Highs in the Hundreds

Highs in the Hundreds

With Texas temps hitting highs in the hundreds, it's a constant battle not to wear shorts and a loose fitting tee. To get around this, I opted for a loose orange tank (which is actually a dress tucked in, but shhhhh... see it HERE) and pulled on my FAVORITE pants, a pair of black, wide-leg culottes from Zara. They feel like pajama pants, but somehow end up looking chic with a pop of color and a pair of heels.

Fringe, Stripes, & Chokers

Fringe, Stripes, & Chokers

Good Morning, Lovelies! Sorry for this post being a day late, but I'm currently in Arkansas for a wedding! (Be sure to look out for a vlog from this weekend, and pictures on Instagram!!) 

Anyway, I was with my mom in White House Black Market when I spotted these 70's style striped pants on the sale rack and couldn't resist! The vertical stripes make legs look miles long (though the heels help), and I couldn't resist pairing it with my beloved Tim Ryan jacket! This jacket makes any outfit into a statement, even a plain T shirt and jeans (Which I did HERE!)

Wedding Season

Wedding Season

With so many weddings going on this time of year, I decided to do a wedding-guest outfit post of my own! Something simple and summery that would work for an indoor or outdoor event. This orange dress is perfect because it's simple and easy but the color adds a punch! To shield from the sun, or cover shoulders in a cold indoor room, I added this neutral tribal print wrap, and topped those off with white ankle-strap heels and a complimenting pink lip with Revlon's HD Matte Lipstick in the shade Devotion

Spring in Seersucker

I've had my eye on these cropped seersucker pants from J.Crew for quite a while now, so when they went on sale, I had to grab them before they sell out! They're light, comfortable, and perfect for spring and summer, especially paired with a chunky sandal and a chambray button down. But what would a preppy outfit be without a statement accessory? Of course, I had to throw on my favorite tortoiseshell necklace with a tiny bit of color to match my orange Kat Von D lipstick.

Orange // Gingham

Orange // Gingham

Good Morning, Lovelies! Don't orange and navy go together beautifully? I was so excited when I found these gorgeous vivid orange Alice & Olivia wide-leg trousers on sale at Bergdorf Goodman in New York last week! I went in with my mother and grandmother just to see the store, and of course walked out with both new makeup and clothing (oops!).

Chilly

we've had a bit of a cold front in the city, and I was able to give this fur vest one last outing before spring/summer! I stuck to classic New York black, but added a little spring flair with this gorgeous orange lipstick by Kat Von D! I highly recommend these, they are amazing!

I was so excited to see these block heeled sandals from Target come in the mail, and couldn't wait to break them out in this gorgeous spring weather! They're not too tall, but definitely dress up even a simple jeans and tee. I paired them with an easy army green button down and jeans (cuffed jeans and block heels are a match made in heaven, no?)

Then there's my new nail polish obsession. Essie's Geranium is the perfect summer red. It has a hint of orange in there, and naturally I just had to pile on this fun hue with Clinique's lipstick in Poppy Pop, and a pair of equally bright earrings from Francesca's. 

Finally, I had a little spark of inspiration, grabbed a long silky scarf, and tied it as a belt. Scarves are the easiest and most versatile accessories. Around your neck, waist, head, bag, they can go anywhere! Grab one in a fun print and play around with it, you never know what you'll come up with!

The Orange Edit

The Orange Edit

I still had this dress in my closet from last summer, (though my Shirttail Dress is another good option) and paired with my new Clinique Lip Pop in the shade Poppy Pop, and Essie polish in the shade Geranium. The vibrant orange mixed with more red-orange hues is a match made in heaven!

As I scrolled the internet looking for more "orange inspiration" I stumbled upon this Topshop dress and fell in love! The scarf patter, the colors, the summery silhouette, everything about this dress screams chic summer sundress! And I cant think of anything better to pair them with than these chunky red-orange gladiator heels from New Look!
