Prada

Under the Boardwalk, Down by the Sea…….

The post for today needs as little explanation as it does preparation when getting ready! This is really just the perfect summer dress.  The black and white stripes and the easy strapless maxi dress are details that are the epitome of summer style.

 

I added some simple jewelry and was set for anything the day called for from day to night.  This look belongs in The Dummies Guide to Style, you can’t go wrong.

Blue Ivy

Today’s featured outfit is actually a matching skirt and top that could be perceived as a dress.  There are so many things I love about this outfit by Torn.  The fabric is so stretchy and comfortable, perfect for hitting up the candy store and the colors are so crisp.  The design of stripes is shaken up by the v pattern at the front and back of the skirt.The skirt is short and flouncy, giving a very relaxed yet pulled together feel.  I guess I am not the only one that finds this outfit very appealing, as the compliments I received while shooting this post (and shopping along the way) were numerous!  If you were to wear it out in the evening, you could easily add heels and a great wrap if it were a cool evening.  I carried my neutral Prada bag, as the color and pattern in the outfit are really what does the talking here.  I wore Chanel sandals for the power walking I intended to do in the short time I had to get some browsing (shopping) in.  This outfit is one of those that just makes you feel good when you are wearing it! DSC_0644DSC_0647DSC_0667DSC_0675DSC_0672DSC_0655Top: Torn by Ronny Kobo | Skirt: Torn by Ronny Kobo | BagPrada| Shoes: Chanel ( Purchased In Store at Saks)

Bringing in the Heavy Hitters

Today’s elegant outfit is a perfect storm composed of several designer labels. I excitedly pulled this outfit together and loved the end result. Early into the write-up, I realized that each of these pieces could really stand on their own and add oomph to any outfit. However, combined into one look, the result hits it out of the park. This neutral ensemble will get you noticed for all the right reasons. I am very excited to present this to you today and since I’m a fan of each item equally, I will introduce them top-down. My hair was flat-ironed and held back by a two inch quilted Burberry headband in nude, patent leather. The Holy Lace Tube Top by Stone Cold Fox is truly elegant. It’s off the shoulder style and full slit back are details done to perfection. The lacy pattern lends itself perfectly to the easy flow of the top. I chose to put this top with a pair of Haute Hippie long, flowing, pleated pants. These two pieces together made a perfect outfit, but I couldn’t stop there. I accessorized with a gold Chanel chain and coin belt, a birthday gift I could not wait to Christen. On to the shoes! The Valentino patent leather Rockstud Slingback  pumps in blush (what a mouthful, but so sweet on the tongue) were an obvious choice. This power packed outfit needed very little in the way of jewelry. I added a few thin gold and crystal bangles onto my Cartier Love Bracelet and on the opposite hand, a large ivory and gold statement ring. My much-loved Prada Saffian Lux tote in Cammeo was the bag of choice and I was out! Not gonna lie, feelin’ fly!DSC_0226DSC_0230DSC_0228DSC_0232DSC_0220DSC_0245DSC_0236DSC_0246
