Les Bonbons earrings by Rebecca de Ravenel | dress by Tory Burch | shoes by See by Chloe | purse by Gucci
Currently I am feeling bright colors and all things fun and I am letting my mood play out in my style. The coveted Les Bonbons earrings by Rebecca de Ravenel that I am wearing really capture the essence of my current mood. One of the best ways to make your style happy is through accessories and jewelry!
Les Bonbons have become the “it” accessory to have this summer. Written up in premier fashion publications and sold out everywhere, I was lucky enough to snag this blue ombre pair. You can purchase these earrings now on her website or see below.
Btw, the earrings are clip-on so you don’t need to have your ears pierced.

The cherry blossoms in DC this year are much more of a blush color than an authentic “cherry blossom” pink. This shade of blush happens to be an amazing neutral that designers are currently embracing as often as they do black. I have seen so many beautiful dresses lately in blush. These are some of the blush dresses I like and recommend:

Because Gucci, sigh. There are few designers I have ever legitimately lusted over and with Alessandro Michele at the helm steering all things creative at Gucci, EVERYTHING he has been designing is something to swoon over.
You may recall back in December I posted this photo on instagram telling you I had purchased/splurged (understatement) on my Christmas, birthday, Women’s History month, etc. gift to myself for the year. Well here is her grand debut; the Gucci Blooms Dionysis (for Greek God see here).
I know in DC many of us women and men save and splurge on that one big item. What makes splurging in DC so fun now, is that we have more designers with a presence in DC than ever, not to mention the Gucci downtown where everything in the store is amazing. You now have so many options to expand outside of the safe, predictable tote bag that everyone is carrying (why be like everyone else) and pick something unique. DC has evolved greatly in the fifteen years I have lived here and there is now more style, fresh looks, and designers present than we have ever had! Carpe diem!

Cardigan by Zadig & Voltaire
Zadig & Voltaire is an extremely edgy brand out of France. DC is lucky to have one of their few freestanding locations downtown at City Center. I think a lot of people are intimidated by the cool factor displayed in the windows, but if you actually go into the store you will find that the clothing is quite approachable. Zadig & Voltaire has many luxurious basics, including this cashmere cardigan that I am featuring today. I happened to pop into Zadig & Voltaire yesterday and they mentioned to me that they are having a sale on all cashmere through the weekend; so now is a good time to go in and take a look at their clothing.
