Rooftop Jungle

6.21.2012



Cheap Monday jeans (last worn here), 
C&A silk floral shirt (we LUST for this one), 
Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mac clutch, 
Vince Camuto Bello heels
Rachel Roy spike bracelet, 
Vintage square link bracelet, 
H&M charm bracelet.

Have you noticed that EVERY color trend is, well, a trend this season? Color blocking, monochromatic, prints, solids, pastels, neons...makes it easy to get dressed in the morning! Of them all though, Lauren and I are both solidly behind rocking bright colors, and we've been picking up pieces to add to our wardrobe (singular use intentional) since the spring. 

Most recent is this amazing bag by Rebecca Minkoff I picked up at Saks. Neither of us has anything quite so bright and no sooner had I brought it over to Lauren's place than she quickly appropriated it as her own. No, really, she wore it out the same night I bought it. But I can't get mad because I've been holding hostage a vintage, white, 80s drawstring purse of hers. After seeing how amazing this bag looks in photos I may need to institute an immediate switch-back though.

PS. That awesome gold tone French manicure Lauren is rocking? She did it herself. I keep telling her she needs to share her skills with the rest of us so a DIY tutorial may be in the works.

  4. That bag is fab! I love the color. The floral print top is super cute styled with the white jeans, totally crisp - And whoa whoa whoa, I must know, the at home french mani is that acquired simply by ultra steady hands, or do you have some fantastic tools and tricks of the trade that a shaky left hander such as myself could really benefit from??

  14. I like it very much how you developed a super outfit around a simple pair of pants. Super top, beautiful bag and the sandals are the cherries on top of the cake.

  27. Amazing photos as always! I love shooting after 5pm, the golden hues you get from the sun adds a gorgeous touch, and I love the top and the shoes. Well honestly I love the entire outfit, the orange RM bag is a great addition to any collection! I can certainly understand why it made a debut out the same day of purchase.

  30. This outfit is gorgeous - the blouse looks perfect across Lauren's shoulders.

    Loving the skyscape photograph of the rooftops. I've never been to NYC, but I definitely plan to live there one day. You ladies will have to show me around when I finally get there! :)

  31. WOW...lovely photo!!! Love the background of the graffiti wall, the roof top scenic view!!!

    Great purchase with the bright tangy orange Rebecca Minkoff bag:) Adore those turquoise heels too! I agree there's a lot of trend recycling going on and one of my fave is the color blocking.
