Festival Ready

In high school I went through a “hippie” stage.  I traded in all of my Coach handbags and mini skirts for grateful dead tie-dye tees and hemp jewelry.  My mother hated it.  However, the phase was short lived once I realized I was shunned by my fellow “hippies” for wearing pink lipstick.  My mother rejoiced.  And while you will never see me in anything resembling a Jerry Garcia dancing bear again you will see me embrace those bohemian ways every once in a while, especially when festival season begins.  Pink lipstick still applies…always.  truly, MKR  

P.S.  As a 30-something festival go-er, while hidden I am wearing shorts under this tunic.

We All Scream For Ice Cream

So this was probably the hardest couple photos I’ve ever had to pose for.  Let me walk you through why from top to bottom.  Photo 1, pure jubilation to try Jeni’s ice cream.  I love ice cream.  Like love.  Photo 2, taste testing at least 10 flavors.  Photo 3, I’m giving Chelsey the death stare because she’s making me take pics instead of eating said ice cream.  Photo 5, thinking just one more smile till I get to devour this cone.  And devour it I did.  So yes, these were the hardest few photos I’ve stood still for, but at least I stood in the comfiest pants I own.  Like no joke, bought them in 4 colors and will be wearing them all summer, plus they’re on sale.  Anyway…yay for ice cream, double yay for Jeni’s Ice Cream, and triple yay for stretchy pants to eat ice cream in!  truly, MKR

As anxious as I am for spring to arrive for good, I can’t say I’m not just a tad happy about the current cold front blowing through town.  Reason being, I get to layer up and take my favorite winter essentials, namely my Three Floor coat (best purchase every), for one last spin.  And yes when you live in the South your winter essentials become short sleeved coats.  Long live the South!  truly, MKR

White Out

If there was one other color in my closet that would rival black it would be white.  And while some shy away from white until the sun is in full force now wearing white all year round is more popular, and easier than ever.  Case in point, my uniform of boyfriend jeans paired with my favorite Equipment blouse and J.Crew coat.  A look that can take me from day to night with a simple switch up of accessories, and a look that is easy to pull off.  So tell me, do you wear white all year round or wait for Memorial Day?  Happy almost weekend Loves!  truly, MKR

Not to rub salt in any of you Northerner’s wounds (I’m from the North trust me I get it), but Spring has sprung here in the A.  So I decided to take full advantage and bask in all of the sun’s glory by beginning to plot my warm weather essentials with a little pop of color from Kendra Scott.  I’ve been a Kendra Scott fan for awhile now (I’ve got THESE, THESE, and THIS in my collection), her jewels are of such great quality and walk the line of fun but classic so well.  And her Skylar neon yellow earring and new Adriana abalone shell necklace is by far my current go to pieces.  You see I wear a lot of black so I depend on pops like this to well liven up the monotone if you will.  Oh, and did you  hear she’s going to be opening up shop in Atlanta very soon.  So Loves, what gems will you be wearing this spring?  truly, MKR

P.S.  Can we all give a warm and loving WOM welcome to the crazy talented Chelsey Heidorn.  She snapped all of these spring time shenanigans and you’ll be seeing a lot more of her on the blog.  I love this Creative community I get to call home!!  

P.P.S.  I kind of look like a cop with my Ray-Bans right?  I mean I wouldn’t mess with me.  Ha!

What To Wear With Kate Spade New York

kate spade bridal kate spade bridal kate spade bridal kate spade bridal kate spade bridal

 When it comes to what to wear I like to think outside the bridal palette box.  For me that meant a little LBD with a nod to mod, a stack of wrist candy, and a clutch that felt like it was designed with this celebration in mind.  And by now you’ve got to know just how much I love a pink lip and Ms. Mejerle gave me the pinkest of  pouts.  Which, by the way, she’ll be talking all about tomorrow.  Anyway, bottom line is this…ladies it’s your party and you should wear what you want to.

P.S.  On an un-related, but completely relatade side note big huge congrats, cheers and “ohs and ahs” to my partners in crime Rustic White and the launch of their new website.  I mean could it be any more gorgeous!?  So much love, inspiration and talent in every photograph.  Love you guys!

All That Glitters

My holiday attire can be summed up in two words…festive and feminine.  And this year is no exception.  With a full lady-like skirt from Tibi, satin shoes, and a plethora of pearls I’ll be trimming the tree in style.  Though I haven’t decided yet on which shoe (leopard or crystals) either will work.  Oh and I plan to replicate this outfit to ring in 2014 however I’ll be switching up the sweater for my signature black and white gingham men’s shirt and a major statement necklace.  So do you pull out all the stops for Holiday dressing?  truly, MKR

Tibi skirt  ||  Moschino pearl collar sweater  ||  Tory Burch Aria bow heels (ON SALE!)  ||  Louboutin leopard heels  ||  Kotur bubble glitter clutch  ||  Kate Spade NY all wrapped up bracelet (I also love THIS one)  ||  Kate Spade NY black stud earrings

Cold Hands Warm Heart…The Clothes

I’m not going to lie, one of the best parts of this whole shoot was being able to dress so many different people.  Well that and who I got to dress them in.  The epitome of cozy, layered and stylish.  The forever classic brand.  Gap and Old Navy.  And while I could go on and on about why I chose what I chose, and how you should never be afraid to mix patterns, especially patterns like camo, gingham and leopard as I consider them more a neutral than a pattern, I think I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.  truly, MKR

P.S. Big, big hugs to Diana Shelton of Stila Cosmetics who got us all camera ready.  I’m still obsessing over the Magnificent Metals you put on my eyes.  Obsessed.
