okay, so maybe i am being a bit unrealistic

because i am loving the practicality of this green dress, i decided to show another way to wear this look. this option happens to be a bit more expensive. i would never spend $500+ on a necklace and jacket. well, maybe i would. but this option is seriously so, so, so, so fabulous.

juicy couture, drama beaded necklace-$198

j.crew, nadja bomber jacket-$325
uhhh, so annoying this is $300+

a day off work is dangerous...

i have been in the horizontal position all day trying to get rid of a sinus infection. boo. however, throughout today i have had plenty of time to do some thinking. or coveting....

here is what has been on my mine....

english setter puppies
if only we had a bigger backyard...

my upcoming trip to san fran with my better half...

my mother-in-laws irresistible lemon bars...

snuggling under a luxurious cashmere burberry blanket...

doing a complete overhaul of our house. and making it look like the cover of house beautiful every month. or least trying to remember to drop my subscription card in the mail....

gansta gold

so the title is a bit misleading but yes, this post is completely and totally devoted to gold watches. if you were to tell me 10 years ago i would ever want, let alone own a gold watch, i would have thought that you lost your mind. but, times have changed and now just about everyone has incorporated one into their wardrobe. a friend of mine is currently searching for one and requested i did a little research. my fav is probably the first one by michael kors. i love the unexpected, unusal shape. so, if your budget is not allowing for cartier or rolex at the moment, try and chose one listed below for all budgets!

michael kors, midsized cushion watch-$250

marc by marc jacobs, goldtone stainless steel bracelet-$250

phillip stein, bracelet watch-$550

fossil, gold plated bracelet-$125

coach, hamptons watch-$398
ok, i know it's not completely gold, but it is timeless...

freelook, oversized watch-$250

burberry, gold ip watch-$495
