Full Sleeves & Bow Flats

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has been having a good week!  Just a quick post today about some of my favorite things on rotation right now – big sleeve top and bow flats!  I came across this fun $24 bag and it reminded me of the Chloé bag (seen all over the place right now) and I had to have it.  Isn’t it divine?

Gingham Mania

Hi lovelies!

Hope everyone is enjoying this amazing weather!  Gingham is no longer just for tablecloths – it has been transformed into fun dresses, tops, skirts and even shoes for summer.  Nothing says summer time like gingham.  It is a lightweight cotton that drapes beautifully and is perfect for summer heat.  I wore this outfit to lunch and got tons of compliments.  I belted my dress and added fun flats.  I became instantly brunch ready!

Red Dionysus Blooms Bag Inspiration

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I am in a red kind of mood these days (see here and here) and this entire outfit started with my Gucci floral bag.  Gucci has been having a crazy few years!  You cannot open a fashion magazine or a look up trends without coming across Gucci – backless loafers, amazing bags and even the midi pleat skirt seems to have all emerged from the Gucci collections.  The new creative designer Alessandro Michele took over in 2015 and things have not been this hot for the couture house since the Tom Ford years (I am swooning remembering those collections and cherish the pieces even today).

I adore this bag!  It is beautifully made – the blossoms are hand painted on the leather to give it a chic yet girly feel and I love the silver hardware (which is a refreshing change of pace).  I have worn this bag with everything from casual jeans to a night out with Mr. Wonderful.  It is a great investment piece and a real show stopper!

Pleated Midi Skirt Trend, Lace Top & White-T

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone is having a great week!  I must confess I have taken up tennis these days (again) and I am completely addicted.  It is the most beautiful time of the year to be outside enjoying this amazing weather but the the side effect of my new-found passion is that I have been a bit behind in posting.

One of my favorite recent trends is the midi skirt and it is still going strong for spring fashion.  It is flattering on all body types and looks great dressed up and down. I have them in a range of colors – blush pink, forest green, grey, leather and a basic black. I have also worn this skirt with a fun sweatshirt and some skater kicks while running errands. It is perfect for every occasion!

Big Statement Sleeves

Hello lovelies!

I have been fighting a migraine all day today – my post is short and sweet today.  Today I want to talk about sleeves – big gigantic, fluffy sleeves!  Last summer was all about the cold shoulder but this year that trend has been transformed to voluminous sleeves.  They can be found in every possible configuration and I really enjoy playing with the volume ratio top to bottom.  They look great with just skinny jeans, wide legs pants and even a pencil skirt.  I paired my big sleeve top with a circle skirt and some heels and I was ready to roll.  If you haven’t tried this trend yet – it is worth trying and I have included some fun options below.

Red Flowers & Pink Midi for Spring

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a great week!  I wanted to share a quick outfit post today about mixing some more colors with my favorite blush pink.  And today it is totally about red – I am obsessed with this color right now!  Mr.  Wonderful loves when I wear red and the thing is I rarely indulge in this color.  Depending on skin tone you have to invest in the correct red tone.  With my olive complexion and yellow undertones a deep dark red is the way to go.  If your skin is lighter with more peach tones – I would recommend a more orange-red (like this top here).

Spring is around the corner (in Houston it is well into summer on some days) but nothing screams spring like flowers.  So cliché but so true.  I saw this skirt at Zara and I love the length, the color combinations and the beautiful floral print.  It is all around gorgeous and for $69 it is a steal!  I wanted to play up the beautiful red flowers so I added a red bell sleeve top (sleeves are all the rage this summer) and topped it off with a neutral bag and shoes.  Viola – ladies lunch here I come!

How to Combine Pink & Burgundy

Hello lovelies!

It has been too long since my last post and truth be told I have been slacking.  The rush of the New Year has left me a bit under the ball (or bus – depending upon the day).  I want to share a fun outfit I recently wore to the ladies BAFTA lunch.  I have to confess I had completely forgotten about the event even though it was on my planner (iPhone quirks).  My sweet girlfriend texted me “the soup is getting cold” – I was perplexed by this until her next text “the luncheon?”   So I got up and quickly transformed from my pajamas and ran out to support the Brits.  Considering everything I was pretty happy with the final result!

I adore pink (as you know) so I am always looking for new color to combine with my favorite hue.  Black is an obvious, grey is a match made in heaven, white is delightful in summer and I added burgundy as a fun fall staple.

Fall Trends: Choker & Platforms

Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a great week!  Just wanted to share a quick post today.  I came across this top and I adore it.  The double panel in front is amazing because it ensures I do not have to wear a camisole underneath.  Makes the top much more user-friendly!  I added a few of my favorite fall trends to complete the outfit – choker and platforms!

Casual Monday: Lace Trend

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!  I couldn’t post Friday because I was playing in the Silver Raquets tennis tournament.  The best weekend to have an outdoor tennis event.  It was cool and breezy pretty much the entire time.  It was a fun event and great to get back into something that I love.

Lace is a huge trend this fall and it is available in nearly every form.  From dresses to tops to skirts.  I love the delicacy of lace and the beautiful texture and patterns that it creates in one solid color.  It is like wearing print but not.  I came across this top and just fell in love with the color and shape.  I also appreciated the fact that the lace top came with a matching color tank top.  It made the top so much easier to wear.  The pink is my favorite but I really like the black and white options as well.  I paired the top with flared denim but it would be equally fun with skinnies or a pencil skirt.
