Holiday Chic

Stumped for what to wear for summer's last hurrah? The recipe is simple. First, you'll need your most favored maxi dress. I like mine long and lean like Haute Hippie's sunset-orange striped Maxi. This one has amazing drape and hugs the body without ever seeming too clingly. Perfection.

Next, don a pair of glimmery, shimmery thong sandals like Musa's Swarovski embellished ones. I like mine with coordinating glossy coral pedicure. OPI has just the color, I can assure you.

And now for the fun things... the main accessories. For me, sunnies are what it's all about. And while I'm partial to my featherweight Tom Fords, I am also crushing on these oversized Linda Farrow Luxe Square-frames. Super fabulous and commanding attention.

Next, slip on a "wow-worthy" bit of gold by way of YSL's "Arty" gold bracelet with it's super-neutral cream glass stone. See... now it's all coming together, right? But what about a bag? You'll need something roomy but simple. I like Salvatore Ferragamo's "Bice" tote in tan (trust me on this one). Fabulous in a very understated way.

And finally... finish the look off with stunning orange- enamel earrings from Isharya. They dangle from the lobes "just so" offering the necessary pop of color while also being so impossibly lightweight. This, friends, is the ultimate carefree summer outfit that will take you from poolside to cocktails without a single costume change.

Add the summer 'do of choice: the maxi bun. Soften skin with Omorovicza Gold Glimmer Oil and you are all set for a carefree day of summer fun. Now go forth and celebrate the last day of summer!
