Wicker bags, always! I’m thrilled to partner with J.McLaughlin in celebration of National Wicker Day! These timeless, statement-making bags have long been favorites of mine to wear all year round, but particularly in the summer. Today I am styling several of my favorite wicker bags from J.McLaughlin including the Hera Crossbody Bag, the Robyn Box Bag, and the Olivia Stripe Clutch. In honor of this special day, J.McLaughlin also has a cute and informative “History of the Wicker Bag” post up on their site. From the food carriers in ancient Egypt, to the hostesses of Victorian picnic lunches, and as signature statement pieces of the effortlessly cool French women of the 60’s and 70’s, wicker bags have certainly come a very long way! You can check out the full post here.
Summer is the perfect time to pull out all of the prints, and of course, according to me, MORE IS MORE! I love mixing and matching and even wearing head-to-toe matching prints. Whether you are looking for something casual or a little more glam, I am rounding up a few new summer prints picks below…

Nothing signals summer quite like a long, flowy maxi dress! I am back in NYC and so excited to be rediscovering this magical city after being away for so long. My days have been hectic and long and dresses like this are the perfect day-to-night piece. I have been packing my schedule, leaving little time to change. and a maxi dress and flats are the perfect chic-yet-comfortable combo that I need. From the vibrant print, to the lightweight organza material, to the very generous sweep, this dress has to be one of my favorite summer purchases. You can shop it here, and I am also highlighting a few more summer maxi dress loves from Saks below – such as this pretty tiered and tied number and this classic shirtdress style.
