skin deep

I'm not the type to let it all hang out, which is why I'm a fan of this spring's only slightly skin-baring tops. Strategically designed to show just the tiniest--but arguably sexiest--bit of skin, these blouses make a fresh statement, plus provide the perfect amount of ventilation. I particularly love these by Tome (above), Cheap Monday, Tibi, Asos, Maison Mayle, Banana Republic, Milly, and Madewell.

up and up

Since I wear my hair up 24/7/365, I'm obsessively on the hunt for a new accessory that will shake things up a bit. It can be as simple a re-purposed ribbon (above), an everyday-worthy leather cuff  (also in this color), a tortoise shell ponytail holder or a metal-trimmed elastic. But then again it's fun to go all out with something statement-y, like this elegant pearl-studded pin, this vibrant hair band, this party-ready crystal comb and this quartz hair slide

ganni girl

If Ganni isn't already on your radar, it should be. The Danish clothing line has a huge cult following in Europe, thanks to its spot on silhouettes at reasonable prices. Until recently it has been hard to find in the US--much to my dismay!--but now we all can scoop up Ganni's statement-making summer dresses, like the chiffon maxi, above, along with these weekend-ready track pants, this vibrant mohair sweater, this sophisticated polo top, this cropped statement jacket, this swingy lace blouse and this ruffled jumpsuit.
