tie it up in a bow

I find my style and pins on Pinterest getting more and more feminine. Blame it on the impending arrival or pregnancy but for a self proclaimed "I'm not a pink girl" girl, I sure have ordered a lot of it lately {I can't stop wearing these pink scalloped flats and I ordered this and this monogrammed in pink}. 

When I was little, I don't I ever left the house without a bow in my hair and with my recent increased infatuation with anything girly, I have been found to have added this feminine touch. {What better use for an Hermes ribbon?} If you are channeling Blair Waldorf, I recommend this bow headband, or if you want a subtle touch, I just ordered this hair bow in black, blue and a color to match my hair. Blame it on the baby.

I can't stop thinking about this unconventional suit pairing first spotted on Atlantic-Pacific's instagram as seen on the Zimmermann runway from New York fashion week.  Just had to share.

mildly obsessed

I am mildly obsessed with this shoe. Party appropriate and ladylike, I truly don't think that I can get through the rest of the year's festivities without it. Now, the real question: dusty pink or navy???

blush ballet

I can't get enough of this photo: light distressed denim and the ultra feminine blush ballet flats, absolute perfection. Even more perfect? The price: $49.  

I also found these {for $19} that make me want to go buy a tutu.

nyfw inspiration: keeping it classic

Jason Wu Spring 2015 look created with the below

Carolina Herrera look created with Girl About Town lipstick

Thank goodness for spring 2015!  Jason Wu and Wes Gordon kept it simple with low ponytails, while Carolina Herrera's models had perfectly punctuate pouts and the classic white button down has been spotted on a majority of the runways. 2015 will be all about keeping it classic.

light blue

I am loving these light blue voluminous curtain options {makes me think of this dress}. We have a very similar look in our master with a more neutral palette. These photos make me want to either take a nap or throw on that fab dress and have a cocktail party!

I used to live in New York City.

I worked in PR and loved fashion week for the long hours of exciting work: seating charts, press lines and making sure the right press got the best backstage experience. One particular memory was the Peter Som show: someone with a coveted front row seat didn't show up and being in PR, we wanted every seat to look full. Therefore I was tasked with sitting in said seat, which happened to be right across from Anna Wintour. I think I spent more time watching her than the fabulous clothing. 

This year, I may have the best excuse not to be at New York Fashion week (baby on the way!), but I can still have fun thinking about what I would pack and wear. Below are three looks that I currently am coveting and think would be perfect for this fun time in the city.

fashion week look #1

Faux leather leggings {$100!} and the perfect cape blazer {$68} paired with a messy bob and a red pout make for a clean yet pulled together look that can easily go from day to night and all the shows in between. 

fashion week look #2

I would rely on my comfy Topshop maternity leggings and the a classic white button down to look pulled together but comfy. And punctuated with a soft curled pony the Rockstud flats I have been debating and eyeing for over a year would make anyone feel chic. {Can't decide between this pair and this pair}.

pink, navy & pearls

To feel like a lady, this dress with a dropped waist and forgiving silhouette would be great for any NYFW event. Topped off with pearls doesn't get much better!

{I literally cannot brag about this dress enough! Great for bump and non bumps and so feminine and equally comfortable.}

gray and white stripes

{ Hatch Perfect V neck tee // J.Crew white maternity denim // Pink Sandals, sold out, similar here and here // Yves Saint Laurent Roady Hobo // Ray-Ban Aviators // Bracelets, Hermes }

San Diego is holding on tight to summer, therefore I am still dressing the part.  When the weather begins to act appropriately, I can't wait to layer this cashmere over this outfit and switch out these hot pink sandals with my favorite gray suede loafers

skinny jeans and pumps

I miss my skinny jeans. Thank goodness for these topshop maternity skinny jeans that give me the look of a great pair of skinnies, but the feel of a legging. {I will be bummed when I can no longer wear them. so super soft!} The chic women above know the power of a classic outfit: great fitting denim and pulled together basics. Shop my similar selections below with my signature bonus: all under $100!

navy shoes

Have you heard about the InStyle Collaboration with NineWest? I love a great shoe that is trendy yet classic, comes in navy and is under $100. These navy Ninewest Navy Peep Toe pumps are 100% my favorites.

baby blue done right

When we first found out that we are having a little girl, after the initial excitement of our dreams coming true, the realization that the biggest blessings was that much more real and a mental inventory of all our friends' little boys that we were suddenly grew much more weary about, I though 'no pink'! As this initial resistance has subsided, I have loved looking for feminine ways to do blue. And what better demonstration of the most luxurious and feminine example of blue done right than the Shangri La Hotel in Paris. Too beautiful not to share.
