I’ve noticed a couple of new Summer capsule drops and vacation edits from some brands I shop from so thought I would share a few favorites. If you are like me and prefer clean, minimalist designs, summer dressing using to be so hard; it’s gotten so much better. Now there are more choices than I can afford or possibly wear! I have planned one summer trip to Italy–Rome and Puglia, so am trying to figure out what I want to add to take. While I want a lot, I don’t need much, and I want each piece to feel special. I will do a packing list once I have it done.
Toteme’s new Summer capsule, which came days after their pre-Fall launch (go figure), has many appealing items including this white broderie anglaise dress below. (Holding image above is also Toteme.)
It is just the right bit of feminine for my taste, it’s broderie, but it’s a simple shape, and I’m into this sheer leg trend that is happening (though it really doesn’t feel like something I’d wear in the city–definitely resort centric to me). It reminds me of this image of influencer Marie Von Behrens, when she was in Rome last summer. (That will be me eating pasta! And looking nothing like that.)
And how good are these sandals? I’m glad people are getting on board with kitten heels, it’s the only way to go. Also, I love a white shoe in the summer.
I am into the idea of wearing bold silver jewelry with these summer shades (which is a good thing, since I’m designing it!), but in all seriousness, it feels fresh to me. I will pack the at least the XL and Large Mariner Link Necklaces and Bracelet. (There will be gold too, but these feel like easy summer travel options.)
Matteau also launched new colors and designs on their site. This black off-shoulder dress is appealing–again feminine, but not overly.
This Maria McManus Ladder Crochet Dress would be an evening stunner for holiday. There is a lot of crochet out there, many designs I like in theory, but not reality–this one is an exception.
And this blue striped caftan….not sure I would wear it, but I do love it. It also comes in white-on-white, which might be more up my alley. Now if I could just edit down what I love!
