Summer lovin'

Updated: Aug 28, 2019

The midpoint of summer is a nice time to hit refresh. Here are some great easy pieces to add to your existing staples. Not only will they get you through the last days of the heat, but most will transition with a light layer right into the first month of fall.

What a great find from Zara! This black dress is lightweight (linen blend) and sexy with a very cool back. Perfect for summer evenings out or as an easy day dress. With a jean jacket, it can carry you through early fall.

Really affordable everyday necklace by Laura Lombardi. Looks much more expensive than it is and goes with just about everything from a simple tee to a more polished look. Would be excellent as a layering piece with other gold tone chains.

If you haven't already discovered Natalie Martin, you'll love her easy lightweight flow-y dresses. They are beautifully made and last year over year. Love the pattern of this sleeveless wrap dress. [Note: As of 8.28.19, this dress is no longer available.]

Trust us, this top is as light as air. You literally do not feel like you are wearing anything when you put it on. It looks equally great with pants or shorts, especially with a half-tuck. Pair with the Frame jeans below this fall.

These are stretchy jeans that you can wear right now and are the perfect transition to fall. They pair beautifully with navy, white, charcoal - or other brick tones for a mono-chromatic look. Don't be deterred by the length of these - if you're shorter in height, just plan on altering the length to your own taste.

This is a well-priced, three-season bag by Staud that can be worn cross-body or hand-held. It even comes with a matching leather zip pouch. It would look great with all of the above and probably most of the rest of your closet.
