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.

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.

Red Carpet Muses

So far, this awards season’s red carpet looks have not disappointed.   From the stunning, simple and sophisticated Lupita Nyong to the gorgeously glowing Olivia Wilde the celebrities (stylists) have been nailing it.  There are so many drool worth looks it is hard to choose our favorites. Instead, we’ve decided to choose four and find their interior design counter parts.  Here are the looks we’ve selected for this game:

Starting with Lupita in the gorgeous Ralph Lauren coral / red at the Golden Globes, we almost don’t have words!  The color popped off her velvet skin tone, this girl is everything we love about the red carpet and more.  Reminiscent of the Tom Ford white cape ensemble Gwyneth wore to the 2012 Oscars, the silhouette itself is perfection.  The Ralph Lauren color is mesmerizing in photographs we can only imagine how amazing it was in person.  Somewhere between a perfectly red red and a bright coral red we swoon just imagining a room this color…

Next, we have Olivia Wilde in an Emerald Sequined Gucci, it can be argued that there has not been a better more glamorous maternity look on the red carpet.  She is positively glowing and the gown fits impeccably.  The color emerald was particularly popular this past year as it was named the Pantone color of the year.  The use of emerald in interior design is fabulous as well, the jewel tone has such a rich texture that just a touch adds depth to a room.

Maria Menounos is radiant in a fabulous pink Max Azria Atelier gown.   Maria is beautiful, her California bronzed skin is perfect against the hot pink dress.  Pink is tough to carry into interior design unless you are decorating a little girl’s room or a feminine home.  We love the images below, each displays beautiful use of this powerful pink hue…

Lupita at the SAG Awards in turquoise Gucci, she nails it yet again. We are loving this bright turquoise, perhaps because, to us, it represents warmer days that seem so far away. Admittedly, the blog “House of Turquoise” never fails to get us salivating at the use of turquoise in interior design. We’ve found some images that represent this color in well styled décor.
