Summer is almost here, or so I like to think. This means that the search for the perfect summer wedge is on. Every year I go on the hunt for that shoe that is comfy enough for the whole day, and manages to carry me from day to night. Few succeed and I often find myself buying flats in the middle of a hot NY summer day when the failing ones let me down. Here are the finalists for Summer 2011. Some are out of budget, but a girl is always allowed to dream.

Oh, and just in case you forgot, I’m a 6.5 and I accept gifts.
I’m a fan of online shopping, baking and fashion so it was inevitable that my love for them would eventually lead to a search for a cute and fun apron.
I was pleasantly surprised with these Etsy finds:
I fell in fashion-love with Louise Roe from the moment she walked onto my TV screen on The City. I wondered who this composed chick was that was trying to take some of the spotlight away from Olivia and I automatically liked her. She always looks polished and poised and I loves to see these pictures, from the Coveteur of course, that show that her home is a little quirky as well.

I’ve always liked women in menswear. It’s a sure hit when going for comfy casual any season, but I’ve never been a fan of how it tends to look for women as formal-wear. In my opinion, it mostly looks forced, but I definitely have to give credit where credit is due and say that all the looks that Anja Rubik wore for this May 2011 Vogue Paris editorial are impeccable. Everything from the styling, to the makeup to the tailored fit of the suits makes for a stylish and feminine girl out on the town.

I’m going to start this off by admitting I’m not very big on sunglasses. I stick to the classic big black frames and rarely venture away unless it’s for a cheap & fun pair to get me through a sunny summer day.
But these, oh these, had me falling in love at first sight (pun not intended). They have a classic shape that I adore, but with some fun coloring that adds a splash of fun. Gimmee.
Buy them (for me) here.
The key to happiness in my closet is editing.
I only keep out the items that I am wearing
that moment, everything else is stored in bins
until the season (or my mood) changes.
I’m a big fan of fashion blogs, one of my favorites being Who What Wear. They’re genuine, fun and always have a unique edge in every new post.
I follow their tweets and read their blog daily, but it doesn’t seem to be enough. Check out this great insight into Katherine Power’s fashion and home on the Coveteur.
My favorite pictures are these, and after reading her descriptions for the pictures I will definitely try some editing in my own closet once summer starts.
Summer is almost here, and swimsuits are everywhere. I hope this summer is as full of swimsuits for you, as (i hope) it will be for me.
Below are my favorite picks for beachware from Net-A-Porter. A bit out of budget, but a girl can dream.
I’ve caught the summer bug. Hope these cloudy and windy days go away soon.
BHLDN (pronounced beholden), Anthropologie’s new Bridal shop, opened on February 14th to a lot of expectations. Though the dresses left a lot to be desired, the lingerie is worth a virtual trip into the new online store.
Sometimes we scream. Sometimes we write things out. Sometimes we just go on out and say it. Most times we need to be a little more subtle about things.
Check out this gorgeously simple necklace from COATT that says things without being obvious by using Morse Code. This one says Love, but you can always get one that says Dandy, Amore, Swell, Lucky or a custom made one that says whatever you want.
Though subtlety isn’t my specialty, I want one.

Being on a recent college grad’s budget, I’m all for fashion for the masses. Designer collaborations make me giddy with their over-promises and attainable prices (as you can see here) . This one has no reason to make me excited personally, but I’m still happy for all those brides-to-be that, even on a limited budget, will be able to avoid tacky hideousness and go for a little Vera instead.
Enjoy the surprisingly pretty dresses below.
