    Travel in Style

    Today I am flying back to Boston after a short business trip to L.A. and I am really looking forward to getting back home and spending quality time with family and friends.

    I believe when you travel you should look stylish.  Yes, it's equally important to be comfortable but why not look cute too? My standard outfit for travel usually consists of black leggings, a long top, and comfortable flats. I have these flats from Nordstrom and they are so cute. I am also admiring this Splendid top but I don't think I need another striped top in my closet right now.

    Enjoy the weekend.

     

    Day Birger et Mikkelsen stripe jersey top $100
    J.Crew Jenna's cardigan $70
    Report "Kimball 2" Flat $49.95
    J.Crew Layered link necklace Sale $50.00

    Just Let Me Lie Down

    As a mom of a 2 year old,  sometimes I feel like I just need to lie down! The past month or so I have been trying to read a bit before going to sleep every evening.  And, I must say I am doing pretty well!  It feels so good to get back to reading, even if it is just 10-15 minutes every evening.  I just finished reading this book by Kristin van Ogtrop, editor of Real Simple magazine.  Just Let Me Lie Down is a funny and easy to read book about motherhood and working.
    Next on the reading list is The Help by Kathryn Stockett.

    5 New Ideas for your Spring Wardrobe

    Ok no exciting pictures today because I am on a airplane right now flying from Boston to LA.  Have you flown Virgin America yet? What an amazing airline!  All the employees are always so accommodating and they make sure everyone has a pleasant experience on board (despite the turbulence taking place right now).  It's so nice to be connected to the Internet and get work done,  despite the fact that I would rather be watching an on demand movie right now.

    So anyway, I am a bit of a procrastinator when it comes to packing so this morning at 5 am as I was frantically packing for my my business trip  I came up with this idea about 5 ways to enhance your spring wardrobe.  Yes, I actually came up with these ideas before drinking my morning cup of coffee.

    1. Be creative and daring with accessories. Add belts, long necklaces, lots of bangles, and fun watches.

    2. Add color to your wardrobe-spring is the perfect time to do this. Yellow, red, and fuchsia are all great colors to add a pop of color to your look.

    3. Mix trendy inexpensive pieces with more expensive classic pieces from your wardrobe. I love buying high quality jeans,  but I love to mix it up with fun  and flirty tops from H&M and Forever 21.

    4. Buy a few pieces that can serve multi functions. It's nice to have a few pieces you can transform from work to evening dinners to weekend day trips. Cardigans, frilly blouses, black skinny pants, simple black dress, and casual blazers all come to mind.

    5. Make old pieces new again. I just took out my fitted jean jacket from a few seasons ago and it is one of my favorite pieces to wear right now.

    What are your fresh new ideas for your Spring Wardrobe?

    Spring in Full Bloom

    Typically when I shop I like to buy clothes that are either black, grey, or neutral in color.  But, last week I did the complete opposite and I bought a silk floral blouse from Zara.  Now I am hooked on the floral trend and want one of these dresses.

     How can you not love these bright floral dresses from the Spring 2010 Erdem Ready to Wear collection?  They are all absolutely gorgeous.

    Quick Fix


    Dry shampoo is one of my favorite styling products I am using right now. And i think the Rene Furterer Naturia is one of the best ones available.  It's a great way to maintain your hairstyle between washes and also to avoid washing your hair too often.  It's super easy to use and it leaves your hair looking fresh as if you had just washed and blowdryed it.  I keep one in my gym bag, one at home, and I always travel with one. In fact, every time I use it at the gym I get questions about it and how it works.   It's also great because it comes in a 1.6 oz and 3.2 oz bottle.  To use it, just spray onto hair at a distance of 10 inches. Leave on for two minutes, then brush out.
