Lilac Nails A Summer Must!

25 May

I’m so in love with lilac nails lately!  The pale purple shades looks great on all skin tones and is so feminine. Lilac is a nice way to incorporate some purple into your wardrobe without going into dark grape territory. Ranging from pale pinkish hues to deeper greyish hues, there is a lilac for everyone. What lilac shade works for you?

I came across these cute Kate Spade stud earrings and had to share them with you all, they’re a very similar, smaller version of  her gumdrop studs that were a huge hit last year.  They are a great way to add some color to your look. If color is not your thing- this is the perfect “gateway” pair of earrings for you.

Lovely Lavender Bags!

10 Apr

Earlier this year I announced my “colors of the year”- Emerald and Lavender were the frontrunners and I still feel the same way.  I have been pretty obsessed with purple anything lately but am partial to the light & feminine lavender hue in particular…the pretty pastel screams Spring and is so adorable!  There is no better way to incorporate new colors into your wardrobe  than with a gorgeous new bag!   Lavender pairs especially well with camel, navy, white and other pastels and is quite versatile for a candy color. Love color? wear your lavender bag with a floral dress or pant for the ultimate Spring look.

The Two Must Have Colors For 2013!!!

22 Jan

What are the “it” colors for 2013?????  I can’t choose just one!  The two colors that I won’t be able to live without are Emerald and Lilac!!!! So many of my favorite fashion moments have included at least one of these colors , if not both!  Emerald has always been a go to color  in my wardrobe but I’m really making room for lilac this year and am very excited about it.  If you’re not big into color you can start by adding a shoe or clutch to your outfit or adding these colors into your makeup regimen. If you love color, go crazy with it-  The more the merrier!

Some colorful inspiration…..

Floral Jeans

8 Jul

As the proud new owner of floral jeans I wanted to do a post that would inspire you to get a pair as well.  I did have floral jeans as a kid but this is my first pair in my adulthood.  Floral is so fun and they come in many color combos from grey to brights to colorful pastels, it’s up to you.  I purchased a grey Current/Elliott pair(#4 below), yes I was bold enough for the print but not bold enough for color…..baby steps!  I wore mine with a white v neck and pink sandals and plan to wear them into Fall with bold blues and blacks.  As far as shoes, they look great with sandals, flats, wedges and heels! When wearing floral jeans, my only advice is to pair them with solid pieces so that the jeans are on a stage of their own.  Below are some ideas on how to wear them and also some pairs to shop. Enjoy!

Floral jeans for you to shop!

1.Black & white J brand ($200) available at Nordstrom. 2. Blue & white($135) available at Madewell. 3. Cream Citezens of humanity ($189) available at Neiman marcus.
