Rosé my Forté

My mood is, without a doubt, seasonally influenced.   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 (she was an early style-influencer for me) 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

Life through Rose Colored Glasses

If only life was as pretty as it is when seen through rose colored glasses.  If you adore pink as much as I do, you’d agree that it can be used in almost any element of style for a beautiful aesthetic. With Spring’s recent “debut” we are seeing pink on the racks, at beauty counters, in the pages of magazines and all over pinterest and instagram.  Rose pink is not just a pretty color, the natural elements of rose hips and rose seed oil contain a power amount of vitamin C, that have proven to make incredibly effective beauty products. At the moment, my go to day cream is Laura Mercier’s Infusion de Rose Nourishing Crème .  Rose gold has also become a very popular metal for accessories, for hardware on handbags and clothing. Currently, these are some of my favorite rose inspired products and images.
