Stripes are hot this summer and there are lots of ways to wear them. Above and below some examples and you can find product suggestions at the end of this post. I LOVE this rainbow striped off the shoulder dress from Mara Hoffman (image above). There are also some other pieces by Mara Hoffman made from the same striped fabric: this midi dress, a cute mini dress (also available here) and a cropped striped pant.
Today’s summer wardrobe is inspired by Marrakech in Morocco. I visited this magical city a few years ago and loved it!

I love summer for many reasons, one of them is that it is warm enough to wear dresses! I just love a pretty dress. Here are some of my favorite dresses of this season. Above: maxi dress in strawberry cream

I love the pretty pink and blue colors used in this beautiful holiday home on the Spanish island of Formentera (you can see this home here). It inspired me to do this pink & blue post! Above: Lovebird Half Moon gown by Spell.

More beautiful pink: these rounded toe suede high heel shoes in stunning pink color, this pink sapphire necklace and these vibrant suede wedge espradrilles.
My go-to shop for basic items is Everlane as I love their basic elegant and casual fashion. Their style is a cross between Scandinavian simplicity and French chic. The quality of their clothing is good (they work with the best factories around the world) yet their designs are affordable (as they do not work with resellers). My Everlane favorites that I own are the cotton U neck tee (very soft), the City Anorak (simple but very stylish) and the Stretch Ponte Skinny pants (the perfect black skinny pants). On my wishlist is this beautiful off-white sweater. Everlane only ships within the US and to Canada and Australia but I use a forwarding shipping service (Shipito).
