I am alll about a laid-back look lately. I love the juxtaposition of leather and distressed denim… and these camo Birks? Pretty amazing.
Lately, I’m all about easy, wearable pieces that don’t require much attention—a comfy printed tee, loose-fitting pants and maybe a denim vest for good measure. Oh—and flats! I’m normally such a heel girl but sometimes you just gotta give your dogs a break.

I love juxtaposition in everything, including housewares (sheepskin mixed with lucite, wood mixed with fine china) and fashion. This is my interpretation of a fancy-on top, casual-on-the-bottom sort of look—one that works for cocktails or a nice dinner out. This bustier is pretty amazing (despite the fact that I can’t exactly breathe when I wear it) and I can’t wait to pair it with something simple, like a black pencil skirt.
I recently updated my boutique with a few of the items I’m currently loving. Here’s a run-down…
Black never goes out of style. It’s slimming, forgiving and usually hides stains and damage pretty well. I especially like pairing an all black ensemble with a bold red lip. Case in point: this outfit. I wore a black silk shirtdress by Kain as a strapless dress (just put your arms and shoulders through the head hole, button it to the top, and tie the sleeves in front—you can do it with pretty much any button-up top or dress), threw on my favorite old cardigan and sandals, and slicked on some NARS Heat Wave.
A perfectly girly mixtape to take you through Tuesday…
Something about the warmer temperatures (and by warmer I mean 90+) makes me want to wear all of my brightest pieces. I got this adorable Rory Beca tank recently and thought it was the perfect thing to wear with a circle skirt and cute sandals.
It’s no secret that checks are having a major moment lately—they’re showing up on everything lately. When I spotted this bustier online, I snapped it up immediately. I love the shape, which works best when paired with simple—even distressed or jeans or slacks, and the pattern is an added benefit.
I scored this cute Joie dress at Marshall’s last week (originally $268, on clearance for $39) and wore it the very next day. It’s silk, so it would be a nice option for a daytime Spring or Summer wedding. I wore it with some old Louboutin espadrilles, retro-inspired shades and a slick of pink lipstick.

If it wasn’t clear from yesterday’s post, I’m all about a romper lately. Easy to throw on, comfortable and always a little eye-catching, thanks to the unique shapes available today. I love this little number from MSGM—such a great pattern. And how great is this Proenza Schouler clutch? It’s fun but, thanks to the black and white color palette, would go with just about anything. Plus, majorly discounted right now (huge bonus!)
