The best thing about summer fashion has got to be the ease in getting dressed for the day. A smart dress with fantastic jewelry can change my mood instantly. Well, that and a really strong cup of coffee. (P.S. ignore my horrific hair appointment was scheduled the very next day, thank you very much!)

Cobalt and white is the freshest color combo in hot temps. Plus, what better way to showcase your bronze-y glow? This happened to be an almost 90 degree day...I mean, what else do you wear when it's that hot? Not that I'm complaining. As you know, Chicago weather has been feisty this year.
