Publishing two posts bright and early this morning! The first: a bit of fiction. The second, here: my favorite ways to nail all the prevalent trends this season…

summer 2022 trends

1 // SCRUNCHIE SUITSHunza G is the name of the game here, but you can get the look for less with this chic J. Crew or these wildly popular Aerie lookalikes.

2 // PATTERNED PAREOSAgua Bendita is the lustworthy label in this category (<<currently on sale for about $100 off!), but you can find lots of affordable similar styles on Etsy and Amazon (<<this last one recommended by Magpies!). If you’re not into pareos as a general proposition, I shared a ton of affordable cover up options here!

3 // STRAW BAG — This particular Loewe bag has been all over the place the past few seasons. I love this summer’s pistachio green variation — one of my favorite colors this season. You can get the look for less with this Demellier, this Poolside, this Etsy style, or this larger Mango riff.

4 // PLATFORM ESPADRILLE SANDALS — I’ve already talked your ear off about my pair; this J. Crew variation is a fabulous twist on the trend at an attainable price.

5 // CROCHET TOP AND SKIRT — Just so chic as a pair. Crochet is back in such a big way!

6 // RAFFIA FLOWER EARRINGS — Under $10 and perfectly pitched for the season. Raffia has been everywhere; here’s a great way of adding an inexpensive exclamation point to your outfit.

7 // CANDY STYLE NECKLACES — Maison Monik has so many fun pieces in this vein (e.g., this pink one and this green one seen above), but another slightly higher end brand that a lot of chic peas seem to be gravitating towards in this category is Theodosia. I’ve been seeing ladies layer two on top of one another! For a big investment in this trend, Irene Neuwirth is leading the way, but to get the look for less: check out these fun ones at Anthro!

8 // SEASHELL EARRINGS — Sea-life inspired pieces have been all over the place this season; these are a recent discovery I can’t stop eyeing. Love the combo of raffia and seashells, and you can get these for an extra 20% off using code YOUROCK. (I have also been getting a lot of mileage out of my dramatic seashell necklace!)

9 // CATEYE SUNGLASSES — This specific pair from Celine has been everywhere, but you can get the look for less with these Chiara Ferragnis or this $20 pair from FP.

10 // BOTANICAL MINI DRESS — This dress is simply spectacular. The hand-embroidered botanical motif is beyond!

11 // KNOT BAG — Under $30 and heavily inspired by Bottega.

12 // MATCHING TOP AND SKIRT — Matching sets have been everywhere this summer, and I love the idea of this high-waisted maxi skirt on its own or with the matching top. The pattern is bold and unexpected — bold colors are big this season in general.

13 // WOVEN DUMPLING BAG — Under $200 and will go with everything in your wardrobe, whether casual stripes or a cocktail dress. This style reminds me of the more expensive variation from Mansur Gavriel.

14 // STRAPPY AND PUFFY SANDALS — Strappy sandals AND puffy sandals have been very in this year — this pair combines the best of both worlds with strappy laces and a puffy footbed. Under $100!

15 // LINEN MINI — Simple and elegant. An answer to the puffed sleeves that have been dominating the dress market for the past few seasons.

16 // WOVEN WEDGES — This pair from Staud has been selling out all over the place. I love the unexpected polish of the leather upper at the toe!

17 // STRIPED TOP AND SKIRT — Another impossibly chic matching set. I love the skirt by itself, too! More great statement skirts for this season here.

P.S. A chic everyday outfit.

P.P.S. The wonder of birding.

P.P.P.S. On a class that did not work for me.
