Today I’m showing off one of my favorites for this season – Peacock prints!

It’s fun, bold, and offers an endless array of styling opportunities. Here I went for a sweet, daytime look featuring this adorable dress from Trendy Mondays, a sleek neutral handbag from Vaska, and colorful t-strap pumps.

I especially love the buttoned-up back details of this dress – Combined with the demure peplum, subtly puffed sleeves, and gathered waist, it creates a unique and acutely feminine frock.

Perfect for Spring!

MCLV Style: Vacation Maxi

Did you enjoy the first post from the new Styling 101 series that I posted on Tuesday? It was a lot of fun to style and photograph so I hope it got you in the mood for some yacht-chic gear for America’s Cup!

With this week – and Summer – on the verge of being over I thought today would be a good day for some sun worshipping fashion. So welcome to another MCLV Style post where we will be discussing vacations. Primarily because I refuse to let go of Summer.

I wish that these shots had been taken on a tropical island somewhere with waves crashing nearby and umbrella drinks chilling just out of reach instead of in my “backyard.” I use sarcastic quote marks because I live in San Francisco. Land of small kitchens and no grass.  Le sigh. Clearly someone is in desperate need of a vacation, and luckily for this someone, I’m heading to New York City this weekend for the much anticipated IFBCON.

What do you like to wear when you’re on vacation? Obviously it depends on the destination, but nothing says tropical vacation to me more than a maxi, what about you?
