I know summer is meant to be the time to take things slow, but lately life is moving faster than ever. I'm here for it, to be perfectly honest! Been wearing tons of fun things to tons of fun places, and of course, making my ~tons of fun~ friends take photos of my looks. Thanks, guys!
All eight looks I loved most this month just so happened to be dresses, and I kind of love how different each one is from the next. I rocked frilly, girly maxis and short, silky minis, and I intend to keep trying out extemes for the rest of the summer, so long as the weather doesn't stand in my way.
P.S. It's been six consecutive months of "What I Wore" roundup posts! I'm really loving this quick & easy approach to sharing OOTDs, so hopefully you do too. BTW, if you saw my Montauk looks on IG and are wondering why I didn't include them, I decided to save them for July since it was the last two days of June and my blog post was all prepped. X
Elliatt Scalloped Faith Dress (similar; similar) | Netted Handbag (similar by Staud) | Dolce Vita Sandals
This felt like the capital 'P' Perfect dress for a summer brunch in the city. Cute, comfortable, and effortless.
Caara Porrez Dress (similar short version) | Vintage Fendi Baguette (similar by Fendi) | Mix No. 6 Clear Sandals | INH Miya Ponytail
I've never gotten so many DMs about a dress in my life! Unfortunately, I can't find the Caara dress online, but if this fit taught me one thing, it's that ruching is my friend. And that a good high pony can really elevate a look!
LéRumi Gingham Dress | Netted Handbag (similar by Staud)
I originally picked out this dress for Montauk, but decided I didn't want to wear a little mini while running around all weekend. Wore it to a breakfast meeting instead and got tons of compliments! I really loved the puffy, off-the-shoulder sleeve moment.
Saloni Dress | Rejina Pyo Rita Bag | Katy Perry Sandals (similar new style by KP)
Ugh, Saloni dresses really are the best. They hug my curves so beautifully! I never feel better than when I'm wearing Saloni, so this dress was a must for a girls' night at Palma for pasta and wine. Salud!
Slate & Willow Gown (similar; similar) | Staud Bag | Mix No. 6 Clear Sandals
This dress is a Rent The Runway exclusive, but I never thought it would be so easy to find a one-shouldered maxi gown that fit me so beautifully! Loved this look for a night in Philly celebrating QVC's Beauty Bash, and would definitely keep it in mind for summer wedding guest attire.
ML Monique Lhuillier Dress | Dolce Vita Sandals
This dress wasn't actually my fave, as it was super low-cut and you can totally see my white lace bra. Still, my friends loved it and it was light and easy for walking around Beauty Bash. I also love when a more formal dress still works with an easy, flat sandal!
Nicholas Smocked Dress | Rejina Pyo Rita Bag | Katy Perry Sandals (similar new style by KP)
Tried to give off some French vibes for a morning meeting at the Plaza with Krigler, and this Nicholas dress really did the damn thing with its pink gingham print and oversized belt and sleeves. BTW, this Rejina Pyo purse is one of the most beautiful handbags ever IRL. I would wear it every day if it fit more of my essentials.
Miaou Dress | Miaou Jacket | Steve Madden OTK Boots | Clear Purse | INH Miya Ponytail
Don't judge me, I had to go all out for the Ariana Grande concert with KISS! The pony was an obvious must, and after taking some inspo from John Galliano newspaper looks worn by Kim Kardashian and SJP as Carrie Bradshaw, I figured this dress was a great option to make a statement. The matching jacket only sealed the deal. BTW, you have to use a clear bag at Ari concerts, and the one I bought on Amazon was so cheap and genuinely cute!
