Summer Statements

3rd June 2014

It’s official summer – but I’m not yet wardrobe ready, uh-oh!
So today we’re talking summer statements and showcasing a few ways to make a big splash with your seasonal style!
A Statement Shade
Summer is a fun, and playful season where anything goes! Now’s the time to test out those giant cat-eye frames – they’ll protect you from the sun while serving as the perfect accessory to spruce up a simple white dress! I double dog dare you to pick a statement shade in a powerful color for two-times the impact! If you’re up for the challenge, just remember to tone down the rest of the look by wearing neutrals and simple silhouettes so you don’t over do it!
Featuring:
Or you can create your own custom Diamond wedding ring via Anjolee, swoon!
A Statement Skirt
Just like Spring, Midi Skirts are a Summer must! They look fab, work for day or night and help keep you cool in the summer heat. And since flamingos are having a major moment this season (what took us so long), I don’t see any reason not to show off your stems in a flamingo printed skirt.
Shop the Look:
A Statement Print
Big, bold prints work great for summer. Invest in a strikingly printed maxi dress to pair with neutral sandals and matching bag. The end result will be effortlessly chic but still fashion forward and help you make a big summer statement!

A Statement Color
I have never felt the laziness of summer until I moved to NYC. Somedays, it’s just too dang hot. I’m from Arizona, so I know heat – but the shorting New York humidity is a whole different animal that drives me bananas! Somedays I just want to throw on a simple skirt or dress and call it a day – that’s when a statement color can really come in handy. Instead of reaching for black or white on those too-hot-to-care days, pull on a pink wrap dress, bright blue maxi or orange skirt! These brights will help make a cool summer statement and help hide the fact that you’re trying not to melt into a colorful puddle.

Well Written

26th May 2014

Hi all! I’m really excited to announce a new aspect that I will be adding to my blog from here on out – video (or vlogging, if you will). I have wanted to step into adding video elements to the blog for a while now and finally have the equipment and help to do so. So stay tuned for colorful videos coming soon to a blog near you!
So I am a wee-bit nerdy and am certainly very type A. As a result, I’m obsessed with making (and sticking to) elaborate and detailed to do lists, and my planner – yes, I still keep a handwritten planner, is a work of art. As a result colorful, quality pens are very important to me! My mom and I have even been in a 5 year war over the “perfect pen” – its a random ball point pen that one of us probably stole from a doctors office (oops!). It writes so well that we continue to steal from each other whenever we have the chance, sneaky sneaky. Anyways, the 5 year fight finally came to an end when I let her take home the winning writer when she came to visit a few weeks bag. Why you may ask, because I received the cutest personalize package from Pilot Pen equipped with the most amazing pens to help me write in style!
Pilot pens new line of “fashion pens” inspired me to share some of my current cravings and favorite products right now:
I’m so into colored shades at the moment, and these cool blue ray bans are to die for, plus I’m lusting for the Parisian inspired powder blue pillow from C.wonder – it would look great in my pink and blue bedroom that I can’t wait to share with you! I’m loving this sweet and citrus inspired green hue, especially in skorts (my spring/summer go-to) and limey Nikes! I’ve been wearing converse and sneakers on replay, it’s fun to switch things up with full dresses and girlie touches like pink hues or Marc Jacobs Daisy perfume. Back in the day I was all about orange, and this top shop skirt has me reverting back to my old ways – it’s gorgeous!!! and who doesn’t love a midi! OH and can we talk about this pineapple bag… Swoon! Oh Charlotte Olympia – you can do no wrong.
