J. Crew Cotton Piqué Lace Dress | Kate Spade Marguerite Lilac Road Bag | J. Crew Factory Crystal Flower Burst Necklace | Banana Republic Sabrine Wedges | J. Crew Crystal Shoe Clips

It’s not summer until you can break out the lace dress from your wardrobe! Lace and summer are one of those things that just go hand in hand. The delicate material, the intricate pattern, all in one gorgeous flowing dress—perfect for outdoor barbecues or impromptu soirée.

I styled my lace dress for a more casual summer afternoon, great for a stroll through the neighborhood or coffee date. I love how this dress does not particularly have lace everywhere, but rather just as a detailed lining. This way, the lace pattern does not overpower the entire look.

To add a pop of color, I styled the dress with a bright poppy statement necklace. I kept the other accessories neutral so as to not take away the attention from the dress and necklace. Hope you guys enjoyed my summer series on the essential pieces and prints I will be wearing this summer!

Happy styling fashionistas!

Summer Lookbook: The Eyelet Skirt

Anthropologie Scallop Blue Cami | Banana Republic Eyelet Skirt (Similar) J. Crew Sunburst Earrings | Aldo Galelawen

Two of the trends I love most this summer are scallop details and eyelet prints. These trends just have an automatic summer feeling and I loved pairing the two of them together in one look.

Since this eyelet skirt is more form fitting, I wanted to balance the look out with a flowy top. The bright baby blue is a much needed pop of color, especially with such a delicate white skirt. The silver metallic tones in the statement earrings and shoes are very eye-catching and give the outfit a polished finish.

To me, summer wear is all about being comfortable and keeping cool in the hot weather—and this outfit encompasses that. An alternative way to style this could be a pair of silver metallic sandals, should the occasion call for a more casual look. I would probably wear this particular outfit out on a nice lunch date with my girlfriends, or to a movie date with the boyfriend!

J. Crew Cove Floral Top | Tobi Scuba Skirt (Similar) | Kate Spade Cobble Hill Wallet | J. Crew Factory Earrings | Kate Spade Pave Scallop Bangle | J. Crew Flower Cuff | C. Wonder Colorblock Heels (Similar)

Floral is always a good idea when it’s spring or summer. It’s definitely something that I can’t resist—especially when I see all the bright and beautiful flowers everywhere. This is by far one of my favorite floral prints for the summer. I love the overall navy background of the top, which highlights the pastel and neon floral patterns.

When wearing a very busy or statement top, I like to keep the bottoms more streamlined and simple. I usually like to choose one color from the top to feature on the bottoms. Here, I’ve chosen pastel pink color in the floral top and extended it to a light pink flare skirt. Choosing one color to highlight will help pull the overall look together.

Because I wanted all the attention to be focused on the gorgeous floral pattern, I made sure that my shoes and accessories were very simple. Here, I have finished the look with a pair of black and brown color block heels, some dainty bracelets and a gold wallet. The neutral tones of the accessories compliment the statement floral print.

I hope this helps all of you while styling your own floral tops for the summer!
