I spoke about the trend of matching makeup to clothes, now matching nail polish to your shoes is also becoming popular. When I was in high school we changed our polish every night to match our outfits, but never a pedicure! Seems a little time consuming, but beautiful non the less.
Do you do this, I may start now … cause I’m really liking it!
Happy Saturday and I hope your days are more exciting than ever right now. I have a fun new contest next week, can’t wait to share it with you!
Thanks for reading and commenting….you guys are the best! XoX

For beauty and design I recommend all of them, but my favorite and most helpful book is Nina’s.
The One Hundred, written by Nina Garcia, fashion director at Elle magazine, is designed to help women build a classic wardrobe and avoid being caught up in fads. It contains the 100 items that Nina believes will never go out of style. Not only does she list these items but explains why each item has stood the test of time., looking at the history behind such items as the white shirt, the gold link watch, and a pair of classic black slacks.
Decorating never ends with the furniture, it’s the little things in life that make a difference!

Daydreaming or day-tripping? Always a dreamer, or so I’ve been accuse of. Gorgeous pictures to get lost in and have a little dream yourself! Of late I’ve often thought of a seaside cottage where I can write, blog and tweet. Three of my favorite things. The dress in the first picture is what I would wear while sipping cappuccino endlessly in a hammock while reading a juicy book to get lost in.
Happy Wednesday Luvs….
P.S. A super fun announcement coming up on my blog in the next couple of days, can’t wait to share! Let’s just say it’s includes shiney sparkly things and a giveaway… a BIG giveaway!

Blair from Atlantic Pacific blog shows how great Missoni can look! Fabulous!!!
Another look at Missoni’s elegance
Never ever do this!
With so much chitter chatter in the last week about Missoni’s new Target line, I felt I had to put in my two cents. If you have followed my blog for awhile now you KNOW it’s all about the glamour! Like yesterday’s post, Ralph Lauren’s S/S 2012 collection, it’s all about ME. If I were fortunate enough to be a designer, my line would be quite similar.
OK, so back to Missoni. WTH is what I think. Honestly only a slight resemblance to the originals. And the resemblance is not flattering. I’m over it, soooo over it. And the more I see it, the more I dislike it!
Case in point in the pictures above, Blair from Atlantic-Pacific blog shows how fabulous Missoni can look when you accessorize it properly. Missoni has so much glamour and sophistication in their styles. And by parterning with Target, they LOST it all.
The lesson to take away from this is, “less expensive isn’t always better.” Save up or create your own based on an inspiration of your favorite designer. Case in point, I am not running out to buy this Ralph Lauren style anytime soon (pictured below,) trust me! But I will be buying a beautifully crafted white elegant sweater and pairing it with this year’s must have wide pants, entirely white of course and accessorizing with silver.
Be inspired everyday!

Ralph Lauren Invokes 1920′s Glamour!
The designs consist of flowy crepe de chine trousers with effortless styling. Crisp white and pale pink dresses and suits flanked ostrich feather ornamented frocks all suitable for chic spring dressing.
White on white flowing effortlessly is my absolute favorite. I would pair it with the pink silk tie. Speaking of the pink tie, hard to find a picture of it. I did see it when I watched the runway show and have been obsessed with it ever since.
Lauren throws in a biker’s jacket in dusty pink leather – rendering it utterly feminine, so that a 65-year-old sophisticate could swing it without looking tawdry!
I am taking so many inspirations from his line, especially the wide leg silk pants paired with the white sweater. Absolute PERFECTION

My number one choice from this year’s Marchesa Spring 2012 is this magical dress. Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig designs are what dreams are made of! The exquisite tulleing and details, albeit seen before, never disappoint.
I get lost in the designs. I can picture one of these gowns making it’s residence in the corner of my room on a lovely graceful stand, behind glass of course.
One day I hope to own my very own Marchesa gown and meet the fabulous Georgina Chapman!

Luxurious linens and breakfast in bed, after fun filled weekends is the best. Just enough time to reflect of moments spent with family and friends you cherish.
With our lives so busy these days, I feel it is important to take the time for ourselves. Even if it’s only for an hour, just enough to secure your thoughts and compose your future dreams. One of my favorite times of the day is when the lights go off and all is still and silent. I usually have a candle burning on my bedside table and my drapes open to gaze at the stars. The peacefulness of a candlelit room, the flicker of the flame against darkness is so soothing.
It’s now time to blow this candle out.

So what do you think of this Chic look, I think Jennie Garth pulls it off perfectly. And for those days when your hair is having a mind of it’s own, it could be just what you need. My two favorites are Jennie’s and Maria’s, the first and last picture. For me I need a little height on top otherwise I just feel like I didn’t do my hair!
Are you going to experiment with this so called new style? And how perfect would these looks be for SUMMER.
Whether you dress the LOOK up or dress it down, find your own style of braid which looks best on you and give it a try!
