Balmy summer nights call for ethereal dresses, simple shoes and natural, glowing makeup. We joined photographer Harper Smith on a perfect evening as she took off in her Airstream for a lazy weekend in Topanga Canyon, and dressed her from head-to-toe in LA designers. Here are the pictures, just in time to inspire your weekend wardrobe.

Sun-bleached colors like cream and white make a floorlength gown look casual and effortless. Top with a fringed suede jacket and sunglasses for added insouciance.
