This fall I am SO loving this olive green color for dresses, vests, army jackets, sweaters — it’s so in!

I found this adorable BP woven shirt dress, which is a great transition piece from summer to fall, during the much anticipated Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  I’m so excited to finally make it’s long over due debut on crème! With the weather getting a little cooler this weekend, I would pair this with some tan booties and a leather jacket; perfect solution from day to night dress.

I paired this little number with Steve Madden Lace Up Nude Suede Sandals Heels, which are surprisingly very comfy and I walked all around Soho for this shoot (also shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize).

A few weeks ago, I did a mini fashion shoot with my friend, Jason Mize, who I mentioned in my last post! This was one of my favorite looks he did and I absolutely love the shot of Wayne and I.

This dress is A-MAZ-ing and the background just makes this photo – gotta love Lower East Side, for their eclectic artwork! I can’t find it on Lulus anymore unfortunately, but it is absolutely gorgeous, with the hand detailed white flowers, mesh netting and love the sexiness of the fit.  I paired the look with my favorite rose gold Dior Reflected sunniessuede pale pink block heels and ‘Saint Germain’ lips.

Love this dress for date night or it’s perfect for a bridal shower or rehearsal dinner!

I cannot believe Summer 2016 has come and gone.  Where did the time go??  Anyone who knows me, knows summer is my favorite season! It’s always sunny, everyone is happy, there’s always something fun going on outside – whether it’s happy hour, dinner on our terrace, long walks in the neighborhood or weekends at the beach!

I think we can all agree that this summers hottest looks and trends included anything white, striped, lace, pale blue and off-the-shoulder.  I think it’s safe to say, I have a thing for the off-the-shoulder look and hope to continue it throughout the fall, it’s just too cute!

Above is one of my favorite summer looks shot by photographer and friend, Jason Mize. Check out his blog here.  He specializes in Weddings, Couples and Lifestyle.  I met Jason, through my friend while he was shooting her magical wedding. He’s truly talented and does amazing work!

Love these floral pumps, they’re so beautiful and really pop when you add them with a solid colored outfit.  I love the variety of colors, which allows you to pair with so many different outfits.  These can truly dress up any look!

Harbor Date Night

Blog 11v1Blog 11v2Blog 11v3Blog 11v4Blog 11v5Blog 11v6Blog 11v7Blog 11v8Blog 11v9

Last night, Wayne and I took a spontaneous road trip for our date night to Harbor Point, Stamford, CT.  When I say this place was magical, it was just picture perfect, so quaint and truly how you would envision Connecticut; clear blue skies, followed by a beautiful sunset, wonderful drinks and seafood, and boats galore!

I chose a long sleeved crochet dress from H&M (old, similar: 1. here 2. here 3. here 4. here) which was perfect since we sat at a waterfront table by the live band at The Crab Shell.   I paired this summery staple with my favorite Catherine Malandrino wedges, Prada sunnies and Brown leather tasseled handbag.

I would highly recommend checking this restaurant out, right on the water, live band, happy hour, delicious selection of fresh seafood and pasta dishes!  Planning to do a few more trips to this adorable town which is a short drive from Manhattan while the weather is still nice, it’s the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Sunday’s Stripes

Blog 9v1Blog 9v2Blog 9v3Blog 9v4Blog 9v5Blog 9v6Blog 9v7Blog 9v8Absolutely loving this strapless flowy striped shirt! Perfect for a hot summer day, and guess what?! It is under $13 and fully stocked in all sizes at H&M!!! Pair this top with white jeans or distressed white jeans (Anniversary Sale!) or cute jean shorts and you’re good to go for a fun night out or day at a beach bar!

I wanted more of a nautical look this Sunday, so I paired this top with nude heels (more here, here, here) and bright red accessories:

  1. Bag: Rebecca Minkoff Red Studded Quilted Leather Should Bag (Old, for sale on Tradesy)
  2. Lips: MAC Ruby Woo

A few other pale blue and white tops and dresses I love right now from H&M: (1) here, (2) here, (3) here, (4) here

 

Stripes and Everything Nice

This off-the-shoulder dress is the perfect wardrobe piece for a summer outing and I am loving the stripes!  I wore this classic dress to a family BBQ this past weekend that we had at my aunt and uncles house.  I just love the ruffled, off-the-shoulder look, and it is everywhere this summer.  I’ve been loving H&M’s summer collection and here are some of my top picks for this off-the-shoulder look: herehere, here, here.

It’s very light weight and breezy, making it an ideal option for a hot, humid day.  The khaki green dress is also to die for.  This olive color will be a huge hit this fall, so this is next on my list for purchases!  Pair either color option with a cute pair of suede camel booties for the perfect fall outfit.  Some of my favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Chestnut Suede Booties, Prairie Dust Suede Booties.

I will be posting my top picks from the #nsale on Friday morning once the sale goes live to the public.  You can shop the early access by browsing the sale then placing what you want in your Wish List.  Just as a reminder if you are not a Nordstrom Debit or Credit card holder, the sale will be available to the public starting Friday, July 22 (3:00 AM EST) – Sunday, August 8 (3:00 AM EST).  This sale includes the newest fall fashion at a discount up to 40% off.

**Just an inside tip: If they do not have your size available, order any size and you can exchange your item once the product is restocked as soon as the sale ends.  You won’t want to miss this sale, everything goes back to full price on August 8!!!! Stock up on your favorite fall booties, sweaters, leather jackets, chunky knits, designer fragrances and cosmetics, handbags, etc.

Thanks for reading!

Stylish Sunday Sundress

Blog 7v1Blog 7v3Blog 7v4Blog 7v5Blog 7v6Blog 7v10My Sunday’s are usually full of relaxation and enjoying time with a close friend or loved one.  I have a section of my closet full of simple, yet beautiful dresses that help me get through my Sunday mani/pedis and make it to dinner and drinks with my man.

The best thing about dresses like these, they’re so easy to just throw on with a pair of flats or sandals, then transition into the evening with strappy heels and statement sunnies.

Almost any and everything you see this summer has the delicate embroidery on it and I just adore it. My dress I wore yesterday (similar herehere, and here) is so flowy and lax.  Some of my summer favorites with embroidery are here: Lulu’s Ivory and Blue dressLOVE LOVE LOVEOff-shoulder Midi dressRevolve Navy dressLulu’s Navy Dress.

My Accessories: Prada Sunnies, House of Harlow Wedges (similar: herehere), Lips: Clinique, Nails (Gel): OPI “Let’s Be Friends!”.

Goodbye, Spring. Hello, Summer!

Happy first day of Summer everyone!

Sand, sunnies, simple dresses and skirts are some of my favorite things about summer.  I recently bought this skirt (ON SALE!) from Lord & Taylor.  I had to have this skirt to say “goodbye” to Spring and welcome Summer with open arms!  The bright colored, feminine print make this a staple piece to wear throughout Summer and I just love how it is pleated and midi length which is perfect for work, for brunch with the girls and date nights.

I just love how well this outfit pairs with my fresh pink Peonies, my favorite YSL Lipstick #7 and my newest addition, Dior Reflected Mirror Sunnies.  I cannot explain how much I love these sunnies.  They could be my favorite pair yet!

I’m very excited to see what this summer has in store!

Xx, Creme de Lauren
