1. Rebecca Taylor Asymmetric Dress ($295) // 2. Ferragamo Varina Flats ($327) // 3. Tucker Ruched Halter Dress ($371) // 4. Chain Bracelet ($9) // 5. Navy Floral Zip Top ($44) // 6. Robert Rodriguez Striped Skirt ($288) // 7. Knots and Anchors Bracelet ($46) // 8. Coach Leather Basket Clutch ($188)

One.  Can we just have a moment of silence for this dress?  Phenomenal.  It also comes in navy, and regardless of which color you choose, this dress is a showstopper.

Want something similar for a LOT less? I ordered this Antonio Melani dress ($55), and it is such a great dress for the price.

Two. Ferragamo created an ad campaign showcasing their Varina and Vara shoes on the feet of 21 of the world’s most stylish women, and it is impossibly gorgeous.  It’s caused me to have Varina flats on the brain for weeks now.  If you want the look for somewhat-less, I would suggest these Kate Spade flats.

Three. This dress is so chic, I just adore it.  The high neck halter is a good choice for those of us with smaller busts.  (Though you may need a backless, strapless bra.)  I also like this $89 dress from Ann Taylor, and this maxi-dress from Caslon.  If you’re plus-sized, give this dress a look.  Petites may like this long dress with tribal print.

Four. I like this bracelet because it looks like this much more expensive cuff from Jennifer Fisher.  It also comes in a thinner bangle for those of you who prefer something a bit more subtle.  The thinner bracelet could easily be layered with other cuffs (like this one, and this one) for a chic look.

Five. This floral top would look great with trousers and a long necklace or with a brightly colored pencil skirt.  I don’t usually wear a lot of big prints, but the neutral palette gives this a more subtle look.

Six. This striped skirt reminds me of warm summer days and sail boats.  It would look great with a button-up blouse tucked into it.  Want the look for less?  Check out this navy and yellow Anne Klein skirt or this not-so-perfect Raoul skirt.

Seven.  Colored enamel bracelets are on my must-have list for summer.  You can use them to coordinate or contrast with colored clothing pieces or liven up neutrals.  This chain bracelet is fab, but I also like this simple bangle set or this fabulous printed bangle.  And if you’re looking for variety in texture, Neiman Marcus has you covered.

Eight.  I love clutches, but carrying one in the crook of your arm can be uncomfortable if you’re forced to do it for too long.  So when I spotted this Coach bag with a clutch shape and handle, I fell in love.  If you want a similar look for less, this Limited clutch is a steal.  You can also try a wristlet clutch, like this fun geometric print purse that costs under-$25.

    If you like the striped skirt, check out Corilynn, she has almost the exact same skirt (called the awning skirt) in red, navy, and green for about $100 as well as some other cute chevron and dot patterns. I discovered her last yr on Pintrest and own the red awning skirt. It’s amazing! The material is really thick canvassy so the pleats stay really crisp and nice. She’s a great seamstress, has wonderful customer service, cute blog, and is a great small business owner!

    How strict is the no-white-after-Labor-Day rule? I love that Rebecca Taylor dress and have been looking for a work dress in white, but at that price (and look), I’m going to want to wear that puppy far past August recess.

      Some women take it VERY seriously, I am not one of them. I would wear this dress with black tights and boots in the winter and with chunky belted cardigans in the fall.

    I just saw this skirt on Etsy before checking out this posting. https://www.etsy.com/listing/73353113/red-and-white-striped-katie-skirt-with?ref=shop_home_active. Pretty similar to the one shown but less expensive
