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.

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?

Weekend Tidbits

Lulu Frost for J Crew necklace

I am obsessed with J Crew for fall and I can't walk by without popping in to see what's new.  This Lulu Frost for J Crew necklace caught my eye for its mix of modern and art deco.

Noir studded cuff

I bought this Noir studded cuff from Gilt and wore it last night to give a little edge to my lacy dress. 

Chanel graphite and Butter London Underground

In an ode to fall I got Chanel's graphite for yesterday's manicure and as a last hurrah to summer, my toes were painted with Butter's London Underground.

I ended the weekend on the right foot with a hard workout at the gym and a healthy dinner of salad and chicken breasts that I marinated in olive oil, garlic and lemon juice.

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!
