black tank dress from Gap - very similar to this one here. And this season it's this drawstring black eyelet number that I've already worn twice in one week. If you ever feel like you have "nothing to wear" you need this dress!

Summer's officially begun and with it comes the heat and humidity. If you've visited my blog before you know that I love maxi dresses so summer time is fashion heaven for me. Maxi dresses suit my feminine style and aside from the aesthetics they genuinely keep me comfortable in the heat. Oh and protect me from bug bites too - bugs love me and I get bitten all over in the summer. So leg coverage is key!

One of the things I like most about living in Boston is how much character the city has and the beauty of its architecture. It has so many quaint corners and it's always fun to explore and see what I find. I was in Boston's Beacon Hill area when I stumbled across the most charming cobbled alley, pictured above. I was so grateful for my choice of footwear because I'm pretty sure I would have broken an ankle if I didn't have these low chunky heels on. As I always say, city sandals rock.

The good and bad news is there's a sea of options to choose from. I've waded through a ton of them and am sharing my top 5 favorite city sandals. Two things they all have in common is that they're super comfortable and affordable. I also picked neutral pairs that will go with almost any color scheme and work with both warm and cool tones. My favorite neutral colors this season are camel, burgundy, and pale pink. With these three colors I can style any outfit and avoid black and white if I want to.
Here are my 5 favorites right now, not listed in any particular order:

Yesterday was a perfect day for the farmer's market. The sun was out, the birds were chirping, I was with my family and all was right with the world! We went to a market that was a mix of produce, flowers and some street art, which was a nice surprise. We actually got there a little early, right as they were setting up, so it worked out perfectly for snapping a few pics for the blog. I love light breathable fabrics in the summer and a floaty skirt paired with cork and straw accessories is a fail-safe recipe for summer style. This weekend I debuted my new silk paisley skirt from Anthropologie, a store I haven't shopped at in a long time. The colors of this skirt are such a fun medley - peacock colors.

Hope everyone had an awesome weekend. We had a mix of sun and clouds and the day I wore this it was mostly clouds as you can see from the pictures. I'm not complaining though. I'm just happy it's not cold anymore and I can wear dresses and skirts! I love color but I also love neutrals, especially white, and nothing says summer quite like white. This midi-skirt I picked up is going to be such a summer staple and is incredibly well-made for the price. The length is classic midi, hitting a few inches below the knee - one of my favorite lengths right now. It's so flattering and elegant on women of all heights.

Happy Memorial Day weekend! I hope you have the best holiday weekend wherever you are. Now that we're getting some summer weather I'm going to be wearing lots of dresses...and hats. No hats in this post, though looking at my limp hair maybe a hat would have been a good call. I'm terrible with hair and getting worse instead of better. I have a hair cut in two weeks (new place) and will be barraging the poor hair stylist with questions on how I can style my hair better. She'll offer up all kinds of excellent advice and I'll nod back and then...my hair will still look the same because I'm that terrible with hair. Oh well!
I love all kind of dresses - solids and prints, long and short, classic, preppy or boho. I love it all. This dress is from a place I've been buying clothes at way too much lately. I really like the mix of reds, pinks, and blues, and the floral and paisley print next to each gives off a whimsical vibe that is so summery.

The weekend's finally here! It felt like a long week to me. How is everyone's Memorial Day weekend planning going? I'm still up in the air as far as plans but as long as it involves sun and fun I'm happy. Apologies that the leading picture in this post is an awkward pose with my handbag strap clearly tangled up between my blouse and vest but these are the realities of a windy spring day!There are two firsts for me in this post - my first time finding a lace popover that isn't too boxy and my first time wearing and reviewing Ann Taylor jeans in a "curvy" fit. I was very excited to try the jeans since my curves are simultaneously my greatest asset and the bane of my existence. If you're interested in Ann Taylor denim, read on for my review.
