Looking for a way to stay chic without going bright or pastel? Look no further: Get inspired by this sophisticated and playful take on two-tone neutrals for Spring & Summer.
Platform sandals? Check! Sleeveless dress? Check! Straw satchel? Check!
This chic look centers around an up-to-date beige sleeveless dress by Hoss Intropia, a Spanish brand that I have recently gotten into. Add on playful accessories like an Alexander McQueen knuckle ring clutch in Buff, paired with two-tone Elizabeth & James heels, and you’re well on your way to fabulous!

Make New Friends, But Keep the Old…
Edited by AsheMischief
Because fashion bloggers love both silver & gold!
Okay, that was a bit of a cheesy, childhood song for those Stateside, but I did notice one thing this week– fresh new faces and old familiar ones. From long time contributors like Mademoiselle Robot and The Musings of Ondo Lady, to new (-to-me) Our Ocean, Links á la Mode is an amazing way to meet new bloggers and discover new territories. Think of today as Make a New Friend Day on Links á la Mode…read new blogs for a fresh dose of inspiration and revisit your favorites to remember why you love them!
As always, we’ve got a delightful mash-up of posts, too… from how to score review samples to a thoughtful post on The Uniform Project and lots of great summer clothes and jewelry. Be sure to check out the forums too, as there are several great contests going on!
