pops of pink.

this past weekend was filled with sunny skies, bbq’s with friends, a little bit of work and a few dirty gibsons {my new cocktail of choice}. ok, a lot of dirty gibsons. and with the arrival of this beautiful spring weather, i’ve slowly started incorporating bright accents to my routine- transitioning my wardrobe {and life} into full swing spring. as per usual, i’m starting with pink- adding neon clutches to fresh pink blooms. here are a few springtime snaps:

{my new favorite bracelet, made from vintage vinyl records, adds a hint of pink to my wrist. i am also loving my yellow/pink beaded beauty from lb bracelets}

for the boys: part two.

last fall i compiled a list of the season’s must haves for the boys out there… and with the summer time {and summer shares}  around the corner, i thought i’d put together my favorite poolside picks. from bold hues & geo prints to retro sunglasses & psycho bunnies here are my choices summer 2012…

{bright colored cable knits, aqua shorts & chic sunglasses make an early debut on these warm spring days… in addition to two new modeling careers}

happy feet.

you lucky ducks: two shoe posts in a row! i bought these sun-shining beauties on our maui vacay and i can’t wait for their hamptons debut in a mere few weeks. the sales girl referred to these MYMU ceci wedges as her “happy” shoes… and i would have to agree. the trio of colors brings a smile to my face, and pair perfectly with both boyfriend jeans and maxi dresses alike. find your own pair here, and get some summertime happy!

i want these, please.

{chanel white lace stunners}

ever since i saw the one and only man repeller rocking these beauties up close and personal at fashion week, i’ve been obsessed. although i’m not sure where i would ever wear them, i can’t stop thinking about them… while it’s clear i’m pretty cool, i’m not so sure i’m cool enough to pull off a black and white lace bootie.  at least not during the day with jeans, which is how i envision them looking their coolest.  alas, a girl can dream. and maybe someday i’ll be lucky enough to enter that upper echelon of style that allows a girl to don a boyfriend jean-chanel booties combo to pick up her dry cleaning. until then, i have these pictures to lust after…

{although not chanel, these nicholas kirkwood lace-up lace booties would do the trick}
