Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter

Pacifica Tuscan Blood Orange Body Butter

Since I’ve been showing a little more leg on vacation, and starting to self tan more regularly, I’ve made it a habit to moisturize my skin religiously every day as soon as I get out of the shower. Besides my 100% pure unrefined extra virgin coconut oil I apply at night, I use a lighter product that absorbs more quickly in the day and I’ve recently been stuck on Pacifica’s Body Butter in Tuscan Blood Orange. This is a fabulous natural product that contains high quality ingredients like shea butter, almond and safflower seed oil, and mango butter. The scent is absolutely strong, bright ,and citrusy, with subtle finishing notes of Madagascar vanilla. While this is a thick body butter, I find that it blends well over my legs and arms and doesn’t leave me waiting long to put on my clothes after application. Nourishing enough to be a daily hand cream and body moisturizer, I was using this product non-stop last week on my trip to Kansas City, where I was strutting a little more skin on the hot and humid Midwest days. I just love that this product is paraben-free, cruelty-free, and 100% vegan. Replacing it will be a breeze, too, because this product is thankfully carried at Target!

Feryal Marina Tangerine Leather Cross Body Messenger

Marina Tangerine Leather Cross Body Messenger

Even before tangerine tango was a thing last year as Pantone’s Color of the Year, vibrant orange was always my favorite color. I love everything orange, but especially orange accessories to accent an outfit with. This lovely handbag by Feryal totally caught my attention while perusing the site for new spring accessories and it’s just the right pick-me-up to get you in the mood for warmer, sunnier weather. This gorgeous satchel is perfect for everyday use as it’s equipped with a crossbody strap and plenty of pockets and inner compartments to organize your contents. The leather is a high quality 100% first grain cowhide leather and gives this bag a luxurious textured look. Let’s also not overlook the 24k gold-plated metal hardware, which beautifully compliment the orange. I love the attention to detail in this piece and think it’s a fantastic pick for not only spring but year-round.

Piazza Vita Tote in Tangerine

Piazza Vita Tote in Tangerine

Looking for that carefree carryall tote? I’m currently loving Piazza’s Vita Tote, and the only thing holding me back from purchasing it is deciding on the exact color I want. Perfect for traveling, work, or trips to the farmers market alike, this tote is great because it’s oversized yet manageable.  It’s a slim canvas bag reminiscent of some more expensive designer versions, supported by genuine leather shoulder straps, in your choice of a classic neutral or fun bright shade. At only $49, this is a great bargain for a bag that has just so many uses.

Pro tip: send your friends a free $10 eBags gift card through Embly, which they can use on anything from this Piazza collection!

Hermès Clic H Orange Enamel Bangle

Hermès Clic H Orange Enamel Bangle

I’ve been looking for this piece for months, as it seems no department stores I frequent carry this piece so I may have to defer to an Hermès boutique. Orange is my favorite color, and when I found out the signature designer bracelets came in this shade, I figured  it was just meant to be. But something is stopping me, just a few clicks away from checkout, I’m already feeling the onset of buyers’ remorse. This is such a cute piece but it’s so hard to justify that astounding price tag for just an enamel bangle. So someone please, buy me this!

T by Alexander Wang Linen Silk Jersey Tee in Cayenne

T by Alexander Wang Linen Silk Jersey Tee in Cayenne

Whenever asked the question “if you could wear one designer and one designer only, who would it be?” I always answer Alexander Wang, without a doubt. Whether it’s his signature line, or the more casual T by Alexander Wang, everything is just so me. Practical fabrics, colors easy on the eyes, and smart cuts, it’s just city chic all around. Take this T by Alexander Wang simple relaxed tee as a perfect example. In a linen silk blend, this tee comes in a vibrant cayenne shade that can either be the focal point or supporting role in an outfit.  Perfect with your boyfriend jeans and sunnies for a weekend brunch, or great tucked into a maxi and paired with a fedora for a trip to the farmers market.  This piece is so versatile and cozy, you really don’t even have to think hard of what to pair it with.

We’ve had quite the nice weather streak in the Bay Area as of late, and all I can think of is my next getaway to the beach. I just came across this lovely DVF romper which is the perfect beach coverup, and it’s even 50% off! I love the mix of geometric and organic prints, and of course, it’s in my favorite color, orange. Pairs perfectly with sunnies, a straw tote and those DVF Opal wedges the model has on. Scoop up this summer essential before it sells out!

Dorothy Perkins Apricot Drape Pocket Jacket

Dorothy Perkins Apricot Drape Pocket Jacket

I have been a girl who’s rocked blazers regularly since 9th grade because I was always fond of the professional and polished look it instantly gave any t-shirt or basic tank. Obviously, I am excited that colorful blazers are becoming super popular, easier to find online, and much more affordable. I am absolutely loving this pale apricot orange creamsicle blazer by Dorothy Perkins, a label I’m not too familiar with. Dorothy Perkins’ target demographic is women aged 25-40, but this blazer transcends age groups with its unconventional color and pleating around the waist and cuffs. Can’t you just imagine Kim Kardashian, Lauren Conrad, or Eva Longoria wearing this with distressed denim, strappy heels, a top knot, and oversized shades? That look is just my style, and with just a few sizes left online, I sure hope Dorothy Perkins replenishes their stock so I can add this blazer to my growing collection.
