Style Guide: Summer Soirees

I have some exciting news for any fans of my Paper Crown clothing line… To make way for the Fall Collection, there is a site-wide sale starting today, where all Spring and Summer pieces are 50% off through July 2nd. (Just use the promo code EXTRA50 at checkout.) Pretty great news if you ask me! So to kick off the sale, I decided to put together a little style guide featuring some of my favorite pieces from the summer collection. Whether it’s a barbecue, brunch, or wedding on your agenda, I’ve got you covered…


With the Fourth of July only days away, barbecue season is in full swing. This summery Paper Crown shirtdress comes in three colors, but there is something so fresh and all-American about navy in my opinion. Pair it with sandals and a floppy hat for a casual-chic look. Bonus points if you accessorize with a pop of red on Independence Day.

Casual Brunch or Lunch

When it’s warm out, so many of my weekend mornings are spent brunching with girlfriends on one of our favorite restaurant patios. This lacy shift dress is so easy to throw on, and can be dressed up or down with flats or wedges. So slip it on for morning brunch and errands, and then transition to dinner or drinks that evening.

Outdoor Wedding, Engagement party, or Shower

I love an opportunity to get dressed up. But I also love that most events this time of year are more ‘casual California chic’ than black-tie affairs. Here are a few pieces I would recommend for attending an outdoor wedding or shower, featuring my Paper Crown Bessette Dress.
