It's no secret that come summer, I'm practically living exclusively in little sundresses. Not only are they a great way to beat the heat, but a cute dress is such an easy, instant outfit. The problem of having an entire closet full of dresses (which I do) is that you loose the versatility of creating different outfits from the same pieces of clothing - unless you rely on accessories. This little blue dress from Club Monaco is absolutely adorable on its own, but paired with a statement head scarf it takes on new life. Even your choice of shoes and bag can help to shape and change an outfit; imagine the difference if you were to swap each out with a small cross body and a pair of nude flats. Come nightfall, a long cardigan layered over top is all you need. Simple! My love for little summer dresses runs deep, but it doesn't have to come at a sacrifice to closet versatility.

Can we talk for a second about the majesty that are these Salvatore Ferragamo cat eye sunglasses? When I first saw them, I gasped - they're basically my perfect sunnies! I love the two-toned brown and tortoise on the frame, and the gold detailing pairs nicely with tanned skin (or overly-bronzed skin in my case.)
What do you guys think? Are you as into the little sundresses as I am, or do you prefer separates? How do you get the most out of the items in your closet? Let me know!
