My mom and I are fond of similar silhouettes. So, I wasn’t surprised when she chose the Taryn Maxi dress. It has a flattering fit-and-flare silhouette with a deep v-neckline. It’s a comfy knit dress made super elegant by its banded neckline and waist. For reference, she is wearing the dress in a size 8.

This print really pops, so you can keep accessories minimal. My mom wore turquoise Kendra Scott drop earrings to complement the pink, blue and white in the print. She’s also wearing flat white sandals.

For me? I went with scalloped shorts. This particular pair of shorts is a Lilly classic (available in a few other prints). I’m wearing a size 4, and they fit perfectly because of the stretch poplin fabric. They’re a must-have for me because they’re such an essential for vacay style. They can be dressed up with a shirt/blouse, worn casually with a tee, and even be worn as a swimsuit cover-up.

I’m wearing a my shorts with another season must-have–platform sandals. My exact pair is sold out, but this other style is quite popular.
