bon list: pretty pastels and a pop of black

28 05 2009

Hello, and welcome to our newest segment: the Bon List.  Here we’ll be compiling trends, fashion direction and anything else we can fit neatly into one photo post.  We are by no means an authority on style, just sharing with you all what we think promotes the good life.  We didn’t really take retail price into consideration (more of a “lust” versus “must” list) but I’m sure you will be able to find similar looks for less.  Hope you enjoy!

Our first Bon List is about color combination for the spring/summer.  As seen on Daria Werbowy, black is a great accent on pastels and bright colors.  I actually have the Forever skirt below and paired it with a white tank, beige cardigan and black sandals.  I also accessorized with my owl necklace and Botkier bag.

Was out gift shopping for my one year old nephew at Target and I ran into these fresh looking animal piggy banks. Check out the variety of ceramic animal banks from ducks to elephants. Afterall, pig piggy banks are played out. Love the simple flat sided design and pastel colors. So if your looking to teach your child the art of saving at an early age, why not do it with style? What’s your favorite animal bank? Mine is obviously the elephant!
