It has been forever since I have blogged or worked out, but leave it to Agent Provocateur to create something sexy enough to inspire me to start both again.
I love warm weather. I love beaches. I love neon. I could really do all three- almost all the time. I'm gonna take this cute little swim number as a sign that I better get on the ball and start thinking seriously about building a summer wardrobe (and hitting the gym).
I'm think lots of color (neons of course), prints, denim shorts, sundresses, and killer shades... this is gonna be fun!

So a week from tomorrow I am going to a wedding in Nantucket. For weeks I have been racking my brain about what exactly to wear. The overwhelming response to an informal survey was- Vintage!
Now I'm not really a vintage kind of girl, especially when it comes to clothing. I think this is mainly because I lack the patience to scour the racks for that perfectly fitting, stain free piece and also because I tend to gravitate towards styles that are more modern.
Then I came across this amazing BCBG dress from the runway collection that seemed to marry vintage and modern, neon and pastel (I'm totally obsessed with mint and neon yellow), and be both pretty and edgy at the same time.
Once I found the dress all of the other elements quickly came together. I am beyond excited to rock this outfit and to celebrate the nuptials of my good friend Deja!

For as long as I can remember I have had a love of ethnic and tribal print. For the past few seasons these prints have been de riguer on the runways and it seems Christopher Decarin of Burberry is the latest in a long list of designers to draw inspiration from vibrant African textiles. The Burberry Spring 2012 collection was loaded with covetable printed pieces including an update of the iconic trench coat that I would love to get my hands on.
While lusting after expensive runway pieces is all well and good you need not break the bank to try this trend out. For my look I paired a basic tank with a beautiful wrap skirt from Nneka, but you could easily substitute printed fabric for your local fabric store.
