Lust List

Wedding Ready

DRESS:: Club Monaco // EARRINGS:: ASHA // SHOES:: Rachel Roy, old (love these and these) // BAG:: Lauren Merkin, old (similar here and splurge here)  

When I first spotted this dress from Club Monaco I knew I needed it. The color is one of my all time favorites (other than white of course) and thought it would be the perfect dress for all of the weddings I have coming up. I love the fitted bodice and the sheer tier of lace at the bottom. It also comes in a pretty "rose" color which is more of a light coral/peach shade.

I decided to wear this dress with one of my favorite pairs of earrings by ASHA. My sister gave these "Behati" earrings to all of her bridesmaids last year for her wedding and they have become one of my favorite pairs of earrings to date. And a huge bonus of course, they are SUPER light weight.

Friday Favorites :: Vanessa Mooney Astrid Earrings

It's finally Friday and I am more than ready for the weekend! This week was a little slow and the gloomy weather didn't help but what did get me through were my Shopbop purchases! One purchase in particular were the Vanessa Mooney Astrid earrings! I am so in love with them I already am eyeing this color for my next pair!

They are incredibly light and are actually longer and bigger than anticipated but I'm all about a statement piece. I chose the white because they will be a staple piece of mine this Spring and Summer plus I love a white earring against my brunette hair! The Astrid knots also come in similar beaded styles!

Stay tuned for a post next week - I will be styling them with an outfit this weekend!

Sale Alert :: Ann Taylor & Loft

Want to know one of our best kept secrets? We LOVE Ann Taylor and the Loft! Both are always promoting huge sales at a crazy markdown! Loft is having an extra 50% off all sale styles PLUS buy one top or sweater ( I have this lace up one) and get the next 50% off! Ann Taylor is having 40% off select full priced styles with code WARMUP at checkout.

 I tend to scoop up a lot from here during the Spring and Summer because they have a great selection of easy dresses to throw on for work, wide leg pants and jumpsuits and can we talk about these shoes!?

I actually went to Ann Taylor yesterday to try on these floral pants and they did not disappoint. Easy and breezy, I can wear them to work and play!

 What's really standing out to me is this chambray top, this fringed sweater, this bell sleeved top and this foldover clutch!

Spring Style

TOP:: Club Monaco // BAG:: Cult Gaia (back in stock but going FAST) // SHOES:: BP (and only $60) // JEANS:: J Brand (old but similar style here on sale)  // EARRINGS:: Jules Smith // SUNGLASSES:: Ray-Ban

If you didn't know the back story, you would probably think these pictures were taken on a carefree afternoon. It was actually the PERFECT spring day when Brooke and I snapped these photos. The weather was 70 and sunny and this location (thanks to Brooke) was super dreamy. But my morning was anything but perfect. Lila was still battling an ear infection and was super cranky, Charlie projectile spit up all over me seconds before I walked out the door (tried desperately to cover up spit up stains with my bag), and Hunter had a disastrous dentist appointment that probably shook me more than it shook him. Just a cleaning, but my boy hates the dentist and I really don't blame him. To say I was frazzled when I left the house is an understatement. I think I had about 15 minutes to "get ready" and head out the door. I actually threw on this top as I was walking out to my car. Sorry for the show, neighbors! But I swear the second I got in my car, rolled down the windows and started to drive I instantly relaxed (sorry kids). Nothing like feeling the sun for the first time after and LONG and cold winter. And of course, putting on this fun new top didn't hurt either!

Tuesday Shoesday :: Nicholas Kirkwood

It's been a while since we did a Tuesday Shoesday post but shoes are on the brain after visiting Saks this past weekend in Greenwich. The shoe department up there recently took over another building so it's basically walking into shoe heaven. The Arterior light fixtures and the blush velvet chairs made this space not only beautiful but light and airy and all about the shoes.

After circling the floor probably eight times, I kept coming back to the Nicholas Kirkwood section. The Beya leather loafers are now number one on my list to add to my closet for Spring. The pointy loafer is perfect for a day to night transition ( there is something about a pointed toe that can dress an outfit up) and the tiny gold accent on the heel made this loafer a standout for me. The Beya comes in leather and suede and a handful of colors.

But wait the Beya's get even better! They also come in MULES!! How stunning are these blush suede mules?!

Weekend Sales

We hope you are all having a nice weekend and a very happy Easter to those celebrating. We thought we would do a quick roundup of a great sale happening right now in case you have any eggstra (extra) time on your hands today. Loft is having a Cyber Spring sale with 50% (yes 50!) off of everything! Use code CYBER at check out. Here is what we love::

  • I love Loft for everyday staples. Since everyday life with kids is pretty messy, I like to wear things that wash easily and that I don't mind getting dirt and spit up on. I just purchased these tops (here, here and here) and at about $20 a piece I can guarantee they will be a huge part of my spring and summer uniform. 
  • There is something about this beach skirt that I love. I'm hoping it won't be too long on me! 
  • Maybe not the most exciting thing in the world but they have the best selection of no show socks. How cute are these?
  • I think everyone needs an easy black jumpsuit- and this one is $44!
  • You know I'm a sucker for a white top. Love this off the shoulder one and this one shoulder one!
Don't forget- today is the last day for the Shopbop sale!
