The One Item You’ll Wear All Year Long






Halogen Vest  |  Loft Shirt |  Loft Skinny Jeans (sold out, love these and these  |  Necklace (LOVE this one)  |  Alex & Ani Bracelets  |  Chinese Laundry Heels (I’m obsessing over these and these are under $50!)  |  Ray Ban Sunglasses  |  Clare V Leopard Clutch

 A vest is a must have in your wardrobe.  I bought this vest during the Nordstrom anniversary sale a few weeks back.  It has become my favorite item, and I’ve worn it over and over again.  See how I styled it in this post.  A classic vest like this one, can be worn casual or dressed up, but more importantly it can be worn through the seasons.  That is a tall order for one item.  Seriously.  The love I have for this pretty piece is real, and its possibilities are endless!

Blue on Blue

I love the color blue.  If you’ve followed my blog for a bit you’ll have seen shades of blue over and over again.  Sorry, but I can’t help it!  I gravitate towards it.  I was always hesitant to wear a blue tee and jeans together.  Over the weekend I wore this outfit.  I think it worked by keeping it simple, and adding some classic accessories.  My belt and sandals were a perfect match.  The sandals are on sale right now under $15, but hurry before they sell out!  And, to finish the look, my favorite clutch.

On a more personal note, for those of you wondering how my recovery from hand surgery is going, I’m healing very well.  All the bruising and swelling is almost gone.  I still struggle with gripping and holding things.  I also have a lot of stiffness.  All that is normal and can take months to completely fade.  I am very thankful that everything seems to be moving along, and pretty soon I’ll be better than new!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you have a lovely day!

Outfit of the Day: The Perfect Summer Dress







Blue Dress c/o Maggy London | Chinese Laundry Heels (I LOVE these & these) | Kendra Scott Tassel Necklace | Isaac Mizrahi Sunglasses | Clare V Leopard Clutch

Yes, blue is one of my favorite colors.  It is the color of the sky, the color of ocean waters, and it comforts and soothes me.  The color of the this Maggy London dress is perfect, and I can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore it (I also really LOVE this one too).  It is so soft and silky.  Its light weight fabric and bright color is absolutely perfect for the hot Florida summer that has already arrived.  It makes me feel ready for summer weekends filled with brunch dates with friends and Sunday dinners with family.  Oh how I want to wear pretty dresses, and drink mimosas!
