Shopbop//Spring Favorites

Shopbop is always a go-to for me. If I'm looking to add a few new pieces to my wardrobe, it's one of the first places I go. Such an easy site to search with so many options. These are a few on my favorites for spring. So many cute things!!!

I do love bright colored clothes, but as far as shoes and bags go I'm loving these neutrals.

Neon Accents

I am loving all the bright neon colors for spring! Wearing a neon accent can really brighten my mood and make my outfit much more fun. Be careful mixing and matching too many neon accents together, as you do not want to look like you just came from a rave. Pairing a great neon accent with nudes and naturals are just perfect and super chic!










1. ASOS neon belt


2. My fav blouse- the Blythe Blouse from J Crew


3. Bfrend bracelets (all are handmade and there are lots of neon options!)


4. My inspiration! Bobbi's Neons and Nudes Collection


5. We love Blair from Atlantic Pacific's style!


6. Tinley Road Beaded Neck Top in Neon Yellow




8. ASOS Neon Trimmed Tweed Suit


9. Loeffler Randall Fawn Sporty Flat Sandal


10. Seven for all Mankind The Skinny Jeans




12. How fun is Bloomingdale's take on neons for their little brown bag?

Welcome Home

Nothing perks up a front entry better than a cute doormat. With warmer weather here this week, it has me in the mood to do some sprucing up around the house. The first one from West Elm is my favorite!

Frank Pollaro goes to the Oscars

Who is already thinking about the upcoming Oscar's this Sunday, February 26th? Many of us I know tune in to see the oh-so-fabulous gowns or lack there of. But, this year not only am I scouting out the great fashion, but my eyes will be focused on this year's Greenroom. Oh the Greenroom, where celebrities retreat before taking the stage to present the heavy man himself.... Mr. Academy. This year's celebrity sanctuary will be furnished by the very, very talented Frank Pollaro. Owner and designer of Pollaro Handmade Furniture his custom made pieces utilize and incorporate the worlds most rare and impeccable materials. When I think of Mr. Pollaro's furniture, one word comes to mind EXQUISITE - really no other. I have had the great experience of working with he and his company on a job site a couple of years ago. In person, the pieces are even more stunning than the images- I didn't even think possible. Along with Pollaro's furniture this year at the Oscars, design for the Greenroom will be created by acclaimed Los Angeles designer Waldo Fernandez. How glamorous it will be, as his designs are influenced by the 1930s and 40s hollywood era. Below are four of the eleven pieces from Pollaro's collection which will be used at this year's 84th annual Academy Awards.
Ruhlmann Club Chairin Macassar Ebony
Ruhlmann Coffre D’Orin 23k Gold and Ebony
Lafon Console inBronze and Goat Skin
Rateau Impala Lampin Bronze and Alabaster
I encourage you to check out all the other amazing designs at Pollaro's website. http://www.pollaro.com/main.php

Wing Chair Love

Whether you love them or hate them, wing back chairs have been around for a while and are here to stay. That's not to say they haven't evolved over time, because they have. These days, wing chairs are used in many rooms throughout the house and even in offices. The wing chair is timeless, classic and very comfortable. Don't get me wrong, there are some ugly outdated ones out there (I have a pair in hunter green waiting to be recovered now.) Just don't forget, they can always be refreshed with new fabric, paint, or even by adding nail heads.
