En Route




BCBG bikini, F21 shorts, Pucci scarf, LOVECOCO bracelets

All packed and ready to go! The boy and I are leaving tomorrow to embark on new adventures in Europe.  We'll be visiting 8 different places so packing light was pretty much impossible.  I really didn't need to pack 3 pairs of shorts in bright solids but since I couldn't decide among coral, yellow, and turquoise, all 3 it is!  Italy will surely inspire me and Turkey will be unforgettable. And the Greek Islands... what can I say! I hope to come home relaxed, renewed and ready to take on the world.

I'll be micro-blogging throughout my trip. Follow my journey on Twitter & Instagram @CarolinaCFON :)

Spring with Stuart

 
Zara tweed jacket and shorts, Express blouse, Stuart Weitzman shoes 

Stuart Weitzman, that is! I finally found the perfect pair of Mary Janes! The 'Capsize' from Stuart Weitzman's spring 2012 truly had me at Hello with its classic and feminine shape. Although they also come in black and mint green, I opted for the neutral and very versatile color 'blush'.  The best part about them is the modern and striking silver cap-toe on the blush patent leather.  I'm absolutely in love with these beauties! Complimenting the outfit are a few bracelets hand-made by yours truly.  I've been doing a lot of experimenting with jewelry-making lately. Working mainly with pearls, I've been busy creating both classic and fun pieces including the ribbon wrapped bracelets pictured below (in peach-coral and mauve). I'll be doing a full post on my pearl creations very soon. I can't wait to share them with you!

J.Crew opens in Vancouver





Last week, I had the pleasure of attending the J.Crew opening party in Vancouver.  It was lovely to get a first look at the brand new store before it officially opened to the public the following day on April 25th.  The beautifully decorated 2-floor store displayed their fresh and colourful current spring/summer collection.  The design geniuses behind the brand were in presence: Tom Mora, head of women’s design and Frank Muytjens, head of men’s design.  They mingled with a room full of Vancouver's most stylish media and fashion crowd. It was so great to see some familiar faces and I'm glad I got to catch up with Lisa from Solo Lisa. It looks like I'll be a regular at this store as I'm already looking forward to my next visit!
