This season I am leaning towards simple and easy styles. I love dressing up but, most days you can find me in a no-fuss simple colorful sundress. It is always wise to keep a comfy cover up with you. I rely on this sweater way more than I planned to when I was buying it. My go-to summer sweater. Today is one of those rare days where it rains and shines at the exact same time. It’s killer on a good hair day but sans the hair issue, it’s really quite nice. Warm sunshine, cool rain. It could be a lot worse — I mean it could be super windy. I’ll take misty rain over wild wind any day of the week. (If you’ve ever wondered why I touch my hair so much in posts it’s because it’s windy and I’m trying to hold my hair down so I don’t look crazy). Continue reading
I love summer. It means trips to all my favorite street fairs and theme parks. This romper was one of those random finds at Forever 21. I saw this adorable print and I knew I had to pick it up. I just thought how perfect for summer. ‘Island chic’ is my current love in the summer trends.
My husband always says that I am his ‘tropical vacation’ and in this outfit I feel like one. 🙂 Continue reading
Black and white is an instantly chic combo.
Long weekends in the summer are for fun outdoorsy times. One of my favorite things to do is a picnic with the family. Happy Memorial Day!
Ever met a piece of clothing that is perfect for right now!? If I had to pick an item out of my closet to symbolize September – with it’s beauty and it’s late-summer weather, it would be this midi skirt.
Talk about love at first twirl!!! The soft baby blue color paired with a peak-a-boo panel is a skirt dream come true. I am head over heels in love with the midi trend (exhibit A and exhibit B). This lady-like trendy skirt is easily going to be my most frequented transition piece with the current changing seasons. Anytime I can find a piece of clothing that is as comfortable as it is stylish, I am immediately sold.
Happy Hump Day! In the last few weeks of summer, it is likely to get excited about the new and upcoming fall fashion that is already so prevalent in all the stores. But, when the temperatures are still soaring high it is hard to incorporate fall weather friendly items into your outfit. My solution is to add fall accents. This cotton tee with faux-leather details is soft and breezy enough for a warm afternoon. When paired with a skater skirt in a deep plum color, the outfit will make you look fall ready while keeping you comfortable in the final days of summer.
Pair the look with some neutral accessories and a statement necklace to match the high neckline and ready to conquer your day in style.
Like all things, when getting dressed you often yield the best results when you don’t over-think it. This is why a simple denim dress turns out to be the most flattering yet comfortable outfit of the week.
Date nights are usually pretty casual for my husband and me, but since the nights have become warmer, I have been reaching for my heels. It’s a funny little thing, how a pair of shoes can instantly lift your mood (and height!). We ventured out for some Greek food the other night, and topped it off with delicious orange italian ice for dessert. I am so grateful for warm, summer evenings, they are quite possibly one of my favorite things. Continue reading
