I don’t pay too much attention to trends anymore, which is why this tie-dye thing—which is very big at the moment—caught me by surprise. I dislike most things that skew too hippie-girl, and so I’m liking those pieces that are pretty clean-lined—nothing handkerchief-hem or flouncy—and I’d wear them with similarly clean-lined pieces. I think this button-down is right on the money in that respect.
This huge quilted tote by M.Z. Wallace has a slightly Japanese shibori vibe.
This tee could actually be totally office-appropriate with the right pencil skirt or skinny pants.
A well-priced and ladylike knife-pleat skirt that looks very Prada from back when Prada was really cool.
I’ve got a few pricier-than-usual tees in this post, and this 6397 number is one of them, but I just love that red.
And because I’ve got a few expensive tees in this post, here’s a cute cheap one.
And another cheap tee, in a very pretty lilac.
This blazer is just a kick.
These espadrilles don’t overdo it, which is why I think they work. Perfect for the beach.
An ideal tote for carrying to the greenmarket.
This charmeuse blouse is the most hippie-ish piece here, but the subdued colors keep it sophisticated.
This tee almost looks like a floral print.
A chic pull-on skirt that’d be great on really hot days.
I like the stripe action here.
Just a very cozy-looking hoodie in the always fun color combination of pink and red.
I want this dress very much—the silhouette is nice and relaxed, and the print makes a statement but doesn’t overwhelm.
A lightweight summer scarf that’d be aces with an all-white outfit.
And finally: I think this cami is just gorgeous—brown and red are an unexpectedly good combination—and I would wear it peeking out from under a blazer or cardigan.
