Summer Dresses: For Day and Night

Whether it’s a luncheon, polo event, the races, a cocktail party, a special dinner or any other reason to get dressed up this summer finding a dress that works Day and Night for all of these occasions is essential.

For me, this Jonathan Saunders dress from his past Fall collection does just the trick!  The busy yet elegant detailing adds that perfect amount of quirkiness and sass, but still leaving a sense of demure. Jonathan is one of my favorite British designers whose style seems to always satisfy my zesty personality on any occasion.

I love having dresses like this, that are really versatile for summer soirees, with a stylish and fun element especially because sometimes you just don’t know where the night may take you so make sure you are well dressed.

Note: This off-white colored, boyfriend style Antonio Berardi blazer gets tons of use in the summer, as it goes with practically everything.  Because of its longer length, I honestly wear it with so many of my dresses in the warmer months, walking out the door thrown over my shoulders, knowing that I have it for when it gets colder in the evening.  T by Alexander Wang has an ecru blazer on sale now and Haute Hippie makes a great simple one for a great price.

This new collection Jonathan Saunders floaty silk chiffon dress is a dream summer dress. The lavender wisteria print against the gorgeous red mixed with its romantic cut make this dress at the top of my list for versatility in wear to many events.
