Bangs

Outfit details: Talbots top (similar here), J Crew jacket (similar here or here), Zara skirt (similar here or here), Stuart Weitzman shoes (get them here), Miu Miu bag, Hermes scarf and bangle, Chanel pin, J Crew necklace, Moschino belt

I've had blunt bangs and an overall blunt cut for a few years now but my last cut I made a wee change (see my pinterest board on hairstyles).  I added in some long layers and am growing my bangs a bit to get them more sideswept.  But the last few days, it's just not coming out how I want it to.  Also, I painted my nails this weekend in a bright pink as I'm already anticipating spring.

Snowy Day

Outfit details: Club Monaco sweater dress (very old, similar here), J Crew pixie pants, Chanel rainboots, Miu Miu bag, Hermes scarf, Zara belt (similar here), Chanel necklace

Saturday was our first real snow this winter and in true Boston style, even though it was only a few inches, the sidewalks were a mess.  It's rare that I wear any sort of practical shoes, but if one must be practical, then why not do it in Chanel?

Cozy with pink and orange

Outfit details: Stylemint tshirt, BCBG sweater (very old), J Brand jeans, Saks boots, J Crew necklace, Hermes belt, Stella McCartney bag

Even on a dreary day last week, I punched it up with an orange and pink striped T shirt from stylemint.  Then as I put together my wishlist of handbags (here), they too were pink and orange.  And finally, this weekend  created a spring wishlist on pinterest that ended up being mostly pink and orange.

Craving Brights - Pink & Orange

Even though it's been a mild winter so far, it's at this point that I really start to crave something shiny, new and bright and I think a new bag may be in order.

Balenciaga arena city bag

I love my off white Balenciaga bag and when I bought it, I initially thought I wanted a bright color but didn't find a color in the style I liked.  Perhaps a bright pink one is in order.

Marc by Marc Jacobs color blocked satchel

In or out, I'm always a fan of colorblocking and orange and pink together in this Marc by Marc Jacobs satchel is just fabulous.

Givenchy nightingale

Last year the Givenchy nightingale was also on my wishlist but again, I never did find exact style I wanted.  The zipper detail on the strap is right up my alley and I cannot resist the bright orange.

Proenza Schouler PS1

Finally, the Proenza Schouler PS1 in orchid is the perfect example of color saturation at its best.  Love love love.

Which do you like best?

Boucle'

Outfit details: Elene Cassis dress (similar here), J. Crew cardigan, Stuart Weitzman boots, Stella McCartney bag, Chanel necklace, Hermes bangle, Louis Vuitton ring

Oh how I love boucle' and anything Chanel inspired.  I bought this Elene Cassis dress a couple of months ago on sale at Neiman Marcus and it's just my style.  It's the perfect mix of professional for work but still fun enough to wear out in the evening.
