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

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.
