Sheer Factor

I know I've mentioned how much I love the fall months because of layering, but truth be told, I'm a summer girl at heart. This February baby (hi to any fellow Aquarii!) prefers warmer temps and summertime clothes - but that doesn't mean layering is out of the question. In fact, summer provides a welcome challenge to get more creative with outfits that are comfortable in the heat without being boring.

Enter: the sheer factor. This tulle layer under a satin cropped top (and especially with a scalloped edge) is giving off major ballerina vibes - offering something a bit more exciting than a simple tank top on its own.

Keeping Current

White Lace Panel Summer Dress

LWD season is officially here!

I scored this little white number thanks to my friends at Current Boutique in DC. I helped to host their 10th Birthday Celebration in May and wore this dress from their retail collection to the party, along with a crossbody bag and some great earrings. I had so much fun taking over their Instagram Story and scoping out their incredible vintage collection (where I found a gorgeous champagne-colored Moschino midi slip dress. Score). 

To me, the perfect summer dress is something lightweight and flattering that I can just throw on. (Plus, I couldn't pass up the lace panels on this dress).

Chic This Week 041

What's chic this week (V 041)

I can't stop eating Trader Joe's Coconut Strips. If you like coconut, then meet your new favorite snack food.

If these Raye slides weren't sold out in my size in the Peach shade, they'd be on my feet right now.

I'm not sure why rolled ice cream sounds so appealing, but the pretty ice cream creations have been all over my Instagram feed.

Favorite find of the week: This pom pom suit by Tularosa

Lusting after anything from SEA NY. Their eyelet tops are so gorgeous.

TIMELESS with Daniel Wellington

DW Rose Gold Watch

I'm super picky about watches.

In fact, I'm so picky that until recently, I only owned one watch. When it comes to jewelry, I gravitate towards delicate and classic pieces, and that translates over to watches as well. I've never been a huge fan of watches unless they were small and minimalistic - nothing bulky or bold. So, when Daniel Wellington reached out to tell me about their new Classic Petite collection, I was excited to find a timepiece that was my style and very much - excuse the pun - timeless.

The company and I are both of Swedish descent, so their minimalist design really resonates with my personal style. If I can find a watch that works this well with my favorite flowy summer dresses, it's a YES. Also, I can't say that I've been able to ignore their gorgeous ads featuring Kendall Jenner (um hi, casual). Thanks to Daniel Wellington, my new favorite timepiece is the Classic Petite Bondi watch: a thin white leather band and a white dial encased in rose gold.

I feel really lucky to have a platform where I can promote the things that I genuinely love,

And I really appreciate those of you who follow along with Chic Now. As a thank you, if you're interested in picking up a Daniel Wellington watch for yourself, you can get 15% off their entire site with the promo code MAEVESTIER.

New Favorite Neckline

Halter Neckline Summer Top

Top | Jeans (on sale!) | Belt | Shoes | Bag (similar)

Hope everyone enjoyed the long weekend!

If you follow Chic Now, then you'll know that I'm a fan of both off-the-shoulder and one-shoulder looks, but this new halter-style neckline might be a new favorite. On dresses, jumpsuits, or tops, it's a cool twist on the growing number of popular shoulder-baring pieces, and it's something that you can find at a variety of price points. There's just something about how the silhouette falls from collarbones to shoulders that makes this new neckline fit perfectly into my feminine wardrobe - and work well for everything from coffee dates to cocktails.

Scroll down to check out how I styled this new favorite & shop some of my favorite halter-style pieces at the end of this post.
