My Wishlist








 


Springtime is finally in full bloom and with are all of those impossibly gorgeous soft shades of nature coming back to life.  Mother Nature showing off shall we say is the inspiration behind today's post and outfit details.  Soft sage, mossy green, buttercup and white come together effortlessly well to create a look that is lovely to wear this spring and summer season.

Let's begin with this blouse.  A basic, short sleeve button down can really take a look to new heights depending upon the cut and color.  I find this one to be absolutely perfect for late spring and summer paired with whites, creams, cognacs and some classic gold jewelry pieces that completely complement the look.

White trousers and cream ones as well are such a necessary option in everyone's closet come springtime.  This pair has really served me quite well this season which we are only a couple of months into.  The high-waisted, tailored styling is so very flattering and easy to wear with so many of the tops and blouses I already own.

Next, I love pair these colors with a slightly different shade but still a neutral and that is this rich, creamy, buttercup sort of a color.  I think these sandals in that color make for such a lovely choice with so many items I will be wearing this summer (dresses, tanks and trousers, shorts and widely pants as well).  

Add in a couple of greige (green/grey/beige) accessories like this Celine bag and these slightly square sunglasses and you are ready for a casual spring or summer day depending on the weather and warmth where you live.

I think that all of you know how much I love my neutrals and stay away from much color for the most part but these pretty spring palettes have really caught my eye.  If you love anything you see here, I've linked most pieces for you to shop below.  I hope everyone is doing well and I will see you on Friday!

Hello and welcome back from the weekend!  Is it just me or does anyone else seem to have an obsession with casual knits that are soft, breathable and absolutely perfect for spring and summertime?  Well, if you do then this post will be one you enjoy for sure.  

Today I'm pairing some of my favorite warm weather knits with classic pieces, like these trousers, to create a simple and chic look that is going to be perfect for all the fun things we hopefully all have planned for the coming weeks and months.

So, this gorgeous cashmere scoop neck sweater is something I would somewhat consider a must-have.  Of course you don't need to spend a ton of money on a summer-weight sort of cashmere like this (there are a lot of more affordable options out there as well as sleeveless options like this one).  But, I just love the way it feels so soft and quite comforting against my skin really all season long.  So for me, it's the first one I reach for most days.  

If you're planning a fun date night of outdoor dining or perhaps a nice brunch and you want a reliable piece to begin with then I do highly recommend this one.  I would go ahead and pair it with a lovely pair of long trousers like this pair from Karen Millen.  I simply love the color combination of soft white and taupe and think that it makes for such a well-done and sophisticated look throughout the summer.  

A bit of cognac in the form of leather (like you'll see here on this sandal and this straw tote)  as well as these gorgeous tortoise shell sunglasses, will tie the entire look together while effortlessly taking the eye the full length of the outfit from top to bottom.   Gold studs are a really nice choice to go with this look especially if you'll be wearing your hair up or in my favorite warm weather style, the low bun.  

I hope this look inspires you to take on some of your favorite pieces for spring/summer and style them in a way that makes you feel your absolute best.  Thanks so much for stopping by...Have a lovely day!

Hello weekend! And hello to all of you!  Now that warmer weather is beginning to show up a bit more and more, outdoor dining and weekend evenings are really going and in hand at the minute.  So, if you and your love have some plans to enjoy a meal somewhere nice together, here are a few ways to look special all while keeping it simple for you.

When it comes to simple dressing, nothing is easier than the dress.  It is truly infamous for being the one and done piece that can take you literally anywhere in style.  These three dresses I've chosen to highlight today will instantly show you why.

So this linen midi dress from Mango immediately caught me eye for a few reasons.  First off, it's a neutral which you all know by now is my favorite color story when it comes to getting dressed.  Along with that, I absolutely love the length and the flattering look of a midi dress.  The flared design and perfect v-neck are also going to be two more features that make this dress quite wearable for a variety of body shapes and styles.  I think this one would be perfect for a nice brunch outdoors coupled with a floppy straw hat, some sunglasses, a simple crossbody bag and a classic pair of tan sandals.

Black button down dresses are another classic staple in my closet for so many reasons.  I really love them because they are an effortless piece and really timeless as well.  You can easily dress this one up a little bit with a nice pair of heeled sandals and some classic gold jewelry for a sunset evening of rooftop cocktails one night.

Finally, I'm really not one to buy a lot of prints but this dress is such a gorgeous Liberty floral pattern that I just couldn't pass it up.  Aside from the pattern, I also love beautiful square neckline and the bit of the puffed shoulder that adds the just right amount of structure to the look.  This one could be dressed up or down depending upon where you need it top take you at the moment.  But, no matter where you might be headed, you will definitely turn a few heads.

So there you have it, three easy yet stunning ways to wear the one and done piece.  I hope you have something wonderfully fun planned for the weekend.  Thank you for starting it here with me!

Spring temperatures have me a bit giddy right now and building warmer weather outfits is always a fun outtake of that.  For today's look, I thought it might be fun to take things to new heights and share with you a classic way to style the tailored short.

If you know me at all then you likely know that I am rather particular when it comes to this summer favorite of some.  Not all that many pairs make the cut, however.  Lately, I'm favoring the high-waisted tailored styles that are going to be appropriate for pretty much anywhere you find yourself going.  It is, however, important to remember a few key details when it comes to putting the look together and creating a really well-worn outfit.

So length is, of course, a huge consideration when it comes to where you can appropriately get away with a short outfit.  This pair hits perfectly as it is just a bit above the knee and is easy to style in just so many ways. I also think that the color of this pair is quite the perfect neutral giving you such a good number of outfit options.

Putting them with this lovely little top allows for the start of a rather summery look that you can in a number of directions.  I love that it is made of organic cotton and think that it works just so nicely with a lot of high-waisted options which I love.

Now, with the weather still be a bit fickle at times, I'm always sure to take a smart jacket along with me in case I need just a little bit of warmth.  The black blazer is the perfect piece to pair here as it is just so flattering on everyone and will easily elevate nearly everything you may be wearing on the bottom.  

A classic pair of flats (love these here) and some gold jewelryy perfectly complement the look while a dark pair of sunglasses and daintier woven clutch so beautifully finish it off.  This is what I call taking your neutrals on holiday.  Easy and effortless much like any good look should be.

Hopefully, this will give your shorts some new life as it is a an added way to style a classic piece.  Enjoy everyone!

Hello everyone and welcome back from the weekend.  I hope you all enjoy a lovely two days off and are ready to begin the week now with a smile.  So I suppose right now, it's all about the dress.  And, of course,  I don't mean the dress in a fussy way as none of us are ever likely to revisit that sort of dressing ever again.  Rather, the dress meaning the easiest, chicest piece that captures all of the classic and timeless elements that all wardrobe staples should really embody.

I went with the black for today's look as I feel it is a welcome change from the barrage of white and cream that we are all about to be seeing from this minute onward.  I do love a lot of white in my spring and summer wardrobe, however, this unexpected diversion is really quite nice.  

There's so much to enjoy about this particular dress that I'm not quite sure where to begin.  The flattering tiered skirting and gorgeous neckline look so very nice together with just the slightest bit of feminine detailing.  It has a very easy fit and could easily be something you style casually or in a more elevated style depending upon where you are going.

I went for a more relaxed look here today by pairing these iconic Hermès sandals with it while lightening the look with a bit of white which I love in the warmer weather.  A straw tote is another item I find myself wearing a lot in spring/summer as it is such a versatile piece that works really well with so many looks right now.

I love my gold jewelry and think that these hoops would pair perfectly with this outfit.  A dark pair of sunglasses keep everything looking a bit mysterious and a delicate hair tie gets your hair to behave on the warmest of days.

Don't forget the indispensable need for a smart blazer to keep you comfortable on those nights when the air may carry a bit of a slight chill.  And there you have it...a perfect way to enjoy the warmer days (and nights) ahead.

I hope you, as always, found something to love here.  In case you have, I've linked all the pieces mentioned in the thumbnails below.  Happy dressing up!
