I love Express Portofino shirts – my black & white contrast trim version (last seen here) is SO easy to take care of – it drapes beautifully and requires no ironing. After seeing the Warm Stone color on Noelle, I was inspired to pick up a few more shirts for myself.
I bought the Warm Stone and Soft Ivory versions. They were a bit pricey, but Express is currently running a promotion: if you buy 2, the second costs $29.90. I think these tops are wardrobe staples – they can be dressed-down with jeans, or paired with a pencil skirt (saving for this) and heels for a more elegant look.
These H&M tops are more comfortable than stylish, but I think they’re perfect for wearing while lounging around with my family this summer. I have a hard time resisting pink gingham, and I loved the vintage-y rose print of the graphic tee.
I adore my Forever21 designer shoe dupes (as seen here), and these Edgy Studded Thong Sandals remind me of the Balenciaga Arena Studded Flat sandals – except the studs are smaller…and they’re $17 rather than $500+!!!! I’ve been looking for an oversized turquoise pendant for a while, and I’m so glad Forever21 finally restocked their Free Spirit Pendant Necklace – it’s the perfect accent piece for the summer.
My HG thermal spray (posted about here) was on sale, so I stocked up, and was super-happy to be given a gift-with-purchase when I checked out. I received a hot pink toiletry bag, mini-thermal spray (love the teeny size – perfect for my travel bag), a mask and cream.
I’ll end with 2 recent OOTDs:
Shoes: Aeropostale (similar)
Necklace: Forever21 (similar)
Shoes: Sam Edelman
Bag: Longchamp Le Pliage
Watch: La Mer
