This weekend Sam and I attended the annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. It’s probably one of my favorite social events of the year. I get to catch up with industry friends all the while sipping on some of the best bubbly. This year I wore a very special dress I bought when Sam and I were in Paris last year. It’s by a Japanese designer, Tsumori Chisato. She adds an incredible sense of whimsy to all of her designs and creates her own beautiful prints. The  sailboat print for this dress came from watercolors she painted herself. It’s one of my favorite pieces. It’s delicate, playful, and the sheer draping adds a romantic touch. I pull it out whenever I need something special to wear. I love feeling confident knowing no one else will be wearing this dress.

I’ve always loved a good pleated skirt. I think it is a great addition to any seasonal wardrobe. This style has been around for decades and has consistently earned a spot in my wardrobe. My very first midi length pleated skirt was a gold vintage YSL piece that if you’ve been following this blog for a while is very familiar to you. This pale yellow version from Elizabeth & James is really lovely. Its’ subtle yellow hue makes it feel fresh and youthful. I can’t wait to continue styling it with booties, cozy sweaters and pretty coats as the weather cools off.

Something simple I’ve been wearing this week is this delicate silky slip dress.  A light jacket and layered gold accessories take the slip into the long summer nights. One of our favorite summer evening activities is the Yamashiro Night Market. It’s a low key farmers market with some great local food, live music, and breathtaking views of the city. With summer wrapping up I’m looking forward to fall, but I’ll miss all of the warm weather happenings that spring up around the city.

I’ve always had a soft spot for matching co-ords. I love the idea that I can wear them together or break them up to create multiple looks. This See by Chloe set is reminiscent of a ruffled dress I bought last year and wore on multiple occasions during the holidays. Since I still love that dress, reaching for it whenever I can’t find anything else to wear, I figured I’d love having something similar in separates. I wasn’t wrong. This skirt and blouse set is even lovelier than the dress that inspired the purchase. I can see myself pairing the skirt with a chambray top and sandals for a casual brunch date, or pairing the top with a skinny black trouser and heels for a date night out with Sam. The possibilities are plentiful and endless. I’m excited to continue styling the pieces while at the same time having an easy, chic go-to look for when I’m in a rush or feeling less than inspired.

I picked up both of these pieces from Farfetch. If you’re unfamiliar, Farfetch is a shopping destination that allows you to shop from over 700 boutiques all around the world. It’s perfect for when you’re searching for a specific item and you need it fast. My items came all the way from Italy and Poland, but arrived within days. They also offer free returns and pick ups, as well as same day delivery in certain cities. I shop almost exclusively at online stores and the ease that comes with buying from Farfetch is refreshing when you need the perfect item in a pinch. It gives you the opportunity to shop from boutiques you don’t have access to. and you know that you can return without going to the post office if it doesn’t work out.
