Topshop Dress - The Nude Label Lingerie - Clare Vivier Loafers - And Other Stories Sandals - A.L.C. Dress

Warm days here in the San Francisco Area have got me thinking about warm weather fashion. Sandals and sporty loafers are a must, of course. Plus, I’m really loving the cutout details that are all over the virtual racks – rarely does showing skin come in such pretty, age-appropriate packages.

Check out what’s taking up space in my online shopping cart this week…

1. Topshop Sleeveless Cutout Midi Dress, $55.00
I’m surprised how taken I’ve become with the trend of adding tasteful cutouts to dresses. This trend works well for women of all ages and body types – the secret is to choose cutouts that highlight your best assets. This new Topshop dress has small cutouts at the natural waist, which is often the slimmest part of a woman’s body. Paired with the high neckline and midi length hem, these cutouts are alluring and far from tacky. I love this grass green color, but it’s also available a nude shade.

2. The Nude Label Sheer Bra, $53.00 & Paneled Brief, $42.00
This pretty, simple Spanish lingerie label is one of my new favorites. All of their pieces steer clear of padding, push-up, and frilly lace. Instead they focus on subtlety and revealing a woman’s true form. This bra and brief combo is striking both for the jeweled turquoise color and the beautiful use of sheer details.

3. Clare Vivier & Other Stories Leather Loafers, $120.00
These flats are just one of the fabulous items available as part of the just launched Clare Vivier collab from European cult favorite label & Other Stories. The versatile, yet incredibly on-trend, perforated design and leather construction make this shoe a huge steal for spring.

4. & Other Stories Block Heel Sandals, $135.00
I couldn’t resist featuring a second find from the & Other Stories shoe department. These sporty sandals will add an of-the-moment edge to any spring look, and I think they’d look especially smart with the green Topshop dress also featured here.

5. A.L.C. Brook Open-Side Jersey Maxi Dress, $141.99 (was $375.00)
This sale-priced A.L.C. dress presents another cutout option. This dress has open sides that show off the side and waist, while the drapey fit and t-shirt like construction creates a look that is perfect for warm summer days. It would make an ideal cover-up for vacation – you could go from poolside to lunch in a flash!
