Happy Memorial Day from the East Coast! How are you spending the day? I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend with family and eating tons of ribs and macaroni salad. I just love the East Coast. Everything is so pretty and lush and green this time of year. I wore this look yesterday for a wedding in New Jersey and it was absolutely perfect for a summer wedding. The bell sleeves and length were just perfectly classy but still cute. I added a heeled sandal since it's much too hot here right now for anything closed toe. (92 degrees!) These pink sunglasses are my absolute favorite and only 11 dollars (WHATTTT!?) You can find them on Zero UV. I've been wearing them literally every day because they're fabulous. Best yet, this dress is on sale until the end of today ONLY- French Connection is having an epic Memorial Day sale on their site--- literally everything is 30% off if you use the code FC30MR.

Happy Shopping, and enjoy the rest of your holiday! I'll have the rest of my photos from this weekend up next on my travel column. 

xo,

Genevieve

Pantone's colors for 2016, Serenity and Rose Quartz are everywhere right now, and I've certainly found my favorite in Rose Quartz. Whether it's hats, dresses, or bags (like the one I've featured here from Flat Iron) I just keep reaching for the color pink! Pink is always tricky to wear, it can look much too frilly or gaudy if not styled correctly. I find that I usually like to anchor pink with black, or a dark grey. (I did this also in a post from last year, Think Pink.) It's a great way to have masculine and feminine colors meet each other. Think James Dean meets Barbie, ha! For this outfit I also am sporting my new favorite Page boy hat that I can't help but wear all of the time. While I still love my fedoras, it's a fresh silhouette of hat that has open a whole new realm of possibilities of outfits. I love the unexpected edge it gives even a t-shirt and jeans look.

I also find it looks great with a turtleneck or mock neck a la Kate Moss (below)

 

...Or as I've styled it in these photos here! For this series, I also did an alternate version with no hat and a pair of lace up heels I've been living in since I got them on sale at Nordstrom.

For the shoot, I met with Jasmine Ayala in Beverly Hills. She did an amazing job of capturing the gorgeous aesthetic of the Rodeo Drive area at twilight. Of course, I couldn't resist doing some shopping while we were there too! Let me know what you think of the look, and tell me how you're wearing Rose Quartz this year, too!

Being it is October, which just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness month, I decidedly shot this pretty in pink look with photographer Michele Andersen. With pastels being all the rage for fall this year, and pink always being one of my favorite colors anyhow, this post made perfect sense to put together. Knowing many who have either died or battled with cancer, it is a subject for me that hits close to home.  For that reason I raised money and rode in Cycle for Survival last year, and I plan on wearing pink ALL October.

That being said, one of my favorite things to do is mix and match masculine and feminine pieces. For this particular post I mixed this cotton candy pink jacket I bought from Zara last year with an 80's vintage leather pencil skirt I found at the Melrose Trading Post for just $25 dollars. For additional urban effect I paired the look with the most perfect leather booties I have found all season from Stuart Weitzman and my new favorite Rebecca Minkoff backpack. This fierce little backpack is not only super versatile, but when purchased at Bloomingdale's (which is where I purchased mine) in the month of October, gives back to breast cancer as well. I love fashion for a good cause. Check out the full look below. Oh, and F Cancer !!
