In the Name of the Rose

If someone would have told me a few years ago that I would wear pink dresses willingly as an adult woman, I probably would have called them crazy. Well, here we are now and I'm all over the multiple variations of rose that have permeated our collective psyche.

In fact, I'm going to go as far as saying that pink dresses are the new LBDs and I'm making the case here dressed in one on an evening dinner escapade in Soho. It's even very multifunctional since it can be both dressed up and dressed down.

Confession: I've worn a variation of this outfit with my trusty vans, with flat sandals, as well as well as with a dressier shoe like in these pics. It's basically the ideal getup.

Down by the Gatehouse

heleneisfor, faithfull the brand skirt, aritzia blouse, sol sana shoes, mohonk mountain house

Every summer we descend upon a magical part of Upstate New York called Mohonk Mountain House (look it up). We're lucky to have ea family member with some ties to the place, which enables us to escape the city bustle whenever we need to recharge.

It also happens to be an incredibly photogenic place. When we go up to the country to chill out for a few days, I like to keep things easy and breezy, chic and comfy. I mostly live in cutoffs and loose tees when we're in the cottage, but should we venture to the outside world it's all about unfussy threads like this outfit that will pull me together without much effort.

No makeup necessary, either.

Forest Fairy

heleneisfor x aritzia slip dress, Vanessa Mooney tassel earrings, Soludos sandals

I've discussed at length the ease and multitasking nature of dresses in the summertime. You just cannot go wrong: they're cute, they're literally the least difficult item of clothing to put on while making its wearer look the most dressed up. Win win, for real.

Another thing that I'm a big advocate for are contrasting elements. Case in point: a sexy slip dress paired with a sporty varsity bomber. Most perfect for chilly summer evenings in the country, I'll say.

And that's how fast you can become a forest fairy with a little attitude.

Summer in the City

realisation par valentina dress, heleneisfor, chanel pumps


I found the perfect summer uniform: this super light silk, rusty red polkadot number. It can be dressed up, it can be dressed down, it takes little to no place in a suitcase, it's perfect for both the beach and the concrete, and best of all: it's super easy.

Been living in this Réalisation Par frock and I'm so obsessed that I've already started eyeing other pieces to add to my wardrobe.

You just can't beat a little summer dress when the dog days are here. What's your favorite thing to wear?
