Last Call

Outfit details: J Crew blouse and trousers, Valentino shoes, J Crew and Chanel necklaces, Celine bag, Hermes scarf

You've seen these J. Crew cafe capris multiple times.  I think they were my favorite trousers for the fall and winter.  Even though we've had relatively balmy temps here in Boston, I figured I should squeeze these in at least another time or two before I tuck them away until next fall.

Hope you all have fun weekend plans.  Happy Friday!

Blue/Green/Neon

 

Outfit details: J Crew blouse (get it here or similar Equipment version here), Zara trousers and jacket (both from last year), Prada pumps, Proenza Schouler bag, Adia Kibur necklace (get it from Shopbop here)

I dressed optimistically for warm weather today even though I was cooped up inside all day and didn't get to enjoy it.  I mixed blues, greens, camel and some neon for what was the perfect wishing for spring outfit.

Pink/Bow/Leopard

Outfit details: Tara Jarmon dress (similar here and here), RED Valentino coat (darling red coat here), Talbot's cardigan, Jimmy Choo booties, Stella McCartney bag (get it here), Chanel and Coach necklaces, Hermes bangle

You might remember my posting last year (here) about Boston's Hot Pink Party which is held annually to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  The BCRF is a charity near and dear to my heart since one of my dearest friends is a breast cancer survivor after having been diagnosed on the eve of her 40th birthday.  Last year's Hot Pink Party raised over $1 million towards breast cancer research and over 90 cents of every dollar actually funds research.  This year's party is on May 17 at Boston's Intercontinental Hotel and you can buy tickets or donate to the BCRF here.

As for the outfit, I'm on the host committee for the event and wore this to our first meeting.  I figured the pink coat by RED Valentino was the perfect item to don for such an event.

Weekend Tidbits: Gucci Tornado

Sorry for the lack of posts the last few days.  I took a much needed break, but I'm back!

Gorgeous flowers sent by a dear and thoughtful friend which were the perfect pick me up just when I needed it.  Another very thoughtful friend sent along a bottle of Veuve Cliquot which I was remiss in not photographing.

A perfect cherry red Celine luggage tote purchased not by me for a change, but rather my sister.

One person I know calls me the Gucci Tornado.  I'd really be more aptly named the Chanel Tornado but you get the point right?  As we wandered around Saturday we came across this Gucci Fiat 500.  If I were to own a car, this could be right up my alley.  Perfectly small to drive Boston's streets, the right amount of Gucci branding and then I could really be the Gucci Tornado!

Schoolboy

Outfit details: J Crew blazer (old but similar here and here), J Crew cafe capris, Zara t-shirt, Nine West patent booties (old), Celine luggage tote, Hermes bangle and scarf

As I was performing some closet excavation recently, I found this old J Crew schoolboy blazer.  When I got dressed this morning I thought I would wear it since (I hope) as the winter gets closer to its end, there's only so much time left for such a warm and thick blazer.  I paired it with a pair of the J Crew cafe capris and a striped t-shirt from Zara.
