INTERN CLOSET: garden state

Boys love simple and pretty, so our summer intern decided to give it a shot.

Sometimes the simplest, most pared-down outfit is also the most difficult to nail- but Allie fixated on the all-important details.

Florals can be tricky and picking the wrong one can take trendy to tired in a hurry. We fell in love with this Gap Floral empire tank dress not because it was on SALE, but because of the just-low-enough/ just-sweet-enough neckline. We do not love the length; however, when you get a dress this inexpensively, you can afford a little hem job.

Always looking for smart layers, we were thrilled to see Ali Larter in an all-American Gap Denim jacket on the cover of the August edition of Lucky. Denim pairs back beautifully with floral and the price is just right.

To accessorize, keep it clean with these Diane von Furstenberg must-have sculptural heels (such a wardrobe builder).
