Volume

Top: Madison (similar here & here), Denim: Rag & Bone, Flats: Chloe, Bag: Celine.

The sleeve is king this season!  Bell, ruffled, oversized, puffed-I’ve seen it all.

The queen of the statement sleeve is Caroline Constas and while I’m in love with each and every piece, my 5’1 frame is many times swallowed in the layers of volume. Because of this, I usually choose a top that’s not “over the top” with all the bells and whistles 🙂

Other volume for petite frames: Here, here, herehere & here)

Best of…..Shoes!!!

With sale season well underway, it’s a fantastic time to snap up investment shoes at a steal.  Most of the majors (Barneys, Nordstrom, Saks and Bergdorf) have marked down stock 30-45%.  Time to snag some goodies before they’re all gone!

Rips & Wraps

I love starting off the week with a fresh new scarf and as you can probably guess, Theodora & Callum was my accessory of choice.  I scored this piece on sale and am totally obsessed with the intense color and pattern.  With trips to Sydney and Vegas in August, I plan on bringing my new tie all as my partner in crime.  Cold plane-check, poolside vibes-check, most versatile piece in my carry on-check!

Sunday Stripes

Ever since our trip to Paris, I’ve been obsessed with stripes. Admittedly, I already had a fairly large section dedicated to them in my closet, but I can’t help adding new pieces, as they are a perfect neutral without being boring.  There’s something so classic yet so versatile about stripes.  They can take on an entirely new life paired with leather and ripped jeans vs. a girly skirt and sweet flats. Sunday felt like a stripe kinda day.
