Get Your Closet Summer Ready!

Lord & Taylor White Eyelet Bow Dress | Rachel Roy -

Summer in Bows

It’s officially HOT here in Florida… like wear-your-sunscreen-every-day and get-seat-buckle-burns, hot which means it’s time to dust off those sundresses and sandals! I usually dread the heat but after a solid few weeks of rain, our first heat wave was more than welcome. So of course, as soon as the rain subsided Ryan and decided to have a little fun in the sun and hit the Boardwalk!  


During the Summer months I practically live in dresses, they are truly the easiest and coolest thing to wear in 95+ degree heat. So it’s around this time of year that I start looking for dresses to add to my collection that may fit my Summer requirements of easy to wear, flattering, and cool. And as soon as I saw this pretty little eyelet dress from Lord & Taylor I thought check, check, check!!

I fell in love with the sweet bow details and pretty little buttons.  It would be the perfect dress to take from day to night. But of course, I couldn’t stop there! ­čśë

I’d been looking for a fun bamboo bag for sometime now, one that was a little different than the ones I’d been seeing pop up all over. So clearly I was THRILLED to spot this one for under $100 and scooped it up along with the cutest and quirkiest Kate Spade scarf that I’ll wear all Summer long.

If you are like me and are officially ready to Summer-up your closet, you’ll have to check out Lord & Taylor’s big Charity Days Sale. It’s going on right now and a percentage of sales to the USO, a non-profit that provides services to US military and their families.

We are talking 25% off $200 or more, 20% off up to $199.99, and 10% off fragrance.

Which brings me to another thing  that us Floridians never leave home without (well, two if you count deodorant, ha!). 

A bottle of fresh and sweet perfume! It’s always a good idea to tuck a bottle in your handbag to freshen up throughout the day. But if you are like me don’t have the nose for fussy scents it can be frustrating looking for the perfect not-trying-too-hard scent. But Calvin Klein’s “Air” it’s actually really amazing and it’s under $60! I’d highly recommend, plus the bottle is sleek enough for spritzing on the go!

Make sure you pop on over to Lord & Taylor and check the Charity Days Sale… It’s the perfect time to scoop up a few of those Summer pieces you’ve been eyeing!

    That dress and bag are so fun! But I totally agree with you, I’m totally a dress girl over shorts girl in the summer. They’re so much cooler and easier!

    Hi Ashley,

    You look beautiful in this summer outfit – how does sizing run on this dress? Do you mind sharing what size you got?
