Blood Oranges & Dusk

Tonight after work I went for a low key dinner at a neighborhood Mexican restaurant where I had a yummy grapefruit margarita followed by a blood orange margarita.  It's days and simple events like this that make me love the summer (well still spring) in NYC.  I feel like everyone is so much more motivated to go out in the nice weather.  It's also so great to sit outside with food and drinks while people watching.

Today I wore  JBrand skinny jeans, a floaty silk top from Forever 21 and my Marc Jacobs Petal to the Metal satchel.

Even though this shirt is from Forever 21, who can sometimes skimp on the details, I feel this shirt is well made and has unique attributes.  I love the swirly pattern on the shirt as well as the second layer of lace that peeks out at the bottom.  Also wore my double finger stone ring I got from a street artisan in Soho.

On my walk to dinner, I couldn't help but notice this beautiful sunset softly illuminating the street.

I also wore my Jeffery Campbell wedges/clogs.  Even though these are really high and make me amazonian, they are surprisingly comfortable and stable to walk in!

In my hair I wore a peach nautical knot headband from Forever 21.  Not going to lie, I fell in love with these headbands when I saw them and at about $3 a pop I got ones in cream (my fav) and black too!
Lastly I wanted to rave about my latest lip balm/gloss obsession - Korres Lip Butter.  These little pots of gloss do feel exactly like creamy rich butter on your lips and really help to moisturize.  Some come with the subtlest hint of color matching to the lid of the pot.  The best part is they come in yummy flavors like mango and pomegranate.  The wild rose is my absolute favorite for a subtle redish gloss lip - looks very similar to your natural color, but better!
