    Transitions

    This week has been full of transitions. Last year Ariyana was in an afternoon preschool program, but this past week she started back at preschool and she has to be there early in the mornings.  Ariyana seems to be doing just fine with her new sleep schedule and is adjusting to her new classroom. But I am the one having a harder time with this new transition. I am so exhausted by the end of day that I have been curling up in bed with a book or my laptop around 9 pm and I am sound asleep by 10!

    This week I also started back at the gym after not being able to work out for a couple of months.  I mixed up my workout routine with running, core fusion, a personal training session, and yoga.  It definitely feels good to be able to transition back to a regular workout schedule.

    And yesterday after work Aneesh and I grabbed dinner at The Capital Grille and headed over to Ariyana's school for Parent's Night. There is really nothing unique or all that interesting about this outfit except that I needed an outfit that would transition from work to dinner to Parent's Night.  I decided to go with a pink silk blouse, a pencil skirt, and a fun polka dot scarf.

    Tiffany & Co. - Part II

    Last week I had the wonderful pleasure of hosting Fashion's Night Out with Tiffany & Co. at the Natick Collection. It was a fun evening filled with shopping, live music, and tons of great food. 

    Of course I couldn't resist and had to try on jewelry while I was there including this love square ring from the new Era collection. It would go perfectly with my new necklace. I also checked out the fragrances, sunglasses, and handbags. One of my favorite items was the brown suede and metallic reversible tote. It is super soft, comes in a variety of colors, and includes a detachable zipper pouch.

    On Friday evening Lani, Lissy, Lissy's sister Angela, Sarah, Marissa, and I attended the Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion Show in New York.  This is a legendary fashion event which has debuted designers Zac Posen, Philip Lim, Rebecca Taylor, Lulu Frost, Milly, and others. This year the show brought together 11 of the hottest rising ready-to-wear and accessory designers including Anne Yee, William Okpo, Sunghee Bang, ace & jig, Eighteenth, and our favorite Jennifer Chun.

    Jennifer Chun's Spring/Summer collection is feminine yet sophisticated and most importantly every single piece is wearable. She uses rich, bold textures mixed with hints of unique patterns to create looks that are unique yet classic. Stay tuned for Jennifer Chun's Spring/Summer collection, but in the meantime be sure to check out her Fall/Winter '11 Collection.

    "Backpack" Necklace

    Yesterday Ariyana was playing around with this beaded necklace and I noticed she put it on in a new and interesting way.  When I asked her why she is wearing her necklace this way she said it was her "backpack" necklace. I am pretty sure she is getting her styling inspiration from the backpack she has been wearing this past week for her first week back at preschool.

    Stylish Things

    A new pair of shoes to take with me tomorrow on my trip to New York City

    MAC Lipstick-Russian Red and NARS Blush-Exhibit A

    Lately I have been experimenting with red blush and red lipstick. Believe me I was skeptical to try this blush because it looks so bright but this shade of red is gorgeous and it gives just the right amount of color and glow. 

    Edie purse

    I have been on the search for a structured and stylish top handle satchel for the fall/winter. So when my sister said she was going to a J.Crew event and could get 25% off I asked her to pick up this bag for me.

    I had a great time hosting Fashion's Night Out last night at Tiffany & Co. I will share more details about this fabulous event with you next week but in the meantime I would like to thank the lovely folks at Tiffany & Co. for a great evening and for the generous gifts.
