Pop of Coral

 TOP:: Velvet by Graham & Spencer (on sale here but limited sizes) // JEANS:: J.Brand (old but similar here) // EARRINGS:: Kenneth Jay Lane // BAG:: Kayu // SHOES:: Jimmy Choo (Less expensive style here) // RING:: Madewell

Let me just start off by wishing all the moms out there a very belated Happy Mother's Day! Mine kind of went something like this: tantrum, meltdown, spit up, meltdown, tantrum, tantrum, meltdown, spit up. Charlie was only responsible for the spit up part because he is actually THE perfect baby (minus the whole waking up at 5 am every day). And my other two hoodlums didn't really get the whole Mother's Day memo and decided that Sunday was the best day to unravel. So my husband and I decided we are having a Mother's Day do over next weekend when hopefully everyone is in a much better mood. But meltdowns or not, I'm so grateful I get to be their mom. They are my greatest joys... even when they tell me I'm not their friend anymore. (What are the teenage years going to look like?!?)

On to the outfit:: I'm a huge fan of an "all white" look for summer. I think I spend the majority of the summer in either some sort of white dress or white jeans and a white top. I think you might know by now I have an addiction to white tops. I rarely wear black- a few weeks ago I put on a black silk top and my husband looked at me funny, paused, and said "why do you look so different right now?" I have nothing against it, I just prefer to wear lighter colors. I saw this top by Velvet while browsing online about a month ago and it immediately caught my attention. The crochet detail is so pretty and feminine- and the keyhole detail on the back (not pictured but click on the link to see) is stunning. I also found it for 40% off here- limited sizes!

It also comes in a few different styles:: this dress version which I'm dying for and it's ON SALE. It comes in a one shoulder style which is so pretty and fresh for summer, it comes in a black dress style, and this looser tee shirt style (here, too!) I just discovered the Velvet by Graham & Spencer boutique on Greenwich Avenue and was so pleasantly surprised when I popped in. I usually come across their items while browsing online but loved going to their actual store to see their entire collection- check out their online boutique here.

These earrings are just about everywhere right now but I haven't come across a color quite like the ones I'm wearing. This "coral" shade is so vibrant in person and I've gotten so many compliments every time I've worn them! They also come in seven other colors. And if you are looking for a less expensive version- find them here!
