Off the Shoulder in Blanc|BusyWifeBusyLife

Off the Shoulder in Blanc

The trends this summer are quite clear. I have seen more shoulders over the past few months than ever before, and let's not get me started on the dramatic sleeves. But I have to be honest - I love them and I can't get enough. The only thing better than the #OTS (off the shoulder) trend is the blank canvas it leaves for your statement earrings. The combination of these three style elements makes for an eye-catching summer outfit.

Summer Style Exhibition

  While scrolling through Instagram I saw a photo of what seemed to be endless rows of lampposts, and instantly I knew this would be the coolest backdrop for a shoot. I think I was right! This iconic installation is a permanent fixture at the entrance of LACMA, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and it's one of the many attractions to see on the widespread grounds surrounding it. For such a striking art display, I decided to make my own statement in the form of fashion.

Summer Stripes Bwbl

Summer Stripes

Summer Stripes Look Oh, how I love summer! No matter how chic fall fashions are, the idea of being able to throw on a great dress and some sandals has its advantages. Earlier this week I was invited to a lovely dinner cruise by IHG Rewards, the loyalty program of Intercontinental Hotels. This cute and colorful striped dress seemed like the perfect outfit for sailing the Hudson. If you are looking for a fun way to mix up your stripe game, find a print with a multi-directional pattern for a flattering look. I got this dress in a last minute deal from Last Call Neiman Marcus (similar styles below). Since it's so striking, a neutral shoe and bag is necessary to keep the outfit from looking too busy. Check out my upcoming post to see how we enjoyed our evening with IHG Rewards and the Share Forever promotion. Summer Stripes Bwbl

All White Busy Wife Busy Life Cover

Chic All White

All White Busy Wife Busy Life Cover Call P. Diddy, I am ready for the party... the White Party that is! White denim has always been a summer essential, but when you pair them with a trendy white blouse, you have created a chic look that is sure to turn heads. Try not to spill on me, but nothing says summer like an all white look! I'd reserve this look for special occasions and cocktails events, but try to stay away from red wine if you can. These Joe's white distressed jeans have been my favorite purchase all summer. They are so comfortable and despite the distressed knee, the cropped leg actually dresses them up a bit. My BCBG high low blouse (sold out) was a great buy from, but I found some similar looks for you below. Wearing all white is a great opportunity to show off a chic handbag in any color under the sun. To balance out the look I would recommend going with a neutral shoe if you choose a bright colored bag or a bright shoe if you have a neutral clutch. Statement jewelry can take center stage when wearing all white and I'm rocking some gorgeous gold and jeweled pieces from the unlimited jewelry subscription service, Rocksbox.

Close up Floral Romper Busy Wife Busy Life

Floral Romper

Floral Romper Cover shotIf you're like me and feel your legs are one of your best assets, then a romper is the perfect way to show those stems off this summer. A romper, for me, is a key wardrobe piece for the warm weather. It looks good on most figures and can be worn during the day causally, but also dressed up for an evening out. I typically am not a big fan of florals, but this print had an abstract feel making it more of my style.
