We have been having some warm, sunny weather lately so I thought it would be relaxing to sprawl out on a blanket in the grass and enjoy the birds and all the plants in full bloom.  More often than not, I fall back on my favorite bohemian chic looks.  I have a few tops by Binetti that I snagged off Shopbop for 70% off and they are all so gorgeous and silky.  I don't think they sell the Binetti brand anymore, but I will cherish the few pieces I do have because they fit my style so well.  When I put this outfit together for the day I was going for a white/beige/light wash denim color scheme.  I know everyone likes wearing black bike shorts under denim, but I thought why not try some nude colored bike shorts under lighter colored denim.  These patchwork wedges by Miu Miu are ultra comfortable and I love the intricate stitching.  The blue earrings add a nice pop of color and I absolutely love the design on them.  They get a little heavy, but my earlobes rarely get a workout.  My stay on the grass ended with my boyfriend bringing out some strawberries for us to enjoy.

Yesterday we went on a long walk and found a dog named Tux who was lost and about to cross a busy street.  I ran over to him immediately and picked him up because I did not want him to get hit.  I ended up falling in love with him.  He looked very similar to my dog Bella, but bigger.  He was around 20 lbs and I picked him up and checked out his collar while my boyfriend called the numbers on the tags.  I found out later when his owners returned, grateful that we had found him and waited for them, that he was a cockapoo.  I knew he had some poodle in him as I love that poodle coat that never sheds.  Anyway, I was ready to take him home to keep him safe until the owners returned, but luckily I did not have to carry him that far.  As a child I was always bringing lost and stray animals home and I still have that same personality today. 

I got to lay down on our new, soft giraffe rug and decided it would be the perfect backdrop for some photos.  I hope I did these Miu Miu Sparrow Mary Janes justice.  I am in love with these tights I got from Asos last week and I thought the navy and white shoes would look really cool with them.  I adore the heart suspender detail and the color.  I bought them in black as well.  I guess you could say I am doing a little bit of print on print in a more subdued fashion.  Who would have thought hearts and sparrows could mix so well?  I am wearing this tunic as a dress because it is so long and I think the 5 strand pearl necklace was the perfect finishing touch.  I can't wait to style these Miu Mius some more in the future!



Valentino Fairy Tale Sandals

R.J. Graziano Bow and Flower Pendant in Gold - Gift from Boyfriend

My boyfriend was away on business for a week and brought me back these lovely Valentino Fairy Tale Sandals.  He was walking by the Valentino store and saw these shoes in the window.  They are so delicate and the flowers are made of leather and very detailed.  He is always looking out for me when he goes to other cities and bringing me back beautiful designer goodies.  I bought this pretty tulle body con skirt from Vera in many different colors including this nude color, which is right on trend for spring.  I tucked this white silk cami by Tucker (pardon my play on words) into it and added a gold belt, which I think made it look like a one piece outfit or dress.  I added this gorgeous bow and flower necklace to play off the gold of the belt.

Biking is one of my favorite activities so for this shoot we pulled out my townie bike and if you look closely you can see that my toenail polish matches the bike color.  I have a mountain bike as well, but it isn't quite as cute as this starry townie bike.  I wish I had a basket and a bell on my mountain bike!  As you know, I am big into star jewelry so it was only fitting that my townie bike have stars as well.
