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!


Black and Tan

Banana Republic shirt, Ann Taylor Skirt, Balenciaga bag, Chanel ring, Hermes bangle

We are still at the height of the dog days of summer, yet I find myself leaning towards more neutral colors and clean lines and less of the in your face brights and prints that I usually favor.

Miu Miu shoes, Kate Spade jacket

Yesterday I wore this black and tan Ann Taylor colorblocked skirt.  I love how the black on either side slims me down a bit and it's perfect with my fave Miu Miu sandals purchased on deep discount from Liberty's of London.  I love these shoes and need to get as much wear out of them as I can before fall is really upon us!

Happy Friday everyone!


Oh yes I did...

I'm sure you've seen how much I LOOOVVE my Valentino studded t-strap kitten heels, right?  Who would have thought when I bought them how much I would wear them, love them?  So you can imagine when I saw the flat version that I just MIGHT HAVE SWOONED.  But I resisted, oh yes I did...until I happened upon some very important and relevant information on my daily blog reads.  I check in each day with the Chloe Conspiracy.  She is darling and has such a great sense of style, plus she posts regularly on all the sales going on across the interwebs.  But you know me, I'm not a very good bargain shopper.  I just don't always have the patience.  I get gobs of emails trying to entice me with daily deals, bargains galore, free shipping.  But it's a bit of information overload for me.  Yet today for some reason, I paid attention to Chloe's "see Chloe shop" post which was chock full o' bargains.  And there it was, Bergdorfs has a deal until August 19.  Check it out here (but I'll give you a hint, I'm getting $200 back!).  Happy shopping!!
