It took a long while for summer to finally hit Boston this year so I’m a bit delayed on this — but the sun is finally shining in full force and I’m thriving in my summer style! I wanted to share some of my recent purchases + perennial favorites that feel chic but effortless in this grand season.
A few of my past investments that still shine as favorites include:
Most all of my “perennial favorites” are investment pieces I’ve collected over the years. I like to treat myself to one or two “special” pieces each season (case in point, this incredible top by one of my new favorite designers Ciao Lucia) then pad them with lower priced trendier pieces that feel more fleeting or experimental. That said, Mango has been a rock-solid go to for me these past couple of years for just that: affordable, fun pieces to sprinkle in some timelier trends to play with in my wardrobe.
That said, even with stores like these, I’m very selective, carefully looking at fabric content (I steer to the 100% cotton or 100% linen pieces, and have even tried some of the “sustainable” collective pieces that are made from recycled synthetics). I’ve been surprised by how long a few of these items have stuck around when carefully considered (some of the cotton poplin button downs have lasted me years!). The pieces I’ve shared here are the ones I just added to my own closet and happily recommend them. xx!
Don’t forget, I regularly add pieces that are catching my eye and landing on my own wishlist in my Style Shop.
