This is one of those FASHION FRIDAYS  where day turned into night mid shoot..  in a park full of elderly eastern Europeans playing chess on the park benches..so the sight of two semi youngsters with camera and flash was very exciting :)..  Needless to say we had an audience.. kinda fun.
This is my version of Color Blocking..I am counting the red lips as a color in this attempt to color block.. when one thinks of color blocking pastels are usually not really part of the equation..  But I make my own rules!!
THE BLAZER
Pretty much my summer staple.. It works with everything..and I wear it with everything!!  I have two other very similar versions that I wear a whole lot too. 
THE JEANS
Saw them at H&M.. super cute and very retro..  Love the high waist and the slight conservative nature of them.. They kinda make me feel like a 1970’s mom when I wear them.. I know strange..but I had to share that.
THE EARRINGS
Vintage Chanel clip-ons..they hurt like hell!!..but what can you do.  I just wear them in two hours segments.  Two hours on..one hour off..two hours on ..one hour off.. you get it..
THE LIPS
One of the best purchases I have ever made.. The perfect bright matte red!!

THE NAILS
The tone of this Nars Gold is just dreamy.. nice and subtle…
THE BRACELET
Who can resist a pink heart!!
THE RING
If you are a FASHION FRIDAY regular you know that I wear this ring ALL THE TIME!  ..nuff said.
THE BAG
Stella from a couple seasons ago..still one of my faves!  I can put so much unnecessary but oh so necessary stuff in it..ladies you know exactly what I mean.
THE COMPACT
It was a one year Stuff She Likes anniversary gift.. It’s a company called Les Tai Tai..  Click here for the one I have..  Super awesome because there are lights built in!!  
Alright Beautiful people!!  Have a stellar weekend!!
