The Key Piece:

Zara Heart Print Dress

For me, summer is all about low maintenance dressing. Investing in a versatile printed dress means you can throw it on and go to brunch, the beach or an outdoor concert by simply switching up your shoes and accessories.

The Accessories:

Topshop Naive Cross Through Sandals

I’ll stock up on flat sandals in the summertime, but I still like to have some height. These chunky sandals are easy to walk in and can go with everything from a summer sundress to on-trend wide leg pants for a retro look.

Brixon Avalon Hat in Wine

A floppy wide-brimmed hat is the perfect accessory to bring along to outdoor music festivals and the beach. You’ll never be without shade and your skin will thank you.

Urban Outfitters Emma Sunglasses

No summer outfit is complete without a pair of sunglasses. The oversized round lenses on these shades are nice break from the usual Wayfarer and Aviator shapes.

BeautyCounter Lip Sheer in Currant

I like to keep my makeup light in the summer. This color goes on super smooth, has just enough color to brighten the face and leaves dry lips feeling soft and moisturized.

Urban Decay Naked Skin Beauty Balm

The added SPF in this multitasker means I can spend less time in front of the mirror and more time outside. It blends easily, blurs imperfections and is so light, that I forget I have anything on.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Wink of Pink

When I saw this pretty nude-pink at the Prabal Gurung Spring ’14 show, it was love at first sight. The neutral shade goes with everything in my closet and helps disguise the inevtibale chips and nicks from summer activities.
