Paillette Embroidered Feminine Top

The last weekend of summer has officially passed, but it is still in the 90s in NYC, so I will continue to wear my summer pieces for as long as I can get away with! This Rebecca Taylor top is a few years old, and I love the feminine ruffles and paillette and beading embroidery. I paired it with skinny jeans and my favorite 80’s inspired slingback white and beige kitten heels (trend alert!)

I am en route back from a wedding in Vail, Colorado. Hope everyone had a great holiday!

Belted Dress

The days are getting longer, and the sun is shining a little brighter these days. Warm weather fashion is my favorite. I bought this dress back in college for my graduation weekend (5 years ago!) so I thought the timing was appropriate to wear it again for a blog post. It goes to show you, classic styles stick around. I love the speckled white and orange print, the feminine front ruffling, and the white wicker belt. I paired this dress with classic white slingbacks. They are very comfortable, and great for spring. This look almost feels Parisian-chic to me- maybe it’s the balcony!

Secret Garden

Last weekend I headed home to Chicago to visit my adorable baby niece, Claire. It was still a little bit chilly, but some of the flowers had started blooming. These bougainvilleas always make me smile and remind me of Thailand.I recently ordered this Cynthia Steffe marigold tiered frock online and I absolutely love it for spring. I went for a whimsical, Alice-in-Wonderland themed shoot. I paired the dress with a giant white grosgrain bow and some vintage strappy white slingbacks. I love the fuschia and marigold together.

Big thank you to my amazing Mom for taking these blog pics!!!
