Summer Separates - Among Other Things

Summer Separates

At this very moment, it’s likely that I’m daydreaming, envisioning a carefree version of myself wandering aimlessly around the Hamptons wearing a colorfully designed maxi dress or skirt.

Unfortunately, my job (and, well, life in general) prevents this from becoming a consistent reality, but at least the second half of that fashionable fantasy is ownable.

Enter: Persifor.

I was recently introduced to the brand (of the skirt I’m wearing) at a blogger brunch in the West Village. Alex, the designer, is a sweetheart, and I remember instantly feeling drawn to her modern style, signature prints and patterns.

Most notably, this tropical leaf skirt encompasses much of everything that I appreciate about summer — bold prints, bright colors, shortened hemlines. (I need a tan, okay?)

For now, I’ll snap out of my beach-side reverie and focus on channeling a season’s worth of Hamptons-chic style — breezy separates and easy essentials that capture the essence of summer on the East End.

Until next time, you can find my banana leaf skirt and I weaving through the concrete jungle. (Or, more accurately, at my desk.)

  • I’ve really been loving tropical palm prints lately. Something about them just makes me feel like a lady who lunches (in Palm Beach, of course). You look gorgeous!

  • That skirt caught my eye right away when I browsed after reading your blogger brunch post! LOVE that necklace, great look!

  • That really is an amazing skirt! Love the print and the coloring. I’m always daydreaming too, girl. So no worries. We can continue to just dress for the places we’d prefer to be 🙂

  • Hallie – this is most definitely something of an awesome “summer uniform”. That fabulous skirt allows us to dream about being at the beach and in a tropical setting even when we’re not – LOVE IT! 🙂

    xo, Stephanie 🙂

  • The dentist vest is back already! yay! I love how you styled it this time with a boldly printed skirt! Gorgeous! And I’m totally stalking Ebay for a pair of those Pour La Victoire Mai wedges – ANY color will do, I just love them that much. Although, the lime green ones you’re sporting are beautiful and unexpected!

    • HAHAHAHA. I honestly just laughed out loud – yes, dental chic is back-to-back in action 😉

  • Love the skirt in this outfit. Banana leaves are becoming popular (not sure about that trend yet), but paired with white basics, it looks great!

    We’re dreaming about beach vacations, so we’ll see you in dream land!
