Oversized Favorites.

Today I paired my favorite with a few of my other favorite things… this flocked lace dress (from my FAVE line… Sea), and my patent leather Repetto ballet flats. Voila: easy summer ensemble. The texture of this dress is amazing… it’s hard to tell from the photos but it’s a structured flocked lace. It’s great now, but I can’t wait to wear it with tights + a little leather jacket when the weather cools of

Tulip Hem Maxi Dress.

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

Floral Eyelet Dress.

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?

No Side Effects. (Giveaway has Ended.)

Today, we are actually going to talk about bras. Now that it’s officially sleeveless season, there’s yet another thing we have to worry about… sleevage. You know, that pesky under arm bulge that can pop up over your bra. Or we could just call it what it is… armpit fat. Oof.

White Scalloped Dress.

I bought this dress at Club Monaco this past September to wear to my birthday party. It’s one of those pieces that reminds me why I love shopping there so much (besides the fact that the one on 5th Ave has a coffee shop + Strand bookstore inside… I can never resist!) Their pieces always fit me really well, and their simple + timeless. I never end up with buyer’s remorse.

The Best Basics.

Here’s a little confession. Sometimes, as bloggers, we feel all this pressure to make sure our outfits are super interesting and exciting. And those casual outfits that you live in don’t always feel like they are good enough or “blog-worthy.” But that’s rather silly. The best part of blogs, after all, is that they’re real… an accurate depiction of what the blogger actually wore that day.
