Maison Scotch Silk Stripe Shirt

Maison Scotch Silk Stripe Shirt

When it comes to fashion for women, few things provide finer polish than a gorgeous blouse. This silk blouse by Maison Scotch is just that! Topped with ornate beaded epaulettes, this coral and white striped shirt is the piece to dress up plain denim and your favorite flats. This top can likewise pair perfectly with slacks or khakis for a more business casual look. More subdued masculine elements like the granddad collar, breast pocket, and buttons give it a more relaxed vibe, even though the top is made of silk. Coral and white is one of my favorite color combos for the warmer months so this is a top I could live in all summer long. Would look absolutely lovely worn with turquoise accessories or nails!

alice + olivia Everly Poof Skirt Dress

I’m always on the hunt for a classic dress like this one from alice + olivia. One that is always appropriate but still fun enough any given weekend and special occasion du jour. I’m getting to the age where my weekends are packed with weddings, dinners, and countless other events with friends, and I usually rely on a classic dress to always look my best. This dress features a fitted bodice and a box-pleated skirt, so it’s conservative and yet a little flirty. Contrasting pleats and a peek-a-boo hem give it structure and sass. Let us not forget the refined and removable rhinestone belt, a great accessory should you not have a better one to swap out from your collection. A dress great for any social occasion.

T by Alexander Wang Linen Silk Jersey Tee in Cayenne

Whenever asked the question “if you could wear one designer and one designer only, who would it be?” I always answer Alexander Wang, without a doubt. Whether it’s his signature line, or the more casual T by Alexander Wang, everything is just so me. Practical fabrics, colors easy on the eyes, and smart cuts, it’s just city chic all around. Take this T by Alexander Wang simple relaxed tee as a perfect example. In a linen silk blend, this tee comes in a vibrant cayenne shade that can either be the focal point or supporting role in an outfit.  Perfect with your boyfriend jeans and sunnies for a weekend brunch, or great tucked into a maxi and paired with a fedora for a trip to the farmers market.  This piece is so versatile and cozy, you really don’t even have to think hard of what to pair it with.

Diane von Furstenberg Laramie Maxi Dress

Diane von Furstenberg Laramie Maxi Dress

This DVF maxi dress has been seen everywhere lately– retailer newsletters, fashion blogs, banner ads – and  there’s something telling me I just have to have it! The color and tribal print of this maxi are just so on point, as DVF always seems to nail. I must also add that I’m digging the 3/4 length sleeves which are nicely offset by a flirty slit up the side of the skirt. It’s quite refined too, made of silk and featuring a casual self-tie belt, the collar and buttons can be closed up or worn open to better suit the occasion. Oh Diane, why must you always do summer resort so well?

Amanda Uprichard Pocket Tee in Sky

Amanda Uprichard Pocket Tee in Sky

I’m back with another silk top – something I’ve been all about lately. Since the weather is picking up a little, I’ve been leaving the house sans trench or peacoat, opting for a lighter blazer or cropped jacket, so I’ve naturally been reaching for and looking to fun tops to pair them with. This silk blouse from Amanda Uprichard is not only in a fabulous sky blue color, but an awesome cut. Take a second look at the collar… there is none! The plunging v-neck is an awesome sexy twist on this classic short-sleeved blouse.

Milly Basketweave Print Dare Resin Chain Halter Top

Milly Basketweave Print Dare Resin Chain Halter Top

Monday brought some unexpected June showers to San Francisco, but it wasn’t something that a colorful number couldn’t pick me up from. This sleeveless silk blouse by MILLY screams summer holiday when worn with white pants, but I must say I’d love it just as much underneath a black blazer. Larger bold prints and halter necklines are generally more forgiving of bustier ladies, like myself, and are flattering without being too revealing or distracting. The chainlink strap detailing is an adorable and funky adornment, and I like the designers decision of keeping the cut classic but the finishing touches young. And how awesome is this bright fuchsia? This piece is so totally me.

Parker Tie Front Maxi Dress in Coral Zig Zag

Parker Tie Front Maxi Dress in Coral Zig Zag

There’s nothing quite like a printed maxi dress that exudes boho chic. I adore this one from Parker in an organic zig zag print incorporating shades of coral, brown, off white and cobalt. This dress made of 100% silk features an adorable neck tie detail and elasticated waist, which give the bohemian frock a finished look. I’d love to see this rocked with bangles, a headband and summery loose waves. Very much à la Nicole Richie or Vanessa Hudgens!
