Our beloved Rochester is known for its rich history, diverse culture, and fabulous lilacs. Celebrate the best of the Flower City by donning some fun-and-flirty warm-weather styles. When attending spring and summer teas, picnics, or parties during the warmer half of the year, remember soft colors and floral patterns speak to the season.

Whether serving it up in a strapless shirred bodycon midi dress by Shein and a mesh jacket by San Joy or wearing Mango-Pop’s square neck bodysuit layered beneath a high-waisted silk satin skirt by Keasmto, the fashion will meet the moment.

Sneakers can add a fun, casual edge to any dress. Adding an oldie but always a goodie—Converse—with both outfits accompanied by sheer vintage socks by Tyadow, create a hip, youthful look. Wearing sneaks with a dress can help you stay comfortable while also looking effortlessly chic.

There are times, though, when dressing “all the way up” for an occasion calls for a more formal sensibility. Here I combine nude pants (Cemi Cevi) with a vintage teeshirt (Conversation Pieces) and an organza pillbox fascinator (Florcasa) to bring out the bougie in this brown girl. Pair any of these mod and stylish looks with some tasty treats courtesy of Craves Bakery and a trip to some local boutiques in order to bring together the best of what the 585 has to offer.
