cutout dress slouchy tote hermes watch

Summer is here and it’s time to bring out those simple, yet chic, dresses to work and play in. Playing up your curves is in this year so opting for cutout dresses that call attention to your waist is definitely a must. The Alice + Olivia dress, with a darling dipped back hem, is super effortless and is the perfect summer dress for curves. Style it down for a day feel and quickly turn it into a summer date night look by adding a few simple touches.

Adding a little gold to your outfit with the wedge heeled sandal by Aquazzura will be the perfect addition to your look. The leather trimming along with the lace contrast makes these espadrille inspired’s a must for your summer wardrobe. You’ll be able to wear these with just about anything in your closet this season. The Street Level tote is great if you’re going for more of a day look and it’s faux leather which makes this slouchy bag even more desirable. I’ve never found a slouchy tote I didn’t like and the animal lover in me is super excited this gorgeous summer bag is faux!

You’ve got your main pieces but your accessories will ultimately complete the look and this is where you bring out your personality. I am super into nudes, grays, and of course the color I am most obsessed with, rose gold. Quite honestly, in the beginning I did go with a gray strap watch to complete the look but I stopped myself and thought adding a little color to this look would be perfect. I did look at a few rose gold accessories but I didn’t think it was bold enough for this look. After all, this is a super clean look and it does need a pop of color. Ultimately, I decided to go with the stainless steel ladies watch from Hermès because I love the orange wrist strap. It’s just the right hint of color to take this look from safe to daring.

Don’t be afraid to play with your look until you settle on one that’s just you!

  1. The tote is beautiful and I love animals too so I’m excited it’s faux leather. It’s hard to find pretty faux bags.
