American Icons

There are some silhouettes that never go out of style: fit and flare, shorts and tees, and my favorite, the maxi. A maxi is the short girl’s best friend, elongating your legs and giving you a proportionate frame. They’re so simple to pop on and have just the right amount of fabric for those brisk nights (and AC-blasted offices!)

As we head into the summer months, I tend to gravitate towards classic American style: crisp whites, breezy fabrics, and patriotic colors. Luckily for me, Macy’s is celebrating the people, places, and things we love with their American Icons campaign. Some things I love? This Vince Camuto tie-dye dress and this Jessica Simpson laser-cut maxi. Both could easily take me from a day on the lake to dinner with friends, my favorite way to spend a summer day in Charlotte.

Kate Spade needs to cool it on cranking out the cutest summer accessories or I am going to wind up broke! While I’m lucky that there is an outlet close by, there are just certain things I’m willing to pay full price for. Case in point, these wedges. They pair perfect with everything in my closet, especially this Dress Up shift dress.

Fellow Georgia Peaches, Dress Up Boutique has an ever-rotating inventory of the perfect summer dresses and rompers. If you love something from the fabulous boutique (which you will), be sure to snag it quick because they only have a limited amount of each product! I have my eye on this neon number and this flared dress. Happy shopping!
