I've really come to appreciate a good romper so much more this season. Done right, they can be a total staple piece, falling right into the elusive casual/chic category. I've been loving this white lace version by Free People, which has been perfect for a concert look (Taylor Swift was unreal at Gillette Stadium), a poolside coverup, and for just looking pretty on those hot NYC days.

I'm a big fan of jumpsuits. With the same length and cover of a maxi and a 70's-esque floral print, this version by Anthropologie acts as a great lightweight summer piece that I have been tossing on with flip flops and beachy waves, but I'm also looking forward to playing up the formal side with a topknot, statement earrings, simple heeled sandals and a plain black clutch.

In case you haven't already noticed (but you probably have), I'm very much embracing the cropped top/maxi skirt combo this summer. I think it's a playful and feminine twist on a summer look, and although I love the occasional maxi dress, this combination feels a bit more fun. This skirt is from this particular line at Anthropologie, so I'm especially partial to it. 

One of my absolute favorite things to do in the summer (and one of my favorite summer memories) is go to carnivals/amusement parks, so I thought it would make an appropriate backdrop for this quick little outfit post. I'm road tripping to another park next weekend, and while I'm horrible at remembering to update my snap story, feel free to follow me on snapchat (mstier02) if you want to see how excited I'll be about riding some roller coasters. Cheers!

My two-year-old niece has the best fashion commentary (when she saw me in this vest once, she exclaimed "koala!" - A high compliment). I already adored this chic green romper, so my niece only made me like it more when she pointed at it and cheerily said "I like your butterflies!". It's nice to know that my sartorial decisions are appreciated by such a wide range of ages. Bonus points to her, because I hadn't even noticed the butterflies in the design.

So if you've seen my previous two posts and numerous instagrams (@maevestier) then we've already established that Dubai has been such an incredible experience. Here's a collection of some of my favorite moments from my trip - hoping to have a video post put together shortly!

The best mangoes I've ever had - dubbed "coco mangoes", because they have a hint of coconut
