—————— GOLD ACCENTS ——————
Gilded accents are a year-round trend for me, from statement rings to pendant necklaces to the hardware on my bags and belts. I like the warmth and visual interest they add to my outfits, and the sparkle makes every outfit feel more special.
—————— GLADIATOR SANDALS ——————
I found an extremely comfortable and chic shoe in these Dr. Martens gladiator sandals, which come in two versatile colorways. The ~1.5″ platforms are very on trend, the welt stitching add visual interest, and the buckle straps secure the shoe firmly to my feet. They are also exceptionally easy to care for, which is a must for a warm-weather shoe.
—————— BRAMIS ——————
Bramis (short for bra-cami) are the perfect base layer for warm-weather; the cropped fit pairs easily with high-waist bottoms and the stretchy material allows the piece to double as loungewear. I have been wearing my bramis with summer cardigans and denim and cargo skorts (outfit posts forthcoming).
—————— BOLD SANDALS ——————
If your outfit palettes generally lean more neutral or muted, you can easily add a pop of color (and warm-weather vibes) by completing your outfits with a pair of bright and playful sandals this summer. Try mules in an eye-catching pink, or thong sandals in a cheerful marigold.
—————— CAFTAN-STYLE DAY DRESS ——————
Flowy and effortless, shorter caftan-style dresses take you from brunch to the beach without requiring an outfit change. These one-and-done pieces make getting dressed in the summer a breeze. The option seen above is available in 25 colorways and is very affordably priced.
—————— LOOSE JEANS ——————
My search for the perfect pair of loose jeans (in a slightly cropped length) in a light-blue wash continues. The frontrunners so far came from AGOLDE (their mid- and light-blue options perfectly complement both bright and pastel colors) and Express. Wear them with a cropped cardigan set or an off-the shoulder top.
