I hope everyone had a great weekend! I am a bit behind because my mom is in town and I am just being lazy with her (best fun ever). I wanted to share a quick post on my travel outfit to Miami. I am always cold so I am always looking for a fun lightweight jacket to keep me warm especially on airplanes. This bomber jacket is a gorgeous blue/gray color and it did not wrinkle at all. It is the gift that kept on giving! I added flares, my new favorite earrings (big statement earrings are having a HUGE moment) and some fun sunnies and I was ready to travel!
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!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Sadly I was under the weather all weekend so it has been two days of NyQuil and endless sleep for me! But before I crashed I wore this fun outfit Friday. I am obsessed with my casual bomber find (best $30 I spent) and wanted to restyle it with pants (see here styled with skirt)! It was slightly chilly so I kept it draped on my shoulders but as I got sicker throughout the day I wrapped myself right up in this jacket. I kept to a palate of blues ranging from dark navy to chambray. I added some neutral shoes and I was ready to roll.
Hope you had a great week! I came across this bomber jacket this week and fell in love! It is a light weight chambray and perfect for cold restaurants in Houston and I cannot wait to wear it with pants (insert swooning emoji here). Best part of all…..it is under $30!
I wanted to dress it up for a ladies luncheon so I added a full skirt and some platform heels. Isn’t it wonderful when the party favor is a book and seeds to plant? I am dying to read this and then I am going to watch the movie with Michael Fassbender (he’s kind of dreamy).
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.
It has been a long week – a case of strep is in the house! It has moved from my little one and is now centered on my daughter and Mr. Wonderful. It is only a matter of time before my oldest and I succumb. So I have to keep my post short and sweet today due to sleep deprivation. I wore this out last night for a quick date night dinner to Uchi (I am still silly in love with that place). I came across this T-shirt at Target and love the cheeky frog on it. The vibrant colors on the gray background make it the perfect mix of sober yet fun. I added my flares (also styled here in NYC) and I was ready to roll (long live the flares).
I hope you have had a wonderful week! I want to discuss a fun trend that is still going strong this spring – fringe! This trend was introduced in the fall, but it really accelerated this spring and was seen all over Fashion Week – from Alexander Wang, Ralph Lauren, Givenchy and Marissa Webb to Banana Republic. Fringe epitomizes fun and whimsy, and my motto has always been fashion should be fun! What can be more fun than fringe? I started with this neutral blush pink midi fringe skirt, which is so flirty and feminine, and I added some structure with my current favorite jacket (also seen here and here). A mix of masculine and feminine is always modern. I added my neutral shoes to elongate my legs (I recommend picking a neutral that matches you skin tone – more peachy or beige depending on your undertones), grabbed a straw bag and off I went to dinner….
Also FYI – in case you are looking for new denim flares or skinnies – there is a friends and family event going on at J BRAND – 25% off with code JBFF25. Click immediately before they run out of sizes!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I spent the weekend enjoying the sunshine and even went out to the Antique Fair off I-45. It was a few hours spent in the sunshine hunting for treasures. An ideal way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
The off the shoulder trend has morphed into a shoulder-less trend for Spring. It is a very cool way to be sexy and show some skin but still retain modesty coverage. I am a huge fan! While at the beach I came across this blush pink shoulder less dress and had to have it. It is very light weight and the pale pink is great for tanned skin. It was a bit chilly so I threw on my current favorite jacket. I have pretty much been living in this jacket since I picked it up.
I enjoy multi-use clothing and I can’t wait to use the dress as a cover up for the beach this summer (insert swoon emoticon).
Greetings from paradise! I apologize for the missing posts this week, but I have been swamped with getting our beach house ready. I forgot how much goes into a new house (e.g. not just plates and utensils but mixing bowls, place mats, containers, hooks, beach towels….the list is endless.) I have pretty much exhausted all the stores and the local Target is now bare! But I have also been going out for dinner and this is what I wore last night.
I adore Olivia Palermo and when I saw that she has a collaboration with Chelsea 28 – I had to try everything. These are two of my favorite pieces – the shearling vest and the jumpsuit. The vest is amazing! It is extremely soft, the dark blue hue is beautiful and I love the peplum style. It would look great as a topper on pretty much everything. I have not historically owned many jumpsuits, even though I love rompers, but the cut out back is super sexy and a great way to do elevated denim. The clean lines are very chic, and the combo is spot on perfect! I added the belt and I was ready to roll.
P.S. I took these photos on my new beach house porch….dreamy!
I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! The weather here is currently all over the place (hence the crazy wind in my hair in the photos.) I have a story behind the t-shirt that I am wearing for this post! The shirt is a caricature of Coco Chanel, one of my all-time favorites, accompanied by the statement “I don’t give a chic”. I bought this t-shirt at a Souk (market) in Dubai because of my Mom. Even when my Mom is really upset, she does not use foul language – however, recently in a discussion she surprised me with the term “I don’t give a shiiiiiiit” (the i sounded like a very long e.) It made me laugh out loud, and I couldn’t resist this t-shirt as a result.
I love pencil skirts! They have an understated elegance and sex appeal. This gray metallic tweed can be dressed up or down, as I have done here with the addition of the whimsical t-shirt (this skirt would also look great with some All-Stars and a white-T.) I also love it more polished with a white button down, and here I kept the rest of the outfit upscale with my cape (super hero moment) and stilettos.
