Suit Up

June 29th, 2012

blazer: Zadig & Voltaire, shorts: F21, tank: Urban Outfitters, shoes: Cathy Jean, necklaces (top to bottom): (of)matter, F21

This is my version of a summer suit. Mismatched. Shorts instead of pants. Fun print top. Instead of wearing the typical summer dress, sometimes it is fun to rework the idea of a suit for summer time. Of course it is much sexier than it is professional, but this doesn’t belong at the office anyway. Suit up by taking a pair of perfectly tailored shorts and pairing them with a contrasting blazer. Here I even mixed up the fabrics – the shorts are silky and the blazer is linen. Don’t forget to add on some killer pumps or your sleekest wedges. ♥

Bright prints are definitely a must this summer. When I saw these street style images I was inspired to raid my closet for the best prints and wear them at once! Each of these photos expresses the unique style of the subject and carry a similar theme – bright prints! These photos were taken by tommy ton during the menswear shows in Europe and look like a dream to me. Can you imagine being surrounded on all sides by this fabulousness? Yes please! ♥

Put a Robe On It

June 27th, 2012

robe: Anthropologie (similar), denim cutoffs: F21, top: Target, sunnies: Nordstrom, wedges: Cathy Jean

I haven’t worn this robe on the blog since its initial debut here when I paired it with leggings. Some people were on the fence about whether they would wear a robe as a piece of clothing outside the bedroom. I think they are fabulous! I added it on top of denim cutoffs  to add another layer, since this June gloom seems to be in full force around LA. The silky feeling of the robe feels nice on bare skin, so wearing it with these cutoffs was a no brainer. I like to keep the rest of the look pretty basic since the robe does have a gorgeous print that I don’t want to compete with. Are you guys still on the fence about this robe or have I made you a believer?

PS – I found the ONE last weekend! ♥

Searching for “The One”

June 22nd, 2012

It’s time for another round of wedding dress shopping! I did the initial appointment in northern California with my family, and since then I have been shopping on my own or with friends down here in LA. I found some I really love and will be trying them on with my mom and sisters back up at home this weekend. I am reallllly hoping to snag “the one” this weekend! We will also be spending Saturday celebrating my older sister’s birthday. Hopefully we will be toasting a purchase and a birthday this weekend!

If I come out empty handed, I may be forced to walk down the isle sans dress.  ♥

Summer Tuxedo

June 21st, 2012

summer tuxedo shirt: Loft (in France) (similar), leggings: LNA, shoes: Nordstrom (similar), bracelets (right to left): BaubleBar and Marc Deloche, watch: Invicta, sunnies: Nordstrom

This ruffle tuxedo front shirt may be the perfect version of a summer tuxedo, but it really works for all seasons. The long length of the shirt allows for leggings, which I adore. But this looks equally as fab over jeans or crisp black pants. Usually I belt this beauty, but yesterday I figured I would let loose. I let my hair dry naturally and just pinned up one side to go with the casual-ish look I had going. It definitely needed some accessorizing so I though the BaubleBar eagle cuff paired with my chunky watch did the trick. ♥
