♥ Fashionably Moi! ♥

Wearing: Mossimo Supply Co. Plaid Top in Blue Plaid via Target; Forever 21 Classic Slim Denim Pants in Denim Black; Sock Dreams Long Cuffable Scrunchable Socks in Natural; Nine West Magic in Cognac Leather; Forever 21 Rhinestone Three Finger Ring in Clear / Silver.

Reading: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green.

Glamourizing: Nails: Nicole by OPI Strike A Pose from the Kardashian Spring 2012 Kollection. (NOTE: The shade is going to be in heavy rotation for spring/summer pedicures – so gorg!). Lips: mark Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss in Peek-A-Boo. Eyes: mark I-mark Metallics Custom Pick Eye Shadow in Goldi Luxe.

Listening: How Will I Know by Whitney Houston. Love old-school Whitney. RIP to an incredible talent who left an unforgettable mark on the music world.

Adoring: Backpacks. Love the way the aesthetic invokes schoolyard style in a grow-up fashion. For sophistication, I vote Tory Burch’s Kailey Top Handle Backpack; for subtle edginess I favor Mimi Boutique’s Josh Studded Backpack; and for a splash of whimsy I covet Marc by Marc Jacobs’ Miss Marc Packables Backpack. Très adorbs, oui? CLARE VIVIER. The unfussy, yet incredibly fabulous shape of each piece she crafts, coupled with the bright color choices, make these charming carryalls a simple way to add cheery charm to whatever ensemble you may currently be donning. I’m partial to the Fold Over Clutch in Yellow and the Neon Stripe Flat Clutch in Brown / Pink. Gorgeous! Blazers in playful prints and colors that breathe new life into standard work-wear. Seriously digging Nanette Lepore’s First Dance Blazer in Deep Sea Multi, and Rebecca Minkoff’s Becky Jacket in Clambake. Aimer l'amour!

Watching: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. My nephew and I have debated on this a bit, but I have come to the conclusion that Michelangelo is officially my favorite Ninja Turtle. And, of course, I’ll always want to be April O’Neil.

Desiring: Patterson J. Kincaid Welt Ribbon Crochet Short. There is something so romantic about a crocheted aesthetic – especially in a flaming, Fiery Red hue! J’adore! Hunter Boots Regent St. James Tall Rain Boots. Majorly obsédé with the asymmetrical shaft and equestrian-inspired style. These would look perfect coupled with cutoff denim shorts in the summer or black skinnies in the winter! Wildfox Wildfox White Label How The West Was Won Dress in Clean / White. Dying over this dress! How incredible is the lace construction, asymmetrical hemline, and feminine rose appliqué? Need!

Quoting: Paulo Coelho - “Life has many ways of testing a person’s will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.”

Awaiting: Hunter Original High Gloss ’11 in Orchid. After weeks of debating on a color I finally settled on the pastel Orchid; now the countdown for their arrival begins!

But enough about moi; let’s talk about…vous. Time to give me the lowdown on your life, lovers! What are you up to this week?


Fashionably yours!


Thanks to We ♥ It for the picture.

I love backpacks too and I've looked my entire life for one that shows a little more chic... for now it's just North Face ones for when I go hiking!

I'm sure your nails look great.

and I always love the look of blue plaid.

Oh to Be a Muse said...

next to 'i will always love you,' my fave whitney song is definitely 'how will i know'--it rocks.

Natasha Hollerup said...

This is one of my favorite installments of "Fashionably Moi." I love everything that you've posted here. I have a top handle backpack I bought three weeks ago. I've been avoiding reading The Fault in Our Stars, though. I'm totally prolonging the inevitable.
