Luli & Me



A children's brand that I continuously find myself going back to is Luli & Me. Their designs are beyond darling and perfectly sugary sweet for girls. For the last 30 years, the family owned brand has been dedicated to delivering classic children's clothing. I find that Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, and The Best Dressed Child always have a wonderful selection of this beautiful brand.

A Swiss Skincare Secret


A friend recently introduced me to the Swiss skincare line, Alchimie Forever and I am seriously smitten. I have been using the products for just over a month now and my skin truly has never looked or felt more radiant. The antioxidant skincare is created by dermatologist Dr. Luigi Polla (love this profile on his daughters in Vanity Fair) and is dedicated to preserving the radiance of your skin while combating aging. My must-haves from the line are this gentle cleanser, this serum, and this cream. Your skin will thank you!

Monique on Moda

 
I truly could go on forever about all the reasons I absolutely adore Monique Lhuillier's Spring 2018 Collection. In fact, it is one of those few collections that feels like it was designed with me in mind. From the frothy lace to fabulous feathers to dreamy jacquard the pieces are truly exquisite ... Even down to the irresistible accessories like this belt and these shoes. I would love it ALL in my closet (a girl can dream!) and it is currently available for pre-order on Moda Operandi.

Alice's Wonderland

 
There is no denying that I am quite obsessed with British beauty and true tastemaker, Alice Naylor-Leyland. Thus, I was beyond delighted when I saw that Architectural Digest gave us a glimpse into her whimsical wonderland in the English countryside. I adore the way the interiors of her estate, Stibbington House, combines playful details with sophisticated colors and pattern. The end results is truly dreamy.

Head Over Heels: Marion Parke

 
Ostrich feathers and velvet bows .... I don't think I could love Marion Parke's Lainey Heel more! But, this shoe is truly more than meets the eye with Marion Parke's signature contoured insole (made of medical grade foam!). The luxury shoe label was recently founded by a podiatric surgeon with the hopes of creating supportive heels that wouldn't sacrifice style. Now you never have to worry about aching feet at the end of the night again!

Breathtaking Bride



I actually already covered this spectacular wedding, which took place at a beautiful French Chateau immediately after it was featured on Vogue.Com. However, recently I discovered some additional stunning photographs on the photographers website that I simply had to share. This may be one of my favorite bridal looks of all time ... a stunning gown and custom cape complete with box pleats and bows created by Amir Taghi. Swoon-worthy is simply an understatement.

Smitten with Sandro

There is no denying that I am seriously smitten with Sandro, as it is the perfect place to get pieces with Parisian flare. It has long been a favorite of mine (particularly for dresses) and I'm truly fortunate to have one in my neighborhood. Their Fall Collection just launched and is absolutely gorgeous. But, you should also know that they are currently having a major sale on their Summer styles and there are SO many incredible pieces over 50% off like this (I'm dying to find it in my size!). this, and this.

A New Cuyana Classic

I am seriously smitten with the structured shape of Cuyana's newest bag. The Classic Structured Leather Tote is a testament to timeless design and works everywhere from a business meeting to a preschool playdate (and everywhere else in between!). The new bag has a more architectural aesthetic than Cuyana's previous totes, making it even more chic and sleek. One of my other favorite things about Cuyana's beautiful pieces is your ability to personalize them (I always choose a monogram), but now they offer even more options!

I am truly such a fan of Zimmermann's incredible swimsuits like this and this. And this blue bikini (also available here and here) is seriously making all my swimwear dreams come true! From the subtle stripe to the undeniably feminine ruffle this suit is way more than just cute.

Interior Inspiration: Jenny Wolf

I am seriously swooning over every room in interior designer, Jenny Wolf's newly renovated New York home (see the entire thing here on Vogue.Com). From the perfect paint colors on every wall to the guest room complete with Scalamandre and Leontine Linens ... I absolutely cannot get enough! What fabulous interior inspiration to start off the week.

dCc Deal Alert: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 
Run, don't walk darlings ... the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here! What sets this sale apart from all the rest is the fact that NEW merchandise is marked down (including things like classic denim that would normally NEVER go on sale). Thus, making it the perfect time to stock up on your Fall wardrobe essentials. I love to use this sale for just that ... to purchase timeless pieces I know will never markdown again. Below are a few of my favorite things that will never go out of style. 




The Perfect Pair(s) of Denim ... - these, these, and these

Bodysuits are Back

Bodysuits are back in a big way and this one from J.CREW is pure perfection. I find that there is nothing more annoying than constantly having to re-tuck in your button down (especially when running after little ones!). This solves that problem, keeping you looking neat and chic.

MDS Stripes Resort 2018


It is no secret that I am seriously smitten with everything Mark D. Sikes touches. His timeless style is absolutely impeccable, thus it is no surprise I am quite a fan of his line, MDS Stripes. They recently launched their Resort 2018 Collection and I cannot get enough! I have always adored his clean stripes, but the styling in this line is perfection, as they have paired the stripes with gorgeous floral. A match made in heaven. All styles available for pre-order now on Moda Operandi. Run, don't walk, darlings.

Dress Obsessed

You know I absolutely can't resist a good shoulder bow (as evident here and here). Thus, I am truly obsessed with this gorgeous dress from the Marchesa Spring 2018 Collection. Can someone please wear this!? Or how amazing would it be to get this made in Navy for another event? ... a girl can dream!

Can't Get Enough Fall 2017 Couture

The Fall 2017 Couture shows in Paris this past week were truly everything I adore. Of course, I loved seeing the incredible creations of my tried and true favorites like Giambattista Valli and Ralph & Russo. However, I was most blown away by the breathtaking designs of two California-based brands, who both made their debut in Paris this week ... Monique Lhuiller and Rodarte. Simply stunning. I am just swooning thinking about the shows {and thank you Instagram for allowing us to all feel like we are there even without an invitation to the front row}
