I love the look of white dresses in the summer — it’s one of the only times you can get away with wearing a white dress and not have it look like a wedding dress. But, I also love the idea of using one of these for an unconventional, bohemian wedding dress {just add a few special wedding accessories and you’re done}! I love all of the Stone Cold Fox options – I have one of their off the shoulder tops {here} and it’s super flattering. White has been a common theme in my summer wardrobe and also in the summer-inspiration images I’m pinning: dresses and skirts and backless tops and crops {dying over this one}.

Also: Shopbop is having an extra 25% off sale right now! I had to buy these Vince booties – perfect with trousers or skirts for summer. Just use the code 25MORE at checkout to get your discount!

Lille, France

A few weekends ago we drove to Lille, France for a long weekend {it’s still so crazy to me that we live in a place where we can drive to France}. Lille is so gorgeous and sort of a smaller, super friendly version of Paris. The shops, food, wine, cheese, pastries, are all incredible and we even stumbled across the cutest cafe with two French guys singing the Louisiana blues {talk about niche}.

In true French fashion, many of the shops and restaurants were closed {many of them close or have very limited hours during the summer months}, but it wasn’t hard to find a good croissant and cup of coffee or glass of wine. We didn’t plan anything and just wandered around getting lost and discovering little corners of Lille. I also loved the people-watching! Everyone looks so effortlessly chic in France – no one wears distinguishable designers or labels, it’s all very tailored and good quality without being flashy and over the top.

If you ever get the change to go to Lille, go! Friendly people, good food, good shopping, and an easy holiday where you don’t have to plan too much because the whole city is gorgeous. Can’t wait to go back!

{P.S. What I’m wearing: backless top, Iro jacket, Rag & Bone boots, Saint Laurent bag}.

White Summer

ONE Romwe White Cami TWO Agent Provocateur Bra THREE Chloe Small Faye Bag FOUR L’Oreal Lip Balm FIVE Aqua di Parma Assoluta Spray SIX Frame Skinny Jeans SEVEN Ulla Johnson Kiki d’Orsay Heels

One of my favorite looks for this weather: distressed denim, an easy tank {with the tiniest bit of lace peeking through underneath} and the cutest beige heels ever. Also, I’m obsessed with that Chloe bag – it’s the perfect cross-body bag and the perfect upgrade from my Sophie Hulme one {now to save my pennies!}

May

May has been crazy busy: work, trading yoga for boot camp classes {so insane!}, and I’m randomly playing violin in a rock band – what? A quick weekend trip to Lille, France has been the highlight and I can’t wait to share more trip photos with you soon!

A few little snapshots of May:

01. Walking around Belsize park and this gorgeous wisteria caught my eye.
02. A beautiful homemade Peter Rabbit cake for a beautiful baby shower.
03. Loving my Bumble & bumble Surf Hair goodies. This stuff gives my crazy curls a perfectly messy look – I’m obsessed {and all of these products smell like the beach}!
04. A sneak peek from a long weekend trip to Lille {also a peek here!} A full post to come. {P.S. I’m wearing an Iro jacket and my trusty Rag & Bone Newbury boots.}
05. + 06. Tom’s Kitchen is my new favorite place for breakfast – their Brioche French toast with caramlized apples is YUM!

Hope you’re having a great week!
