Lace Item of the Day

I must give credit to Tova R. for this skirt that she posted on Pinterest; I saw she posted it and I knew that I had to post it as an item of the day! The delicate but bright pastel colors are perfect for summer and have all the right hints of a romantic, feminine piece. With lace fabric, scalloped edges, and pretty colors, the overall message of this skirt is "ultimate-girly-girl". Pair this skirt with a pair of nude pumps and a blouse-y top, however, and you will badass this lace girly-girl skirt in a heartbeat. Thanks Tova!

Comfy Item of the Day

If you're anything like me, then you are a creature of comfort. It also means you have a crazy obsession with Ryan Gosling's abs, but that's irrelevant to the task at hand. Being a creature of comfort, I look for a few things in clothing that will achieve ultimate comfort while not sacrificing on cuteness. These include fabric softness, weight, and fit. Enter this sweater from ASOS; it's a loose-fitting texture knot that won't hang too heavy on your body. This makes for the perfect year round sweater! Pair it with a light skirt in the summer, and switch it up come Fall with a button-down underneath and some dark tights. I bet it even looks great loosely tucked in! Perfection.

Feminine Item of the Day

Lord help me, because there is nothing I am loving more right now than an adorable print blazer! I was inspired by this Rebecca Minkoff blazer that has me positively smitten (click on that link, or click here). I've said it before, and I'll say it again that blazers are the ultimate in chic coverups, especially for work; a print blazer is the perfect way to dress up a ho-hum outfit with a feminine and chic touch. This blazer from Piperlime is perfect for just that! DOn't even tell me that you're not in love, because I know that you are. I just know it!

Summery Item of the Day

Oh, hello cuteness. No, not you. The cardigan. Although I'm sure you're cute too, and I'm not just saying that to retain your readership. In fact, I am sure that this cardigan is so freaking cute and adorable and perfect for summer, that it will make you want to come back here just to see what I post next. The tight sleeves and the looser, drape-y fit, the fresh light/dark ombre contrast, and the floral design make for a highly feminine and romantic piece that would look great over any maxi dress, work outfit, or what-have-you ensemble.

Modest Hollywood

A super fresh crop of celebrity beauties who have been strutting their stuff in the modest garb we love and adore. I am so smitten with Emma Stone and she totally takes my OAKie award for the week for best dressed celeb. The girl has style, class and a great fashion sense-- and damn can she work colors and patterns like no one else in Hollywood! Maxi dresses are clearly the summer staple this season, so make like a celeb and buy one of these fabulous dresses or skirts asap!
