Effortless Summer Black

Heat requires an element of effortlessness, and with this adorable little lace dress from LuLu*s, I'm set. Body-con has become my flavor this year, but somehow, I've fallen in love with this kicky little skirt.  With a flexible curving band at the hem, it boasts plenty of volume with ease. Add these super sexy summer strappies from Chinese Laundry and the most beautiful leather statement bucket bag by Nashville's own Bone Feather, and it's a black look perfect for this season's humidity.

Grey Suede Leather Fringe Purse

I've been schlepping the same olive green fringe clutch from ZARA around for years. All that wear and tear was starting to show, and I'm always down for an upgrade. Enter the If You Frill Grey Suede Leather Fringe Purse from LuLu*s. A longer fringe, a beautiful light grey hue, and an envelope flop-over? I'm so sold. Plus, suede is one of my favorite things to incorporate into summer accessories. It's weight always brings a welcomed balance to this season's lighter eyelets and airy clothing.

Ivory Scalloped Lace

My bread and butter has always been a simple white dress. Even with my newfound love of booty shorts and body-con midi dresses, I still find myself grabbing for the ivory lace I've always adored. This Legacy in Lace Ivory Lace Dress is my new favorite. Figure-skimming for a hint of fit, short sleeves, full attached lining, and a scalloped hem. I'm feeling summer ready. Find this little number and more in the LuLu*s dress shop.

Denim Patchwork + Apache Arrowhead

The sweetest little patchwork denim mini isn't complete without a sidekick summer accessory. Enter Harper Hallam's Apache Necklace with a hematite arrowhead, crysoprase knotted lariat, and a long gold chain. Turquoise hues with an all-white look is the ultimate summer look, but I can't stop pairing this bauble with different hues of blues. Maybe it's Nashville's ongoing downpour of late-spring rain.
