I've got the blues...

Friday started on a good note.  I was packed and ready to go to NYC for the weekend not only to see my sis who lives there, but also my mother who was coming up from Florida.  Knowing I would be in my freezing office and then on to the usually quite cold Amtrak Acela, I wore blue jeans for the first time in ages.

Equipment blouse, J Brand jeans

Plus I covered up with one of my favorite Zara blazers.  And speaking of Zara blazers, you've likely seen the multitude of summer blazers I have from Zara.  After a lap in my local Zara they also have many fall versions so I recommend checking them it if that's your thing.

Zara blazer, Miu Miu bag, Valentino shoes, J Crew necklace

But sadly, Hurricane Irene put a damper on my weekend plans.  My suitcase and I ended up rolling ourselves home from work Friday with no NYC trip on the weekend agenda and with my mother staying in Florida.  In the grand scheme of things this was not the end of the world but suffice it to say, I had a bit of the blues this weekend.

Mental Telepathy

DVF top, J Brand jeans, Miu Miu oxfords and bag

In keeping with this week's colored trouser theme, I wore some light pink J Brand legging jeans with a floaty DVF top. 

Kenneth Jay Lane cuff, Nava Glazer necklace (long), Chanel pendant necklace

When I spoke to my sister this morning, she had a fashion question and was wondering if she could wear a floaty DVF top with skinny jeans and oxfords.  I laughed that I was wearing the very same thing.  Even odder is that she almost wore this EXACT top with a pair of pink trousers.  Go figure!

Happy Friday!!

More Bright Trousers

DVF top, RED Valentino trousers, J Crew sandals, Hermes belt

I'm pulling out another pair of bright trousers today.  Remind me if I wear any blacks or neutrals for the next couple of weeks that there will be plenty of time for that before we know it!  I really do love the bright orange color of these RED Valentino trousers plus the wide cuffed leg.

Hermes bangle, Miu Miu bag

Pink Pants

Shoshanna top, Current/elliott jeans, Chanel flats, J Crew necklace, Amrita Singh bracelet, Celine tote, Hermes scarf

As I got dressed this morning in these hot pink current/elliott jeans and white Shoshanna top, I realized this was almost the same outfit I wore yesterday.  

Kate Spade jacket, Zara top and trousers, J Crew sandals, J Crew and Chanel necklaces, Miu Miu bag

I guess white top, pink pants was the formula for a couple of days.  Maybe I'm trying to cram my summer brights in before it's too late!

Lulu Frost

I love Lulu Frost jewelry.  It's the perfect mix of modern, vintage and art deco but it doesn't come cheap.  The pieces below run from about $500 to over $1000.

So imagine my delight when my local J Crew in Copley Place had some lovely Lulu Frost baubles (see my purchase here). 

 

 

 

The J Crew pieces are a bit more simple, yes, but I think still lovely and for a small fraction of the price.  What say you, blog reader?
