Neon and Gold

Neon and Gold

 

Nothing is better in summer than neon, except maybe neon and gold. The pair is unexpected but refreshing. My first instinct would be to pair neon with subtle accents or even cool silver for the contrast, but something about neon and gold just works! I paired this gorgeous J. Crew dress here with fabulous gold leaf earrings and a chunky gold bangle, both from Burns Jewellers. The lucite clutch and nude heels are just the icing on the cake with this outfit. Will you pair neon and gold this summer?

Flash Tats

April 29th, 2014

Apparently, Flash Tats were all the rage at Coachella. Naturally, I found this out by Insta-stalking every person I know who went to Coachella to live vicariously through them. I imagined wearing the too-cool-for-words bohemian get-ups but didn’t envy the gross camping situation. If I ever make it to Coachella (which I would only go to for the sake of wearing said outfits), I would definitely need to A) snag a hotel and B) wear a plethora of these Flash Tats. I was uh-bsessed with these from the moment I saw someone rocking them in the desert. They basically work like the old school bubble gum temporary tattoos of yesteryear, but look like glam jewelry – count me in!

Anyhoo, I was talking about how much I love these and the hubby took note and bought me a few packs for our one year anniversary this past Sunday (the perfect paper gift). I can’t wait to rock these all summer long…

Fab Friday Finds

March 14th, 2014

fab friday finds

Time for some spring florals! I saw these amazing Marc by Marc Jacobs floral pants and just had to plan a fab Friday finds look around them. I love the colors in the pants and they just go perfectly with this floral necklace and bright flats. The Rebecca Minkoff bag ties back in with the main color of the pants but is still a statement piece on its own. I would pair this with a crisp white tee – perfection! Happy Friday!

Chunky Sweaters and Leather Leggings

February 12th, 2014

plaid coat and leather leggings

One of my go-to outfits this winter has been chunky sweaters and leather leggings. I love the juxtaposition of the comfy, cozy knits and the sleek leather leggings. For even more warmth, I have been throwing on my plaid coat, which adds a fun pattern into the mix for the ultimate in pattern and texture play. The leather leggings can be real, which tends to be a bit (ok way) pricey, or faux like these high waisted leggings. To keep your legs looking nice and long, pair the pants with black pointy toe booties.

I am planning on meeting the frenchman in New York later next week when he finishes a work trip. It will be my very first trip to the big apple, and I can’t wait to rock a version of this outfit there. I think I may have to throw on a hat and gloves and another long sleeve tee under the sweater to cut it in the frigid cold, but it will look fab nonetheless. Feel free to chime in with any must-do’s in New York!

Bell Bottoms

January 15th, 2014

bell bottoms

I love me some bell bottoms. Back in middle school, I had a fabulous pair of velvet leopard print bell bottoms. I adored them! When everyone else was wearing baggy boy jeans or the oh-so-popular puffy Adidas jacket, I rocked it out in those velvet bell bottoms like Steven Tyler himself. Well, a nerdier, pimply, glasses-wearing version of him. It is no wonder why I am still uh-bsessed with these pants! I just love the hippie feel of them and with the prints currently at Free People, they are better than ever. I hope to score a pair of these and rock them all spring long! Shop the look below…
