Apologies for the radio silence around here - things got pretty busy what with going to Seattle and then coming back and temping and then it being the fourth with people visiting - I feel like I haven't caught a breath until now!

Anyway, on to the outfit above - I fell in love with this top the moment I walked into the store - the beading is gorgeous and I love the simplicity of the white silk, and of course the fact that it's nice and flowy for this ridiculously hot summer we're having. At first I wasn't sold on the hole in the back, then realized I could always keep it classy by throwing a cardigan on top (it's pretty but demure from the front), or wear it for a night out with a black lace bra underneath. Solved!

You will probably know by now that I adore a simple black and white outfit, but I had to add a little color with these bright purple heels I scored at the Barneys Warehouse Sale last fall. They're the perfect shade of my favorite color, and I love the look of a caged shoe. Plus, they add just the right amount of edginess to an otherwise pretty outfit - at least in my opinion!

I hope everyone had a happy fourth!
