Slipping into Island Time

Goodies

Finally, I’m able to imagine myself in a slip dress!  I lost most of the baby weight that I gained with my two little ones and now I’m actually looking at dresses without sleeves.  The other day, I wore a sleeveless dress to Disneyland and ended up with red shoulders as I forgot to put sunblock on my arms as I’m not used to exposing them.  I learned my lesson.  Next time, I definitely won’t forget to slather on the sunblock, when I slip into island time!

1.  Gucci Aviators:  Classic Gucci bamboo is the perfect way to top these aviators.

2.  Ferragamo Slip Dress:  Love the colors and the color blocking.  Oooh, I wish I can put this dress on now!

3.  Carolina Herrera:  Falling Jasmine necklace is the perfect way to accent a summer slip dress.  Love the smell of jasmine.

4.  Mansur Gavriel:  I may not wear pink, but I will carry a pink bag.  This chic lady bag is big enough for my goods and my little boys’ ninja turtles, legos and a ton of bribeworthy snacks for the kids.  Looks like there might be room for a water bottle!

5.  Celine:  Ballerina/ Jiffy Heel.  I know.  White shoes?  With chunky heels?  With gold hardware?  Why?  Because it’s Celine. And Phoebe Philo’s midas touch.  For those reasons, I need them.  Or at least I need to illustrate them.

Sea Days

Goodies

Summer season is upon us and these illustworthy goodies from Bazaar’s May issue will take me from seaside to poolside and to a sunset al fresco dinner.  Love this list of some delicious options for best places to eat by the sea.  I can’t wait to try every one of these restaurants one day with my hubby and our little boys.  In the meantime, I guess living in sunny Los Angeles will have to do. Here are the 6 lustworthy goodies for my long Sea Days.

1.  Oliver Peoples :: The gold and amber colors of this pair will really shine against a pink sand beach.

2.  Eres :: Love the peekaboo of the gold bands on the dark olive Alliages Tungstene bandeau bikini, especially if they peep out from the caftan.

3.  Etienne Aigner :: These sandals are luxuriously easy, chic and comfy.

4.  Lisa Eisner :: This turquoise statement necklace can easily transition from day to night.

5.  Two New York Caftan ::  These sophisticated stripes and colors are perfectly airy for the sea days and nights.

6.  Truss NYC :: Geometric and colorful, they’ll hold all my beach goodies.

Here’s a link to my instagram and tumblr for illustrations long before they’re posted on my blog.  xox
