Color Crush: Grey

image

Maybe it was yesterday’s dreary weather and subsequent snowfall, but I’m aching for a more subdued color palette. Fortunately, grey doesn’t have to be boring. Pretty prints, luxe textures and icy shimmer make the hue a winter must have.

Forget the stodgy crystal glassware. Summer soirees are going to be a lot more fun with this colorful set of tumblers courtesy of Buyer At Large.

Buyer At Large is an online boutique brimming with unique gifts for women. While there are plenty of jewelry and personal care gifts, my favorites are the kitchen and dining options. How cute are these cheese plates? Pair those with a slate cheese board and you have the perfect hostess gift. And, do you remember those heart-shaped teacups that made the rounds on Pinterest? Yep, they have those too.

Color Crush: Oxblood

This color has gotten a bad rap for unappealing names like burgundy and (shudder) maroon. But it’s time to shake the stigma and embrace oxblood, a richly saturated hue that’s flattering on most complexions. If the color feels too serious for you, pair it with an unexpected jolt of hot pink.

Shop It: Vera Wang Lavender ankle boots // Topshop peplum top // Marc Jacobs pants // Leighelena bracelet // Stella McCartney sunglasses // Tory Burch gloves // Rebecca Minkoff bag // Le Metier de Beaute eyeshadow

It’s the Little Things

Play your cards right.

I caved and  went over my July budget to acquire this Astley Clarke ring. And you know what? It was totally worth it.

An ever-growing collection of coral: Kate Spade purse, Banana Republic Factory Store bracelet and Old Navy shorts.

Weekend Snapshots

Weekend Snapshots:

  1. A fallen leaf makes for a pretty color combo in the pool
  2. Sipping on a Singapore Sling - it’s time for classic cocktails to make a comeback
  3. A waxy bottle cap from New Glarus’ Wisconsin Belgian Red - there’s over a pound of cherries in each bottle and I’m sure it would make an excellent float with vanilla ice cream
  4. We went to see Ted on Friday night. It wasn’t very good. If you watched the trailer, then you saw all of the funny scenes.
  5. Friday afternoon floating in the pool - we were the only two there for hours
