Weekend Wear | Floral Maxi Dress



 This may be one of my favorite non-work outfits of all time. I am completely obsessed with this floral wrap maxi dress. Somehow it manages to feel casual but fancy at the same time. Plus you get the whole "when I walk my dress flows around me like a total boss" thing; so that's basically always a fashion win haha.

Seriously though, I cannot say enough good things about this maxi dress. From the wrap detailing to the fact that it is lined to the knee only so the bottom is sheer, this dress is perfection! I also like that while it is a floral print maxi dress, the floral isn't overpowering. The grey and pale pink tones are understated.

I have been wanting this necklace for MONTHS, having seen it on so many bloggers instagram feeds. I finally pulled the trigger and ordered it a few weeks ago and could not be happier! The necklace is exactly as I expected - from the way the three layers naturally fall on your neck, to the quality of it - I would definitely recommend this piece of jewelry. If you watched my instastories while I was visiting my family in Ontario two weeks ago you may have noticed that I wore it literally every single day. #AddictedMuch?

In other news, I am in full-on planning mode for New York Fashion Week. I'm going to be there September 8 - 12th. I would love to hear any suggestions you guys may have about the best coffee shops to go, best restaurants, and any boutiques I need to shop at! Things will be hectic running to-and-from fashion shows, but I am determined to sneak in a bit of New York exploring while I am there. I'm even planning on getting up really early one morning so I can sneak in a run in Central Park before the day starts. ... We'll see if I succeed in actually making that happen haha.

Shopping | Summer Dresses under $100


The fact that summer is almost over is hard to believe. The silver lining though? Summer sales! Last week I posted the best wear-to-work sale items for summer, and this week I wanted to talk about summer dresses. With all the summer sales going on there are some amazing deals to be had on both wear-to-work dresses and fun summer weekend dresses. 

In fact, I was able to find a TON of amazing dresses that are now under $100. Many in fact are under $60! I have linked up my favorites below. These dresses 'made the cut' as my favorites because they feature things that are trendy right now (ruffles, off-the-shoulder, etc.) but aren't so trendy that they will be out of style by next summer. These are great dresses to wear now while knowing you can still style them next summer.

Two things: 


1) I just purchased one of the dresses below. Any guesses which one?! 


2) Stocking up on these dresses is also great if you have any fall/winter tropical vacations planned. I'm going to Aruba the first week of November on a girls trip with my mom (so excited!) Are you going anywhere warm this fall/winter?

Work Wear | A Floral Dress for Summer and Fall









I am sucker for dropped waist dresses ( remember this dress?) They are universally flattering, work appropriate, and still 'fun' enough to be dressed up for a night out or a brunch. It may be the most versatile dress silhouette. This dress caught my eye because of not only the dropped ruffled hem, but the gorgeous floral pattern and long sleeves.

As every working woman knows no matter how gorgeous and warm it is outside, office's are universally freezing (did you catch my facebook post about this? haha) So, I love finding long sleeve dresses to wear to work. As most of you know, because I am in court 9 days out of 10, I do have to wear a blazer. So, when I am out of court and working in the office or in meetings, the last thing I want to do is wear a blazer, so a long sleeve dress is a perfect solution. 

Today's shoes I actually borrowed from my mom, and I loved them! I wore them out while my mom and I went shopping one day and, surprisingly, my feet didn't hurt after. I may have to get a pair for myself - especially because they are now 50% off and are under $50!!

My bracelets are my go-to's (as anyone who has been reading this blog for a while now knows haha). They are also linked up below and are from Olive & Piper; my favorite online jewellery store. Remember you can always get 20% off any item at O&P with the code "LegalLee"

Finally, my Tory Burch bag. I heart this little guy so very much. It is from last season, but I have included this season's version below. Seeing as I am the queen of ridiculously oversized tote bags, it is rare that I opt for a small bag. I don't only many at all! This one though is a staple - perfect for a day out when you want your hands free to shop!
