Spending a weekend in Newport, RI is always filled with delicious meals, fun finds, lots of walking and dreaming of owning a boat. Last weekend we decided to head down for some photography and had a wonderful time. While most of the harbor was still empty of boats (yachts), there were some sail boats taking advantage of the wind and sunny skies. We managed to get a room at a quaint Inn (America’s Cup Inn) enabling us to get some sunset shots. Here are my favorite (albeit some whimsical) moments of the weekend that are genius in their own right.
As the warmer weather of spring fast approaches, it’s easy to forget that our winter makeup habits are also due for lighter variations. This spring, tangerine hues are making a big splash. To lighten up your makeup routine for the warmer weather and play up those colors, here are items I like to use especially this time of year. This look will make you feel polished all day and can easily transition from office to outdoor evening gatherings.
It’s alreay been a year that my fashion & baking blog has been up. Hard to say where the time went. While I’ve slowed down a bit to do some writing, I’m looking forward to new exciting posts for the spring/summer seasson! Here is a look back on some of my favorite photos over the first year of Couture and Cannoli Cafe. Hope you enjoy!
There’s no better time to talk about winter whites than right after a blizzard! Warm up to this cozy color of Mother Nature’s winter white palette and add a little (my fave) faux fur luxe. Here are three looks that take the simple to simply chic.
First look: Pair with skinny jeans and a cozy sweater, this vest is the perfect piece for a casual dinner date. The hood gives a nod to chic comfort and style, while the fur boots and chain bag pull this outfit together. Uncomplicated meets white-night classy.
Second look: I love the faux fur wrap collar. Are you headed to a mountain resort? This jacket is perfect for day-to-dinner. They stylish walking boots will keep your fashionable feet moving forward. (Key: always look casual elegant, not like you’re shoveling snow.) And paired with a cross shoulder-strap bag in the same hues, you’re ready to hit quaint shops with a cup of hot chocolate in hand.
Third look: This is the go-to jacket. I love the detachable faux fur hood. Take a winter walk, then meet the girls for brunch. Warm and classy you cannot go wrong with a perfect winter white ‘puff’ jacket. To compliment this look, I paired it with cool all weather boots and a larger bag to hold essentials – sunglasses, gloves, water. Attractive with lost of style, your inner fashionista is rocking the winter weather!
