floral maxi.

is it just me, or does it feel like summer just flies by!
and since you can't wear certain summer pieces (eh hem maxi dresses) year round in new york city, i try to find some cheap chic options to change it up in these hot months. enter my (not so) secret weapon, forever 21! i have scored a couple great summer dresses from them this year including this fun floral maxi.

longline and culottes.

1. i had to get on the culotte bandwagon, and i am feeling them in classic black.
2. i love vests, and this one is no exception. forever 21 hooked it up!
3. a bucket bag is a must, and this one is perfect.

heels: joie - scored these at last year's nordstrom's anniversary sale and they are back this year in blue!
other options i love: steve madden or vince (also #nsale!)

sleeveless blazer.

my favorite 3rd piece: vests! (in this look, it's really just the second piece) ;) but it is always a great add-on for separates, too. i have already picked up a few this summer and they are the perfect transition piece into fall! plus, this one is from forever 21 (and only $30!), but you would never know! it looks and feels great!
