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

What To Wear // In Transition

According to the calendar it is now spring. However, according to the weather it is still very much winter. This makes me sad. I am sick of the cold, and I am sick of all my winter clothes - so I dreamed up this little ensemble that's bright and fun - like spring! But that will still look cute with a huge winter jacket, scarf and gloves {also a hat, and probably an umbrella}.  


Thinking warm thoughts.
