Time to Pack…

Heading to my Shangri-La on Wednesday.

I have always had a love affair with New York City.

I used to go there with my mother at Christmas, it is our special place.

As a little girl I dreamed of living there when I grew up-

as an artist, a museum curator, a fashion designer.

Didn’t happen!

Luckily, I am now able to travel to New York for work.

I am traveling with one of my “besties”!

She is letting me tag along on another Poppy’s buying trip.

We always have a wonderful time,

a little work (actually a lot but it doesn’t feel like work),

lots of vino and good laughs!

The Big Apple better watch out!

What to pack….

1. A great bag

Tom Ford Medium Petra Bag

2. Cozy shirt for traveling

J. Crew Denim Shirt

3. Easy layers to wear to market

It is freezing in there.

Pretty Top and a Blazer

4. Great Pair of Jeans.

I love these a little worn paired with the Chanel Inspired Blazer

J. Crew Skinnies- Love

3. Comfy Ballet Flats for lots of walking 

I really hate flats but for these I’ll make an exception

Christian Louboutin Ballet Flats

4. Great Day to Night Outfit-

Dressy blouse paired with a blazer and some edgy jewels

I love this look.

4.  Something for dinner and possibly dancing…

Love the Sparkle…

5. Some Kick Ass Shoes

Giuseppe Zanotti Metal Counter Sandals

6. And of course a little inspiration.

Happy Shopping!

New White Rules…

I know Labor Day has passed but do not put away your white jeans just yet!

I love my white jeans allll winter.

With my riding boots. With big slouchy sweaters. With a structured tweed blazer and a great scarf.

My other fall and winter must haves….

Winter white slacks, wool coat and pencil skirts with opaque tights.

Happy Shopping!

Olympic Spirit

Olympic Spirit



I can not wait for tonight!
I absolutely love the uniforms that Ralph Lauren designed for the US Olympic Team

My favorite part about the olympics is getting to know the athletes.
They have so much drive and determination.
Imagine what it takes to become an Olympian?

Going to the Olympics is definitely on my bucket list.
I did not live in Atlanta when the games were here so I missed them.

I decided today’s post should be…

A) An outfit to wear in London this week if I was there and sitting next to Princess Kate.
I think we could be friends. She would like me!

B) All of my favorite British Designers
Alexander McQueen
Stella McCartney
Burberry

Let The Games Begin!

Vacation

Vacation



Heading South to the Florida Keys on Thursday for some much needed R&R.


When planning our vacation I had three rules-


1. No sightseeing
2. No agenda
3. No fancy clothes


I truly want to veg, read at least two books and drink lots of beverages that have umbrellas in them!
That is it, nothing else!


I am packing very light, at least I’m going to try.
This is a very difficult task for me.


I got this bikini at Old Navy over the weekend.
It was $20! No lie.
It is a bright orange with gold rings and I love it, who needs to spend $200 on a bikini?


Add a couple sundresses, sunglasses and a hat and I’m out the door.


I bought the anchor necklace the other day and I love it.
Shhh, don’t tell my mom but I’ve always wanted a small anchor tattoo (I spent a lot of my childhood on a boat if you are wondering the significance).
This will have to do the job.


Happy Monday, so thrilled about my three day work week!
XOXO,

PS. New website is almost finished!
I can’t wait…..

Happy Holiday Weekend CHICKs

Woot Woot, I love a three day weekend!
I am heading South for the weekend right into a tropical storm but you can’t rain on this CHICKs Parade!
I am so happy to see friends and family and celebrate my brother’s upcoming wedding!
No American holiday is complete without some Stars and Stripes-
Show your true colors, Nautical Stripes are a wardrobe must!
And if you don’t like stripes just plain ‘ole red, white and blue will do!

I’m borderline stalkerish with this CHICK.
I want everything in her summer collection. 
I love the California simplicity.
I want to meet her. 
I read where she lives near the beach and rides her bike everywhere.
 Her mother is a movie producer. 
She is beautiful and sexy.
And just plan cool! 
Great line, check it out!
XOXO,
