Nadja Printed dress, $268. This dress combines some of my favorite things, a bow, a v neck, and the color palette. The fact that it is not loudly Lilly (i.e. not hot pink and neon green) means that I can wear it out in New York City without soliciting a lot of dirty looks.
As I've said on here before, one of my biggest gripes is my chest. (And before y'all start telling me how lucky I am and how blessed I am- have you ever tried to shop for a bra or swimsuit top in size 32F? Not easy or fun.) I absolutely cannot wear anything that is strapless without looking like a $5 hooker. (Hence the love of V neck dresses.) Please tell me why Lilly just couldn't make this dress with straps? I heart it so much and it would be in my closet 5 minutes ago if only it had straps.
Tori Dress, $268.
Moving away from dresses and on to shoes. I had a really cute pair of pale metallic gold J. Crew flat sandals that got very worn. I was going to replace them with a pair of Platinum Jack Rogers, but when I went to try them on, I was shocked at how uncomfortable they were. Since then, I have been on quest to find the perfect pair of flat pale metallic gold sandals. That color goes with everything. These two are my frontrunners:
McKim Sandal, $168.
Jackie Sandal, $158.
Here's hoping one of these two is more comfortable than the Jack Rogers one was.
Now on to tops...Bidi Tank colorblock, $58. Cute, basic, fairly inexpensive and can be dressed either up or down.
A cute unboring basic. Percy Top, $88.
Meri Top Printed, $158
and Embroidered, $168.
I love both tops, but am way in love with the coloring and detail of the embroidered one. It would look so great with dark jeans or a denim skirt with the above sandals, and, of course, pearls.
