This summer I want to wear white and only white …
all day, everyday, non-stop white! 
Oh and when I say white, you know I mean white, with a whole mess of bright colors and geometric patterns, right?
Summer in the city brings out a different side of me in all elements, including my style. I don’t usually get tanner (I’m addicted to SPF and terrified of skin cancer) but my sunglasses get bigger, shorts get shorter (hopefully not too short) and my legs actually stay shaved — well most days, so of course my color palette needs a complimentary makeover and my sights are set on bright white.

When I found this skirt I instantly fell in love with all of the bright colors and bold pattern — it reminded me of a piñata, PAR-TAY! I knew I had to have the matching patterned top as well so I could double it up as a dress or wear them as separates. The top is perfect with jeans & flats, tailored white shorts and sandals or tucked into a bright midi while the skirt is just screaming for a solid crop top, knotted chambray button-up or simple white tee. 
Since I allotted for a print on print look, I had to tone things down with my go-to shoe. I thought these powder-blue babies might be stuck on the shelf this summer (they’re suede) but after bracing the snow during Fashion Week, I thought they deserved some fun in the sun!
Oh and incase you’ve been living under a rock, the Zara sale is alive and kicking — and these Court Bow Pump are just one of the amazingly discounted must-haves.

The Skort Suit

2nd June 2014

This summer, I’m skirting, no skorting the rules! It’s far to hot for a full suit, so I switched things up with a skorted suit. If that wasn’t enough, I’m also adding a pop of pink to brighten everything up!

Skort: c/o Lulusa summer must have – also loving this green one
Top: Asos sleeveless button up – a great basic – actually prefer this revolve one!
I am also loving the idea of a button up with a built in bow like this Asos one
Blazer: Thrifted – loving this Alice & Olivia one, also comes in white!
Bow: Asos (it actually came with a top) similar here and here or in peach here!
Shoes: Joe Fresh Shoes (On Sale in Store) // Similar round toe on sale here
Purse: Coach Bleeker Pinnacle Crossbody in Painted Snake – obsessed with this one
Last summer I was all about the origami skort – it’s just such an easy option, especially for NYC heat! I picked up the skort last summer in three colors and couldn’t wait to pull it out again. Zara was the first to mass market the skort, but so many other retailers and have started selling similar styles in bright colors and for such a steal – so I was ticked pink when Lulus sent me this neon skort! I actually prefer the Lulus design to the Zara one because it’s a little more fitted and high waisted! I have to pin my Zara skort even in the smallest size to make it fit right, but the Lulus one for a lower price fits perfectly and right along my waist so i can tuck in tops with ease. Let’s just say I’m in love and might have to pick up the mint green option as well, swoon!
What do you think of the skort trend from last year? Is it a hit or miss?
