This one is a bit out there even by my standards but it has become to prevalent to ignore! Cartoon prints are hot, ranging from cheap Mickey Mouse tees to Spongebob by way of Moschino. Cultural kitsch as it might be, when even high end lines like Givenchy are getting in on things, it will likely stick around for more than a season. Admittedly, the bright yellow stuff is a bit beyond my reach but I do really like the subtle Mickey and Bambi prints. Kawaii.

I was a little behind on spotting this trend but I’m on it now. But here we have it: the triumphant return of the Adidas Adilette slide. I guess this is an offshoot of that whole normcore thing but these I approve of. They are black and white, super simple in form and comfortable. Hello holy grail footwear. Get them now to enjoy for the rest of the summer. xx

White boots always seemed too 80s for me but lately they have kind of caught my eye. I guess the bootie-as-summer footwear trend has just caught on and this was it’s natural progression. And why not? These still have a summery feel while offering a look that is much sharper than your typical sandal. With the summer stuff going on sale rapidly, it shouldn’t be too difficult to track down some on sale right now that you can wear right into the fall.

Sure a tee shirt is kind of boring but also incredibly important to affirmed lazy-dressers like myself. This is what I feel comfortable in and wear the most, so it makes sense to get a really good one. Sometimes this is easier said than done though. Although I’ve bought cheap ones and pricier versions over the years, there’s not really a magic formula for what I like – which is great news really! All of these versions of the perfect tee look great although I am partial to the T by Alexander Wang ones in particular.

The little white dress is a summer classic – albeit one with a one-season life span (at least in my experience). It’s that sort of magical thing you can put on in the evening and look completely chic, even in flat sandals and little makeup. I especially love the Vince dress here. It’s short but the shift shape means it’s easy to wear that something super fitted. For me, I would wear almost any of these with a green army jacket during the cooler evenings along with some black Birkenstocks. Summer sartorial perfection.
