Shine Bright

Last week my bestie Mason and I ventured down the street to the J.Crew grand opening event at West Village. The store is beyond gorgeous, as were all the amazing fall fashions that lined the perfectly organized shelves. Anddd my never-ending wish list continues to grow...shocker I know.

I finally had the perfect occasion to bust out this beauty of a dress. I ordered this online from Old Navy for less than $20, and I honestly had no idea what I was going to get. To say I was pleasantly surprised, would be a complete understatement. This spaghetti strap shift dress is of a perfectly flowy chiffon, making it an ideal transition piece from season to season. This night I paired it with my go-to lace up Steve Maddens and my super chic oversized tuxedo vest, which I can't wait to wear in head-to-toe winter white. But this piece will also look effortless layered over a white tee or underneath a big cozy sweater. When I pulled this diamond dress from it's shipping prison, I couldn't believe that the subtle little design I loved on my computer screen were actually fully beaded! Such a nice little added touch that makes an outfit truly special.

Goodbye Shorts

I can't seem to manage more than this these days, shorts and loose tops. It's (still) hot, and I'm over it. But thankfully...WE WILL SOON PUT THIS DREADFUL SUMMER WEATHER BEHIND US. The one summer look I will miss is exactly this. Lately I have been all about these shorts. They are the perfect fit and when paired with a nice blouse are perfect for work and plans afterward. I found this shirt while strolling through Macy's one day and immediately fell in love, because's perfect.
