Penchant for Pretty

Many of Peter Som’s dresses retail for over a grand. These beauties from Anthropolgie are well under that price tag. I adore the whimsical floral prints, perfect for any summer soiree.
The left and middle are my favorites, which pretty frock would you wear?

Does anyone else love these graphic palm prints as much as I do? They scream tropical resort without going anywhere! I adore the blazer and short set and envision wearing it to many an outdoor happy hour, whether in the city, by the pool, or at the beach.
Are there any prints or trends that you can’t get enough of for summer?

I can’t say that I am a fan of all Coach bags, the ones with Coach plastered all over them are definitely not for me. Their Legacy Collection is another story I love the classic lines and vibrant colors that this bag comes in. The bag is the perfect in between size for transitioning from work to meeting up with friends afterwards.
I adore the mint color, however I’d be nervous that it would soil quickly, so I’m leaning towards the coral. Which one could you see toting around town?

Searching for the perfect spring candle? Look no further, this Desert Tulip candle by Illume Candles is sure to please. Its light fragrance is crisp and is reminiscent of a fresh bouquet of tulips, plus the container is beautiful. 
What’s your favorite spring candle?

One of my favorite pieces of snail mail is the J. Crew catalogue. It’s always so beautifully curated and is as inspiring as any fashion magazine. This beautiful floral fabric is used in a variety of garments from a scarf to bathing suits. I am swooning over the bellbottoms perfectly captured in Bazaar magazine.

What are your thoughts on this print?

How gorgeous is this colorful striped fabric? It incorporates two of my loves, stripes and color. The fabric is vibrant and the texture and quality give it the look of an expensive textile.

The vivid colors are so lovely! With so many hues within the fabric the possibilities for matching it and finding complimentary patterns to work with it are endless. Guess what? It’s from Ikea and it is a steal per yard, I sense a summer upholstering project on the horizon.

What are your thoughts busy or beautiful?

I love Zara! They are never short on graphic colorful prints at prices that can’t be beat. I was perusing the internet for the perfect summer dress. This one is versatile and would be perfect for rooftop cocktails and leisurely weekend brunches.

I came across these oxfords a few months ago. I love the vibrant floral print. Then, as I was perusing ShopBop’s site, (they’re offering 20% off your purchase) I came across these loafers and did a double take.
Now, usually when I find a budget friendly option and its more expensive counterpart the items are similar. However, these shoes are the exact same pattern with over $100 difference between the two. Which do you like best?

Target is know to do collaborations with high end designers like Missoni and Jason Wu. Sunday marks the launch of another type of partnership this time with stylist to the stars Kate Young.

All of the pieces will be available for under $100. Her aesthetic is glamorous and fun. Kate Mara and Michelle Williams (I love her hairstyle) look fabulous donning her designs from the collection.

Will you be picking up any of Kate Young’s pieces?

Sometimes I tend to overdress. For example, on my recent trip to Bermuda I wore glittery gold flats to climb to the pinnacle of a lighthouse and mile long walks down dirt roads. While I own sneakers, they are solely for the purpose of working out and are far to clunky and unfashionable to wear on the regular. Leading me to the conclusion that I need more practical footwear for such outings. These adorably stylish gold Superga sneakers are the answer to my dilemma!
This ensemble would be perfect for island exploring or doing weekend errands. I adore the Madewell hat and I’m so happy that they restocked it! How do you balance being stylish yet comfortable?
