Marilyn Moment

I wore this outfit on a really windy day last week. Needless to say I hope that was my first and last Marilyn moment. What I want to say about this outfit is that I loved the playful skinny stripes on sequined stripes, but all I can really think about is "dear God girl, get in the sun and get a tan on those legs!" For now, enjoy the stripes. Tan will have to be TBD, so stay tuned for coming attractions. Oh also side note... these booties/mules/sandals/slingbacks are AMAZING. I might need them in all colors. First peep toes ever to not give me blisters.

If any of you follow J.Crew on Instagram, you may have seen a similar version of this outfit pop up in your feed.  Once I saw this feature of Sarah Hoover on the J.Crew blog and her photos on Instagram, I had to recreate it from my own closet.  Luck for me, these were all pieces I already owned.  While I never really thought to pair my red wedges with a slouchy tee and fatigue jacket, it definitely works!

Refined & Relaxed

Lauren: H&M Lace Printed Pants (similar here & here), Max Studio Blouse (similar here), Nine West Heels, Ray Ban Aviators

Got a lot of ground to cover today on this Monday. First and foremost, we want to take this time to remember all of the victims from last year's Marathon bombing and also the first responders for their valiant actions during such a chaotic moment in Boston. Whether you're running this year for one of the victims, a charity, or for your love of Boston, we wish you all good luck and give you a lot of credit for your 26.2 mile achievement (I certainly couldn't do it)!

Secondly, hope you all had a great Easter weekend! Easter is actually one of my favorite holidays. It doesn't come with the same pressure as Christmas and there's great food (brunch is my absolute favorite) with great company. I enjoyed spending lots of time with family and also reuniting with my very best friends at home. My friend Lauren (see above) is my go-to DIY & beauty gal. We talk constantly about what new moisturizer or foundation we need to try. We're both wearing our neutral Easter looks; hers being more refined and mine being more relaxed.

Happy Monday everyone!

Hazel & Marie Pearls Necklace c/o, Ray-Ban Sunglasses, FACE Stockholm Lipstick "Peony Pink" ]

I'm continuing the streak of brightly colored pieces here on Confessions of the Glitterati (see one and two). I wore this outfit Sunday to a bridal shower for a very best friend of mine and received raving reviews over the print.  The black background and the vibrant reds and pinks make this dress a perfect transition piece from winter to spring to summer and then back again. I paired it with a long strand of pearls and a denim jacket to keep the look a little more fun.  See below for more printed shifts!
