Summer is back, and with it, the opportunity to discard your heavy wool dresses and replace them with something lighter and flirtier. The best summer dresses are feminine, yet practical — and easy to transition from day to night. This summer, take your style up a notch with one of these must-have dresses:
Alice + Olivia Mini Dress
Nothing says summer like a sunshiney mini dress. This cute number from Alice + Olivia has an appealingly feminine shape capable of flattering any body type. Its marigold and white guipure lace features a chic floral design. Pair with casual sandals and show this fun and flirty outfit off at your next garden party.
Dolce & Gabbana Floral Dress
Take your summer look retro with this adorable poplin dress. Made in Italy, the Dolce & Gabbana number is the epitome of style and class. Its halterneck style and A-line profile accentuate your waist, and its floral design is fresh and feminine. Complete the look with a stylish pair of shades and your favorite wedge sandals.
Lisa Marie Fernandez Gingham Shirt Dress
Elegant, yet casual, this gorgeous gingham dress from Lisa Marie Fernandez features rolled cuffs, an A-line silhouette, and a waist-defining sash. The dress does all the talking, so keep everything else understated with a pair of low-heeled sandals and a simple straw hat.
Chloé Cotton Mini Dress
Keep cool in this lightweight mini dress, which features a blue and off-white bandana pattern that will immediately take you back to those carefree childhood days of summer. The cotton dress slips on and off easily, making it the perfect cover-up for an afternoon party by the pool. Need a little more coverage? Pair your favorite mini with an embroidered denim jacket from M.i.h. Jeans
Tori Burch Maxi Dress
It may be hot and sticky outside, but that doesn’t mean you need to show every inch of skin. If you prefer to remain covered up, add this lovely silk dress to your wardrobe. Adorned with a sophisticated leaf motif, this chic maxi will quickly become your summer go-to for everything from casual luncheons to lively nights out on the town.
Valentino See Through Clutch Bag for Spring so GORGEOUS and light weight you will find yourself using it daily. I like the rockstud idea for the bag for Valentino, but something about this Valentino PVC rockstud clutch bag makes it just so special. Sort of like that Hermes special addition PVC Birkin they did in 1999. This is a special bag that you will want to have in your collection. Wear this bag with all the floral ladylike collections for spring. Shown here shot by Phil Oh – street style photographer extraordinaire who captured these moments so beautifully. Get the Valentino PVC clutch for $1795 here now.
My favorite Tory Burch dress for Spring is the Tory Burch Whitney dress from the runwayÂ in Turquoise blue of course. I love turquoise for summer and this beautiful Tory Burch dress is my pick for any of your spring or summer weddings or events.
This ladylike design is crafted of delicate silk chiffon with a guipure lace overlay thatâ€™s been lightly screen-printed in a soft shade of turquoise for a subtle artisanal touch. A sheer neckline and easy, straight fit means this feminine style is both figure-flattering and unfussy.
Marc Jacobs did one of the best shows of his career for Fall 2013 at New York Fashion Week. My favorite looks were all about the fur that we saw on the runway this whole New York Fashion Week. My favorite was the short sleeve fur jacket and the fur straight skirt. The furry ensemble was to die for. IT was a whole Mad Men throwback look that got me thinking “why can’t it always be like this?”
Ready or not, Fall 2013 is coming. Preorder before it is all gone.
If there is one pair of flats you will want to buy this season, I say buy the Chloe black ballerina flats.
Why? Here is why – they are super flattering, you can wear them with a dress or a pair of capri pants and you will be comfortable and look as graceful as a ballerina this Spring.
After seeing Clover Canyon’s New York Fashion Week Runway show, I have been coveting this very comfortable nubuck pair of ballerina flats from Chloe. Â Great staple for Spring into summer and early Fall 2013.
IF there is one bag that I am still obsessed with it is the Tom Ford Jennifer bag in black in the large size.
IT is the IT bag that has been seen on Jennifer Aniston and named after her, but now it was spotted on Abby from Scandal in this week’s episode.
The bag has a zip compartment at the shoulder strap which reveals a mirror when unzipped and a flap that can be unzipped to hold some essentials to separate from the main compartment. The vedome calfskin is sturdy, scratch resistant and supple. It is a great every day bag.
If you are thinking about spring break or that vacation to Hawaii or the Bahamas in February when others are doing ski week, think about getting these amazing tan colored Rebecca Minkoff Bettina sandals. They are gorgeous and comfortable with a very simple design that can be worn with that striped nautical dress by Soft Joie, or those white shorts with your white button up shirt. Think of this pair of sandals as your work horse sandals for the whole spring and summer season. It is a great neutral color that can look like a nude sandal when you are tanned. Nude sandals are still very big for Spring as you probably have seen from everyone especially Tory Burch. So take a hint and check these out for the warm weather.
Rebecca Minkoff Betinna Flat Sandals in tan are $165.
Want another option – K. Jacques also makes a great tan sandal for summer. Great for those of you who are going to Europe.
I wore these yesterday while at the Beverly Hills Hotel for lunch with a friend. They were super comfy.
Guess she wants to make sure to stay in shape during her pregnancy so she can bounce back into shape as soon as the baby is born. This is the right attitude since people who do not workout during their pregnancies have a harder time getting back into shape after their pregnancies.
Both of her Nike sneakers are my favorite new running sneakers that have softer rubber soles. I got a pair in the lilac and really love them. Here is a pair I own in the lilac with green laces.
If you like the lilac Nike Free 4.0 Sneakers seen below get them for $90 here.
Are you cold yet? If you have been telling yourself all winter long that you do not need a puffer jacket or that it is not that cold out, now is the time to decide that YES it is cold and it is time to buy a winter jacket. Among my favorite puffer jackets are the ones made by Moncler. I love Moncler not because they are a favorite brand of celebrities like Reese WitherspoonÂ wore one on the set of This Means War with a fur hood, Victoria Beckham wore a Moncler jacket in yellow, Elle Macpherson, and others but because they make high quality beautifully styled coats and jackets for the whole family. IF there is a company that knows how to make a warm winter coat Moncler is definitely that company.
Seen here Elle Macpherson is wearing her puffer jacket by Moncler with a hoodie and workout clothing. Kelly Ripa was seen recently going to Soul Cycle in New York City wearing her Moncler puffer jacket to brave the New York City winds. I get it, I am from the East Coast it gets cold. This winter in Los Angeles, it has been pretty cold as well. We have had some strange in between 90 degree days, but looks like we should be expecting more rain and snow in the mountains until at least March of this year.
If you are planning on going to Big Bear, Mammoth, Mountain High, or Tahoe to go skiing this ski season definitely invest in a warm down puffer coat or jacket from Moncler. You will look great apres ski and you will be super warm as well. Some of my favorites are the ones that they have with the fur hoods. Not just for looks, the fur hoods keep you very warm as well.
One of the prettiest Moncler puffer coats I have seen this season is the puffer with a fur hood in beige. By far my favorite and definitely one of the ones that will keep more of your body warm. Check it out here.
Don’t tell me you have not thought about it. I sure have and I am thinking about getting one. How many hours do you spend at your desk daily? Do you feel like you are spending tons of time at your desk and getting fat? Is your blogging job killing your New Year’s resolution?
After adopting a walk more mentality and spending more time walking with my dog I still have those days where I am just unable to fit in the time to get in that hour of exercise being sitting down at my desk between traveling to events, meetings, and picking up my daughter at school.
My sister suggested this to me and I think it is a great idea. Forget about whistling while you work how about just burning calories and losing weight while you work? I like that idea.
TheÂ TrekDesk Treadmill DeskÂ $528.88 on sale. It is definitely a no brainer since it is probably a write off as a work expense. It is a desk after all…
