I cannot determine the label of the gorgeous dress above (or the chic pea wearing it!) but I have had it on my desktop, saved as a thumbnail, for months now. It’s too good not to share, so here it is, as the inspiration behind the sophisticated and chic finds below, which are mainly in ivory/natural colorways…
CHANEL-ESQUE QUILTED LEATHER BALLET FLATS (PEOPLE ADORE THIS BRAND; IN THIS COLOR, SUCH A FANTASTIC WARDROBE STAPLE)
DEAD OVER THESE CARAMEL-COLORED SHADES FROM LE SPECS (I ALREADY OWN AND LOVE THIS STYLE IN BLACK)
ELEGANT EQUIPMENT DRESS (ON SALE)
LACE-UP CANVAS MARYSIA DRESS (50% OFF)
DROOLING OVER THIS SIR DRESS, MARKED DOWN TO $144
MAJORLY ON-TREND FOR UNDER $70 — WOULD LOOK GREAT WITH JEAN SHORTS OR WHITE JEANS
OF COURSE HAD TO HAVE THESE CHANEL-INSPIRED PEARL SANDALS ($59!)
P.S. So hard to think about fall right now, but the one thing I know I will be buying as the summer winds down is a pair of new “daily” boots that are durable, flat/low-heel, warm, easy to slip on — AND CHIC. I had a pair of Isabel Marant shearling-lined flat boots last year that I absolutely wore into the ground. I am 90% sure I will be buying these No.6 shearling clog boots, which I know several of you already own. They were all over NYC last winter and I kind of fell in love with their Scandi-cool pragmatism given the weather here. I like the way the look with dark skinny jeans tucked in! (You can get the look for less with these.)
P.P.S. These legging/jogger hybrids are so chic!
P.P.P.S. If you’re relieved to find a roundup of floral-and-frill-free clothes here, you can find more in this vein under the “khaki” microtrend here.
