Outfit Highlight: Gold Buttons and Macarons

Happy Monday, my friends!

We finally reached the high 80s over the weekend. This is what summer is supposed to be like and I am not complaining. The best part of summer is the fact that I get to wear shorts, skirts, as well as skorts, like this one from Zara. I love the gold button detail on this skort. They give a nautical vibe, one of my favorite looks for summer. And I know we love our denim cutoff shorts but what about about a denim cutoff top! The frayed edges on this Zara top adds a relaxed casual feel to this boxy denim shirt. I could seriously wear this outfit every day.

Speaking of summer favorites, a craving of mine in the summertime are light yet satisfying desserts. Very few desserts that I like fit the bill. Popsicles are light and I love them but they’re not quite satisfying. Anything chocolate is super satisfying to me personally, but they are almost always the opposite of light. Enter macarons. They’re light and airy and extremely satisfying. Read more about them below.

So let’s talk about macarons and how much I love them. Is it just me, but every time I see macarons in a fashion post, my eyes totally zero in on them and nothing else seems to matter. I even tried to make them at one point…and failed miserably. That’s why I’m so happy to have been introduced to MacarOn Cafe! They specialize in macarons, hence the name, and they have several stores throughout NYC and over a hundred retailers across North America. And the best news ever is that they ship anywhere in the US and Canada! They use 2 Day Air to ship out these charmingly packaged macaron sets to ensure freshness.

So if you’re planning a party anytime soon, perhaps a bridal shower, a birthday party, a ladies’ get together or even dinner at home with friends, these refined French treats will definitely add a little flair to your event. Visit MacarOn Cafe for details.

  1. What a beautiful denim blouse and fun little white mini. It ended up being such a fresh and clean, modern look. And I have to try that Macaroon cafe. They look delicious and pretty packiage, too.

  2. Hello Cynthia! Can we swap weathers for at least a week??? I can certainly wear lots of shorts and mini skirts but I can barely be outside in the heat for more than 15 minutes! I can’t stop thinking about “fall” right now. I guess that is the price for living in Florida:-) You look amazing wearing that outfit Cynthia. Both the top and the skort are super cute and I love them both. The macaroons look delicious but can you believe I have never had one!!!! Hope your week goes amazing. Sending you and your beautiful family lots of love and blessings. XOXO, Jeannette

  3. First, I want to say thank you for all the kind words of support you’ve expressed to my family and also over my departure from Manic Monday. You’ve been such a fantastic friend and supporter Cynthia and I can’t thank you enough! Second, I loved seeing you in In Style this month! (Or wait…was it People Style Watch? I forget, I just know it was a magazine I really like! LOL) Third, you look beautiful and polished as always in this outfit.

  4. I LOVE this outfit. You are just so pretty and you always look so stylish yet tasteful. I appreciate that. I love the rough hem denim (I have a similar top – isn’t it to fun?!) paired with the asymmetrical hem skort.

  5. I have been on a dessert kick lately, but have yet to score any Macarons. These come packaged so pretty, I really feel the need to try them out! Love the outfit too, it’s the perfect balance!

  6. what a cute look! I love that top! And that skort and shoes are fab! I have never had a macaron before, but if I ever see one I’m buying it and trying it, because they are certainly trending and I’m seeing photos of them everywhere!

  7. I am swooning over those gold buttons! SO adorable! You always have such perfect, put together looks! Since we left to travel, I have been struggling to find ways to mix and match what I have, so it is nice to see such beautiful inspiration photos!

  8. These pieces were meant for you. That frayed hem is so cute and love the buttons on the skort. You do realize that fall will be here before we’re ready, right? That’s okay by me though. It’s my favorite season.

  9. Oh gosh, do I love macrons! I had never heard of this place, but I am def. going to drop a hint to get me some from there for a special occasion. I do have a birthday coming up. 😉 And, that denim cut off top is SO unique and I bet it goes with a lot in your closet. Love it!

  11. I have to admit that I have never tried a macaron!! Can you believe that?! Thanks for the links so I can try one now(: I am all about denim and this is just the cutest top!! Susan
