This look was inspired by one of my favorite movies, Dirty Dancing – specifically this scene. I love Baby’s laid-back take on preppy style in this movie, and when I found this top in my drawer (from oh circa 2008), I knew I had to pair it with white jeans…

Stole my title from the name of this dress… it is aptly named, though, wouldn’t you say? With this heat wave in Boston, the only sensible thing to wear is sandals and an easy summer-dress –  I love the pretty print on this one, don’t you?

When taking on the crop top trend, remember… always pair with something high-waisted, proportions are key, and be confident. Which look is your favorite?

Denim cutoffs are a Summer staple… that is well documented. However, I find myself wearing them the same way over and over again (something akin to outfit #2), so for your sake as much as my own I styled a few options to inspire your denim-wearing, dog days of Summer using these Rag & Bone shorts. Which look is your favorite? Have a great weekend!

What can I say? It’s hard not to pull a Marilyn when you are wearing a white pleated dress outside in the Summertime… Plus, it is kind of fun to twirl 🙂 I hope everyone has a fantastic holiday weekend!

Night Out: A twist on the classic black/white combination, this mixed-pattern dress is fresh and flattering. Leopard wedges hint at sexiness, while remaining practical for bar-hopping, and a punchy clutch adds the perfect pop of color.

Barbecue: Mix a casual Tee with a feminine midi-skirt for an unexpected and cool BBQ look. Summer sandals (that you can easily slip off to play games) and a little bling pull it all together.

I scored this dress last Summer in an Anthropologie sale, and it is still one of my faves… It’s a classic shirt dress with a modern print in punchy colors… plus, it has a contrast back placket which I adore. This piece perfectly fits my “classic with a twist” style…

How effortlessly chic is this!?! Roomy shorts, a semi-sheer oversized knit, and flat sandals come together perfectly for an easy, breezy Summertime look. Plus, I love the neutral color palette and simple jewelry – it can be really refreshing to go simple sometimes, don’t you think?

This dress reminds me of one of my favorite fashion moments in movie history… the polo scene in Pretty Woman, when Julia Roberts is wearing that brown and white polka-dot dress, cinched with a belt, and a straw hat. And, of course, I get confused for Julia Roberts all.the.time in my dreams. Now all I need is a silver fox/billionaire to woo me and take me to polo matches… What are some of your favorite fashion moments in movies?
