I hope your summer has been awesome so far. My favorite season of the year is drawing to a close but I am so excited about all the beautiful fall colors and the lovely new frocks we have coming in store. In addition, the must have color for fall is neither drab nor dreary, it’s the ever versatile- BLUE. I especially love cobalt blue. It works on most skin tones and a little pinch in the accessory department is sure to liven up any wardrobe or outfit. Yes, emerald green is still going strong but pretty blues are having a moment.
If blue is not your thing, the good folks at pantone have curated a nice visual of all the “must have” colors for fall. There’s a color for every personality and style.

I hope your week is off to an awesome start. I was having a ho- hum mundane Monday when I got a message followed by a photo of stylish mum of two Monica in the Ladyee Boutique feather print midi dress from a sweet client. This is one of my fave dresses ever, I love the print, the length and it’s just super flattering (thanks to the lovely print, it camouflages any semblance of a tummy.) It’s one of those dresses that spells fashion forward with little effort.
Monica obviously takes the dress to a whole new level with her super chic clutch purse and platforms. Let’s not even begin to discuss her pretty glowy skin. Check out Monica’s blog for stylish tips and more.
Make it a productive week girls!
Just a quick post to wish you a fantastic Fourth of July. I hope you have a blast with your loved ones. Tomorrow, I’ll be relaxing and whipping up a few special treats for my family. Here’s what I have on my menu:

In addition, we have an awesome sale in full swing at Ladyee Boutique, plus 30% off the entire shop. We are always happy to serve you.
A little Fourth of July color inspiration:
Hello lovelies- I hope your week is off to an awesome start. There are so many fashion misconceptions out there, in the next few blog posts I’ll discuss three of them.
Most high fashion and runway models look nothing like the real everyday woman, however we live in a culture that constantly sends the message of extreme thinness being the ideal figure and in many cases the only way to guarantee looking stylish in the myriad of seasonal trends we have to sift through. “Your only fashion ideal should be you at your best, dressing your current body stylishly.” Any woman irrespective of size, shape or height can be well dressed. Simply focus on your body as it is now, not 3 months of extreme cardio from now, not ten pounds from now, but right now. This in turn makes it easier to make realistic and flattering wardrobe choices. As cliche as it may sound, the more you embrace your curves and uniquely beautiful imperfections, the more you hone in on what works best for your figure. So make the very best of what you have in the moment.

I know it’s been a while. My sincere apologies for the hiatus, I’ve been traveling quite a bit the past month. I hope your week has been awesome and the spring months are rolling along well. I was having a “thought provoking” conversation with my five year old a few days ago and could not help but ponder how fast time flies. I remember him being a sweet little infant and now he asks why, what and where at every turn (he’s still sweet by the way.) This brings me to Ladyee Boutique, 5 years ago I opened my online and mobile shop and set out to help women look and feeling amazing , I am so glad I did as I can’t imagine having filled the last five years of my professional life with anything other than doing what I truly love. It’s been a whirlwind of learning, challenges, dips in the road and awesome highs.
I absolutely love bringing pretty frocks to you awesome ladies and have hopefully helped you look and feel amazingly confident. Nothing makes my heart happier than a satisfied return customer. Thank you so much for trusting Ladyee Boutique over the years, thank you for the sweet letters and many referrals, I appreciate you from the bottom of our hearts.
As expected, not only do I have clients turned friends, most of my sweet friends are also now loyal Ladyee Boutique clients. One of my dear friends is one of such clients and she sent me an awesome photo yesterday.
