obsessed -- dallin chase.

Multistripe Colorlane Pullover
ATTAINABLE: Madewell Multistripe Colorlane Pullover
www.madewell.com; $85
There's a lot to love about this sweet little Madewell sweater.  I adore the color scheme (such a gorgeous way to bring mint into fall), and the simple shape is incredibly versatile.  It would be so chic with a knee-length tulle skirt or skinny jeans and boots.  My favorite part, however, is the perfect details -- from the width of the stripes to the elbow patches, each stitch makes this sweater feel unique.

Some designers create stunning looks that are always perfectly put-together.  Lines are neat, accessories are coordinated.  But then there are the others.  Brands that just have the "effortless" vibe down perfectly.  Dallin Chase is just such a line.  Every piece, from flirty shorts to charming rompers to floaty dresses, has a relaxed feel that is hard to deny in the summertime... Especially when the sales are as fantastic as they are right now.

I positively adore this sweet little raspberry-hued dress.  It's such a simple shape, and I love that the cut is reminiscent of a really dressy T-shirt.  It's just such an easy piece that would pair perfectly with flat sandals or wedges for a sunny day or a great pair of nude pumps and a load of sparkly jewelry for an evening out.

When it comes to really statement-making pieces, ones that involve sequins and color and a little extra glamour, I like them to stay as simple as possible.  Though these shorts are hardly subtle, I think that they're such a fun alternative to a glitzy dress or skirt for a hot summer night out.  Perfect with a chic pair of heels and minimal jewelry to really make a statement.

Though this frock is more structured than most of the Dallin Chase pieces, I'm totally enamored with it.  The simple shape is sweet and still a little sexy, and I love all of the paneling and seaming.  Combined with the killer color and slightly pleated skirt, it makes for the perfect ladylike dress for a shower or lunch.

It's not often that I can say that I'm truly taken in by a romper, of all things -- but this one really does it for me.  I love the long sleeves, breezy shape, and fun, slightly psychedelic print.  The mandarin collar is too cute, and I think that this would be a fabulous piece to wear through the last, drawn-out days of summer.

What are YOU obsessed with right now?

Hi, Josie!
You shopped some really good pieces! To be honest I'm drooling over fall inspired pieces, like Frye's lace up Melissa boots, swoon!!! However, that bustier dress caught my eye the most. I'm into all things lacey, corset-ish, and just downright lingere-esque because it's too hot to wear anything else haha!
