Summer Orange and Polka Dot Heels

Screen Shot 2016-06-03 at 7.25.50 PM

While everyone’s preparing to fight the upcoming heat waves, I’m just hoping San Francisco summers will let me go jacket-less at night time.  As a fashionista growing up on the east coast, I know what it’s like to ruin an outfit with necessary sweaters and coats.  That’s why on these beautiful summer days, it’s time we truly take advantage of wearing our favorite sleeveless tops unimpeded by any other piece of clothing.

Check out a couple of these hot summer orange items and enjoy the shorts-weather while it lasts!

Designer Styles to Add to your Wardrobe this Summer

Creating your wardrobe is like planning a party.  Think of your tops, your jeans, your shoes, your bags as guests!  To get the best party, you need a mixture of guests.  The social extraverted ones bring everyone together and the introverted ones provide an equilibrium to all the talking and excitement.  You need the talkers and the listeners.  In your wardrobe, you need the loud statements and the subtle beauties.  When you’re wearing jean shorts and a neutral henley top, all you need are a few loud statement pieces like hoop earrings or a diamond necklace to get that perfect party equilibrium!

Balance the Classy with the Edgy in all your Summer Looks

Screen Shot 2016-06-16 at 9.06.28 PM

Another way I like to make my predominantly feminine wardrobe a bit edgier, is with a stack of silver rings!  Just because you’re wearing pink lipstick, pink shoes, a pink skirt, and pink shades, doesn’t mean you can’t wear it with a black chocker or a some chunky rings and black nail polish.

Have you ever had a combined party: two people celebrating their birthdays for example? I love to do the same thing with my outfits: wrap two parties into one.   It might be an all classy and girly cocktail party at first glance, but then when you take a closer look you see that there’s a whole other party happening, and it usually involves an oversized watch, too many silver jewels, and dark nail polish.  So go ahead, experiment; find the perfect match between your sexy and sweet, and your edgy daredevil.

Love,

Okay sure with the little black dress you’ll probably want some awesome chunky rings, a pair of dazzling high heels that you’ll hate by the end of the night, a touch of lip balm, a pair of hanging earrings to tuck your curls behind, and that bold, colorful, statement clutch!

Happy Friday Y’all!

Love,

Get the Most from your Summer Pastels

Visiting Coit Tower

The summer is great for many reasons, including our transition from the rich colors of winter to the softer more feminine pastels for summer.  When I’m planning an outfit, I like to base it around the dress.  Choose your pastel color dress of choice then add your summer accessories: your white hats, your white sandals, your silver jewelry, and big and bold shades.

Weekend Outfit of the Day

One nice thing about going home for a visit, is having my mom here to take pictures of my outfits.  Today’s look features a half-denim dress from Armani Exchange with a black belt (courtesy of my mom) from BCBG Max Azria.  I decided to go with some bold accessories, namely the chunky necklace, chunky watch, and bright pink bag.Photo (2)  Photoshoes: Miss Sixty, purse: ALDO, necklace: Nordstrom, watch: Haight Jewelry

What to Wear on Canada Day

It’s Canada Day! Some of you may be headed to a Canada Day party and thinking to yourself, what should I wear? You could be a walking stereotype and wear red and white…or you could diverge out onto your own path.  Or you may be thinking, I live in America…the celebration isn’t for another four days.  But whether you’re Canadian or not, there’s no reason why you can’t celebrate.

So here’s your guide to celebrating in style.  Before choosing your shirt/pants/dress, choose the alcohol of your choice.  Now that the most important decision is out of the way, let’s get down to styling tips.  If you’re going to be standing outside watching fireworks, it’s best to cover up so you don’t get eaten alive by mosquitos.  Throw on a pair of your favorite medium wash jeans (skinny or flair…either will work) just make sure they are not too long for you (#shortgirlproblems) because chances are you could be standing on grass or dirt while watching the fireworks.

Second, choose your top.  Cleavage is great…unless you’re a guy…showing man boobs is definitely not a good idea.  Just remember to bring a sweater because Summer weather isn’t always predictable at night.

Next, it’s time to pick your shoes wisely.  Wearing a pair of skinny heels may not be the best idea if you’re walking on grass because you’ll either be sinking into the grass every step you take, or walking on your tippy toes.  Then again, if want to keep your look stylish, heels are the way to go.  Try a pair of wedges because they will let you walk smoothly across any kind of surface…(even a table surface…depending on how crazy your celebration gets!)

Keep the wine flowing, the firecrackers cracking, and the s’mores roasting, and you’ll be in for a good night!

Wishing all of you the very best Canada Day!

Summer Must-Haves

Created with the StyleChat App

Summer’s the time to bring out your white jeans or white skirts, your bright pastel-colored accessories, and your chunky jewelry.  Trade your sweaters in for some new off-the-shoulder crop tops in vibrant blues or feminine pinks.  The above image features three fun elements of pink: a pink Aldo purse, a silver and pink chunky necklace from Swarovski, and some light pink nail polish to tie it all together.

We’ve got a big chunky watch to add some extra flavor, a pair of dainty multi-colored butterfly stiletto heels to make your legs look miles long, and a pair of Ray-Ban Clubmasters to give you that extra cool factor!

Cheers,

J. Molly
