Summer Knit Sweaters: Haute Happy Hour Style

Happy unofficial start to summer! I'm in Newport for this glorious Memorial Day Weekend, taking a break from the Florida heat to soak up the crisp sea air, bask in the cliff side sun, and enjoy cozy fireside evenings with friends. Packing for a this little weekend getaway, the one item of clothing I couldn't travel without is a chunky summer sweater. Summer knits are a classic wardrobe essential this time of year- I'm always wearing them on early morning coffee runs in town, and on breezy afternoon beach walks, and have even begun to style the comfy boyfriend-inspired knits for an evening out! I'm loving all the affordable options available this year (shop all my Affordable Editorial Favorites bellow) a welcome change from the once only pricey chunky knits. You can now find summer knit sweaters that are well made and well priced. This season try knits embroidered with wonderful nautical motifs that really make your sweater stand out and look stylish, rather than shabby. And what better statement to make when meeting friends for happy hour or going on first date drinks than sporting a slouchy sweater with a slinky skirt or skinny jeans, and heels. It is just screams supreme style and classic confidence, and without sacrificing comfort or warmth, you come out a total winner by making your wardrobe work it and work for you. 

So cheers to stylish summer sweater Saturdays, and a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.

Sundays in the Sand: Summer Statements

It's definitely feeling like summertime today all up and down the east coast and what better way to celebrate than with a long walk on the beach and some sun-filled cocktails. Today I'm also dressing the part with a simple distressed denim canadian tuxedo, ice blue aviators, and one of my favorite Mignonne Gavigan statement neckpieces. Back to savoring this glorious Sunday, but hop you all are enjoying every second of this fabulous weekend.

Summer's Golden Hour with American Eagle Outfitters

Happy Friday loves! The weekend has finally arrived and so I had to share with you my summertime weekend uniform this season from American Eagle Outfitters. It's been gorgeously golden this week here in Palm Beach- long warm evenings enjoyed swimming or walking the dogs on the beach, and bright light-soaked mornings which I've spent tending to my growing garden of herbs, lavender and succulents. As spring turns into summer here in Florida I have found myself living in this AEO Henley T (which I have in all 3 colors, and 2 others in it's short sleeve version). Paired with AEO's  crocheted destroyed denim shorts it is literally all I need day and day out to look and feel great. A pair of boots, sun kissed skin and hair, and a statement necklace is all I need to take this classic comfy and crisp outfit from outdoors to out on the town. 

And the best part? My uniform is on massive SALE! Not only can you find this top AND these shorts for more than 40% off online, but if you snag the shorts you're instantly eligible for a second pair of shorts at 50% off PLUS free shipping on your entire order!

It's like Christmas in May over at ae.com, so don't miss out on this pre-summer Affordable Editorial holiday! Because your summer getaway is just moments away and why not travel, tan, and toast in true Affordable Editorial style...

Necklace: Mignonne Gavigan

The Perfect Spring Dress: Navy Nautical and No-Fuss from J. McLaughlin

That perfect spring dress is the dress you reach for the most in your closet, and the one you can easily accessorize in a pinch, know will look great no matter how crummy you feel, and is sure to look appropriate in any setting. It's a classic staple that can go from a casual weekend day on the water to an early summer business lunch, and then onto sunset filled drinks on a city side walk or sea side porch.

So when it comes to finding that go-to dress for THIS spring, I really want you to check out the Sun City Dress from J.McLaughlin. This dress is the perfect spring-summer weight, comes in a classic trio of colors (navy, white, and khaki) and has enough structure to hold up after multiple wearings, washings, and still flatter a wide range of figures. I'm amazed at how many times I have thrown on this dress in the past month of owning it. I love putting it on early on a warm morning knowing that I won't sweat through it's breathable fabric and thoughtful cut. And I can be confident that it will still look pressed and fresh by the time I want to grab a post-work day happy hour drink with girlfriends. Given that it's the ultimate busy day, busy girl dress, means it's also perfect for packing and a great travel dress as it just cannot seem to wrinkle! I love accessorizing it with classic creams and whites, gold jewelry, and red nails around this time of year, and I know it will be my uniform for Memorial Day weekend... I just may have to snag another in white to celebrate the unofficial start to summer!

When styling this spring silhouette, you can experiment with patterned scarves, belts, and blazers. I have taken off it's fabric belt, seen above, and swapped it for one of J McLaughlin's toggle rope belts multiple times to jazz up the look, making the dress look completely different. It looks great when paired with strappy heeled sandals, gold flats, and cork wedges. Even tan gladiator sandals with the JMCL Wanderlust belt would give this dress an upscale festival-fashion California chic feel. Add a great hat and a killer bag (like the fab Weekender Large Sailcloth Duffle from J. McLaughlin you see above) and you're ready for anything spring and summer could possibly throw at you.

So what's your go-to spring piece?
