“Mommy I don’t need a cherry on top of my sundae. It’s sweet enough.” says my son as we order his dessert. I sigh with relief, I am not crazy about the dye in the cherries.
“I prefer cherries on the pit, anyway.” he continues. Another sigh of relief. Most days I feel like he barely gets enough vegetables and has a few too many snacks of questionable nutritional value, but when he makes a choice like this on his own, I feel like we are doing OK.
The last thing I want to do is make some things more desirable my making then “off limits”. Today I will celebrate my cherry victory.

Mommy, they are actually not green!” says my son as I arrive at his class presentation. “Well I still thought a frog would be cute.” I reply. “They are orange, but it is cute.” he says with a smile.
This week my son gave a presentation on the poison dart frog. Did you know that a poison dart frog does not sleep? Instead it sits very still and rests. This amphibian is typically bright orange, but some are green.
My first polo shirt in high school was pink with green stripes. It remains one of my favorite color combinations. I love both colors in prints too, especially Lilly Pulitzer prints like in this top ,these shorts and this dress. This week’s color combination has had me missing all my old Lilly clothes. I did manage to keep one pair of shoes (pictured above) with blue butterflies that were a favorite in my New York days. I also kept a dress and a few other pieces that I will wear this summer.

I almost never wear black. I lived in San Francisco for nine years after college and wore it quite a bit. When I moved to New York I was determined not to be an all black cliche, so I embraced color. This tuxedo inspired long sleeve t-shirt comes in navy as well, but I decided to go with a non-basic (for me) and go for the black. I styled it with my lace pants, glitter heels, blue velvet clutch, Ryan Sunglasses and an Hermes scarf for my son’s school holiday program.
