Outfit: Rose Colored Glasses


When: Monday, January 6th, 2014

Where: Santa Barbara


Sigh... Married life. Three days after getting hitched, Alex and I took off on our blissful "mini-moon" -- a petite honeymoon up the California coast. First stop was Santa Barbara... You know, right after we stopped through the Camarillo Outlets and hit up Kate Spade for a new robins egg blue wallet. Despite the fact that it was early January, the weather was absolutely perfect and it felt so good to hang out by the water just us two, especially now that all the wedding madness was behind us.



To mark the occasion, I made sure to do a little post-wedding shopping before we hit the road. I love the rosy coral color this outfit embodies. I kind of feel like it could become my signature, you know? If the clothes make the man, maybe this rosy look will give me a rosy outlook. (See what I did there?) I centered my entire outfit around this amazing color. I just so happened to find this dreamy baby pink MARC by Marc Jacobs bag at TJ Maxx the night before we left. I was supposed to be looking for PJs when this blushing beauty caught my eye and I knew it was all over. Had to be mine. Period. Paired with this Cynthia Rowley dress, it's just enough pink to make me feel urber-girly without feeling like I'm going to start puking sparkles.


The watch and shoes and mementos from our wedding. Alex gave me this lovely Kate Spade bracelet watch for Christmas to wear on our wedding day to match my gold dotted keds. They might be a bit matchy-matchy, but I think they are perfectly me! To top the whole thing off, I added this bomb.com floral bomber which I found at my local Urban Outfitters Supply Store for suuuuuper cheap. More on that later...
