Jumpsuits have become my thing in recent years, and I’ve got one for each occasion. I have a casual look that I wear to work, a long-sleeve to dress up and down, and even a strapless that I throw on for date nights.

 

So when my best friend was getting married this Fall, I knew that I wanted to rock a more formal jumpsuit that could be dressed up with accessories. I found this Halston number with an asymmetrical, draped neckline and wide legs. I love that this classic silhouette that has touches of drama – the exaggerated sleeve and the sash hanging at the waist are details that I can’t get enough of.

 

I felt like a sophisticated 70’s lady and potential Charlie’s Angel wannabe. Besides rocking this to my friend’s rehearsal dinner, I also repurposed it for a night out in Dublin, Ireland. With geometric earrings (the price tag will wow you) and a vintage bag – my 70’s look was complete! And just like that…this jumpsuit jumps to the top of my list of fall favorites!

Let me start by saying, summer in Florida is no joke. The heat is a killer! So on my recent visit home to Jacksonville, I was sure to pack breezy dresses and shorts for during the day. Honestly, I have a love/hate relationship with shorts – because I feel like my body type doesn’t naturally lend itself to feeling flattered in them. However, on a recent Zara trip, I uncovered this high-waisted and not-too-type pair of navy lace shorts.

 

Because of the fit, I thought they would look cute with an oversized breezy white shirt which I picked up from H&M. I finished my look with my favorite espadrilles, gifted from Patricia Green! Seriously…I have them in cream, orange and the navy. They’re so comfortable and cute! Lastly, I added a touch of glam to my outfit with a gorgeous pair of earrings from Lele Sadoughi. I’m obsessed with her fun and whimsical designs that can easily elevate an outfit. The great thing about her styles is that they can be paired with casual looks like this, or add color to a more dressed-up style. You’ll see me rocking them all Summer!

White jeans are an absolute must have for Summer. And maybe I’m jumping the gun, but I’m wearing mine a little bit early now that Spring has Sprung.  On our recent trip home, Jason and I hit some of my favorite hot spots in the city for dinner and drinks. And what better to wear out in Florida than white jeans and a fun blouse.

 

In addition to white being a warm-weather staple, I love pairing it with navy! This top by Leith has flirty cutouts and an on-trend ruffle.  In this top, I feel like I’m on my way to my very own fiesta.  Plus, I paired the look with pom sandals that remind me of my favorite Aquazzura heels, but at a fraction of the cost!
