Although I like the current crop top trend happening, it definitely intimidates me; I feel too old for them, and a little self-conscious about showing skin in that way. The top below is my idea of the perfect way to tackle this trend: simple, classic, and not too revealing!

Jennifer Meyer for The Zoe Report

I ADORE Jennifer Meyer jewelry, and I was so excited to learn of the recent collab between the fab jewelry brand and The Zoe Report. Each gold piece represents something that brings luck, and each one has a diamond in it {love it!}; I am drooling over each of these, but I think the Horseshoe diamond necklace is the one I want the most - which piece do you want?

Little Black Clutch

For the longest time, I did not own a black clutch; something that is a staple in most women's wardrobes, I had always just opted for a mid-size black bag when going out.  After my trip to NYC back in December, I found the PERFECT little black leather clutch at the Miu Miu store on Madison Ave. It goes with everything - jeans and a flowy top for a date night, or a fancy dress for a wedding.  Who makes your go-to black clutch?

Happy Friday! So excited about yet another amazing collaboration - TOMS x Paul van Dyk {shop here}. Paul van Dyk is both a famous DJ and philanthropist, and now designer with this TOMS collection that is inspired by global citizenship.  Any TOMS product is a great way to give back, but I actually think I NEED those sunglasses! :)

Pretty + Pink

Especially during the warmer months, I think there is nothing better than adding some fun, feminine touches to every outfit and space in the home. Whether it's bright pink, beautiful fresh flowers, or something sparkly, I believe girly pieces are always in style :)

Daytime Chic

Sometimes I find it hard to look put together during the day in the summer; I am always tempted to wear the same old airy tank top with shorts and sandals, and my usual crossbody bag to beat the heat.  Below is a great get-up that looks effortlessly chic for hot summer days: a simple, neutral dress, a great tote, fun earrings, and sparkly sandals!

As much as I love an all-black ensemble or a bright print for summer, I always gravitate towards pastels.  I received this beautiful pale pink blouse by Theory as a birthday gift back in March {buy here}, and this recent Jewelmint purchase {sign up here} is my new favorite statement necklace with the perfect pastel shades. I plan on wearing this combo all throughout summer :)
