Some days, I just wanna channel my inner 5 year-old and rock head-to-toe pink. And while I was at it, I figured I might as well throw in a few bows for good measure!

I know people always say to invest in higher-quality pieces because they’ll last longer, and blah, blah, blah… But I’ve had this gorgeous clutch for more than 7 years, and it’s still going on strong. I’m pretty sure I got it at Forever 21 for less than $20, but I’ve taken it to the opera, fancy dinner parties, gallery openings, you name it – and it’s held up super well over time and garnered me many compliments.

Why I never really thought to pair blush pink with fuchsia is before is beyond me. But when I ran across these AMAZING earrings, it was like a light bulb finally went off.  I’m so glad it did, and now this might become one of my favorite color combos. Don’t you just love it when things like that happen?!

Lastly, I’ve had these gorgeous satin Miu Miu pumps for over four years, and I love them just as much as when I first got them. They truly bring a smile to my face, and I look forward to bringing them out of hiding each spring. And I know, I know… I just extolled the virtues of shopping on the cheap less than two paragraphs earlier, but some shoes things you just can’t put a price on… ya dig?!

Starting off the day in beautiful Niagara Falls and Upstate New York with the sun shining and the birds chirping = WINNING!
Dropping one of your favorite earrings somewhere on Cornell’s massive campus = LOSING!

In any case, we had a glorious time on the road recently traveling to one of my favorite places on earth – Niagara Falls! More on that soon, I promise. In the meantime, we snapped these pics on the way back home during our stopover in Ithaca, NY. Not sure if I’ve mentioned it before, but I just love visiting historic college campuses. The Northeast has some of the most beautiful, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have visited all of the Ivies (Cornell was the last one I needed to check off my list). In addition to wonderful classic architecture, many of them also have interesting museums and galleries to explore. And if you’re lucky with your timing, you may even catch a play or musical production.

Ever put on an outfit and just feel… GOOD?

Well that’s exactly how I felt the day I wore this ensemble to work. The day was filled with client meetings in Midtown, and so I wanted to look polished but still have fun with my outfit. Enter my new red double-breasted blazer from Zara which is everything you need in life right now. Seriously, this thing is amazing. It’s tailored to perfection and makes me feel oh-so-chic! 

Also, if you’ve watched my fashion hacks video on how to instantly upgrade your wardrobe, you’ll notice that I’ve employed three of my style secrets in this ensemble to help elevate my look:

  1. Designer shades
  2. A Chanel brooch
  3. A killer pair of heels
