A Wink and A Smile

As August winds down, I am drawn to super punchy colors like this fun outfit (though for work I often tone things down to a bright lip).

I haven’t done a links post in forever and I’m excited to be back on the train!

A and I finally tried Tatte Bakery last weekend and it TRULY lived up to the hype. Now I want to take one of her pastry classes!

It was high time I replaced by 7 year old PC from freshman year of college. I am proud to say I bought myself a MacBook without using credit. I’ll be using this guide a lot in the coming weeks!

JCrew just posted the first round of September Style Guide images on Pinterest and this color combination caught my eye:

The pale pink with citron and army green (and a hint of burgundy) is cool, perfect for early fall, and definitely unique. I’m reminded of Christian Siriano’s Spring 2012 ready-to-wear collection, specifically these two looks:

This fall I think I’ll be layering my citron sweater with some army green pants/jeans and finishing off the look with my blush patent wedges.

Any particular color combinations catching your eye lately?

I realized I haven’t posted a wedding gown in awhile and think it’s high time I shared a few that have caught my eye recently. 

{1 / 2 / 3}

The first two are very much the kind of dress I’m typically drawn to and while Olivia Palermo’s Carolina Herrara wedding ensemble isn’t new news, it knocks me out every time I see it. Love it!
