sale-ing into the weekend

My sister called me yesterday to report that she had managed to snap up a bounty of on-sale goodies both online and in person (by sending her assistant!)--all from a photo shoot in Malibu. I commended her on this dexterous feat, then followed in her digital footsteps. My first and only stop: Nordstrom's, where I was overwhelmed/impressed (as was my sis!) with the plethora of primo designer finds. My top ten: the sweet Ganni top, above, this super versatile Givenchy leather satchel, this Miu Miu patent leather slingbacks, this ruffled Isabel Marant Etoile top, this party-ready Altuzarra dress, these classic Jimmy Choo ankle-strap pumps, this flirty Rebecca Taylor dress, this pretty Sea eyelet blouse, and this swingy Free People blouse.

I'd could easily breeze around in this tunic all summer long--and when it gets cooler, tuck it into a pair of boyfriend jeans and wear it as a top!

sunny chic

Did I mention that my cleanse also entails four-hour workouts every day? Ug, yes. So, you can just imagine how excited I'll be this Friday afternoon when I get to ditch my leggings, sneakers and sports bras for a long-weekend spate of summer dress debuts, including the show-stopping yellow maxi, above, along with these now on-sale lovelies from Zimmermann, Anjuna, and Victoria Beckham! Cleanse or not, you too can go for a new and improved look this holiday weekend with help from Shopbop's, Neiman Marcus's and Nordstrom's epic sales. Think this, this, this and this.

cleansing and sale-ing

Don't judge me: I'm cleansing this week. No sugar, gluten, soy, caffeine, alcohol, animal protein, or dairy. I'm trying to compensate for what my BFF calls the "98% vacationing" I've been doing (Tulum, Caribbean, Mexico, Sonoma, etc)! That being said, I'm not completely depriving myself of all of my vices, specifically sale shopping! Yes, I am going to indulge in the discounts at Netaporter, where on-sale (read: irresistible) treats like the Chloe bag, above, is up for grabs, along with this Altuzarra skirt, this Isabel Marant mini dress, and these Frame straight leg jeans. Check it all out here!

romantic blouses

This spring's romantic blouses are so up my I-wear-my-heart-on-my-sleeve alley! Kitted out with ruffles, lace, and/or puffy sleeves, they're exactly what my flirty dreams are made of. My favorites of the season come from Ganni, below, Pixie Market, La Chemise, Petersyn, Isabel Marant Etoile, Paul & Joe, and J.O.A.

mar in bazaar!

Major news, people: my "Jack" dress is currently gracing the pages of Harper's Bazaar June/July issue (as part of its Jet Set capsule collection)--and it's also available for purchase on ShopBAZAAR.com. Woo hoo! I'll be wearing this super cute tassel-trimmed dress everywhere this summer, from Malibu to Montauk and even downtown Manhattan. It's lined with shorts, so I can really run around easily. The bell sleeves I like to push up during the day, and when it's really hot, I skip the belt for a more breezy look. It's truly the definition of effortlessly chic! Get one before it goes!


the midaxi

As our Australian counterparts transition into fall, it's telling to see what they're wearing. I view it as a virtual peek into our fashion future, and as far as I can tell, it's all about a long dress, AKA, "the midaxi." These fresh shin-grazing gems are being worn on their own as well as over jeans. I'd like to get ahead of this trend with any of these lovelies from Topshop, Ganni, Kos Resort, Vilshenko and Mango (similar to above).

jump aboard

I'm thinking jumpsuits might just be THE answer this summer, giving me all the sexy, comfy, one-step-dressing practicality I could ask for. Some options I'm eyeing: this louche Faithfull striped one, above, this maxi lookalike Free People, this floral Willow & Clay, and this eyelet Talulah.

summer shirts

In my book, effortlessly chic tops are the ideal summer staples, because they go with everything from out-to-dinner jeans to a cute bikini (and then some!). The Mango cotton blouse, is a prime example, with its soft stripes and statement-making embroidered  sleeves. I also like these standouts from Anthropologie, ALC, Joseph, Vince, Rixo London and Club Monaco.
