crochet time


Shape Magazine's June cover featuring Rose Byrne perfectly captures summer's luminescence and bubbly vibes--and so does the Zimmermann crochet dress, above, aptly named Candescent! I love its vintage Topanga-cool vibe--but not so much its hefty price. So I found a few similar options from Etsy (read: affordable yet original!) to lighten up the warm and sunny months ahead, starting with this, this, this and this. Zara and Free People also good!

taylor made



The last time I shopped at Ann Taylor was.... I don't know when! So, I was delighted, okay, more like shocked to see all the cuteness currently available, specifically these barely-there, go-with-everything sandals (similar to above), these print slides, this floral dress, the ruffled pretty, below, the pink maxi, below, and the ruffle-trim blouse, last pic. (P.S. This is NOT a sponsored post!)

slip and skirt



Lingerie as outerwear? Sure, why not! After being confined to our homes and cocoon-like sweatsuits, this skin-showing summer trend makes sense. Plus, it's easy to pull off (and temper) with a more demure full skirt, like the $295 organic cotton midi, below, or this belted Mara Hoffman. Zimmermann's lace-trimmed bodysuit, below, is perfectly sexy, but I also love these under $100 options by Flora Nikrooz, Free People and Simone Pirele.

major marant



The wildly discounted Isabel Marant situation going on right now at The Outnet is totally worth checking out. The striped tie-neck blouse at 60% off is just one legit standout among the just-in sale stock. I'm also swooning over this printed mini dress, this vintage-inspired tee, these broderie anglaise denim shorts, this floral print bikini, and these fun everyday slides.

sale to summer


Ulla Johnson for less moola always gets my attention--and I'm thinking the same goes for you. If so, Shopbop is staging a preview sale, rife with right-now pieces (Ulla sweater, above) and summer-ready staples (Freedom Moses sandals, bel0w). Also up for grabs: these Brock Collection jeans, these tie-waist Amur shorts, this striped Ganni pullover and this pretty lace Waimari dress. Check it all out here!



best dressed


Marlien Rentmeester Monique Lhuillier


It's officially time to dress up again--but without past effort! So, I'm zeroing on do-it-all dresses that don't need any extras to look best dressed! Case in point: the sequin Monique Lhuillier, above, even works without shoes! LOL! Meanwhile, Coco is currently working the under $500 ML Monique Lhuillier in the last snap, with an everyday zip-up hoodie, no less. Other options to shine in this spring come from Asos ($43!), By Timo, La Double J, Diane Von Furstenburg, Farm Rio, and Ba&sh. You can find the strapless floral dress, below, here!

lemlem x h&m

I love Lemlem's just-out collab with H&M, rife with staples for easy summer days and exotic escapes. My favorites include the airy organic linen blouse, above, this striped crop top, and this seersucker swimsuit, all under $50! Shop the collection here!

it takes two


The ready-to-go skirt/top combo situation that's happening this season completely mitigates the head-scratching outfit-choosing guesswork, and I am very psyched about this. Zara cashes in on this trend with the above, but so does Staud, The Reformation, Alexis, A.L.C., and Three Graces London. Bonus, of course, is pieces can be worn separately!

heritage jewelry

Mother's Day splurge, anyone? Count me in! I recently indulged in Heritage Jewelry New York's Family Circle necklace, below, which has my birthstone in the pendant's center, surrounded by my sons' stones in the surrounding slices. I also adore the cute script rings, above. More Mother's Day treats on my wish list: this crochet Ulla Johnson dress, this one-shoulder Bassike tank, these Gucci slides, this cherry-print Yumi Kim, and this Valentino raffia clutch.
