dress / sunglasses / bracelet / watch / bag / heels

Whether you’re dressing up in your Easter finest for a mid-morning feast or joining friends for a weekend brunch, we think this minty shift is the perfect dress for the occasion. Pair it with heels in an unexpected, complimentary color and a neutral bag (to stuff all the extra muffins in when you leave).

We’re at a crossroads here, friends.

Lucky for us (and you!) this week’s deals offer discounts on a range of clothing to get us through both of those exciting activities.

10 Midi Skirts for Spring

February 28, 2014 at 12:52 pm , by

Good news — you only have to shave half of your legs this spring! It’s the season of the midi skirt, a hemline that ranges anywhere from just below the knee to just above the ankle. Whether you go for a 1950’s voluminous tea length style or prefer something sleek and fitted, the midi skirt adds a touch of old-school elegance to just about any look.

Wear it Now Wednesday: Let’s Get Sporty

February 5, 2014 at 8:00 am , by


Dress Up: necklace / dress / heels / bag

Dress Down: jacket / tee / skirt / sneakers / bag

Despite the forecast for extended winter (thanks for nothin’, Punxsutawney Phil!) the spring trends are rolling out and one of the best is sports-inspired pieces. Not only is this a rare anyone-can-wear-it trend, but also, there are endless ways to rock it. These two looks are our favorite–unexpected sporty stripes make this dress perfect for work or play and we’d wear that jacket with just about everything we own!

Wear it Now Wednesday: Now and Later

Now: earrings and necklace, baublebar.com, vest, ledonan,com, sweater, jcrew.com, designer skirt, marshallsonline.com for stores, boots, target.com, bag, zara.com
Later: blazer, veromoda.com, earrings, buablebar.com, tee, adidas.com, bag, zara.com, heels, us.asos.com

All these heavy winter clothes are staring to weigh us down. Those days of longing to curl up in a cozy sweater by the fire are gone. We’d prefer a breezy dress thank.you.very.much! However, since warm, sunny days are still in the distant future we’re focusing on how to wear our current wardrobes through that frightfully awkward period known as “transitional weather.” The key is investing in one or two gorgeous, statement pieces that not only lift your mood, but also provide a canvas to style both winter and spring outfits around. I mean, can we get a HELLO GORGEOUS to that skirt–just looking at it we feel better already. Pair it with neutrals for winter then step up your fashion game in spring by pairing it with an unexpected complimentary color (we promise purple and peach match, just look here!)

Spring Break Dreaming: Our Favorite Sunglasses

January 10, 2014 at 8:00 am , by

When we aren’t busy throwing on extra layers to brave the cold, we’re probably daydreaming about being somewhere tropical…or at least somewhere relatively warm. While bathing suit shopping might be jumping the gun a bit (especially since that gym membership resolution hasn’t kicked in yet…), sunglasses are totally fair game! Click through to shop some of our favorite shapes and styles.

Elizabeth and James Lafayette Sunglasses

Dramatic, retro-chic, and a bit out of the ordinary; we’d say this pair of Elizabeth and James shades accurately reflects its designers—Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Your Home in Honeysuckle: Pantone’s 2011 Color of the Year

March 2, 2011 at 12:58 pm , by

Pantone's Spring 2011 Color Forecast

Now that March has begun (can you feel yourself thawing?), we’re officially getting excited for all things spring – budding blooms, swinging sundresses, and, perhaps best of all,  fresh punches of color in our living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. What shade is on our radar this spring? Honeysuckle – a warm, playful pink that Pantone, the keeper of all things color, chose as the 2011 Color of the Year. The spring color forecast was laid out by committee last year (that’s right – they get together just to choose the colors that we’ll covet!), and we’re already seeing honeysuckle appear in some of our favorite spring decor choices.

This pretty pattern is sure to get you in the spirit for spring, with pops of honeysuckle among fresh green details. Bed Bath & Beyond
