Goodbye, July! The weather was much nicer around these parts which meant more opportunities to wear dresses! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: dresses are so versatile and perfect for those mornings when you’re running late or seem to not have anything to wear. Which outfit was your favorite?

You know when you walk into a store and one thing catches your eye and you make a beeline for it? This is what happened when I saw this dress. Stripe dress in a alternating pale peach and ivory color and the perfect fit-and-flare silhouette? Sold! I may or may not have been so focused on admiring this dress that I temporarily forgot my original intent of going into the store. Priorities, first! My closet may or may not be thanking me as I squeeze one more very necessary dress into it. No more dresses…for now.

Is it just me or do you try to swirl around while wearing a pleated skirt? I remember, as a child, I used to be so fascinated by the way the fabric spun. During a recent shopping trip to J.Crew, I saw this navy pleated skirt on the rack and immediately knew I had to purchase it. Not only is the navy color classic but the length is perfect – not too short, not too long. I brightened up with outfit with a blush pink knit top that is adorned with gold metallic accents at the neckline. It matched perfectly with my pink and grey colorblock clutch, and gold heels. Do you have a skirt that reminds you of your childhood?

The weather’s gotten warmer and thus, a transition to dresses and skirts. This shift dress is one of my absolute favorites because of the structure and cut. The neutral black and white palette allows me to accessorize with different colors to create unique outfit feels. I wore this to work with a black blazer and gave it a little bit of contrast by pairing it with burgundy heels and a clutch in matching hues.

Sarah Hyland is probably best known for her role on Modern Family as Haley Dunphy. While her character is known for testing boundaries and her provocative outfits, this look that Sarah wore at the recent Marie Claire Fresh Faces party was very feminine and fashion-forward. Her crop top and skirt are both from Milly and embraces this season’s “in” look. The skirt’s blush color adds a bit of softness against the white crop top. To add a little contrast and color to the outfit, she paired it a beautiful beaded clutch from Jenny Packham (“Nouvelle Rose”). Want to get her look? Consider this crop top from TopShop, a BCBG flared hem skirt, and this sparkly clutch from Nila Anthony. Perfect flirty and feminine outfit!
