Much like my affinity for leopard prints, I love tortoise shell for it’s neutral capabilities — it goes with everything. I’ve been eyeing a whole bunch of tortoise shell accessories lately to update my fall wardrobe — they go perfectly with classic black dresses to wear to work, and look great with casual grey sweaters and tees for the weekends. At the top of my list is that Tuckernuck clutch, I can just envision it at lots of holiday parties this year! And that sweet little bow hair clip is from J.Crew’s Crewcuts — perfect for jazzing up a preppy ponytail, don’t you think?
Sure, it’s only halfway through August, but we all know the lust for Fall fashion comes long before the beach towels and sandals get packed up. I always flip through the September issues and find a crazy trend I want to try for upcoming cool weather — but this year my wish list is filled to the brim with practical basics that have just a subtle twist. Take the classic black tote and add a scalloped edge, or simple white tailored shirt, and bedazzle the collar with gemstones. The best part? They’re worth the investment because of their timeless looks (or at least that’s how I’ll justify the purchases). Are you already craving some items for Fall or are you hanging on to your breezy sundresses until the first freeze?
Finding the perfect dress for my impending bridal shower is proving to be a more difficult task than finding a wedding dress! While I almost accidentally stumbled upon my dream wedding dress, I’ve been on the hunt for weeks trying to find the perfect spring-time party dress to wear to the shower. I think I tried on almost 30 dresses in a post-work shopping session on Monday night and went home empty-handed, so my next step is to some online options from this suite of coral pink dresses I ordered online. I need all the help I can get: which one gets your vote?
My mailman hates me, for sure, because I’ve ordered about a dozen dresses that have all been tried on and returned — my hunt has been a disappointment. I’ve been thinking perhaps I just need to scratch my idea of the perfect holiday dress altogether and try something new this year.Enter some pretty festive pants I’ve been eyeing — maybe a sharp pair of cropped party pants is just what I need to get me through the holiday season? Would you wear patterned pants in lieu of a holiday dress?
We’ve got one last color-themed holiday gift guide this week, and I had to save the best for last: pink! I wouldn’t mind wheeling around on that hot pink cruiser or donning those striped bow gloves! And is there any better gift for a blogger than a hot pink external iPhone battery? I think not!
This holiday gift guide is all about little luxuries in a crisp winter white. Don’t you just want to cozy up in that chunky anchor scarf and light one of those lovely diptyque candles?
Up next in the holiday gift guide color wheel is green — these gift may be my personal favorites since a bright kelly green is one of the main colors for our upcoming spring wedding! What’s your favorite green gift?
There’s is an inexplicable force that makes me crave cozy pajamas and slippers and a day in my bed like crazy when that first snowfall hits… doesn’t that sound fabulous right about now? Maybe ordering new pink gingham flannel PJs will help hold me over until I can hibernate this weekend!
The benefit of this crazy storm? A cozy night in with my Pinterest boards. I was pinning away last night all things glitzy and gold; including that little pave bubble bracelet came home with me from my NYC trip this weekend! What did you do to distract yourself from the storm?
