Friday Blues with a Hint of Pink

We made it to Friday! I am so excited for a few adventures coming up in the next few weeks, so thanks for following along :). I will give you a hint of what my upcoming adventures include: an ocean, flowers, and more flowers. Oh yes. As you can tell I have been on the floral fashion train because I cannot stop talking about them. I found my top on sale from Anthropologie and I thought it was perfect to wear in the city because it is long sleeved but still bright and cheery (writing this as I wore all black today…). I paired it with my jeans from Zara that are so comfy (and they are high rise!) and my bright pink M. Gemi flats. Anthro usually has a few great pieces on sale when I check out their site or in store (and make sure to grab some Voluspa candles while you’re at it) so make sure to take a peek.

I hope you enjoy your time with family and friends this weekend for Easter! And don’t stay at work too late today.. Happy Friday!

XO.

Lex

There is no shame in wearing red or pink for Valentine’s Day. I loved pairing this corset style strapless dress from Anthropologie with a black leather jacket and a pointed heel to give it a little edge. After you get ready for your date, what else does a girl need other than flowers? Bill has been sweet enough to surprise me with flowers for Valentine’s Day from my favorite flower company, Flowers for Dreams. Not only are they my favorite because of their artisan appeal, but Flowers For Dreams donates 25% of their proceeds to a local Chicago charity each month. I encourage you to send a lovely bouquet from their Valentine’s Day collection to someone special – mom, grammy, best friends, or your significant other. Flowers For Dreams cares about the greater good, and their customer service is a ten. A special thank you to Flowers For Dreams for making me feel so special!

What are your plans for Valentine’s Day? Let’s be twins and wear a bright color, despite it being a cold winter! A few of my favorite Valentine’s Day outfits are linked below.

Get The Look: Nicole Richie in Givenchy Florals

There is not a lot Nicole Richie hasn’t done. She shaved her eyebrows off when she was 11, had a hit reality show, and now is one of the top fashion icons…all while still saving time to tend to her at home garden. This past weekend at the Lucky Mag weekend, I found out that she wears dresses because her daughter loves it, and it was also her daughters request that she dye her hair lilac. While Richie looks like a princess in the eyes of her daughter, she showed up to FABB looking nothing short of glam rock. The piece that grabbed my attention? Her over-sized Givenchy floral blazer. Can’t afford to drop a cool $3,000? No problem. Here are some other floral options perfect for Spring!
