I just got the May 2012 Anthropologie catalog and let me say, I swooned. Big hair, reddish lips, soft fabrics, sun-kissed cheeks.
These are some of my favorite looks for shade and sun.
The weather is changing, the sun is out, flowers are popping up on every corner, and my Passport is asking to be used. It is saying, throw me in a bag with a flowing dress, some bejeweled sandals, radiant sunglasses, and lets find some far off land, where spices are sold in burlap sacks, the food is hot and the people are beautiful.

I pulled together these pieces that are all different but tied together but the vibrancy of the colors, the boldness of the print and the ease of wear.

Bottom, from L to R: FALIERO SARTI Ios Sand/Multicolor Pompom Scarf at StyleBop, Alligator skin-print jersey dress by Tibi at Outnet, Alba Mini Skirt at AllSaint Spitalfields, Dollhouse Alfa Slingback Sandal at Endless, Knot intrecciato snakeskin clutch by Bottega Veneta at Net A Porter, Melbourne Sunglasses by Lacoste, Rainbow Ring by Citrine by the Stones at Charm and Chain
The trick for going big with color, prints and patterns is to not be afraid. Find a silhouette you typically gravitate towards, a slim pant, a waist cinching wrap dress, a pencil dress and go bold. Step away from the gray and black and add yellow, oranges, limes, cerulean, ruby.
I love the idea of making a splash in a bold and beautiful way, that’s as wild as it is sophisticated.

I love flowers; the way they brighten up a room, they way they smell, what they symbolize. But, flowers die. Ouch, so that was a rough point. But just because they do doesn’t mean we can’t find inspiration in flowers everyday.
Today’s fashion proves that roses are red, and black, and beige.
There are high fashion options from Valentino and Milly what is not to love about this?
Okay, head in the clouds and empty wallets, where else can we find rose inspiration?
How about taking the roses home?
Come on you didn’t think we wouldn’t have a rose inspired baking tool?
Or go for the original, the real thing:
Wishing you a house full of roses, whether you get them as a gift, or buy them for yourself. They are a happy, and delightful treat for anyday, Valentine’s or otherwise!

>My niece Isabella loves the “gummies.” They could be jelly beans, gumdrops, worms of any kind, but she likes them sweet and she likes them colorful, and who could really blame her?
If you’re not five years old, or if you’re desire for style matches your need for sugar this might hit the spot.
I am loving the sweet and really playful nature of this necklace and it’s “wear anywhere, with anything sensibility.” It’s all the delicious fun without the cavities!
