A Tale of Two White Shirts and a Denim Skirt

Mother Patchie Skirt

I think we can all agree that you can never have too many white shirts. They kind of fall into the jeans camp where different looks call for different cuts. Sometimes you need a high neck, sometimes a short sleeve, and sometimes the kind of fabric is what’s integral to making an outfit work. As we move into summer, I’ve started clearing out some older styles and restocking my wardrobe with white tops. These two by Mother and IRO have already been in steady rotation. And, I’ve found the perfect pencil skirt. And, it’s denim! And, that means I’ll be wearing it a lot!

Overall Overhaul

Citizens of Humanity Overalls

I resisted the return of overalls until I finally caved in and tried on Citizens of Humanity’s Quincey style. I have to say it doesn’t take more thought than throwing on your favorite pair of jeans. You can still wear them with tees, sweaters and leather jackets and, as I discovered the other night, dressed up with a blouse and heels.

Thinking Pink

Pink Sweater

When I was buying spring/summer for my boutiques last fall, there was a strong color trend that ran through each collection – Pink and all it’s glorious and feminine shades. Whether it’s just a simple piece of jewelry here, a sweater or a pair of shorts below, it’s a color that can make any of your looks current.

Spring Cleaning – Sleep

sleep

Around this time every year I replace my bed sheets with crisp, fresh new ones. It’s the best feeling climbing into a fluffy cloud of brand spanking newness. I turned to Pinterest to get some inspiration. See more on my board, Sleep here.

Good As Gold

It’s not often that I’m without a gold accessory on hand. It’s as relevant as any neutrals and adds just the right amount of shine and texture. I’ve been waiting for these n.d.c Made by Hand sandals to arrive in store and love the delicate and feminine straps. Call 1 877 342 6474 for more information or email customercare@dianiboutique.com. Paired with a favorite gold pouch by Anya Hindmarch available here. It also doubles as a make up bag and great for travel! Oliver Peoples aviator sunglasses.

Hanging Loose at Night

Isabel Marant Play heels

The Getting Back To Square 1 DC pants are making their second appearance (I told you I’ve been wearing them all the time) and I’ve found them to be super easy to style for evening looks. It’s simple when you go head to toe black – Just add some variety with texture, like a leather jacket or a silk top, an animal print clutch or shoe and a heel or bootie! These pants are your friend, I promise :-)
