and trendy silhouettes, but I have found myself reaching for the classics more often than not recently!
This little off-the-shoulder ruffled dress is so fun for summer! Perfect for BBQs, rooftop drinks, date night, weekend brunches, and Saturday or Sunday strolls… You can totally dress it down with flat sandals (or sneakers!) or pair with a heel for an elevated look. (Pun not intended 😜)
This hat is one of my favorites, for obvious reasons! After leaving my Janessa Leone hat on a plane in Japan (#tears), this one has become my go-to. It’s the exact same shape for a much lower price! (You don’t have to get it monogrammed, btw.) I think the personalized style is so fun for bachelorette parties, gifts, or even just to hang on your hat wall.
