Absence makes the heart grow fonder, right? It's hard to believe that I've been back from vacation for two weeks already! The tropical weather seems like a distant memory...we're all about the rain, here in the Northeast. Thankfully, the J.Crew July delivery has arrived...to remind us that summer is, in fact, just around the corner!
And, they've brought a favorite color palette to play...adore navy and orange together! Fantastic on yet another beautiful, bold, tropical print! Looks perfect paired with stripes.
Of course, I am acutely aware, as a stylist, that many fear this bold shade. But, I am here to let you in on a little secret...orange is the most universally flattering color in existence. You know what that means? It looks good on you...with or without the summer glow! If you're still on the fence, try it out on a bottom. Lots of great separates in this print! And, this chambray beach pant? Scoop. it. up. It nearly sold out the first day! Great fit. Lightweight. Super comfy.
Check. Check. Check.
The easiest investment in the color is a scarf. Loving it paired with a go to outfit for me, all season long. Navy beach sweater, white shorts, tan sandals. Always works!
Tons of great sandy shades of sandals...like this amazing lace up pair, that I know I've mentioned before! More great graphic tees to come...like this sunset palm!
Love that J.Crew has carried through the clean, black and white palette for the last few months. Makes getting dressed a breeze! These embroidered shorts, though...you probably need them. And I'm prepared to wear this dress every. single. day.
More embroidery, on a flattering boat neck gauze dress.
Told you tassels were a thing! J.Crew's take on the trend...
More navy, and the most fun, fruity graphic!
Pretty medallion print, perfect for summer festivities. And lots of airy linen sweaters for chilly nights.
People don't generally associate burgundy (or oxblood, for that matter) with summer, but it is so fresh paired with navy and white. Love! And let's start embracing the bandanna...cause it's here! Taking the place of heavy jewelry pieces, and adding color.
Love the embroidery...and my favorite sandals!
Embroidery. It's a thing. Enough said.
White jewels are back! Gorgeous against bright color, or glowy skin. Even better added to white on white!
This cuff is stunning! The white stone spikes...amazing!
These pieces feel vaguely reminiscent of the brand's most recent collaboration, with Maine-made, The Ropes bracelets. I guess these would be the glam sister to the brightly woven additions to any outfit.
A lot of vintage appeal in the newest jewelry collection, and a large selection of brand new baubles.
More white...on classic tortoise. These earrings are seriously major! Massive statement...gorg!
A closer view of the tassels.
And, lastly, my favorite, little, adorable family! Never bored will exist in numbers in my house...everybody's gettin one! The cutest dress ever, for you're little minis. And the perfect skirt silhouette, continued, in a pretty matelasse.
And because, again, it is chock full of adorableness...the minis get their own post Monday.
Come check it out!
