Fashion Friday: C. Wonder-ful

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Sorry for the late post AND the double day of fashion but it IS Friday after all. I’m tapped out after this week so here are just a couple gems I found on C. Wonder I wanted to share, so I pulled together a few outfits to get you through a summer night out and an early fall weekend day. Because I for one am excited for fall.

Classic Cool.

First of all, thank you so much for all the thoughtful words of kindness yesterday. It was so uplifting for more people than just me. It’s nice to remind ourselves that none of us are alone in our struggles.

But let’s distract ourselves today with some pretty things. I love sources that that not only have amazing clothes, but home goods too. And a double love them when they are curated with a seriously edited, classically cool aesthetic.  The Dreslyn is one such source, sprinkling in some really awesome home goods within it’s fashion selection.  Their clothes (from the likes of Theory, A.P.C., Band of Outsiders, BLK Denim and Sophie Hulme) give off that “cool French girl” vibe.  Here’s a nice little collection of their simple, modern but classic goods in stripes, plaid, denim, stone, leather, tweed, leopard, wood and gold!

Fashion Friday: Weekend Getaway

Friday, July 11th, 2014

A simple, easy outfit that can take you from walking around town to dinner out. I hope you have fun weekend plans that require cute clothes! :)

weekend

1. Adorable lightweight top from Madewell in a more subtle leopard print.

2. Leather and vintage coral tassel necklace from Ex Voto’s new summer collection.

3. Sleek shades.

4. A light anorak for chilly nights (and one that will get you into fall too! This style isn’t going anywhere!)

5. My new favorite white jeans, J Brand’s midrise rail- amazing fit (skinny but not tight in the ankle and a rise that’s not too high or too low!) and perfect amount of stretch.

6. Denim cutoffs to pop on if it gets hot. Adorable with that top!

7. Slip on sandals with a hint of prep.

8. The perfect weekender from Barrington Gifts you can personalize with choice of print, color and monogram! I adore mine!

 

Fashion Friday: What To Wear For Wedding Season

Friday, June 27th, 2014

Spring and summer mean wedding season for a lot of you, and that means it’s time to perform the panic-stricken “I have a wedding this weekend what do I wear?!?!” shopping trips! To help you out I pulled some dress/shoe pairings from for a variety of types of weddings from Nordstrom to give you a head start! CLICK IMAGES FOR LINKS!

FORMAL: Statement earrings complete this look

Fashion Friday: White Wash

Friday, June 20th, 2014

I am pretty sure every summer I do a post on white dresses, but the reason is- everyone needs a great white dress for this season! Like the little black dress is to fall and winter (and spring, even), the little white dress is to these balmy few months! A little inspiration gathered from Pinterest:
summerwhites

I found my favorite white summer dress at Kate Spade (sadly it’s sold out), and even though after this picture was taken I made out with a puppy on the sidewalk who put his dirty paws all over the skirt, I don’t care. Summer whites get dirty. It’s just a fact. So pack your Tide Sticks, stock up on bleach and get to it.

(the shoes, however, are awesome and still available)

I scoured the internet looking for a white dress for just about everyone- from the modern gal to the preppy one and everything in between.  To complete any of these looks you’ll just need a nice tan leather or gold sandal and a good pair of nude underwear!
