I’m dreaming of a Brooklyn summer with my current style crush, Au Revoir Simone. Their smart and whimsical style matches their dreamy sound. So I’m pairing sweet day dresses from my favorite indie designers, like Duskin, with floral vintage finds, and a long messy mane. I just need a keyboard, some wind chimes, and a Park Slope brownstone. Click below to shop our ARS inspired pieces.

It’s 93 degrees outside. I am wearing as little clothing as possible to still be appropriate for work. Iced lattes and Pink Berry have become my sustenance. And somehow we are gearing up for shipments of wool blazers, furry layers and luxe knits. So, we need to make room! Lucky for you, there are still 3 very long months of hot, sticky summer weather ahead. So if you’ve been waiting to shop for the CURRENT season – get on it! Our sale is AHmazing.
Lately, my daily dressing routine goes something like this: (1) Check the weather. Hot and sticky. Again. ( 2) Contemplate shaking it up for about 5 seconds. Then decide it’s too hot. Resort to my go-to piece – Rag & Bone Tuxedo Shirt Dress. (4) Decide if it’s going to be a shirt or a dress. (4) Accessorize accordingly. It all falls into place after that.
And somehow, I continue to keep it fresh and interesting. I tuck it into cuffed shorts or a pencil skirt, I wear it loose over leggings or alone as a airy boyfriend shirt dress with simple flats or espadrilles. I let a lacy coral camisole poke out from underneath. It was even my beach cover up one weekend. Come fall, I will roll the sleeves down and experiment with all sorts of layering. And did I mention it has pockets? Yeah, it’s awesome.
We can’t keep Liya Kibede’s chic and effortless caftans in stock. Deep breath – more are on the way! In the meantime, watch the supermodel/philanthropist/designer below on Style.com.
