Hello lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend!  I want to share this amazing top that I came across last week – it is perfectly on trend with ruffle front and the linen and cotton mix is perfect for summer time.  I have worn this top in a variety of ways already – it looks amazing on skinny white jeans and on flared beige or white pants.  And it is currently on sale – grab one before they run out!

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!

Criss-Cross Comfort

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  This is going to be a quick post because I am going to go enjoy this gorgeous day with a round of tennis!

I wore this outfit earlier this week to the University of Women’s Table Talk event – I came across this top online and immediately fell in love with it.  In Houston heat a thin cotton sleeve top with a trendy big sleeve is spot on for summer!  This top also comes in a beautiful blue gingham print which makes me swoon (purple gingham, and blue cotton – all great for the heat ahead).  I added a full skirt and fringe heels and was ready to roll.

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.

Comfy Chic Kicks

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a fabulous week!  Today I am all about the kicks!  It has been a few years of sporty flat wear and the inner New Yorker in me rejoices.  Every season in New York I was constantly looking for the perfect pair of flats that I could wear everywhere (and with everything) so my feet wouldn’t hurt.  If I was still in New York I would have more pairs of sneakers than I care to admit.  I saw these Joshua Sanders slip on sneakers and completely fell in love a few months ago.  But at the hefty price of $389  – I just could not make myself commit.  However, when I came across these bow sneakers for a third of the price I became fully committed!  They are the perfect pair of comfy yet chic kicks.  I have worn them dressed up under a skirt, with these fun joggers and even with skinny jeans and a leather jacket.  I cannot wait to take them when I travel  – they will elevate every look to the next level no matter how casual.

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.

Maroon Bustier & Distressed Denim

Hello lovelies!

This will have to be short and sweet today because I am battling a migraine headache.  I rarely get them but when I do they tend to linger.  I want to share this gorgeous bustier with preppy buttons and chic color combination  (it is also gorgeous in navy and black).  There is a sale going on right now so use code GOBIG16.  Since there is a bit of chill in the air (yeah for Houston) I added a top underneath for some extra warmth.  This would also look amazing on a midi skirt or flare jeans.  It has the ability to be dressed up and down!
