think pink

13th November 2012

between being pretty in pale pink or fabulous in fun fuschia, there are so many ways to think pink && we are thinking neon, neon, neon!

pink is not just for wednesday’s anymore (sorry mean girls reference), anyway can be an opportunity to think pink, especially in trendy neon! with these bright cigarette pants && a slouchy matching sweater, i was able to make a fall worthy neon look that is bold, bright && beautiful while keeping it comfy && casual.
my matching bubble necklace helped complete this monochromatic look, while the bright blue shoes && spotted bag helped compliment my hot hues!

Trendy Kate

9th May 2012

today lets take a look at what’s trending at kate spade new york!
Today, I am breaking down some trends and showing you the easiest way to get the look all while featuring new arrivals at ksny (yay)! plus we will take a look inside my closet at my newest ks wardrobe additions.

first lets look at three spring and summer trends that are here to stay! They will even carry over to fall 2012.
Hot Colors:
as I mentioned in my previous post (lets get tomato soup delivered) tomato red is a hot right now, africa violet is also a unique and fun color for summer. Wear these colors together, or choose one for a head to toe monochromatic look or to use as the perfect color pop! 
Get the Look at KSNY: eyelet Selita dress (eyelets are another spring trend) $578, Arielle tee $178, Linen Viola Dress $358
Prints:
Leopard print is always on trend, but the way you wear it changes. This years its all about pairing it with bright colors (like tomato red), wearing structured leopard pieces (like peplum tops) or giving it a flirty-girlie vibe (by piling on the pearls, or wearing a girlie dress). geometric and floral prints are also in, the blouse shown above kills both of these trends with one top.
Get the Look at KSNY: leopard Randie peplum top $268, abstract arielle tee $198
Color Blocked:
Colorblocking, thick and thin is a huge trend this year! Pick up the perfect blocked piece or do it yourself by pairing a solid top with another solid colored skirt. You can block with neutrals, colors or even neon!
Get the Look at KSNY: Striped kerrigan dress $498, color block tank $178, tricolor zahara dress $498
More great new products at Kate Spade include pretty pillows:
and of course, handbags
These bags are brilliantly basic. The bright colors and classic shapes can make the perfect basic bag for any fabulous fashionista. featured collections: A La Vita, Primrose Hill and Gold Coast
WWCD: What Would Courtney Do.
With all these amazing options, how could you expect a girl to just pick one? You can’t… and I didn’t! heres a peak at my new product purchase and the trends they apply to!
I don’t own any zebra (ghasp) so I made up for lost purchases with a perfect peplum randie top (animal & peplum, two trends in one) & a linen jillian bow dress. I also picked up this classy color blocked Celine dress as a fun trendy take on neutrals. Perfect cigarette pants are hard to find (especially with my body type) so when I found these perfect lipstick mandy pants in tomato red (also african violet and black) I had to pick them up!
What Would You Do?
I showed you mine, time to show me (or tell me) yours! Do you like my picks? if not, what products would you pick up? Or what trends are you dying to try?
Let me know, Cheers!
