White Tunic & Suede Shorts

24 June 2016

Contrary to popular belief and my Instagram feed these days, not everyday is a dress day. I also reaaaallly love shorts, no really, I do. I was pleasantly surprised when I found these stuffed in the back of my drawer, likely not seeing the light of day since 2013, but don't hold me to it. Turns out they were the perfect addition to this Lisa and Lucy off the shoulder tunic, just the right amount of texture and coverage. Fitting for a NYC summer day. Side note: is anyone else feeling like the frequent wearing of gladiators this season might result in some wicked tan lines. I can't be the only one, right? Well, until I have to cross that bridge, I'll keep on with them and these breezy bohemian styles.

White Lace Maxi Dress

22 June 2016

It's likely that I already have enough white pieces in my closet but there was a something about finding this dress that made me realize that I absolutely needed it hanging in my closet this summer. I personally can't resist the lacy texture paired with the lengthy handkerchief hemline. It was an absolute steal for under $40 and pairs flawlessly with my lace up heels.

Tribal Cutout Fit and Flare Dress

21 June 2016

I honestly haven't been much for tribal prints for the last couple of year, they for some reason just didn't seem to fit into my esthetic anymore. But, there was something about this dress that kind of just won me over. I love the cutout placement, the heavy denim texture and of course the fact that it has pockets. It looks equally as great with sneakers as it does heels, which has quickly become a deciding factor when dress shopping these days. I personally can't resist it with a moto jacket for an extra pop of 'cool'.

Free People Modern Kimono Dress

20 June 2016

I've had my eye on this Free People dress from Zappos for a couple of months now. Honestly, the reason I didn't snag it earlier is because there was a struggle between color options. {Libra problems, the struggle is REAL.} Sure, I loved the white but my closet is overflowing all things white at this current stage of the season so the blue seemed like a more sensible choice, for my closet and my hair. It was clearly the right choice when it somehow ended up being on sale for $30 less than the white, so win. The dress is actually supposed to hit a little higher on my leg but my 5'3 frame makes it an ankle grazing maxi that just barely shows off the shoes, which I kind of love. Hello, bohemian perfection.

Throwback Thursday Style: Summer Dresses

16 June 2016

Since summer is upon us I figured it was about time for another 'installment' of throwback thursday style featuring one of my favorite summer essentials, the dress. I could live in dresses year around, they're just so much simpler than trying to shimmy up skinny jeans (which was actually my struggle yesterday in the 86˚ weather - it was a site, that's for sure). So, here are some of my favorite dresses from summer's past. 

How To: Watermelon Nail Art

15 June 2016

I'll be the first to say that nail art is really not my strong point, mainly because in most cases I get distracted and end up botching things up. But, in this case I found the watermelon inspired nails to be a little easier than I initially thought it would be. If you follow me on instagram you might have already spotted them on my feed over the weekend I thought I'd give them another share with some steps on how to get the look yourself. Because, why not be festive this summer?

How To: 

Start with a base coat of green. Let dry. 

Top with a red or pink leaving a sliver of green showing for the rind. Let dry. 

Next, with a lighter shade of green or white draw a line above the darker green with bobby pin or thin brush.

Now, for the seeds. Dot with the end of a bobby pin and black polish (you can use the lighter green/white as well). Let dry and top with a clear top coat for shine. 

Enjoy with watermelon slices.
