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.

Real talk…

I generally pride myself on being a grown-@$$ woman, but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t completely hooked on Pretty Little Liars and more than a little bummed that the series is quickly coming to an end. As I’ve been shamelessly binge-watching the last season, I couldn’t help but notice Aria’s plethora of leather moto jackets in a dizzying array of colors and textures. Zara had a similar jacket for sale last year that I missed out on (although I manage to snag it’s baby blue counterpart on the clearance rack). So when the updated version popped up this year in my favorite color (PINK!), I couldn’t resist.

Next I’m thinking a floral version may be in order. Stay tuned…
