"I wear jeans more often than I should, so this summer I'm opting for a denim dress in an attempt to look more polished. That said, I've recently been wearing most of my dresses with sneakers so I won't look that put together. Baby steps."

"A good pair of denim cutoffs can take you through a multitude of occasions. For a casual Sunday scouring the flea markets, I wear this Blank NYC pair with a good, old white T-shirt—it's the perfect, effortless summer uniform. Accessorize with a pair of flat sandals and cute straw hat, and call it a day."
