Mint Tweed

mint tweed

As far as outfits go, this is a pretty simple ensemble for me. No rainbow-hued blast of color or riot of patterns or loading of statement necklaces this go-around. It's kind of nice to be able to streamline a bit as temps rise and the last thing we feel like doing is piling stuff on. Just wait until it's July and all I'll be doing is throw on a cotton knit dress, the barest of sandals and calling it a day.

A Rosy Metallic

soft hues

These shoes are my first piece of rose gold-hued anything, and while I think they are a fabulous softer metallic that is very flattering, I don't have a whole lot of ideas on what I can wear with them.

Pairing rose gold with other pale pinks is about all I can think of for now, and the weirdo in me can't settle with the idea of pairing rose gold with regular yellow gold - I know most people likely wouldn't notice at all ... but notice the lack of my usual gold-tone arm bling with this outfit?

You stylish ladies have any ideas on what you think would look good with rose gold? Right now my best idea is getting a purse in a sim metallic hue to help put my OCD matchy-match mind at rest.

Bows on my Toes

neon + grey

I've got some major love for pretty much every piece I'm wearing. So they all had to work together somehow, don't they?

Like this top: a substantial knit that is neutral but different enough from a regular ole striped or grey tee.

Or this skirt: it's neon yellow, people. 'Nough said.

The necklace: One of my fave J.Crew purchases. Sparkle just made to wear with grey.

And the shoes: Yeah, I'm pretty much never taking these shoes off. They're striped, got bows and they're padded to the hilt, so they're actually comfortable. Isaac Mizrahi, you make it difficult to resist snagging another pair (like the pink ones, ooh pretty).

Easy Trompe L'oeil

trompe l'oeil

The buttons are real but pretty much everything else on this top has been sketched on. And for some weird reason, that makes me adore this top to no end.

So thanks to my big sis for getting this top for me from one of Joe Fresh's US stores since they are all currently located in NYC or Long Island and Joe Fresh doesn't offer online US shopping yet (boo and boo).

I've checked out some of Joe Fresh's offerings via JCPenney but I think they save the cutest stuff for their own site. Come on, Canada, when are you guys going to share this fab retailer?
