Peter Pilotto Spring 2014

I first fell in love with Peter Pilotto when I learned of the brand's collaboration with Target {I purchased 2 pieces from the affordable collection, I love them both!} and their Spring 2014 runway show solidified my adoration. Every look is a work of art, and the bright colors are so perfect for the warmer months. Cannot wait to see what is in store for Peter Pilotto this fall! {All images via}

Summer Easy

I love keeping an outfit simple in the summer; a simple, chic dress and minimal accessories can look so classic! Below is my idea of this concept, and a few pieces I am dying to have {I LOVE those sandals, and they're totally affordable!}

A New Dress

There are few things more fun and exciting than receiving a new dress, and this Amanda Moss seersucker/linen dress is my new favorite {buy here}.  I received it as a gift when my parents went on a trip to Montreal, and it was love at first sight {and wear! It fits perfectly}. Amanda Moss is a young designer with huge talent; based out of Montreal, all of her pieces are made in Canada and truly each dress is gorgeous.  I have my eye on {this} one and {this} one.  I plan on wearing this one all throughout the summer months :)

Currently Coveting

Happy Monday! Below are a few items that I am currently coveting, and kind of need/want; the dress is darling and edgy without being too revealing {want}, and the sandals are classic and the perfect shade of metallic to go with any outfit during the summer {need}. I am ALWAYS in the market for a new nail polish {want}, and those Pamela Love earrings are simple, yet have a unique twist that would go with most ensembles {want, but arguably a need}.  Which piece would you covet?

Cool Tones

I normally gravitate towards gold jewelry and warm tones, but once in a while I like to wear silver/cool tones to change things up. I love the look of oxidized silver, and a metallic/mirrored silver clutch is something I think I need to add to my wardrobe.  And a fun pop of blue {how awesome are those heels!?} tops off any outfit perfectly :)

Summer in America

I recently browsed a Departures issue focusing on Summer in America; the summer months always make me long for a beach vacation, but when that is not possible I just focus my style on summer-inspired things: blue nails and fun, pink shades for my lips. As long as I am wearing these items and looking through a summer-themed magazine, I can always just daydream that I am on a beach somewhere :) Nail polish: Ciate in "Boom Box" and Estee Lauder's Pure Color lipstick in "Pinkberry" and Pure Color gloss in "Pink Innocence"

Fashion + Philanthropy Friday

Happy Friday! Every summer I try to stock up on flowy, fun tops to pair with shorts and skinny jeans, and below is absolutely one of those shirts! Totally affordable and proceeds go towards a great cause, this shirt {shop here} by Krochet Kids Intl. provides jobs to women to help lift their families out of poverty. I love how adding to my summer wardrobe helps those in need :)

Gold Choker

Once in a while, I find a new trend that I am so tempted to splurge on because it seems like something that won't go out of style and can be a new classic piece.  The gold choker that can be found everywhere right now is one of those trends; I love how it is a more sophisticated nod to the 90s, and it is simple enough that it can go with anything.  Below are a few that I am loving right now {#5 is my favorite..}:

Garden Party

I love outdoor parties and alfresco dining {and "wining"!} and below is my idea of the PERFECT outfit for such an occasion.  I love the look of white-on-white, and flowy pants with a cropped top and neutral accessories is something I wish would just magically appear in my closet :) {Image via The Glitter Guide here}
