Black or gold? 

I usually avoid white clothes–it gets dirty too easy, I inevitably spill something on it, etc.–so this dry-clean only blazer was a bit of an impractical choice. But I find myself wearing it on a weekly basis. It has turned into one of my summer staples, great with dresses and with jeans.

Based on comments from friends, I should wear this easy and comfortable dress more often–three people told me I looked tall. At barely 5’4″, that’s something I never hear! The dress is still too long for me to wear flats, but wedges work just fine.

“Short girls don’t wear long skirts,” says my mom and every style advice column. But they are fun and vibrant, and, let’s face it, hard to miss this season. I love the colorful prints and easy elegance of the full skirt. This is my first attempt at a maxi dress, a skirt that I’ve pulled up and belted into a strapless dress. Even so, it almost reaches my ankles–not sure I’ll ever be able to wear it as a skirt without sky-high wedges! I felt girly, relaxed yet polished, perfect for rooftop cocktails with friends.

I stumbled across this fantastic alley while wallking around Gastown in Vancouver. The entire length was painted with grafitti from a few artists. I find myself wearing a breezy top with skinny jeans often, probably a little too often. The cutout shoulders might have been a little too casual for the work function, but I didn’t know we’d be staying as long as we did. What can I say, the dessert spread was amazing!

Will this be the last of the boots for the season? Hard to tell. I bought this sundress over New Year’s in NOLA and have been layering it all winter/spring. I’m sure it will get just as much wear this summer. This turned out to be a stylishly practical outfit. My day started off with brunch with a friend before we went to an art fair. From there, I headed to Queens for a football game. Yes, this dress hides my playing clothes, just in case I had to change outside. Which I did. “Are those pink socks? Are you playing football in a dress??” my team laughed when I arrived. Nope, I was ready to play in five minutes. Maybe we would have won if I’d worn the pink socks…
