cute camis

For the rest of the summer, I'm going to exploit the cuteness of bow-trimmed camisoles. (Reason: above.) I'll take advantage of their easy, breezy, straight-up fun, and how they're a hot-weather slam dunk paired with shorts or jeans. It would be really silly not to, especially with these cheap and cheerful styles from Asos, Rails, Lost Ink, DL1961, Simplee, Shein, Innika Choo and Storets. (The one, above, is from Storets.)

loud and proud

La dolce vita-loving Italians' predilection for the grandissimo is very much apparent in their current choice of accessory: big, bold, statement-making earrings! Sculptural and modern are the hallmark attributes of this new jewelry trend, and the great thing is it works day to night. I'm digging these affordable options from Elizabeth & James (similar to above), Gorjana, Kate Spade, Gas Bijoux, Tory Burch and Ettica.

red hot

Even though these Celine sandals (above and below) are from last year and have long sold out, I am still 100% obsessed with them. Lucky for me, I've come across a derivative pair from Free People that will finally let me make my red-shoe-fashion statement now at a fraction of the price!

getaway get-ups

Jessie Bush's Instagram feed is not only triggering serious vacation envy in me, but also inspiring vacation wardrobe wants! I am about to partake in some holiday-ing (Positano! London!), myself, so her beach-to-street outfits are particularly spot on. Feminine, flirty dresses are a must, as you can see. The smocked dress, below, is from Storets, her multi-print maxi is by Mary Katranzou and her white tiered dress is from Wiggy Kit. And so are flowy, statement-making tops (that can go with polished jeans and denim shorts), such as the Isa Arfen bubble blouse, above. I'd also pack this sweet LoveShackFancy floral print dress, this girly Ganni top, this day-to-night wrap JOA dress, this BB Dakota eyelet blouse, and this cute Loeffler Randall leather bucket bag.

fall all over

Fall may be a distant galaxy away (thank our lucky stars!), but today's an ideal time to shop for it, because Nordstrom's epic early-access sale launched today. Up for grabs: key fall pieces at up to 40% off!** The most desirable ones--i.e., the just-hit-the-rack looks that I know I'll throw on again and again and never tire of--include this striped, puff-sleeved Rebecca Taylor sweater, these velvet Loeffler Randall sandals (above, left), these spot-on, demi-boot Madewell jeans, this Clare V classic suede tote bag, and this Sea print dress (similar to above, left). Check it all out here.

**To access the sale now, you need to have a Nordstrom card which you can register for on the Nordstrom site. The sale items will be available to non-account holders as well in a week.

summer steal(s)

I scored this statement-making $20 polka dot body suit, above, the other day and wore it to Little Beach House in Malibu, where it received tons of compliments. I also snapped up this $60 dress from Asos, below, which I plan to wear with and without a bikini. Other tempting under-$100 finds this Tuesday: this pretty party-worthy Topshop lace blouse, this super cute Pixie Market straw bag, these ruffled H&M sandals, and this Fifth Label striped dress. You're welcome!


light and white

Apart from a throw-on-and-go dress, my favorite hot day hero is a white lace blouse. As you can see, it easily goes with anything from jeans to a swimsuit--and always looks sexy! Fortunately, this summer ushered in a bevy of beauties to choose from including the on-sale BA&SH top, above (expertly worn with a black bra underneath), this Mango, this organza Topshop, this one-shouldered Miguelina, and this Ulla Johnson.

haute heatwave

The National Weather Service is forecasting a record-crushing scorcher today (117+ degrees in the valley!). I'm going to keep cool in this new barely-there H&M dress, above, but would do just as well in any of these heat-proof lovelies from Tularosa, Kos Resort, Miguelina, Free People, and Jonathan Simkhai. Happy (hot) Weekend!

we are leone

Is it just me who feels a bit jipped by the July 4th holiday? It felt one long weekend too short! To perpetuate that off-duty feeling, I am currently romanticizing about wearing one of We are LEONE's dramatic duster coats. As you see they go seamlessly from the sweltering city (over jeans and a body suit) to the hotel pool (avec bikini). Added bonus: they can tremendously boost your vacation Instagram game. I'd happily play in this sheer polka dot one (above), this statemen-making lace one, and this pretty floral one.
