Summer Picks Part III: The Perfect Summer Ensemble

When I think of summer I always imagine that perfect white ensemble that just looks fresh and crisp. This summer outfit combines a classic simple style with a bit of funk on the side.

On Jenna I paired Classiques Entier ‘Dorena Twill’ crop cuffed pants in Cream Turtle Dove (pretty much an off-white) with the Parker Silk Corset Top in white (   The white top is a strapless peplum, which creates a beautiful, elegant silhouette for any figure. 

A Peplum flair detail on a garment helps to create a waist or can help hide certain areas that we aren’t the happiest with. 

To spice up the all white look I added the Micha Design Hawk Pendant & Feather Necklace. This adds a bold and edgy element to the clean look (

For the bracelet I put a Kate Spade New York ‘Idiom’ hinged Changing Spots in white/gold on her wrist for a delicate touch (

As the final touch, I paired the amazing Vivolo platform sandals from Aldo with the outfit (  The shoes are nude but have a funky flair with the orange, black and white layered platform. They are very high but super comfortable and can be paired with a cute summer dress as well. They are also great for an evening out during the summer or great for a cute day time look. As you all know by now I am a true believer in adding pieces to your wardrobe that can be versatile and used so that when you get them you are making a wise investment. 

This great outfit can be worn to a summer BBQ.  Granted, this is only if you are not clumsy, like me, and when you wear white it doesn’t take on magical powers that attract all stains around you to your clothes! This is also a great look for a summer yacht party (I thought everyone went to those in the summer!), a movie date with that special guy or drinks and shenanigans out with the ladies. 

You can dress up the outfit a bit more by adding a fitted pencil skirt to the ensemble. Or dress it down by pairing it with high waisted jean shorts.

If you are not a chunky necklace kind of person add a skinny belt to the waist of the top in black or choose any color or pattern under the sun to add a little funk to it.  

Enjoy & Be Beautiful!
