Wondering what the ultimate perfect Spring/Summer staples are this year to keep your closet looking fresh? Here’s my personal take on a couple of musts you can mix and match for any occasion, day or night, work or weekend…
A little striped summer dress
Loose White Tank
White pants aren’t flattering for everybody, and I’m kind of over them. Which is why I prefer an off white, white, or pastel coloured loose trouser pant right now. You can so much with them and always look classy. These are gorgeous.
Colour block, earth tone wedge.
Wedges are a definite must. Instead of going for black look into something a little different with a neutral colourblock.
These will go with everything and can be dressed up or down.
Colourful Statement Necklace

Right now I am really into summer dresses. It’s all I’m looking for when I’m shopping – perfect, light, flowy and girlie dresses. However, to my dissapointment, I realized there were no maxi dresses to be found, when I had set out to spend an afternoon of shopping specifically for these dresses! My go-to shopping destinations, Zara and Forever 21, barely had any in site. Or if they did, were quite unflattering and did not fit my taste. Luckily I came accross this adorable hi-lo dress, which made me feel a little better.
Lucca Couture – Hi-Lo Shirt Dress
I purchased it in a pastely peachy-pink. It’s perfect for any occasion and will take me from day to night. Very sophisticated and girly. And although, I am not a fan of the hi-lo hem style, I do like this version of it because it isn’t too much.

Pants seem to be making more of a statement around this time. I’m normally always focusing on what to put on top but this season’s trends has me rethinking my style and wanting me to get funky with my pants.
Here is a pair I have my eye on:
Washborn – Chiffon Geometric Print Pant ($104.00)
These are really fun and colourful. However, they can be fairly easily matched with various pieces. Love the sort of boho-style to them.
Pair them with
Theory – Alastrina Top
Noir Jewelry – Neon Crystal Pendant (Obsessed)
A perfect hat can add that extra touch to an outfit. It can be accessory that is overlooked as most people focus on jewellery, shoes and bags, so this season take the opportunity to experiment with hats. Start off with a cheaper pair to see how you like them.
Here are a few under $100 that I’m currently crushing on:
Forever 21 – Floral Scarf Floppy Hat ($12.80)
Old Navy – Women’s Seersucker Fedora ($12.94)
Club Monaco – Jody Straw Hat ($69.50)
Pair any time with:
Old Navy – Women’s Smocked Tube Maxi Dress ($29.94)

The CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund winner, Altuzarra, has collaborated with J.Crew to create a capsule collection. The designer says the collection was inspired by “Brigitte Bardot in Saint-Tropez and French preppy style”. The collection is launching today (April 19) on jcrew.com. Here are some of my favourites:

We all know sandals are the go-to shoe once summer comes around. That’s why it’s important to have them be comfortable and more importantly practical. I like to pick out pairs that I can wear with multiple outfits. This season’s all about colour and colour blocking – none of the typical beige or black ladies!
Here’s a really cute Rebecca Minkoff sandal that fits the seasons’ trends as well as wardrobe staple.
