Veronica Beard – a designer I am currently loving

Hi all! Sorry for the hiatus, lots of things going on and not all of it good. I have officially concluded (at 39) that I am indeed middle aged. Officially. Go ahead and laugh. Do you now find that at a certain stage you are dealing more and more with things that you ever even thought of in your late 20s and 30s? And I mean more that a few grey hairs and wrinkles. See, those are fixable. The rest of it is tougher….

VB brand popped up oh I think 6 or so years ago, 2 sisters collaborating. I thought they were rather boring and pricey at first with lots of flowy balloon sleeves and other oddities. Then I saw this jacket on Instagram and fell in love. Still really pricey though tear…. LOVE the fit and lace detail. How good would this be even with my black leggings at pick up? 🙂


Intermix $695

I also liked this embellished Levi utility jacket, which is a lot more budget friendly at $178 in Bloomingdales but not sure I can pull this look off….


I saw this dress at Veronica Beard’s Instagram feed. Swoon.


Neiman Marcus $495

This dress covers up your oysters and lobster roll dinner with the rouching and the tie in the middle and trust me this color is so flattering, especially if you manage to get some tan as well.

So, tell me, which designers have caught your eye lately? Any could sources for casual summer dresses?
