Hey there my beautiful birds!  I’m sorry you haven’t received any recent posts. I have been on a long needed sabbatical but I’m baaaaccckkk and want to catch you up on all the amazing things this summer had in store.  

First things first, A last minute opportunity, turned into the trip of a lifetime, and I found myself in Italy for two weeks.  I ate, drank and explored beginning at the northern coast and continued all the way down to Capri.  Ahh… Capri… This little island was simply magical.  I’ll share some of my pics and tips with you but you can also read more about my Italian adventures on the fashion site Trendabl.

SUMMER SHOPPING LIST

Screen Shot 2015-06-04 at 2.06.06 PM

Happy Thursday! Today I thought I’d share a glimpse into my everyday, beyond the blog, into what I really do. Being a personal stylist is a bit like Christmas, every day.

I may not always have the new Gucci Bamboo Handle Handbag for summer or the Perfect Barbie Pink Saint Laurent Classic Tribute Sandal but you can bet my clients will. Why?

Because I shop for them like it’s Christmas every day!! Many people ask, “why would someone with style need a stylist?” It’s simple, for many of my clients time is money. From busy business men and women, to moms on the go, I make their lives more simple. I provide the luxury of doing the thinking, shopping and returning for them. If you have ever spent the day in a store trying on jeans, you understand where I’m coming from. While we all want the Saint Laurent and Gucci Christmas list, sometimes that’s just not realistic.

Today I’ve pulled my Christmas in Summer picks for you. They are on the house and budget friendly. Shop away!!

FashionBillie Bit: YSL is now Saint Laurent for their ready-to-wear line, which let’s face it, that’s what most of us wear:) Now you can sound smart in front of your friends. XO

Alice In Wonderland: The Wrap Dress of Summer

TIBI Wrap Dress

Fairy Tales don’t happen everyday but something about this wrap dress from the Tibi 2015 Spring collection made me feel like I was in one. This dress is perfect for so many occasions because of it’s versatility. You can dress it up for a wedding with a formal heel, dress it down with a summer wedge or sandal, or pair it with a blazer and over the knee boot that will take you into fall.

I think this dress is ultra femme, so for my look today, I paired with gladiator sandals to give it a bit of edge.

Sheer Neon: Must Have Summer Shirt

Pick a color, any color— tangerines, lemon-limes and sassy pinks, oh my!  Add the perfect punch to your spring wardrobe with this versatile sheer summer blouse. I found this great shirt at H&M on our San Francisco trip but they can be found in stores from forever 21 to Neimans.  Tie it up with a flowing hi-low skirt for a weekend look, or tuck it in with a pair of slacks and blazer for business chic.  On lazy days I like to wear this great high-low skirt with sandals and a tank for quick and comfortable style.
