Fashion for the 4th

Velvet skirt, daftbird top, E & J jacket
So the fourth is upon us- it's time for cookouts, fireworks and red, white & blue! Our lovely Bex put together some of her favorite looks for the holiday (even though she's from Zimbabwe and has no clue as to why we need fireworks and hotdogs to celebrate our independence) but she got into the spirit regardless! Go USA!

DVF dress

7FAMK shorts, Joie Soft striped tank, Saludos shoes & Krisa button down

La Mer red patent wrap watch & La Mer cobalt wrap watch

Wren open back dress & Romygold white leather bag

E & J romper & Rebecca Minkoff striped hobo

Textile by E &J red shorts, daftbird tee& Nation denim linen button down
There you have it! Something for every 4th of July occasion. Happy Celebrating!

Wedding Weekend Wardrobe 411

first things first: rock out @ the bachelorette party in this Elizabeth & James Romper. Top is off with a cool neck piece like this Carol Marie one we just got in..
Next up: Bridal brunch.. keep it dressy casual in this silk Rebecca Taylor floral top and E & J metallic shorts. The final touch? Layer two necklaces by Perverted Pearl- love the mammoth bone skull & pearls!

Finally, the main event. Need I say more? Winter Kate maxi.
Rehearsal dinner: Can't beat this tiered ruffle Shoshana number..paired with the best necklace ever, how can you go wrong?!

 If I had a dollar for every time someone said to me: "Oh, you're at that age..I remember when all of my friends got married etc etc.." I would have at least half of the amount of  money I've spent thus far on all of these weddings! Don't get me wrong- I'm so happy for all of my friends who are tying the knot (Jessica & Josh, Sarah & Kurt, Heather & Reid, Dargan & John and Max & Amy- I wasn't kidding about being on the wedding circuit!) But let's face it..weddings=$$$ and not just for the father of the bride! In the end, it's always worth it..the first dance, the fight for the bouquet and of course, the cake! I guess I could be practical and just wear something I already have, but where's the fun in that?! So I put together my fantasy wedding weekend wardrobe with some of our new summer digs.. These outfits are perfect for a destination wedding in a place like Charleston- a laid back beach town with old town, southern charm. Is it a coincidence that I'm heading there on Monday for a wedding....??? :)

Here's to Happily Ever After!!! xoxo

Move Over Royal Wedding..Here Come Heather & Reid!

Well, it finally happened- the closest thing to a Pink vacation in 20-some odd years!! Thanks to Heather (a former Pink employee) and Reid's nuptials, we all packed up and made the 7 hour trek down 95 to Charleston, SC. It was a  weekend to remember, filled with bluegrass bands, barbeque and plenty of beer- and a perfect wedding ceremony to top it all off! We were very lucky to have a weekend of impeccable beach weather- endless amounts of sunshine without a cloud in the sky. A big thanks to Angie, Dawn and Bex for holding down the Pink fort while we were all off celebrating with the happy couple! And thanks to Heather and Reid for letting us all share this amazing time with you and your family!!!
