I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend!! I know I am…

I figured I would post this bright and cheerful oversized sweater today with white jeans because it’s Labor Day and you know what that means….

When it comes to wearing white after the holiday what are your thoughts? I know the so called ‘rule’ is a lot more relaxed these days…but many people still refuse to wear white after Labor Day. Personally, I love an all white outfit even in the winter. I think it can be stunning, especially with the right shoes.

Today, I added my favorite pair of Christian Louboutin pumps for a statement shoe. I love the mix of yellow, gold, and pink throughout this look with an added touch of sparkle. Shop below:

Firty Florals

Tee:Forever21(sold out,similar here/dress here)|Overalls:Forever21|Sandals:Birkenstock

Here is something to brighten up your Monday blues….this outfit is under $30. I originally had stopped in Forever21 and picked up a few pieces that I thought were cute and could mix with some other items I had at home. When I was paying in line I had the idea to layer this striped tee under the floral romper for a little pattern play. One trick for mixing patterns is to keep them in the same color family. Another is to treat stripes as a neutral.

I think this romper is too adorable to pass up. The red allover floral print is lush and striking and the boxy fit and adjustable straps lend you that overalls vibe. Below, I also added a few other similar pairs I love just as much. Thanks for stopping by today.

XOXO,

While I'm not feeling the greatest these last few days suffering with allergies that almost always turn into sinus problems, I'm forcing myself to keep on trucking. A little slower but non the less. I have been wanting a pair of these Stella McCartney shoes for a while now and usually by the time I'm ready to pull the trigger they are already sold out. This time I was all over them and I'm obsessed with them. They run about a half size big so beware if you should decide to get them. There are so many ways I want to wear them, I think they look good with just about everything. Today I paired them with these white jeans and a striped tee and then added a belt to pull the color from the shoes. I love to mix color and pattern to add that little spark to an outfit. 

While not looking forward to fall, I wanted to start giving you all a little insight to what I have been seeing. I will be updating you from time to time now about what is popular for the upcoming season. I am seeing a lot of velvet, jacquard and leather, patchwork, large floral prints and right up my alley, Sooo many ruffles. The shoes are gorgeous... and everything is so rich looking. I feel like we are headed back to a time of ladylike elegance. Some of my favorite things this year are the Gucci kangaroo jacquard loafers, wide belts and I am loving the hand held bags of yesteryear. They started showing up this summer and are on my list for fall. I have started my pre-fall additions so be sure to check them out.

Shoulder Exposer

Damn Daniel….back at it again with the white vans…….(but seriously)

I have been wearing the classic slip-on with just about everything this summer. From shorts, dresses, and maxi skirts as you saw on the blog yesterday.

On hot days like today it is easiest to wake up and throw on a mini dress. As I’m sure you know off-of-the shoulder pieces are everywhere these days and a summer must-have.

If I was to pick out all of my favorite off of the shoulder dresses this season you would be scrolling for hours. I decided to stick to similar tones and easy day-to-day styles.

When I was shooting looks the ice cream man drove by and I had this brilliant idea that I needed to get something and use it in my photos. If you are wondering why I am barely smiling…..it is because out of all of the options I chose the blue and green sour popsicle and it completely turned my mouth colors…..so safe to say I will not be doing that again. Thank god it was one of my last looks.
