Delicate, dainty rings are everywhere right now. Even though I have big hands and sort of mannish fingers (I’ve always worn bigger rings in an attempt to make my hands look smaller), I really love this jewelry trend. I’ve rounded up some of my favorites here — stack them, wear them high on your knuckles, mix metals and shapes. I particularly love the rose gold and black diamond combination.

This is a great Friday dress — it’s appropriate to wear to the office, but it can easily transform into a hot little number for a dinner date. On those days when you don’t have time to go home and change after work, all you need are heels and some sparkly jewelry to upgrade your look.

I got this dress at Target for $20, and H&M sells one that is nearly identical. My friend Margaux and I ended up wearing the matching dresses to work last Friday (see Instagram photo) and everyone kept asking if we’d planned it (surprisingly, we hadn’t). Check out some more work-to-play dress picks in the “shop the post” section below.

There’s really no good way to dress for extreme heat and humidity. It was 100 degrees on Friday when we took these pictures, and the air was intensely heavy. It was the kind of day where it feels like you’re moving in slow motion, and there’s simply no way to avoid total body dewiness. It’s sort of hard to tell from the photos (other than my flushed cheeks/shiny face), but it was miserable. You can, of course, avoid going outside when it’s so hot – but I’ve been trying to take advantage of sunny days (the summer is already speeding by). Despite my complaining, I know I’ll miss them once winter hits.

Blue and white is such a classic color combination for summer – it’s crisp and eye-catching, and provides a great backdrop for bright accessories. This gauzy top from Anthropologie was a good choice for the heat – breathable, thin, doesn’t show sweat. And while denim isn’t exactly breezy in high temperatures, this skirt didn’t cling to my thighs like some thinner materials do (I hate when that happens). Wearing comfortable sandals and pulling your hair up (so the back of your neck isn’t sweltering) definitely help in the heat, though I followed neither of these tips.
