Everything’s Coming Up Roses

I’ve always loved pastels, so I am actually pretty excited that they are everywhere recently! Specifically, pastel pinks are everywhere recently. I love the fact that they are having their moment in the months that are usually reserved for heavy, dark & rich colors. What I love even more, is that pastels are being matched with heavier textures, which makes them definitely cold-weather appropriate. But, what I loveĀ even more, is the fun that can be had mixing and matching soft, floaty feminine pastels with harsher and heavier Fall/Winter gear.

I love the floaty pink top I’m wearing – you can find it at Forever21 – it’s very girly, but less in-your-face than some other pink styles I’ve been seeing around lately.

However, if we’re talkin’ in-your-face pink, I’ll be honest. I am 100% dying for a pastel pink coat. I know, I know, I’m falling for a trend, but just gaze your eyes upon these beauties and try to tell me you wouldn’t wrap yourself up in one of them forever …

You’d think a pink coat would be aggressively girly, but the cool thing about these is that they’re being cut in masculine shapes so they’re a little bit feminine, but also a little bit badass – my favorite way to mix and match!

Would you wear this trend?

Weekend Out Of The City

Happy Friday everyone! I’m so happy to be getting a little break from NYC this weekend. The weather is finally starting to feel like summertime. Plus, days you can spend with a girlfriend, a stack of magazines poolside just soaking up the sun = perfect. Although I could do without the minor sunburn.

Anyway, we went to a great restaurant – one of the faves during summer- Gosman’s in Montauk. The sunsets there are ridiculous and its right on the water, aka too picturesque for words so I’ll stop trying to describe it. This is what we wore:

My top is from LF, shorts are from Forever21 & necklace is of course Chloe + Isabel.

Dana’s dress is also Forever21

Honestly, that place is very hit or miss. Sometimes you can search the racks for hours and feel like everything is so cheap a cocktail at the bar you wore the outfit to will last longer, but other times you can score such awesome pieces like these!

After dinner, we went to this cute little boutique right next to the restaurant and found the cutest blazer and dress (I will post a photo tomorrow!). After all, as Dana told me, “this is the summer of dresses and blazers!”
