Romper & Vest

Wooo, It's Memorial Day and boy has it felt like Summer this weekend. I am 100% not ready for 90˚ + weather and was quickly reminded of this over the last few days. Thankfully a cool breeze came in last night and fixed things - whew. So, I'll be taking full advantage of days where I don't feel like I have to strip down to a swim suit to walk around the city to avoid melting. Obviously these were taken a couple of weeks ago, but in reality I am still very much in love with this combination, 90˚ weather be damned.

Little Black Lace Dress

Ok, we've been talking about little white dresses a lot but who can forget the original classic dress, the little black dress? Honestly, if there is one piece that my closet is constantly lacking it's a good LBD. Sure, I have plenty of black but as it turns out, not so much in the closet staple variety. Well, actually now I do. How freaking cute it this little lace number? It completely reminds me of those amazing Self Portrait dresses, who else has been obsessing over them? The perfect amount of lace paired with incredible silhouettes and cutouts, yes please but a little bit above my price range, for now. Anyhow, this one is much cheaper and from Chicwish, big shock there. I actually switched things up a little bit and traded the heels out for a new pair of white sneakers for a more casual vibe. Obviously the look couldn't be complete with a bold red lip and my ridiculously outrageous a awesome new phone case? Am I the only one who collects absurd cases? Hopefully not because I'm sharing my favorites next week - so, get ready!

Lace Flare Dress

As far as essentials go, I try to keep my closet stocked with fun white dresses. Honestly, who knows when the mood (or occasion) will strike, and having a few to choose from makes a world of difference. My newest addition? This lace flared sleeve dress from Chicwish. It hits all of the right spots with me - retro, lace, and not shortage of fun, just length. A classic retro mini. You could probably say I'm doing my very best to channel my inner Megan Draper, or really, Joan Holloway with the oversized sunglasses and bag. Mad Men might be over but the style is still very much happening, at least in my closet.  Just in case you love my look just as much as I do you can grab the dress and the shoes below, for under $100.

Denim T-Shirt Dress

Over the last few months I've become pretty partial to all things denim. Be it jumpers, dresses, or overalls, they some how have found a way into my shopping bag. I don't know what's gotten into me but for some reason, they just fit into my Spring wardrobe so flawlessly. I personally favor the pieces that are easy to throw on and take little to no effort. Buying this Brigitte Bailey t-shirt dress was a no-brainer. It's one of those pieces that can be dressed up or down, layered and worn with white sneakers, sandals or heels. It's simple, really. Since my first wear happened to be during the weekend I ended up wearing my nude flatform sandals with the dress, adding the fringe bag and neck scarf for an pop of detail. Who's else is on team denim?

Picnic Basket Essential: SunChipsⓇ Veggie Harvest

It’s finally picnic season. It’s time to break out the checkered blankets and find a nice place in the shade to lounge for the afternoon. Of course all picnics aren’t complete without snacks, right? I am not exaggerating when I say that one of my favorite snacks since I was a kid is SunChips®. There’s just something about that wavy, whole grain chip that pops when it comes to snack selection. I love the taste and find it’s a snack I can feel good about. I know I’m not the only one who loves them...

So I was pretty excited when SunChips® rolled out with two new veggie-infused offerings: Veggie Harvest Farmhouse Ranch, and Tomato Basil and Cheese, just in time for my trip to North Carolina. Who can resist kicking into vacation mode and relaxing on the dock with a handful or two of Tomato Basil and Cheese or Farmhouse Ranch? Not me. They’ve become an instant picnic basket staple. I can guarantee that mine will not be lacking one or both this season.

Like most SunChips®, the Veggie Harvest flavors are packed with whole grains and are sans preservatives and artificial flavors. The only difference is the addition of real peas to bring out the veggie. Each variety comes with a 140 calorie serving size {about 14 chips} and is available at most grocers for under $4. If your grocer is lacking, ask the store manager if they can order some for you- they’re that good. If you’re not in the mood for a big bag variety they also come in snack sizes.  

Enjoy them alone or with some of your favorite dips like hummus or Greek yogurt, to round out the flavor.

6 Ways To Wear Bold Stripes

Holy Cow, it's almost Memorial Day? How is that even possible? Obviously no Memorial Day get together is complete without wearing some sort of stripe. Duh, it's practically your patriotic duty to wear them. Anyhow, I'm wearing my stripes with the overalls I've been coveting for what seems like forever. I just snagged them on sale (in stores) for $35, marked down from $158. So, stripes and overalls it is, with the addition of a crown braid and silk neck scarf. A little Americana, a little Parisian and I'm 100% ok with it. Now, for some BBQ.

Back To Boots

Fickle weather calls for bringing out some of my fall favorites with a touch of spring (ie: this adorable fringe bag from Marshalls). While, I'm not entirely enthusiastic about the on-again off-again weather pattern I'm 100% ok with putting this swing dress to good use in another season. Though in all honesty I'd rather being wearing it with sandals not boots. None the less, it works and it made for a perfect weekend ready outfit.
