I love this tulip hem maxi dress. I’m not usually very big on maxi dresses as they end up just making me look big, but I think the sheer tulip hem adds a special (non frumpy) touch which makes it a lot more appealing. I stumbled upon it while doing a little afternoon online shopping, and immediately added it to my cart when I saw that it was only $42. I really love this blue pattern…
Annd, weekend! I’m so happy as I am headed to New Jersey for the night for my cousin Kate’s wedding. Family weddings are my favorite thing in the world as they put us all in one place and we just have the. best. time. ever. This was a good week. I had two really fun dinners… the first at Charlie Bird and the second at Santina!
I spotted this floral eyelet dress on my friend Fran’s site (check out her site, she’s one of my faves!) a few weeks ago and ordered it immediately. I’m really trying to be a little better about dressing for my body type and all that, and this silhouette is a good one for me. A short (but not cap) sleeve, a flattering a-line silhouette, and a not-too-deep v-neck. Did I mention it’s on sale?
Ever notice how some girls appear to be effortlessly glowing? They don’t look “done,” or like they’re even wearing makeup… just glowy and pretty and natural… like they just got back from vacation or spent an afternoon napping in the park. I had this glow for about two minutes upon returning from the Dominican Republic, and then my glow promptly went away.
This is kinda weird, but the fourth of July is one of my favorite occasions to get dressed for. Stripes are (obviously) my favorite, but I’ve also always had a thing for stars, too. And at least 75% of my wardrobe is either red, white, or blue, so there’s that.
Jussst dropping in with very some good news… for two days only (today through Thursday at midnight!) Shopbop is offering an extra 25% off of all sale merchandise. Just enter code 25MORE at checkout. I always raid the “new to sale” section first to grab the stuff that’s just been marked down, but this afternoon I thought I’d round up all of my favorites for you.
