perfect popover…

Screen Shot 2013-05-13 at 10.42.53 AM

It is unlikely that I will buy this jcrew collection popover because there is about a 4-6 week window where the weather allows for it (think early fall and spring) and I simply cannot rationalize spending the $400 for something with such little wearability.  It will either be too cold or too hot and this piece is just too pretty to spend the majority of its lifespan tucked away in my closet!  And let’s be real, it is certainly pricey for a top.  BUT….I am fawning over it – it’s my version of design perfection.  Super stylish, comfortable, can be worn with anything and provides a boho and ethnic sensibility (which lends itself to my personal style).   Let’s play dress up anyway – sometimes we don’t need to spend a lot of money to take something beautiful, be inspired by it and create our own iteration.  I know that’s my plan!  xx #yoursoulstyle

hello, yellow

Louis-Vuitton-Spring-2013
Yellow is hitting it hard this season as demonstrated in the Louis Vuitton Spring 2013 runway show.  I have never been a mega fan of the color however while perusing the interweb I found some goodies that have convinced me otherwise.  It’s definitely a tough shade for us fair skin girls but throw on a red lip for pop of color and I think it may do the trick.  Or you can just go with yellow accessories.  A few items on the radar…

I’m a little late to the party when it comes to this Phillip Lim, “I Love Nueva York” tee since it was all over the street during Fall NYFW.   However in lieu of the upcoming DOMA and Prop 8 ruling by the Supreme Court this week  – I’m feeling extra thankful and lucky to be living in a state where my marriage is already recognized.  I am so proud to be a New Yorker and am hoping that the rights that I’ve come to know are extended to all and then some.

Sending tons of love, luck and support to all standing on the front line in Washington!
