Typically, my summer outfits contain more than their fair share of bright separates, but for some reason, this summer I am drawn to the nostalgic color palate of nudes, cognac, grays and ivory. There is something so pure about white lace, maybe the connotation with a wedding dress? Who knows, but all I know is I’m digging it.
But flat out neutral is a yawn fest, let’s be honest here. But what makes it dynamic and striking is the mixture of textures, patterns and shine. By fusing a fuzzy stripe sweater, a feminine lace skirt and a leopard belt it takes it form yawn to yay.
Side note: a pair of beautifully bronzes summer gams never hurts (still working on that part).

The looks around the blogosphere were fun, floraly and downright feminine. I am in full favor of the summertime trends. Take a gander at these lovely ladies and their fab outfits.
1. Mara from M Loves M looks pretty and proper in this lace number but turns up the intensity with a lively floral blazer and Barbie pink heels. I love the mix of pattern and texture!
2. I’m having a mini flashback to Confession’s of a Shopaholic with this look (the girl in the green scarf anyone?) by Nicoletta from Scent of Obsession. The peekaboo necklace under the flowing layer of the chiffon scarf is a stunner.
3. This design from Bryn’s blog, Bryn Alexandra, is breathtaking. Yes, I am well aware this isn’t an outfit, but I just had to include it anyway. Everything in interiors has been sans color for a while now s the punch of tropical teal is beyond refreshing. I also am plotting to find that cheetah chair on the right…
4. Anna from Fash Boulevard always has an eye for new and creative color combinations that is a never fail. This color-punched look screams “I’m a prepster in the Hampton’s for the weekend.” I need to buy that necklace!
5. Kiriath from Glammed by Tarin is a local blogger (we event went to the same high school!) who has a sassy edge and a fun outlook on fashion. Love the chic-ness of this look.
6. Tina from Tinacious rocks a feliene-inspired frock that has me purring. Plus, you can always count on that her photography will be fabulous.
If you want to be featured on next weeks “Tuesday Top,” email me at email@example.com and you might be aside some lovely ladies.

I could not be more excited to introduce you to Amber, or you may know her as the (read:beautiful) face from Face It Catalog. I have always loved her everlasting classy meets trendy gal style. Oh, this girl can also accessorize like there will be no J. Crew tomorrow! She is always is always on my daily blog roll.
So today we are showing you the LBD for summer, our ways. I chose to turn up the volume on my A-line frock with cobalt accents and a crisp-clean blazer for a classic meets trendy ensemble.
Amber chose to claim neutrality with her number adding on a casually-cute fedora (not to mention that gorgeous piece of arm candy hanging from her elbow).
