When spring and summer roll around, all you want to do is escape the doldrums of winter, chuck your puffy jackets at the slightest hint of sunshine, and whip out the airy and breezy styles that will be your uniform for the warm months. If you’re a fan of ethereal styles, one of the season’s hottest trends will be suit you just fine. Much like fringe, flowing maxi dresses in bohemian patterns and prints are taken right out of the 1970s. What we love about this trend? It will keep you feeling cool and looking foxy.
Every fashionista has heard the age-old rule that one shouldn’t wear white after Labor Day. But why is this a rule, and more importantly, why should we listen? Rules are made to be broken after all, especially in fashion! Although you may not want to wear an all-white maxi dress with a big floppy straw hat, there are ways to work in white, all the way into next summer!
A white top never goes out of season! If you want to keep rocking those delicate eyelets and crochet-trimmed tops, add some fall color, and a dark blazer. Keep that white blazer out by pairing it with darker, black pieces.
Keep rocking those white jeans by pairing them with fall staples like flannel, and a pair of leather booties.
See? Wearing white after summer ends is easy!

We’ve been seeing sheer styles all over the city this summer, and with good reason! Dressing with sheer fabrics ensures that you’re covered up, but also allows for a more playful layering style. Sheer pieces are also often airy, perfect for those sweltering summer days.
We love the bold colors of this outfit, and the smattering of red shapes on the top. This outfit embraces sheer style from top to bottom. And those shoes.
Sheer is sophisticated when paired with tights and a long dramatic coat. This is a great way to don those sheer frocks when autumn comes a’ knocking.
While we normally wouldn’t dare wear a bandeau, it looks perfectly pretty when worn under a tucked in shirt. Class mixed with sass.
Here’s a patterned sheer dress in a soft pastel. It’s light, comfortable, but still super chic.

This is the perfect time to hold a seasonal summer dinner party, but hosting your own party can cause a lot of stress. Make sure all of your bases are covered with these tips!
Eating by Candlelight – If you want to introduce candles into your party decor, keep them unscented. The focus should be on the delicious food, not the coconut vanilla scent of your pillar candles, as delicious as it is!
Keep Them Short – Centerpieces should be small and short so that guests have the ability to see each other over the table. You can always showcase taller arrangements on separate tables.
All You Can Eat – Buffet-style dinner parties are all the rage. Why? Everyone gets just what they want, and it’s easy to do!
In the Know – Make sure you check to see if your guests have any serious dietary restrictions.
Savory Seasonals – Try to base your menu off what is in season. The ingredients will be at their most flavorful, and the least expensive.
When it comes to summer dining, we prefer the casual, rustic approach. The effortless style pairs so well with carefree energy of the season, and we love the mix of natural, earthy elements and florals for a look that isn’t too feminine but also has just the right dash of “pretty”.
One staple of a rustic dining experience is wooden acccents. A wooden table makes for a great backdrop for bold, beautiful blooms.
This style also features a lot of greenery. Flowers aren’t the only centerpieces. Leaves and branches play an essential role as well!
A rustic-style table is the perfect backdrop for a fresh summer meal!
