Soft Joie dress (c/o shopbop), J.Crew chambray blouse, Modcloth pendant (c/o), H&M cuff & ring

Summer to me in New York has been all about easy pairings, comfortable dresses you can throw on and mixing up certain outfits to develop a different look. Remember when I posted about how to style a Chambray blouse three ways? Well here’s a fourth to work into the mix…knot it and tie it up over a dress. It was actually inspired by my friend and colleague Kendall (who also happens to be one of the most effortlessly chic dressers I know).

I love this Soft Joie dress for being so cozy, yet interesting with its ruched bottom. Still availble here. (And lots more of my love for Joie here.)

What are your go-to, lazy easy pieces for this summer?

    Love this outfit so much! Especially the tied shirt. I like this trend but somehow when I do it, I feel very 90s. However, I need to get that out of my mind and keep on trying because you obviously pulled it off perfectly!


  2. I just bought a chambray top at J. Crew this weekend… can’t wait to style it over a dress like you did! I wouldn’t have thought to wear it like that.
