Fashion, You Make Me Blush!

There is a tropical storm racing up the east coast, which unfortunately keeps this fashionista indoors and away from the beach.

Although this past week hasn’t allowed me to tan, a.k.a. get more freckles, it has allowed me to online shop and put together a summer wish list.  Here are a few of the things I am looking to add to my wardrobe.

Aqua Black Maxi Racerback Dress

Aqua Color Block Dress

Forever 21 High Low Skirt

J. Crew Bubble Necklace

J. Crew Striped Crystal Bracelet

J. Crew PeepToe Kitten Heels

Bloomingdales, J.Crew, Ann Taylor, Oh My!  I have found some lovely dresses and accessories that are GREAT for Summer, Fall and Spring.  The blazers from Bloomingdales are perfect for all seasons; if you wear them in the Fall and Winter just remember an extra jacket to stay warm if you are in cooler climates.  I hope these pieces make you blush and crush!

Bloomingdale's Aqua Sequined Blouson Dress REG $248.00 SALE $186.00

J.Crew Diana dress $395.00

These two dresses are PERFECT for a Hampton’s wedding.  The first dress is FULL sequins for a more adventurous soul and the second dress is a silk dupioni dress that will be forever timeless.  Beware!  If your wedding is taking place outside, the J.Crew Diana dress would be more appropriate.  It will also look very natural against an outdoor backdrop.

Bloomingdale's Aqua Black Fitted Girlfriend Blazer $88.00

J.Crew Candace dress in ink dot $148.00

The blazer is a great accessory to make this J.Crew dress into an appropriate internship outfit.  Without the blazer, it is a great summer party dress!

Bloomingdale's Aqua Navy Fitted Girlfriend Blazer $88.00

Bloomingdale's Aqua Ruffled Scoop Neck Dress $88.00

This dress-blazer combination is similar to the one above, but different.  When I see this dress without the blazer, I think more “would wear on a date.”  The ruffles on the neckline and the cinching at the waist are flirty and flattering.

Summer Time is HERE and Tank Tops are what I am Coveting!

Oh, sunshine!  Oh, sand!  Oh, ocean breezeee!

This summer, I am looking to spending my free time at the beach with friends and family. After the long cold winter, I am thawing out and ready for dresses, cute skirts, adorable sandals, but most of all…GRAPHIC TANKS!  I have one from my sorority’s Bid Day 2011 and I love it!  It is perfect to throw on to run errands, go to the gym, or be a beach cover up.  As I feel more in love my ONE and ONLY graphic tank, I walked into the glorious Forever 21 by my university and was pleasantly surprised to see that this summer’s line was jam packed with graphic tanks.

Before I share some of my favorite tanks, my sure you are SunSmart and lather on the protective sunblock.  No one looks cute when they are burnt to a crisp.  (I apply 100+ sunscreen – the honest truth!)

Here are some samples of my favorites:

Kermit Racerback Tank $13.80

Nerds Are Hot Tank $9.80

Speckled Colorblock Top $12.90
