While browsing through the aisles of Michael’s last week, I came across the cutest mini donut pan.  Too scared to attempt to deep fry anything, I quickly thought of making baked donuts.  As a novice baker, these are much more up my alley.  With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, what could be more perfect than mini baked donuts with the most adorable little lip and heart sprinkles!?  Not much, in my opinion.

Hat: H&M. Coat: Ann Taylor (c/o). Top: Zara. Jeans: Old Navy (c/o). Booties: Nine West (old). Handbag: Balenciaga.

 

This oh-so-pretty hat is one of those pieces that I knew had to be mine as soon as I spotted saw it while strolling through H&M.  The soft wool texture, perfect-shade-of-grey, and sparkly crystal embellishments were all screaming my name.  I was actually wearing this perfectly coordinating outfit when I purchased this pretty hat, just another reason it was meant to be.  The tags were off and it was already in place upon my wavy tresses before I could say “I don’t need a bag” to the cashier.

 

 

 

Radiant Orchid, Pantone 2014 Color of the Year

Pantone_Radiant_Orchid_Color_of_the_Year

 

As you are probably already aware, Pantone (the global authority on color), named Radiant Orchid the color of the year for 2014.  Described by Pantone as an “enchanting harmony of fuchsia, purple and pink undertones”, Radiant Orchid is a “captivating purple, one that draws you in with its beguiling charm”.  Charm me that indeed. As a self proclaimed girly-girl (and one who’s favorite color has been purple since childhood), Radiant Orchid is right up my alley.

 

Shown in many designer collections during the Spring 2014 Runway shows, Radiant Orchid will be everywhere in stores this Spring, and I can’t wait.  It’s already popped up in the form of accessories, and I’m sure a lot more clothing pieces will be available shortly.  Here are a few Radiant Orchid pieces that I have my eye on that are currently in stores.
