Garden Party II

Wearing: Reformation dress-similar,Urban Outfitters chambray,Joie sandals,Madewell shades,Wanderlust & Co. bracelets,Luv Aj hand chain,Saint Laurent bag 

In a weak effort to curb my excessive (garden) partying with the influence of Reformation and Zara, my failed attempt were as proven by both my poor wallet and closet. After this playsuit antic pulled back in June, I've fallen of the floral bandwagon once again. Nothing better than a floral dress in the summer heat.

Of course, dresses are something that I normally avoid like the plague if the suggested attire is not "formal". Also putting into consideration that all I've worn this summer is sailing gear and my respected plethora of rompers, denim, and such.... I have a few guidelines when it comes to sporting dresses- like that chambray around the waist. Makeshift belt and a savior regarding mechanical wind chills aka AC.

So help a girl out and let her have one last hoorah in florals.

If you guys couldn't figure it out (I mean... it's not the hard) I'm quite the shoe head. I can never resist any sneaker, sandal, or flat- sometimes heels- you throw my way. Alas, I've decided to include some video content to the blog. *slow clap* about time, Sloane- I know... I know...

I'm no Spielberg or Anderson, but the video isn't too shabby. Please share what you would like to see on here, and subscribe to my

 Wearing: Topshop blouse,Reformation jeans,Joie sandals, Hermes, Monica Vinader and vintage bracelets,Catbird rings, Bauble Bar ring

It's a love affair with off the shoulder blouses. They remind me of frolicking through the Mediterranean circa 1960s. Boating with Bardot, thought you'd never ask. Despite the annoyance of constantly pulling down the sleeves, they give my usual tomboy style, an easy dose of feminine (what you say!) The contrast of the gypsy style blouse and the boyfriend jeans is unexpected but a combination that will be worn on repeat.

If only I could be laying out at Club 55 gazing out into the blue horizon. Does someone have a one way ticket to France? Je voyagerai rapide. See ya then.

Return of the Slides

For awhile, I

had

this odd thing against slides. Maybe because when I thought about slides, I thought of

hippies

wearing Birkenstocks. As much I love those 70s vibes, that was pushing it just a smudge too far. But since then, they are quickly growing on me. I first purchased

these Joie sandals

 and then these 

Topshop sliders

. Both have been on a proper routine- kicking those converse to the curb (with the pun, no less). I've converted to the slide and ride life- who'd would have thought?

I have still haven't made that jump to

Birks

- similar to my thing with overalls. But soon my friends, so I will venture into Birk-land. Shop below some slides that work no matter your style.

And I cannot forget my dad in this Birks situation. He was way ahead of the trend for this one. Beat me to it.

Leather Letters

Wearing: Zara leather jacket, (similar),J.Crew denim vest, Zara playsuit (last worn here,similar),Joie sandals,Celine Bag

A majority of my most worn pieces are from the holy grail of high-street treasure hunting: Zara. My most recent score was this leather jacket. It just shows how a staple piece doesn't need to be a million bucks but that it can make you feel that much. Once again, points to Zara for their ability to wow me every single time. Like this playsuit, which has me- the girl who used to never wear black- sports the color at least twice a week. Magic powers... I tell you. All year round leather is my preferred type of topper- perfect for chilly Spring mornings and Summer nights. But, if you aren't feeling the black for summer, try white. No matter what though, leather gives every outfit some of attitude. And who wouldn't want that?

Wearing:

Reformation dress

,

Joie sandals

, Oliver Peoples sunglasses c/o Seaside Luxe

Despite the unpredictable weather, my closet has made a full transition to Spring (or what is left of it). Lately, this

Reformation dress

 has been quite the star standout. As you guys can tell, I am big fan of their pieces and this dress is no different. I'm quite shocked on how much wear its been getting, varying from Easter to a few days ago when paired with a

denim shirt

. Due to the semi-permanent arctic blast wearing a dress this past weekend without a jacket was dare I say, liberating. Alas, all my regards to Reformation for creating the perfect dress. I'll be back to find a runner up.
