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!

Montauk Beach Day: Halter Double-Slit Maxi Dress

I purchased this maxi halter dress at the start of the summer, and I could not wait to wear it in the Hamptons! I love the neutral colors, the subtle tie-dye, and most of all the double-slit. I paired this dress with a bright pink triangle bikini, and new cat-eye white sunglasses (had been crushing on white sunnies all summer). This was my first trip to Montauk, and it was an absolute blast.

Fall Transition: Burgundy Pleats

Tom Naples Photography and I are at it again. We shot this look a few weeks ago on a beautiful warm fall day in the Lower East Side. We were particularly inspired by street graffiti and the Williamsburg Bridge. This post has a few different key fashion elements: this Maje leather jacket- which is a closet staple and an investment piece which is perfect for fall, this burgundy (trend alert!) pleated maxi dress- which is a great fall transition piece, this tie-string choker (trend alert!) which I have been wearing almost every day, my trusty ear jackets and ankle strap flats. This maxi dress is perfect for summer to fall, as it’s lightweight but long, can be layered easily, and the burgundy color is my favorite fall shade. I felt pretty rocker-chic and edgy between the leather jacket and the choker. It was Tom’s idea to head to the Williamsburg Bridge (I had never been) and it was such a blast. He has such an amazing eye! Enjoy the pics, and be sure to shop the links below.
