One.  YSL Lipstick in #13 Le Orange:  One of my favorite reds.  A classic red-orange lipstick.

Two.  J. McLaughlin Wicker Bag:  This has sold out at least once already.  Wicker (or basket) bags are the it bag for this summer.

Three.  Jack Rogers Shelby Wedge:  A great staple that will go with everything this summer.

Four.  J. McLaughlin Off-the-shoulder Striped Dress:  Want so bad!

Five.  Mikimoto Pearl Earrings: I wear these almost every day!

Six.  Essie Nail Polish in Flashed






‘Tis the season for gingham galore!  The blazer and the maxi dress share the top spot on my gingham wish list!

Two. Jeffrey Campbell Flats

Three.  Draper James Dog Collar

Patterned Shorts

Shorts are a summer essential.  I’d like one of each of these, please!

  1. Draper James Pink Gingham Shorts
  2. Vineyard Vines Whale & Stars Shorts
  3. J. Crew Embroidered Cherry Shorts
  4. Maison Jules Anchor Print Shorts
  5. J. Crew Pineapple Tie-Waist Shorts
  6. Draper James Greenhill Blossom Scallop Shorts
  7. J. McLaughlin Paisley Scallop Shorts
  8. J. Crew Plaid Boyfriend Shorts
  9. J. McLaughlin Striped Scallop Shorts

Several trends are starting to feel really played out.  Please no more ruffled tops and dresses or tiered dresses!  Tassels and pom poms have got to go, too.  I never got on board with either of these trends and won’t be sad to see them go.  Tassels are especially distasteful to me since this trend conjures up some uncomfortable burlesque-related images for me.  I also think those highly popular tassel earrings share the shape of a Shih Tzu’s or Cocker Spaniel’s ears.  What can I say? I like simple, classic accessories.  Give me a beautiful pair of pearl earrings any day!

Happy Friday, all!


Style: White Dresses

Week of 5-29 Collage

Now that Memorial Day is behind us and summer is upon us, I’m feeling some white dresses!

  1.  J McLaughlin Embroidered Dress:   The perforated pattern on this dress screams summer.  Sure to draw envious gazes.
  2.  J. Crew Linen Dress:  Wear this with a nude pump or strappy sandal and a colorful clutch.
  3.  Lilly Pulitzer Shift Dress:  This is my favorite of the bunch.  I LOVE the gold detailing and the unique neckline.  This would be perfect with gold Jacks and an on-trend basket clutch.
  4.  J. Crew Eyelet Dress:  You can’t have a white summer dress list without including an eyelet number.  I really love the form of this one.  Great with a both a wedge and flats.  Super sexy without showing a lot of skin.
  5.  Maison Jules Wrap Dress:  This brand is a new fav of mine.  Cute, classic styles that won’t break the bank (and this dress is no different).  I want one of everything.

Busy week behind me with lots of changes next week.  Have a great weekend!
