Vintage Lace Maxi

Dolce Vita Rayan white mint embroidery lace maxi dress and Kate Spade Holly Street Ashton giverny blue and DVF wooden wedge tied sandals and Oliver Peoples Annaliesse cat eye sunglassesI couldn’t possibly look summer in the eye without doing a maxi post.  It’s a quintessential piece of any summer wardrobe which is chic, comfortable, and flattering on all body types.  What’s there not to love, right?  Well, I do love everything about maxi dresses, except usually from a distance.  For one clumsy reason:  I seem to trip over all the material!

So far, this Dolce Vita dress has been a pleasant exception.  Probably because it’s shorter than most of the maxi dresses in my closet decreasing that potential of me tripping over the material.  Whatever the reason, I’m excited about it because I adore this vintage looking lace!

Happy Wednesday! xo

Go Green

DSC_4615_2I’m not Irish.  Bet you nearly fell off your chair! 😉 But, I love a holiday which is purely celebratory fun.  How easy is it to put on something green and celebrate with the best of them?  Besides, I can’t give anyone good reason to pinch me.  I think I’ve got myself covered from potential physical harm with this maxi don’t you think?

Hope you had a great weekend.  Happy St. Patrick’s day!

DSC_4884_2I discovered VPL about two years ago and fell in love with all their color blocked pieces.  I had no idea that VPL stands for visible panty line based on their fundamental concept of bringing innerwear out.  It’s no wonder I’ve such an affinity to this line.  I love undergarment inspired wear on any level.  The yellow version of this maxi is color blocked with heather grey and it’s such a great combination.

Home for the Holidays

DSC_6278_2I’m excited to be styling a dressy look for those more formal holiday parties this time of year.  And what really dresses up this look lies in the accessories because this versatile dress can also be worn as a casual, summer maxi.  I’ve added satin heels, a cropped faux fur jacket, and statement jewelry to turn up the glam factor.  The jewelry is chloe + isabel from one of their vintage collections.  I like that it complements the color of this dress perfectly and is so elegant it completes this look!

DSC_6391_2My favorite part of the holidays is relaxing by the fireplace in pajamas on Christmas day.  It feels like the reward after all the planning and preparation which goes into the holiday season.  Thus, I always look forward to being home for the holidays.

Bonjour

DSC_5198_2Bonjour!  I bet you recognize where these photos were taken. But just in case you don’t…it’s La Boulange.  I love a good French bakery.  In fact, my absolute favorite is Bouchon in Napa. When my craving for Bouchon strikes, I have been known to hop into the car and drive over an hour just to satisfy that need. However, during the interim I can curb my cravings with La Boulange.  I love their almond croissants with the large lattes served in a bowl! 😉DSC_5158_2Fashion can be such an expression of fantasies which is the case here!  I’m wearing a look which I would imagine wearing on a French summer morning at  the best French pâtisserie getting fresh bread and pastries. Sound délicieux?  It does, doesn’t it?DSC_4815_2DSC_4868_2DSC_4989_2DSC_5195_2DSC_5043_2DSC_5058_2DSC_5264_2Au revoir!  Have a wonderful day!
