Start of Summer (See Jane Wear)

Eliza gran bag striped midi dress
old Mara Hoffman dress (similar here and on sale here), Schutz slides (similar), Eliza Gran bag (sold out but similar/less expensive here), Sonix sunglasses
If you're in the USA, hope you're all having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend.  Summer is so close that I can taste it.  I'm ready for balmy nights, long walks with the family (that almost always end up at Jeni's for ice cream) and lots of dresses.  I really relied on dresses last summer when I was pregnant with Teddy and I made sure to purchase ones that I could wear while pregnant and hopefully without a bump, too.  I bought this Mara Hoffman dress year, wore it while pregnant, and am happily still donning it.  Here are a couple similar options (and some are on sale!):

linen stripes to beat the heat
sky blue and under $120
vertical stripes for length and a great price
striped shirt dress (and on sale!)
stripes that are perfect for a wedding
tiered stripes (also 40% sale or 30% your whole order!)

Have a great night!

Sale Picks (See Jane Shop)

It's that time of year again.  If you're familiar with the retail cycle, you might notice that once all the spring apparel goes on sale, you can actually wear it if you live in a chilly climate.  It's pretty much the only advantage that comes along with a chilly climate in May.  (Spring in Chicago/midwest has been downright arctic.)

The best thing about the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is that it's an opportunity to buy the fancy brands that you know and love at a discounted price.  This is the time when I buy from the Via C (sale here) and Individualist department (sale here).

This Sea dress is linen and I think I will wear it all summer (bought it!).
How cute would this The Great. white top be with white jeans?
This Kooples red, floral dress is perfect for showers and weddings this summer.
How cute would these Apiece Apart shorts be with a black tank?
This Sea top would be amazing with jean shorts and sandals.
Veda rarely goes on sale and this jacket is perfect for now AND for fall - grab it!

Official Preppy Handbook (See Jane Wear)

Two Penny Blue blazer (similar), old H&M striped tee (similar), 3x1 jeans, DSW shoes (similar), Serpui Marie clutch (look for less)
Warm weather brings out the prepster in me.  Reds, whites, blues, and stripes?  Give it all to me.  It's really my fail-safe combination, though, and navy is my 'black' in the summertime.  What's your go-to summer color combo?

Also, have you noticed a trend in my spring wear?  Blazers.  Here's a few to start with:

navy scalloped blazer
coral collarless blazer
gingham blazer
dotten linen blazer
