Put on Paradise

This summer I may not be traveling to any exotic local, but I can dress like I am.  I can put on a tropical print, flounce my way down to Juice it Up and get a giant Pitaya Sunset Smoothie.  Instantly I am in Aruba with the Beach Boys Kokomo playing in the background relaxing […]

Flounce With Me

I am so happy that ruffles, florals, flounces and feminine dressing in general are making a comeback.  I want to bring back ladylike more formal dressing for day.  I think dressing modestly in beautiful clothes can be very empowering.  I wear clothes that I am excited to put on, that are lovely in fabrication, print […]

East Meets West

Lately there has been a huge Asian influenced trend and I am definitely on board.  I am especially enamored by this Loewe dress from the spring 2017 collection which seems to be sold out everywhere.  I also love this Gucci dress in porcelain print.  Kimono dresses such as this one, this one and this one […]

It’s a Wrap

The biggest trend this season is the ruffle wrap skirt.  I love this trend because in the summer, I don’t really want to wear jeans all the time due to the heat, and I don’t wear really short shorts either.  This leaves me with the options of Bermuda shorts (which rarely look good on me) […]

Jumping into Summer

If you’ve been following me you may have noticed my affinity to gingham, stripes and ruffles.  So imagine my delight when I found this amazing jumpsuit with all three combined!  It was love at first sight, and for under a hundred dollars I couldn’t pass it up.  This MSGM one is currently several times as […]

Hello Yellow!

A color trend that is big this season besides millennial pink is yellow.   I wore this vintage 1950’s dress I bought a few years back to church the other day.  I love the design details at the bust and the ruched statement sleeves which are also trending this season. I also love this Diane […]

Stripes and Shirtdresses

A huge trend this season is the shirtdress, especially in striped printed cotton.  I have added a few shirtdresses to my spring and summer wardrobe because they are so versatile and can be dressed up or down.  They are also lightweight, and thus cool to wear on a hot summer day.  I love striped patterns […]

Mixing Prints with Gingham

The standout print it appears this season is gingham.  It is the quintessential summer fabric, which I am thrilled to wear because it can mix well with so many other prints.  I added a few gingham items to my wardrobe this spring including this skirt and this skirt from Zara.  I have been wearing them […]
