3 Ways To Rock Jean Cut Offs

Expounding upon yesterday’s Post.. Jean Cut-Offs are great… but how the F do you wear them all summer while keeping the look fresh? Above is a simple break-down of how to acheive 3 different looks, revovling around the same summer staple.

Color-Blocker – Top: Otte NY [$150] . Bracelet: J. Crew [$78] . Shorts: Bsb Fashion [$60] . Heels: Aldo [$42]

Tied Up – Collar: Miss Selfridge [ $29] . Shirt: Equipment [$128] . Shorts: AEagle [$35] . Hat: ModCloth [$15] . Shoes: Wallis [$44]

Summer Staple: Denim Cut-Offs

So I am a true summer-child, I was born in the height of the season, and I live for long days and warm nights. However, this recent heat epidemic is almost too much for me to handle. I mean, after standing outside yesterday for 10 minutes, I was certain my Jimmy Choo’s were about to melt into the side walk, and the majority of my make up was running down my face — so not cute. The only solution I could think of (besides moving to Siberia), is to just embrace the lazy ways of summer and throw on some cut offs, bust out the sandals, and keep it easy breezy and (hopefully) cool in these sweltering temps. If I am going to go the shorts route every day, then I will at least need a variety of colors and lengths to mix it up [shopaholics justification], and so I have curated a lovely selection of fab cut offs prime for the summertime, and in a plethora of colors and prices for any budget. Enjoy! xoxo

Fourth of July BBQ Stylin’

Independance Day is one of my absolute favorite Holidays. It falls right near my Birthday (hellooo extended celebrations!), and it is right in the middle of summer so all activities revolve around drinking, grilling, water sports, and the great outdoors. PLUS short hemlines are encouraged — how could you go wrong with that?!? Above is my ideal 4th of July BBQ outfit, which keeps the wears pretty basic and really lets the accessories shine.

Style File: Miranda Kerr

I am such a fan of Miranda Kerr. I have had the amazing opportunity to meet her a few times in Miami and NY, and this girl is really a PERFECT 10. She is so lovely and humble, easy to talk to – no joke she offered me some of her food one time at the Mondrian in Miami, so stunningly beautiful, and she also happens to be one of my favorite style icons out there. She has such a spectrum of looks from bikini clad beach style, to red carpet elegance, and her everyday casual wardrobe always emminates such grace and seems so polished- even in jeans and a white tee. And she’s a baby mama– this woman can really do it all!!!! So Miranda, if you are reading this.. Hi, I love you, let’s go shopping together.. sound good? Great.

Happy Shoesday Everyone!

So this is what summer shoe heaven looks like to me. Bright colors, a PVC T-strap, a nice chunky heel, and a little Ombré to boot. Oh the things I would do to … with this amazing sandal. Do your feet a favor and pick up this quintessential piece of shoe perfection here or here.

On a side note, I am horribly sick and trying to recover from my Amaaaazing weekend in NY. More will come later this week. But for now lots of Tea, Rest, and answering work e-mails.
