Summer Uniform

today’s closetcast: beating the heat

This is me attempting to stay cool despite sweltering temperatures. This dress by Reformation will definitely be on repeat for the remainder of the summer. The feminine lines and lovely floral print pretty much summed up what my closet was missing. I have been looking for a dress exactly like this – so glad I found it. Now contemplating buying it in black, too. One can never have too many black dresses right?

Desperately Seeking Inspiration…

After a long hiatus from this blog, I’m back! After starting a new career and tending to the wonderful demands of motherhood, I have felt a blank space where I used to post my daily musings and inspiration. Now it’s time to revamp and reboot!

This J. Crew Fall 2015 lookbook was just the ticket. While the collection was first shown in February 2015, now that the end of summer is looming on the horizon, I have to admit I am looking forward to a shift in the weather toward colder temperatures. This may or may not have something to do with the gorgeous looks below…

As always I’m drawn to the bold use of color and texture-play going on that I find as a trademark of J.Crew. I’m especially loving the mixed pattern coat in the last image. Anyone else?

Jenna Lyons, You Win.

today’s closetcast: what bride?

Solange Knowles Marries Alan Ferguson - Wedding Day

Forever a fan of Jenna Lyons. Worn to Solange Knowles’ highly instagrammed New Orleans wedding, this gorgeous look is so hands-down beautiful, I had to come out of the blogging woodwork to do a post about it. While everyone was admiring the bride, here glides in Jenna Lyons in a gorgeous full length feather skirt, crisp white shirt, dreamy fur jacket, and leopard clutch. Wait… what bride? I forgot about her too. I think this look could even work for a modern day, unconventional bride. That skirt is absolute heaven. What do you guys think?

Just a few of my favorite shots from the recent Christian Dior Resort Collection in Brooklyn earlier this week. These tailored pieces make spending time in an office infinitely more glamorous. What’s better? These looks would go easily from day to night. So, that makes them worthy investments, right? RIGHT!
