Linen is basically the fabric of summer. It's cool, breezy, and has an undone sophisticated vibe that is perfect for the season. I usually go for lighter fabrics that don't tend to wrinkle as much but I caved when I saw this dress while shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Purple typically isn't a color I wear a lot, but for some reason when I saw it I was intrigued. It's a cool lilac that reminded me of a lavender field, and the shape and cutout details seemed to strike a balance between romantic and sexy. 

If you aren't super into plunging necklines and open sides you may not love this, but I thought the detailing was a nice balance, especially since the dress was pretty long and billowy on my petite frame.

I played up the feminine vibe of the dress with these floral detail sandals from Zara. They have a sexy cage upper and are adorned with colorful 3D flowers. I am absolutely in love with them, and even though they are a high, thin heel, it's just thick enough to make you feel a little bit more comfy than you would in a classic stiletto. And for a little pop of color, I finished the look with my bold vintage Louis Vuitton.

Summer Dressing Made Easy

Summer Style in Brooklyn

Tomorrow is the official first day of Summer! It’s one of my favorite times of year – the city is full of sunshine, the rooftops are poppin and the energy is over the top fun. Summer fashion calls for bold colors, fun patterns and interesting details. It’s way too hot to worry about what to wear, so I tend to stick to my formula for creating a standout look with ease.

It starts with a statement piece, like this skirt. I got this from SGTC Clothing, an amazing Instagram that let’s you shop authentic Nigerian pieces straight from the gram. Just scroll through their feed and DM them your picks to place an order. The team sent me this amazing color-block skirt, and it came in no time. The silhouette is fun and the print is unique and very on trend. 

To let the skirt shine, I paired it with a simple tube top from Fashion Nova. Have you shopped their site yet? If you haven’t you definitely need to take a look. They have everything from the wild, trendy, super sexy, and plenty of basics like this top or my go to jeans.

Then I took the rest of the look up a notch with the accessories! Bold statement earrings in a color palette that complimented the skirt were the perfect finishing touch, along with the Ark bag that I can’t live without, and a pair of can’t miss me neon sandals.
