Got this great one-shoulder dress at Marshall’s a few years ago, and I’ve gotten a lot of use out of it. In the Fall, I will top it off with an oversized sweater or my denim jacket and booties. But for now, sexy sandals and a statement necklace are the perfect accents for a night out with my manfriend.

I never tire of Black + White (or some shade of white), and one of my favorite ways to accessorize this color palette is with rich cognac accents, like this belt. Leopard wedges pull it all together for a polished, but laid-back late Summertime look.

A couple weeks ago, the manfriend and I went to Gloucester for the weekend. The weather was gorgeous and our spot on the water was incredible. After a casual brunch, we took these pics on the roof so we could take in the whole view!

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?

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!

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…

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?
