ONE SUMMER PIECE Dress Up, Dress Down

Summer is by far my favorite season of the year. And I love that summer fashion can be just plain simple and fun: like take an on-trend piece such as this ombré dress from Young, Fabulous & Broke, and dress it up or down to take full advantage of those long, sunny days and warm, scintillating nights…

ombré dress, Young, Fabulous & Broke, $185

fuchsia foldover clutch, Gorjana, $154
 silver cuff, Stella & Dot, $98
hologram snakeskin sandal, B Brian Atwood, $157  (sale)

panama hat, J.Crew, $58
crochet tote, Tory Burch, $395
chunky heel sandal, Luxury Rebel, $130 


A versatile solution for summer vacations too!

  1. Wow such a cute dress! Love both sandals and would not have thought to pair this with either! Great idea for my holiday! 🙂

  2. Oh no. Those B Atwood sandals are on SALE!!! I’ve had my eye on those for a while. I guess I should check out whether my size is in stock 🙂

  3. Both looks are h.o.t.! I would wear ‘dress down’ any day of the week. The dress is so cute! Love your style E! 🙂
