Summer In Pink

Recently I've been a little enamored with pink. Not Schiaparelli pink but a softer pink, like the sky after a summer sunset. Which seems appropriate as summer is {somehow!} already winding down.


To help sooth those end of summer blues, go pink! Here's what's been inspiring me...

Resort 2015 // Short & Chic

I've been spending some time lately getting caught-up on Resort 2015 collections, and while doing so I've noticed a fun little trend. Shorts! OKOK - I know. Shorts? For Resort? A Trend? But before you get all...
...let me explain. This trend isn't "I'm going to the beach lemme throw on some shorts" shorts. It's fancy shorts - like, "I'd rock that at work shorts." Let's dive in:  

Check out what Carolina Herrera is up to. Super classy high-waisted shorts paired with fancy tops and a fun 1940s vibe {I'm aware I have included a dress, it was just way too cute to leave out!}
Here's Andrew Gn with a look that feels like the uber chic up-town girl's cool little sister. I'd hang out with her, wouldn't you? 
And of course Rachel Zoe brings an elegant yet edgy take on the look with several monochromatic sets.   
And to finish up my little analysis, here's Honor. The ultimate in girly with florals and lace and wispy romantic blouses. Le sigh. 

So, see what I mean? Pretty fun little trend, huh? And to think you doubted me! 

Want to rock this look now? Here are a few fun options:

Day to Night White

Can we take a moment to appreciate the unlimited chic-ness of Diane Kruger? Because she is knocking it out of the park in New York City this week.

Exhibit A: Looking sweet for a Today Show appearance
Exhibit B: Looking sleek for a Tonight Show appearance.

I love how she can rock summer whites 2 ways and look amazing in both. Which style do you prefer?

Upping My Skirt Game

This morning while standing in front of my closet, deeply pondering what to wear, I came to the realization that I have a lot of cute blouses, blouses I would usually pair with nice jeans. But it's summer, and I live in Manhattan, and the thought of wearing jeans is as laughable as the thought of wearing jeans into a sauna (which is basically what Subway stations have become...) So, as soon as summer hits you need skirts to pair with your cute blouses - and I've realized I have a serious skirt shortage.

Guess what that means? Time for some shopping! Loving these options:

How to Dress // Emma at the Met Gala

There were more gorgeous, glamorous ball gowns at the Met Gala last night than I could count {not really, I could if I wanted too, I swear!!} but we'll get to those later. Right now I want to talk about little miss Emma Stone, because how chic does she look?

Her rather low-key Thakoon two-piece might be a shade too casual for some, but I adore the simplicity of it. And her messy side braid is the perfect style to complete the look.


I love how accessible this look is {arguably that is not the point of the Met Ball - but it is the point of this blog!!} it would be an amazing get-up for a summer wedding, or even a fancy brunch, don't you think?

Color Me Kate

If you read this blog, chances are you are very much aware that Duchess Catherine has been giving a fashion show disguised as a tour of New Zealand and Australia. As if to apologize for her long absence from the public eye she has thrilled us with multiple outfits per-day, ranging from cute and casual to the ultimate of chic.
And she has not shied away from color on this trip. I've loved all her bold, bright numbers in blue, green, red - and even yellow. Wills allegedly told her she looked like a banana in the yellow dress below. That's the chicest banana I've ever seen...

Want to be a copy-Kate? Here are a few of my top picks for dressing the the bright hue:
dress: top shop // necklace: j crew factory // blazer: zara // top: marni // shoes: repetto // phone care: kate spade saturday
