Emerald + Lemon {So Happy Together}

Summer Style: Tropical Emerald Green paired with Bright Neon Lemon Yellow

It seems I'm on a (huge) color kick lately.  What happened to my elegant cloak of ever-versatile black!? Well, whatever.  Color can be quite the vacation.  A vacation from winter, and a soothing opioid holiday from reality (i.e. 100 degree temps, mosquitos... and other icky hot weather invertebrates).  

Clearly, my current fixation with color has arrived at the crossroads of citrus yellow and emerald green. What a happy pair they make! 

P.S. Watch out for a post next week on how to wear that deliciously tropical bustier (um, hellooo, it's $20!)

Resort often takes a back seat when it comes to the opulence of the fashion world.  Though there may be little earth shattering innovation in the designs, this is one of my favorite seasons (right after Spring).  It's refreshing to see easy, wearable things on the runway for a change.  Plus there's always a delightfully invigorating injection of color.

This season I spy a menagerie of pretty surface detail - from eyelet and burn-outs to sheers with embroidery - balanced by relaxed shapes and solid hues.  And I'm really into this color palette of bright white and blush with pops of sky blue.

Office Zest

Colorful and whimsical accessories to brighten up your office this summer

It's lovely how everything gets bright and peppy in the summer, but I don't want to work unless I can have a flamingo on my desk!  And a mug that clearly states how much I want to see everyone in the morning, too. Hah!

The illustrated notepad and anti-social mug are both items from my design shop, the Rive Gauche Craft boutique.  Speaking of which, I recently plunged in with a whole bunch of CSS and gave it a little re-do.  Have a look and tell me what you think?  Furthermore, stay tuned for some exciting new announcements coming soon from Rive Gauche Craft to you....
