My Happy Place

Today has been one of those days where I need happy thoughts of something frivolously fun to help take my mind off real life. Drooling over a killer handbag is just what the doctor ordered methinks. Now, if budget weren't an option a vintage Chanel would be my choice, but this Latico beauty is awfully fabulous too! It's a steal at well under $100, which makes it totally BonBon Deal of the Day worthy. It comes in a slew of colors, but I think the metallic olive has my number! So, what do you think lovelies? Are...

Tweed Jackets: A Closet Staple

I thought that I was finished with my fall must haves list, until I realized that I left off one very important item. The tweed jacket definitely deserves a spot on said list. Any Chanel worshiper will tell you that no wardrobe is complete without this classic piece! After seeing North on Harper's coverage of Chanel's spring 2012 collection, I once again wanted to insert pearls into my look and what better thing to pair pearls with this fall than a tweed jacket? I kind of loved the unexpected ways that pearls were styled on Chanel's...

Hot Handbag: The Hobo

I just love the ease and functionality of a good hobo bag. While structured, ladylike bags  are lovely, in my day to day life, a hobo or tote is usually the bag I turn to. Seeing as it's nearly spring and vibrant colors are everywhere, I'm ready to give my traditional brown hobo a break in favor of a fun color. Such a bag can be found at numerous price points in every color of the rainbow. I'm particularly loving the cerulean blue Big Buddha number...

Visions of Spring

Sadly, the dude had a gnarly cold last week and mama didn't escape its wrath. I'm out for the count and not feeling like doing anything much but lie on the couch. Ugh. As I lie here with my laptop and wait for the hubs to bring me my juice, all I can think about is getting outside and enjoying the beautiful spring weather that Florida is throwing at us right now. It's supposed to be 80 degrees here today! Can you believe that? It is officially time for me to start getting my spring wardrobe...

Take a Break From Color

Don't forget to enter our $150 American Express gift card and KM2 Shoes giveaways! As excited as I am to bust out the bright colors this spring, I'm equally as psyched about sporting easy, breezy neutrals! Pajama dressing, as you've probably seen it called, was all over the spring runways. Think comfortable, fluid styles in ethereal hues. Look to the collections of Michael Kors, Ralph Lauren and Alexander Wang for beautiful examples of this look! My favorite online shopping haunt, Shopbop, also has some fabulous pieces that will help get you inspired to rock this look...

Accessories Report: Rough-Hewn

As I perused the front page of Etsy today something caught my eye. This beautifully bold cuff is so interesting, yet so pretty. I just had to see what else the shop that was behind it had to offer. Astral Eye did not disappoint. In addition to the arm candy, I found some other little prettties that made my heart go pitter patter! These pieces  are fun, funky and fabulously affordable! They would be perfect for adding a little edge to an overtly feminine look or to simply add some interest to a plain and tee and...

Red: Not Just for the Holidays

The dude is being featured over at Cool Kids today! Come check out my little man's post! Even though the holidays have come and gone, there's no reason to put away the red in your wardrobe. Valentine's  Day is headed our way after all. And before we know it spring will be here. I plan on sportin' this vibrant hue straight on into the warm weather months! But for now it's heart day that's on my mind. I'm all for a day dedicated to romance. Especially since the hubs and I are both crazy busy these days....

Take a Fashion Cue from Jessica Alba

Don't forget to enter our giveaway to win two sets of lovely personalized stationery! The biker chic look is one I've been wanting to work into my wardrobe for a while now. Seeing Burberry Prorsum's Spring 2011 collection last fall really  solidified that for me. Model after model saunteered down the runway in the most gorgeous biker inspired jackets. Now I feel like all you lovelies who said the other day that jumpsuits could work on other people just not you. I love the biker jacket in theory. This white French Connection number almost makes  me...
