Pink Pineapple

After coveting this bag  (also here) and waiting for it to arrive, it did not disappoint.  I have been wearing it nonstop with everything and it holds everything.  I styled it with this fun pineapple blazer from J. Crew, white denim, pink sunglasses and gold espadrilles.

Mani Monday – Camellia Edition

It is hard to think about a camellia and not also think about Coco Chanel.  My son and I have been reading this book about the life of Coco Chanel at bedtime, so I have had Chanel on the brain.  The polish is subtle matte pink and I love the little touch of camellia.  I think Coco would approve…

The color is “Pink Rubber” by Chanel. It is a matte finish.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Bohemian Prep

A love a good mix of classic preppy with a softer bohemian edge.  My new favorite Legend of Lido clutch has the perfect pop of pink with my pink gingham shirt.  I styled them with my new Vintage Crop jeans (I can not stop wearing them) and my hot pink driving shoes that I picked up in Antwerp in 2005 (that story here).

Pink Lady

My love of liberty prints is well documented.  When I saw this lady jacket from J. Crew with Liberty print trim, I had to have it. I styled it with a striped ruffled shirt, signet bag (with pom-pom), white jeans and denim pom-pom flats.

You can see more of my Liberty print looks in these posts starting with my collection and introduction to them in London: May Liberty Flowers, Santa Barbara Mother’s Day, Liberty and Lavender, Denim on Denim, East River Sailing Club, Fiddlehead Farm, Stripes and Liberty, Paisley Liberty,and  Pink Liberty.

Holy Matcha!

I was in San Diego last weekend and I had to check out the newest matcha bar, Holy Matcha, that just opened in North Park.  They have the most beautiful rose photo wall and decor.  The menu is perfectly curated with a just few items and everything is gluten-free and vegan. 

Since I knew the decor was going to be amazing and there would be plenty of photo opportunties, I kept my look simple with a pop of pink.  I am wearing a bell-sleeved silk blouse, Signet bag in fuchsia bloom, lookout high-rise jeans and leopard Gemma flats, all from J. Crew.

Tickled Pink

I am tickled pink about several of the new arrivals from J. Crew.  I went for this black and white geometric top, but had to add three shades of pink and my favorite new pink lip color by Chanel.  I don’t tend to wear lipstick.  I can still hear my mom saying ” You need lipstick” as I was leaving the house in High School.  I guess it is still a way of rebelling.  The truth is, it just doesn’t stay on and gets on my water bottle.

At a gift exchange over the holidays, a Chanel Rouge Double Intensite Ultra Wear Lip Color was the hot gift that kept being stolen.  I mentioned it to friend and she got me one for Christmas.  You apply the lip stain, wait a few minutes and then add a gloss.  It stays on all day without being drying.  I am wearing Darling Pink.

Dreaming of Paris

As my son and I research our trip to London in 2017, I am scheming how we can get to Paris for a few days, too.  As Audrey Hepburn said, “Paris is always a good idea.”

Like Audrey, I also believe in pink.  I styled my  pink Velvet Blazer, with my Paris T-shirt, pink Jane sunglasses, glitter heels and a pink (monogrammed) wallet all from J. Crew.   I added a pink Hermes scarf in keeping with the Paris theme and AG Jeans.

Mani Monday – Doughnut Edition

This year for our family Halloween costume we are going as doughnuts.  My son and I saw the costumes over a month ago and were both very excited.  I am so happy that he is still into the idea of a family costume.

The color is “Gotcha” by CND Vinylux.  The nail art and manicure are by Olive & June.

Happy Halloween!

Boo!

Raspberry and pumpkins are an unlikely combination, but I love pink and orange together.  I wore my favorite new raspberry coat from J. Crew to a mini pumpkin patch where we picked up a few pumpkins the other day.  How cute is the window at Hudson Grace?  We are excited for Halloween and my son is still into the family costume idea.
