When you hear the word “suit,” it can sometimes inspire thoughts of dull work-wear. Well, I’m here to tell you that doesn’t have to be the case! Matching blazers and trousers in a fun print can turn an ordinary suit into a full-on fashion look. For my Summer suit, I opted for a bold stripe in a neutral/white combo. I’ve worn this with a black bodysuit underneath (as shown), a plain white tee, and I can’t wait to wear it with a rock n’ roll band tee next. Wear your suit with heels for a more elevated look, or keep it casual with some slides. I threw on my favorite leopard pair, courtesy of J.Crew. What do you dolls think? Would you rock a bold suit for Summer?
Polka dots have never really been my thing. I’m more of a stripes gal. But I have to say….they are starting to grow on me. I saw this champagne skirt with an angled hem and thought it would go perfectly with some favorites I already have in my closet. Neutral sweaters, a black turtleneck, mock neck bodysuit…the list goes on and on.
For our recent trip to Savannah, I had to bring my new skirt along and add in some details to give it some Southern and girly flare. What did I pair my polka dots with? Pink pumps of course. I picked up these famous Manolo Blahnik Hangisi satin pumps that were waiting to be found at Saks Off Fifth. You may recognize these as Carrie’s Wedding Shoes (in blue) in the first Sex & The City movie! Well, While I’m no Carrie Bradshaw, I do absolutely love these pumps that are more versatile than you might initially think. I’ve worn them to work with jeans and a collared shirt and paired them with dresses of equally bright shades.
To finish my Savannah weekend look, I capped it all off with my favorite Eric Javits straw boater, my new Céline (swoon) and classic, cat-eye shades!
If you guys follow along with me on Instagram (which I hope you do!) then you might have seen that I celebrated my 29th birthday recently! My idea of celebrating was taking my annual trip to the Hamptons to spend time with my best friends. This year was a little different not living in New York, so we spent a couple days in the city catching up with old co-workers, friends, and visiting some of our favorite New York restaurants. I have to be honest – it was the first time I passed our old home since we moved and it made me a little emotional. But, I’m happy to say that I feel lucky to still have a connection to the city and the ability to visit friends often.
One of the big differences from New York to Atlanta – summer in the city! While the heat down South is brutal, you often don’t feel it going from an air conditioned building straight to a car. That’s not the case in New York where you wander the streets and can really feel the heat (don’t even get me started on the subway).
On a morning where we strolled through the West Village and then headed to Soho House, I felt a short, white sundress was perfect for the occasion and the best way to beat the heat! I love the colorful and cute embroidered design, but what I really loved was the price! Can you believe this dress is less than $25? I finished my look with my go-to Summer hat and summery espadrilles that also happen to be on sale. Make sure to check the links below for details!
