Stole my title from the name of this dress… it is aptly named, though, wouldn’t you say? With this heat wave in Boston, the only sensible thing to wear is sandals and an easy summer-dress – I love the pretty print on this one, don’t you?
This dress reminds me of one of my favorite fashion moments in movie history… the polo scene in Pretty Woman, when Julia Roberts is wearing that brown and white polka-dot dress, cinched with a belt, and a straw hat. And, of course, I get confused for Julia Roberts all.the.time
in my dreams. Now all I need is a silver fox/billionaire to woo me and take me to polo matches… What are some of your favorite fashion moments in movies?
Wearing – Equipment dress (last seen here), Steve Madden sandals (similar), vintage belt and necklace, gifted cuff, BaubleBar beaded bracelet, gifted Alex+Ani gold bracelet, Anthropologie earrings (old)
I’m not usually a shorts girl but when I saw this sweet take on denim cut-offs, I couldn’t say no. The slightly higher waist and pretty, floral print adds a little extra polish that my regular jean shorts don’t have. I kept it casual this weekend by pairing them with a basic tee and braided belt, but stay tuned for a dressed-up look!
Wearing – Paige Denim shorts, H&M tee (similar), LOFT anorak (old, love this version), Nine West wedges (old, lusting over these), Ray-Ban sunnies, BaubleBar bracelet, Alex + Ani bracelet (gifted), wrap watch (similar), vintage and Gorjana rings (here and here)
I can just hear my dear Mother saying “You need a belt with that” and normally, I would totally agree. However, the asymmetry of this Michael Kors dress creates better angles which allow me to get away with not wearing a belt. Plus, every once and a while, you just feel like throwing on a potato-sack dress with some great accessories and calling it a day…. And this was one of those times. (Sorry, Mom)
P.S. I’m totally loving this new City of Boston view as a backdrop for my photos – aren’t you?
(bangs need a trim, eh?)
Forgive my absence from the blogosphere – I’ve been busy figuring out my new job and my new city of Boston, with little time to update my site… But I’m back, and here is a weekend look that took me to Newbury Street for a leisurely walk and smoothies with the manfriend. You really can’t go wrong with a comfy striped top, jeans, and a broken-in pair of loafers. What’s your go-to weekend casual?
Wearing – Lucky Brand jeans (similar), J. Crew sweatshirt (love this similar top), Steve Madden loafers (similar), Kenneth Cole bag (gift), Gorjana rings (here and here), Michael Kors watch, Presh bracelet, BaubleBar bracelet, and straw fedora (last seen here).
The temps rose dramatically in NYC the past couple of days… a brief tantalizing whiff of Spring, before January remembers her place on the Northeast climate spectrum. Tempted by the weather (or so I’m justifying it to myself), I added a couple Springtime pieces to my closet that I’m so eager to wear! Here are some newbies, plus some coveted items for Spring and where to get them:
1. Something floral, See by Chloe (similar) 2. White Trousers, Balmain, 3. Statement Necklace, BaubleBar (similar), 4. Bright scarf, Banana Republic, 5. Ice Blue Crop, Tibi, 6. Something mint, Steve Madden, 7. Pleated skirt, Steffen Schraut
