She works hard for her money...

After a successful but long first week in corporate America all I want to do is sleep.... and of course shop! Here are some of my favorite new work outfits from Ann Taylor Loft. I love when companies put together their own outfits, great for getting ideas!

A formal affair from Downeast Basics

I am so excited about Downeast coming out with a formal dress line especially because it seems like a few of their styles are long enough for me, and being 5'11 that does not happen often with their dresses!
I think this lovely flowered pink dress as well as the elegant navy dress are simply gorgeous and am trying to decide which one I want for my sisters wedding this fall. They have several other beautiful shades and styles, including the long formal black tie dress and the sassy silver ruffle dress shown below and with so many options you are sure to find the perfect fit for your formal needs!

Applique away!

Apparently the new way to jazz up basic skirts is with appliqued patterns and I LOVE this trend!

Watermelon love from Boden!

I am totally into Bodenusa this week, as you may have noticed. I think this watermelon top and white appliqued skirt are one of the most perfect outfits I have seen all summer. White just screams SUMMER for me and with these gorgeous appliqued flowers it makes your outfit super unique and classy. Dress it up with your favorite heels and a few minor accessories and you are set!

Summer dress to impress

This colorblock dress at is such a perfect summer dress for so many occasions. It can be casual and sleeveless for a beach party or bbq, or dressed up a bit with a cute cropped cardigan for an indoor event or simply to give you more coverage. I love the color combination and as an added bonus... it comes in long for us taller girls! Yay!

Summa'time stripes!

I am absolutely in love with stripes this season especially to doll up a simple pencil or a-line skirt. Throw in some simple flats or heels and a few flashy accessories and you've got me hooked!Summer Stripes

Sweet as a Georgia peach

The flower trend lately has really bloomed (haha) and I love the combination of flowered accessories and tops. Pair these great summer styles with a pastel cardigan (peach is my new fave of the season if you hadn't noticed!) and your favorite summer bottom and you will be looking sweet as a Georgia peach and ready for any occasion!

Stripes are in, don't get left out!

A new summer trend that I really like are stripes of all sizes. Whether on a cute cardigan or breezy summer shirt, stripes are a great way to add some pattern and variety to your wardrobe without going overboard on the accessories. I am also loving the many shades of gray and yellow being showcased this season, such as the super cute shirts below from Downeast Basics and American Eagle:

Cardigans are blooming again!

I absolutely adore this cardigan from Downeast Basics and am glad to see it back in stock. I bought the hot pink one months ago and it was literally out of stock within a week or 2 of being put online. It has such a great fit and color and I think the little flower petals all over give it a really unique and feminine look. Get yours while they are available, they won't be there for long!

Summer party classic

I love the combination of colors mixed with the classic brown background on this new top from Downeast basics. The pattern and color combination makes this top so easy to dress up or dress down with simple accessories. Throw it on with your favorite pair of capris and a stand-by cardigan for changing weather and you are set for looking fabulous at any picnic or garden party this season!

Let the colorful times roll!

I have been m.i.a. in Kansas for the past 5 days and while I did not pick up any good fashion tips while there, I did recently see this super adorable skirt now available online from Downeast Basics! I love lots of color for summer and with a playful skirt like this there are so many top and color options to fit any style.

So many tops

More pink please!

Apparently I am in the mood for pink because I adored this new Downeast Basics flower top the moment I saw it! And seriously, did you see that quilted purse?! LOVE it! A great picnic/outing ensemble if I ever saw one.

Pretty in pink and pearls!

Think pink and pretty with this gorgeous new summer dress from Downeast Basics. Thanks to the beautiful ruffle trim you will need minimal accessories to doll up for a night out; I suggest pearls for a classy and elegant balance to the bright and playful pink and because really, who does not love pearls?!
