Palm Beach Weekend

Palm Beach Weekend

Most women wear colorful clothes in Palm Beach, but despite my best efforts I’ve never been a Lily Pulitzer kind of girl (although I like it on others).  So a safe black and white is a good option.

I have a woven black clutch from Old Navy (I think) but I like this one with a strap in the $200 range.  These clutches with sea life on them are pretty fantastic.  I’m drawn to the one with the alligator, but the others could add a pop of color.  I also came across this clutch and this one  from Illinois-based Home Happens Here.

A white clutch could also work.  I like this Vince Camuto one and this one from Topshop.

There are very few wedge sandals that I like.  I try to find ones with a thinner heel so they don’t look huge.  The ones above are acceptable, although I like how they look in the picture above better than they do on the model. These come pretty close, but I prefer slip on wedges for practicality and because I feel like it elongates your leg.

For the dress, I really like this t-shirt dress by Allen Schwartz and this dress found on Zappos.  If you’re willing to spend a little more, this MILLY dress is very chic.

The item on the bottom right is actually a bracelet (not a belt).  I think it completes the look nicely.

Shoes for an evening out

I have been looking for new evening shoes to replace my study Nine West workhorse evening shoes, and I found these yesterday at DSW.  They are incredible.  I love the thin, tall stiletto, the lack of any sort of ankle strap (better for elongating your legs) and the little bit of glitz on the toe.  It looks like they’re also on sale from Off 5th.

I thought about adding some links to similar shoes, but there is nothing else that comes this close to perfection.

Your Friday Jam

Well it’s a beautiful day outside – one of those sit on the porch and tip back an ice-cold Shiner kind of days.  Hence, today’s Friday Jam is a sit on the porch and tip back an ice-cold Shiner kind of song… “$50 and a Flask of Crown” performed by Bleu Edmondson.

Your Friday Jam

I will be heading off to Nationals Park for the Washington Nationals Home Opener early this afternoon, so I am very much in a baseball mood right now.  Which explains this Friday’s Jam…

Put me in coach!

Tuesday Blues

Tuesday Blues

Long sleeve dresses are great for spring, when it’s still a little cool outside, but the AC may be making it cool inside as well.

I have this dress from Cache, and I wouldn’t wear it with pearl earrings because I think it’s too much with the gold at the neckline.  This lovely David Meister dress is one sale right now, and I also like this Felicity & Coco dress from Nordstrom, which is a little more edgy.
