scuba gear.

Skirt The Rules Blog; NYC fashion blogger; Baukjen Carlisle black and blue shift dress; L.A.M.B. black and white clutch; Gorjana & Griffin gold alphabet disc bracelet; Pour La Victoire Mai black patent wedge pump; zeroUV mirrored aviator sunglassesI can’t say that I’ve ever been scuba diving, but I find the whole idea of an underwater adventure completing invigorating.  When I put on this wet suit inspired dress, I felt instantly transformed.  I love the minimalist look: a form-fitting frock paired with simple modern accessories.  I feel ready for a deep sea adventure — as long as I don’t have to get my hair wet.

luxe for less.

Wonder tortoise link necklace; C. Wonder snakeskin skinny bangle; Gorjana & Griffin alphabet disc bracelet; Juicy Couture pave pyramid bracelet; Pour La Victoire Mai patent black wedge pumpsI hate to admit it, but I was one of the maniacs that stayed up until 4:30 AM for the release of the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target collections a few weeks ago. When the packages came in the mail, I couldn’t decide whether the sleep deprivation was worth it.  But once this outfit came together, I felt a little bit better about my life.  I’m all about creating luxe looks for less.  And while the real 3.1 Phillip Lim is still on my wishlist, I’m glad I get to have a few fun pieces from the designer collab to call my own.  Did you score any pieces from the collection?  I would love to see how you styled them!

Wonder snakeskin skinny bracelet; Gorjana & Griffin alphabet disc bracelet cuffThis past weekend, James, Tracy and I went on a cruise to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation and wearing this hot pink skirt for the occasion was a no brainer.  I kept things simple the first time I wore this skirt, but this time around, I channeled a bit of the Pink Ladies from Grease.  Part tough, part girly, and all for a good cause.

stripes on stripes.
