So I’m on Day 3 during my participation here at the Southampton Arts Conference, out on the East End of Long Island, where I’m not only spreading the Style Darling word, but also meeting lots of great, friendly, brilliant, creative new people. Not to mention that I’m getting inspired by the summer-time attire, including gauzy white dresses, chic khaki crops, ballet flats, jeweled sandals, & plenty of printed skirts. I’ve been doing very well for myself on the style side, earning a reputation for being told “Heeey! Nice shoes!” This has triggered yet another edition of Super Style Wishlist, where I invite my readers to join me in drooling over some of the most fabulous flirty dresses, perfect for a day in The Hamptons!
I clicked through my favorite high-end retailer, Neiman Marcus, & found some adorable summer-ready dresses, perfect for wearing right now (although today is quite the rainy day). The price tag is quite a bit beyond my budget, but the styles & designers are always important to consider! For example, the Kate Spade New York Jane printed dress ($458.00) caught my attention immediately b/c I’m always drawn to bold black & white graphic prints. This is darling for a day of poetic musings with a neon patent leather belt & neutral wedges. Next, the M Missoni hexagon striped knit dress ($895.00) is a more vivid statement for the season & can be dressed down for day with ballet flats & layered beads.
Every summer girl needs a maxi dress & I’m loving the contrasting neutral tones in the Jay Godfrey bell v-neck maxi dress ($440.00), which immediately brings to mind some chunky platform sandals & hoop earrings. Lastly, the Theory short-sleeved shirt dress ($285.00) is a classic must-have with wedges & drop earrings, or sandals & a medium-sized tote. Happy Styling!
