The Look #23- The Best Little White Dresses To Wear This Spring-Summer #Oufitinspo #SS17

Hope you had a great holiday weekend! I’m so happy that spring has finally arrived here in NYC & enjoying the warm weather….One of my all time favorite things to wear in the summer is a little white dress & this season will be no exception. A simple white dress screams Spring/ Summer & can be worn season after season as it actually never seems to go out of style….

For those who like improvising, add a cool studded belt, a fringed bohemian style bag or leather booties to wear it in a cool way. Simple, sexy & confident is the way to go!

Here is the outfit I wore for Easter brunch with the family…..this is one of my go-to favorites & I just love the lace fabric & off the shoulder details. I also like how it can be dressed up or down or even worn over a pair of jeans for your weekend adventures….

The Look #19-“Ruffled & Ripped” White Tops & Dresses with Denim & Bright Handbags…. #Outfitinspo for Spring ’17

It’s been so warm and sunny the past few days in NYC!

4de87daf09e2b502b3ecbb7b597f0306

I’m getting so excited for the NEW SPRING SEASON & thinking about all the fun tops and pretty dresses to wear when the weather stays warm for good. I know everyone has their “go-to” looks and special timeless favorites that they come back to time & time again….For me it’s always been the pretty white tops & dresses paired with denim that really sets the mood for me for early spring. My closet seems to be filled with cotton, chiffon & lacy little white dresses and tops that I never seem to tire of & I always LOVE to pull them out again at the first signs of spring. I think this is such a classic and feminine look that always looks fantastic & perfectly accessorized with gold jewelry and edgy leather accessories mixed with pops of color.

The off the shoulder trend is still going strong this season….as well as bell sleeves, ruffles and one shoulder style tops and dresses. Pair your ruffled tops with ripped denim & cool leather with soft lace….

Here is a recent #OOTD I wore for a lunch date that I posted on INSTAGRAM.

The romantic look continues for fall 2016, this time adding an edge with washed out & ripped denim, metallic rock studs, leather & lace. The classic black Moto jacket & simple denim have been adorned with bold rose print embroidery & silver studs….
