Sunset Color: Orange, Blue & Pink


Summer vacation is upon us and as the heat picks up I look forward to days spent at the beach with the family and enjoying colorful sunsets together!  We enjoy sitting on the beach and watching the sun go down into the ocean all the while leaving a trail of orange, pink and blue sky behind.  And that's what I had in mind when putting together this outfit: the sunset colors of orange, blue and pink.  Having recently acquired these shorts, the shirt, necklace and amazing lipstick I wasted no time in wearing them out.
When Jessica Simpson was married to Nick Lachey and they starred together in their own reality show called the Newlyweds she carried this LV bag in white.  The planet was in love with this bag and the waiting list was miles long.  Of course my name was on the list that seemed never to end.  Just when it seemed I would burst with longing I received this bag for Christmas with the sweetest note from the sweetest friend.  I loved it well for quite a while and then put it gingerly away.  Last week during a mini-closet cleaning I happened upon it.  All the on trend colors of this summer season are represented on this bag and I'm loving the sweet memory of my friend.
Enjoy every day!  (watch a sunset)

  6. I sure remember that bag! My aunt bought it at Saks the day she saw it right there and also an old boss of mine who had NO idea what prices were at LV went in to get it for his wife... He was in quite the pricetag shock when the SA told him the price as he handed over his card...lol!

    Love the necklace and I won't say anything about what is missing on the cuff. Oh you tricked me! Can i eat? Honey....I can put food away like nobody's biz... It's always a delight to read your comments, enjoy the wknd.
