Pink

My love affair with the color pink started when I had my twin girls.  For some reason, blush pink looked really adorbs in a little girl’s room.  Before I realized it, blush hues had made an appearance in my home décor.  And, now, pink has permeated the fashion scene in a major way and clearly found its way into my closet! This little pink number is from HM—which by the way has been knocking it out of the park lately.  Am I right or am I right? Do you remember the Balmain collaboration?  I was five months pregnant when the collection dropped, and it led me to do something I had never done before…  I shamelessly camped out for it. Totally a spontaneous decision, for which you can blame my sister.  She called me at…

Pearls Are Back

Pearls are back, and not just for ladies who lunch.  All year long we have seen jeans, blouses, sandals, hats — you name it — encrusted with pearls.  Not complaining about this trend at all because pearls do have a way of instantly turning a basic item to wow.  What’s even better about this trend is pearls are timeless.  They’ll always be in, and Chanel has made sure of that.  Now this jumpsuit, pearl embellished and all, is the mother of all jumpsuits.  And, since it made its premiere on my Instagram, I have been getting one inquiry after another about it.  Rachel Zoe, you should totally sponsor me. Wink wink. I fell in love with it as much as you did when I saw it last year.  Yep, I bought this baby in…

Power Suits

If you love a woman in a suit, throw your hands up.  Because we are about to discuss one of this season’s most popular trends: suits.  Except that it’s not a trend.  Suits are timeless.  You can never go wrong with a suit whether it is circa 1960’s or present-day 2017. Boss lady status is no longer a title reserved for the corporate exec types. Women from all walks of life are breaking all kinds of fancy glass ceilings and doing so in style and in suits.  New York and Paris Fashion Week runways were suited up in all shapes, sizes and colors.  Designers took your classic trusted suit and put a circa 2017 spin on it, with padded shoulders, oversizing, bright and muted colors, bold prints and stripes, and so on.  This not-so-trend trend…

That Time We Ran for the Hills

The Mr and I celebrated our nine year anniversary a few months ago.  This year, unlike some previous years where we would venture off to the likes of Italy or Cancun, we decided to stay local.  We booked a weekend getaway to Goodstone Inn, and I cannot tell you how memorable an experience it was. People ask me all the time, how do you manage three little ones, a full time career (which is not blogging, so add that to my list), your marriage, and yet you look sane.  The key word is looking, folks.  In all honesty, we manage this beautiful chaos by supporting each other.  If it were not for my support system, which includes a lot of people, I would be drowning.  When you hear people say it takes a village…

Red is the New Black

Red is the new black.  Or maybe red is the new neutral.  Whatever your take is on this critical global development, red is the new it color.  You heard it here first, folks.  Well, not really.  Fashion industry experts have been calling it since the spring.  I mean everyone at the 2017 Met Gala was wearing red. I am going to pepper some politics into this fashion post.  Bear with me.  Red was associated with A Day Without A Woman movement.  Remember that, circa March 2017.  The movement called on women to wear red and protest against gender inequality for a day.  Social media and Instagram feeds were dripping in red.  Activists sporting red ensembles were marching on the streets of metropolitan U.S. cities.. actually, it was a global movement.  According to the group,…
