A happy yellow dress for a fair price: The high low mix

Lemon yellow is super chic for spring summer. I love this dress (ps--not loving the way this is styled below (90's valley), but you can see the dress in all its glory)

what to wear with this:
chloe leather cork wedges

or how about these?
chloe mule nappa leather sandals

and these to finish the look:
oliver peoples west cabrillo polarized sunglasses

Sunglasses to snatch up

I love a deal and I especially love it when I find something amazing for practically free.  These sunglasses are fantastic, I ordered on amazon and they were on my porch in 2 days.  These are identical to the Celine sunglasses that I purchased earlier in the season in a different color.  Cheap and chic.

Celine version: The Audrey



Look for less:

celine lookalike

sunglasses (yes they are $9.99)

Bermuda shorts!

I have not been a short shorts girl since I was 20 years old so I am happy that Bermuda shorts are back! I think they are so flattering with sandals and a boxy top. Also, these are a dream come true for those of us whose veins suffered post baby! Check it out:

LA summer

Anyone who lives by the beach in LA knows that summer can be cold. This outfit is a perfect combination of cozy and chic.

 LA summer
rag and bone camden striped t shirt 
Karen walker Number 1 sunglasses
Gorjana wishbone necklace 
Petteri hamila cuff (this is such a good price--much more on other site)
Proenza ps1 medium suede bag 
Arizona birkenstocks 
Frame denim Le Garcon jeans

to throw over to stay warm:
gap mesh stitch cotton/linen sweater
(this is a great sweater--linen and cotton and good cut)

Embroidered Dresses and the look for less

I love this Isabel marant dress below but this is an investment and for summer I veer more toward chic and cheap options.  I like to save up for Fall/Winter investment items.  These dresses below are great options that give you the look without breaking the bank.  Also some look for less shoes.

Spring Dress by Band of Outsiders channeling spring in France

I love Band of Outsiders.  They are always outside of the box but with a flattering fit and gorgeous material.  This silk dress is a show stopper and made me think about France in the spring.

Spring Summer Set and a Napa flash back

I love Steven Alan for wardrobe staples.  The material, the fit and cut are always spot on. Once you have your building blocks you can add fun accessories and you are good to go.
