“I love color and I love florals. This skirt is a mix of both. To balance it out, I wore it with a simple white cropped top and then added a statement bag and shoes.”
“This dress is so easy to wear; I can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. This particular day, I wore it with flat sandals and a big bag for a casual lunch.”
“There’s nothing like a long, colorful kaftan for the beach. This one looks good with all my swimsuits, and it can be worn from the house to the beach even on its own.”
“This season, I am obsessed with large tutu skirts and with the color yellow, so you can imagine my feeling when I find both in one piece! I paired this with a black top, leather jacket, and a shoulder bag to give the outfit some edge.”
“Statement pants are a must this summer… I’ve worn this pair so many times already and in so many different ways. Not to mention that they are super comfortable and look amazing with both flats and heels.”
“I am in love with every piece by Comme des Garçons. I usually never wear the same brand from head to toe, but this outfit is an exception. The pants especially are super cool, and to add a bit of texture I opted to wear them with python sandals.”
