etsycreamdress1.pngIt’s officially August, but there’s no shame in hanging on to summer as long as possible (just don’t be the woman wearing flip flops in the snow). So we’re making it officially OK to still buy extremely summery white dresses! We love this cream babydoll option from Etsy - the gathers add an unexpected twist. Even more, we love the $40 price tag - it might take off some of the guilt of buying a summer dress at the end of summer.

In honor of MTV’s “The Jersey Shore” premiere last night, we bring you… the Snookie wedge. Well, kind of - whether or not this shoe is actually named after the petite Jersey-ite remains to be discovered. But the sky-high (4.5 inch) heel from Matiko Footwear would certainly help a petite girl out! We love the chic gold studs against the grey suede - what do you think?

This trendy resin cluster necklace from Bella Vita Jewelry is a great transitional piece for summer to fall. Wear it now with a white tank and cargo or denim shorts for a casual-chic look. In the fall, pair it with a black dress to add a hint of the season’s army-meets-glam trend to your nighttime style. The necklace features resin shields with turquoise treen ceramic beads and a ribbon embellished with gold designs. Buy it for $58 at
Founded in 2002, Alanna Bess is a high-end contemporary jewelry collection featuring statement designs and bright colors. The pieces are the perfect compliments to summer outfits. The designer, who the line is named after, gained her bold aesthetic during her experience studying abroad in Florence in 2004. We love this Lucca Pink Chacedony necklace, which is gold with a pop of vibrant pink. The necklace retails for $378 at

We love this quirky teal and fuschia knit striped dress on Etsy. The colors are bright, unexpected and perfect for summer. The fringing and beading along the hem add more unique details. Style it with a belt for a pulled together look, or let it stay loose for a bohemian vibe.

Striped Barbie Beaded Fringe Minie Dress - $30 at Etsy.
