If you follow me on instagram, you noticed I was in NYC this weekend! Dan and I took an express bus from DC to NYC Saturday morning to meet up with my mom, brother, cousin, and friend Howard. We basically did a blitz tour for the 30 waking hours we were there.
I’m not sure if you noticed, but pineapple-themed clothing, jewelry, shoes, iPhone cases…have been HOT! Maybe because it is a funny-looking yet distinguished and festive fruit, with the aura of a punk rocker with spiky hair.

Since last week’s refreshment was such a hit, I’m doing a continuation of my Old Navy favorites.

The Pink Lady is a 1970’s cocktail. Originally comprised of gin, grenadine, simple syrup, and cream, served up in a martini glass. It is one of those retro cocktails that needs a comeback. Retro button-front skirts are everywhere! Long, short, suede, denim – the list goes on and on. I picked up this one from Forever 21 (last worn in… View Post
