marigold moment

this weekend a dear friend and avid CP supporter texted me a picture of herself in this hot little jumpsuit, headed out on the town (and looking fabbbb). words can’t explain how much it meant to me– I thought my heart was going to burst. I couldn’t believe there is not only someone willing to read my jumble of thoughts and ideas on the internet, but also someone who wants to buy (and wear) them!!!??! Little encouragements like this are the reason I keep blogging. ❤️ you all, chicas. 

now on to today’s main event– 

mustard, marigold and dandelion yellow are all having a major moment this fall. while the bright color might scare you, it’s actually quite versatile– perfect paired with denim, navy, black or brown. It provides a little pop of excitement and is rich enough to be muted into some very sophisticated looks. Scroll to shop my current finds featuring the hue…

move over chanel granny pumps, there’s a new it girl in town…

meet the dior slingback, 2017’s latest street style darling. true life, i had to physically pull myself away from these at Selfridge’s a few weeks ago. it’s no wonder this shoe is taking over– a twist on the ever classic pointy toe black flat– made insta ready with graphic j’adore printed elastic. it was a tragic separation, i loved these shoes and i’m pretty sure they loved me back (and wanted to come live their best life in new york). they look good with everything from skinny jeans for a gals lunch date, to a pleated skirt and button down for the office, and i can even see some uber chic girl style them with a frilly tulle maxi dress, the perfect ballerina chic kind of look. in my dream scenario (where there’s a pair in my closet), I’d go for a date night look, paired with….

1- dior j’adore flats

2- cashmere trench coat

3- structural bucket bag

4- lip pigment

5- dark skinny jeans

6- lace top (on sale!)

7- pearl choker

8- chance perfume

drop in the bucket

the ‘it’ bags for spring are shaping up nicely (lol, i crack myself up). while many of you are probably sick of me still yammering on about bucket bags, since they’ve been hot for several seasons, leave it to fashion to re-invent an old favorite. meet the bucket bag 2.0. – cleaner, smaller, more structured and many resembling an actual bucket. while the simon miller ring bag below is a hit with all the street style stars, its tiny open shape is perhaps not the most practical for shlepping your everyday essentials around. but practicality be dammed. it’s springy and cute, like carrying around a little pot of flowers. check out the looks and my favorite bag picks below….

Target unveiled a new line of Who What Wear footwear and I was seriously impressed. while these puppies are still in the mail, so I can’t comment on the quality, the thin straps are very reminiscent of a popular Valentino pair. they’re the perfect ladylike counterbalance to a pair of baggy boyfriend jeans and a cozy scarf.
