Sailing Away With Lilly Pulitzer

This colorful Sydney Caftan by Lilly Pulitzer is pretty great for summer days. It's light and flowy, with cute tassels. This would work great as a swimsuit coverup.  It would also be perfect for a boat or beach day, paired with white denim shorts (my favorite pair ever, here).  If you pick this up, be mindful that it runs large. You should size down at least a full size. I'm wearing an XXS/XS.

A Classic Work Look With A Pencil Skirt

I love pairing black and gray together to get a classic work look. It's always professional but more interesting than a simple monochromatic style.  I think one reason that dressing for the office can get monotonous is because we all tend to fall into work "ruts" where our 9 to 5 cycle seems endless.  I have a very demanding job, and believe me, it's very easy to just wear slacks and a button down all week long, but sometimes you want to feel a bit more confident and stand out - not just for what you're saying and accomplishing but also for your great outfit.

A pencil skirt with a sleek silhouette is a workwear staple that every woman needs in her style arsenal.  The one I'm wearing is by Olga Pastrynak. It has impeccable tailoring, is made from high-quality fabric, moves with ease and has an appropriate length.  It's also lined, which is very important for avoiding ugly lines in harsh office lighting

Whenever I wear a high neck top, I always pick my hair up. I like the contrast of a messy ponytail with a polished outfit.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Please let me know in the comments section below.

Aerin Pefume Mediterranean Honeysuckle

Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle Fragrance

Quick post to share the new Aerin Mediterranean Honeysuckle fragrance and set.  I've raved about the Aerin line of fragrances in the past.  I absolutely love Ikat Jasmin and Amber Musk. I love the bottles, with their crisp lines and jeweled toppers. They look beautiful displayed anywhere. 

The newest fragrance is Mediterranean Honeysuckle. It's more spicy than sweet, containing honeysuckle and citrusy notes. It has mandarin orange, gardenia, and lily of the valley. It's a great daytime scent. In my experience, these perfumes are never overpowering.

As with many popular fragrances, this scent has the perfect pairings in its body wash, body cream and bar soap.

It comes in two sizes, 1.7 oz ($110) and a very large 3.4 oz ($155). It's available on the Nordstrom website (so that you can use your Nordstrom Notes), directly from Aerin and on other online retailers like The OutNet

Miami Children's Health Foundation & Nicklaus Children's Hospital ‪#‎2gether4thechildren‬

I'm interrupting my regular fashion posts for a good cause. This is a sponsored post on behalf of Think Red Inc. and Nicklaus Children's Hospital. 
Please read below. 
Treating children with heart conditions
This is a link to a video that tells Vanessa and Luna's story. The story of a little baby born with a Chiari Network so large that it enveloped her entire heart. The story of a mother, who was told that her daughter, that she had just delivered, only had mere days left to live, and was advised to "say her goodbyes." This is a video that tells the story of how the doctors at Nicklaus Children's Hospital (in Miami, Florida), part of Miami Children's Health Foundation, had the knowledge, skills, foresight and dedication to perform a risky operation on this child, and gave her the chance at life. Please click here and help us keep MCHF. 
Today I show my support for Miami Children’s Health Foundation and Nicklaus Children’s Hospital by updating my Facebook profile photo with the ‪#‎2gether4thechildren‬ heart filter. Please join me by updating your profile photo.  Help spread awareness of all the incredible work they do each day. You can update your profile simply by clicking here:

Chris Chang For MAC

Electric Mandarin Eyeshadow

The second I saw the visuals for the Chris Chang x MAC collection, I stopped dead in my tracks. The packaging, brightly colored illustrations set on an electric blue background, immediately caught my eye. I have oftentimes said that I am a marketers' dream. I am so preoccupied with the way a product looks on the outside, that sometimes, I don't even want to use it! I also love to keep boxes, (weird, I know).  This collection includes beautiful boxes, that are even decorated on the the inside. In the grand scheme of things, is the the inside of the box my eye shadow comes packaged in really that important? Actually, yes! Keep reading for a preview of all of these beautiful products.

Chris Chang for Mac collection is filled with colorful and highly pigmented products

Chris Chang, of Poesia (a Shanghai based fashion label), is responsible for the kaleidoscope of colors in this newest MAC collaboration.  Chang drew inspiration from the ancient Chinese artform, Kunqu, one of the oldest types of Chinese opera.  I was sent several products and haven't had a chance to use them all yet, but I did want to get this post up so that you guys could see everything before the makeup collection launches on May 5th (online) with the in-store launch on May 12th.  I will be adding swatches to this post later this week.
