Spring lace and brights

I am loving this warmer weather in NYC.  Spring! My second favorite season after Fall. 😉

I am really into lace lately, but done in a new, exciting way. I am seeing tons of tops with lace inserts, jeans with lace detailing, and shirts with hints of lace.  With the neon trend so big right now, I have also seen neon lace everywhere.  You can really make that neon trend pop by wearing a bright see through neon lace top, with a neon bandeau or bralet under it in a different color.  Hmm, I may try that for my next post.

For today, I decided to wear this awesome short sleeved crochet lace top from Forever 21. It’s super lightweight, and I love the design.  This top would also be perfect to wear with just a bralet or bandeau underneath, as mentioned before, but it was a little chilly that day, so layered it with a lightweight tank top, also from Forever 21. My bright, chunky accessories offset the white lace. I like to sometimes wear an outfit in plain colors, and brighten it up with accessories. Of course, my Neon Cambridge Satchel is the ultimate showstopper.  It brightens any outfit, and I get stopped on the street constantly while wearing it! Such a great investment, and so affordable! Lastly, my super comfortable beige and orange Sam Edelman wedge sandals that I bought were the highlight of my week!  So chic and gorgeous! Purchase them here!

Turquoise and Leather

We are experiencing that “in between” weather…..you know….where you aren’t sure if it’s Winter or Spring?  I wore my leather jacket today because I am endlessly optimistic that the weather will be warm, and stay warm.  But, as you can probably tell, it got cold. 🙁 I always carry around a Love Quotes Scarf with me, just in case a situation like this arises. They are light weight enough to stuff in your purse, but keep you warm when you wrap them a couple of times around your neck. Great quality! Glad I had it to thrown on over my thin shirt and leather jacket.  As you can see, I am never without my Alexander Wang Rocco bag. It’s perfect for wearing cross body, and grabbing on the go. I am so glad I got the rose gold hardware. It literally goes with everything, and the color really pops. Shopbop still has the same one I have with the rose gold hardware! Grab it before it’s too late!

Happy Holidays!!! Have a very “bloody” Christmas! ~From Julie and Chris

It’s a tradition for my boyfriend Chris and I to come up with fun and outlandish ideas for our Christmas Cards every year.  This year we decided to do a “True Blood” theme.  We are huge fans of the show, and we thought a bloody tribute to our favorite show about Vampires was the perfect way to wish happy holidays to our friends and family, in our signature style.  😉 The photo shoot was TONS OF FUN, with our good friends Melia and Angel helping us set up the shots, and also play a few roles in the photos.  I thought it would be fun to share these shots with all of you.  Hope you enjoy them!!

Happiest and bloodiest of holidays……xoxoxo
