Recess DressCode


We relish the tastes of late summer. Strawberries, stone fruits, and other sweets are ripe for the picking, and we love the lazy living of long days and nights. We're going down to Strawberry Fields- and we're taking you with us! From Strawberry Shortcake's cake house to the fields where there's nothing to get hung about, these are our fave five pieces ripe for the picking.



Recess Dress Code Strawberry Fields Forever Strawberry Stomper Galliano BootsThese red and pink satin boots by John Galliano are a sugar-coated confection topped with a velvet bow. We absolutely love the strong punch they pack, and are the statement of any outfit. Layers of ruffles, crushed velvet, embroidery threads, bows, and supple leather all come together in a corset-inspired style that is both sweet and a little tart.


Recess Dress Code Strawberry Fields Forever Bullocks Wilshire Butterfly Kimono Flutter Sleeve Dress

Sheer swirls of plum and berry cover this entire kimono-sleeved dress by Bullocks Wilshire. We can't wait to run through the fields in this breezy, airy chiffon dress, arms outstretched. The draped kimono sleeves are open on one end, creating a long butterfly sleeve effect- our favorite feature of this dress. Our take on it? You're never to old for a good spin in a floaty dress.


Recess Dress Code Strawberry Fields Forever Prada Berry Bold Cherry Croc Sandals

You don't need a cherry pitter when you have these cherry red Prada ankle strap heels. The deep saturated color of these minimal heels give it presence- and every woman needs a great red shoe in their life. Textured crocodile keeps it snappy, like a perfectly ripe cherry.


Recess Dress Code Strawberry Fields Forever Bernard Perrin Summer Fruits Trapeze Dress

This fruit printed dress by Bernard Perrin embodies all of our summer favorites in one dress. A bounty of peaches, raspberries, strawberries, pineapples, grapes, and cherries burst forth from this easy trapeze dress- our favorite kind of sun dress, perfect for frolicking in the fields. All we want to do when we see this dress is bury our face in a bowl of fruits.


Recess Dress Code Strawberry Fields Forever Manolo Blanik Berry Marmalade

The glistening berry fringe on these Manolo Blahnik strappy mules are sweet like candy and make us want to stop and dance around. We love how unfussy these fringed babies are, easily sliding on for a day berry picking. The perfectly round translucent berry beads only add to the bushel.
