Bauble of the Week

I included these Tory Burch earrings in a recent "Currently Coveting" post and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the bold ’60s vibe since. They’re a carefree way to add a bit of glamour to even your most casual looks next season.

The Verdict is In

I had fantasized about these shoes since I first saw them on the Tory Burch website and had a laundry list of items I could wear them with: that elusive white summer dress, white shorts and a blouse, black cigarette pants and a cozy cashmere sweater…

So, you can imagine how disappointed I am to send them back to Shopbop. I purchased my normal size 7 after reading numerous “true to size” fit recommendations only to find that they’re huge. (I kept checking the box to make sure that they sent the right pair.) I wrestled with ordering them again in a 6 and a 6.5 to see if either of those would work, but if I’m being honest, they’re not worth $300. I’ll give it another shot if they go on sale for 40% off (maybe I’ll even go for the striped pair). Until then, I ordered these. Apparently I’m just itching for a pointed toe and an ankle strap.

1 Dress, 2 Ways | The Wedding Guest

Between the wedding venues, dresses, cake samples and late-night Pinterest inspiration, nuptials are certainly stressful for the bride-to-be. But once invitations start landing in mailboxes, the stress is passed along to friends who are now standing in front of their closets wondering what to wear. 

Buying a new frock for each event isn’t realistic for most of us. It’s a much more modern - and fiscally responsible - approach to choose one beautiful, versatile dress. I’m fond of this brocade stunner from J.Crew that goes from destination wedding to formal affair with ease.

For the beach: Pair the dress with a raffia clutch (you could splurge on the Anya Hindmarch version or go with a ultra-affordable vintage one on eBay), a bold boho necklace and flat metallic sandals

For a formal affair: Refined shapes in punchy colors keep your look for being too stuffy. Try a pair of pumps in a matching color, introduce a contrasting color with your clutch, and top it off with dainty earrings and a cocktail ring

Perfect Pairings

I’d go so far as to say that a leather duffel bag was my best purchase of 2012. I chose this one and haven’t had to check baggage since. (It’s amazing how much you can pack into a weekender!)

Shop It: Tory Burch cosmetic case // See by Chloe weekender // Deux Lux weekender // Rebecca Minkoff cosmetic case

Coveting: Mint Shoes

Over the past year, I’ve added four pairs of mint shoes to my wardrobe: heels, loafers, sandals and sneakers. The hue may seem impractical, but it’s versatile enough to pair with winter’s evergreen then transition seamlessly to spring.

Mint & Gold: J.Crew flats // Kate Spade heels

Soft & Sweet: Dolce Vita flats // Diane von Furstenberg heels

Bright & Bold: Tory Burch flats // Pour La Victoire heels
