neon lemon lime

Summer is flying by, readers! I feel like it was just yesterday I was wondering when it would finally warm up, and now I’m wearing neon (lemon lime) and embracing the warmth (as much as I can, I mean, it’s REALLY warm and humid). Who knows where the time goes, indeed. Have a good week, readers!

Dress: Oasap available here (now on clearance for $20!)

Shrug: Nordstrom Rack (so long ago, cannot remember the price!)

Necklace: Banana Republic ($12 marked down from $80)

Shoes: Juicy Couture via Kohl’s ($15 marked down from $75)

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) Aside from a black, white, or denim blazer, one item I wear endlessly is a shrug. It’s perfect for cold office air conditioning, and for offering some coverage when needed. I have shrugs in three basic colors: black, navy, and cream. You can’t go wrong with any of these colors and, if you don’t already, you’ll wear them all the time! White House Black Market normally has a good selection, as does Nordstrom Rack.

2) If you want to tone down neon (I personally love how bright it is!), you can add a neutral shirt underneath (denim would work), or layer a cardigan on top. You could also opt for neutral jewelry (versus the statement necklace I wore in this look) and shoes, and then your neon is definitely ready to go in almost any situation.

Anyone else embracing neon and summer? Have a good week readers! Thanks so much for stopping by!

structural with a smile

I remember bell shaped sleeves being “a thing” back when I was in junior high. I’m sure this structure detail has been on and off trend for decades now, long before I was even a wee Huntress. I’m thrilled to see the shape back in style again…it reminds me of oh so many memories. I’m headed way back in my memories today- this is my ‘structural with a smile’ look.

Top: Zara ($30)

Skirt: Ann Taylor Loft ($15 marked down from $90)

Shoes: Derek Lam via TJ Maxx ($60 marked down from $350)

Necklace: from travels to Nantucket

Bracelets: Alex and Ani   (+handmade bracelets)

It is #monthlymani time again! This month we did our favorite mani/pedi combos…I couldn’t decide which mani/pedi I liked best, so I’m posting both sets that I painted 🙂 Side note, it’s really hard to photograph your own hands and feet together in the same photo, so I decided to skip that mission and just photograph them separately.

not so long list

When faced with some balance and time off, I find I often scramble to get to everything “on the list.” You know that list. THE list. Yeah, I’m over that list. I’m trying to take my own advice and sloooooooow down. The other day, I did just that. Slowed down on my drive home to stop and wonder at a magnificent sunset.

easy breezy summer shadows

Contrary to probably many summer lovers, I love a cool summer day that is slightly overcast, allowing me to hang outdoors without breaking a sweat or running the risk of sun burn! A summery day where I can add a lightweight sweater? That makes me one happy camper. It’s my favorite kind of summer look: easy breezy with summer shadows.

 

Sweater: TJ Maxx ($16 marked down from approx $40)

Dress: Vera Wang for Kohl’s ($4 marked down from $58)

Jeans: Levi’s ($88)

Belt: Old Navy ($1 marked down from approx $5)

Necklace: J Crew Factory ($16 marked down from $40)

Sandals: Calvin Klein (so old, can’t even remember where I got them!)

Fashion Huntress tips:

1) I thought this dress was a little on the short side when I was sitting down, which lent itself perfectly to being worn with jeans or leggings. Also, I generally shy away from a drop waist style, since I don’t think it’s a flattering style on me. However, once belted and layered, the drop waist look ended up working out just fine. Never say never in fashion because you never know what will end up working out in the end! 

2) I recently placed my first order with J Crew Factory, and was really pleased with what I got! The jewelry is a fraction of the price than it is in stores, and there is regularly a free shipping and/or additional markdown sale taking place. I simply waited for both a sale and free shipping offer to occur and was able to ensure that I got the best deal.
