For: Best Dressed Wedding Guest

Part 2 of my “what to wear where” series is weddings. As do a lot of other people in their mid 20’s, I have a lot of weddings to attend this summer. So here are 2 very different options, (if the internet were our closet) but really I’d like you to consider purchasing all of “black tie wedding” because holy shit that looks good.  After you leave I’m pretty sure family members of the bride and groom will be referring to you as “sophisticated” which will help people overlook that fact that you may have drank too much at the reception. Happy Friday!

Outfit 1: Dress, Blazer, Cuff, Pumps

Outfit 2: Dress, Shoes, Sunglasses, Clutch, Watch, Bracelet




I stumbled upon this link today on Cupcakes and Cashmere and thought it was worth sharing on here as well- I doubt it’s just me with the Audrey obsession. She is just so darn cute! Happy Thursday!


For: Ladies Who Lunch





This is the first of a few posts that are based around the activities and events that summer usually provides. Today a little outfit inspiration for all the lady lunch dates you have planned with your girlfriends!  Happy Wednesday! More to come later this week!

Banana Leaf Print Top, Shoes, Boyfriends Jeans, Necklace, Watch, Clutch (so cute!!)

Ripped Denim= Everything

Did you think Rachel Zoe was guest posting today? Tricked ya, only me here! But really, this is the first of probably many posts that will revolve around ripped denim because currently it is all that I can think about. I love the simple styling of the outfit on the right, and this lighter denim Zara version I found online (if only the internet were really my closet) would be so perfect for summer.

Chaos To Couture

My Monday night came to an end much like many other fashion lovers out there- with a string of phone calls and texts to my sister to discuss each celeb’s sartorially choice for the Met Gala as their photos surfaced online. I had met a girlfriend for dinner and drinks after work and then ran multiple errands which meant that I arrived home much later than usual and had missed the beginning of the photos, but my sister was on the phone reassuring me that I would love Nicole, Cameron, SJP- the usual roundup for me, and of course she was right. But then again it was the Met so you really can’t hate any of it. The extremity of it all is really the best part. Below are a few snippets from said phone calls & texts:

“If the theme this year was “look like an impossibly gorgeous angel unicorn goddess” instead of “punk” than obviously Blake lively won again.”

“Ivanka Trump is a mermaid”

“Rooney Mara looks exactly like Rooney Mara”

“Kim K has no hands”

“This bi*ch makes me want to throw up!! #bestdressed #2013metgala @nicolerichie”

Ok ok that last one was actually Rihanna, but I didn’t want to assume that you actually cared at all about what my sister and I discussed last night on the phone- but if you do care here are some of our faves from the evening… Who was on your “Best Dressed” list? Please share!
