I spent this past Saturday soaking up some seriously gorgeous weather and making the most out of “National Rosè Day”. (Who comes up with these holidays by the way? I would like to send a thank you note. 😉 )

Summer Style - J.Crew Factory Dress - Navy Dress - Yellow Cardigan - Lemon Cardigan - Straw Tote - Robert MarcOn this utterly relaxing afternoon, I wore a scoop-neck, A-line dress in navy. I love these simple dresses because they are so easy to dress up or down. They literally go with everything! Plus, they are universally flattering, so, naturally, I own about a thousand in this style. This one has pockets too, which is always a welcome bonus in my book.Summer Style - J.Crew Factory Dress - Navy Dress - Straw Tote - Robert MarcI layered a cotton yellow cardigan with a charming lemon motif over the dress. I tied the bottom of the cardigan into a knot (a la elementary school), which is something I love to do over dresses. While I adore cardigans, I can’t stand the frump-factor that occurs if it falls too far below my natural waistline. Tying a simple knot accentuates the waist, adds a bit of interest and eliminates any trace of frump.

The light, buttery color is so pretty, (not to mention a staple in my summer wardrobe), so I scoured the internet for alternatives for you (see here and here).Summer Style - J.Crew Factory Dress - Navy Dress - Yellow Cardigan - Lemon Cardigan - Straw Tote - Robert Marc

Summer Style - J.Crew Factory Dress - Navy Dress - Yellow Cardigan - Lemon Cardigan - Straw Tote - Robert MarcI finished the look with a straw tote that I bought over 10 years ago. I completely forgot about it until I stumbled across this gem during spring cleaning. (Score!) Fortunately, straw bags are on-trend this year and I found some look-a-likes for you that are way cuter than mine.
