Two Pieces, Three Ways: Look One

matching crop top and skirtI got this rad cropped top/skirt set (yes, I have a problem) from Express. I bought it because it was just too fun to pass up, but there are also so many different ways to style it. I decided to share three of these looks on the blog this week.

This is look one. Honestly, this isn’t super wearable for every day. But it is perfect for a fancy beach outting or summer date.

Surfin’ USA

surfboard sweater and orange shortsI agonized over whether to call this post ‘surfbort’ or ‘surfin’ USA’. In the end, the Beach Boys won over Beyonce because I felt that the Beach Boys meshed better with this all-America ‘fit.

Yes, blog titles are something to agonize over. Developing appropriate titles is a legitimate concern, peeps.

Find the Perfect ‘Throw-On’ Dress

red dress.jpgIt’s officially summer — which means it’s time to invest in a new ‘throw-on dress’ aka, the perfect instaoutfit you can just toss on and head out the door. Luckily, I am in the market for a new throw-on dress myself so I made a list of ten I have my eye on:

  1. Flowy, floral, and fab — I am obsessed with this one.
  2. This mint number is perfect for endless beach weekends.
  3. Put. A. Bird. On. It. ‘Nuff said.
  4. If a maxi is more your style, this one is perfect.
  5. These stripes are impossible to resist and perfect for any occasion.
  6. A little black dress that you could wear every day.
  7. A swing dress is a must-have for the season.
  8. Is it summer without Lily? This dress is affordable, colorful and easy to wear.
  9. This dress is one you’re sure to wear to any and every summer occasion.
  10. This last dress is light, airy and will totally turn heads.

Happy shopping!

Summer Weekends

cropped top full skirtIt’s finally summer in NYC! Can I get a ‘woot woot!!’? Summer weather means loooong walks in the hot sun. I think we all know that crop tops are a new favorite of mine, but Keds are also coming in handy. No blistery feet for this gal!

I haven’t done one of these in sooo long! Here’s what I’m up to.

 wearing: These red sweatpants from AE, an Old Navy tee, some socks that don’t match. Don’t judge. This is a judge-free zone, y’all.
 listening: Fancy by Iggy Azalea, which is ironic given the above response.
 reading: The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. It’s pretty good so far.
 watching: Season Two of House of Cards. I realize I am really late on this.
 doing: Not much today because I think I have a cold. Boo. I am trying to ignore it so it goes away.
 loving: This weather and the fact that the trees finally have leaves! Huzzah!!
 hating: The fact that I think I just used my last tea bag. I realize this is a First World Problem, but it is still a tragedy.
 wishing: Hmm, I am actually not wishing for anything. I am pretty content.
 wanting: This skirt, please.

What about you, lovelies?

My Favorite Looks from 2013

2013 was a really great year for Clarabelle. I have all of you to thank for that, as well as my dear husband who is just the greatest photographer in the whole world.

Here are some of my favorite looks from 2013. I want to emphasize the word some because it was really hard to choose just twelve. I like all of the looks!

I’m blue

chambray topIn the wise words of Tobias Fünke, “I’m afraid I just blue myself.”

Sometimes, a girl just has to own wearing blue from head to toe.
