Breezy Summer Dress

Summer dresses make me SO happy!! Even better when it is a great paisley print in my opinion. This dress has such a cute smocked waist detail, and is silk so it is flowy and easy while still being excellent quality.  I love this dress with cute gold wedges and a little pop of pink in my clutch to bring out the pink in the paisley print.  Happy Shopping!

Full Skirt and Florals

At this point, I think it is safe to say that this skirt is a Spring staple!!  Rarely have I worn an item 3 times 3 different ways in such short order!  I love that this fun, playful skirt can be dressed up for any event, and that it so easily adapts to a workplace setting.  For this look I grabbed my trusty Kate Spade hazy floral top and Valentino Rockstuds.  Happy Shopping!

Travel Style

You guys.  This top has become an absolute staple in my wardrobe over the last couple of weeks!  I originally picked it up in blush pink to wear with my lululemon pants for our flights to Hawaii. When I travel I like to be comfortable, but also at least a teeny bit stylish and I am always always cold so layers are a must!  I saw this lightweight top in store just a few days before I left for vacation so naturally I snapped it up, then put it on and immediately went back for another color!  Now I am considering grabbing the other 2 colors as well, because I feel like it's one of those tops that I will be so sad to let go of when it gets old and ratty.  The top is soft, comfy, and very flattering.  It's also a great price point and can be worn as a workout to/from top as well as an everyday shirt! Happy Shopping!

The Polished Bow

There are few things in life that can make you feel as instantly polished as an A-line midi skirt. And this is absolutely one of my favorites! It's blush, it's lightweight, it has a slit in the front, and most importantly it has this gorgeous bow.

Are you guys ready for a pro tip?  Bows do not have to be double loop, bunny ear looking things, especially not when you are elevating your bow skirt to office wear.  To get this super cute half bow look, you start a normal bow, then continue to pull one of the loops through until you have a one-loop bow with loose ends that dangle and that's it!  Instantly polished with a fresh take on the classic bow! Happy shopping!

Paisley & Stripes

Pattern mixing for the win!  I am such a sucker for paisley and this pretty little skirt is no exception! The key when it comes to pattern mixing is to keep the color families in your pieces the same - here I played up on the blue and white of the paisley pattern with a simple navy and white striped T.  This would also look amazing with a pink-ish and white stripe or polka dots in either color family.   If you aren't feeling so brave, or just want to jump into pattern mixing slowly, pair a solid in between your patterns to break them up visually.  You get the same effect, but it feels safer.  My add here was a solid navy blue cardigan - bonus - this look can head straight to the office!  Happy shopping!
