current lemmings -- summer stripes & wedges


01 | Topshop high neck wrap crop top/bralet in white -- i really like the crop top in the high neck style. this has a subtle yet sexy crisscross in the front. also available in black. 
02 | Topshop scallop hem mini skirt in stripe -- love scalloped everythanggg! this is going to be a hot skirt this summer. also comes in white, black, and petite sizes.
03 | Halogen rena crisscross strap sandal in tan/leopard cognac -- the chunky low heel sandal is definitely in this summer. this is a great color and has a little leo action. also comes in an all black. 
04 | J.Crew small jewelry tray in ivory metallic gold -- an adorable tray to store all your dainty (or not!) jewelry. it would make a great addition to any vanity. 
05 | Andre Assous anie espadrilles wedge in black fabric -- loving the closed toe wedges that are buckle free! 
06 | MANSUR GAVRIEL crossbody in cammello -- a birdie told me MG just came out with a crossbody. i was like WHAT?! here it is, and already sold out in all colors online. isn't it just the cutest thing?! comes in so many colors. the red is also so gorgeous! hope it comes back in stock soon!
07 | Madewell striped knit dress -- i've been looking for a striped dress in a shift style with 3/4 sleeves. it's like this dress was meant for me! 

rock the summer stripes,

the scalloped skirt & neck tie blouse

i love scallops (clothing and food)! #nopunintended

i have a problem. every time i see a scalloped piece of clothing, i get very excited (obviously it doesn't take much). this scalloped skirt and neck tie blouse are great pieces for work but also comfortable enough to take you into date night. after work, add some colorful statement earrings/rings and a playful chained crossbody bag and you will be G2G (good to go). 

some tips for a date night look:

  • keep it simple, wear something comfortable (aka: not tight, revealing, low cut, or short)!!
  • all you need is a little blush
  • emphasize eyes with eyeliner -- cateye or the feline flick (if you don't know, just google it). no need for eyeshadow either. (eyeshadow? what? how do you put that on?!).
  • crossbody handbag = fuss-free
  • save the bold lip for another day
  • loose wavy curls always make a fun flirtatious look
