Summer is full of RSVPs. What tips do you have for looking chic yet staying comfy throughout the night?

I would say have a pair of black ballet flats tucked into your purse, and bring a cardigan in case the night gets cold! I personally can’t stand on heels for more than a few hours, so flats are my best friends when going to an event!

What do you love about this dress?

I find this floral dress so delicate and feminine, and love that the adjustable neckline allows you to go as low as you feel comfortable with and ties so beautifully at the back. And the ruffles are flattering on everyone and add the perfect touch of playfulness!

When you get a last minute invite to a party, what’s your go-to outfit?

The easiest would be a little black dress with heels, but chances are you won’t be the only one dressed like that! So I would say a floral or bright dress with sandals, or trousers with a fun top and some coloured heels.

Are you as obsessed with rompers and jumpsuits as much as we are?

Yes, 100%! I find myself constantly shopping for new jumpsuits and rompers, I love that they are so easy to wear and your entire outfit is basically done in one step. I know dresses are the same, but there is something so sophisticated and empowering about a nice, fitted jumpsuit!


What piece of clothing has endless styling possibilities for you?

Definitely a nice pair of high waisted skinny jeans. Style them with a button-down top for a more classic look, or with a white tee and a neck scarf for a weekend vibe. And every pair of shoes looks great with jeans!

Rapid Questions:

1) Celebrity style icon? Kate Middleton or style blogger Lydia E. Millen

2) Favourite trend this summer? Oh, there are too many! Jumpsuits, skinny scarves styled in unexpected ways, statement earrings, etc.

3) Summer bucket list? I just want to sit by a pool with a piña colada and do absolutely nothing for a day!

4) Words to live by? There’s a French quote that says, “Qui ne tente rien, n’a rien,” meaning he or she who does not try, does not get. I’ve been telling myself this since I was 13 years old!
