lighten up

Summer officially starts today at 11:54AM EST, and I thought I'd celebrate this annual, highly-anticipated event by offering up some long-summer-day style inspo, starring Copenhagen-based stylist Emili Sindlev.  (P.S. She'll be relishing her 9:57PM sunset tonight!) Anchored in prints, eye-popping colors and the combination of the two, Emili's summer dressing approach is fun yet easy to emulate, particularly with Net-A-Porter's 20% off today-only sale. Use the special code here to redeem discount. Get on it with these warm weather gems by Ganni (similar to above), Blouse, Stine Goya, Eve Denim, Self Portrait, Faithfull the Brand (like last pic), and Cami.

slip around

Another good go-to summer outfit: an easy slip dress topped off with a polished blazer. Done and done. I'll be good to go in this animal print Bec & Bridge (similar to above), this wrap Tibi, this paisley Topshop, this print Anine Bing and this spotted H&M.

short and sweet

marlien rentmeester

With my twin sis away in New York, I relished (fraternal) twinning with my good friend Molly Sims at a Malibu party the other day. (See more snaps here!) We both opted for short and sweet (and green paisley): She in a  Zimmermann mini and me in a past season Valentino jumpsuit, scooped up recently at The Real Real, and very, very well-received by other revelers. I'm now thinking I could put another one in rotation, like the Reformation, below, topped with a white linen blazer, or this denim Frame or these beauts by Pam & Gela, Thurley, Asos, and Veronica Beard.


baby got back

Eminent summer style boils down to the right amount of skin-baring, and this season, I'll be baring some back, with sexy shirts, like the (all-business-up-front)  Sacai, above, this puff-sleeve Warehouse, this cropped floral Topshop, this pretty striped JBrand, and this classic silk Rokh (on sale!). P.S. Works for work, too, with a polished summer blazer, like this, this and this--all on sale!--over it!)

sandals in the city

I love capping off an everyday-getting-business-done outfit with an easygoing, strappy sandal. The mixed-up combo looks nonchalant yet chic--so up my alley! And might I add: perfect for Summer Fridays! I'm particularly obsessed with the endlessly wearable TKEES sandals, below, for $55! Also divine (and outfit-punctuating) are these by Steve Madden, Jeffrey Campbell (very Miu Miu!), Veronica Beard, Loeffler Randall, Chloe and Arizona Love.

scroll down

Before I knew it (before I even had a cup of coffee!), I had scrolled through 1,008 of 6,840 under-$100 dresses on Asos this morning. No, I did not have time to do this. Not even a little bit! Truth be told, I simply could not stop scrolling, due to the compelling and staggering amount of amazingly inexpensive options. They just kept popping up again and again and again (and again!). These are effortlessly chic dresses to swan around in on a hot summer day, ones that you don't have to think twice about, that just simply. . . work! For starters, take the breezy white $51 white midi, above, the $56 polka dot mini, below, this edgy maxi, this graphic floral (currently on its way to me!), this striped open-back statement, this cut-out vibrant dress, this animal-print frock, and this vacation-ready tropical-print wrap mini.

dress for less

School's not even out (okay, one more day!) but I've already stepped things way down, turning to the one-and-doneness of a long print dress day in and day out. The feather-light floral, above, is new by And Other Stories (I am wearing it backwards) and the one, below, is past season Anna Mason (snapped up at The Real Real). I also want to slip into these under $100 frocks by English Factory, H&M, Warehouse and Endless Rose.

sugar paper sweet

Way up there on my list of all-time favorite things is personalized stationery. I view it as a paper version of a statement outfit--a reflection of my personality. My twin sister is also a stationery fan, and although we have the same exact DNA, we gravitate toward different colors and vibes. So, naturally, we took our differences and teamed up with LA-based, in-demand stationer Sugar Paper to create the cutest customized cards to appeal to all personalities, but always come across stylish and chic--and, you know, make an original statement. Please check them all out here. (P.S. All bespoke stationery is now 25%. This only happens once a year, folks!)


Around me or on me, flowers have a pick-me-up effect, as you can see in the snap, above, taken earlier this week! Smiles ear to ear due to our dresses by Borgo de Nor. Mine is here; Coco's here. Happy Friday!
