Miguelina Liselle Dragonfly Embroidered Off-The-Shoulder Lace Maxi Dress

I have been living in this Miguelina maxi dress all summer! I love the blue and white colors, the polka dot pattern, the intricate lace, and the subtle (and whimsical) dragonfly embroidery. It’s cotton which makes it very comfortable, and it is easy to dress up or down with the accessories. I recently packed this dress for a trip to Montana, and it was perfect for Saturday night. It is sold out at Net-A-Porter but is still available at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman!

Wedding Guest Edition: Colorblock Pleated Maxi Dress

My cousin Sarah got married last Saturday in the most beautiful vineyard wedding in Traverse City, Michigan! For the occasion, I knew that I would need to be careful about my footwear choice as there was grass. I decided to go with one of my favorite seven year old (!) pleated maxi dresses that I bought in Thailand. I don’t wear maxi dresses too often, but I do enjoy them. I like the summery bright colorblock on this one! Also, it allowed me to wear flat gold sandals…perfect for grass and allowed me to happily dance the night away! I accessorized with gold earrings, my gold watch, my quilted Chanel bag with gold hardware, and my trusty heart sunglasses. I am wishing it was last weekend!

Strapless Silk Paisley Maxi Dress & Leather Hobo Bag

I can’t believe there are less than two weeks of summer left! I have so many special summer clothes that I am trying to wear quickly now ha! I wore this strapless silk paisley maxi dress on a weekend stroll last Saturday with one of my best friends, Nicky. We walked around some of our favorite spots in the West Village, including my favorite street: Morton Street. I kept the look simple, easy, flowy, and classic with gold aviators and a brown leather gold lobster-claw clasp Tory Burch hobo bag. I completely the look with a new dainty gold two-star necklace (trend alert) I purchased that day from Gorjana!

I like that this look has boho vibes. It’s different from looks that I usually wear, which is fun!

France Part 2, Cannes: Striped Maxi Dress, Panama Hat & Aviators

After Aix-en-Provence, we made a quick pit stop for the night in Marseilles, and then continued to Cannes. I have always been curious to see and explore Cannes, as it sounds so glamorous with the Cannes Film Festival! I remember looking at all of the movie stars in their billowing silk gowns on the French Riviera’s red carpet. While we ate some amazing meals in Cannes (a few pics below) and Gwen did some serious shopping damage, I think that I would be okay to skip it when I go back to the south of France. There were a lot of tourists, and a lot of cruise ships! I did love this summery striped maxi dress though- it felt very nautical to me. I paired the dress with my trusty Panama hat, and gold rim aviator sunglasses.

I love the mock-halter of this dress, as well as the easy tie at the front. This dress will be great to transition into fall with a leather jacket. It’s a perfect look for Los Angeles…or Cannes!
