“For the spring/summer season you will see many versions of off the shoulder top. This is one of our favorites. I love navy and white for summer,” she said.

“The slouchy look is another trend. This sundress is so comfy, with spaghetti straps and side pockets. Where it to the beach or add a white jean jacket for lunch or dinner,” she added. “Dresses are always so nice and easy. This one has so much detail, you just need to add earrings!”
