Seeing Stripes: Zimmerman Stripe Tank Dress
Easy, breezy summertime fashion. Zimmerman’s Stripe Tank Dress is a great addition to end-of-summer ease.
Add some ankle boots for night and sandals for day. Transfer into fall with boots and a leather jacket or layer over your favorite leggings or skinnies.
Stripes are the perfect neutral for mixing prints. Add some leopard pumps, a floral scarf or colorful cardigan.
With summer coming to an end… sigh… purchase some great staples that will transition smoothly into fall.

Wish List: Rag & Bone Capri Skinnies Coated Black
Rag & Bone Capri Skinnies are at the top of my Christmas Wish List this year.
Unlike the faux-leather legging of the past, these beauties are simply coated denim. They fit like denim, can be washed like denim, but look like leather.
Comfortable and perfectly constructed, the Rag & Bone Skinnies are incredibly flattering (unlike most faux-leather leggings that make legs look like stuffed-sausages). They can be worn all year, paired with chunky cable-knit sweaters or free-flowing tanks, ankle boots or Converse sneakers. Invest in a pair of Rag & Bone’s this season, you will not regret it.
Weekend Ensemble: Free People
This Labor Day Weekend experiment with some textured shorts. Suede, leather or corduroy can update a look instantly.
These Free People suede shorts introduce a bohemian vibe to an outfit. I love the colorful detailing of the belt that sits nicely against these textured shorts. Paired with a simple tee and ankle boots, you will be ready for any occasion.
Test drive a boho-chic look this 3-day weekend and try-on texture.
Have a wonderful weekend!
Bohemian Flair: Asos 70s Floppy Felt Hat
Inspired by 70s style, the floppy felt hat is my must-have this season. The classic wide-brim floppy will not only protect from sun damage, but will add a bit of glamour and bohemian flair.
The 70’s Floppy Felt Hat by Asos is my most recent purchase. I have been obsessing for months and finally found the perfect one. Made from thick felt/wool, the shape of the hat is perfect and adjustable (but hard to clean). The band of ribbon adds a simple embellishment that is soft and feminine.
Inspired by various bohemian and hippie influences, this hat has a retro-modern style. Pair this item with cut-off jean shorts and peasant top, big dangely earrings and ankle boots for an effortlessly casual look. Dress this look up by pairing with wide-leg pants and blazer or sundress and chunky heels. Or, channel your inner Brigitte Bardot and couple this floppy hat with wide-framed sunglasses and striped t-shirt.
The key to the look is confidence. Be fearless and rebellious this summer and try one on for size.
