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!

Striped Sequins


It’s New Year’s Eve and I’m sure you all have been spending weeks perfecting every piece of sparkle that you will be wearing tonight. However, if you have waited until the last minute to pick out a glittering ensemble or are not happy with what you chose weeks ago, don’t fear.

While the mall is waaay too crowded to step my size 9 feet in, and with the massive amount middle schoolers running around because of winter break, I decided to do a little shopping in my mom’s closet.

I came across this sparkly, striped shirt and I decided that it was the perfect piece to wear to ring in 2012!

This Balmain dress is sparkly, scrumptious, and striped like my vinty piece!
