I have been in the mood for stiletto heels and pumps lately, which is a change for me because usually in the summer I love to wear wedges more often.  The good thing about pumps is they always make your legs look good and extra long.  These Miu Miu suede pumps were a great sale snag at Barneys last winter.  They are this light pink or rose color, but the product description originally said nude.  Either way, I love them.  Suede pumps are easier to dress down for daytime wear than patent leather pumps, which is what I like about them.  These also have a taper toe and they aren't quite as high as some of my other pumps.

I wore them with these beautiful MINKPINK floral shorts that Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me.  I love the fabric on these shorts as it is so soft.  I think for the price point you really cannot go wrong with these.  I have wanted a pair of high-waisted floral shorts for quite some time and these really fit the bill.  Brands like MINKPINK are great because you can find those trendy items you want for summer for a fraction of the price.  Some of you may remember a couple little black dresses by MINKPINK that I wore last summer on Fashion Snag.  The quality is also really nice for the price as far as I am concerned.  I also like BB Dakota for trendy items at a cheaper price.  The crepe fabric on these MINKPINK shorts keeps your legs cool, but the longer length makes you extra comfortable.  Also, these shorts come with a detachable black leather belt.  Sometimes brands and designers use faux leather belts with items, which really bothers me if they are charging a lot for the piece.  You can use the code STARSTYLE for 15% off your order on regular priced items at Tea Leaf Clothing. 

I paired the floral shorts with this floral lace racerback tank by LnA.  I remember when LnA came out with all their lace tees and tanks and people were going wild for them.  I am glad that lace is always in style.  This tank is perfect for the 98 degree weather we have been having here.  I like wearing it with just a knit bra underneath.  I liked the floral on floral concept in this outfit due to the floral on both the tank and the shorts.  I think the play on textures is what made it work.  For accessories I went with the girly floral look and added some Chanel pearl earrings and pearl sunglasses as well as a Tiffany & Co. dragonfly ring.  I usually try to keep the jewelry to a minimun, but it felt right in this case to add some pearls due to the floral motif.

Wildfox Couture Wildfox 77 Cheerleader Crop Top in Clean Black - Thanks to Tea Leaf Clothing

Grey Ant 2 The Point Mini Dress in Stone Print

Camilla Skovgaard Cutout Suede Ankle Boots in Black

Chanel Sunglasses in Blue - Last seen here with Naven skirt and Givenchy wedges

The lovely Karina from Tea Leaf Clothing sent me this adorable crop top by Wildfox Couture.  It is made in the USA and features a vintage inspired graphic print.  I especially like the orange lettering against the heather black of the tee.  I styled this tee differently from the last Wildfox Couture tee Karina gave me.  I used this cheerleader crop top to dress down a fancy Grey Ant dress that I wore with a blazer a long time ago on Fashion Snag. 

This Grey Ant dress has ruching detail and a bustier bodice, which you can catch a glimpse of when I lift my top up in the video.  I loved the print of this dress and that is why I bought it.  I think a dress like this can do double duty when you layer a cropped tee over it.  Grey Ant dresses are always amazing and I wait until they go on sale to snag them at a great price.  I have worn other Grey Ant pieces on Fashion Snag before, including a cute bow skirt.  As always, you can click on any brand or designer in the lefthand sidebar and it will take you to all my posts that feature that designer. 

I wore my most comfortable pair of heels by Camilla Skovgaard.  Thanks to the saw platform on these things I can walk for miles.  I also like the heart cutout in the front.  I have way too many Camilla Skovgaard shoes, but I have a good reason for that.  Her shoes are never painful and I think that is because a woman designed them, but I could be biased.

Elie Tahari Francesca Skirt in Black/Gold

Hunter Dixon Phoenix Top in Mint - Snagged off Gilt.com

Chanel Classic Sunglasses in Brown - Last seen here with Helmut Lang tank and Derek Lam sandals

Camilla Skovgaard Ankle Buckle High Heel Sandals in Blue/Black

I was stalking this skirt by Elie Tahari for quite some time waiting for the chance to snag it once it went on sale.  Even though it was hot today I still wanted to wear it because it is so beautiful.  It is my first purchase of anything by Elie Tahari, but it will definitely not be my last.  The vibrant gold color of this skirt is what caught my eye and it looks even better than what I expected from the retail photos.  I don't have anything like this skirt in my closet, which makes it even sweeter.  The hemline is a little big longer than what I usually wear, but I can get used to it.  I felt very ladylike in this outfit overall.  The skirt is made mostly of silk and a little bit of metallic. 

I like pairing gold with minty green and other contrasting colors.  I almost wore a white silk camisole, but decided I wanted to be daring since this is the debut of the skirt.  Next time I will pair it with something white I think.  I purposely bought this top on Gilt Groupe before buying the skirt because I knew I would one day own the skirt and I thought they would be the perfect match.  Gilt Groupe had a new designer/brand on board called Hunter Dixon so I took a look and the first piece that caught my eye was this mint colored blouse.  It is made in the USA and 100% silk.  It came in a yellow and a pink color as well, but I think the mint was the best color for the top.  I like the big buttons and the fact that I can roll up the sleeves and they actually stay put thanks to the design of the shirt.  I have a mint silk dress I wore last summer by Isabel Lu and the color is really similar to the color of this Hunter Dixon top.  For shoes I wore my Camilla Skovgaard gladiator sandals that I bought over 2 years ago.  They are a metallic black color and very comfortable.  Halle Berry and a slew of other celebrities wore these heels when they first came out.  I still love them today as much as I did back then.
