You thought I was going to say bracelets, didn’t you?
At first glance these rings do look like bracelets. But they are actually the miniature version perfectly sized for ring fingers instead.
I adore the turquoise rings with brushed gold stripes and a fun bezel-set rhinestone, of course. These ring sets also come in black, white, orange, mint and peach too. (I can’t wrap my head around these colors again — too high school!)
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.
I often forget to update my older son’s wardrobe. The younger one has clothing to wear and grow into en masse.
However, it never fails that a calendar turn to a new season leaves my 5YO with floods (I like to call the “mapris,” men’s capris) and too tight t-shirts, which hey! look great on on super hot fireman, but not so much on skinny little boys.
I invested a small fortune into shorts last year, and those seem to fit, but we are quickly growing out of the over, oversized H&M tees in the 2-4 size… really more like a 5-6 size. And luckily, I have been able to ban the bears watching TV on a shirt that says, “Salt Lake City,” a gift from unnamed family members.
So out with the old and in with the new. New J.Crew that is. As soon as their bi-monthly 30% off sale hits, I’m going to fill my virtual cart with adorable, distressed tees and sweatshirts in one size larger, so I don’t have to do this again next year… barring a ridiculous growth spurt.
I love this picture that I found on Pinterest. It reminds me that Mad Men is coming, and that I go ga-ga for the style on that show. And luckily the clothing makers have followed suit! Oh! How I would love to be the lucky lady, who has this skirt…
Looking Parisian-chic in stripes should be a cinch this season. Anything and everything you could ever want can be found in stripes. And this adorable blazer is no exception. It has a great fit, it’s a great weight for spring and summer, and it looks great with every color under the sun.
My Banana Republic happens to be next door to Ann Taylor, where there is also an adorable red knit dress that I would love to wear with it for going out or a day at the office. But throw it on with jeans and a bright yellow tee, and you have a cute “around town” outfit. Or choose kelly green boyfriend chinos and a denim shirt for a business casual Friday and shopping with your best girls. The possibilities are endless! (See Polyvore.com for where to buy.)
