London Summer: Easy Breezy Dress

A sunny day in London is not something we take for granted. We had some much-needed sunshine this past week, so we took the opportunity to be outdoors and enjoy it. The girls played tennis to their hearts content and I enjoyed cheering them on from the sidelines.

This easy chambray dress was perfect for the day. I love the balance of comfort and chic. I’ve found some similar styles herehere  and here.

If you are on the hunt for summer sandals, Ancient Greek has an amazing collection. I am wearing the Alethea Sandal (Greek for “truth”, fun fact), and I just love how comfortable and versatile these are. They are the perfect pairing to any summer outfit. You can browse more Ancient Greek options here.

Spotlight on: Pink Peonies

Can Rachel Parcell, of PinkPeonies.com, do anything wrong? This leading fashion and style blogger has her hand on the pulse of American middle-class lifestyle. Her classic and feminine outfits are effortless. Rachel has been able to successfully translate high-end fashion to easy, wearable outfits that the average middle-class woman can put together every morning. She focuses on a few key investment pieces, keeping the rest of the outfit simple and elegant.

In addition to her shrewd fashion sense, she has a very keen instinct for interior design. Her features on her closet/home-office and living space are absolutely inspirational. As if all this was not enough, she recently launched her very own jewelry line, the Pink Peonies Collection, and in true Rachel Parcell fashion, it is nothing short of flawless. What else can one say but… bow down!

The outfit below features a couple of my favorite pieces from her collection.
