Summer Wedding

I wore my new-ish black lace dress from Nordstrom to my cousin's wedding last weekend. The wedding took place at a beautiful castle in New Hampshire. The weather was perfect (maybe even too warm for some, but not for me - I'm used to Miami weather at this point). I wore all gold jewelry, including some new finds from my grandma's collection. I used Lorac Tantalizer over my St. Tropez tan for some extra sparkle on my skin for the special occasion. Summer weddings are definitely the appropriate time to experiment with colors, but I didn't have time to go dress shopping. Plus, I think black can be worn any time of the year. And, floral/lace texture on the dress added some summer to the dress. What have you worn to summer weddings this year?

Summer Work Wear Take 2

I love the combo of this striped dress I got last year from Ann Taylor with the newer Zara textured blazer. It almost looks like they were made for each other! And the combination of the two is perfect for summer with the lighter colors.

Polka dot dress & new work pumps

Ah, to be this tan again. I've been neglecting putting on my St. Tropez tanning mousse for the last few weeks - need to get back into that again. So, my Cole Haan Air Violet pumps that I bought last year as my "everyday" work shoe are starting to wear thin in the sole, so I bought the below Pour La Victoire mary-jane style d'orsay shoes as a more-fun replacement. Amazon had them for a great price a few weeks ago - as of this posting they are $81 down from $250 retail. I got mine for even less :) They are much more uncomfortable than the Cole Haan ones, but damn are they stylish.

Below is a photo I posed to Instagram - I have it set to private because, you know, privacy is good. But if you request to follow me I'll allow it :) I post pics of my dog mostly but WHO DOESN'T LOVE DOGS? No one, that's who.

Moto sweater + grey sheath

Someday I will make a post about my favorite purchases ever and I'm pretty sure this moto sweater will be on the list - unless by then it's disintegrated from over-use. I usually wear this sweater for non-court days at the office and casually, but I've seen some other attorneys wear the exact sweater to court so I did follow suit last week. Plus it was Friday and you know how I feel about court on Fridays (IMO it's more casual! Kinda...). Anyway, here's another look at my "greige" dress and how it looks more grey when you wear it with grey.

Big Kid Couch

I bought my first "real" piece of furniture that's NOT from Ikea.. a couch! It took me a while to get it delivered but I'd recommend it in terms of style and price so far. I can't attest to durability yet as I've had it for a few hours, haha. Macy's is currently having a sale so if you're interested - here it is!
Thinking about changing up the throw pillows for some color - my whole apartment is grey and black and more grey. I'm thinking a deep purple or deep teal but I don't want it to look too girly. Maybe even an orange or green? Suggestions are welcome! (And I'm referring to getting rid of the black and white checked ones for reference).
