Dress: Topshop. Belt: Armani Exchange. Handbag: Coach. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar from J.Crew). Sunglasses: Gucci. Rings: Stella & Dot, BCBG.

 

Today I’m sharing a look that I’ve already worn head-to-toe 4 times in the month of September . . . first in NYC with Gaby (as seen in the last photo above), second to work, third to a store event and fourth to dinner.  When I find something that works and that I feel great in, I’ll wear it to death.

 

The print on this dress slightly confused me at first because I couldn’t really figure out what it was, but I quickly decided that I thought it was really pretty and unique.  Plus, the dress fits like a glove, so I just couldn’t leave the store without it.

J. Crew Panama Hat, Crop Top, Cobalt Midi Skirt, Coach Mint Penny Bag, White Nine West Pumps

Hat: J.Crew. Crop Top: American Apparel. Midi Skirt: Aritzia (similar). Shoes: Nine West. Handbag: Coach. Rings: Stella & Dot, The Bay, BCBG. Sunglasses: ZeroUV.

 

This outfit combines many of my current favorite trends: a classic-looks-good-on-everyone panama hat, a showing-just-a-sliver-of-skin crop top, a feels-like-a-girly-girl midi skirt and a not-your-typical-nurse’s-shoes pair of white pumps.  I’ve had my eye on a Panama hat for two summers now and finally decided to purchase this great option from J.Crew.

 

On the topic of midi skirts, in my last post I mentioned that I purchased a fabulous hot pink midi skirt from ASOS. Well, just hours after sharing that post, the skirt finally arrived in the mail.  To say I was disappointed is a major understatement.  The shape was beautiful, but I was not impressed with the material or workmanship.  Back in the mail it went immediately, so unfortunately you won’t be seeing me post that skirt.  Oh well, thank goodness for good return policies!

Oliver & Piper Empress Statement Necklace, Club Monaco Mint Dress, White Cardigan

Dress: Club Monaco. Cardigan: Jacob (similar from Loft). Necklace: olive + piper (c/o). Bag: Coach. Shoes: Jimmy Choo (similar by Kate Spade). Rings: BCBG, Stella & Dot, The Bay. Sunglasses: Chanel.

 

The sparkle of this gorgeous necklace, the shine on my silver shoes and the shimmer in this pretty dress had me feeling a little dressed up for daytime.  My solution?  Add a slouchy cardigan for a more relaxed, casual vibe.  I would have loved to add a fitted white jacket or blazer as another option, but I’m still on the hunt for the perfect one. I have my eye on this little number from Club Monaco.

 

Thank you for all of the wonderful feedback on yesterday’s post about clean eating.  It was so interesting to hear how many of you have removed chemicals, preservatives and processed foods from your diets.  It was even more impressive to read about those of you who never really ate those foods to begin with.  Thank you for all of the tips, tricks and suggestions!
