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.
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
CITY: Keep it simple with some gold bangles and a funky gold clutch.
SEASHORE: Pearl studs top it off.
FORMAL GARDEN: Keep jewelry very simple and subtle to let the bold dress do the talking.
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:
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!
Summer always makes me fall back in love with New England. Our long, brutal winters leave most of us cursing the day we chose to live in a place where the air hurts our faces and grey skies hang heavy day in and out- but then summer comes and our charming seasides wipe those depressing winter memories from the slate and infuses us with love for our little corner of the world once again!
We have our own brand of preppy here in the Northeast- one based in khakis and pearls, boat shoes and stripes. One only needs to spend a few hours in Newport or Nantucket to grasp the style, but I felt inspired to pull together outfits for her and him that reflect the classic laid back New England shoreline look. As a special treat for our nine year anniversary (how the hell did nine years pass??) I booked Andrew and I a few nights at the impeccable and perfectly preppy White Elephant Resort on Nantucket in September (my favorite time to go there) so this is pretty much what we’ll look like on that trip:
