Although there are no vacations for me in sight unfortunately, sunning in my backyard or at the park or beach in a bright bathing suit is always mood enhancing. I love that this brand, Lemlem, is sustainable and made by the ever-inspiring Liya Kebede.

Marina Moscone’s twist cape optimizes her understated style that’s super chic but relaxed. It’s something I could see wearing for years to come — when it’s time to go out again.

This smocked tee from Thakoon has the perfect amount of frills and these sleek trousers from Deveaux are ones I will easily wear on the reg. The ARossGirl handbag can easily go from day-to-night with its elegant shape and luxe velvet straps. And finally, this Anna Sui tweed bucket hat offers the perfect summer-pick-me-up.

Tommy Ton, the creative director of Deveaux, and I go back at least 12 years, when he started shooting street style for Style.com. He once told me, “everybody loves beautiful models, but it’s when there’s a personality behind it, that’s when the look comes to life.” He brings that appreciation for unstudied, unmanufactured style to his work at Deveaux. That’s what I like about this easy ribbed knit dress: its simplicity is what gives it its elegance.

My summer wardrobe is full of loose, easy pieces – nothing too tight or clingy! This billowy blouse is perfectly paired with jeans for summer nights outdoors.

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.

I’m quarantined in South Florida and I did not bring any warm-weather clothes with (big mistake, I know!) To beat the Florida heat, I am eyeing this lightweight bralette from Victor Glemaud to wear around the house and the occasional grocery run.
Like so many others, I have been living in my cozy socks and house slippers these past few months and I’m desperate for a change without sacrificing comfort. These gingham flats from Chloe Gosselin are the perfect pair to transition into for summer.

The perfect warm-weather top to pair with linen pants or a white jean. Wear it during an al fresco dinner, or hey, to your next meeting. You don’t need an occasion to make a statement.

I love everything Jonathan Cohen does with florals and have been itching to try the patchwork trend for a few months now. The sharp pencil silhouette is a nice contrast to the boho print, too. I’d probably wear it with a muscle tee and Birkenstocks as the weather heats up, but it would be fab in the fall with a cozy knit or a blazer, too.

I have a few pairs of Brock Collection’s signature Wright jeans, but they’re so good that I’m eyeing this dark-wash pair, too. They’re quite literally the perfect jeans, at least to me. Mid-rise, straight leg, non-stretch, zero distressing—I always come back to them. (Also: They run a bit small, so size up!)
