Blood Orange Brunch


This morning I celebrated a sunny Easter morning in the Carribbean (sorry chilly New Englander’s). We dined at the Ritz for brunch and thought it was the perfect holiday to wear a blood orange sheer top. It’s festive, Easter’esque, and kept me cool as a cucumber!

And of course it matched the blood orange mimosa’s we sipped on. What can I say…I match my drinks to my outfits!

These tropical flowers were the perfect background to capture my top!

I also wore my sheer top on my birthday weekend in St. Barths!

Jill Stuart loves the soon-to-be-a-Crayola-color (I wish) so much, that she sent multiple outfits with the blood orange hue down her Spring 2012 runway!

Ostrich Orange



While the Wrentham Outlets can make one pass out from the overwhelming amount of great deals they offer, they sure are a must go-to spot for the holiday season (hopefully none of you went on Black Friday though…yikes).

Lina and I ventured there before St. Barths and popped into the Kate Spade outlet.

Well we almost got escorted out of the store for shrieking with excitement. One corner there was 40% off of purses and I turn around and the shoes are 70% off the sale price!!! I had to sit down and catch my breath before an ambulance was called.

Lina convinced me to get these bright orange ostrich patterned heels. I wasn’t sure where I would be able to wear these angels, but luckily I found the perfect outfit to wear them with… 

Definitely incorporating these sweet dreams into my winter wardrobe…I’ll keep you posted on how.

Michael Kors did a whole line of Ostrich Orange bags for his fall 2011 collection!

How do you feel about ostrich details? Would you wear bright orange for the fall/winter?

The Stone Age



St. Barths calls for the beachiest of looks!

I knew I couldn’t be wearing heavy, dark chunky necklaces when I was there because my look would scream East Coast and I wanted to blend with the locals!

When I went to NYC a few weeks ago, I found a DE-LI-CIOUS stone cuff that I had seen walk down the runway at one of that fashion shows in September…clearly I had to have it!

I’m obsessed with the green/gold combo!

This pendant was being displayed outside a store in SB!

While perusing some St. Barths shops, I came across some AMAZING agate stone necklaces! 

St. Barths Stone Gems: 255 € aka $345!!

NYC Stone Hidden Gem: $13

Are you loving the stone trend? Would you wear it as a necklace, bracelet, or both?
