I happen to be one of those people who adore food. I also adore fashion, and occasionally these two interests combine into quirky thoughts — like this post. Inspired by P. Kim at All That & A and Emily at Cupcakes and Cashmere, here are my Salemail picks that remind me of my favorite summer foods.

Can’t you just see this dress as the fabric interpretation of the push-up pop? Unfortunately, ice cream trucks don’t go driving down the street selling dresses, but if they did, this structured but still whimsical piece would make hot days much more bearable.

And here we have the sartorial equivalent of bruschetta. With the stylized punch of garlic and olives, but the simple elegance of tomato red, this DVF dress helps you look stunning without the effort – just like the dish itself.

And finally, a perennial picnic table favorite: watermelon. Strapless but still no fuss, this summer dress does watermelon one better – not only does is it completely seedless, but it also has pockets!
