{Glam} Summer Layering

8T0A9513

Have you ever bought something at a store with 100% no idea how you would wear it once it made its way back to your closet? I was standing in a Banana Republic dressing room totally in love (love at first sight type of love) with this green knit top. The problem? I had no idea how to wear it! Yet, there I was, at the cash register, receipt in hand. Ladies and Gents, I just broke #1 Golden Rule of shopping: “Don’t buy it if you don’t know how to wear it.”

You know what? I wanted to wear it so badly, I just knew I could make it work. I stared at my closet for what seemed a full day. Dust began to accumulate on the top of my head. Exaggeration? No way. Suddenly it came to me. (And, of course the light bulb in my closet turned on simultaneously.) My knit tank would become my new favorite summer cover up! I loved styling it with my favorite maxi – it keeps me warm when the temperatures cool down at night and is the perfect layer for strappy dresses not quite fit for the office.

{Glam} Neutral Note

8T0A9412

We’ve recently seen it on the runways of Marc Jacobs, Chanel, and even Ralph Lauren. This hot summer trend is a khaki nod to a safari sentiment mixed with a bit of military.  I pulled out a vintage Diane Von Furstenberg of mine and matched it with the most important accessories of summer, neutral flats and…ice cream! Because…wait for it, today is National Ice Cream Day! Please celebrate accordingly.

Knit and crochet tops and dresses have quickly become my favorite go-to trend this summer. I love the way the material drapes and the versatility that it offers. Pair it with jeans, over a dress, or…well, with any season! It’s almost as if your fall or winter sweater got a bit jealous and went undercover to try to sneak into summer closet.

{Glam} Happy Hour

I don’t know if it is the over-sized polka dots, the retro vibes, or the feminine Minnie Mouse-esq feel, but this dress has become my recent go-to. It’s the perfect day-to-night piece for the office to a happy hour or date night!

{Glam} Coffee Talk

There is a magnetic and contagious energy that fills the air as 3:00 PM rolls around on a warm Friday afternoon. You look down at your phone, open the weather app, and see sunshine on sunshine on sunshine. You rack your brain to fill your schedule with outdoor activities and sleeveless tanks that have been begging to be worn.

Two weekends ago I had the chance to shop Sewickley (a local Pittsburgh suburb) with my aunt, and I fell in love with basically every store I stepped into. It became very dangerous very fast. I left just a mere two hours later with each hand filled with a bag or two…and a smile on my face. Saturday shopping sprees are the best medicine.

With my new tribal tank in hand, I was excited to style it and #GetGlam. I dressed it up with a grey maxi skirt and balanced the skirt with a lace plunge bralette to connect the boho vibe. This #OOTD is ready for a day or night out. Throw on a light cardigan and push up your sleeves for a night out on the town. My plans this weekend? Dinner out on Friday with the beau at a new restaurant, and this outfit is first on my list!

{Glam} Florals for Spring

{Glam} Florals For Spring

“Florals for spring? Groundbreaking.”

The silver-haired queen and Editor-In-Chief of Runway Magazine may have not approved of this consistent spring trend, but for the rest of us, it’s a easy win.

Florals are one of those trends that’s tried and true, and that never seems to go out of style. Whether your closet is overflowing from over-sized, gregarious and abstract florals or feminine and intricate buds, you can count on your #OOTD to be a hit.

{Glam} Boyfriend Jeans

How To Wear: Boyfriend Jeans

It’s finally warm enough to bare arms. The top, a vintage find, was part of a two-piece gown. Too fancy for my closet (black-tie galas are not in my near future), I paired down the feminine feel with a pair of boyfriend jeans. This unlikely pairing makes a chic and effortless look. Next step? Chunky heels to balance out my over-sized denim.
