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.

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!

Fashion Friday: New England Seaside Chic

Friday, June 13th, 2014

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:
SEASIDE

FOR HER: 1. // 2. // 3. // 4. (just bought this- LOVE) // 5. // 6. // 7. // 8. // 9. // 10. (a boat and tote to keep wine chilled-also makes a great gift) // 11. (this beach towel looks like a hide rug! DIE!)

FOR HIM: 12. // 13. // 14. // 15. // 16. // 17.

Want to dress it up a little bit? Swap in these shorts, clutch and wedges (from Sole Society, where all sandals are 60% off today!!! For real!)
