After having seen Alexander Wang’s Resort ’15 collection this week, I’ve been searching for sporty, tie-dyed pieces to add into my wardrobe. I’m not cool enough to pull the sneaker look together to attend fashion shows, but the slip-on is my shoe of choice when strolling around the city with my kids. This tie-dye pair is sold exclusively at J.Crew and screams summer to me.

I can’t believe Pre-Fall collections are already hitting stores. There are so many things I still want from the Spring collections. Thankfully, markdowns are starting for the season, so I’ll be browsing around this weekend. I try to hold myself back and purchase only items that I can wear now, and this VICTORIA Victoria Beckham dress fits the bill perfectly. It has the updated silhouette that we’ll be seeing all over for Fall, but it’s sleeveless, so I can wear it to a couple of fancy parties I have this summer. The midnight navy is subtle, but the sequin panel skirt makes it pop.

Simple sandals for the summer are a must, and Ancient Greek Sandals makes some of the best ones around. Whenever I’m at their showroom, I’m mesmerized by the variety of options. The collection is huge, and the simple kicks come in numerous styles and colors. You can see their entire collection here. For the beach, I’m investing in these slides in natural with my personal monogram, ML. The customization will be available on Moda Operandi starting June 1, so you can have your personal seal added, too. The best part? The initials are on the house.

Totême is a new line by blogger-editor Elin Kling and her fiancé, Karl Lindman. The baseline of the collection is staple pieces done in neutral colors. It has a refined, Scandinavian sensibility geared toward the global woman. This beige linen pant is all I need for the summer. It’s polished enough for the office, but perfectly relaxed for summer getaways. Totême is available now at theline.com, Vanessa Traina Snow and Morgan Wendelborn’s superchic e-tailer. Traina Snow is also hosting a dinner tomorrow at her corresponding concept store, The Apartment, to celebrate the launch of the collection. You can bet that we’ll be there.

One can never have too many dresses, and one can definitely never have too much leopard print. I’m now looking for a flowy frock to wear all summer, and Zimmermann’s leopard-print number is just the ticket. I’ll wear it with sandals for long walks in the city, and dress it up with high heels for an evening party. All in all, it’s the perfect statement-making summer basic.
