overhaul on overalls

from in to fashion faux-paux to in again, overalls are certainly part of the circle of fashion life. i'm not mad about their resurgence, especially done in a chic way. what do you think? over overalls or into it? happy monday :-) xo, mary 
p.s. how are you feeling about birkenstocks recently?

to the max maxi

no disrespect to the man repeller and her not-for-the-fellas fashions, (come on the girl just got hitched! hypocrite, much?) but the boys really love a maxi. they love it to the max. and i was certainly loving this TCEC dress. so pretty with a back cutout too. showing just enough skin to be understated sexy. thoughts? do you feel uber feminine in a maxi dress/skirt?

blogger lookout

i get very inspired by one of my very own... fashion bloggers! here's some looks i'm digging: the oh-so-true "pretty tomboy" T paired nicely with a fitted high low mini (songofstyle.) a splash of kurt-cobain inspired plaid worn in pristine white (chicmuse.) the summer version of the pajama style dressing designed by lovers + friends (worn by chiara of theblondesalad.) the ease of lightweight cottons in all white is summer perfect (so effortless displayed by karlascloset.) are you sensing a theme here... white on white and matchy matchy? that's all she wrote!

no expiration date: gingham

Marilyn monroe and bridget bardot donned it with massive sex appeal while goldie hawn gave it an american sweetheart vibe. Anna Wintour pulls it off as chic while Linda evangelista made it supermodel super. I say Gingham's been around the block. And we still want more. Some things avoid the dreaded expiration date and are timelessly cool. Cheers to that notion. So, who wears it best?

body of proof

Really digging the sporty style of the Vogue Korea's July 2013 "Body of Proof" editorial featuring Miranda Kerr and shot by Eric Guillemain. Nice job, Vogue Team, in making athletic apparel look so very chic. Makes me want to go for a bike ride ;-) Happy Tuesday!! xoxo Mary

#freshinspiration #foryourmondayblues

a perfect pout photoed in black and white, set off by a turban? yesssir. and it's monday so we're allowed to pout a bit :-)

i recently discovered the blog of neon blush. i'm not mad at her style and these yellow 
floral shorts. www.neonblush.com

Nothing like denim cutoffs for the summer. so many choices, oh my! i'm a levi's girl myself and recently stumbled on some dope vintage pairs at my fave thrift store from high-school   (image via little plastic horses)

my mouth was watering over this recipe for avocado grapefruit toast. the most pure, simple food are simply the best and it looks like this snack falls into that category. vegan too! get the full deets here 

still feeling the 90s attire and vibe that the former couple Johnny and Kate so perfectly embodied. her dress! (via little plastic horses)

lastly, a little home decor inspiration. there's nothing nicer than living in a nice place: a beautiful home is everything! this one in particular is villa maria, the magnificent Victorian retreat in Long Island. Images originally via Architectural Digest and later on Honestly, WTF 

did you get a little inspiration fix? hope so. xoxo mary
