Rose is my Forte

My mood is, without a doubt, seasonally dependent.   This winter has been particularly brutal, in the Northeast, it’s safe to say we are all ready for the up tick of temps.  Regardless of the weather, I am headed to the vineyards on Long Island for a girl’s weekend to celebrate a very dear friend’s 40th birthday.  Let the outfit planning commence!!

Vision:

Reality:

I bought two tops from Revolve, one of my favorite online shopping destinations.  The Endless Rose top I would wear with 501s either white or light wash.  The second option is the Athena top by Likely, I think it would pair well with jeans too, but wouldn’t it be so pretty with this gorgeous yellow Ulla Johnson skirt or even this one which is on sale, always a bonus!   I am definitely planning to wear block heel sandals, I love these!  Finally, this season’s it bag the rattan version, will work with either outfit, I am loving this one from urban outfitters at $34 you can’t really beat it.  I’ll likely have to wear some sort of warm (outfit busting) outerwear, for now I am hanging on to the hope that we’ll get gorgeous balmy temps!

Can’t wait for the Rose to flow!

Sidebar:

While we are on the topic of rattan, I love this stool so much, it reminds me of something my grandma Alice would have had on her sun porch.

We finally received the pendant lighting for our updated kitchen / family room, I can NOT wait for them to be installed.

Thats all

xoxo

Birthday Valentines Day Wishlist

2dbff978cf8165748cbe2c1c37294e73
Every year right around February 1st my love of pink kicks into high gear.  it feels brain has been coded with an algorithm automatically skewing me toward the hue on precisely the same date every year.  Or the simpler explanation is that I tend to ride the waves of seasonal fashion and February is the month where spring pieces start arriving in store and online.
I love the Tom Ford Sean pink and gold aviators, for a more reasonable version Ray-bans are a tried and true fave!
This oversized, rose colored sweater from Asos is the prettiest color pink.
My new favorite brand, Aviator Nation made these sweats in a reddish pink…I am obsessed!
I consider myself pretty easy to buy for, a lovely floral scent will always do the trick.  Currently, I am coveting Gucci’s new scent Bloom and Philosophy’s Loveswept is also so delish as well.
I have yet to buy one single item from Charlotte Tidbury’s line, I have to admit though, every instagram post / ad has me drooling.  One of these days I am going to give in and by the whole line!   I think the first thing I’d scoop up would be the Charlotte’s Magic Cream Treat and Transform Moisturizer, bloggers rave about it, Rachel Parcell raved about it in this post.   Others on my list are the Hollywood Beauty Light wand and the Light Wonder Youth Boosting Foundation, pretty much everything looks like it might make me look exactly like Gisele, so I am all in!!
How cute are these pink velvet booties…yes please!

Uniform

Winters in the Northeast are excessively long, unfortunately for me it is not my favorite season.  I am not the girl who relishes sweater, jeans and boot season, somehow every year I get through it, begrudgingly.  My uniform this year consists of these over the knee boots, for a higher end version Stuart Weitzman’s are a fashion blogger favorite!  Whether they are in or out skinny jeans are still my jam, I pair a black or neutral colored cashmere sweater with coordinating outwear, a Gucci belt and gold accessories, voila, there you have it…my winter uniform:)

Whistler Christmas

We were invited to join my college roommate and her amazing family for Christmas in Whistler, British Columbia this year.  It was a pipe dream for us, but it didn’t stop me from fantasizing about my Whistler wardrobe.  Below is my vision board, I pictured cozy fur vests in grey or navy over cozy cashmere turtlenecks.   There are so many fun apre ski sweaters, I am obsessed with Chinti and Parker’s cashmere line, this apre ski sweater is so cute and for a much cheaper apre look Talbots has this winner.

Floral Embroidery

I wasn’t immediately a huge fan of the influx of embroidery onto fashion last winter. During the spring and summer celebs were loving the prohibitively expensive Gucci iterations of the trend.  Gucci seemed to make the first major move on the trend and now droves of more budget friendly brands are jumping on the wagon.  Moving into fall, I can actually say I’m loving cozier versions of the trend. Embroidered sweatshirts and joggers are comfortable and super cute!   Embroidery is making denim more playful and fun, I can even get behind some of the footwear I’ve seen out there.

Sporty Saturdays

Yes ma’am this is definitely my jam.  I am sure there are lots of people who can not stand the “athleisure” movement, I on the other hand am all in.  Bring it, track pants, joggers, hoodies, sneaks, yes, yes, yes and yes.
