Summer weather has finally started to rear it’s head around here.
That means backyard BBQ’ing and outdoor parties will soon become a reality – especially as we make our way toward my four-year-old’s birthday in early June and my own – GASP- 40th in July!
These mini Mason Jar sippers immediately caught my eye and made me long for the lazy days of summer and pink lemonade. I picture a gaggle of sweaty 4-year-olds walking around sipping from cute red and white straws.
But who’s to say that these cute little jars wouldn’t make great high ball glasses filled with hard lemonade for the older set?
Sorry, bloggy friends, for not doing much fashion these days. My “paying gigs” are keeping me busier than ever.
I did want to re-post a piece I did for Momaha.com today though, because I think it’s incredibly relevant and incredibly important. (Read here) Please take a few minutes to read the blog, and even see what Miss Representation is all about.
Thanks, as always, for reading LBS and I’ll be back soon with some fashion inspiration.
I hope you took me seriously when I said that this blog was going to be heavy on the shoes and handbags for a while. They are a pregnant girl’s best friends after all.
It’s so nice when you’re as big as a house and it all still fits.
Today, it’s this Gucci Patent Shoulder Bag with a top handle. If you’ve been reading this blog for some time, you may have gathered that I have a “thing” for patent leather. And this structured bag is no exception.
This little Gucci bag-that-could isn’t too big, and isn’t too small. It gives me a little bit of a Breakfast-at-Tiffany’s-pillbox-hat feeling, but is still a totally modern bag with it’s slight hobo-style silhouette. And you can hike it up on your shoulder while on a spree for more shoes and accessories than one could ever wear during a single pregnancy!
A crossbody bag, the perfect accessory for spring.
While I love big handbags, I’m really not one for filling them up.
That’s why this Burberry Berkeley Crossbody Bag is perfect for a girl like me. If I were to be honest, I regularly carry my wallet, lip gloss and my phone. While I may have other stuff in my bag, it’s not stuff I use often.
I can totally see this bag being the perfect size for a concert, the Summer Arts Fair, date night or dinner with my girlfriends.
Pair it with an eyelet sundress or white jeans and a flowy top, and it’s the perfect carry-most!
That’s right, Reeboks “Classics” have returned. And they are bolder than ever as they were crafted exclusively for Nordstrom in collaboration with Alicia Keys.
If you were coming of age in the late 80′s like I was, you will no doubt remember these high-top sneakers worn with extra-scrunchy socks. Sometimes even layered… as if!
You may have been sporting them with your Guess jean skirt (jeans weren’t coolly referred to as “denim” back then.) Or maybe you were still “pegging” your jeans. Whatever. These were the “it” shoes for a time and now they are back!
I just can’t imagine picking my sons up from school in these, shall we say, “retro” kicks.
Yep, we’re back to dresses… dresses that I can’t wear now, but still dresses.
I am in deep love with this Peter Som dress. At first glance, it looks sort of “matronly.” It reminded me of cleaning out my Great Aunt’s closet, which was full of stylish-for-the-times knit/polyester blend dresses. But close up, this dress is cotton, slightly sheer and features a “rainbow” of blue shades that are some of my faves.
Still not convinced? Check it out here on Rachel McAdams with a creamy, demure coat and cap-toe pumps!
