We just couldn’t stay away from the lovely Helena Bordon. This blogger is back with another perfectly casual and chic outfit. Helena always adds a little something unexpected to her looks, and that furry Fendi is so kitschy and fun. Helena’s white tee and trouser pairing totally fit today’s summery vibe. A knotted shirtwaist adds a touch of normcore, while stilettos keep things classy.

As the digital editor of Harper’s Bazaar, Chrissy Rutherford knows all about current and future trends. She says that she loves the simplicity of the current season (and her casual-chic ensemble is pitch-perfect!).

Baby blue is shaping up to be a major color theme, and I love the subtle pattern of her wrap blouse. A little Céline goes a long way, too! The bolder blue of her modern cat-eye sunglasses is a cool touch. And culottes are the cut of the season—I love the unique design of Chrissy’s pair.

Rumi Outside Prabal Gurung

Fashion blogger extraordinaire Miss Rumi Neely (Fashion Toast) stole the show today, thanks to her new puppy. She walked up with that fuzzy li’l pup and everyone lost their minds!

Of course, Rumi is also a fashion maven and looks stunning, even without the added draw of a cute baby animal. It was blazing hot today in NYC, so her understated whites were a great choice. It wouldn’t be Rumi without a little edge, and her textural clutch and platforms add just enough contrast to her look.

There’s a lot going on in Mariam’s look, but I think that’s what I like the most about it! It’s exciting to see someone incorporate vintage pieces, as well as high street brands, into their Fashion Week outfit. It’s reassuring to know that one can still look chic and cool, without spending their annual salary on one piece!

I like Mariam’s black and white palette and print mixing. Her fuzzy jumper adds just the right touch of texture.

Peony Lim is back and showing us la vie en rose! You all know that I love a lady suit, and Peony’s is bright and fun. J’adore the cropped trouser, the floral detail and the preppy slipper pairing. This gorgeous gal is always a joy to photograph, thanks to her impeccable taste and sunny smile.

Meet Shannon, our Downtown Seattle Store Personal Stylist Manager. We tapped her to share what she and her customers are loving most for summer. Here’s a list of her top 10 favorites.

1. Trouvé Faded Denim Shirt. Denim is still in; wear it as a shirt or leave it open and throw it over a great summer dress.

2. NARS ‘Thakoon’ Nail Polish. I love these bright, fun colors! They are limited-edition, so once they’re gone, they’re gone.

3. Tracey Reese Cowl Neck Dress. Yellow is the ‘it’ color. This piece is effortless and breezy—perfect for any special occasion for summer. Need a dress to wear to a wedding? Check!

4. Sequin Small Crystal Station Enamel Bangle. Layer these on to create some chunky accents with all of your lighter pieces. You can wear one or five and create a unique look every time.

5. Ali Ro Short Sleeve Anorak. The perfect summer jacket, it’s lightweight and stylish. Transition into fall by layering a long-sleeve top underneath.

6. Ray-Ban ‘Classic Wayfarer’ 50mm Sunglasses. Who doesn’t adore these updated, casual colors? My favorite is the matte grey brown—they go with everything.

7. DVF ‘Drew Connect-Dia Jacquard’ Shoulder Bag. The perfect combination of function and trend. Get it now and be set for fall.

8. Superga ‘Cotu’ Sneakers. These are all the rage right now! Cool, classic and comfortable for everyday ventures. Choose a basic or go bold with a fun fashion color for summer and pair them with your printed bottoms!

9. Splendid Print Short. What a great way to transition into summer while staying on trend with printed bottoms. I love this pattern, because it’s subtle and easy to wear with so many things—great with a denim shirt and Superga sneakers to complete the look!

10. Johnathan Adler Gothic Rose’ iPhone Case. Our phones need updating too. I just bought this and LOVE it.

Hope everyone has a great and sunny summer!

This playful pop of color caught our eye over at Marionberry Style. We love the airy summer look paired with a no-nonsense watch and a pretty pair of nude pumps.

Marion told us Nordstrom is practically her second home (we heart you, too!) and gives some sage styling advice in her post: “Wearing brighter, complementary colors near your face (or upper half) makes people look at your face more. The bottom half of my body is covered in a neutral camel…which makes the top half pop!” Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.

Enjoying that Splendid top? Check out all 8 delightful colors.

This season’s bright hues and bold stripes have your editors waxing nostalgic for the mild, sub-tropical climate and color-washed public spaces of Valparaiso, Chile.

Our inspiration: Local lore in Valparaiso (Valpo, if you’re in the know) says that boat painters used to place excess buckets on the docks, leaving townspeople free to coat their city with the saturated pigments. And speaking of saturated, what could be better for exploring one of Chile’s most vibrant places—or any warm-weather destination—than this Splendid stripe maxi dress. It’s flirty, cheery and ready when you are to paint the town red—or whatever color suits your fancy.
