We had a great time celebrating our anniversary on Monday! We decided to have brunch where we got married {at The Langham} and had fun roaming around the property and visiting all the spots that were a part of our special day.  Afterwards, we walked to the Rosebowl and enjoyed take out while watching a Downtown Abbey marathon!

Best Dressed: 2012 Cannes Film Festival

From top left: Giambattista Valli Couture mint gown. Nina Ricci lace, feather and floral embellished gown. Jason Wu midnight blue and black lace dress. Vivienne Westwood metallic sequined gown.

It's no secret that Diane Kruger is my fashion crush and for good reason. She gets it right every single time and this year's Cannes Film Festival was no exception! Doesn't she look like Grace Kelly in that mint number?

From top left: Calvin Klein tea-length coral dress. Balmain denim top and leather skirt ensemble.Versus burgundy dress. Versus printed cutout dress.

Which look was your favorite? XOXO

Review: West Avenue Jewelry Monogram Necklace

This weekend I received my West Avenue Jewelry Monogram Necklace from Max & Chloe and I absolutely love it! After some debate on sizing, I ended up getting the large size in gold fill and am so happy with the decision.  It's the perfect amount of pop to an outfit!  I'll try to get some photos of it on this weekend {in the meantime, check out Blair from Atlantic-Pacific wearing her monogram necklace here}.

Get your own West Avenue Jewelry Monogram necklace here {also available in classic, medium and small sizes}.  XOXO
