Last year I lived in black and white graphic prints. It made getting ready so easy. You can’t go wrong when everything in your wardrobe is black, white or gray. This summer, however,  I’m experimenting with color. Lots of it!

On a recent trip to Zara I found several bright and colorful pieces on sale. This dress is a new favorite. Royal blue is eye-catching and the pop of red is so much fun. One thing that hasn’t changed is my need for versatility, and this dress wins. Here, I wore it with black booties, but after the shoot I changed into sneakers and it was just as chic. Also, I find that the pleats and red straps give this tent dress the perfect touch of flair.

Cheers to adding a little more glam back into my wardrobe for the summer! See below for a few more pics and a quick list to shop this look!
