An ongoing love affaire with all things fashionable, tasty and fun

Summer Shopping

All of the killer Memorial Day Weekend sales seems to have gotten me into a shopping mood… So what’s on my fashion day dreaming list right now?

White Blazer:

White-Blazer-Calvin-Klein

{Calvin Klein Combo Jacket – $129 via Bloomingdale’s}

Sleek & simple – A structured white blazer is the perfect layering piece for Spring and Summer. Why don’t I own one? Because I’m a klutz and a chronic spiller. True story. However, if I wasn’t, this would be at the very top of my Must Have List.

Boyfriend Vest:

Boyfriend-Waistcoat-Drape-Collar-Vest

{h.i.p Drape Collar Vest – $38 via Nordstrom}

My style is fairly feminine but I do love adding some menswear-inspired touches to a look like a classic button-down, mens watch, or even some flat lace-up Oxfords. My dream menswear inspired piece for this season? An oversized waistcoat – Otherwise known as a “boyfriend vest.” You can layer it over a dress to mix your style up, pair with matching pants for a more formal look, or keep it super casual with shorts and a basic tee.

Chunky Cut-Out Booties:

Choies-Cut-Out-Flat-Boot-Sandal

{Pointed Cut Out Flat Shoes – $99 via Choies}

I adore these Alexander Wang wannabe booties – I’ve been dying over all the fun flats out right now. From smoking slippers, boat shoes, and loafers to Oxfords, gladiators, and cut-out ballet flats. This pair is simple but still eye-catching and interesting, which is the perfect combination for me!
