Ever since Michael & I visited France last summer it’s been real love. The vibes are perfection. Everything is bright & airy and the rosé is always flowing.

As you know, we’re back & France has definitely got me in the summer spirit. So let’s talk looks- whether you’re attending a festival or fancy night out this summer I’ve got you covered. Check out my summer lookbook inspired by my Instagram.

Looking for a hot date night outfit or going to a wedding? This dress is exactly what you need. It’s a deep crimson color and a beautiful satin material. It feels like butter on the skin and is super flattering in photographs. Finish the look with a thick choker & strappy heels.

Summer is FULL of travel. Whether it’s road trips, exotic beaches or a relaxing staycation it’s time to up your travel attire. Keep your look simple & clean by embracing a monochrome look. I’m loving nude lately and chose comfy clothes that travel well. Think joggers, mules and an oversized sweater. Also be sure to bring a large tote to carry your snacks, laptop, & a good book.

Whether you’re attending festivals this year or not, adding some festival flair is always a good idea. It’s playful & laid back. This year for my first time at Coachella I rocked this crochet top with a body chain, translucent yellow sunglasses, & a black maxi skirt. You could also wear this to a BBQ or the beach too.

This getup was so fun & fiery. I’m obsessed with the contrast of the lacy bra to the structured suit. It’s the perfect balance between masculine and feminine. Plus the bright red is a real eye catcher. I wore this for Michael’s birthday & it was a huge hit. Let’s just say he loved it.

New York City slays when it comes to style. There’s an edgy look & attitude that you won’t find anywhere else. Shawn created a sleek ponytail for me & we dressed it up with some velvet ribbon. How fun is that?! With a dress like this you need to make sure your hair is out of the way so the details can be seen. You can’t see the front but my boobs were glowing after using some sassy sheer oil.

Anyway, summer is a great time to experiment with your style & try something new. Which look are you most excited to rock? I think nudes are winning for me.

Ok, off to answer some e-mails with a side of rosé. My birthday is Sunday so we will be celebrating a lot this weekend. Hope you’re all relaxing!
