Linen is one of my favorite fabrics for summer. While a lot of summer dresses can be made in cheap looking and thin fabric, linen is a sturdy fabric that holds up well throughout the day. Despite its thick texture, it doesn’t cling to your body but dries quickly in an unfortunate case of perspiration. This linen fit and flare dress from GAP is an absolute dream. It comes in a variety of colors and patterns and I love a good fit and flare silhouette.

This Goddess dress from Banana Republic is so true to its name. Its easy and breezy but still has that elusive Ancient Greek glamour to it. With some simple gold accessories, it’s the perfect item to glam up a weekend farmer’s market trip with my favorite straw tote and some comfortable embellished sandals!

I usually gravitate towards fit and flare and sheath dresses. Lately I’ve been flirting with the drop waist dress (last seen here, I’m also loving this one) to spice up my wardrobe, and I’ve been quite thrilled with them! I love this bright pink color and the waist is such a nice change with what I usually wear!

I wear navy like most people wear black, and this is especially true in the summer. When I want to rock a coral heel or an orange clutch, navy makes the accessories pop a little bit extra. I love that I can always count on Banana Republic for classic pieces like this dress that can work for all different occasions with a simple swap of accessories

This week’s gray rain has really been getting me down, so I decided this was the perfect time to start day dreaming about light and breezy summer outfits!
I love pairing turquoise accents together (usually this necklace, bracelet, and heels) as I think turquoise is pretty much the perfect accent color. I last did this last year here with this fun coral number and I think it works just as well with white! My pieces are all older (which just shows that turquoise can stand the test of time), so I’ve linked to similar options below! I don’t currently own a pair of turquoise earrings, but I am loving these Kendra Scott ones on MAJOR sale, as well as all of her turquoise items!

Happy Monday! Today’s post came a bit later than usual, as a result of having a bit too much fun last week and less time working. I was able to spend an amazing few days in New York City with my sister and spent some time with friends which was much overdue. It never ceases to amaze me how quickly friendships can slide away during the colder months only to blossom in full force with the spring and summer. But alas, I’m pretty convinced this dress may be worth the wait.
I first spotted this gorgeous palm dress on the beautiful Jessi of The Darling Detail. As soon as I saw it I knew I just had to have it as well! Green is such a great summer color in any of its hues, and the palms make for the perfect subtle pattern. Initially I was reminded of a tropical getaway when I saw it, but after we saw Jurassic World my friend Jake said it looked like a dinosaur was about to jump out at any minute, so naturally I like that reaction best!
This dress is great for so many different occasions, one of my favorite is a quiet Saturday stroll or a trip to the farmers’ market. Tying a chambray over makes the dress a bit more casual but gives it a great put-together look.

This is a true ‘day to night’ option because I kept all of my jewelry on, and merely switched out my shoes and bag to make a more evening friendly look. I love a loser fitting dress for nights out; I tend to favor the conservative look overall and it’s always nice to be comfortable and still look cute!
