for the love of pink

sometimes i shy away from anything too trendy- and then sometimes i totally embrace it.  this spring you guys are asking for PINK J Brands- and I'm placing an immediate order for these sweet jeans first thing monday morning!  

a quick look from around the web...

i'm digging the pale pink variety paired with a neutral shoe- like cameron here

 

these shoes are crazy awesome (grrr... and that BAG... again)

 

 

 

 

should arrive later this week!

tennis nostalgia + neon

if you've ever spent time in Holiday or have been reading the blog- you know that i (we) are often inspired by vintage fashion, interiors, lifestyle images, etc.  when we set out to construct a new piece for our signature collection- we almost always start "way back when".  vintage is often our MUSE, as we love re-working a 30 year old garment or creating a new one from a 1960's pattern (for example).  right now- i'm obsessing over images of old-school tennis everything.  when the weather is warm and i have a hint of a tan- i will wear white spring/summer dresses like crazy- and if it comes with a crisp collar and some pleats- i'm doubly pleased.  and if it's a tad chilly i'll happily layer with a cable knit sweater- maybe this season in neon "tennis ball" yellow.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

because neon is such a trend right now and you may not want to indulge head to toe (i've been painting my toes in brights and also wearing a neon bra lately) here a few easy ways to experiment with modern day tennis whites and neon yellow...

a skinny belt 

 

a heel or even a shoelace on your favorite tennis shoe

 

on your bottom half

 

at home...

 

for a less committed neon home-moment, paint a piece of canvas in your favorite bright.  i may do this for my kitchen.

this LIGHT!

 “Over the great bridge, with the sunlight through the girders making a constant flicker upon the moving cars, with the city rising up across the river in white heaps and sugar lumps all built with a wish out of non-olfactory money. The city seen from the Queensboro Bridge is always the city seen for the first time, in its first wild promise of all the mystery and the beauty in the world.” 
― F. Scott FitzgeraldThe Great Gatsby

(i recently sent an email to photographer, Irene Suchocki, asking if i could use her images (above)- because they all hold a certain wonder to me.  she said yes and i was thrilled!)
