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?

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 to Wear: July 4th

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.
Thakoon Dress, J. Crew sandals, Jessica Simpson bangles, Target studs, Givenchy clutch
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.
J. Crew tee, Tucker skirt, Christian Louboutin sandals, BaubleBar necklace
Fireworks: Silk shorts and a cozy sweater make for an easy and chic outfit, perfect for taking in the awe of a Fireworks show! On-trend wedges and a few statement accessories give the look even more style.

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?

I’m not usually a shorts girl but when I saw this sweet take on denim cut-offs, I couldn’t say no. The slightly higher waist and pretty, floral print adds a little extra polish that my regular jean shorts don’t have. I kept it casual this weekend by pairing them with a basic tee and braided belt, but stay tuned for a dressed-up look!

I can just hear my dear Mother saying “You need a belt with that” and normally, I would totally agree. However, the asymmetry of this Michael Kors dress creates better angles which allow me to get away with not wearing a belt. Plus, every once and a while, you just feel like throwing on a potato-sack dress with some great accessories and calling it a day…. And this was one of those times. (Sorry, Mom)

P.S. I’m totally loving this new City of Boston view as a backdrop for my photos – aren’t you?

Forgive my absence from the blogosphere – I’ve been busy figuring out my new job and my new city of Boston, with little time to update my site… But I’m back, and here is a weekend look that took me to Newbury Street for a leisurely walk and smoothies with the manfriend. You really can’t go wrong with a comfy striped top, jeans, and a broken-in pair of loafers. What’s your go-to weekend casual?

Currently Craving: Spring Fever

The temps rose dramatically in NYC the past couple of days… a brief tantalizing whiff of Spring, before January remembers her place on the Northeast climate spectrum. Tempted by the weather (or so I’m justifying it to myself), I added a couple Springtime pieces to my closet that I’m so eager to wear! Here are some newbies, plus some coveted items for Spring and where to get them:
