Street Style Inspired: White Jumpsuites

I've long been a fan of jumpsuits - they are just as easy as dresses but a bit more unexpected - and at the moment I'm craving a white jumpsuit to add to my summer wardrobe. Worn with sleek pumps or metallic flats, daytime or night, a white jumpsuit is the sexy and wiser older sister of the LWD (little white dress).

Save vs. Splurge: Leather Espadrilles

Espadrilles have long been a summer shoe staple, and this year a bevy of leather espadrilles are taking center stage. The leather elevates the traditionally canvas form to a chic flat that. From studded splurges to simple saves, below are my favorite black leather espadrilles of the season. 

Platinum: Saint Laurant $495; Gold: Rag & Bone $275; Silver: Jeffrey Campbell $135; Bronze: San Edelman $70 

Leather elevates the traditionally canvas espadrille form to a chic flat that looks equally great with a shift dress and jean cut offs. I have the beige and black version of the above Jeffrey Campbell leather espadrilles which I love, but my fickle heart is yearning for these tangerine flats as well. Luckily this summer shoe trend is easier to save on than to splurge on. Happy shopping!

Wedding 101: Dazzling Details Wedding Design


If you don't know already from my past posts I have big news - I'm getting married in a couple weeks! For those of you who thought I dropped off the face of the planet, have no fear, after the wedding I will be back to my normal blogging:).

Today I'm so excited to share my wedding design inspiration board from my wedding planners, The Dazzling Details. Blaine and I are having a small wedding at a beach side Puerto Vallarta villa and the vibe is 'unique beach chic'. The picture of the alter and the seating area in the collage is actually from our very own wedding location! 

From random chandeliers to sea urchin place card holders, I can't wait to see what The Dazzling Details has in store for our big day. Viva la Mexico!

Label Lust - ALEXIS

Alexis spring fashion

It's pretty hard not to fall in love with a fashion brand that features giraffes and elephants next to faniciful yet wearable fashion creations in its' campaign. Such is the case with Miami based brand, Alexis. The line is equal parts global chic and fashion forward city gal, and they aptly named the spring/summer '14 campaign "Endless Journey."

Alexis' white dresses and lace tops are pure perfection and the lively saturated blues, oranges, greens, pinks and prints can't be ignored either. Just have a peak at a small sampling of the Alexis spring/summer '14 collection below and try not to fall into label lust, I dare you;)
