There is something about a stark white bikini on tanned, olive, caramel or any number of the gorg brown shades that many rock that makes you want to run to your nearest oasis! When you have an all white look in the summer, that's when I definitely get excited to wear gold. I don't wear this tone a lot but we all have our bling out moments and this is such a case. Vitamin A is one of my favorite brands as they always have such a fun suit that's perfect for your global beach destination. Of course, I'm charmed with Alex and Ani and this bunch of bracelets will not go unnoticed on your arm. Finally, show everyone that you rock, own and have stock in your divalicious card by rocking these sky high gold Donna Karan shoes and with the subtle bling by Cathy Waterman available at my fave boutique, Ylang 23!

I've got the Beauty Blues. Not the sad ones - the tranquil ones. Before I enjoy the hectic fun of St Patty's green, I'm relaxing post SXSW by doing a million conference calls and taking some personal time. I love the fact that EOS has just released their hand lotion (if you love their lip balm this is going to be a huge treat) which has all the calming effects that you can look for with oat, aloe, shea butter and Vitamin A and E. Continuing with the theme of rejuvenation after a long day of traveling H2O Sea Pure's Gentle Refining Polish has sea moss, fine grated bamboo extract and more to keep my skin glowing after all the parties and lights that I have been through. Continuing on with a nice bubble bath with Big Blue Bomb at Lush which has nice fizzies when you're getting ready for a fun night/weekend. Of course wrapping it up with a Gel Eye Mask in Blue of course - only when it has been in the freezer for a bit.
It's almost official. Next weekend pretty much closes the door on summer and although we have transitioned into fall for the most part on this site, we realize that we can still squeeze out some more summer looks on a case by case basis! This weekend I have been soaking up some much needed sun as most of my summer has been spent traveling. I am obsessed with Vitamin A which has amazing swimsuits (how cute is the model in their campaign) and of course in typical style around Kitten Lounge, it's all about the accessories which can be worn with a number of other looks.
I am not a Prada girl when it comes to their handbags, but I love the shoes and these platform wedges are super cute and have that great aged look. I also love the ombre bag by Yves Saint Laurent which can be worn well into the fall. This is so luxe (imagine it with a fab pair of skinny jeans, booties and large sunglasses) and can fit a number of my items that I bring with me - this screams jetset. I am obsessed with the Tiffany & Co Keys - I love large keys and it makes a fab statement when you're out and about wearing it. I feel that every season, I always feel a little bittersweet at the end of the summer - the days of hanging out on rooftops with perfect weather get less and less, the madness of Fashion Week is only days away, my birthday is on the 12th of next month and yet I'm always excited to begin a number of projects that are focused on the fall and the summer. Because of that, I always get a signature accessory at the end of the summer which bridges into my fall wardrobe. It's a way of keeping a bit of an amazing time with me while I go forward! The key is just a sentimental and huge symbol for me that this is one that I would love to have to remind me of the significance of summer 2010 (all the press trips, becoming a Crest Spokesmodel/Ambassador and so many items that I will begin to share as we roll out over the next few weeks)!
The reality is that as long as the weather feels amazing and we can continue to wear flip flops then the summer continues on if only in our minds! Follow the #KL31BdayStar picks for our essentials for fall and what's on my birthday list!
