I finally had the opportunity to shoot this chic little number for you over the weekend, although it’s already seen its fair share of wear this season. The flirty swing and standout shade give it serious show-stopping quality, while the easy silhouette keeps it on heavy rotation in my wardrobe.  I’ve paired it with statement strappy sandals and simple accessories for an effortless day-to evening vibe, but this versatile piece is also the perfect palette for a extreme accessories or up-the-leg gladiator flats.

spring layers

spring-layering

The weather in New York City has been a bit of a roller coaster lately.  While sunny skies and my iPhone temperature reading have all signs pointing to spring, the air still seems to have a bit of a chill.  And since us NYCers don’t have cars to throw a jacket in for the latter part of an all-day outing, its important to be skilled in the art of layering.  Here’s what I wore yesterday for a day of shopping and snacking around Soho.

A maxi dress is a spring staple for me.  It’s a no brainer base layer and feels like pajamas, yes please!

Not quite toe-baring weather, I threw on my leopard print ankle boots (chunky heel-clad for stomping around town).

A denim button up is the perfect in-between layer.  Its thin enough to go under a snug jacket, but works equally well to shield your shoulders from random winds or keep you warm while walking on the shady side of the street.

My spring layering ensemble would not be complete without my trusty leather jacket.  It just works with everything and the not-too-thick leather makes it a great transitional piece.  You might also consider a cotton anorak in go-to military green.

If you’re already able to wear full on spring garb, lucky you. Bookmark this post til next year ;-)  If not, happy layering!

best dressed wedding guest : take two + sample sale dish

best dressed wedding guest

Our last post was inspired by the many wedding engagements filling our calendars this spring and summer.  So happy for our friends! We decided to play dress up over the weekend and give two looks a test run that we are considering for some upcoming nuptials.  What do you think?

Shopping for dresses has been such a treat.  (Can’t wait to shop for the big white one!) We’ll leave you with our two rules for being the perfect wedding guest, besides buying something expensive from the gift registry…

First, consider the wedding’s location, theme, colors, and vibe when shopping.  A lot of time and thought was put into this day, so give your look similar attention.  Be festive and get glammed up!  Second, be comfortable.  There is nothing worse than having to sit out while everyone else is on the dance floor because your shoes are pinching your feet.  Give them a test run before the big day and if you must, sneak some flats into the ceremony.  A bejeweled thong sandal is okay.  Bare feet are not.

Enjoy wedding season!

best dressed wedding guest : get the look for $350 or less!

wedding city

A city ceremony calls for sleek sophistication.  Go for graphics and subtle shimmer in your dress and accessories. wedding islandf

For island I-do’s, bright colors and prints are an ideal option.  Accent with bold accessories like oversized chandelier earrings and a clutch with chunky horn hardware.
semi-formal fete

Try a romantic twist on the cocktail dress for a semi-formal fete complete with fluttery hem and satin bag.  Or take the look further with a longer length.  A relaxed silhouette and easy fabric keeps it from crossing over into formal wear.

We’ve been in love, for some time, with the print-driven designs that SUNO churns out season after season.  So with sale items as low as 70% off (ending today!), we’re busy plotting our purchases.  From soft and flirty frocks to edgy numbers in hemlines of all lengths, there’s something for every girl and every occasion.

Snag them while you can.
