For Mother’s Day, you deserve the perfect outfit for brunch after your early morning workout at The Class by Taryn Toomey. After you have worked out all your angst for the day, go home, shower, and put this perfectly pink blush dress by Victoria Beckham on with a sexy pair of Christian Louboutin nude pumps and you will be ready to go to that Scarpetta Beverly Hills brunch with your kids and husband in tow. After all it is Mother’s Day, you have to spend some time with your family.
Summer is around the corner and even though it was snowing in Colorado this week, it has been warm in many places and summer is coming. By Memorial Day weekend you are going to want to have some fun pool toys to take to your friend’s house or have at your own home for a pool party. One of the best pool floats I have seen this year has got to be the WHOLE PIZZA PIE float. Yes you heard me right, it is a full pizza made up of 8 slices that detaches and attaches with bungee cords to form a whole pie. The photos tell the whole story. I think this is brilliant. The other food floats are also great. The Everything Bagel float and the Chocolate Chip Cookie float are also fun. This whole pizza pie is on sale here.

Pizza has been on my mind lately // I spent 8 hours packing up our house yesterday for a remodel and ordered spinach skinny crust pizzas from Fresh Brothers. While it rained, I worked on packing up my whole house one room at a time while happily munching on pizza. It was a productive day. As I decluttered, packed and gave away things from every room of my house, I started thinking about summer break and things we might need for our summer beach days. Since it is snowing in Boston, New York, and Ohio at the moment and raining on the West Coast, it is a good time to stop and daydream about warmer weather and beach days.
My 2 must have items for summer are the Giant Pizza Pie towel that measures 5 feet x 5 feet and the Giant Pizza slice beach float. Nothing says summer like pizza pie parties. I love the Giant Pizza pie towel because it is round. Rather unusual for a beach towel and super fun. The float is a slice of pizza and looks great floating in the pool next to all the boring usual suspects.
Giant Pizza Pie towel is $26
Giant pizza slice is $35

Sandy Liang is a new talent out of New York City that is doing all kinds of edgy designs you have not seen before. Loving the pretty floral motif motorcycle leather jacket that mixes the edgy chic with a fun whimsical floral embroidery all over the jacket. Makes you want to wear this jacket all spring into fall with everything from floral dresses to black jeans. No matter what, this is a must have for spring.
Leave it to Karl to make airplanes on a top from Chanel not look like something you would buy your 3 year old from Gymboree. I cannot believe how much I want this odd, but luxurious looking short sleeve top from Chanel. Check out the athleisure airplane motif sweatpants. Those are kinda cool in the craziest way right? I can see Manrepeller wearing this ensemble and looking perfect in it. If I wore it I would look like the woman who didn’t know how to get dressed. The printed velcro strap Birkenstock like sandals top off the whole outfit in its utter absurdity and yet don’t you really really want the whole outfit and want to drag the silver $7000 Chanel carry-on suitcase through LAX or JFK?
If you want an alternative to this airplane ensemble, there isn’t one and maybe that is why it is so genius. Only thing I found was a dress from Modcloth with airplanes on it, but it was more of a rockabilly style versus this runway look. One other I found from Evangeline Clothing was a little chicer in its cut with airplanes just on the skirt of the dress. Other alternatives include men’s boxer shorts with airplanes from Tom & Teddy and an Anna Coroneo small wrist silk scarf with airplanes on it from Neiman Marcus. See what I mean? Karl is a genius! Say what you will about how absurd this whole outfit seems, but it is perfect in so many ways. The perfect tailoring and cut of the top and the sweatpants and the fabrics in which these airplanes have been printed make these pieces must haves for all of you Chanel collectors out there. Do you agree with me?
Have you ever thought what is the model off duty look and how do I get it? The main pieces models are wearing these days seem to be bomber jackets, Nike tennis sneakers in all black, and black leggings with a faux rip. It is the new model off duty uniform. I love the look and wish I actually look like the 5 feet 10 inch models who carry the looks so well when I wear my trusty bomber jacket. Anyhow, it doesn’t really matter because we should all try to put our own unique stamp on our looks no matter how tall or short we are.
Here are some of my favorite bomber jackets for that look that we have been seeing everywhere from Paris Fashion Week to New York Fashon Week.
Topshop black nylon bomber jacket for $110
Forever 21 bomber jacket for $27.90
Nike black sneakers for $105
Nesh Torn Ripped Leggings for $163
If you ever wanted to look effortless and like one of those blogger / models off duty, the perfect outfit would include one of those loose pullover sweaters in a blush pink, a pair of lace up pointy toe flats, and a vegan tan colored tote bag. This effortless style will take you from weekend off duty brunch to going to drinks with some friends. Either way you can use all three of these pieces separately over and over again.
Get the vegan tote for $48
Get the pleated hem sweater for $89
Get the pointy toe lace up flats for $95
The Marc Fisher Platform Ankle Strap Espadrilles are the best looking platform espadrilles for the spring 2016 season. Yes I know we are still working through a few more weeks of El Nino and we need the rain because of the drought in Los Angeles. However, when the rainy season is over, Los Angeles will be all about hot weather and sunshine again. When this happens, don’t you want to be prepared with the best looking 4 1/2 inch platform sandals around for the summer? I cannot decide if I like the black suede or the natural brown more. It is such a tough decision and I already have a denim dress in mind that I want to wear with the sandals. Which one do you think is more versatile? And don’t they look a lot like a pair of Chloe platform sandals for 4 times the price?
