Vintage Dress, Forever 21 Belt, Urban Outfitters Cuff, Gryson Bag, Cynthia Vincent Wedges
Lucky Magazine has a section dedicated to clothes you can wear now that transition seamlessly into the next season. It’s a refreshing idea that you can use a single piece multiple times throughout the year with some simple adjustments. I picked up this mini dress at the flea market yesterday (for $10) and it proved to be the ideal weight for an afternoon trip to get frozen yogurt. Somehow I think it will be just as great with a pair of knitted tights, a long sweater vest and some black booties once the weather cools.

There’s something so wonderfully casual about summer that just doesn’t apply to the other seasons. Yesterday I spent the day by the Viceroy pool with co-workers and though I anticipated middle school-esque awkwardness, it turned out to be quite the opposite. A slightly overcast morning morphed into a beautiful afternoon and set the stage for a relaxing weekend.

Urban Outfitters Top, Michael Kors Watch, Skinny Style Ring, Korcula Ring, H&M Skirt, Seychelles Heels
I typically shy away from billowy tops since they’re not terribly flattering, but after stalking this top on Urban Outfitters for weeks, I finally took the plunge. I embraced its naturally effusive shape and bought a size that’s quite larger than I’d normally wear, but I think it just adds to its breezy silhouette. As an added bonus, it somehow transforms into a streamlined top that I can just as easily tuck into tulip skirts and wide-legged trousers.

I’m a big fan of simple clothes paired with bold jewelry. My mom first introduced me to Lanvin’s cluster necklace a few months back and I was enamored with the striking gemstones paired with a casual, grosgrain ribbon. Of course that kind of price is capable of turning your stomach so naturally, I moved on. Forever 21′s bib necklace packs the same dramatic punch, but with a much more manageable price. I swiped one up immediately when I saw it last week and I can’t wait to pair it with some of my plain, crew neck tops.
