07/18/2016 Darling of the Day: Gwyneth Paltrow in Head-To-Toe Blush!


While summer (for me) is all about a good dress & sandals, I’ve been thinking a whole lot about summer outfits that go beyond the comfy Americana look of a tank & cut-off shorts (an ensemble that never really suited my shape to begin with). However, in an effort to fill my brain with as much fashion as possible (an excellent escape plan for when life is throwing a lot of heartache your way), I’m a little obsessed with Gwyneth Paltrow‘s head-to-toe blush outfit in a blouse & pants by Michael Kors with Chloe Gosselin sandals (shop similar here). The actress & goop entrepreneur made a recent appearance to promote her organic Juice Beauty collection while in Toronto, looking effortless & chic in the pastel hue with minimal jewelry.

However, I’m impressed to see so many blush options out there, while keeping a budget in mind, for misses, plus, or petites separates to inspire Gwyneth’s look for when you’re at the office, headed to brunch with family, or a day time party event. Wearing blush as a base color also works for a multitude of accessories options, such as metallics like rose gold, gold, & silver. Also, blush is a luxe foundation for other colors & prints to pop against.

7/11/11 Darling of the Day: Jayma Mays in Pieces from Ann Taylor LOFT!


Calabasas has more going for it now than those pesky Kardashian girls.  Here we have the very lovely star of Glee, Jayma Mays in an outfit straight off the website for Ann Taylor LOFT!  I love it when celebrities wear affordable & relatable looks from places that we everyday people shop in!

The roll sleeve camp shirt is the perfect color for her complexion & would love paired with dark denim jeans for a casual day or a floral pencil skirt for the office.  I love skirts that have contrasting stripes like this tie dye printed skirt, which to me, just calls for a bright yellow or red scoop neck tee tucked in with some white or neutral espadrilles!

This skirt is very flattering on her petite frame & would look really adorable on any size, especially with a belted over cardigan set & some layered beads!  Also from LOFT is the knotted metal necklace, a classic easy touch to a look that already has enough going on with it, but frames Jayma’s face perfectly!

I was unable to find out who the shoes & ring were designed by (the ring probably being her wedding ring!), so I found these very cute options to help recreate Jayma’s look.  These beaded strappy wedges by Clarks @Zappos are a little pricey for my budget, but get great rating son comfort & are very versatile additions to any summer look, including an eyelet summer dress or with leggings & a tunic.  As for the last piece, I checked out The Limited & found this concave ring which is minimal & hardly even noticeable, but super cute to wear with virtually any look!
