Im sitting by the pool just off the shores of the Hampton’s when i think to myself…..i love this hat….i should take a picture in it for my blog….then i realized i wasn’t at the Hampton’s at all …..i was just in ZARA daydreaming about wearing this hat to the Hampton’s! And thats how this look came about. Iv never been a preppy style type person but somehow i feel like this look is somewhere in the middle between my style and J-Crew preppy style. I think its really important to show different sides of our style to continue to evolve and create our ultimate wardrobe!
As summer is quickly approaching we are very excited for new designer collaborations! this summer its all about Milly for Banana Republic. While were not customers of Banana, we are a huge fan of Milly. Milly’s average price point for a dress is $400 – $900, however her banana collection……nothing over $170. I find this a great price point because we get the designer pieces without losing the quality. An always missing factor in H&M, And Target designer collaborations. Another great factor about the Milly collection…..she’s making mens! so for us this is very exciting! Banana will feature over 70 pieces in this new collection, all Hampton inspired out at the end of may! However we know just how to pull off this preppy chic look right here in Dallas! If you’re not familiar with Milly of New York check out her current spring collection below, and her fall 2013 collection on the bottom!

I’m a huge fan of red, primely because its the best neutral. i mean lets get real, nobody is mad at red in december, and its the key color for a nautical look. Red looks great with every color in the rainbow, and thats why its truly the new neutral! This last February we saw red walk the fall runway at almost every show of mercedes benz fashion week, so I knew I had to incorporate it soon! So this is one of my go to blazers for a lot of events, it’s so versatile! I can dress it up for a work function or wear it casual with jeans and a white tee, these are the kind of pieces that are essential y’all! With my favorite jacket in tow, i can really go anywhere. I can go to work to talk about fashion all day long, I can go for happy hour with my best girlfriends, i can go to a nice dinner with my family, and in a dream scenario, i’m walking down the streets of beverly hills bump into my old chum Lisa Vanderpump and go shopping on rodeo drive…..i mean the list can go on, and on. Y’all know i top everything off with some arm candy so i threw on a little leopard and my gold chain! I hope y’all had a happy easter, and cheers to another week!
