took the plunge and bought a pair of white pants.  for a klutz like myself, this is very risky business.  with these trousers on, i'm pretty much a walking tide-to-go pen ad.  but, it was tons of fun styling them for the latest FASHION magazine style panel question: what is your favourite way to wear a bright lip to correspond with your style?  you can check out my answer here.  in the last year i've become addicted to bold lip colour.  my favourite shade is a toss up between a great rouge and bright pink, much like this revlon balm stain.  now, i'll just have to be sure not to somehow get lipstick on my pants...because i would.

and thanks so much for all your nyc recommendations.  adam and i are going to sit and read through them tonight and sort out our itinerary!  you're all the best :)

  6. If I wore white pants - which I would be far too afraid to - I can guarantee I'd wind up with lipstick on them. And ketchup. Even if I didn't go anywhere near ketchup while wear them. They look lovely on you, though! As does the lipcolour :)

  14. This is a really cute summery look! Good luck with the white pants! I have yet to become brave enough to get any of my own, I just know I would sit in something questionable, haha!

  20. Aw, Alicia you're just stunning - such a natural beauty!! And I absolutely love everything about this summery look. And I'd LOVE to have a little po-mo catch up day. Things have been a little hairy this summer. I've been in out of the hospital several times the last two weeks, but hopefully I'll start feeling a little bit stronger for a visit. When are you guys heading to NYC... haha, I'm realizing I should of just emailed you - instead of rambling on your blog. Oh dear!! SMOOCHES! V
