A Summer Sweater

NC weather has been somewhat of a conundrum this season, so I found myself breaking out a light-weight sweater in August. The watermelon color still leaves a glimpse of summer, but paired with distressed denim is the ultimate in cozy chic. I kept it neutral with nude sandals.

Flashy Fringe

When I think of fringe;  playful and party come to mind. Not to mention it embraces this summer's Great Gatsby's 1920's glitz theme. Amplifying the texture even more is the layering of lace. Today's version is somewhat dressed down, but could totally steal the spotlight by adding a sequin tank and a glass of champagne! (always add champagne) Though I have embraced the ensemble as black and white, color could easily be added with a bold clutch or bag,  an edgy pump or simply a coral lip!

Afternoon Tea

As I wind down with wedding planning and the parties and showers conclude, I'm feeling rather royal at a Sunday tea party. The white frock with a sheer top is as close to bridal as it gets. Feeling ultra girly, I adored the rosettes gathered at the bottom of the dress. No tea party is complete without a fasinator!

Stripe Swoon

Graphic designs have been huge this season and stripes have taken precedence in the fashion world. Though they  never really go out of fashion, stripes are reinvented by designers almost every season. The notable trend has me hooked. Nothing is easier than a cotton striped dress!
