Work Wear | Lace & Jade Green

This lace top has very quickly become the most worn item in my wardrobe! I seriously can't get enough of it. It is perfect for work but also works great with jeans on the weekend. I grabbed it during the Nordstrom sale, but luckily they do still have it in stock! It also comes in a blush color and fits true to size.

You've seen my jade green midi skirt on the blog before - it's another wear-to-work staple. It's old, but I found a very similar one that I included in the widget below! Paired with this lace top, it just feels like a perfect outfit for a work day as we wrap up the summer. Midi skirts have been saving me from the heat all summer long!

My accessories are old, my heels are some of my favorites - they are Kate Spade mary janes - but I found two similar pairs that I included below. What I like about these heels (and the two I linked up) is that while they are Mary Jane's the strap sits very low on the foot, keeping the elongated line you normally get from a high heel. Ie. your legs look long!

I'm keeping this post short and sweet today because, frankly, I've been feeling burned out lately. Work has been absolutely insane the past two weeks and I am gearing up to start a 7 week trial mid-September. That combined with all the planning for New York Fashion Week and I've been feeling a bit overwhelmed and like there is not enough hours in the day. I definitely don't want to miss any posts on the blog though, as I love getting to share outfits and fashion tips with you all. If you've got any good tips on how you deal with stress and simply being too busy, please let me know!

Weekend Wear | Floral Maxi Dress

 This may be one of my favorite non-work outfits of all time. I am completely obsessed with this floral wrap maxi dress. Somehow it manages to feel casual but fancy at the same time. Plus you get the whole "when I walk my dress flows around me like a total boss" thing; so that's basically always a fashion win haha.

Seriously though, I cannot say enough good things about this maxi dress. From the wrap detailing to the fact that it is lined to the knee only so the bottom is sheer, this dress is perfection! I also like that while it is a floral print maxi dress, the floral isn't overpowering. The grey and pale pink tones are understated.

I have been wanting this necklace for MONTHS, having seen it on so many bloggers instagram feeds. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered it a few weeks ago and could not be happier! The necklace is exactly as I expected - from the way the three layers naturally fall on your neck, to the quality of it - I would definitely recommend this piece of jewelry. If you watched my instastories while I was visiting my family in Ontario two weeks ago you may have noticed that I wore it literally every single day. #AddictedMuch?

In other news, I am in full-on planning mode for New York Fashion Week. I'm going to be there September 8 - 12th. I would love to hear any suggestions you guys may have about the best coffee shops to go, best restaurants, and any boutiques I need to shop at! Things will be hectic running to-and-from fashion shows, but I am determined to sneak in a bit of New York exploring while I am there. I'm even planning on getting up really early one morning so I can sneak in a run in Central Park before the day starts. ... We'll see if I succeed in actually making that happen haha.

Shopping | Summer Dresses under $100

The fact that summer is almost over is hard to believe. The silver lining though? Summer sales! Last week I posted the best wear-to-work sale items for summer, and this week I wanted to talk about summer dresses. With all the summer sales going on there are some amazing deals to be had on both wear-to-work dresses and fun summer weekend dresses. 

In fact, I was able to find a TON of amazing dresses that are now under $100. Many in fact are under $60! I have linked up my favorites below. These dresses 'made the cut' as my favorites because they feature things that are trendy right now (ruffles, off-the-shoulder, etc.) but aren't so trendy that they will be out of style by next summer. These are great dresses to wear now while knowing you can still style them next summer.

Two things: 

1) I just purchased one of the dresses below. Any guesses which one?! 

2) Stocking up on these dresses is also great if you have any fall/winter tropical vacations planned. I'm going to Aruba the first week of November on a girls trip with my mom (so excited!) Are you going anywhere warm this fall/winter?
