anyone who as followed even a few posts on this blog would not be surprised to hear that navy is one of my favorite colors. it’s really my new black. navy ferragamos? check. navy accessories? check. navy dresses? sweaters? tops? check. check and check. with no end in sight i guess my motto is: if it’s navy, it’s aimee. but another favorite color of mine is emerald green so naturally blocking the two was double the fun! sometimes one’s favorite colors can go a long way especially when combined with gold accessories (another fave! especially this gold bracelet which was a gift from my gal anne). what are your favorite color combinations?

i looove my birthday booties! brian got me these awesome boots for my birthday (and a smiths record which i got to listen to while getting ready for our date at bar tartine!). anyway, if you love the rachel comey boots, but don’t want to plunk down all that cash, then you should check out the variety of booties at madewell (all about half the price of some comey’s). nothing celebrates getting another year older like some strutable booties. uh huh! my husband is a smart man, he knows that way to my heart is through a new pair of shoes (the flowers, date, and record were pretty sweet too). he’s the best present of all!

p.s. want to get some well deserved shopping in? you know you do! get an additional 25% off madewell sale items and it’s the last day for an additional 30% off sale items at jcrew. get it girls!

i love-love-love american apparel for basics! their clothes are so soft and pair well with just about anything. i have also developed an obsession with ferragamo’s, specifically the varas. they are so pretty and feminine. and they too wear well with everything in my closet- shorts, dresses, skirts, you name it. i adore them!
