It’s Memorial Day weekend here in the States, so it’s safe to wear white again. Hahaha, that’s a rule I love to break all year long!
Anyhow, this white dress is quite sweet until I pair it with this snake skin clutch and these gladiator sandals. I’d be embarrassed to tell you how many times and how many ways I have worn this dress. All year long!
Have a terrific weekend everyone. I will definitely be thinking of the amazing men and women who have sacrificed so much.
This is fun way to display your earrings and store them.
I found this sweet little decor item in TJ Maxx a number of years ago. I tied the blue ribbon and pinned the cameo at the waist. The cameo was a find at a vintage clothing shop in Newport this past March.
I’m sure you can find similar items to use for your jewelry at TJ Maxx, Marshal’s, HomeGoods and Flea Markets. Be on the look out and be creative!
Once in a while I like to pretend I can buy $700 shoes.
Let’s see, which ones should I get?
What do you think?
All three? I agree.

Those eyes (and brows!), that face and that hair! Here’s Cara Delevigne showing them how it’s done on the red carpet at Cannes.
Have you ever been to Cannes? It is actually an average, bordering on seedy little seaside town and then there it is the big theatre with the red carpet, even when the festival isn’t going on!
Emma Watson looks darling with this tasteful gown and undone hair but I’m not a fan of this look Cindy Crawford is wearing. I think it is sexier to be subtle.
I’m loving Jennifer Lawrence’s shorter, shaggy hair.
And, of course, my all time favorite, Ines de la Fressange (here in white) always nails it!

Found these little gems at Aldo Accessories recently. The three pair of earrings all together were just $29!
The black and white check will be a fun graphic update to about anything.
I plan on wearing the blue (can’t really tell they are blue here) and coral beauties with a navy and white stripe nautical shirt.
The pair on the right will be a good neutral pair that will pick up color from whatever I have on.
Still looking for some large colorful raffia earrings. Have you seen these anywhere?
Pencil Skirt $39 Active Graphic Tee $10
Have you ever been to Joe Fresh?
Stripe Dress $29 Jacquard Short $24
Joe Fresh is in some of the big malls and it has a user friendly web site. The stores are nicely layed out without too much stuff and the people who work there are super friendly and helpful. The clothes are inexpensive, good quality, trendy and preppy. Joe Fresh sells women’s, men’s and children’s clothing. www.joefresh.com
Time to start looking for a new swimsuit?
This task never gets any easier but if you try on a million of them you are bound to find one or two that look good. This year I like the retro high waist trend.
Flash forward to 2013…
From a previous post…
No florals just solid or maybe a small dot.
So now I just need to start looking in stores and online. Some brands fit me better than others so I will focus on them. I will look online to see what those brands are offering this season and go from there.
J Crew has free shipping both ways on their swimsuits.
When we shop we are drawn to things that catch our eye. When we go to put an outfit together we more often are looking for something more basic. There are certain staples I’m always happy to have in my closet and those are the clothes that work with everything.
The perfect fit long-sleeved cotton tee in a neutral color is a must have $26.50 and the Collection Cashmere Long Sleeve Tee is another wardrobe essential $188. Both www.jcrew.com Try on a couple of sizes to make sure they are just right. Fit is everything! I think you will agree they look great, go with everything and last a long, long time.
I know everyone loves their skinny jeans but these from www.gap.com are comfortable, fit perfectly and make your legs look as long as any jeans can.
Sadly, this museum-worthy flat is no longer available. We need more of these please! www.stevemadden.com
Hats can be tricky especially combined with glasses. They are a great tool to cut down on the sun rays and glare unless you are opting for a parasol. (Hard to multitask with a parasol.)
I like the way these women are wearing their hats. They look functional as well as stylish and they are not screaming “look at me!”
Happy Friday everyone!
I hope you all have some nice summer parties on your calendar. While this dress isn’t very exciting on its own…..
This leather jacket draped over your shoulders would change things entirely.
And, these shoes and a black clutch!
