new york city can be a jungle...just minus any of the actual greenery. so i often resort to adding some green to the concrete with a fabulous print! this "jardin" print from kate spade's may collection jumped out at me as soon as i saw it - and i'm not going to lie, i basically wear this dress every day to work! the fun pops of color (can you see the little humming birds on the print too?) paired with the lace detail create the perfect spring dress to help me conquer the wilderness!
is it too early in the season to wave my white flag? summer is here and mother nature is not being shy about it! the heat and humidity are in full swing and the only thing i can manage to put on in the morning are little (preferably white) dresses. when the humidity percentage is higher than my rent, i reach for dresses, like this one, that are easy, lightweight, and breathable! the open sleeve allows me to still be modest all while keeping me cool. the only thing this dress can't do is make the temperature go back down!
with summer's heat creeping upon us - okay it is already here because this week in nyc was hot - i keep finding myself reaching for one of my old favorite combos: the crop top paired with a high-waisted skirt. and bonus points if they match! crop tops are an amazing way to show off your waist and the entire skirt or bottom all while staying comfortable with the climbing temperatures. what are some of your favorite ways to stay cool and comfy during the summer?
have you ever scrolled through a website and immediately stoped everything because you found the most perfect dress in the whole wide world? well that happened to me and this dress. the colors were perfection and the jeweled details had my name written all over it! but, of course, the reason i truly love this dress is because it is the epitome of a perfect garden party dress. it was at this moment that i wished i lived in a home with a spacious backyard so i could host pinterest-worthy parties with my own signature cocktail! ...i really wish this all the time to be honest.
