Send The Trend

Black & White

August 13, 2013


- J.Crew blouse (old), 7FAM pants (on sale!), Send the Trend bangles,
J.Crew pumps (love these too), Forever 21 clutch (old), earrings from India -

Can I make a confession?  When black and white was announced as “on trend” for 2013, I laughed.  Hard.

How can two colors (or if we want to get technical, absence of colors) be deemed as a trend?  My Indian self scoffed at the idea of not wearing at least one bright hue in an outfit.

But this outfit happened.  And while I still refuse to acknowledge this graphic color combination as a trend, it offers a nice respite from my usual colorful outfits.  Especially when paired with icy silver accessories (traditionally Indian Hitha, donned in a sari and laden in gold and ruby jewelry, has no idea what to do with this outfit post).

Gettin’ Away

July 9, 2013


- Sail to Sable tunic c/o, Sir Alistair Rai scarf (updated style), DIY Jack Rogers sandals c/o,
BaubleBar bracelet and ring, Send The Trend earrings (old), Kate Spade tote c/o -

The title of this post is completely deceiving.

You see, while I have traveled quite a bit this summer, it hasn’t been on vacation.  Familial obligations, business trips…that’s more like it (I’m in Dallas right now, and flying to Charlotte tonight).

My husband and I had the brilliant idea to take one MAJOR vacation this year, at Thanksgiving.  We cashed in all our airline miles and hotel points for a 3 week jaunt around Asia (China, Bali, Malaysia, and South Korea specifically), but failed to realize that we’d probably need a quick trip this summer to recharge.

Silly us.  So while a proper vacation this summer isn’t exactly in the cards, I’ve just been dressing like I’m already on holiday.  And what says “summer getaway” better than a linen tunic and a cheeky quoted tote?  And classic gold sandals, naturally.

And I can assure that we won’t be making the same mistake next year.  In fact, I’m already looking at a trip through Scandanavia next summer to celebrate our 30th birthdays (and me conquering everything on this list).

What’s your go-to vacation look?  Do you have any exciting travel plans this summer?  COMMENT below and let me know!

White Out

June 25, 2013



- Annie Griffin top c/0, J Brand jeans, DIY Jack Rogers sandals c/o, Rebecca Minkoff bag,
BaubleBar ring & bracelet, Send The Trend earrings, Amazon sunglasses -

I’m not exaggerating when I say that this is the most perfect summer top.  It really is.

While billowy, it remains flattering (just be sure to pair it with a fitted bottom!) and the white eyelet makes it perfect for summer.  When paired with my favorite jeans and go-to accessories, it’s come together in another outfit I reach for during panicked I-have-nothing-to-wear moments.  I’ll be pairing this with the infamous Zara skort that’s been making its way around the blog world next, and wishing I was watching Wimbledon live.  Because seriously, can you think of a more perfect outfit?  Negative.
