Despite being in the height of summer, a few things this weekend geared me up for fall.
I spent the long weekend in Florida which always requires a stop into Nordstom's at the Gardens Mall. During my walk through the makeup area I was smacked in the face with this iridescent green gold Chanel nail polish called Peridot. And since I was there I also picked up Chanel's sparkly graphite polish.
I then took a quick lap around Saks to check out some of the sale items. Honestly, I'm not the best sale shopper. I never seem to have the patience to comb through the sale racks but on this trip, this St. John jacket practically jumped out at me.
How could I pass up the tulle covered pearl embellished details for a deep discount?
In an ode to Independence Day, I dressed to the beat of my own drummer. Instead of the expected red, white and blue, I opted for pink, white and green. Go figure.
I pulled this pink and green Sara Campbell embroidered skirt from my closet that hasn't been worn in a year or so. I paired it with an Ann Taylor floaty white top (from year's ago) that was perfect for this hot summer's day and gave it an extra punch with a fluorescent pink Cambridge Satchel bag.
I hope you all had a great weekend!
Do you ever find something in your closet that you had totally forgotten about but you just love? That's what happened to me when I got dressed on this morning. I got the ruffly RED Valentino skirt last summer and it was one of my very favorite things to wear and here it is now in it's first appearance this summer.
Plus I got this eyelet Lavia top at Saks on sale last summer and it too made regular appearances in my summer wardrobe. So when I pulled these two things out this morning, I was doubly happy. And can I just say how much I adore these sandals? They remind me of the woven Pradas that I've seen but for a much smaller pricetag. Add that to the fact that there was a mini emergency in my office today which required me to trot down 30 flights of stairs in these babies and they are one of my more comfortable pairs of heels.
Most days I dream at night about the getup for the next day but for some reason I went to bed the night before with this in mind. I made a few minor modifications but I had envisioned the floaty black and white DVF top with a dotted Sara Campbell skirt from my closet's archives.
I gave thought to wearing a nude shoe (I mean, I have so many!) or maybe a bright red but opted instead for these J Crew suede sandals which not only look great but are super comfy.
I accessorized with an Elisha Daniels multi chain necklace, Hermes bracelet, LV ring and Ann Taylor belt.
