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

My summer in the Caribbean this year has been such a dream, from cruising with Carnival to different islands to eating the most delicious cuisines my taste buds have ever tasted – I was truly living the sweet life on deck. And while I enjoyed my summer in the Caribbean, I should also note that it was very humid out. So, when it came to getting ready each day, anything lightweight and uncomplicated was the goal, with skirt set combos and dresses being my go-to staples. 

Seriously, the styling was that easy. Naturally, I found myself embraced by a REVOLVE summer consisting of maxi hemlines and minimal outfitting, like this dress styled here with a cream cardigan, sandals, and a tote to complete the look. Ahead, I share all the details on this look and linked items alike from REVOLVE, that can hopefully serve as inspiration for your next trip.

WHAT I WORE — Endless Rose Ribbed Cardigan, Revolve x House of Harlow Kimora Maxi Dress, Steve Madden Santina Slide
