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!

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!

Outfit of the Day: Leopard Clutch and Turquoise Blouse






Blouse via TJ Maxx (very similar here & cute option here)  |  Blank Denim Skinny Jeans  |  Jessica Simpson Wedge Sandals   |  Necklace, Bracelets, & Gold Hoop Earrings (old, similar here, here & here)  |  Michael Kors Watch  |  Clare V Leopard Clutch  |  Karen Walker Sunglasses

Today’s outfit of the day features my favorite clutch and blouse.  I’ve worn both so much lately.  I know, I know!  I have styled this clutch with almost everything, but I just can’t get enough of it.  And, turquoise is one of my favorite colors.  It reminds me of warm weather and beach vacations; deep blue and turquoise ocean waters off the coasts of Florida.

Hope you all have a lovely day, and thanks so much for stopping by!

Outfit of the Day: The Perfect Lace Peplum Top






H&M Lace Peplum Top (similar here  & very cute option here)  |  BlankNYC Distressed Skinny Jeans  |  H& M Pink Blazer (similar here)  |  Clare V. Leopard Clutch  |  Caged High Heel Sandals (similar here & here)  |  Michael Kors Mini Bradshaw Watch  |  Henri Bendel Bracelet c/o  |  Kendra Scott Necklace

Happy Friday everyone!  Today’s outfit of the day features the perfect peplum top.  A white lace peplum top can be transitioned from a very edgy casual look, like this one, to a more formal office look (just swap out the denim for a pair of dress pants).  The accessories really take the whole look to the next level.  My favorites lately are this Kendra Scott necklace (comes in different colors), this leopard clutch, and this Michael Kors watch.  Also, don’t forget a few bracelets!  Henri Bendel has some amazing ones, and their craftsmanship is simply superb!

Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

I have very exciting news!  The Shopbop friends and family event is going on now through April 9th.  You can take 25% off your entire order with the code SPRING25 (exclusions apply, please see site for details).  I picked a number very pretty items that will be perfect for the spring and summer months.  I can’t get enough of off the shoulder shirts and flowing dresses.  I’m looking for a solid brown/tan handbag because I don’t have one.  The Tory Burch satchel pictured above seems to be a contender.  And, I already have the BLANK distressed jeans (#12)  and the Clare V leopard clutch (#8).  I love both, and they are my go to items lately (as you’ve seen from my recent blog posts and instagram posts).   I hope you enjoy shopping this fabulous sale!

2014 fall & winter white – lust or must…


Alice Olivia Blouse  |  H&M Top  |  Philipp Plein Jeans  |  MANGO Jeans  |  Zanotti Pumps  |  White Pumps  |  Chanel Hangbag Clare V Clutch  |  Gold Bangle Set  |  Amrita Sign Bangles  |  Urban Decay Naked 3  |  Too Faced Palette

I think wearing white in the fall and winter months can be sophisticated and elegant.  The outfits above can easily be paired with a warm sweater or coat in any color.  Consider it a blank pallet to be dressed up or down in any way you choose.

In my next post I’ll show you what I pair with white denim.  So, stay tuned for that post.

Thanks for reading!
