Easy Summer Outfit for Work or Play

In the summertime, I am all about living a blended life. I want to carve out special time with my family, but I also love my thriving business. Summer is a time when I need to be flexible. I need the same things from my clothes. That's why I love this easy summer outfit for work or play. It's a dress from Splendid that can go just about anywhere.

I've been wearing Splendid for years (click for a flashback to 2013!) - the style is definitely West Coast chic. Easy, unstructured pieces without a lot of fuss. Almost everything costs less than $200 and nothing has to be dry cleaned. I'll tell you more about the dress in a bit. First, let's talk about this setting.

This summer, we've been busier than ever. Loads of brands are working with us to develop special projects and events. My team and I have been using an awesome new women's club called, The Wing to make the most of our time.

The Wing Co-Working Space

The Wing is a co-working space collective and club, with offices in Manhattan and Brooklyn, and DC with loads more coming. It was founded by Audrey Gelman and Lauren Kassan in 2016 and I joined in 2017 when they opened the DUMBO Brooklyn space. Yes, we have office space in DUMBO; it's small and purposeful and NOT a great place for networking. 

I use the Wing for coffee meetings, networking events and as a home base when I'm in Manhattan (they have this great spot in the Flat Iron area as well as a huge space in Soho).

Skip the Crowds and Take Your Family Skiing in Waterville Valley

After a sizable snow storm over Martin Luther King weekend, there were plenty of lift lines and skiers heading to Vermont. Amazingly, most of them drove right past an awesome resort. I'm encouraging families to skip the crowds on the next winter holiday and take a family ski trip more

Easy Summer Outfit for Work or Play

Ok, back to the dress! This Splendid Chambray Ruffle Sleeve Shirtdress is really two in one. Underneath the shirt, is a cami that can easily be worn alone. The fabric is a chambray linen-blend that does wrinkle, but I think it looks fabulous that way.

Easy Summer Outfit for Work or Play

To complete this easy summer outfit for work or play, I slipped on my Cousins sandals (I featured them in this footwear fashion post last year). Designed here in NYC, these strappy sandals are perfect for travel or work. No blisters, no discomfort, all style. 

As far as jewelry, I added a few beaded bracelets and this fun tassel necklace that I picked up at TJMaxx a few years ago.
