Love and Camo

Love is all you need.  And a good pair of shoes.  And a great bag.  And some great sunglasses.  And Camo (everything).

I love the gold detail on this t-shirt.  I styled it with my new favorite denim and my “neutral” orange driving shoes.

Bundled Up in Leopard

I can not wait for the temperatures to drop!  I am looking forward to rocking my faux fur leopard coat with everything from workout wear to evening wear.  I styled it with navy and my new favorite kicks.  My sweater is on sale and is so versatile.  I styled it here with a shirt under it.

Arking into to Fall

Welcome Fall!  I am easing into fall while the temperatures are still a bit warm with camo, bell sleeves and my favorite ark bag that was on repeat all Summer.  Not only do I love the look of this bag (which is back in stock, by the way), but it holds a lot and has proven to be very practical.  I may need to add this tortoise shell one and this shape (that packs flat) to my collection.

Hip to be Square

I’ve driven by this wall in Los Angeles so many times by myself and thought it would be fun for an outfit post.  This past weekend, my son and husband were taking me to the shopping event at J. Crew and they both pointed to it as we drive by and said “that would make a great shoot”.  So we stopped and did a quick shoot in my event outfit (which included my favorite new shoes).  I styled them with my latest denim obsession, New York sweatshirt and a gingham button-down.

Thank you to all who came to the event.  Stay tuned for an evening event in the next month or so.

Vintage Stripes

1984 called, they want your rugby back.   This new rugby from J. Crew is perfectly updated for 2017 with a nostalgic nod to 1984.  It is one of the new arrivals that I am loving (in fact, so much, that I got it in pink as well).  I styled it simple with my favorite new sneakers and white jeans.

Please join me and Amy ( of @howtojcrew fame) at J. Crew at The Grove in Los Angeles this Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm.  We will be on hand to style looks and take a look at the new arrivals.  We will have refreshments, a special discount and the first ten people to arrive and mention Amy or me will receive a $25 J. Crew gift card.  If you are not in the Los Angeles area look for a special giveaway on Instagram soon.

Baby Blue

I’m still easing into fall with baby blue.  As my favorite season, Summer, is coming to a close, I am enjoying transitional pieces.  I will miss the longer days.  In fact, I am already feeling rushed to walk my dog in the evening.  Evenings are now spent with homework and an earlier bedtime.  The relaxed summer evenings have ended.

Fall fashion is the one thing I look forward to in the fall.  J. Crew has just launched some amazing new arrivals.  Please join me and Amy Storck (of @howtojcrew fame) at The Grove in Los Angeles on Saturday from 11 am to 2 pm.  There will be refreshments and 20% off your purchase of $100 or more.  We will both be on hand to help with styling.  We hope to see you there!

Mani Monday – September 11th Edition

I will never forget.

I will never forget how lucky I was and am.

I will never forget the sounds of the plane and the sounds of the crash.

I will never forget the texture of the air.

I will never forget the horror.

I will never forget the kindness and compassion that I felt from fellow New Yorkers in the days and weeks after.

I will never forget.

This week’s mani honors the Twin Towers and September 11, 2001.  The colors are “Make the Cut” and “Surrounded by Studs” both by Essie Gel Couture.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

I wrote about my experience on September 11, 2001 in New York last year here.

 

Blue and White

My tried and true favorite color combination is blue and white.  It is evident in both my home decor and most of my wardrobe choices.  When I saw this clutch while on vacation in Hawaii, I knew I had to have it.  For me it’s a neutral (and it has this handy shoulder strap inside for when you tire of carrying it).  It gives a nice pop to my casual outfit of white jeans, blue tunic and my new favorite sandals.
