GET THE LOOK :: PALAZZO PANTS FOR SUMMER

palazzo-pant-trend-coco-kelley

Every time summer rolls around, I pull out my box full of those few articles of clothing reserved strictly for warm weather, and out come my favorite white, wide-leg linen pants. I’ve always found it funny how people are intimidated by this style - especially if they’re short like me – but the truth is that […]

    I’m 5ft and I love wide-legged pants. I usually pair them with tank tops since I’m so petite. The only thing with wide legs and petite frames is you’ve got to have a good tailor :’)

    I so agree with you, palazzo pants are so flattering.
    I love your choice of fancy pants, they always look so effortless and chic!
    They always look great in linen or a more fluid fabric, especially in neutral colours.
    Your choice of casual pants, in prints or a soft jersey are also great!
    You can’t go wrong with a palazzo pant, It’s a summer essential!

      Thanks for the alternate! There are tons of great camis out there – I just have the WORST time finding ones that actually fit me well without puckering, etc and I really love the tibi ones. Have you tried this one? I’m curious!

GET THE LOOK :: SUNNIES + HEAD SCARVES

head wrap and reflective sunglasses paris fashion week via wwd

I like to give myself goals for every fashion season – something to push me out of my routine and guide some of my purchases and style direction as the weather changes. So for summer? I’m thinking the combination of some really fabulous and bold sunglasses paired with mastering the art of the head scarf […]

    This is such a great idea to set yourself fashion goals for each season and trying to get out of your comfort zone by challenging your fashion routine. I love it and have to think of one myself too. I would probably start with a simple and modest version of the sunnies and scarfs combo. I really like the white hot pair.

    I love the idea of fashion goals! I get intimidated to try new things, and I like the idea of it being a “goal.” I really wanted to get braver about wearing hats this summer, because I love them but they’re not worn a lot. Why is it so hard for me to try a style that is out of the norm?? You inspire me to be more courageous with fashion.

    I always find that little accessory pairings are such a fun way to add a pop of color and a little uniqueness. Making fashion goals is such a great idea, I know that everyone once in a while I need the extra push to be more adventurous with my style.
    Love the retro pair!

    Love it! Perfect solution for my new summer hair that’s too short for a pony. And I’ve been craving some retro shades for a while, what a great excuse to go for it! Thanks for the inspiration!

GET THE LOOK :: DRESS UP YOUR {TIE} DYE

Growing up, if you had told me that I’d be back into tie-dye I wouldn’t have believed you for a second. But, thanks to the whole shibori trend, I’m totally digging on many of this print in many ways. However, as a city girl, what I’m really loving are the pieces that you can actually dress […]

    So sad that the dress you’re wearing from Nordstrom is already sold out in the petite sizes! I bookmarked the dress the other day and should have bought it!

    LOVE! I’ve always been scared of tie dye. I know, I know. It’s silly. That look with the Gold’s Gym tank has me dying for some! And seriously regretting disposing of my Thakoon for Target dress. ALAS.

GET THE LOOK :: ETHNIC CHIC

If I never hear the term ‘festival style’ again in my life it will be too soon, but there is something to be said for the overall aesthetic of this genre. Usually defined by bohemian, flowy tops and dresses in lace, embroidery and a more ethnic influence, this mesh of worldly influences can be quite beautiful… […]

    Love the bohemian look. Cost Plus usually has some nice, flowy tops and kaftans that I love to pair with a nice pair of jeans!

    I’ve been looking for those Dolce Vita shoes in my size everywhere! They are the perfect summer heel in my opinion.

GET THE LOOK :: THE WHITE SHIRTDRESS

get-the-look---white-shirt-dress-for-spring

There aren’t many pieces in the closet more classic than the white button-up – that I think we can all agree on. But how are you all feeling about the white shirtdress? I remember seeing Leandra bravely rocking hers at fashion week last September and thinking… I love it. But, it takes some guts (and […]

    What timing with this post. This weekend I was watching an interview with an older actress who was wearing one of these with black nylons and all I could think was that it looked like she is missing her pants and when she stands up her undies will show!
    I think a belt would go a long way, however, I do like the one maneater is wearing, the bow is very cute and makes it look more like a dress.

      I’m totally with you – and black nylons would make it look even more strange in my opinion! They are tricky and need to be done really well. The problem with a belt, of course, is that it shortens an already short piece, but there are some nice, longer ones that look less like a large shirt and more like a purposeful dress, which is what I’d lean towards – especially if you’re on the taller side!
