If you are as obsessed about Big Little Lies as I am, you are probably reading the book after you finished watching the show on HBO that stars Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Laura Dern, Shailene Woodley, and Zoe Kravitz. My favorite scene was of course the finale where everyone was dressed up in some Audrey Hepburn costume. I want all the accessories from that final scene.
My must haves are the following:
The pink tassel earrings seen on Reese Witherspoon that night – similar earrings can be found at Baublebar.com for $36 OR a pair by Kenneth Jay Lane has the exact turquoise bead and pink tassel combination from the show here.
String of pearls seen on Nicole Kidman’s character – similar pearl necklace can be found here for $48
This past week I took a trip to New York City with my daughter and her friend. We had to be equipped for lots of walking and every type of weather. Our first day in New York City we had 70 degree sunny weather and the next day we had 56 degree weather with a thunder storm. On day 3 we had 46 degree sunny weather. We wore faux shearling coats, sweaters, sneakers, and tee shirts and layered for every day that we were in New York City.
On my last day I wore my favorite lace black sweater that I bought for under $20 here. The black lace sweater was worn with Alice + Olivia round sunglasses, DL1961 black denim jeans, and Valentino stud sneakers. This was the perfect outfit to wear for a walk through Central Park to the Natural History Museum and onto dinner at Marta in Grammercy Park on 29th Street.
Below I converted my daytime outfit simply by throwing on my Velvet Faux Shearling coat on over my under $20 sweater and had dinner at Marta. I used my Chanel backpack throughout the entire trip since it was lightweight and held everything I needed from day until dinner.
Yellow is so big this season, you gotta try to get in on it whether you get a yellow dress like the one from Endless Rose, or a great looking lace sweater like the one from J.Crew. You cannot miss this cheerful trend for summer. And if you hop on it soon you can get the J Crew sweater for 30% off too. Use code YESPLEASE at checkout. Don’t forget to add a yellow bag. My personal favorite is the Gucci yellow bag. If you are very extroverted, get a pair of yellow sandals too. This color will be the IT color for spring and summer. Steve Madden made the most fantastic yellow sandals for summer because they are sexy and minimalist to show off the legs.
We spent our Sunday at Smorgasburg Los Angeles trying out new foods from food trucks and hanging out. What a fun way to spend a Sunday. The parking is organized with the Ella Moss and Splendid parking lot, there is music playing, clean restrooms, and security keeping us safe. It is an organized clean way to check out all the best hip food trucks that our in Los Angeles today.
We tried an delicious egg and braised pork Bahn Mi Vietnamese sandwich from Bahn Oui which had the freshest picked vegetables we have tasted, 3 colorful and delicious chicken curry and spicy pork dumplings on top of a salad from Workaholic, and a delicious literal waffle cone matcha green tea ice cream sundae from Yellow Business. It was a music and taste sensory overload all at once and we loved every bite and minute of it.
There is no other way to dress for spring that with a great pair of espadrilles and distressed denim jeans. It is a chic casual way to dress comfortably. The look will take you from museums in the city to a cafe in Europe. Wherever you are going this spring or summer, be sure to pack a pair of espadrilles with a few pair of distressed denim jeans.
Interesting new fashion trend – wear a skirt that looks like it was made from a tablecloth. I am not sure I am loving the new trend of piecing a few ideas together to form one piece of clothing. I don’t mind the layered button up shirt under a sweater look, but the ruffled gingham red and white pizza shop tablecloth with a skirt design I am not so sure. There are so many options though if you are interested, take a look at the red and white option from Pamplemousse, Preen by Thornton Bregazzi option, or Christopher Kane’s Gingham and floral design. It is like the ultimate designer upcycle project. On the fence about this one. One thing I like is how they are paired together with white sneakers. This skirt and sneakers trend I can get behind. I would wear them with Valentino Rockstud sneakers.
Let’s cut to the chase. If you are looking for THE sneaker for Spring 2017, get the Valentino Rockstud white sneakers with the pyramid studs now. Yes they are the one’s that Goop was seen wearing a little bit ago, but they are back in full force for spring. These beauties have a 1 inch heel and look great with a fun skirt or dress for summer or with your favorite sneakers. You won’t leave these in your closet unless you need to go to a formal event. These are MY PICK for must have designer sneaker for the season.
It is a great time to get that J Crew eyelet sweater you have been eyeing. I love the lace, eyelet combo in a practical sweater. You can wear the navy with a pair of white jeans for spring and you look very Jackie O and ready to go. Get it in time for that Katie Holmes special that is coming out soon and you can channel your own inner Jackie O. She never wore white with black bottoms, she always reversed it so that she wore the light color on the bottom and the dark colors on top and looked very European chic. That is why I mentioned this combo would be very Jackie O.
If you want a fun Chanel ish jacket for spring. There are many great options this season since the Chanel style jacket has been in style for several seasons now and is not going away any time soon. One of my favorite finds this season has got to be this under $50 white Chanel ish jacket with the red and white stripes. You can find the white jacket here. Other options I like include a navy version from Veronica Beard, a white jacket from Veronica Beard, a multi color version from Juicy Couture, and a black jacket from Rebecca Taylor. Storets also has a cool one that may not be sold out, but check and see if it is still available. To find a Chanel boy bag for less check out options from The Real Real.
If there is ever a time to stock up for Spring. It is on the first day of Spring. Saks is doing their STOCK UP FOR SPRING sale and it has got to be one of my favorite sales because you shop and can get up to $700 back in a gift card to spend for later. So what are you thinking for spring? Do you need a new Saint Laurent bag? I am also loving the white dresses from IRO and Carven for spring.
