I am so excited to see Powder Blue in all of my favorite stores this season. It’s such a gorgeous color and a perfect alternative if you are not into the very pastel colors of Spring. It has the perfect amount of softness, yet doesn’t completely wash you out!

 

Do you live in the Raleigh/Durham area? Make sure to stop by Nordstrom at Streets of Southpoint tonight for the TOPSHOP event! I will be there from 6-8pm. We can shop, talk fashion and have a lot of fun! See you there!

My husband works a pretty demanding schedule – so when he has a free day, we pack our day with as much as we possibly can! Whether it be errands or something we enjoy, it usually involves bouncing around town.

 

This past Saturday I wanted to fit in Yoga, lunch, errands and a hike. The weather was gorgeous and I wanted to get as much time in outside as possible. Well I know outfit choices never concern Keith – but for me, what can I wear that I would be comfortable and functional in while moving from various different activities?

 

With the help of Athleta – I found a pair of pants from their “City Pant” collection that I could pair with different items in my closet that would help me move from activity to activity. Whether indoor or out – these pants were fashionable, yet functional.

 

Starting my day with Yoga by the lake…

These pants allowed me to do whatever I needed to do – paired with the right shoes and/or accessories – it was easy to transition on the go!

Last week I was in San Diego for my best friend’s wedding. I wanted to share some of my favorite photos from my first trip to San Diego! The texture, the people, the food – it was all so wonderful!

Mia Maree Trina Turk 11

 

I had an opportunity to sit down and chat with Trina Turk before her appearance at Belk and The Junior League of Raleigh’s Fashion Forward Event earlier this month. In my opinion, Trina is a down to earth, engaging and passionate business woman. Talking to her was easy and she is definitely a girl after her own dream. What made it even more fun, I was able to talk to her with my fellow Raleigh blogger Nikki.

Here are a few snippets of our conversation -

In regards to knowing when she wanted to design - “I grew up sewing. I wanted more clothes, so the solution was to make my own. I would create a garment over and over again in different colors and prints.”

 

In regards to her brand - “The industry demanded the print in both apparel and interior. I have loads of print but this has lead to brand recognition without seeing the label first! Of course the California (home) had a lot to do with my color inspiration.”

In regards to her workday - “I try to workout 4 days a week. I try to do it first thing in the morning and then I start my workday a little later. I get settled into my work day by reading, most often Women’s Wear Daily.” 

 

In regards to a must staple this season - “A white shirt. I believe it has been a long time since a classic white shirt has been important. Chambray is also having another moment this spring!”

 

In regards to what she does not walk out the door without - “Sunglasses! I also like to layer on my jewelry, both vintage and new!”

 

Here are a few other shots of the fabulous Belk event including the fashion show that concluded the event and the delicious treats that were passed around. I want to congratulate the Junior League of Raleigh and Belk on putting such a classic, fun event together!
