I celebrated the first official day of summer in New Hampshire with my best friends and my favorite summer styles. Wide brimmed hats, oversized sunglasses, and slide sandals are my current summer staples. And I’m so glad that the world has finally decided to ditch the old myth that black and blue don’t mix—it’s my go-to color combination these days. For a polished poolside look, I tend to reach for a solid-colored swimsuit when I want to wear a printed cover-up, and vice versa.

A crop top with a maxi skirt is a classic and easy summer combination. I love this cream-colored Groceries Apparel top so much that I bought two. Something about the cut just stands out to me. Groceries Apparel products are made from 100% organic and recycled materials, and though I’ll admit that I don’t typically go out of my way to buy environmentally friendly clothes, it’s always good to be aware of the low-impact labels that have high-impact style.       Photos by Brooke Appe.

Denim on Denim: Simplicity with an Edge

The only thing better than denim and leather is denim on denim and leather. Virtually every girl has the pieces for this outfit in her closet, and they create a reliable formula for a look that’s effortless, casual, rough around the edges, yet still polished. If you’re in the market for a chambray shirt, Madewell is the ultimate destination for all your redneck tuxedo needs.

Sleek, Simple & Classic

1Q1A8619 - Version 2Sandro ‘two-in-one’ jumper, Carmar jeans from LF, Jeffrey Campbell heels, Chanel eyeglasses.

I might be the only person on earth who ever prayed for impaired vision, but I’ve always envied people with glasses, so I felt nothing but joy when I recently found out I’m no longer part of the 20/20 club. These slightly oversized Chanel frames with a subtle cat eye—and this whole outfit—are a nod to my mother, the chicest person I know, and whose eyeglass collection might seriously rival Iris Apfel’s. (The lipstick is a nod to Iris.) My Sandro sweater is actually all one piece, creating the illusion of a collared shirt underneath without the bulk of layers. The ultra skinny jeans and minimal sandals with a lucite heel elongate the look and keep it super sleek.
