For Love & Lemons is a great brand for flirty dresses (I wore a similar style in a previous post here). This one’s a favorite because the bell sleeves make it all-season appropriate. The floral pattern is perfect for warm weather, but it works just as well when it’s cold with tights and chunky boots.
Trapeze dresses can be tricky, and my styling suggestion for anyone petite is a) have a tailor take in the sides a bit so the swing-y silhouette doesn’t overwhelm you or b) throw a belt around your waist to re-emphasize your shape. I like mine short (clearly) but get it hemmed an inch or two above your knee and you should be set.
For Love & Lemons ‘Daytripper’ dress (similar style here and here), Nila Anthony hologram snake crossbody, Lennon oversized sunnies (a summer favorite!) and Madden Girl ‘Dafney’ sandals (on sale!).
You all know I’m a huge fan of Sam Edelman’s ‘Gigi’ sandal, but he has another style this season that caught my eye. The ‘Ardella’ (pictured above) has every element that makes for a staple shoe you’ll wear again and again.
First, its lace-up front reminds me of the Ann Demeulemeester’s I’ve been dreaming of for ages (as a side note, Jeffrey Campbell’s ‘Meriwidow’ boot is almost identical). Second, the ‘Ardella’ has a low, chunky heel that will remain comfortable while providing a little extra lift for dresses and skirts. Third, the laces ensure this shoe is adjustable to your foot width and will fit perfectly, plus the straps are soft suede, which means they’ll be easy to break in. Last but not least, the three shades this sandal comes in are chic neutrals that will complement almost anything.
My favorite is the putty color featured, but the ‘Ardella’ is also available in black and moss green.
This skirt. This skirt. It’s the coolest thing I’ve seen in weeks. One part mermaid one part style maven, it’s a piece that stands perfectly on its own.
A close second, the Deux Lux mini cross body bottom right is one of the cutest bags ever. Its gold and silver mix makes it versatile, and its small size makes it a special, but understated outfit accent.
