New Look // Classic, Summer Style — On Sale

Who doesn’t love a good sale? During my trip to San Diego I happened upon an Aeropostale store having a major end-of-summer sale (in July). I hadn’t been inside Aeropostale for years, since it’s one of those stores I tend to think of as stocking mid-2000s logo tees, but in fact, they had racks and racks of cute dresses and rompers, most at half off.

This dress is one of those purchases: a soft, flowy dress with a classic pattern and print, that’s super versatile. I styled it up here with red pumps but this is a dress you can easily style down with sandals for a super casual look, or try it with a statement necklace for date night! One of the reasons why dresses are so popular is because they’re so easy (and fun) to style in endless ways.Read More »

All-White Summer Style & Dresses by Andrew Marc

Summer is upon us and that means stocking up on some wardrobe essentials! Since I shopped rather gratuitously during the early spring I don’t have much more buying to do but I do want to get on this all-white trend bandwagon. White or off-white is probably my favorite color to wear; it’s so versatile and looks classic and clean. Here are some of my favorite white/cream picks from clothing company Andrew Marc:

All of these dresses, despite the trendy color scheme I’m sort of imposing on them, are classic and versatile. They eschew all the normal trends of the moment, especially the boho look and the vintage prints I’m always gravitating toward. That’s what I really like about these designs: they’re classic and ultra-wearable.

One small thing I really love about Andrew Marc’s Marc New York dress collection is that each dress is named after a Greek god/dess or figure from mythology. I was really excited when I saw that! 🙂 (And yes, I’m aware of what a huge dork I am.) My favorites are the Eris and the Athena:

Eris, Athena

You don’t want to cross either of them. 😉 I think the Eris is going to find its way into my closet one of these days! I love that color.
