I’m all about this summery navy tunic with a pop of color! The intricate embroidery really makes a fun statement. It’s a great dress for grabbing dinner on a hot summer evening. It comes with a guilt-free price tag too- $65.

I wish I had plans to travel somewhere fabulous, because this gorgeous dress just screams getaway glam. Regardless of where I’m wearing it, this maxi just became my new bestie. It’s my secret for looking polished on a scorching summer day. The pom-pom trim, embroidery and cinched waist all work together so nicely. This maxi is currently on sale for $54. The same style also comes in an adorable top. It would look so cute with a pair of distressed denim shorts if you're feeling casual.

When I read Emily Schuman, the creator of cupcakes and cashmere, was launching a clothing line, I knew it would be amazing.  I’ve been reading Emily’s site since I was in high school and have always loved her edgy, feminine and classic aesthetic. As I was checking out the collection online, I was instantly drawn to this striped number. I’m the first to admit I hoard striped pieces, but this dress clearly stands out from the sea of stripes in my closet. The slanted stripes put a fresh spin on a classic style. This dress can easily be dressed up or down and it’s seasonless. Won’t it look great with a leather jacket and ankle booties in the fall? Shop more of my favorite pieces from cupcake and cashmere’s new line below.
