This summer, I am all about the LWD — otherwise known as the Little White Dress.

I dreamed about this silhouette from Aritzia (as I do most things) when I spotted it on the racks when it was still freezing in NYC. I decided to purchase and stay optimistic thinking one day summer may indeed come and I can rock this dress with open toe shoes and bare legs.

Finally – summer arrived and it’s insanely hot in NYC. The instant fix? This easy breezy dress that I can take from day to night.

I wanted to show you fellow Fashionistas the versatility of this dress by simple switching up your accessory game.

For a casual day look – I love this paired with a flat cognac sandal, turquoise jewelry and my new favorite tassel earrings. For the summer heat, I love the hairstyle that has been trending over your Instagram feed: the half bun.

This look is perfect for the office, brunch out with the girls, or a fun day date.

For the evening it’s all about your shoes. To add some edge, I paired this dress with my statement heels from Zara. The red gives that extra pop you need that elevates the look into night.

I literally “let my hair down” and embraced my natural waves to switch up my look. It’s important to embrace your natural texture in this season because no matter how much you may try to fight it — the humidity will win.

If you want to add more shape, this dress comes with an adorable rope belt you can tie for a more fitted look. However, I love this dress loose. It has so much movement, and the hem comes up just a bit on the sides to show-off a bit of leg which never hurt anyone.

Are you ready to rock this look day to night? (Cue Kid Cudi.)

MANE ADDICTS – GNO

HAIR TO WEAR WHERE: GIRL’S NIGHT OUT

04 . 22 . 15

It’s finally getting warmer and those long months of hibernating and staying in on Friday nights with Netflix is becoming a thing of the past!

Test out these fun manespiration ideas for your next girl’s night out. We love taking more risks when we’re hanging with our best girls. Whether it’s asking that hottie at the bar for his number or experimenting with a sky high ponytail — this is your time to try something new.

 THE SKY HIGH PONY

Dance the night away without worrying about your hair falling flat! We love a girly ponytail for a night out on the town. Add some tease to the crown and pump up the volume with this flirty style. Must have: hair bungees.

THE SLICKED BACK 

Wet hair? Don’t care. This bold style is the perfect look to add some edge and paired with a smokey eye…you’ll be turning heads left and right. We suggest using Oribe Original Pomade for a shiny finish and hold.

THE HALF BUN

Your favorite half-up style from the 90’s got updated. Take the top knot to a whole new level with this half-up style. We love adding some waves to this look for that cool-girl texture. Must have: Oribe Wave and Shine Spray.
