Pinking Of You

pinking-of-you-brown-paper-doll

With warmer days on the horizon, I’m celebrating by rounding up some of my favorite items in one of Spring’s prettiest shades…pink of course! I feel like I’ve found a new appreciation for the color with my newborn daughter. I woke up one day and everything surrounding me was pink. While the color can be flirty and feminine, it doesn’t always have to be overly sweet. Here are my stylish picks that have me tickled pink this month! 

Aje Dress: A modern take on a Bridgerton-inspired look. The precious pink color and statement sleeves are balanced by an edgy cutout at the waist. I might have to get this one for upcoming family photos!

Tod’s Loafers: The comfiest driving loafers in buttery leather. I own these in orange, but the pink is too pretty to pass up!

ASOS Flats: Satin Flats with a sparkly bow will bring out the inner ballerina in all of us! 

Tom Ford Rose Prick: A floral scent with a little bit of a spicy kick. On top of the beautiful scent, I also love the matte pink bottle! 

Sunday Riley Pink Drink: A refreshing and firming treat for your skin. Spray after cleansing and before your serums and moisturizer. 

Alison Lou Pink Sapphire Ring: I love the pink sapphire framed by light pink enamel. You can wear this as a stacker, or on its own for a dainty and feminine look. 

Molton Brown Pink Pepper Bodywash: My go-to shower gel scent. It’s divine!

Has anyone else been influenced by Bridgerton fashion? I’m talking pretty dresses, dainty jewelry, and lots of pastel and sparkle! I can’t get enough! And when I saw this gorgeous Zimmermann sundress on sale, I knew I had to have this feminine piece in my wardrobe. I love the light linen material, button details all the way down the front, and the removable straps for extra versatility. The pastel color scheme and climbing floral print along the hem also add an extra sweetness that makes this dress perfect for Spring. I’ll wear this with a cardigan for these transitional months and can’t wait to wear it strapless over the summer.

For its first wear during a weekend getaway, I opted for jeweled heels to add a little something special for date night.  All I’m missing now are some more warm days for another chance to wear it!

Dress: Zimmermann. Shoes: Manolo Blahnik.

Lust List

Major Mules

Major Mules

Mules are quite possibly my favorite style of shoe. The ease of slipping them on can’t be beat! And while I love my Gucci slip-on flats, the heeled mules are really where this style shines. The ease combined with the polish of a heel can make any casual outfit infinitely more stylish. Take a look below for the heeled mules that have my heart!

1. Manolo Blahnik Maysale MulesOne of the classic Manolo silhouettes that can be dressed up or down. I love the variety of colors, but powder blue is my favorite at the moment.

2. Christian Louboutin Just Nothing: A barely-there mule with an iconic red sole.

3. Gianvito Bow Mules: Super sleek with a flirty satin bow detail. I’d love these with light jeans and a crisp white shirt.

4. Dior Fabric Mules: An easy way to add a splashy designer name to your look!

5. By Far Suede Mules: Simple and classic. I love the tan suede that will pair perfectly with every sundress for Spring and Summer.
