Summer in White

We were back in our old ‘hood this weekend. Hannah loved NYC because everyone on the street gave her so much attention. She smiled and waved at every person that walked by her stroller. Of course, everyone waved back so she was in attention heaven. Skirt: H&M (similar) | Top: Humble Chic| Shoes: Kate Spade (love these) In other news, check out my latest story on MODE! It’s all about why you should always buy your kid’s clothing second hand.

It’s So Hot

It is SO HOT! I am talking humid and sticky and sweaty. I love summer, but my armpits do not. I love this romper from Humble Chic. It isn’t something I would usually pick out for myself, but it is perfect for summer. It is so light and airy and flowy. Also, the fact that it is pants and not a dress makes kid-caused wardrobe malfunctions less likely. Dress: Humble Chic | Shoes: Nine West (Similar) | Bag: Humble Chic

Here Comes The Sun

It has been a really tough few days here in the USA. I don’t usually talk about politics or social issues here because this is a fashion blog, it’s not exactly heavy hitting stuff. But I do want to say a few things. I think in times like these, compassion is so important. Compassion and the ability to understand and acknowledge your position of privilege. If you read this blog, you are likely a person who enjoys a relatively high degree of privilege. No, you aren’t a millionaire — but privilege isn’t always about extreme wealth. You are privileged because you […]

Little White Dress

I wore this dress to my rehearsal dinner. It was my first (and ended up being my last) exploration into buying vintage. I love this dress, but vintage clothes are kind of difficult. First, they are expensive. Then you have to take them to a tailor and get the hemlines taken up, the bust taken in, the straps reworked, and you always have to get them professionally cleaned. So you end up spending another $100 or so on the piece depending on how much ‘work’ needs to be done. Also, you never really get that musty smell out of vintage clothes. Anyway, this dress had been […]

Totally 90’s

I heard the 90’s are back. Hello chokers, grunge, and iridescent makeup! I decided to fully commit to this trend resurgence and dress exactly like a 90’s R&B pop princess (RIP, Aliyah *cue tears*). You can get away with this look when it is 100% humidity and 98° (pun intended) outside. Otherwise, you might be cold with this level of cropped-ness. Do you think 90’s pop princesses were always cold? Or were they warmed by their abundance of Benjamins? Shoes: New Balance | Jeans: J. Crew Factory | Top: Nasty Gal (old, but want this) | Sunnies: I think Amazon, […]

Summer Lovin’

Summer is my favorite season because I can leave the house without fear. In the winter, I spend the entire time hoping I will be warm enough when I get outside and dreading that first blast of cold air. I always feel an immense sense of relief when I get outside and I am automatically warm. Also, I get annoyed by those little belt loops on dresses. This dress has them. It’s like, don’t tell me what to do, dress! Maybe I don’t want to wear a dumb belt. Shoes: Sweetest Stitch | Dress: Banana Republic (love this one)

Purple Swag

I’ve worn this dress before on the blog, but I never liked the way the light looked. It seemed like anytime I wore this dress it was either dark out (because, I mean, it IS more of an evening dress). Or it started to rain so we had to shoot inside. But I finally got the chance to shoot it properly! This is one of my favorite fancy dresses. This dress is also pretty easy to wear as a top if you pair it with a midi skirt. Shoes: Kate Spade (love these)| Dress: Asos (I am obsessed with this)

Five Cute Sundresses Under $50

Fact: You don’t need to spend a lot to look amazing. Here’s proof. I have to start with a black dress because I have such a hard time resisting them. This dress is a little more than $30 and is perfect to wear basically every day this summer. A flowy beautiful maxi dress for $30? Yes, girl! I love this dress because you could dress it up or down. Are you dying to try the off-the-shoulder trend without spending a lot of money? This dress is so cute and is only $38. I love the cut of this dress. It […]

The Many-Faced Skirt

I am not sure if you watch Game of Thrones, but this skirt reminds me of The Many-Faced God except not so dark, and also cute instead of scary and weird. I got this entire look from a new online obsession called Oliver’s Attic. If you love a good summer party dress and/or an adorable full skirt this shop is absolutely for you. Everything is so unique, it was hard to pick a favorite piece! Skirt: Oliver’s Attic | Shirt: Oliver’s Attic | Shoes: Old, but these are similar

Brunch at the Theater

A theater in the area has recently transformed into a yummy restaurant. The best part — it’s child friendly so Hannah can live her best life without getting any side-eye from the baby haters. Shoes: Asos (old, but love these) | Skirt: Club Monaco (old, but this one is so cute) | Top: Sincerely Sweet Boutique
