    Day to Night

    Friday was a great day.  I work up early, had a couple of great meetings for work, and then Aneesh joined me for lunch and we worked at a coffee shop for much of the afternoon.  We took advantage of the beautiful day with an evening game of tennis and then took Ariyana with us to dinner at Gaslight.  It was a nice balance of work, exercise, family time, and of course fabulous food and wine.

    And I love it when I can transition and outfit from day to night.  During the day for work I wore this blouse and pants with a black blazer and for dinner I just swapped out the blazer and work bag for this jacket and a small clutch.  Oh and these pants are exact same ones I bought in pink and wore here.  Did I mention I have a problem with buying the same item of clothing in multiple colors?

    Reader Request: Shades of Lip Gloss

    I have had a few readers ask me about the makeup I use so I thought I would start by sharing a few of my favorite lip glosses.  When it comes to makeup I believe less is more. I don't buy a lot of makeup because makeup does not have a long shelf life and I end up using my favorite products over and over again anyway. Also I don't have that many lipsticks because I prefer to wear neutral colored lip glosses most of the time.  But having said that, I am interested in experimenting more with lipstick colors and would love to know if you have any favorite shades of lipstick.

    Neutral Ground

    On Sunday my sister and her fiance treated Aneesh, Ariyana, and me to a wonderful dinner over at Strega on the waterfront.  For dinner I wore these pink pants and a white silk blouse and for the past few weeks these have been my "go to" pants. The pants are comfortable, fun, and a welcome change from all the dark pants hanging in my closet. They are great too because I can dress them up with heels or wear them with flats for a more casual look.  And while I love all the bright colors for the spring I am equally drawn to these softer neutral tones.  I know my mom will like this outfit because for a change I am not wearing black.

    Have you bought a pair of colored pants for the spring/summer?

    Spring 2011 Trend: Top 5 Must Have Shoe Styles

    In case you missed my guest post over at the CoolKids blog yesterday, here is my list of the Top 5 must have shoe styles for the spring/summer.  Now that the weather is warming up, it is the perfect time to evaluate your shoe collection, discard shoes you are no longer wearing, and make space for new and fun shoe styles for the warmer months.

    1. wood platforms
    These chunky shoes are sexy, retro and pair perfectly with the spring 70's trend, neutrals, and florals. They look great with wide-leg jeans, short skirts and dresses.

    2. cork wedges
    Any style of wedges add height which is flattering and best of all they are super comfortable. You can pair these with shorts and short and flowy dresses and skirts.

    3. platform pumps
    These heels are sexy and make your legs look a mile long!  They look great with wide leg jeans pencil skirts, and mini skirts. They are great in a variety of colors but my personal preference is a perfect neutral or nude pair for the spring/summer.

    4. pointy-toe slingbacks
    Kitten heels, pointy flats and slingback are all back on trend for the spring. They look great with flowy skirts, skinny jeans, and fitted dresses. This style of shoe is definitely my favorite for work. They look professional but since the heel is low you can still walk in them.

    5. flat espadrilles
    Instead of ballet flats why not try flat espadrilles for a preppy and casual weekend look? They look great with shorts, cropped pants, and boyfriend jeans.
