Who doesn't love rocking yellow? It looks fabulous, makes you feel warm inside and there are so many ways to do it to make you feel comfortable. First, I'm loving this white tank with yellow embroidery from Anthropologie which has such a free flowing lok to it which will look fab with the flared trousers from Alberti Biani. Make it look fab by rocking a pair of Christian Louboutin which are white with a red back and heels and black straps. Rafe makes this look even more chic with their miniaudiere solid shell clutch and of course bling it out with Tiffany & Co's citrine ring!
It's another day closer to one of my favorite weeks of the year, NYFW! As I sit thinking about a number of my fave shows, they're even more amazing when you have amazing looks to rock. I'm a huge fan of Roberto Cavalli and this particular piece is perfect for easy peasy days when I'm watching my favorite shows and then heading off to appearances. Because his designs are always super colorful, you can pop in accessories. I love Emily Armenta's ring which incorporates a bit of the hue of the dress while standing alone. The gold leaf cuff from Catherine Weitzman has a nice natural look to it that sits gracefully on your arm. Finally, the clutch from Serpui Marie checkerboard shell is a gorgeous way to enhance the overall look!
As you're reading this, I'm flying to St Petersburg for HSN so that I can start training on camera for my time with Sebago which will take place in Feb! I am a huge fan of Tory Burch, her boho chic style is one that I love without question and I have also enjoyed throwing an event at their NoHo store as well. Last wek, I kicked off the first day of December at their Meat Packing District Store with a number of bloggers. Our mission was to style a look from the resort collection whether it was ski inspired or beach oriented! Now knowing me, you know that I had to think beach. My vision was to have a nautical bikini that had a gorg orange cardigan to create a pop of color as you head to your SoBe cabana (preferably at the Delano). Accessories are everything, so I loved including wedges, a large bag and gorg shell necklaces and a bracelet to complete this look. I think that my model is phenom and even even better - I would SO wear this look without a second thought! Although I love it, you'll be able to have the opportunity to vote for your favorite model look so that you can weigh in on Tory Burch's Facebook Page!
My style is definitely super easy. I need clothes that I can move in, run around and can cover a number of things as who knows how my day will end up? I am known for having great core basics and then amping it up with accessories. It's a signature and one I continue to perfect over the years! Especially when the weather is so back and forth, it's all about layers and with me, many of my looks in this season and the summer begin with Gap's essential or 'My Favorite Tee/Tank'. Simple colors that can be paired with a number of looks and pieces to ensure that people will ask where you got it from. Throwing a super cute jacket or shrug completes the look and on a day like today, wearing a pair of cute flared pants is a great way to complete the look. Philip Lim's shrug is perfect so that if the weather warms up, you won't be too warm and yet there is a pop of dressiness to this that makes it look like you put thought into your look.
Apart is a brand that you will see a lot of around here and they love Kitten Lounge and its readers so enjoy 10% off of your purchases by using the code - KittenApril as you shop! In fact, for those in NYC, they will have an amazing Hamptons style shopping event next month that I am co-hosting with them and of course, I will share some styling tips with you as well! Finally, a fun piece changes the dynamic of the entire look so Kitten Couture (yes my collection) has created this fun safari/tribal piece that you can wear super long OR that you can wrap. It is inspired by this whole Hamptons theme that will be kicked off on the site in May and is made of shells, wooden beads, snail shell, botswana agate and glass beads - but it's super light! This is definitely going back to basics for Spring.
Even though we're not even half way through to the end of the month, there are lots of great things going on at Kitten Lounge, Kitten Couture and our partners. For those that were participating in our Exhale events for this week, due to some switches, we are now doing this April 26th (with a fun event on this date) - May 3rd. We will also share with you our Hamptons Guide which launches the first of the month, our 4 Hamptons Totes that we are giving way (the value is over $500 per tote), our Hamptons Baby Shower baskets, our Hamptons event with Apart and so much more - there's lots going on so you'll definitely want to make sure that you're signed up for our newsletters and tweets to stay in the know!
You guys this is so exciting! The beautiful piece shown here is an exclusive lariat from my collection, Kitten Couture! It is available on 66 Degrees! This Ontario based site looks for designers that are willing to create exclusive items that are only available in limited quantities. So I created the Alli which includes Botswana Agate, Carnelian, Snail Shell and more! This was such an amazing process and you should check out the site to see what other designers have created from jewelry, furniture and art! I love the idea of being introduced to designers that you may not have been aware of and this is exactly what this site aims to do! This is definitely and exciting day for me and one that I couldn't wait to share with all of you. Please pass this on and thank you so much for being apart of this amazing day!!!
