Summer Wedding Palette

I was thinking about summer and my take on an ideal color palette for a summer wedding!  Although Greenery was announced as the Pantone Color of the Year, I prefer a lighter and brighter shade of green, Kelly Green.  Perfect to pair with other light and bright colors such as cream, rose, and gold, this shade is perfectly accented by darker shades such as imperial blue and aubergine.

The Best of Chuck & Blair

Blair Waldorf & Chuck Bass, monarchs of the Upper East Side, in the much loved and remembered show Gossip Girl thrilled and wowed us for five years with their fashion sense. From the halls of Constance Billard and St. Jude to the streets of Paris they demonstrated the way to be the best dressed and most talked about persons in a room. So here’s to Blair Cordelia Waldorf and Charles Bartholomew Bass and their epic wardrobes, long may they reign in our hearts and memories!

Middleburg Hunt Point to Point

A few years ago, a dear friend of mine invited me down to hunt country in Middleburg, VA for the annual spring race and of course, I was hooked.  A sunny day for pretty dresses, hats, socializing while sipping on Veuve Clicquot, and watching beautiful horses and their riders speed across a race course, I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a weekend. Since that first year, I’ve tried to make each outfit better than the last. This year I had two dresses as options thanks to the new collaboration between Victoria Beckham and Target–you can find the full line here. Unable to decide between the two, I put them on Instagram and asked my followers to choose!

The likes came rolling in and the next morning, it was decided–I was to wear the black and white seventies number.

Dress: Victoria Beckham for Target | Fascinator: August Hat Company | Watch: Olivia Burton | Shades: Unique Vintage

Although pink is a much loved color for spring, I found this ensemble to be much more to my liking and taste as it was memorable and allowed me to perfectly pair it with a black netted fascinator, over the top cat-eyes shades, and a perfect red lip!

Spring NYBFW 2017

Everything is popping up with bows!

And I couldn’t be more excited.  Trends will go as fast as they come, but I’m determined to ride this wave out till the newest fad reaches our shores.  I’d like to take a moment to thank the universe that flower crowns seem to have found their exit, I never caught on to the flower child idea.  The bridal spring designs for 2018 brought us many things that French and elegant fashions have praised for years.  From skirts resembling that of the much beloved Grace Kelly’s own bridal gown to silhouettes that bring to mind Audrey Hepburn in all of her forms, with sprinkles of bows, pearls, and black velvet in between, here are just some of the gorgeous gowns to grace the catwalks this year!
