This summer I’m all about soft, romantic silhouettes and fabrics…ok, who am I kidding? That’s every summer! I spotted this Lovers + Friends dress on Shopbop last month and I couldn’t resist picking it up. I love the lace-up neckline, comfortable elastic waist and sheer sleeves in romantic summer lace. It’s the perfect dress for a summer date night.

Since the sleeves are sheer, they breathe really well so you can wear it on a summer day without getting overheated. It’s one of those dresses that makes getting ready so quick and effortless – you don’t need a lot of accessories and it looks best with soft and natural makeup.
Surprise, surprise… I bought another over-the-shoulder dress! I can’t get enough of them this summer! They’re so comfortable and effortlessly chic with the added bonus of no strappy tan lines. I picked up this pale blue linen number at one of my new favourite online shops – Reformation. Be careful ladies, the dresses on this site are seriously addictive!

The relaxed fitting Tennessee Dress takes the over-the-shoulder trend to a new level with an oversized ruffle bodice and mini-pockets. It’s the perfect length to wear with sneakers or flat sandals for a casual day time look. I styled it with my new Feiyue white sneakers from DSW for a cute athleisure look.
Every spring/summer wardrobe needs an easy breezy shirtdress. You can wear it to work and straight to the patio for happy hour afterwards! I found this floral version at Aritzia and I love the lightweight yet fully lined silk georgette fabric, the flattering curved hemline and the adjustable cinched waist.

I styled my new shirtdress with a simple cross-body bag, sunnies and a pair of Amalthia slip-on shoes from Geox. Since the dress is relatively short, I think it looks best with flat shoes or sandals.
If you’ve been out and about in the city on a sunny day this season, you’ve no doubt noticed the latest trend to hit the fashion scene. Off-the-shoulder, over-the-shouder, cold shoulder – whatever you’re calling it – it’s all about exposing those shoulders! I love how instantly romantic and dreamy this style looks – it’s effortlessly sexy too! I found this off-the-shoulder maxi dress on one of my favourite online shops and I can’t wait to wear it to my next summer event!

This gorgeous off-the-shoulder maxi dress is the perfect piece for music festivals or special nights out in the moonlight. The fabric is super soft and lightweight, featuring a shirred bodice ending in a skirt with a front slit to show off a little leg or your favourite summer shoes.
We all have a little black dress (or a few) in our wardrobe, but summertime calls for a little white dress! Something light and airy that shines brightly in the sun and brings out your summer glow. Whether it’s silk, linen or lace, paired with heels, sandals or sneakers – your little white dress will be a go-to look all summer long.
Dress: Joe Fresh, Shoes: Soludos from Shopbop, Hat: Aritzia, Bag: RokCork, Watch: Cluse
This one is from Joe Fresh (under $60!) and I love that it features both linen and lace with chic peekaboo panels and scalloped hemlines. It’s such a classy length too, hitting right at the knee (on me), I can style it with heels or flats.
