1. Topshop Bonded Peplum Jacket ($110) // 2. Yosi Samra Campbelle Sandal ($130) and Club Monaco Eve Sandal ($140) // 3. Wallis Printed Shift ($78) // 4. Tai Stone Stud Earrings ($40) // 5. Bahailiu Top Handle ($225) // 6. J.Crew Flutter Sleeve Top ($70)
This silvery-grey Philosophy jacket has a similar look for under-$75. I also found this really cool dress from WHBM with peplum, printed top and a pencil skirt bottom. It’s perfect for the office, and just $80.
Two. One day of nice weather and I am ready for flat sandals. They’re my second favorite shoe, next to tall boots. This pair from Yosi Samra would look great with a black cotton dress, and the Club Monaco pair would look good with anything.
Need cheaper sandal options? Bloomingdale’s has some great pairs in the $50-$100 range, like these Ivanka Trump sandals in a mix of tan and gold. Nordstrom also has some cute choices for under-$100, including these Steve Madden’s, which would be great for casual Friday.
Three. This dress has a throwback style with a top that makes the dress look like it’s two pieces, but isn’t. It would be great for work or dinners out. They also make a similar style in navy blue lace, perfect for summer weddings. Wallis has some lovely dresses for sale right now, but like with all UK e-tailers, make sure to read the return and shipping info carefully.
Four. If you need to bring a little color into your wardrobe, bright or pastel earrings are a good choice. I think having the color next to your face makes more of an impact than wearing it on your fingers or wrists. In the under-$25 category, I found these fuchsia Edelman studs and these mint, cluster studs from Betsey Johnson.
Five. A pale pink purse would be a great bag for summer if you’re not feeling a bolder color like red or cobalt. In the under-$100 range, this Olivia and Joy satchel really caught my eye. Prefer your pink less pale? This Relic satchel comes in a hue somewhere between shell and coral.
Six. Cap sleeves are a good choice for warmer weather because they offer a bit of coverage and style. I like these flutter sleeves because they bring some lightness to the look. This Ann Taylor top offers a similar look in pale grey or navy print (also in petites). This embroidered top from Express also has a great look to it and comes in white and black. Plus-size? Try this Land’s End top with a fluttery sleeve.
