Monday Style: Guest Post: Summer Whites

It is Monday and I am super-excited to start this new week with a guest post by Suzonne Stirling of Urban Comfort. A professional stylist who's work has been published in Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Day, Parents, Nick Jr., as well as other publications, Suzonne is a true master of her craft. She has a perfect eye for timeless, elegant and graceful style, and I am simply honored she agreed to put together this beautiful post for my readers. Thank you, Suzonne!!!


Hello readers of navyblueshoe! I was so flattered when invited to share a post here. So thank you to Olga for having me today!

I'm a huge fan of neutrals, and done right, I don't think they ever have to be boring. Take white, for instance. It's the perfect backdrop for summer, but it's hardly one-dimensional. Artfully layered, it takes on different personalities, from bright and fresh to subtle and moody. The key is to mix textures and tones, and I always like to throw in some elements from nature, natural foliage or wood, for balance. Fresh, simple, and just right for the season.

Wednesday Decor: Blue Hippo

After Barb Blair of Knack Studios posted about hippo-the-watering-canister she got from Target, I rushed into the store to get one of my own. You may still find it at your local Target. It is located in One Dollar section of the store. And the price of it is... $1.00!
I love the shape & the color of it. My cactus plant has a new friend now!

Monday Style: Coral Summer

Happy Monday! The beginning of June is getting us closer to the official summertime. This time of the year makes me want to keep it simple: wear a beautiful airy dress + a little bit of color on my lips (built-in SPF 15 is a plus!) + a pretty headband to add some old-world glamour (and keep the hair away from my face).

PATTERN: One can never go wrong wearing a Missoni pattern: Head Band
FRESH LIPS: I am thrilled Fresh added a new color to their collection: Sugar Coral
MAXI DRESS: Love the back of this dress
