Two things happened for this outfit to work: I branched into louder summer patterns and worked on perfecting my warm weather top knot. The tie neck peasant midi dress is part of an Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 collection available at Nordstrom. Seeing as Olivia Palermo is my street style idol, it’s no wonder I fell head over heels for her line. I love the femininity of a midi length that’s turned modern with its sleek scarf detail and front slits. Plus, despite having longer sleeves, the lightweight fabric is breezy even on a scorching day (hence the hair off my neck).
