The first day of summer starts this Thursday and I’ve found the perfect midi dress from Reformation to welcome it.
Say hello to the Persimmon Dress. I first saw this dress online and actually wanted to wear it for the wedding I went to a few weeks ago. When I went into Reformation to try it on, I didn’t think it fit the wedding dress code but I still really liked it, so I got it anyway. The dress style I got is Zinnia, but it comes in 6 other different styles. I really love the color, simply floral, and the center front buttons. It’s an easy dress to transform from daytime with flats or sneakers to evening wear with a pair of heels.
Check out the look below and let me know how you’re welcoming the summer this week. Cheers!

Don’t you sometimes just want to wear a simple outfit that is still very cute? I’m always trying to achieve an effortless look. You know that “I’m not really trying,” look but you totally are! I’m slowly learning how to make basic pieces of clothing very chic by keeping the clothing simple and adding a piece of accessory that pops.
Which is what I tried to achieve with this outfit. I wore a pair of high waist skinny jeans, a knit top, vans and for the POP I added a fun pair of sunglasses. I got the jeans last year at Marshals and cut off the bottoms because I didn’t like how skinny they were. The knit top from the Goodwill in Union Square and Vans from…I don’t even remember, I’ve had them forever. The Sunglasses are from Rainbow OPTX and are mood-boosting shades. They have a bunch of different colors for different moods. The color I’m rocking is the rose lens and can be used to awaken compassion, love, and purity.
Let me know if you like this look and I’ll catch you next week.

After the Royal Wedding last month, it seems like wedding season is in full swing. At least that’s all I’ve been seeing on my Instagram discovery page lately. Lucky for me, Clark and I were able to join in on the festivities by attending his cousin’s wedding this weekend in Philly at the beautiful Historic Waynesborough House.
Following the wedding cocktail dress code, I decided to keep my dress color toned down. I got my dress from Reformation. They’re a company that makes their clothing with sustainable materials, rescued deadstock fabrics and repurposed vintage clothing which I love and they have a full line of wedding guest dresses to shop from. The dress I’m wearing is the Butterfly Dress. It’s an off-the-shoulder dress with a sweetheart neckline and ruffled edge sleeves. This dress was so comfortable to move around in and fit like second skin. I paired the dress with a pair of heels sandals from BCBG and a straw bag from Zara.
Check out the pictures I took from the wedding and let me know what you think about the dress. Also, I took all these pictures on my iPhone because I didn’t want to carry my huge DLSR, and they came out pretty well!

One thing you can never go wrong with is a floral dress. I don’t have many but lately every time I go shopping, I seem to gravitate towards them. I grabbed this silk dress at H&M for $15. The original price tag was $200. I always go to the sale section first before looking at anything else in the store and I always find amazing pieces on the cheap that I like.
The thing that attracted to this particular floral dress was the potential for versatility I saw in it for the changing of the seasons. In the summer time, you can easily wear it as is with some sandals or throw on some boots and jacket in the fall.
Since this floral dress already has so much going on with the floral print, I decided to keep the other components of the look simple. So I paired it with a pair of XOXO wedges I got at Burlington which are super comfy and a straw bag from the Goodwill. I wish the straw bag had more structure, but you gotta work with what you got.
Let me know what you think of this look and send me some of your favorite floral dresses! Also Happy Memorial Day Friends!

So you guys already know my love of thrifting is real, and I recently stopped at a Goodwill on the upper west side before heading to work and found this gorgeous moire gold and white pattern dress for $12 DOLLARS! Yes, you read that right.
I was running a bit late to work so I opted to not try it on and hoped the thrifting Gods would just let this dress fit me, and it did.
Styling this dress was no work at all. I went with a very “less is more” look, so I threw on some square-ish earrings and my favorite sandals from M4D3 at the moment and voila! Hope you guys rock with this look as much as I did!
