Gingham was a trend last year but we’re seeing it in even greater volumes this summer.  I love the chic and girlie look of the tie-front skirt and ruffled trim tee shown below.  Grounded in basic black, the look is still classic and tailored.  The clutch from Banana Republic is one of my faves and didn’t and wasn’t yet available when I wrote this post on straw accessories!

  • Soludos embellished floral mule
  • Banana Republic straw clutch
  • Kendra Scott Hailey necklace

  • Helen Kaminski raffia hat

Go BOLD!  I saw this dress at Express last week and fell in love.  If spaghetti straps aren’t your thing (I’ve got shoulders like a Heisman-trophy winning running back), layer the dress on top of a fitted white tee.  Alternately, wear a layer on top.  This white boucle bomber jacket fits the bill perfectly and is only $78 at full price.  The sales this weekend make it even lower.

  • Express stripe slip dress
  • Franco Sarto Rosalina sandal
  • Tory Burch Kira bag
  • Kendra Scott Sophee earrings

All of my blogging friends are doing some version of camo this summer.  Typically viewed as a fall/winter pattern, lighten camouflage prints up for summer by pairing with blush, beige or white.  Rose gold sandals and sunnies perfectly complement the lighter feel of these tones.
