I live in sundresses during the summer and I wear them to the point that I never want to see them again come the following year. For this reason, 99% of my summer day dresses cost less than $100, with many as low as $30. I find most of my favorites from Zara, H&M, and Forever 21. I get such great pleasure from taking an inexpensive dress, like this beautiful one from H&M, and accessorizing it in all sorts of ways. My good friend, Shani, and I discovered this particular dress on one of our shopping excursions and both bought it in different colors. We have been having the best time sending each other mirror selfies of the different ways we style it. Isn't it a blast to see how two people can conceptualize completely unique ways to wear the same dress? Do you and your friends do the same thing?

We've charmed in chiffon, we've lounged in linen, and we've lured in lace, but this summer, it's time to say "Yes WAY!" to crochet. Hailing from the counterculture of the late 60's and holding strong into the 70's, this granny-chic fabric is a groovy breath of fresh air in a sea of uptight, "clean line" styles. I acknowledge that a full-crochet rainbow dress may be too aggressive for some, but there are plenty of more subtle options (such as a white dress with crochet trim or a crochet vest to be worn over a button down blouse or shirtdress) that you can choose. You can avoid looking like a member of the That 70's Show cast by pairing these kitschy knitted pieces with modern accessories (like a moto-inspired cross-body bag)...or embrace the excessively retro movement and commit to a Jackie Burkhart moment with a boho bag and platforms. Your choice. Crochet pieces can be found at all price points from Miu Miu to H&M, or search Etsy for the authentic vintage selection!

Nobody could ever describe me as a wallflower...not in personality and certainly not in appearance. Interestingly enough, I did find one place in the world where I could actually almost blend in while wearing rainbow tie-dye. Last week in Miami, I paid a visit to the much buzzed about Wynwood Walls. I love street art because I love the juxtaposition of artistic expression in unexpected places, like the side of a run-down warehouse. The Wynwood Walls are unique in that they take over an entire district, covering 80,000 square feet of wall space by 50 artists from 16 countries. Whether or not you are a connoisseur of street art, the revitalization of a tattered warehouse district into a "Museum of the Streets" is something worth seeing...and photographing.
