RESORT DAYTIME CASUAL
When you think of Florida – you probably think “vacation” and this look is inspired by exactly that! I love wearing maxi dresses during the day; they are an easy way to look instantly pulled together. This pinstriped, button down number from Threads is a nod to the preppy, classic resort scene of Florida – but I added some personal flare by using a unique, vintage silk scarf as a waist belt. The bright, embellished clog-style Tory Burch mules and straw tassel tote from Bloomingdales are very on trend for summer, plus they add even more fun pops of color to the look. I think sunglasses are an integral part of any daytime look; and I’m always a fan of the cat eye shape. This white, mirrored pair by Quay accessorizes and tops off the vacation style perfectly!

LUXE NIGHT OUT
This is a super chic outfit that I would wear for a night out on the town or a special event. I’m always creating seemingly lux looks by mixing high + low pieces, and this is a perfect example of that! The classic “little black dress” [with a ruffle twist] from H&M creates a beautiful, feminine silhouette - which I accentuated with an oversized, pearl-embellished Gucci logo belt. The belt serves as the main statement piece for the outfit, so I kept the other accessories fairly simple. The handbag, also Gucci, features coordinating pearl accents and quilted black leather; while the sandals add a nice, simple pop of white to keep things on season. For the finishing touch – I styled my hair in a low ponytail to show off the thin, gold, circle shape drop earrings that tie back to the pearl theme.

This is a look that I would wear if I needed to be able to transition my outfit into the night, if I was attending a dressy lunch or some other type of daytime event. Blazers are always in style, and I wanted to center my whole look around this oversized, floral print one from Zara! Since the print of the blazer is somewhat busy, I kept my other pieces simple – wearing solid, high-waist shorts and a cropped, keyhole top. The satin, pointed-toe pumps I chose are classic but still on trend with their mustard shade. I think they would be perfect for day OR night and could easily be worn with a skinny jean, pencil skirt or mini-dress! I love adding unique, statement earrings to my outfits and this Bauble Bar pair coordinated perfectly with the floral print of the blazer. Gucci aviator sunglasses in a neutral olive shade from Saks Off 5th complete the look.

When I’m styling my male clients, I always tell them to stick to one trendy piece and keep everything else fairly classic. Here, the distressed, white denim is that piece – they’re perfect for the summertime and can be combined with almost anything! I paired a cool, neutrally two-toned bomber jacket with a printed button up to create the perfect balance. When it comes to prints for men – I like to keep them small and not too over the top. For this casual look, a tan, linen slip on shoe was the perfect choice. As far as accessories, I kept it classic with some simple David Yurman jewelry and a tortoise pair of Persol sunglasses to tie everything together!
