Nautical Chic…

Nautical-FF

ONE||TWO||THREE||FOUR||FIVE

One classic style you can count on to never go out of style is “American Nautical Chic,” –made popular in the 1960’s by style icon, Jackie Kennedy. However, you would be surprised to know that she was actually huge fan of European designers, but because of her title, she was encouraged by the President to only wear American designers. If you like reading about Jackie O’s life, here is an amazing article from Vanity Fair magazine, May 2016.

Soft Joie Dress…

I love the Soft Joie line –everything is so wearable and flattering. Click Here to see their Sale Items.

I love a classic leather tassel saddle-bag, like this one from Oliveve. You can wear it alone, or add a bag charm.

 Dress: Soft Joie c/o Kane  & Similar || Bag: Oliveve c/o Kane  || Dolce Vita Sandals via Nordstrom Similar || Bobbi Brown Lip Color || JNelly Photography

I love this Soft Joie dress because it is soft, breathable cotton that is very just “throw-on-and-go.” Summertime is about easy, casual looks that aren’t  over-analyzed. I prefer to have something soft to wear if I have been at the beach and am a little sunburned!  I also like this dress by the same brand…it is similar, but with short-sleeves.

Happy Wednesday! Today, I am featuring this bright and fun orange Saylor Dress. Orange is the most under-rated color in fashion and I’m not sure why…it is so fun for summer and a big trend this year. I added a little bag charm to jazz up this Mallory Saddle Bag. Summer is a time to be fun, colorful, and daring in your choices. Just be thoughtful about your makeup choices — a coral lip color would be good.

How to…Shop Like a Fashion Blogger

How to Shop Like a “Fashion Blogger”

I think the assumption surrounding bloggers is that everything we wear is free or borrowed. If this were the case, I would be dancing from the hilltops! Yes, it’s true, we still have to buy our own clothing –especially when it comes to closet-building essentials for a particular season or for trending items that retailers are not carrying yet. 

Like any other start-up, I have to be “smart” about what I buy, where I buy it, and for how much. When I start talking to my friends about blogging, the main concern I hear is, “I loved that Red-Valentino dress you had on, but I am not in a season of life right now where it fits in my budget.” Guess what!? You are not alone, which is why I am going to provide you with a few tricks for finding what you love, at a price you love.
