This past weekend gave me my first taste of summer, and there’s no turning back now. I’m all in. I wore a white sundress, saw the Good Humor truck in my neighborhood, and attended my first Nationals game of the season in stunningly low-humidity 70 degree weather. This makes me oh-so-excited for throw-and-go summer gear — effortless, airy separates and classics that make the summer breeze on by. I’m thinking of a linen throw-on dress (CP Shades) with a simple tortoise necklace ($275, Natori):
I’d add only a few raffia bangles ($20 apiece, Ben-Amun):
Or, how about these easy-on chambray shorts (Elizabeth + James, $245, Net-A-Porter — or get the look for less with this $60 Madewell pair) with a striped Lem Lem top (obsessed with this brand — $200, LemLem — for more colors, see here) and a simple necklace (Marc Jacobs, $130, Ssense)?
Perfect with your handy, retro-styled camera ($109, Lomography):
Throw your stuff in the basket of a Brooklyn Cruiser ($549, Brooklyn Cruiser), and you are good to go:
I’m also loving easy-on denim dresses in interesting/low-key shapes, like tunics and shifts. This Acne style ($300, Net-A-Porter) caught my eye as just the thing to wear with a neon-hinted necklace ($80, Anthropologie):
