Happy {Tropical Punch} Weekend

Well luvies, I’m off. The huz and I are making our escape to Belize!


Don’t worry ~ I will only be gone for a week, but I will be gloriously isolated from all things electronic and I could not be more excited. Of course, I’ll miss you terribly and I wouldn’t dare leave you all alone.

I have a very special guest coming to keep you company next week. I hope you all have a marvelous time!

UPDATE: The Lo & Sons Getaway & Giveaway winner has been randomly selected. Congratualtions to Anna, of Tulip Louise! Lucky girl. And thanks to everyone for entering.

See you all in a week,
*Mrs. E

Style It Up: Minoux

Darlings, I don’t know if you’ve been following along but some uber-stylish bloggers have been taking part in a Style Circle this week (brilliant idea!), putting their personal touch on gorgeous necklaces from Minoux Jewelry. And now it’s my turn!

I had the pleasure of styling the Minoux Harmonic Mean necklace, with it’s warm gold pyramid and bright turquoise cord. So far we’ve seen casual looks, beach looks, weekend looks and party looks with these pieces, so I thought why not bring it to work!



My spring wardrobe mantra is color color color and I love the deep bronzey-orange of this Rachel Comey top I snagged a few years back. And the turquoise chord pops off of it perfectly, wouldn’t you agree?!

Pairing the two with a strong black pump and classic black leg-elongating trousers and I’m business meeting ready. I love the idea of pushing the envelope a little bit – hence the dream wardrobe option with Christian Louboutin and glittery gold lame!

I’ve been so impressed how versatile the Minoux pieces are. Be sure to check out all the other ladies’ takes on them:

Monday – my style pill and honey kennedy
Tuesday – i am a greedy girl
Wednesday – Coco + Kelley
Thursday – where the lovely things are
Friday – me (thanks so much for stopping by) & squid

Happy Friday luvies,

what I’m wearing: bcbg trousers, piere victoria pumps, rachel comey top, obakki bag. Dream wardrobe: louboutins, roksanda ilincic

Feeling Cagey {2009}

As I continue to help my sister and dear friends with wedding planning, I’m loving so many of the amazing details out there.

However, sitting on the very tiptop of my faves list is the bridal accessory de-jour: the birdcage veil.
I’ve never been a big fan of the veil. Too much religious and gender baggage there for me, but the birdcage veil feels different somehow. More engaging, flirtatious, simply stylish.
Maybe I’ll wear one to work, just for fun!
