how to do summer the edgy way

i love the summer months. i have so much fun wearing bright colors, tropical prints, and shooting in exotic locations. but i’m a new yorker through and through, and by august, i’m itching for my edge back. this outfit is my tiny, little rebellion. 

my dress is from h&m’s luxe collection – so it’s pricier than normal h&m pieces, but for the quality (silk blend!) it’s worth every penny. if i were in full blown summer mode, i would pair this look with nude accessories… but to punch up the edginess, i opted for black pearl-accented slides, a neon clutch, and a loud lip.

i love this dress because it’s transitional. you could even wear this into the fall with a black leather jacket & booties or a long black cardigan with ballet flats.

i shot this look inside the hotel le sireneuse in positano, which is insanely stunning. it provided the perfect backdrop for such an eclectic look. what’s your favorite transitional piece? do you have a summer favorite that you think will carry over to fall? we’re right around the corner! follow along on instagram as i begin to (slowly) welcome fall ’17!
