tops: J. Crew, Ralph Lauren. jeans: Rag & Bone (on sale!!). jacket: Gap. shoes: BCBG. bag: Tory Burch. sunnies: Kate Spade. watch: Michele. bracelets: David Yurman, J. Crew. rings: Bauble Bar, David Yurman. lips: Nars "Roman Holiday". nails: Essie "Licorice" phone case: Abigail Lee.

It's a little hard to tell from the pictures, but my jeans and bag are both light pink! I have been absolutely obsessed with the hue since it first re-appeared this past spring. It is the epitome of everything girly (which is totally me!) Pairing lighter shades of pink with black or navy gives your outfit a sense of balance and keeps you from looking too youthful.
What's your favorite "it" color of the moment?

Today I am thrilled to team up with Warby Parker to launch their newest collection! Inspired by impromptu, can't-duplicate-them all-nighters, the Beacon Collection goes wherever life takes you. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Warby Parker, they are high quality, but budget friendly glasses and sunglasses (most frames are under $100!!). In addition, Warby Parker is dedicated to giving back...for every pair of glasses sold, they donate a pair to someone in need.

Shop my picks from the Beacon collection:

dress: J. Crew (similar). shirt: J. Crew. bag: Coach. shoes: Keds (also loving this polka dot version!). sunnies: Karen Walker. necklace: vintage (similar). watch: Michele. jewels: David Yurman, ASOS.

Nothing screams classic prep more than gingham, Keds and an oversized string of pearls. Try doubling up on gingham or layering it underneath a relaxed shift dress for an updated look.

Weekend Latte

top: St. James. skirts: Zara (similar). jacket: Gap. shoes: Valentino. bag: Fiorelli. sunnies: Karen Walker. hair bow: DIY  watch: Michele. bracelets: David Yurman, J. Crew, ASOS. rings: David Yurman, Mint Julep, ASOS. necklace: Max & Chloe. lips: Stila "Fiery".

The last couple of weeks at work have been crazy busy, by the time the weekend rolls around I want nothing more than to lounge around and relax. Lucky for me, there is a great little coffee shop down the street from my apartment that is perfect for doing just that. I love being able to sip my latte and get lost in a great book, or just sit on the sidewalk and watch the world go by. What do you do to relax on the weekends?

Pastel Princess

top: Equipment. skirt: ASOS (similar here and here - on sale!!). shoes: Sam Edelman. bag: Rebecca Minkoff (also here). sunnies: Tiffany & Co. watch: Michele. bracelets: David Yurman, Tiffany & Co., J. Crew. rings: Bauble Bar, Urban Outfitters, Michael Kors, Etsy. lips: Nars "Roman Holiday". nails: Essie "Muchi Puchi".

I love this look because it's the perfect combination of sweet and flirty. The soft pastel pallet reads sweet and innocent, but the hemline and shape of the skater skirt adds a distinct sexiness that makes it perfect for date night!

xo, Steph :)
