Summer Faves...

 I am a huge fan of acquiring wardrobe items that stand the test of time.  That said, in the realm of fast fashion, it can be a challenge to find (even a pair of jeans) that won't date themselves after a few years.  There are a couple of tried and true pieces that go the distance.  The first is a denim shirt.  Find a basic style, in a classic wash, and you'll wear it for decades.  Laundering and wear will only make it more covetable, as time passes.  I've had this one (from Madewell) for a couple of years, but I know I'll be reaching for it for years to come!

A less obvious choice is this stunning, floor-length silk maxi (Calyspo St. Barth).  Although the hot pink hue is totally on trend right now, pink is a color that simply does not go out of style.  The classic bustle waist, and side slit, make it wearable for just about any occasion.  It easily goes formal, paired with a silk camisole and statement jewelry.  For now, I'm wearing it for everyday special.  Love it with a simple white tee and tassels for warmer days, and layered with my tried and true denim shirt when the temps dip down.

I am loving the movement of this skirt!  Even dressed down, it's a show stopper!

And, because the pink shines on it's own, I love to bring darker neutral like olive and navy to accessorize.  This Shop Maison KMV Camo Clutch is the perfect addition for evening cocktails...love how it pops against the bright pink backdrop!  These have just been restocked in the shop, and are going fast!
So, my advice for adding to your wardrobe is to look for classics, like a denim shirt...and find some favorite go-to's, like this gorgeous silk maxi!  They are always worth the investment!
