Just a few weeks ago I commented to someone about how the weather has been pretty decent for winter! In fact, we have even had some unseasonably warm days which was nice and then we hit the weather that took place yesterday - rain snow mix! I suppose we can't really complain as it's not so bad but the teasing of what we can wear as we get closer and closer to Spring is unbearable. So to that end, I'm always glad when I get a chance to travel during this time of year - but how do you travel best when you're going to a warmer climate?
I'm heading out to Charleston on Thursday morning and will be back home Friday afternoon. On a trip like this, I tend to have my garment bag and a weekender so that I don't have a lot to take with me and it ensures that everything can come on the plane with me. I love a look that lets me get right off of the plane and straight to what I need to do! I love a good kaftan and once you roll over the images, you'll see what pieces I love using and rocking so that I have great effortless style even when I'm up in the air.

Although gold is not a color people see me wearing in my outfits, it is a color that I love seeing within decor options! I'm inspired by this fab art deco gold and emerald bracelet from Lucas Jack in terms of how to bring this within your home office. This wing tipped chair is the perfect way to establish your work space and of course work from this fab olive brand chest that is ornate.
Now it's all about the accents and the need to accessorize your space on another level. I love this leather Moroccan gold ottoman which can be used to prop your feet as well as to have extra seating space. This gold pillow is also a great choice with its ruching.
When the lighting's right you can get a number of items done and you never know when inspiration strikes so having this Antoinette mirror across the way to catch it is definitely encouraged.
Finally, feel like a queen by popping in emerald to the look whether it's your mug, toasting glass. Finally, even when you're working hard, your nourishment should still be presented in a fabulous way - like this Williams Sonoma fabulous platter which is made out of stone and accented by silver (not gold but I love mixing metal)!

As many of you know, I have my own jewelry line, Kitten Couture which uses natural stones and seashells. Now my pieces are for all seasons; however, now that we are officially in Spring - this is the perfect time to reintroduce you to the collection. I love having pops of color within my jewelry as I tend to wear a lot of solids and simple pieces. This is a great way to change your look and really play up many of your favorite pieces. Above, I have a piece made of Botswana Agate, Mother of Pearl, Carnelian, Tiger Eye and Turquoise. Known as Ariel, this is a great piece that brings in elements of the sea while also being perfect with the addition of neutral tones as well.
Below is one of my other favorites and is also a chunky necklace that contains many of the same pieces that are above. The Alexandra has large Mother of Pearl shells, Carnelian, Agate and Snail Sell as well. Both pieces are done as lariats so that you can choose how many times you like to wrap them around your neck and how you wish to tie them. From now until April 15th, I am offering a special deal via this site where you can receive any piece at 50% off. Simply email me and let me know your piece; however, everyone should have a great piece that stands out or is perfect for a special day. I'll keep you guys up to date on what's going on with Kitten Couture and where you can find us! In the mean time, enjoy our Spring Fling Sale from now through April 15th where each piece has been reduced for a limited time to boost your look!
