Wearing White After Labor Day

Hello loves. We hope that you're all taking some time to relax with friends, cook up something amazing and toast to a beautiful Summer. We're talking Labor Day Whites here on SMP today because as far as I'm concerned, whoever came up with the rule that wearing white after labor day is a no-no is sorely mistaken. And to prove it, I've rounded up a few Fall approved white-inspired outfits that you will love.

Best Dressed Blogger: Barefoot Blonde

Some may say Jen Aniston. Others may go with Blake Lively or Jennifer Lawrence or Mila Kunitz. But my girl crush? Is decidedly Amber Fillerup of Barefoot Blonde. Aside from the fact that she is absurdly gorgeous with style for days, she also doesn't seem to take herself too seriously and allows fashion to be a wildly individual sport. Plus she's kind of a bad ass. And today she's sharing her fashion genius with us mere mortals in her...

Really, really high! So today, Taylor is breaking the code for all things...

Behind the Scenes with Geminola

If you're a Sex and the City or Girls fan, you may have heard the name Geminola in the past. Miss Carrie Bradshaw has been known to wear a Lorraine Kirke original in her time, and Jessa Johansson (Lorraines daughter!) donned one of her frocks during that infamous wedding scene not long ago. But if you haven't yet had the pleasure of getting to know this incredible designer, allow me to make your...

DIY Jewelry Tray

Over time, it's easy to let your jewelry get jumbled in a pile on your dresser! When I have jewelry in drawers, I tend to forget what pieces I own. This is an easy (and space efficient!) DIY that allows you to organize your jewels in the prettiest way. For more DIY inspiration, you can head over to my blog, In Honor of Design. 3 floral...

New York City Fashion with Bryce Covey Photography

New York City and love - they simply go hand and hand. So it's only natural that this vibrant locale would act as the perfect backdrop for this fashionable one year anniversary shoot. And this stylish couple has had me swooning from the get go. From their simple yet suave attire all the way to Priscilla's ruby red lip - these two would give even the most style savvy a run for their money. Captured by...

The Beauty Department & Kristin Ess’ Top 10 Beauty Essentials

Truth be told, I'm not one who typically abides by "beauty essential" tips. With so much on the market and so many vastly different opinions, I usually prefer to stick to my own tried, tested and true rituals. But when we had the chance to catch up with the sweet & savvy Kristin Ess of the ever beloved Beauty Department, you better believe I was all ears. Because when a girls skin is this glowy, and her hair is that luxurious, you...

3 WAYS TO STYLE LEATHER SHORTS

I live in denim shorts during the summer but too much of a good thing can get, well, boring.  So lately I've been mixing it up with leather shorts and finding they're surprisingly almost as versatile as denim shorts!  They're so easily dressed up or down and I've been playing around with various fun ways to style them.  Below I've shown three different looks, and there's a bonus 4th look on my blog, A House in the Hills.  So, what do...

From Flowers to Fashion

I have to admit, being a blogger sometimes has some serious perks. Like when you get to sort through a rack of gorgeous clothes- because your working on a fashion story of course - and play dress up all day long. So here's the story. The other day, we did a big photoshoot here at my house. And, the flowers that we commissioned from Foret specifically for that shoot were so gorgeous, we wanted to make them work a little harder for us. So we came up with...

Activewear Round-up: Under $40

Ok so since we're on a bit of a health kick today, we thought it'd be fun to round-up some of our favourite inexpensive workout gear. To be completely honest, my choice in workout attire is abysmol at best. You know those t-shirts they hand out at basketball games and other such events? Yeah. It's not a pretty sight. But what I didn't realize was that CUTE activewear can be found at a variety of price...

DIY Velvet Jewelry Tray

The organizational nut within me is all sorts of excited about this next project. It's actually made from a wooden silverware tray, so it's really more of an upcycle project than anything else. That means it doesn't require any wood working skills - just a lot of hot glue! It's supremely easy and gives you all sorts of fun little compartments to ensure that your baubles stay in line (because there's nothing...

Summer Sandal Round-Up (Under $50!)

Putting together these fashion round-ups is always terribly dangerous for my wallet. In large, I try my best to avoid shopping altogether (I tend to splurge on travel in lieu of clothes), but it doesn't mean that I don't covet pretty fashion finds on the regular. The good news is that, at these prices, I could easily tuck a few of these guys in my shopping cart without doing a ton of damage. Give your toes a...

What to Pack for the Amalfi Coast

Alright SMPers, we're shifting focus today and talking all-things-Amalfi-Coast. My boyfriend and I recently returned from a week stint in what can only be described as the most beautiful place on earth (not that I'm biased or anything). I'll be sharing some of my photographic proof later on today, but in the meantime we need to ensure we're equipped with the essentials before we head off on our virtual journey. As a sleepy sea-side Italian slice of beachy, mountainy heaven, you really don't need...

DIY Bauble Necklaces

No word of a lie, while shopping not long ago I came across these almost-exact baubles in one of my favourite high end department stores. After a case of sticker shock, I slowly backed away but I haven't been able to get them out of my mind ever since. They're incredibly fun, and would instantly add a touch of wow factor to any ol' outfit. So when our in-house DIY dream girl came up with these guys it was...
