BIKINIS, ZUCCHINIS, MARTINIS

I can't believe July is almost over! At this time of year I always ponder: where exactly did our summer go? Between working full-time and preparations for NYC, I haven't taken the time to just relax. Today I had the chance to sit poolside and enjoy the beautiful sun. I don't want summer to end, but knowing shopping for a fall wardrobe is just around the corner brings both solace and excitement!

P.S: I made a new blog header! Thoughts?

I LOVE CREW

I love the J. Crew Fall 2010 collection and found this pic from their fall campaign particularly inspiring. I've already exhausted the pink lipstick, but this babe is seriously making me want to go platinum (even though I vowed I'd NEVER go there again. Disaster?). Moreover, it's the styling I love. Who can make that many pins and brooches look so effortless? I'm up to the test. I need a serious thrifting and vintage date in my near future to stock up on some jeweled animal pins and oversized flower brooches. Who's in?

Edit: Was just directed to Jane's blog, Sea of Shoes, by a lovely reader. She and her mom styled a blazer with their amazing pin and brooch collection after being inspired by the same J. Crew lookbook photo. Check it out here!

CANOLA FIELDS FOREVER

OK, I didn't mean to coordinate my dress with the canola fields, I swear! I just picked up this little Rachel Rachel Roy number - it's such a fun summer dress! Plus, you all know I love a good print! When trying to explain my new purchase to my friends ("It's a very short lime green dress with turquoise snake skin print"), it sounds horrendous in theory, but in actuality it is actually kind of amazing, no!?

Like my Rachel Rachel Roy dress? You can find it as well as many other must-have-right-this-instant designer pieces from Akris, BCBG, Stella McCartney, Miu Miu, and more at my favey shopping destination, DesignerApparel.com! Go, go, go!

FIELDS OF COLOR

Happy Birthday, Canada! So proud to be a citizen of this beautiful country (and equally excited to visit with my American counterparts in NYC this fall)!! This was my Canada Day outfit - no red and white because this beautiful, hot, sunny day called for an impossibly colorful outfit! I'm really into longer, full skirts right now so I pulled out this vintage favorite for the occasion!
