Shades of summer

What could be better than lazy sun filled days? Summer is just the best!!
From simple minimal makeup to your outfit, neutrals and pastels are the perfect compliment..

Minimal makeup. Les Beiges for cheeks and a nude palette for eyes (with just one quick application of mascara)!

Beautiful detail on this sleeveless blouse makes it less casual, while still keeping you cool on hot summer days.

Sunday Blues

Yes, yesterday I did have the Sunday blues.
Referring to the outfit colour choice only – there was nothing to be emotionally blue about during this sensational sunday in the city that I love.

Sunday brunch with friends is always a treat.

This was no exception. From great decor and food, to some live music.
I was certainly not blue about the bottomless Mimosa on offer either 🙂

Tribeca Grand Hotel really has a great Sunday brunch offering!

Finally – fun in the sun!

After a long NY winter where the Polar Vortex introduced itself, it was a very welcome change to finally be enjoying a weekend outside on a deck with some sun. No puffer jackets required!!!!

This weekend look was built around my favourite pants at the moment, the AG Stilts.
I am obsessed with them. They are flattering, comfortable – and I want them in every colour.

The complete look – with open toe wedges Yay for warmer weather.

Ok, so firstly EPIC FAIL!
Yes this weeks Wanted Wednesday is in fact being posted on Thursday. Sorry about that. Super busy bee this week…

Finally though, here we go.
This weeks Wanted Wednesday is this smokin’ pair of Helmut Lang leather pants.

Because honestly – who out there wouldn’t want these flattering, cropped, tight fitting, HOT pants that cost only a weeks rent??? No really – who??

Hope to see you in your leather.

Romance NYC Style

Romance is not dead – nor should it be.
Just take a look around Central Park. The couple on a picnic, the first date happening at the Boat House, the husband rowing his wife under the Bow Bridge.

Diane von Furstenberg coral creation adds its own romantic touch to this city escape.
The cut, colour, flowing fabric, the detail of the subtle pleating.

Short Shorts

Forget the LBD (ok jokes) – but, what about the LITTLE BLACK SHORTS?

I love them in spring, I love them in summer.
I love them casual, i love them dressy.
I love them on The Hart Of Dixie and the resulting disruption they cause to the town of Bluebell.

This past Sunday, I channeled my inner Zoe Hart and took my favourite little black shorts out to Brooklyn.
Teamed up with a summery colour blocked tank – and my new Manolo Blahniks (their first excursion!!)

Colour block top (similar here)
Shorts – Loft (similar here)
Pumps – Manolo Blahnik Kandita-Mod Sandal

While some perceive them to be casual, I disagree and believe you can make the little black short a dressy statement.

Bring out the legs for summer.
