Summer Whites

On Mommy: Madison Marcus top  |  Theory shorts  |  Steve Madden sandals  |  Celine bag
On A: Target top  |  Gingersnaps skirt  |  Old Navy shoes
In 90 degree heat, there’s nothing better to wear than a crisp and clean, all-white outfit.  I paired this old silk layered top with my little white shorts. Black strappy flat sandals to add contrast and my perfect neutral colored bag to finish off the look.

I was browsing on Shopbop.com and came across several white silk tops. Each so different but beautiful and unique in it’s own way.

From L-R:
A.L.C. Monty top: Simplicity at it’s best.
Parker Cross back top: Tiniest sliver of skin..classy sexy!
Joie Felix top: Closest to my Madison Marcus top
AIR by Alice + Olivia top: Light, fluttery, gorgeous!

What’s your favorite thing to wear on a scorching hot day?

Parker Beaded Dress

Parker Cluster Beaded V-Neck Dress  |  Zara shoes  |  Chanel bag 

Beautiful bride in Monique Lhuillier and A, as the flower girl! 

Aw. This picture would have been perfect if D was there, and A was looking and that door was shut. Okay fine, maybe it’s not that perfect. We had such a blast at the wedding last weekend. Such a beautiful venue and 2 of the nicest people committing their lives to each other. 
I recycled old dresses or rented for all the weddings this year except for this one. I splurged on this Parker dress awhile ago during Shopbop’s friends and family sale and I’m glad I did. I’ve never received so many compliments on anything I’ve ever worn. Girls, guys, and even people on facebook were messaging me asking me about the designer of this dress. 
Because it’s so sparkly and dressy, I also think this dress would work great for a black tie event. I originally ordered the XS and S and both were super, super short. The reviews on Shopbop say the same thing. So, I ended up ordering the M and it still fit and was a more respectable length, albeit still a mini.  If anyone has an event coming up and is in need of a dress, I highly recommend this one!

Poshmark Party

Express skirt  |  Joie top  |  Urban Outfitters sleeveless blazer  |  Zara shoes  |  Chanel bag

I blogged about this skirt here and here. I heard from so many of you who were bummed that it was sold out. Well, you’re in luck! I just checked and the skirt is now back in stock and running a great promo (buy 1, get 1 for $29). Click here and get yours today!!

I was invited by the Poshmark crew to attend the Chicago party last week. The Poshmark girls describe their app as ebay + instagram + facebook. It’s basically a mobile version of ebay where you post and sell your clothes and accessories, all from the comfort of your phone. Genius!

The event was held at J Bar and they were gracious in allowing me to bring along several friends. We enjoyed the complimentary cocktails while mingling with some local bloggers. Thanks Poshmark!


So sorry for the bad quality. This is the only picture that I took at the party that night.

By the way, I’m kind of obsessed with my new sleeveless blazer. Love the over-sized fit and you can throw it over anything to make you look more polished and pulled together.  A regular blazer works too but really, who can wear sleeves in this 90 degree heat?

Oh and I’m selling my neon yellow Cambridge Satchel bag and my Rebecca Minkoff MAC bag on ebay! If anyone’s interested, click here and here!
