girl gone wild

…with colors! (is it M.D.N.A or Madonna?).  Don’t know anymore, but I do know that color blocking has been one of the funnest trends to try.  A week back, Derek (http://fromshoestospecs.blogspot.com) and I embarked on a photo-shoot with Colin, a super talented student with mad camera skills.

I went for a bold approach (obviously) and I loved the end result.  I kept it casual by adding the trusted jean jacket, a serious wardrobe staple.  Color blocking is one of the trickiest trends to pull off because it has to be cohesive.  Try combining soft colors within the same color wheel first, for example mint with navy, then progress into diva territory.  Go for yellow and purple, orange and pink- be fun and fearless!

With the heat creeping up on us rather steadily, I suggest the outfits below for a summer friendly version.

Wishlist Wednesday

Wishlist Wednesday
As I’ve said before, this new year I want to save my money but splurge when necessary.  All the items shown are things that I will undoubtedly wear for years to come.  A new pair of sunnies will be much appreciated, and those Ray-Ban aviators are a classic, the same can be said for the black j.crew ballet flats.  I have been wearing my gold target watch out, poor thing…I wear every day!  The rose gold face Fossil watch is modern and suiting for my wardrobe.  Lastly, the Kate Spade bangle has been on my lust list forever!  It would be great for mixing metals.
What are your most coveted items?
