Blue Crew

Blue Crew

Two of my favorite things when it comes to summer style: vivid hues and ladylike silhouettes. Summer is just the perfect time to run around it a poplin midi skirt, or in this case, dress! As soon as this vibrant blue number came in at J.Crew, I knew I had to have it. It's ultra-feminine and attention-grabbing, and I plan on trying to make it work for fall/winter too.

One of the best parts of working retail is when an amazing sale goes up out-of-the-blue, and you're able to snatch up the best bits before anyone else for crazy cheap! I scooped these J.Crew Gemma flats up for about $13, and I'm in love! They add such a gorgeous pop of color to any outfit, and match my Kate Spade Cedar Street Maise perfectly!

Peter Pilotto

I hope you've all had a wonderful week and are excited for the upcoming weekend! I'm still dreaming of last weekend when I got to fly up to Arkansas for a beautiful wedding! I vlogged the entire trip and wedding HERE if you want to go watch the video! Anyway, as I was edititng the footage, I noticed that I hadn't gotten a single shot of what I wore to the wedding, so I decided to re-create everything for an outfit post today!

I will, of course, use any excuse to wear this gorgeous Peter Pilotto Pallas dress that was given to me from the internship last spring, and it was absolutly perfect for a summer outdoor wedding! (It wasn't unbearably hot, but we DANCED all night long) I wanted to make it very bohemian-glam, so I paired it with some gold hoops from Francescas, and some comfy but cute block heeled sandals, so that it was easy to walk on grassy areas while still looking cute.

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

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!).

May Wishlist

May wishlist - Southern New Yorker - Tarte, J.Crew, Mark & Graham, sandlas, espadrilles, waterproof makeup, spring, summer, beach, blazers,

This next month is going to be insane! With finals, a wedding, moving home, starting my summer job, and settling back in, I'm excited to get going! Of course, I'll be hitting the beach (hopefully a lot) this summer, so sandals, a cute beach hat, and tote are a must! (Check out last months wishlist for swimsuits!) Plus, with J.Crew releasing so many gorgeous styles for Spring / Summer, I just have to grab a few! There goes my paycheck!

Sandals & Espadrilles 

Time to paint those toes, (might I suggest Essie's Tarte Deco?) and strap on something pretty! These jeweled sandals from J.Crew Factory and Espadrilles from Nordstrom are perfect for your spring and summer wardrobe!

Anything Mark & Graham

I may have left the south, but my love of monogramming will never die. Mark & Graham has a huge assortment of bags, apparel, accessories, and more that you can custom monogram to your hearts content! This hunter green plaid tote and scarf are too cute! A little wintery, yes, but they have tons of summertime items just waiting for that perfect circle script! 

Everything J.Crew

My love of J.Crew is absolutely no secret. Half of the time, I look like a walking advertisement for them. But this season, they've nailed the spring wardrobe. I mean, NAILED it. On my wish list: Teddie Pants in every color and pattern, an Uptown Tote, that gorgeous yellow off-the-shoulder top, and every shoe and accessory offered. (That may be overdoing it a little....or maybe not) 

Tarte Summer Makeup

Tarte Lights camera splashes waterproof mascara
Tarte waterproof cheek stain

Tarte has long been known for amazing, natural, waterproof makeup, and the release of their Rainforest of the Sea collection could not have come at a better time! Everything is geared towards that easy, flawless summer look that will keep you fresh and dewy without melting off your face in the heat or water! 

What's on your wishlist this month?

xoxo,

April Wishlist

April Wishlist

Spring is in full swing! Or at least that's what I tell myself as I look at the rainy, 37 degree weather outside my window. Well, at least until it clears up, I can dream of swimsuits, beaches, glowy skin, and spring florals! This month's favorites centers around just that!

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!
