July 2012 archive
As I’ve said before, I adore le chapeaux! I love the way a hat makes an outfit a full, complete look. According to my mom, I have had this love affair with hats since babyhood when I would refuse to leave the house without a hat.
Great topper for a picnic or concert in the park
This neutral toned look gets an extra kick with the hat and braid
I can see myself in this outfit walking along La Seine
Perfect for the beach, topping off summer whites. More ways to wear white this summer are here, here, and here
These two tops are in heavy rotation in my wardrobe lately. Both pieces are versatile and work well even with the heat waves most of the country is suffering from as they are light-weight, breathable and oh so cute.
J Crew striped linen top works well with denim and shorts
Joie Fanny lace top is so pretty and works with a multitude of looks
I woke up hungry this morning so naturally all I can think about are sweet treats to indulge in this weekend. A few I am deciding from include…
Belgian Waffles topped with fruit and whipped cream. I have been obsessed with Belgian Waffles since a recent trip to Baltimore
Coconut and lime ice cream sandwiches found on one of my favorite blogs
Raw Cookie Dough Balls sound delicious and seem easy to make
These oatmeal parfaits must be made again! I used vanilla yogurt, fresh raspberries and blueberries, and indulged in crumbled oatmeal cookies instead of cereal.
The high/low skirts are a fun summer trend that is surprisingly versatile, very cute and easy to wear casual or dressed up with tanks, blouses and blazers.
Neutral toned accordion pleats paired with a black moto jacket create a tough/sweet mix
This has several elements going on with the bright skirt, striped bustier and dusty coral blazer. All the pieces play off each other well and create a fun day or night look
This look is a much more casual with the loose tank and bandeau. It is perfect for a hot summer day in the city
One of my favorite wardrobe pieces is a maxi skirt. I love the light, breezy fabric as the skirt blows in the air on a summer day, pairing the skirts with tanks, tees and denim or mixing in bright pops of color.
Love this for a sweet take on a cutout dress. Perfect for the summer heat and casual when mixed with the tie dye cloudy denim and bold necklace
Yes a baby style muse! I was thrilled when Victoria Beckham was famously quoted in Women’s Wear Daily stating “I love the French clothes for little girls, I like little girls to look like little girls.” I wholeheartedly agree with this and love how she has embraced this look for Harper.
Adorable in dusty pink cords, tiny Chuck’s and a mini floral print top

Sweet white top and Minnie ears at Disneyland

Looking like a tiny dancer in Stella McCartney with a side silver hairbow
Spotted in Manhattan near Chelsea, on 9th and 14th is a Missoni clad Michelangelo statue by the Spanish artist Demo.
Continuing the 4th of July Celebration (part one here) the most important decision for any party is what to wear! I prefer to use the traditional red, white and blue in unique ways.
Star print top and white cutoffs get an extra pop with the hot pink shoes and studded clutch
Bold red lips and striped top paired with a sweet white mini create a flirty 4th
Another mix of blue and white with a sophisticated yet fun high-waisted polka dot skirt
The classic stripe sweater and crisp blue shorts are perfect with blue espadrilles and straw fedora
Blue and white chevron shorts with a red top pop when paired with a bright yellow jackets and stacked gold bracelets
I love parties and a especially a theme party so in honor of the 4th of July, here are several party ideas I will be using tomorrow…
Star shaped pizzas are a fun Patriotic snack. I’ll be making mine using a cookie cutter
Star shaped grilled cheese with red and blue fruits create a healthy treat
Cannot wait to make this parfait treat found here. I am varying the recipe slightly, using vanilla yogurt and oatmeal cookies. I am also topping them with red and blue straws with streamers attached
Incredibly excited to create this delicious and fun S’mores Bar
