I’m a big fan of Olivia Wilde’s past red carpet looks. My all time favorite was this Marchesa stunner that’s been in the forefront of my mind for the past 3 years. If I ever get married you can bet that I’ll be wearing some variation of that bad boy. Gradient sparkle. Swoon. Olivia’s pretty good at appearing as though she put zero effort into her look all the while looking fiercely chic which us everygirls can all appreciate. Even decently pregs, the woman killed it on the red carpet last Sunday & made me realize I’ve suppressed my positive feelings for turtlenecks for far too long.
While I do love this column dress, it’s a little unrealistic for a person as freakishly clumsy as me. Instead, I opted to recreate this look with separates that are more practical for a semi formal event or a date night out. Dress this look down with chunky statement jewelry or dress it up with more delicate pieces & a stiletto heel.
In other news, two suitcases of shoes & I will be in NYC for the next few days taking on a few new adventures. Make sure you’re following DS on Twitter & Instagram for the inside scoop as I #travelbrilliantly!

Moving into the new place has been werk but the little details are finally starting to come together & after I identify a weekend to spend reupholstering 3 armchairs, my fur bear & I will be all settled.
It’s amazing how outfitting a space can truly make it your own little lady cave you never want to leave. The older I get, the more I realize I’m a homebody in the sense that I’m more than content on my own, with Wendell, at home. No matter what’s on the agenda, I’m always happy to be home. It doesn’t hurt that the new place, unlike the old, is rodent free, isn’t on the Presidential motorcade route, has a newly tiled bathroom that doesn’t flood every night at 10pm, is not missing wooden floor panels, is home to, not one but two, working elevators, & has a kitchen that not only comes with appliances but is roomy enough that I can open my oven all the way. Ah, the little luxuries in life.

You know my feelings about color which is why I’ve been hardcore swooning over this Maggy London dress since the moment I laid eyes on it. It still says, “Come hither, Spring” all the while enabling me to continue wearing my three favorite colors well into the warmer months. I’m definitely on board with these winter florals. Don’t forget, it’s a Nordstrom exclusive so snag it while you can before I buy 6 more.
I can’t live completely colorless so I’ve been sporting this statement ring filled with fun colors & a red lip every now & again to spice things up. To help you ring in the warmer weather, that I can only assume is on its way, I’m giving away a few of my favorite colorful favorites from Stila to one lucky reader!
