Currently Craving: Metallics
The evolution of metallics from just a pocket watch or a bauble around a woman’s neck to ready-to-wear pieces (Celine, Burberry, Matthew Williamson, DVF) is a truly beautiful thing. Lately I have been particularly drawn to metallic footwear, in all shapes and styles with a gold, silver, rose gold, copper or bronze glimmer. Here is a round-up of some of my favorites right now… enjoy!
1. Rebecca Minkoff 2. Dolce Vita (under $100!) 3. Jimmy Choo 4. Rebecca Minkoff 5. Tory Burch 6. Kate Spade 7. Cole Haan (love citrus laces!) 8. Coach 9. Rag & Bone 10. BCBG ($50!) 11. Michael Kors

Valentine’s Day: What to Wear

Valentine's Day: What to Wear
Whatever the occasion, here are a few V-Day inspired outfits you can wear this week. Personally, I like subtlety on holidays… You won’t find me wearing jeans dotted with a heart print or a pullover with cupid plastered on the front (do they even make this?), so here are some understated ways to incorporate the love this week…
Office: Try going bold with red trousers and a ridiculously-cool tee. Adding a structured blazer pulls the look together. Luxurious touches like a gold cap-toe pump, a rich leather bag, and a menswear-inspired watch keep it classic and elegant.
Ferragamo trousers, DVF blazer, Markus Lupfer tee, Kate Spade pumps (similar), Hermes watch, Madewall bag, and Kelly Wearstler studs
Dinner Date: If you and your someone are going out to eat, opt for a classic black/white dress with just a slight nod to the heart symbol. Add statement earrings and a pop of red with your bag to make the look extra special.
Victoria Beckham dress, Saint Laurent pumps, Prada clutch, Dannijo earrings, Kelly Wearstler ring
Valentine’s Day Brunch: Whether you are hitting a cool brunch spot with your girlfriends or grabbing a bite with your man, a pretty lace pencil skirt gets a cool modern update when paired with a chambray and brogues. Add heart-shaped touches like diamond earrings and a patent pouch to stay on theme.
L.K. Bennet skirt (similar), Madewell chambray, DSW brogues, Michael Kors watch, Coach studs, Mango pouch
Staying In: If you are cooking dinner or lounging for V-day (because you are poor like my man and me), then all you need is just a pop of pink to spice up your usual basics. Add a stack of gold bracelets and trendy loafers to pull this classic look together.
Marc by Marc Jacobs jeans, V-neck blouse, J.Crew loafers, Eberjey bra, Amrita Singh bangles

Currently Craving: Gloves

Gloves and mittens are a tricky accessory – I used to maintain the belief that they were merely a hindrance, a superfluous addition that served virtually the same purpose as pockets (which I am able to insert and remove my hand from with ease when I need to). On the other hand (har har), I feel I am missing a shopping, er fashion, opportunity… Well, that and how amazing are leather gloves for clapping at a hockey game? Thus, here is a round-up of some mittens and gloves that I am just dying to get my hands on in…

Currently Graving: Gloves
Clockwise from top (Tan Leather): Mulberry, Miu Miu, French Connection, Causse Gantier, Tory Burch, Rag & Bone, Cole Haan, Bruno Cucinelli, Vivienne Westwood, Lanvin, Burberry, Coach, and Asos (the Must-Have)
P.S. Hope you all had a great weekend!

Round Up: Best Merch to Save the Boobies

It would be remiss if I let October go by without posting about ta-tas. As an advocate of pink on the reg, (see blog title…), I can’t help but love all the pink support that comes out during Breast Cancer Awareness month. What can be better than shopping AND helping other people?? Here are some of my favorite products you can purchase this month that will support the fight again breast cancer:

Breast Cancer Awareness

Clockwise from Top Left: Donna Karan Cashmere Eau de Parfum, Keep Calm and Fight On, Essie BCA Collection Polish, COACH leather bag, Movado Special Edition BCA watch, Giuliana Rancic for LOFT necklace, ECHO scarf, and Dannijo BCA bracelet

If you have any favorite pink products or stories, please share them in the comments!

No Fuss, No Frills

Dress: Cynthia Rowley (similar), Shoes: COACH (old, similar), Bag: Rebecca Minkoff (also love this one), Watch: Michael Kors, Bangle: old, totally coveting this one, Ring: Allison Moses

I wore this easy, black midi-dress this weekend for brunch and some errands… I love a dress like this for summer, because you can change it up in so many ways. This time I styled it with a touch of tribal. For Fall, I can layer with a sweater and some brogues! Hope you all had a wonderful, long weekend!

The Very Unfortunate Real World

Goodbye college, hello real world. Most graduates are looking forward to the day when they take another step on the path of life. They look to it with hope and a sense of adventure. I, on the other hand, left kicking and screaming yesterday afternoon from the University I have called home for the past four years. Anyway, I will be back on track soon but in the meantime here are some highlights from the past week that I spent hurrahing with my friends and family!

Snapped these pictures in between classes the other day. We had a string of days with gorgeous weather here, so I could finally break out some spring dresses. This is one of my favorite maxi dresses. It has a cute retro feel to it, and when I wear it I feel like I want to walk along the seashore… Those two things aren’t directly related, but they’re both true…
