Honestly WTF & Luv AJ X Urban Outfitters

Last night was the second event for Americana at Brand's blogger series, Style Social. Urban Outfitters hosted a fab DIY night with bloggers, Honestly WTF & jewelry designer, Luv AJ
DIYers were able to re-furbish old tees with the girls from Honestly WTF and create amazing body jewelry & turbans with Amanda from Luv AJ. I did some MAJOR shoe spotting too:

 Amanda was rocking incredible Penelope & Coco dalmatian booties that I wrote about here and Erica from Honestly WTF killed it in her DIY "Miu Miu" Zara booties - check out her DIY here. Aren't they both drool worthy?!
The series continues every Thursday through April 12th with bloggers like Sincerely Jules, and Oh Joy! Get more deets here.

Shoe Closet Envy: Tamara Mellon

Former Chief Creative Office and co-founder of Jimmy Choo, Tamara Mellon, has a fantastic home with an equally drool worthy shoe closet. A couple of years ago BAZAAR went inside her closet and found rows and rows of Choos {shoe closet starts at 1:11}:



Talk about a lot of Jimmy Choos! A part of me feels like she has a separate area for non-Jimmy Choo shoes, no? I guess when you're the co-founder, you have serious brand loyalty!

Yellow Denim: A Shoe Closet's Best Friend

Hello yellow denim, welcome to the wardrobe! As I was standing in front of my shoe closet, with GAP yellow denim in hand, it hit me that the shoe pairings are endless. Yellow kind of goes with everything!

Since my last colored denim post was so much fun, why not add another color? A beige sweater & yellow denim just works with everything in the shoe closet! 

"Wow 'em from the waist down" with bold shoes in a range of colors or go neutral for a more subtle look:
The Shoes:
{Sole Society 'Belinda', J. Crew Flats, Brian Atwood Heels, Sole Society Sandals, Topshop Heels, DV by Dolce Vita Sandals}

Craving a pair of yellow denim in your life? They really will become a spring & summer staple.

Neon Manis

Neon details are everywhere this season and one great way to incorporate them is through a manicure. A couple weeks ago I tried a pop of yellow and this weekend I went for neon pink with a touch of glitter. Whenever I buy a new polish, I like to think of all the different ways to wear it. {What? I like options!} Excited to try the nude 'V' combo and the half polka dot look:

Glitter is always my go-to for spicing up a basic mani; it's easy and adds such pizazz! What neon colors are you excited to try this season?

Weekend Pics

Sometimes all you need is a rainy day to actually relax and decompress. Sunday was that day and it was so lovely! This weekend I did a little retail therapy too:

Charles David Wedges spotted @ Nordis on Friday

Found the perfect neon pink polish and a new necklace on Saturday
 
Snagged yellow denim @ GAP ... I may have a colored denim addiction

 Hooray, our orchids are alive and doing well

Hope your weekend was fabulous and refreshing!

It's always inspiring to meet successful women who are following their passions. That's why I had to stop by the The Divorcée Sale over the weekend to meet founder Jill Alexander and, of course, check out all the incredible shoes!

The sale, currently popped-up on Melrose Ave., features pre-loved clothing, shoes, handbags and jewelry from fabulous brands like Christian Louboutin, Gucci, Burberry, Jimmy Choo, Halston, Prada and more.

Shop My Look: Spring Color

This spring it's all about color, color and more color! Did a little shopping at Kohl's recently and fell in love with some of their fabulous collections:

  { Jennifer Lopez Collection TopLC Lauren Conrad Skirt, LC Lauren Conrad Sandals}

Try mixing bold corals with other striking hues and finishing it off with neutral heels. It really creates the perfect springtime look that can take you from work to play. So looking forward to pairing the coral chiffon skirt with my entire wardrobe this spring. It has just the right girly touch! How amazing are the LC Lauren Conrad sandals? Love the stitched detail and overall silhouette. Plus they are super comfy!

Weekends just go by too fast! Had much needed girl time, celebrated St. Patrick's Day and took my new red heels for a spin:

Wine and homemade pizza was the perfect way to relax on Friday evening

Hope your weekend was fab and relaxing!
