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!

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.

Blushing Pink at the Christian Siriano Show

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone has had a wonderful week! I must confess, I have been enjoying my fall break in Rosemary with the kiddos and Mr. Wonderful, so my blog was on the back burner all week. There is nothing like a week away from home to recharge the batteries. Lucky for me, it also happened to be South Walton Fashion Week, so I was able to attend a number of shows and to see some amazing new emerging talent (as well as the Christian Siriano pre-show peek at Alys beach!) The weather was perfect – blue skies, puffy clouds and a great breeze. Since the show was outdoors, I decided to keep things fun and easy with this super cute pink full skirt (I had mine shortened) and a loose white button down shirt. To give the outfit a little “edge”, I added my studded pumps and a fun belt. I also grabbed my favorite new clutch from Misela (which I purchased at Atrium RTW at a recent trunk show; and the best part – I got to pick my colors and stitching, so of course it is blush pink….)

Edgy Yet Feminine: Tutu Dress & Leather

Hello lovelies!

 I am behind on posting this week but truthfully I am just having a hard time getting back into the swing of things post holiday.  But I should be back on schedule next week (fingers crossed)!

I want to share this absolutely adorable tutu dress which is so user-friendly.  You know I love a good tutu (see here) – they are extremely fun and flirty.  However, I do realize that not everyone wants to walk around in a tutu all the time.  This dress has the perfect element of sweet to it but with the addition of the leather jacket it becomes edgier.  I love the juxtaposition of the two elements which make it feel contemporary.  My accessories are to a minimum to keep things simple and sleek.

Black & White Asymmetrical Skirt

Hello lovelies!

It is so good to be home!  I just got back on Sunday night and I am absolutely delirious with jet lag.  As a result I will keep todays post short.  But briefly – my wedding was fantastic!  It was good to see so many family and friends after such a log time.  All the little kids I remembered are now in their teens and I barely recognized anyone.  It was great to spend a little bit of time and have some good laughs and fun memories.  I stopped in Dubai on the way back for a little girl time with my bestie and all I can say –  it was love at first sight!  My girlfriend really knows how to show a girl a good time because I ate at amazing food, did some fantastic shopping, and met some truly great women.  I can’t wait to go back in December!

Today I want to share this asymmetrical skirt that I wore in Dubai.  It is such cheeky fun and I kept it all simple with black T, black pumps and the pop of red came from my lips and my bag.

Tulle Makes Everything Better

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week!  My birthday week has been more fun than I was anticipating and full of surprises!  For me, the thing about surprises is that is I do not know I want one until I get one!  🙂
