Twirl

Wearing: Alice & Olivia skirt (similar) and cami (similar) and Valentino sandals (loaned)


When I was about five or six, I had a light blue Cinderella dress that had a train that sparkled. I used to run down this long hallway (which resulted in me falling every two minutes... some things never change) and the train would fly up around me. Everytime I wore my Cinderella dress it brought a smile to my five year old self. In all honesty, I think I still have the dress but it has seen better days.

When the amazing Seaside Luxe team let me play dress up in their Viceroy boutique, I beelined to this Alice & Olivia maxi skirt. All those princess memories flooded back into my head as I twirled under Anguilla's early morning sun.

Formulaic


As it's completely  obnoxiously obvious by now, stripes are my favorite print to wear. A stripe dress can become your best friend when it comes to weekend dressing. Having it be a classic item, it can be challenging to mix it up and put your own personal spin. I tend to go with an overall blue and white palette (with a pop of red... 'Murica). A dark wash chambray cinches the waist and adds texture which is most definitely a win-win. Tousled hair and minimal makeup finish of the formula for weekend dressing.

A few other combinations I love for a stripe number:
cinched waist + open trench + hi-tops

Wang for the Win


If you have been living under a rock (or in this case, haven't been on social media at all), the incredible Alexander Wang is partnering up with H&M. 

Yes, you did read that correctly.

Now, if the cool-girl tomboy clothes that were seen on the runway during Fashion Week isn't exactly in your budget, you mustn't fret. The collection with the mass retailer is launching November 6th ( 7 months away).

Alexander Wang is truly running this fashion world between his own line and Balenciaga... 
Wang for the Win is by all means accurate.

Simplicity


Spell dress, Oliver Peoples sunglasses c/o Seaside Luxe

One evening in Anguilla, I slipped on a simple dress and headed down to my favorite area of Barnes Bay. The beautiful beach is filled with hanging ivy and conch shells that scatter the beach. The few moments right before sunset were serenity at its finest.

This Spell dress was my go-to little number during my time in Anguilla. It's a breezy little dress that everyone should have for summer and so on (i.e. musical festival season). This simplistic slip can be worn many different ways for those summer nights that will be soon dawning upon us (it's coming!)
