Fit & Flare.








Dress: Anthropologie.
Handbag: Anthropologie.
Heels: Steve Madden.
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban.

I am obsessed with Moroccan prints lately. One day, I hope to visit the markets of Marrakech! Until then, I'll be buying all the Moroccan-inspired pieces I can get my hands on. Free People and Anthropologie have great selections right now. I love not only the print of this dress, but the bead detailing and the fit and flare silhouette--it reminds me of a vintage 1960's housedress. This dress would be perfect for Sunday brunch or church. Pair it with espadrilles and a cardigan for the perfect weekend attire.

The Perfect Jumpsuit.









Strapless Jumpsuit: TopShop.
Handbag: Chanel (vintage). 
Stecy Sandal Heels: Steve Madden.
Classic Wayfarer Sunglasses: Ray-Ban.

This fall it's all about neutrals and jumpsuits! If you'd asked me a couple of years ago, I would have never bought a jumpsuit because most were so unflattering, but they seem to have come along way. There are so many different silhouettes and fits, I'm convinced every body type could find a flattering style. The right waistline is key! Since I'm so petite, most waistlines fall too low, but this one is almost perfect and required zero tailoring! I wore this to the MAGIC apparel tradeshow in Las Vegas last week. I added a white blazer to make it more work appropriate and a pair of black pumps. This look would also be great date night attire. Sometimes I have the hardest time finding a good outfit to go to a nice dinner in that doesn't seem like I'm trying too hard. A jumpsuit is the perfect "I'm not trying too hard" piece while still being fashion forward. Go get one!

Wrapped In White.








Lace Jacket: Zara (similar here). 
Tank: Gap.
Skort: Urban Outfitters (limited availability here, similar here). 
Wedges: Dolce Vita (on sale here!)
Handbag: Chanel. 
Bracelet: Banana Republic
Sunglasses: Ray-Ban.

It's no secret, I love white. I'll be wearing it well past Labor Day! Neutrals always provide a great canvas to showcase accessories--like this vintage Chanel handbag. I'm so excited to finally own this having lusted after it for so long. My husband bought it for me as a wedding present. It's definitely more expensive than any bag I've ever owned, but we really wanted to get each other wedding presents that we would use a lot and hold onto forever. Maybe one day I'll have a daughter to pass it down to.  I'd love to start collecting one designer bag a year (a better investment than my shoe obsession). Hmmm...or maybe every anniversary?! HINT HINT... jk

Desert Neutral.





Dress: Target (old, also love this and this). 
Necklace: Francesca's (sold in stores).
Hat: Target (old, similar here)
Handbag: Rebecca Minkoff (sold out, different color here).
Gladiator Sandals: Nordstrom (sold out, similar here)

I love white for summer especially in the desert heat! This dress is simple, but versatile. I get so many compliments every time I wear this dress, but no one guesses it's from Target! I paired it with a chunky turquoise necklace to bring some color to an otherwise neutral palette.
