Sugar! Honey Honey! White Lace Jumpsuit in Central Park

Sugar! Honey, Honey! I recently did a fun, New York City, photo shoot in collaboration with KK Bloom Boutique. This is one of my favorite pieces. It's a lace/crochet white jumpsuit by Sugar Lips. It's super affordable, comfy and classy. I love white because it can carry such an innocence in effortless fashion. I have posted several similar looks you may enjoy from ShopStyle below. As always, let me know on socials if you end up picking one of these goodies up for yourself!

Michael Kors White Lace Sheath Dress

This white lace, sheath dress is such a classy, 'wear anywhere' kind of dress! I think this will be a forever gold in my closet! It's by Michael Kors. It does run a little big. I am normally a US size 4. But I had to go down and get a US size 2. These glittery heels are fun aren't they?! They are also by Michael Kors and come in two separate heights: 4.3 inches.... and 3 inches. As for the fun pink peekaboo!  The pink fan/tassel earrings are always such a fun surprise too. I have a million of these in different colors! The aviators sunnies are by Ray Ban. Make sure you scroll down to shop the look. Hope you see something you can't live without!

Neutral Tones and Sequins in NYC's West Village

Neutral tones and sequins are an unsuspecting yet perfect pair. Classy and elegant with a touch of pizazz. The neutral tones mute the scream that sparkle can sometimes bring... the kind that causes a dress to enter the room before the woman. It's all about the girl in the dress... not the just the dress right!? The under layer of this dress is nude in color. That hue combined with its fitted naturekeeps the tailored look... despite having a looser overlay.

I declare! I will wear this dress until the sequins fall off! I've probably worn it too many times as is. It was a West Village staple while I was living there. Hey! If there are different people at the events you're going to... and the dress is a hit... Do you really have to wear something new every time!? Every time I got to give it to GoodWill... I think... I'll just wear it ONE more time! Do you have any dresses like that?

Check out my handpicked goodies below. As always... let me know on social media if you find something that jives with your style!
