Metallics

March 22, 2015

There is never a case when I can walk into a Barnes & Noble and pass the magazine section without stopping. Last weekend, husband, baby and I stopped there for coffee and before you know it, I was paging through the latest issue of Domino. This was certainly a fitting title – though we’re not quite ready for a move, buying a home has been on our minds lately.

While I was flipping through, this spread caught my eye — gorgeous florals housed in sleek metallic vases. I can get with this trend…….

The ones pictured above are by Sebastian Herkner (available here). They’re pricey, though, so I’ve got my eye on these other options:

I’ve been doing SEVERAL double takes in Banana Republic’s direction ever since the mega stylish Marissa Webb (former Head of Women’s Design for J. Crew) took over as creative director. Thanks to Webb, Banana’s look has received a majorly chic upgrade. Her latest is a baby collection. Yes, A BABY COLLECTION. I know, I love it too. Dubbed Banana Republic Mini, the collection features pieces in gender neutral colors and comfy fabrics like cashmere, terrycloth and cotton. They range in price from $24 to $198. Look out – Baby M is about to be the most stylish kid on the block! The limited edition collection is available now. Here you go.

Spring Uniform

February 28, 2015

www.theprettydish.comI’m determined to significantly pare down my wardrobe. I currently have my clothes split between three closets and stored in several plastic containers. Because a baby brings so much “stuff,” our apartment is on overload. I surveyed the items hanging in my closet only to realize that I rarely wear MOST of my clothes. Now I’m all about picking out and keeping key pieces, never buying just to buy and investing in quality items that will last for years to come.

Now – for spring, I’m eyeing the pieces pictured here. White on white looks so crisp and is so easy to pull off. A pastel pump will be my new neutral. A tailored trench can easy elevate any outfit. I’m so ready to say goodbye to winter!!

This is just a post to say that Naomi STUNNED on the runway this week, closing the Zac Posen show. In case you’re out of the loop, New York Fashion Week just wrapped. There was lots to see on runways and in presentations across the city, but this look is just magical. She’s truly giving me a modern Glinda the Good Witch. All hail Queen Naomi!

Lotion Love

Hi guys, yep – still here. Still adjusting to the whole new mom thing, so forgive my absence. I’ll find balance one day! In the meantime, my little guy is growing so fast (pics here). He will be six months old on Valentine’s Day. Such a fitting day for him to be celebrating his half birthday – my heart is so full of love for baby boy!

Ahhhh, back to business. A friend bought me this amazingly rich body cream and I have to tell you about it. It’s part of Origins’ ‘Ginger’ line of products. It definitely smells like ginger, but there are also notes of bergamot, lemon and lime. The formula is so fluffy – it’s a treat to use.

I actually love the entire line, having tried many of the products. The body scrub and the bubble bath are two other favorites, they’re both so decadent.
