As the weather improves and work-from-home life drags on, loose-fitting cabana shirts are becoming a major wardrobe staple for me. And what better way to satisfy my craving for fresh micro-florals and summer brights than this orange number from one of my favorite CFDA/Vogue Fashion Funders, Jonathan Cohen? Between his famously playful prints and bold use of color, and his recently launched digital “flower shop” (for which 30% of the proceeds go to charities like A Common Thread, Bowery Mission, Feed the Frontlines NYC, and No Kid Hungry).

As summer approaches, I can’t help but feel excited about slipping my feet into a chic pair of sandals once again. I’ve always been a fan of Phillip Lim’s work and these studded ones will give me the style boost I know I need after quarantining at home. On the other hand, this floral frock from Brock gives me all the feels for a romantic summertime.

I love this dress because it’s comfy enough to lounge around at home in but it’s also perfect for virtual parties or meetings as well! It doubles as a skirt which means you can play around with different tops and tees. I love something that’s versatile and comfortable so this is perfect for me—especially now that I’m multitasking like never before.
This Ryan Roche belted cashmere and silk cardigan feels like something I’d want to keep in my closet for years to come. That’s how I try to think lately when I shop. I dream about this cardigan because it looks cozy, but it also seems so versatile. It could be a comfy lounge sweater at home, or the perfect piece to layer a long leather coat over in the fall, or as dress with cute boots or heels… it can be livened up with the right accessories.

This Rebecca De Ravenel dress is as dramatic as it is darling. The sleeves give it a medieval goddess vibe while the cheery pink linen makes it perfect for summer—even if that summer is spent at home. I also love this Gigi Burris barrette, a bow in the hair just makes everything a bit better.

I am very much looking forward to the days I can take my lounging outdoors and trade sweatpants and slippers for swimsuits and sandals. I love the idea of mixing the feminine suit from Morgan Lane with the tougher 3.1 Phillip Lim platforms – even if I am the only one to see the result.

Like practically everyone else, I’ve been living in sweatpants for the past two months. Lately though, I’ve been in the mood for something more structured in anticipation of warmer, sunnier days. Phillip Lim’s skirt really feel like summer to me: breezy, white, and hits right at the ankle.

After spending the last two months in not much more than leggings and sweats, I am pining for some new fitness gear. I am obsessed with Adam Selman’s studded set that can be worn at home or while dressed up, even with nowhere to go.

I’ve always been a big fan of summer hats with neckties. As someone who tends to leave hats behind in parks or at beaches, this one won’t get lost when I take it off.
