father's day

I don’t know about you, but every year when Father’s day rolls around, I wind up racking my brain about gift ideas.  And then all of a sudden, it’s a few days before the weekend and I find myself scooping up something predictable  (for my Dad, it’s typically music related).  I’m clear about the fact that no matter what I give, he will like it.  It goes with the territory of being his one and only daughter.  But this year I wanted to be proactive and start thinking early.  Since Dad’s come with all different interests, I compiled a list which will hopefully inspire you to do the same!  Happy Friday!  xx jenny

Because maxi dresses are the quintessential item for Summer, the recent temperature spike has found me wearing mine.  Nothing says Summer like a dress that’s as light as air and beach chic ready.  The one I’m wearing is an old gem from Rilller and Fount, but this similar style from Mango is a solid update, along with this one from Indah, this one from Velvet, this one from Lovers + Friends, and this super affordable option by ONE by Pink Stitch.

Style Tip:  For dresses that are backless, pick up Braza adhesive tape which will keep you in place and secure.  I swear by it and it has become an essential in my closet.  Use two per each breast for extra support.  I do.  

SHOP IT: dress: Riller and Fount (click on pink links above for similar) // sandals: Ancient Greek // hat: Forever 21 // bracelets: Marissa Haskell, old (similar here and here)

cool & cool

mango

As far as I’m concerned, Summer is basically here which means lightweight dresses and sandals are creeping their way up to the front of my closet.  I stumbled upon this Mango dress and although it was a departure from my usual floor length maxi silhouette, I thought it would be perfect for days when you need a light dress that’ll keep you cool and well – cool.  To toughen it up and personalize, I added a black moto jacket for a pop of edge.  But for warmer days, I’ll switch it out for denim.  I also kept the shoes nude to elongate my (very pale!) legs, since sometimes black stops the eye, causing legs to appear shorter.  This dress is sure to have mileage straight into September (I’ve already worn it 3x) and the price point cannot be beat at $79.99!  Mango has tons of great styles if this one isn’t for you, all at affordable prices so shop to it!

SHOP IT:  dress: Mango (similar or similar), jacket: Sfera (similar), shoes: cole haan (similar or similar), sunnies: Ray Ban, bag: Chloe, bracelets (from top to bottom): J.crew (similar), Marisa Haskell, vintage, vintage, lip: Bite (pomegranate)

summer kick off

One more week until the unofficial kick off to Summer and you can literally feel the seasons transitioning once Memorial Day rolls around.  Even if the weather hasn’t fully shifted, there is just something in the air that changes.  Which begs the question, what am I wearing to the BBQ’s, picnics, cocktails at sunset, boat rides, shindigs and parties to kick things off?  I’m thinking super cute transition items that say, “I know it’s still not quite Summer yet, but here’s a little teaser.”  A few ideas that will take you from now until Fall…

SHOP ITcork clutch // panama hat // peasant top // shirtdress // denim shorts // floral jumpsuit // cheetah espadrilles // illesteva sunnies // cheetah espadrilles // lightweight scarf
