Diane Von Furstenberg’s spring and summer collection was one of my favorites at NYFW. The vibrant colors, eclectic prints, and feminine draping in this collection are alluring and flatter just about every woman. I love the light and subtle abstract print of this dress in particular, which lends itself to be just as easily dressed up as dressed down.

When it comes to hair, I rarely stray from routine. I literally can’t recall the last time I had more than two inches cut and layers trimmed. In fact, I only started dying and highlighting my hair about a year and a half ago, ten years behind most of my friends. So when my hair dresser suggested getting bangs I declined and stored that suggestion away for a later day. Now, almost a year later, I’m finally in the mood for change. Here are some samples I’ve found to take to my hair appointment this upcoming weekend. Let's hope I don’t chicken out!

Mexican has to be one of my favorite types of food. It’s so simple, quick, and easy to make yet its deliciousness is worth hundreds of hours of cooking. So imagine how eager I was to combine that with my absolute favorite food of all, bacon. My hopes were high for an amazing new twist on my usual veggie quesadillas and these were phenomenal! The taste of bacon burst through in every bite and the avocado chunks were the perfect fresh and light ingredient to balance out the flavor. Paired with a margarita, this is the perfect summer meal.

I’d be lying if I told you I’m a huge fringe fan. The style too often teeters between 20s flapper and 70s boho. Both looks I appreciate, but they’ve had their time. So I was completely blown away when I stumbled upon a fringe shift dress from Asos that I absolutely worship. Behold! Simple shape, romantic lace, and flirty fringe all in one, yet still somehow understated. Paired with this structured color block bag and these pumps, you’ll be all set for a summer party!
