Petal Pink

From On May 2, 2011

I’ve really been enjoying all of the neutrals and pastels that are big for spring. Especially this particular shade of pink. It seems to be everywhere. I see so much of it just being outside with all of the trees in bloom. So when I saw this BCBG Max Azria skirt, the decision was simple. Plus it had pockets. Made of silk, it is very sheer making it a little challenging when choosing how I’d wear it. So I ended up wearing a black mini skirt under it just so it wouldn’t be so see-through. I paired it with this striped top from Forever 21, belt from J.Crew, Andrea Brueckner bag and Cynthia Vincent sandals.

My mom took these photos while we were out in Chevy Chase last week. The original plan was to go there to check out the new Anthropologie accessories store that opened last October. They sell ONLY accessories. The amount of scarves, jewelry, handbags and shoes was pretty amazing. Apparently, there are only two stores currently open in the US. I wish I would have taken pics, but maybe next time!

But back to how we were only there to check out that store. Didn’t quite end up that way. The J.Crew there was huge and of course I had to go in. Adding another belt to my ridiculous collection. Got carried away in BCBG Max Azria and also left with a Rebecca Minkoff clutch from Bloomingdale’s. Did way too much damage, but enjoyed spending the time with my mom. I’ll post photos of my purchases soon.

This photo I took myself. It’s actually where I got the idea to title this post Petal Pink. Loving this soft pink color!

Pretty In Pink

With Valentine’s Day being less than a week away, I’ve pulled some items, all in the color pink, to help vamp up your V-day attire. While I hope no one will be wearing pink from head-to-toe, try using one of these items as a pop of color to an existing outfit.

*Dress by Twelfth Street by Cynthia Vincent (
There are sooo many ways this can be worn. Try it with a black blazer and black tights, a cropped cardi or belted with a boyfriend cardi, a feminine leather bomber and pumps, or just as it is with great sandals.

*Mulberry Alexa Clutch (
Definitely wear this with solid colors, no prints! You don’t want to over-do it. You want the clutch to be your stand-out piece.

*Elizabeth & James Mason Pump (
These are too cute to be covered up! Pair them with skinny jeans, a skirt or a dress. I would love them with a pair of skinny jeans, a flowy silk printed top and a neutral (cream or maybe white) blazer. Ugh, perfection!

*Tory Burch Reva Croc Ballet Flats (
Flats are easy to dress down but still be stylish in. Wear them with a flare-style jean.

*Essie in Bachelorette Bash (
I’ve just gotten into Essie nail colors. I wore one of the new spring colors, Van D’Go, to Miami when I went. Loved it. I’ve been looking for Mint Candy Apple. Can’t find it anywhere!

*Beribboned Buds Cardigan (
Try this cardi with a full mini skirt or even a pencil skirt.

*Stella McCartney Ines Bra and Briefs (
I think you guys know what to do with this one (wink wink!).
