I hope ya’ll had a great weekend! My boo + I had a busy weekend shooting new looks + fun content for the blog, along with a little date night trip to the movies to see The Equalizer – which was AMAZING btw! Pretty convinced Denzel can do no wrong :p hehe
One of the things I love about summer is wearing light colors + layers. This Simply Be white eyelet dress combines my love for both. For some reason when I see a white eyelet dress, I instantly think Sunday brunch or a trip to the horse races or a trip to a polo match, very ‘sophisticated chic’. With that vision in mind, I had to pair this dress with simple black accessories. If you ask me, black + white is always a good idea…
I love this eyelet dress because it is chic enough for the office or a special occasion, but it also keeps you cool in the warm summer temps (especially in LA it has been like 100 degrees)!
It is one of my favorite dresses I have scored on Simply Be because it looks so expensive but retails for under $60! It also fits true to size which is always a plus.
You can never go wrong with a little black heel! These Steve Madden black ankle strap heels are one of my current go-to’s because they match with everything + with the chunky heel, are comfortable as well!
You can also never go wrong with a classic Chanel. When in doubt, add Chanel hehe 😉
My Signature Style? A LWD (little white dress)! No matter what time of year it is, you will find me in some form of white…white jeans, a white blazer, white pumps and now…a white dress! As some of you may know if you follow me on Instagram + SnapChat (MissyOnMadison), I had a little girls trip to San Diego this weekend to head to the America’s Best Racing (the horse races) at the Delmar Race Track!
Between having the gorgeous track as my photo shoot backdrop and having a fantastic tour guide (thanks Jose) show myself and my friends around the track (we even got to meet the jockeys + pet one of the horses — the highlight of the day for one of my friends hehe) it was honestly one of the best experiences I have had since moving to California<3 The best part is when America’s Best Racing originally invited me to attend the races, they reached out to me to head to the track in NY…little did they know I had up and moved to LA so it was the perfect excuse to have a weekend getaway to San Diego (which was beyond amazing…I kind of wish I was still there right now).
Nothing gets me more excited for the upcoming weekend like a nice packing/shopping guide! I am heading the the Del Mar race track this weekend in San Diego to finally have my ‘day at the races’ considering I missed all of the horse racing in the Hamptons since moving to LA (tear tear).
Well I am excited to A) Explore San Diego since I hear it is beautiful but I have never been + B) Win some money! (What I don’t look like a gambling kind of girl? Well that’s because I am not haha but for the sake of this weekend maybe I will be a trooper and give it a shot :p)
Anyways, the most exciting part of any weekend trip, especially exploring a new place…is the packing! So I rounded up what I will be brining in my suitcase (yes a suitcase will be brought even if it is just a weekend trip…you never know what you may need haha) and the best part is that all of my picks are from Nordstrom AND a good amount of them are from the Anniversary Saleending August 2nd so shop now before it is too late!
Happy Labor Day Loves! While the old saying goes ‘No White After Labor Day’, there was never a saying about not wearing white ON Labor Day 😉 Who am I kidding, I don’t follow the rules…I wear white year round, but this gorgeous white eyelet dress is definitely a summer piece, especially a summer celebration dress! These photos were actually shot over a month and a half ago…any of my bloggers out there shoot things and totally forget about them? Well that was the case with this fab look! My white eyelet dress is actually from 3 years ago…my mom scored it on clearance at Macy’s. I must say white eyelet dresses are so classy and chic, I automatically think Sunday brunch or walking on the beach…so I had to shoot this on the Nautical Mile on Freeport, LI…a strip of bars, shops and restaurants right on the water 🙂My heels are from the Kate Hudson for Ann Taylor collection. I got them for $9…yes $9 a year ago! Don’t worry I found similar strappy cork heels from Aldo at 6pm.com 🙂 My bag…Rebecca Minkoff duh! The ‘Affair’ bag is my go to for absolutely everything! On a side note, my orange nail polish…one of my favorite summer shades…is it bad that I want to rock neon orange year round? oops! Still not loosing the mirrored aviators…deal with it 😉 I just love them! (PS if you look close enough you can spot my little sister Heather snapping the photo!)I’m contemplating transitioning this dress into fall…any tips? Share your ideas with me by commenting below! Happy Labor Day…live it up & be safe <3Shop My Look <3
