I Love Ruffles!

Lavia eyelet top, RED Valentino skirt, Michael Michael Kors cardi

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.

J Crew necklace, Hermes bangle, Stuart Weitzman sandals

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.


Black & White/Stripes & Dots

DVF top, Sara Campbell skirt, Tiziana handbag

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.

Elisha Daniels necklace, J Crew sandals

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.

Hermes bangle, LV ring, Ann Taylor belt

I accessorized with an Elisha Daniels multi chain necklace, Hermes bracelet, LV ring and Ann Taylor belt.

Miu Miu How Do I Love Thee?

Let me count the ways...

One, perhaps I need a dramatic stairway on which to have my shoes strewn all over the place.

Two, oh the pink and the glitter, love, love.

Three, the feminine print of the dress, the curve of the heel...

Four, this bag is calling my name.


Miu Miu, your fall 2011 campaign is fab!

Weekend Wanderings (and a bit of nostalgia)

Zara top and blazer, J Brand jeans, Loeffler Randall sandals

Sunday was a relatively lazy day other than my walk to Whole Foods.  My sister got herself this Zara shirt and jacket and was kind enough to get them for me as well.  These were the perfect Sunday afternoon items paired with my J Brand cropped flares.  I'm loving all these bright florals!

Chanel necklace and ring, Cambrige Satchel bag, Longchamp leather bracelet

My jaunt over to Whole Foods had me wandering through the neighborhood that I lived in when I first moved to Boston 15 years ago.  It made me really look at my lovely town through a new set of eyes and see the beauty that I take for granted each day. 

 I wandered by the Mother Church of the Christian Scientists which is such a beautiful campus of buildings.

After wandering through the Christian Science Plaza, I made my way home through the Southwest Corridor where there are dog parks, little community gardens and lots of these gorgeous hydrangea.


And to top off my lovely day, I bought myself these gorgeous bright, bright flowers.
