Shopping for a new summer fragrance is one of the highlights of the season. I don’t always enjoy smelling like insect repellant (generally my go-to for all outdoor events) so when I do step out in the summer I try to find a scent that’s light, welcoming and lasting. Last year I enjoyed Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc and Neroli Portofino but on a recent random stop at the Jo Malone boutique in City Center I was introduced to Star Magnolia. I like to blend Jo Malone fragrances it makes me feel unique, so I started to mix and when I spritzed the Orange Blossom with the Star Magnolia it was instant love! Try it for yourself and let me know your thoughts in the comments.

Note – Star Magnolia is a Limited Edition fragrance. It’s already sold out on the Jo Malone and Nordstrom websites but try visiting a Jo Malone counter or try Blu Mercury and Neiman Marcus online.

All winter long I dreamed of these Aquazzura sandals. I watched with anticipation and hope that they would go on sale. Alas the time came with the summer in sight just in time to for the perfect event. Thank you Net a Porter for having my size! While digging for a clutch on my closet shelf I came across the sequined baby I’ve had for at least 12-15 years (look stop trying to calculate my age). I generally disdain a matchy-matchy look but I rocked all white so the pops of color were a welcome accent.
