Last week, I attended the Menlo Charity Horse Show with Ariat; more about the event here. I knew the event would be held outside, and on grass, so I opted for a pair of wedges which are easy to walk around in and would not sink into the lawn. I also decided to wear this Kate Spade dress which is made from a light knit. I loved wearing this dress since it was cool enough for a warm August day yet offered enough warmth when the fog started to roll in over the hills. I am definitely looking forward to wearing this Kate Spade dress again as we move from late summer into the fall season. It will be perfect for our warm Bay Area fall weather; and with the addition of a jacket or blazer, it will be ideal when the fog rolls in from the ocean!

From lounging to lunching in Duffield Lane

Duffield Lane has the most comfortable clothing I have ever experienced. The cotton is soft and cozy, which makes it a breeze to get through the day! I love how Duffield Lane makes clothing you can do almost anything in; sleep, lounge, shop and more!

I wore my Duffield Lane top while lounging in the fresh morning air on a recent trip to Lake Tahoe; and then again for lunch with my family. As a busy Mother of three, I appreciate clothing that can go anywhere and do anything; and is easy to throw in the machine to wash!

One of my favorite lipstick brands is Dolce & Gabbana. Their Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipsticks offer glossy coverage with a moisture induced center that allows the lipstick to moisturize your lips as well as leave a beautiful color applied to them. Love that!

The five colors of Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick I am showing above are new for summer 2014. Jasmine, Orchid, Lily, Lotus and Amaryllis are all easy to wear, soft hues with a pink base. These lipstick shades look amazing with summer’s bright color palette; yet offer a classic look which will be easy to wear as we transition into fall 2014. Amaryllis, the Passion Duo Lipstick hue in the last photo, is a fabulous color for transitioning into fall. It is the darkest shade of the five lipsticks and offers a neutral hue which blends with both summers’ bright color palette, and fall’s mix of bright colors and overly dark traditional autumn hues.

Amaryllis is definitely my favorite summer 2014 Dolce & Gabbana Passion Duo Gloss Fusion Lipstick hue out of the five featured above; although I love them all! Which color do you like?
