Banjanan dress, Anya Hindmarch bag, Soludos espadrilles.

I've developed a bit of a summer uniform this year - maybe it's because of RTR Unlimited or because this season has been so busy. But pretty much every day, I'm wearing a dress with fun earrings & sandals or espadrilles. Here are a few versions of my summer uniform that I would wear right now:

lemon orchard dress, $148
how perfect is that print?


silk hoop earrings, $148
other colors available.


striped lace-up espadrilles, $50
on my second pair of these; originally $65.


knit midi dress, $98
I have almost this exact dress in black and wear it all the time, so I might need to pick up this green one. other colors available.


linen shirtdress, $148
also available in pink.


monochrome espadrilles, $130
other colors available.


floral-print wrap dress, $250
love that print & there's a skirt version here.


stone drop earrings, $168
other colors available.

In summertime, I spend most days running around in espadrilles. I'm on my second pair of these striped ones, and with the trend of midi-length dresses my espadrille wedges are getting more wear than ever. Below, I've gathered the best of the espadrilles available online right now - these are my personal favorites.

Edit: & Other Stories

I shop at many different places online - you can see them all at the bottom of my Shop page - but & Other Stories has so many good pieces lately, I had to give them an edit of their own. The brand is an H&M company, though certainly a few levels up in quality and design. I love the tie-front top ($55) above, and so much more!

double-breasted linen-blend blazer, $149
my favorite thing in this post - it's in my cart! 


sleeveless frill dress, $65
the kind of dress that works for almost anything on your schedule.
other prints available.


printed dress, $85
also available in a dark floral print.


striped cap, $29
if I were ever going to wear a baseball cap, it would probably be this one.


floral midi skirt, $65
also available in red.


leather toe espadrilles, $95
also available in pink and black.
