Thinking back to my Italian summer last year, from hunting down the best gelato in Florence to savoring the best meals in the heart of Rome, my style was all about striking that ideal blend of casual yet chic. This season, I'm all about embracing vibrant colors, fun prints, and pairing different textures! For a laid-back yet stylish look, a satin maxi skirt is your best friend. Pair it with a cute blouse or a simple tank, like this one from The Mayfair Group, and you're set for a day of exploring. Adding sneakers keeps the look comfortable and interesting. For hairstyles, I loved playing around with claw clips. My favorite was pulling some hair up into a claw clip for a half-up, half-down look – effortless and perfect for beating the heat during the day. 

As the sun begins to set, swap the sneakers for sleek sandals, throw on some statement earrings (how cute are these), apply a bold lip combo, and you're set for an evening stroll in the area or an impromptu dinner at a cozy trattoria.

The days are getting warmer which means it’s time to give your wardrobe a little refresh, and a little black dress is just the staple you need this Spring! There is just something so chic and simple about them that I'm particularly drawn to. Oh, and did I mention that there are endless ways to style the LBD?

For a polished look, pair your black midi dress with tall boots and a structured blazer, as seen here. You can never go wrong with a pair of chunky gold hoops and a classic shoulder bag to complete the look for that elevated yet, relaxed vibe. For a more casual, transitional look, swap out the blazer for a denim jacket, step into a pair of sneakers, and throw on your favorite shades. This satin midi is the kind of dress you can just throw on without thinking about it because it's so versatile to style. Effortless yet elevated outfits are what I'm all about — so prepare to see me wearing this midi dress, and alike, on repeat all season long. 

What I'm wearing: Similar Double Tie Front Blazer from Djerf Avenue, Glassons Satin Slip Midi Dress, Express Croc Embossed Boots, and the Coach Tabby Bag

Whether it's a meeting at 9 or brunch at 11, blazers have been my holy grail lately for any occasion. So, I wanted to share one of my favorite sleek and sophisticated looks that can be worn from day to night! Starting off with my blazer, which was layered over a pinstripe suit set from Glassons. I paired this with loafers from Princess Polly Boutique and a bright green French Connection shoulder bag that adds the perfect pop of color. The versatility of a blazer is truly unbeatable! A couple of other ways I enjoy styling one include layering it over a silk midi dress or casual day wear for a balanced silhouette that remains elevated. Now that Winter is in full swing, with New York Fashion Week just around the corner, expect to see blazers in a wide variety of styles from oversized to traditionally tailored all over the New York City scene.

What I'm wearing: Similar Pinstripe Waistcoat, Glassons Pinstripe Wide Leg Pant, Glassons Faux Leather Blazer, Princess Polly Loafer, and the French Connection Shoulder Bag
