Tory Burch Veronica Dress

I rarely find myself coveting Tory Burch apparel, but this chain print dress is the exception. I feel like I could buy this today and wear it in ten years and still love it! The colors are great and I like the smocked waistline.

Ya-Ya Splatter Tank

This blousy grey tank at Bluefly is very cool. I prefer blousy fitting tanks and I love the splattered colors too.

Loeffler Randall One Shoudler Dress

I wish I could afford this dress. So here's another one of my fantasy posts where money isn't part of the equation. I am a huge fan of asymmetrical anything and this dress is no exception. Plus its yellow with fluttering sleeve and the length is perfect.

BR Silk Woven Dress

I am seriously considering getting this dress as an early birthday present for myself. Although I was hoping to hit the outlets near my home to do a little bday shopping. But this dress is proving hard to resist. I love the color, the woven detail, and the cinched waist. If the vermillion color is too much for you, they carry it in black too.

Asos Star Print Chiffon Blouse

Here's another keeper at Asos. The star print chiffon blouse is adorable. I love the juxtaposition of the conservative neck tie with the fun star print.

Asos Tape Yarn Twist Strap Vest

I really like this twisted straps on this sweater at Asos and I am a big fan the wider band along the bottom. Perfect to wear solo or layer.

Ella Moss Carlie Dress

Here's an easy breezy dress option that's on sale at ShopBop for $124.60 and they still have a good range of sizes (xs, m, and l). I am a big fan of the beading and ruching, but decide for yourself.

Mint Fading Ruffle Tank

The draping on this Mint Fading Ruffle Tank is perfect. I really adore the ruffle detail on the back, which is why I included the back view in lieu of the front (sorry). They only have small and mediums left, but those sizes are on sale for $192.50. Granted that's not a drop in the hat, but its not your ordinary tank top. For an extra 15% off, be sure to use this code at checkout (24HOUR).

Smocked Colorblock Dress

I love strapless sundresses. They have a carefree vibe about them that I love. But I, unfortunately, have to be very selective when it comes to strapless looks. Unless they are sweetheart necklines they are a disaster on me. And in spite of this tidbit I have ignored my instincts and tried them only to be terribly disappointed. So, this fantastic smocked colorblock dress is for you ladies who can do the strapless look. I will admire you from the sidelines on this one.

DVF Kiamo Wrap Dress

Diane von Furstenberg has become synonymous with timeless feminine styles and this cobalt and gray Kiamo wrap dress is no exception in my mind. I adore the color combination and the cap sleeves. Its the perfect length for flat sandals on your personal time or heels for work.

Michael Kors Debutante Wedges

I am a big Michael Kors fan (speaking of which have you heard all of the Project Runway drama? I hope when the show makes the jump to Lifetime its still great) and these wedges are delightful. There have been tons of uber creative heels and wedges this season, but the cut outs on this pair are just dramatic enough for my taste. The green is perfect to add a punch of color to black and blue ensembles and you can totally rock these with your florals too. LOVE THEM!

Sweet Robin Yalena Dress

This Yalena Dress is the perfect dress for cocktails. Its elegant and colorful. Not only is it on sale at Shop Bop for $97.80 (regularly $326), but you can use the Style Stimulus code for an extra 25% off (EXTRA25). What a steal!

Michael Kors Babydoll Dress

As much as I love the babydoll dress look, I know its on its way out. So spending $119.50 on a Michael Kors knit dress isn't the greatest idea, but this one is adorable and colorful. Perfect for the summer.

Rich & Skinny Sleek Straight Leg Jeans

Here's another summer standard, white jeans (although I will argue that you can wear them outside the summer, but I have some friends' whose opinions I greatly respect who will disagree). They look fantastic on this model, but hopefully they also work for gals who aren't leggy and slender, although the inseam is only 33.5, which is a little shy of what I typically look for in my jeans. Get your Rich & Skinny on for $156.

Calvin Klein Smocked Camisole

One of my go-to outfits during the summer (when I am not at work) is jeans, sandals, and a camisole. Its not mind-blowing, but it normally works for me and doesn't result in me throwing myself on my bed screaming "I hate my clothes!" (Am I the only one this happens to? When I can't find something to wear I either blame my closet or my weight, which is so NOT productive.) Anyhow, this Calvin Klein camisole is delightful. I prefer the peridot option (shown), but they offer it in an evening haze color as well (blueish).

Tropical Patio Dress

I really like the look of these long dresses, but I really need to hit a few stores and try a couple of different styles on because although they always look so fresh and chic on others, I worry that would be a disaster on me. This version at Banana Republic looks like a keeper though. Tons of design considerations that are typically flattering like the sweetheart neckline and empire waist. And the skirt is pretty basic (no layers or ruffles), so it shouldn't add even more mass to a gal's silhouette.

Tibi Floral Skirt

Queen Bee has this lovely floral Tibi skirt on sale for $129.50 (regularly $248.60). I love the green, blue, and coral colors and it would be one of the most used pieces in my closet this summer, since you can just add a tee and roll.

T-Strap Mini Wedge Sandals

If you aren't the most graceful gal in towering wedges, these two inch T-strap wedge sandals at Rampage might appeal to you. They only come in the dark brown color shown and are currently going for $44.

Old Navy Halter

Old Navy has some pretty cute stuff on their site. And the best part is its so affordable. Here are a few of my favorites.

Linen Scarf - $14.50

Etienne Aigner Diana Wedge

The Diana wedge is adorable and comes in three colors (shark, yellow, and black) and is on sale at Piperlime right now for $49.50.

Steve Madden Palapa Wedges

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I am on the hunt for a shoe for a very particular dress and along the way I found these woven wedges at Steve Madden that I really like (and might work for my need), but they are a little pricey at $129.95 for such specific purpose.

Steve Madden Pascha Shoes

These multi-colored (brown and purple) t-strap sandals are sensational and on sale ($71.50).

Lux Cut Out Mini Skirt

This white cotton skirt at Urban Outfitters is adorable and on sale ($39.99). I really like the scalloped bottom. Its the perfect summer basic to pair with tanks and tees.
