Win it >> Summer It Bag

Today we're talking bucket bags as I team up with two other blogger beauts to share six ways to wear this trend. And since talk is cheap, we're also giving away our bucket bag fav at the bottom of this post, filled with awesome accessories!

This Summer it was all about the bucket bag. From designer to discount, everyone was creating their own version of this trend! I fell in love with Old Navy's bucket bag because of it's soft pebbled leather, oversized tassel detail and perfect proportion, and I wasn't the only one. Many of my blogger favs joined the ON bucket bag party including Marissa of Style Cusp and Ashley of SideSmile Style

Zoo Day

This post is jam-packed so let me apologize in advance.

TGIF right?! Last weekend blew by, and some how this week was one of the slowest ones ever? I woke up on Tuesday thinking it was Thursday, even told a co worker "hang in there tomorrow's Friday, and they gave me the craziest look.. oops! Then woke up again on Wednesday convinced it was Thursday. Anyways back to last weekend, Saturday was busy busy but started with a Zoo day with one of my favorite people (and her awesome husband) Taylor Morgan!

The Striped Crop Top

I know I have been over dosing on stripes lately, and that you are probably so sick of it! I went to an event earlier this week and met a PR pro that I had been corresponding with for a few weeks now via email ... the first thing she said to me was "you're not wearing stripes?!". Then I knew the obsession had maybe gotten a wee bit out of control. I promise I'll try and scale back the stripes, especially this striped crop top, but I can't say goodbye to them entirely since they are quickly become one of my signatures (in addition to my red lip of course).

Anyways before I start switching out my stripes for other patterns, I'm determined to get you all abroad the striped crop top train by sharing
10 ways to wear a striped crop top!

Summer Vintage

I have an on again off again love affair with vintage. Sometimes I want something shiny & new, but other times I find joy in teaching old clothes new tricks! Today is one of those days -- I'm wearing a look that's nearly all vintage from head to toe.

Bumble Bee

I've been wearing black & white stripes non-stop lately, seriously, non-stop. There are all these rules about black & white stripes: horizontal ones make you look chubs, don't wear them with orange or yellow, blah, blah blah -- well today I'm breaking those rules, because life is so much better when you dress outside the lines.

Fruit by the Fashion

It's no secret that I am a big fan of the fruity fashion trend (I wear my lemon keds almost everyday) so it was only a matter of time before I doubled, no tripled up on the trend! Oh, and I hope you don't mind but I am going to toot my own horn for a second here (toot toot) because I boarded the fruity trend train last year (remember my season search for the perfect lemon dress?), first with a lemon obsession resulting in a dress, shoes and shorts but it happened once again when I stumbled into J.crew only to find the cutest orange dress in CrewCuts… yes, that's Jcrew Kids -- don't judge me.

White on White

If you have been following along you know the CMC forecast calls for white on white looks that are expected to last all summer long. Until no I have been mostly all talk, a white, colored & patterned look in Lulus, a LWD there, not to mention getting all goggly-eyed over a club monaco white feathered skirt, but today I'm putting my style where my mouth is with a white on white ensemble … Oh and Waffles is blog crashing, so he'll be pretty offended (and grumpy… well grumpier) if you don't read on!

Club Monaco Sneak Peek

Who's ready for Winter? Not me, but last week's Club Monaco Holiday Press Preview had me wanting to fast forward to the Most Wonderful Time of the Year. But until then, we can melt away in this Summer heat while looking forward to this killer collection.

LWD - Little White Dress

Forget the LBD today (and this summer) it's all about the little white dress and just the color white in general. I have never seen so much of this hue before but I've already declared this the Summer of White so the color craze is all right, I mean white with me!

Accidentally Audrey

Today's look was accidentally Audrey-Esque. I donned black and white stripes (per usual) and a red lip (of course) and spent a good 30 minutes on my hair (unheard of for this bun-loving-bedhead) before walking my thirty minute morning commute through the sauna that is currently New York City. Upon arriving to my office, I glanced in the mirror to see that my well orchestrated locks had somehow been magically replaced with a wild, frizzy fro -- thanks New York. I didn't panic,  but quickly tossed up my mess of a mane into a undone bun with bird's-nest inspired tendencies. After using up my to "emergency" bobbies, I resulted to a few paperclips that hopefully no one will notice, or miss from the office viola ... Accidentally Audrey.

Yellow Diamond

Today I'm giving away yellow diamonds! Okay, okay, that's kind of mean -- not real yellow diamonds, but something else pretty sweet :]

Bright Striped

So I know I declared this the summer of all white, but that doesn't mean I'm giving up my go-to black and white stripes for the season! So when the opportunity presented itself to combine color with my favorite pattern, I simply could resist.
I saw this skirt at Asos and knew I immediately fell in love with the combination of color and pattern play, but was hesitant about the silhouette. I am usually a fit and flare or full skirt kind of gal and rarely ever slip into a tight, pencil-like skirt, but made an exception for this striped beaut.

Orange Crush

I'm totally crushing on flowy skirts for summer, they are easy, effortless and conservative all while remaining fashion forward and functional! Plus they are perfect for those hotter than hot days we know are just looming around the corner
