I love Fridays as many times I'm working within the neighborhood, wrapping up from the week and just buttoning things down. As we're in the transitional weather, I have a thing for rocking spring/summer and fall looks together. I obsess over wearing a simple button down shirt just like this one from Helmut Lang and paired with these fabulous Vanessa Bruno shorts. I'm obsessed with my new Gypsyz which are made from Gypsy 05 - love that these come up above the knee and are cable knit boots. I love rocking them around the house and around the corner! Layer this fabulous feather diamond necklace from Irit Design with a bracelet (fabulously jade) from Wendy Yue. Of course this green amethyst Lagos ring is the perfect way to make the outfit come together. Those who know me know that I love this weather as I will wear knit caps inside and outside to complete the look! How can you not rock this newsy cap from Pierre Darre!
The resort collections have been hitting the runways and we're LOVING Michael Kors' Accessories in Resort 2013! The overall collection is a nod to Opulent Minimalism with vibrant gemtone hues as well as vibrant gold! You know that I believe it's essential to take inspiration from your look to bring it into your home! These clutches are perfect rich jade hues which is perfect for your dinnerwear as seen by this set from Baum and available at Kohl's as well as to enjoy it in the decadence of your outdoor space on this fabulous Palmetto Wicker Sofa at Pottery Barn.
We're almost out of January, our first month of the year and already, I'm thinking of vacation in the spring! With that said, we have to think about the brands that are a must to bring with you when it's time to take some time for yourself! First off, when it's time for Paul and I to take some super much needed time, my bag isn't complete without Norma Kamali! I have to say that I am typically not a girl who would wear a one piece; however, this classic piece is one that I would wear as it brings an essence of old world nostalgia with a sexiness of what a swimsuit can bring. This emerald suit is definitely a stunner and I love that today's accessories support this look with one of my favorite stones being jade! What I love most about this is - if you're taking a vacation with mixed groups whether it's family, friends, etc this style of suit allows you to show off your assets without being as obvious as wearing a bikini if you're in a quandry of what you should pack in terms of being appropriate.
Emilio Pucci's cuff is fabulous decadent and the perfect item to compliment the fab swimsuit. Gypsy Explore has a phenomenal necklace that is perfect for the halter swimsuit which is a great way to showcase this piece. In addition, I love the tassel and the ornate quality that is bound to draw stares. A girl should always have her handbag, so I'm loving the large envelope clutch by Pour La Victoire which has fun hardware and picks up this fab color that I can't get enough of. Slip on Tuleste Market's gold and tiger double egg ring which is a great way to add a little edge to the look. Finally, rock the entire look with a fun shoe from Fendi which adds another hue but is the perfect way to make you look phenomenal when you're on deck, in the cabana or wherever your destination takes you.
