Summer in Color (& Major Sale Alert!)

Thanks to Saks Fifth Avenue and ShopStyle for sponsoring this post

Can we talk about how happy I am that COLOR is back in style? There was a period where everyone’s Instagram feeds reflected shades of tan, nude and cream…. But color is back, baby! Everywhere from dresses to shoes and even fingernails, color is trending again, and I couldn’t be happier. As you can see from these photos, I’m celebrating with this colorful Alice + Olivia Lilian floral mini dress. It’s the perfect dress for leisurely lunches or afternoons spent sipping a glass of rosé. Even though it’s long-sleeved, it’s a light fabric that feels nice even in the heat. A braided belt gives the dress some shape and also accentuates your waist! I paired the dress with these fun scalloped Staud leather mules and a summer staple, the Cult Gaia Nano bag

Saks Fifth Avenue is currently having a designer sale and you can save up to 60% off select styles! Here are some more of my favorite styles for summer:

What is everyone up to this Thursday? We are busy packing for the beach – Chris and I are visiting our beach condo for the week and we are *actually* taking vacation days (that never happens!). I do have some blog posts scheduled for next week, though, so definitely check in for some fun posts. 🙂

    I love this floral mini dress and those mule heeled sandals. Perfect for Sunday Brunch or date night. I just purchased this dress for a mid summer party. This would go perfectly with my 5 inch ankle strap red sandals or 4.5 inch high heel pink mule sandals. Boyfriend would love this dress and heels on me. This dress deserves my best and highest summer heels. Most of my summer heels and wedges are 4 inches and up.

  2. How adorable is that Cult Gaia Nano bag!! Love the dress as well, such a pretty color!
