A casual minidress is a look that can take you from coffee to running errands to brunch to a date and back. I excitedly wait for minidress season every year, and it seems Parisian fashion girls do, too.

The slip dress has become the go-to look for a five-minute way to create an effortlessly chic outfit. Personally, I'm obsessed. I love any look I can style with sneakers, sandals, or heels.

Tailored trouser shorts are the perfect mix of work and play. The tailored look gives these shorts an elevated feel while keeping the casual vibe of a classic short. You can go with a classic neutral pair or be bold and go with a colorful or patterned pair. Either way, I'm in love.
