'Enjoy The Honey-Heavy Dew of [Summer]'


This was THE first hot day in NYC (there'd better be more as it has now resorted back to being cold and dreary).  I actually didn't mind the dewiness on my face, and I'm not mortified to post it! I'll take sweat over frostbite any day!!

This is my second favorite skirt.  I've posted this color here and here, and I'm so glad I found this navy one at a sample sale (since I couldn't find it anywhere else).  Which color do you guys like the best?

I've noticed I've been reaching for these grey Calvin's at least twice a week.  I'm so glad I kept them as I had ordered the black pair but Bloomies sent me these by accident.  Hey, marked down from $325 and getting them for $117 sort of kept them in my closet.  And glad I am of it.  They go with absolutely everything! I'm still lusting after the black pair, either these or these will do, but I'd have to get them for close to $100 to justify the purchase.



I positively LOVE this sweater! I first saw it about 6 months ago on a blogger but couldn't find it anywhere. Then about 3 months ago, I happened into H&M, and there it was hanging on the rack, fully restocked!  Oh, thank you H&M!

I've seen a couple of you ladies wearing this silver coated sweater from H&M.  How much do you love it?

What I'm Wearing:
Skirt: WHIT
          Orig.: $298.00
          Paid: $150.00
Sweater: H&M
Shoes: Calvin Klein Collection Remi
Necklaces:  Juicy, Forever21 Sparrow
Rings: YSL

I'd love to thank Shirin of Miss-Chief (isn't that a great blog name...we all have created mischief in our bank accounts, now haven't we?!) for awarding my little blog the One Lovely Blog award.  Her style is classic, effortless and chic so check her out and show some love!

  32. youshoes are very pretty, and silver are way more interesting than black (black shoes are go with everything but you just said this shoes go pretty much with everything). Very lovely and comfy and skirt (and naavy - such a great colour). I love how grey/silver sweater looks on you, it goes so lovely with your face!

  33. I love this jumper!
    I was searching for a similar one too and found one at Zara.. same colour, same shiny look but unfortunately the sleeves are designed in a weird way (too wide and too short)
    so, I think I'll return it :(((
    I loved yours but it's out of stock..

    I am following you now, wanna check out my blog?

    have a wonderful weekend! :)

  38. Love love love the jumper. I bought a similar one at Primark in London as it looked just like the H&M and Zara ones, but cheaper. I will try to do a post with it with a skirt and flats like you did as it looks simple yet still stylih. And by the way, i'll let you know if i find the right Mac red lippy.

  88. OMG! You're an accessories girl - I love all of them, not only these but everything I've seen on you while browsing through your blog. I personally live for accessories so imagine my delight. I love this shape of skirt and navy is probably the best color ever. The sweater is also cool; I love this type of sweaters, the slouchy type that just "happen" to reveal your shoulders. Looking super good!:)
