Daily Covet: Burberry Rugby-Striped Sandals

More sandals?

I know, I know, more sandals….

But as I mentioned, footwear will be big for me this summer.  And that definitely includes safe, yet sexy platform and wedge sandals.

After all, I’m going to be a little top heavy.

Today, my fave sandals are these Burberry Rugby Striped Sandals from Zappos Couture.  And while I realize they are a little pricey, when will any Burberry print not be in style?

Right.  Never.

Mad Men Season 6 Returns!

Hi bloggy friends!  Just in time for my serious bout with spring fever, Mad Men is returning.

That means I won’t mind spending a few more cold, winter evenings curled up on my couch watching my all-time favorite show!

If you are a fan like me, this is stellar news.  (Season 5 was a long time in the making… my Mad heart couldn’t take that long of a break again!)  Sunday, April 7th is the date for the two-hour premier… gasp!

Here’s a cast teaser to get you in the mood!

Daily Covet: Kate Spade Darla Sandal

Is it summer yet?

I’m ready for sandals.  How about Kate Spade Darla Sandals to be exact?  These are absolutely the cutest with all the colors of the rainbow and natural-colored pantent straps.  Three patent straps that I absolutely love.  This is a great update from similar sandals last summer and I love the new look.

I know we’ve got a long way to go, but I’m needing to pump my collection of cute wedges, flip flops, maxi dresses, handbags and accessories.

Why?  Because I will be spending the summer (all or most of it) pregnant.  Yep, you heard it here… and here for a twist on the news… that this girl will be putting high fashion on hold in favor of roomy (and tent-like) clothing.  But I digress…

Let’s just take a look and a drool at these pretties!

Daily Covet: Metallic Mini Clutch by Eric Javits

The perfect gold clutch.

I’ve been looking for the perfect gold clutch for several years.  I have these fantastic gold strappy sandals that I want to wear with pretty much everything all summer long.

This gold mini clutch from Eric Javits is the right size, the right classic shape, and I adore the little tassel.  Also, the signature flower closure matches the leather cut-out blooms on my sandals.

I guess at $300+ for this evening bag, I really would have to wear those shoes with EVERYTHING, ALL SUMMER LONG!

Daily Covet: Lilly Pulitzer Charlene Dress in Stripes

I know it’s only early January, but Spring Fever is kicking in hard core.

I’m tired of knee boots, jeans, turtlenecks and heavy coats already.  I’m really wanting to wear lightweight dresses and sandals or flip flops, open-toed shoes and bright-colored shorts.

Obviously, there are a few months — even after the snow is gone for good — that sleeves and heavier fabrics are still in order.  That’s why this adorable striped Lilly Pulitzer Charlene Dress would be the perfect transition to warmer weather and shorter hemlines.

Daily Covet: Built-in Wardrobes

I’m looking for more space.

An exhaustive search for new homes in my neighborhood have led to no good options… in our price range, at least!  So, I’m looking at ways that this girl can get room for more shoes and clothing in the space I already have.

I went to Google, which led me to pinterest.  I found this amazing built-in wardrobe with gorgeous doors and mercury glass mirrored panels.  This is my absolute dream and I’ve got just the wall for it.  I also wouldn’t mind adding that chandelier to my wish list.

The question is:  How much is this going to set me back?

Daily Covet: Eyelet Trench

Everyone knows the trench is a time-honored staple.

Trenches are a timeless wardrobe piece that every fashionista needs in her (and his!) outerwear collection.

The traditional trench is khaki.  Then came the pink or navy trenches with green and white polka dot linings.  Or the yellow trench most commonly worn with Hunter Wellies.

But now an Eyelet Trench from Elevenses?!  Anthropologie has the cutest blue and white eyelet trench for Spring.  This trench is so feminine, but features military-inspired epaulets and a waist-cinching belt.

Better yet — It’s adorable over bright yellow capri pants as seen here.
