lazy days

As summer nears its final weeks I find myself trying to capitalize on every drop of summer freedom I can get. That means breaking out all my sun dresses and heading outdoors for some adventuring. This is one of my all time favorite dresses from Free People. I simply adore the timeless cut and floral and dot pattern. To get a little bit of a Western look I paired it with my favorite pair of lace-ups. 
Happy Summer!

Spotlight: Pouches

It's always tough trying to settle on the perfect bag for the day and whether or not you are the lucky owner of this season's It Bag, it's always a relief when a simple, blank canvas of a bag springs forth from the depths of the design houses. It's especially nice when said bag comes in a variety of colors, prints, and textures. Conveniently, this season Comme de Garcon has created a plethora of zippered pouches. They're perfect transitional pieces for any wardrobe and are all under $200. 

I haven't had a chance to purchase one myself, but I did find a lovely substitute in this Tory Burch wristlet!

oh, marc!

I hate to say it, but the functionality of deathly high heels is often questionable. Now, that's not saying I don't have a weak spot for a great pair of heels, but sometimes your feet just need a break! The problem is that a lot of people struggle with finding shoes that maintain the chic factor while losing the heel. For that reason, I am so excited about owning these Marc Jacob mini pumps! Comfy and cute, seriously, it doesn't get better than that.

brush it off

I had such a blast shooting this outfit with my friend, A, yesterday. I'm definitely indulging my not so secret obsession with retro clothing. Sometimes all you need is a good pair of disco pants and a peasant top. Bowl hats don't hurt either. Personally, I'm, not really one for chiffon, but somehow this shirt has caught my fancy. You know what they say, there's a first time for everything.
