Trina Turk for Banana Republic

Trina Turk just came out with a fun, summer collection for Banana Republic. I love Trina's classic shapes, but whimsical and colorful patterns and designs. They are perfect for summer.
Here are some of my favorites!

 Her bright pink and orange Swirl Tunic dress is perfect for a day at the office or a Saturday morning Farmer's Market adventure!

This one shoulder silk cocktail dress reminds me of backyard pool parties! It also comes in Coachella Print.

I LOVE this pink, silk tie halter! Would go beautifully with a light navy cardigan. I absolutely must find these  patterned shorts! I couldn't find them on the website, but maybe that's because everyone else wanted them too?

She was also able to do a line of fabulous accessories. 
The turquoise clasp on her Tomato box clutch adds that elegant yet fun element I love about her stuff.

And how fun is that enamel cocktail ring!?

Black Tie

Tomorrow night I'm attending the black tie party for a movie my company recently finished. While, in California "black tie" can mean bear suit (don't ask. true story.) I'm excited to get dressed up and put on some sparkles! I'll let you know how it goes.

Summer Dresses

There's nothing simpler or easier than a summer day dress. I'm looking forward to taking a few to the other side of the pond with me as they don't take up too much room and can easily be weather adjusted with a cardigan or jacket.

One of the things I cannot stand about them is that they're, more often than not, over $50. Really? I'm going to spend $100 on a piece of jersey cotton? If it was really cute I might consider taking the bait, I mean I am a girl with a soft spot for cute clothes, but I haven't really found one that rocks my world.

I HAVE found a several really cute ones at Target that land around the $20 price range. That means I was able to get 3 for the price of 1!!

I have a closet full of coral, but I really can't get enough of this color. It pairs nicely with brown, black or navy and it's girly. I've been wearing this with my old school Gap jean jacket and gold accessories.

I got this one in turquoise.
The halter top makes it a little more fun and beachy for the summer!

This dress is my favorite. It is super comfortable to wear and has pockets! I got it in olive and navy and, oddly, I'm struggling to find a cardigan in a dark navy to go over it!?

I also bought this polo dress from J. Crew earlier this spring and I'm officially obsessed. I'm not sure how the long sleeves will hold up in the desert heat of Moroccan summers, but it's perfect for chilly San Francisco!

Hail to The Queen

The Queen of the WASPs one might say, is celebrating her 60th year on the thrown this weekend. People magazine has posted a gallery of her stunning style throughout the years. I was, quite honestly, a little surprised. Her Majesty's personal style is overshadowed by her daughter and granddaughter in-law's style, but when you take a moment to look at it she is quite and elegant and tasteful lady herself.

This picture reminded me of Princess Catherine's look at the Sun Military Awards last December,
