Summer in stockings

I never thought I'd invest in a relatively expensive pair of stockings, much less wear them outside of fall, until I'd gone shopping for a replacement in Paris last year. Since then, I've been completely swayed by the sheer power of quality stockings and have tried to find ways to incorporate them more often... even on warmer days. Sometimes, just sometimes, I like to layer a pair of wispy tights under high-waisted shorts to give an edge to outfits for summer nights around town.

Simple is as simple does

Generally speaking, most sales no longer sway me. I think the four-letter word use to glisten and come at me like it was practically Christmas morning, but as I've grown older I realized that if by the time sale season comes around I haven't already purchased what I was eyeing, I probably didn't want it that badly. This applies to most items... except those that I find on The Dreslyn. Their exceptional curation of designer styles consists of all arguably lifetime wardrobe pieces, and the seasonal sales are just giving us a chance at scoring on a smart investment piece. Sale or no sale, I love The Dreslyn for its range of perennial labels and thoughtful styles.

I'm no stranger to their annual warehouse sales either (when designer items sometimes go up to 80-90% off), but this season's pickings are too good to pass up... especially with the chance to take an additional 20% off select items. Everything worn above is from The Dreslyn, but I did some extra scouring of their sale section so that you don't have to:

Flick of neon

In true Neon Blush fashion: shaking things up a little bit with a sliver of teal (Marc Jacobs crayon highliner in 'Whirl(pool) 51') against my otherwise monochrome 'fit. I'm slowly feeling more comfortable donning colors again, but I have absolutely no reservations about wearing them as a subtle flick of eyeliner, especially for summer. It's a fun and easy way to freshen up the look when you don't want to wear too much on your face, ya know? Now, if there was a way to actually wear neon as blush...
