Raffia and straw are taking over summer collections everywhere. Whether you’re investing in a solid piece, like a tote bag for the beach, or you want to keep it on the bargain side with a beach-worthy straw hat, there are tons of options to choose from.
T-shirt dresses are my favorite thing to wear by far. Whether it’s to the office with a pair of pointed toe flats, on the weekend with slip-on sneakers, or to brunch paired with espadrille wedges, they work for any occasion. I particularly love when they have a fun detail that makes it stand out.
This weekend I celebrated turning 26. I love a good birthday celebration, but birthdays also tend to be a bit stressful for me – herding different friends to one location can be a bit dizzying. I did have the best birthday I could’ve hoped for, with friends visiting, going to a delicious (and indulgent) dinner on the Georgetown waterfront, and a lovely (albeit hot) evening having drinks on a rooftop.
I’ve been really into keeping my style simple lately – undergarments and jewelry included. Bralettes are my new go-to, especially as the weather warms up and I’m finding myself drawn to looser, strappier tops and dresses.
I’ve been toying with the idea of buying a new bag. It has been a while since I’ve gotten a new everyday one – I’ve been using J.Crew’s New Uptown Tote (current version here) for years, and it has held up surprisingly well. For my daily bag, I need something that’s roomy enough for a laptop, and that can hold up to a bit of heavy wear.
You know when you just fall in love with a pattern? That was the immediate reaction to the Delina Blue Multi Skater Dress from Tobi. Something about the medallion print in that bold blue makes this dress such a stunner.

I love wedges. They’re comfortable and easy to wear, they can be dressed up or down, and there are infinite heights that they come in. I’ve always found it to be so important to have a couple basic pairs – namely in black and tan – so that I always have a go-to shoe for summer events and parties.
Maxi dresses are the perfect easy, casual outfit for the warmer months. I fell in love with the Kaori Plunging Maxi Dress from Tobi for how simple yet chic it is! With a plunging front and strappy detailing, it’s sure to be a favorite for summer.
