I love stripe everything. So of course, I love this striped blazer with zip pockets and a slight peplum hem. It’s perfect for spring and as a protective layer when summer comes ‘round and every building I enter is over air-conditioned.
Gotta love this black & white dress by Yigal Azrouël. Look #12 from his Spring 2014 RTW collection. I love the pattern, the cut, and the length of this dress. Perfect for a city summer.

Summer Fashion Fix - Budget Basics
Sometimes, I just need a cheap dress that works as an easy-to-wear canvas. I can easily accessorize it with scarves and jewelry if necessary, but I can change up these elements and keep using the dress as a starting point.
This H&M sleeveless dress in olive (also available in red) is going to be one of my workhorses for summer weekend afternoons.
This is going to be my go-to dress for some of the events I’ll attend this summer. I love the tasteful dark sparkliness of this dress and the big cutout in the back.

I like these sandals (Ivanka Trump Maxy - on sale at Nordstrom). I don’t know if they’ll fit me. I have a really high instep. Last week at Dillard’s, I tried on both the Vince Camuto Jerimaya and Fontanela. Neither one worked on my foot. The Jerimaya wouldn’t even buckle around that place on my foot and the t-strap was in the wrong place. The Fontanela fit ok but tight on the instep and I was afraid they’d be awful in the heat. So…. maybe I’ll try Maxy. One reviewer said that the space between the cage and the bottom was weird. Hmmmm…..
I really want these for all the upcoming summer parties. Some of the maxi-dresses I bought are so long that I need heels. This pair could be the solution…
This is my effortless summer dress. When I just want to slip on a pair of flat sandals and glide through the humidity with ease and élan.
At Mango, $69.99, but there’s a coupon code for 30% off:
I’m in love with this porcelain blue dress from Mango. I already know all the places where I’ll wear it this summer… The tassel belt is super-charming. I’ll feel like the High Priestess of Ibiza or Costa del Sol Vacationing while wearing this dress.
