Statement Dress

Milly Dress (also available here and skirt version here), Express Heels, Stella McCartney Bag, Dior Earrings, Thierry Lasry Sunglasses

I love a good statement dress and this Milly number definitely makes a statement. I’m already envisioning wearing it this fall with a leather jacket and black pumps for date night, but in the meantime, I plan on wearing it to the last few weddings we have this summer. Some of my favorite dresses in my closet are by Milly (like this one and this one) and now this jacquard one. I don’t know if it’s the intricate detail, open back, gold accents or hot pink, but it’s everything I look for in a statement dress. A few other great options are this colorful ASOS one and this Trina Turk woven shift one.

Vintage Love Part II

On Julia: kate spade new york Top, Pants & Bag c/o, Club Monaco Button Up, Forever21 Heels
On Thomas: Jack Spade Shirt, Jacket & Pants c/o, Lanvin Sneakers, Tom Ford Glasses

Today I’m excited to share our second his & her look we styled with kate spade new york and Jack Spade (see the first one here). I was immediately drawn to these amazing floral pants and definitely wanted to use them in one of the outfits. I love a man in pink and luckily, T likes the color as well, so it worked out perfectly. We had such a hard time being semi-serious in the first pic (or I did!) because we’re usually always smiling, but it turned out to be one of my favorites :) Our styles are similar in the sense that we both gravitate toward timeless pieces but with a fun and playful twist. We loved styling these shoots for both kate spade new york and Jack Spade because they’re filled with those uniquely classic styles that you’ll have forever.

Thank you to these awesome people:

Grey Days

Express Top, Express Jeans c/o, Vince Loafers, Mulberry Bag, Maison Michel Hat

Happy Friday! Ending the week on a neutral note with this all grey look. I’ve always loved this simplicity of a monochromatic outfit, but the polka dots in this Express blouse and small black details break it up from looking too boring. Comfort is always key, but I never want to sacrifice looking cute and stylish. I usually put together a similar variety of this look during the week when I’m super busy or on the weekends while relaxing. I love that it works both ways. These Express jeans also fall under the “don’t have to sacrifice comfort for fashion” category and don’t break the bank since they’re currently under $40!

A big thank you to Express for sponsoring this post.
