Summer Romance: Floral Maxi, Plum Cross-Body Bag, Platform Sandals and Tortoise Sunglasses

During what felt like an endless winter, I spent hours dreaming of warmer days, romantic summer getaways, and naturally, the outfits…oh, the outfits… 

I’ve had my heart set on an Italian adventure for some time, so when I spotted this gorgeous floral off-the-shoulder maxi from Flynn Skye a few months ago, I knew I had to start building my romantic, wine sipping, piazza strolling vacation wardrobe (albeit a little early…after all, I still have to get Bugsy on board with the vacation plans).

A few weeks ago, I told you all about my shoot for vegan handbag brand Angela Roi, so when the photographer and I decided on the New York Public Library as the backdrop for my second look, I wanted to go with something romantic and that gorgeous floral maxi (that I admittedly purchased a bit prematurely) was perfect for the occasion   With thoughts of Positano, I styled the most feminine look I could dream up by pairing the floral maxi with a wine colored cross-body bag from Angela Roi, deep wine lip and side swept waves I’ve always been a big fan of maxi dresses for their ability to make just about any girl look effortlessly elegant, but I am particularly enamored with this one for its ruffled off-the shoulder straps and high sexy slit.  For a little height, I opted for cognac colored platform sandals.  And finally for accessories, I wore oversized tortoise sunnies with gold hardware, an antique gold knot cuff and custom cushion cut citrine studs.

Style Tip: When packing for your next European or old city adventure, platform wedges are your best option for maintaining height without risking life and limb while maneuvering cobble stone streets.

A very special thank you to Stephanie Sunderland for these incredible photos.
