*The first eyelet band is in a saucy location, so you’ll need a half slip with this dress. I’m wearing this one.
Memorial Day (and, ahem, my birthday weekend) marks the unofficial start of summer. It often feels as if I’m constantly counting down to my favorite season so that I can break out my arsenal of summer dresses. But can you really fault me for that? Lightweight dresses are the perfect canvas for layering jewelry like these rings from www.MoonstoneShop.com. I’ve been a fan of moonstone for as long as I can remember, but it was solidified when I visited Moonstone Beach in California years ago and spent well over an hour sifting through stones on the beach to find the iridescent beauties. I had intended to have the stones I found polished and set in a ring, but let’s be honest, going straight to the source for genuine moonstone jewelry is so much easier! The shop carries an array of petite rings that are perfect for layering a few statement-making pieces to sprinkle into your collection. You can also find moonstone earrings, pendants, and bracelets.

Two fantastic sales started today: the seasonal Net-a-Porter sale and markdowns at Tory Burch. I’m keeping my spending in check (house purchase and all), but if I were to snag one thing, it’d be these Elizabeth and James pom pom earrings. However tempting they may be, my money is going toward home items for the foreseeable future. I actually picked up these glasses with a $50 coupon the brand sent to me for my birthday. (Evidently I spend too much there.) They’re perfect for at-home margarita nights. And I have a collaboration with Minted in the works for new art for our house. I’m debating between the print featured here and this one.

Another week, another nautical look! I just can’t get enough red, white, and blue once summer is on the horizon, especially after spotting this gorgeous sweater at J.Crew. It reminds me a bit of Gucci, but at a much more affordable price tag. (Speaking of Gucci, I’ve started saving up for this bag. Eep! I’m only setting aside $25 per paycheck and any blog income, so it’ll take awhile. But it’s so pretty!) I’m also crushing on this pair of wrap sandals. They would look so cute with short dresses this summer like the one I just ordered.
