Happy Friday! I’ve had the busiest week ever so I’m keeping today’s post short and sweet – with a dreamy watercolor print dress that I found during a recent sale at Mint Julep in Brookline. I paired it with a short striped jacket (for a little pattern mixing) and lots of shiny accessories: mirrored sunglasses, silver hologram pumps and a metallic leather clutch. A loose ponytail keeps the look slightly undone (always a good thing) – perfect for a warm summer night out.

I hope you have an amazing weekend! (Lots of good posts coming soon, I promise.)

I’m a sucker for J.Crew prints, especially when they’re as wild and vibrant as the one sweeping across these silk shorts (bonus: they’re an extra 40& off.)”. And I’m weirdly obsessed with this “dressed up short” combo. It has that effortless tomboy edge that you just can’t get with skirts and dresses in the summer. The slouchy cut makes these feel like gym shorts, but they work with both casual and dressier combos. I paired them with a silk tank on one occasion, a chambray button-down on another – and then with this white tee and navy blazer (clearly they’ve been getting a lot of airtime).

A few subtle extras – like vintage sunglasses, metallic textured pumps and minimal jewelry – help elevate the simple combo but keep the shorts in the spotlight. Where they should be.

Shorts: J.Crew Collection gemstone floral shorts // Shirt: James Perse white tee // Blazer: Zara (similar here) // Shoes: Saint Laurent snake effect pumps // Bag: Lauren Merkin mini marlow (other colors here and here) // Sunglasses: vintage Maui Jims (hand-me-down from my dad) // Jewelry: J.Crew and Madewell cuffs (similar here and here), stacking rings c/o The Love Knot Shop

Happy Friday! Keeping it simple today with a fit and flare Zara dress (currently on sale!) and a few pops of bright, contrasty color. Unlike the pink maxi dress from earlier this week (which didn’t need much help making a statement), I decided to work backwards this time and build my outfit around some statement-making accessories instead. I love these gorgeous bracelets from local jewelry designer Jacqueline Lapuck who I met at the Ku De Ta store opening in Chestnut Hill a few weeks ago (her bracelets are available at Ku De Ta, too!). It might be a little hard to tell in my late-evening photos, but these bracelets almost seem to glow in person – they’re handmade from neon Swarovski pearls and look amazing stacked or alone (I’ve been wearing them all week and I’m convinced the bright neon helps brighten my mood, too). The finishing touches? A pair of patent raspberry pumps (60% off at Neiman Marcus, you guys…), my favorite citrus clutch and a dainty gold necklace via RocksBox.

Enjoy the weekend!
