Hot in Hoboken

Looking across the river at NYC

Yesterday I took a trip into Hoboken to see one of my very best friends. After living in Europe for 7 years, and not being great at keeping in touch, I can always rely on my friend to carry on our friendship as if no time had past at all. Also a special thanks to her for being my photographer. 
It was a beautiful day in Hoboken and as you can see from my pictures the right side of my arm and shoulder got very burnt (stupid me for not wearing sunscreen). I particularly love the outfit I wore; its very classic and on trend at the same time. I also love a bit of bright red lipstick; although the wind kept blowing my hair into my mouth and the ends of my hair were a pinkish colour. My friend told me she thought that I had tried to dye the ends of my hair pink and that it went a bit wrong! Oh well, I will only wear red lipstick when my hair is up in the future.

This OR That

I love a good statement necklace, especially this pink  J.Crew number. However I do not love the price at $150.  I did some searching around and was astonished when I found what seems to be an exact replica on Etsy for $39.00. No one has to know its not the real thing!

Dots & Stripes

I wore this outfit out the other day just to run a few errands. I got so many nice compliments on the stripes and dots combo that it got me thinking about mixing other patterns. Any one have any great ideas about other cool pattern mixes? I would love for you to share.
P.S. (My pictures are not as good my photographer got a real job)

One Thing This Week

If I could get one thing this week it would be this Top Shop animal print blazer. I have no blazers after my big move from Germany to America. I had to get-rid of as much clothing as possible, my blazers were the first to go. So now that I am trying to rebuild my wardrobe I might have to have this. If you have any great blazers please share!

Weekend Wants!

Here are some great weekend finds. I am in a bit of a homey mood and have been browsing lots of home good sights and interior design blogs. I love this bold Ikat chair and metal accent tables.

This OR That: Animal Print Peplum

Here it is, another instalment of This OR That.  I have decided to make this a weekly post because I love seeing a great piece and then trying to find something that looks very similar for a lot less. When I first saw this Kate Spade animal print peplum top I just had to have it, but I knew it was not going to happen at $268.00.  I was over the moon when I spotted this ASOS version for only $41.43, a little bit more wallet friendly if you ask me! 

Have a Great Friday Everyone!

Come Fly With Me!

That's right folks I must leave Berlin and my husband to head back to the US. My visa in the UK has expired and I am coming to the end of the 90 days I can spend in Germany. Don't get me wrong I love going home but this means the end to the nearly 7 years I have lived in Europe. So it is on to a new adventure and adjusting to an American life style. 
In honour of my travels back I thought I would share with you my formula to a great travelling outfit. I am someone who 100% believes in dressing to travel. I don't mean 1960s shift dress and matching jacket, but taking pride in how you look. I cringe at the thought that people think hoodies and matching pink track suits are acceptable travel wear. 

1. A Lightweight Knit is perfect for travelling. It will keep you covered up but at the same time it will not be too restricting.
2.Softly Tailored Trousers are dressed up but still comfortable if your sitting on a long haul flight.
3. A Large Tote is perfect for storing your computer and all the glossies you buy at the news stand.
4. Easy Slip On And Off Flats are a must while going through airport security.
5. A Little Sparkle just to pull everything together.

Beautiful Bedroom Inspiration

While surfing the vast expansions of the internet, I came across this image of a beautiful bedroom. Someday when I have a house to decorate, this is my idea of the perfect room to end my day. It is soft, feminine and bit art deco. I love that it is neutral and timeless but made interesting with pops of intense pink and blue. It might be a little more pink than my husband would like but for now I can have my ideal bedroom in the blog world. Although it looks super designer I thought it would be easy enough to recreate by having a look at some of my favourite design and home-ware sites.

This OR That: Cat Eye Sunglasses

I think there are some things you don't really need to spend a lot of money on. Sunglasses is one of these items (especially if you are like me and you 1. leave them in dressing rooms, 2. leave them on top of your car then run them over, or 3. sit on them.) I often cannot tell if someone is wearing $5 or $500 glasses unless there is a huge Chanel or Prada logo on them (but could be very good knock offs).  If you're after a particular style, a lot of high street stores do great look-a-likes. I love the Ray-Ban cat eye glasses, but I love the Mango ones even more at just $29.99. A little bit of extra cash left over for a new top as well maybe!?

Have a great Monday everyone!

2013 Resort Extravaganza

2013 Resort is in full swing! I have been following along and I thought that I would share some of my favourite collections so far. I seem to be particularly drawn to Monique Lhuillier's bright and beautiful collection. I would love to own one of these bright floral dresses.

Monique Lhuillier Resort 2013

Thakoon Resort 2013
This is a great collection. It's fresh and I love the blue-green. There is also a hint of relaxed glamour in the detailing of some of the tops and jackets.

Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013
Always for the sophisticate, Oscar de la Renta has created a beautiful collection full of my favourite trend, peplum. 

Gucci Resort 2013
With a hint of 70s this is a very wearable collection. A good trouser jacket combo is always a plus.

Temperley London 2013
I love Temperley London. I might be a bit partial as this was my wedding dress designer. The collection is very soft and pin-up-girl-esque.

Jill Stuart Resort 2013

Look Fantastic in Floral Denim!

What better way to wake up your style than with a pair of floral denim. Here are some great pairs that I found.
These are my favourite I might just have to order these!
