man, it’s been so long since i’ve done a proper style post! i used to create these almost weekly but it has been a minute so i’m excited to be sharing this one today. this year has been one for the books with really cool partnerships and today i’m excited to announce another art direction project i will be working on. this is my first of three posts with a brand new company called . you might have seen in my stories last week where i showed some of their pieces. they are lab-grown diamonds. which means that they share the same physical, optical and chemical properties as natural diamonds but because they are made in a lab, they are a fraction of the price.

diamonds have always, for the most part, been seen as a romantic gift, on an anniversary, engagement or some other very significant milestone. is changing the game by working to create a fun and playful line of lab-grown diamonds that could be gifts for your best friend’s wedding, your sister’s 30th birthday or just because. they are still a substantial purchase, $800 per carat but much more approachable and affordable than natural diamonds. and they come in fun colors, like the pink one i’m wearing above. you can buy the studs as singles, which i love, so you can mix and match your own pieces. i’m into taking something higher-end, like their rose gold lab-grown diamond pendant and pairing it with fun, everyday pieces, things that have a bit of color and texture to them.

and the rose gold chain inspired pick with is 100% a new favorite. it was a splurge but i’m working on building a small wardrobe of pieces that i absolutely love and can wear over and over again. it’s super comfortable and flattering because of the wrap style (for reference, i’m wearing size small), highly recommend! and my shoes are .

i’m heading to michigan tonight and i’m a 10/10 excited. no summer is complete for me without a trip back home, the most beautiful lakes, the longest days where it doesn’t get dark until 10pm and you spend all day outside swimming, eating ice cream and riding your bike. summer fashion is definitely starting to wind down but i still have lots of warm weather things i’m excited to wear. lots of pretty things still floating around in the online shopping world, here are some faves that i’d like to bring with me this weekend. – joanie


– i have yet to venture into the high waisted bikini category but thinking this one is a good place to start.

 $60 – the perfect piece to throw on over your sundress when you head out at night

 $168 – i’m normally more of a fan of solid colored swimsuits but for some reason these bright patterns are calling my name.

 $20 – red and white stripes in a classic summer combo, cute with denim shorts or a skirt.

 $128 – a carry all perfect for the beach or a trip into town for some groceries

 $40 – neon on pairs perfectly with sun kissed skin!

 $189 – great as a cover up or dress. i like light weight maxis for the summer, they’re chic and protect against the sun.

 $489 – i’m not advocating spending $400+

 $160 – this is the one item i actually am packing! i love a one piece with a slightly sexy element, like the scoop back on this one.



something about summer that makes me want to wear white every single day. i love a white blouse tucked into jean shorts, worn half unbuttoned over a bikini, or tied up at the waist with your favorite skirt. here are few white tops i have my eye on, most of them at a very reasonable price! – joanie

 $35  – i love the romance of an off the shoulder blouse.

 $128 – i’m okay with long sleeves in the summer heat as long as they aren’t skin tight. this top has a fun, laid back feeling.

 $98  – such a pretty little piece with the lace ruffles around the edges. i love anything that feels victorian!

 $45 – high neck and bare shoulders all the way! i like how they styled her hair on top of her head for this look too, i’d do the same.

  $99 – i own this top and have worn it so many times this summer. such a simple piece but it’s great with jeans or a skirt. half linen, half cotton.

   $45 –  very into swiss dot with anything and everything!

 $40 – can’t belive this is H&M, i love it so much. the soft v-neck and the delicate sleeve detail.

 $30 – simple and sweet.

 $30 – for the petite people in our lives! and love the cinches waist.




the most important part of your wardrobe are the basic items, the pieces that you can wear almost every day, layered or paired with jeans, tucked into skirts, tied over dresses, with a pair of shorts, etc. you can’t build an outfit without them and even though they aren’t always the most fun thing to spend money on, they usually give you the most bang for your buck. one of my all time favorite places to buy great basics is . i love their transparency and i also love their clothing. the designs are thoughtful, good fabrics, nice quality and colors. a few great looking staples that they currently have in stock below! – joanie

  $55 – very into these striped cotton button ups for summer, tied at the waist, over a swimsuit, with jeans, the options are endless!

 $68 – a cami is a great piece to add to your wardrobe, it’s perfect under a blazer during the day and then on it’s own in the evening. i love them tucked into full waisted 50’s style skirts.

 $98 – this has such a classic feeling, i love a slightly oversized silk button down, buttoned all the way to the top and tucked in or with a few buttons undone and a pretty lace bra peaking out.

 $78 – i heavily rotate between a utility type jacket like this and a denim jacket. they’re great day or night.

 $30 – if you haven’t tried a bodysuit, now is the time! they are the perfect layering piece as they don’t ride up. i love them with tighter fitting skirts as you don’t get that tucked in line.

  $45 – i love slightly oversized sweatshirts. they give me the feeling of vintage Champion from the 70’s.

 $15 – a little boxy and a little cropped. a great white tee to pair with high waisted denim.

 $38 – loving all the soft colors this crewneck sweatshirt comes in.

  $155 – if you feels tuck between sandals and sneakers every day, throw these into the mix. ladylike and simple!



last week i shared my new favorite black jeans and this week i’m sharing my current obsession by my fav LA based . i’ve worn it three out of the last four days, to the farmer’s market, to see the robin williams doc (he was my favorite!), and to get bagels and coffee. i’m always looking for effortless dresses, something you can pull on, wear all day and never feel uncomfortable and this one fits the bill. i’m normally cautions when it comes to wrap dresses because they often don’t wrap far enough and can blow open when you’re walking but ties all the way around and has adjustable straps which makes it work for lots of bodies. , the print makes me feel like i’m on vacation in the south of italy, win/win. i have the small but probably could have gone down to an XS, so I’d say if you between sizes, size down! i wear mine with this , which i highly recommend. it’s really comfortable and i wear it all the time. – joanie
