Celebrating the “Bright Side of Summer” With Malibu Island Spiced!


RealityTVFashion has teamed up with Malibu Island Spiced to celebrate one of the season’s top runway trends – neon!  Wearing brights always makes me feel “island ready” as it lends such a festive feel to even the dreariest of days.  I’m excited that this color trend is still hot even as we segway into the Spring 2014 season!

In the spirit of National Rum Day and the brighter side of summer, I’m showing off a few flicks from our “Family Portrait Day” that I styled with punches of bright green.

If you’re a longtime follower of this blog you’ll recall that twice a year me and my guys take professional portraits. My “baby” turned 3 this weekend and we commemorated the occasion with a neon-themed photo session at a gallery in the city.  After the shoot, the hubs snapped a few candids of me and the boys in my Jessica Simpson Pleated Crepe Dress in Citronelle styled with leopard print peep-toe heels and a Miriam Haskell Gold-Tone Mixed Bead Shaky Stretch Bracelet.

I love this light and breezy dress that features a scoop neckline at the front with dramatic V-back, netted, lattice-inspired insets at the shoulders, and mirrored knife pleating down the front and back.  It’s finished with a tonal sheer woven lining and a removable belt around the elasticized waist.  So fun and easy!

Right now I’m totally coveting my stretchy gold-tone mixed metal bracelet that flaunts an array of shaky beads in acrylic, wood, glass, thread, cotton cording, and shell accents. The boys love how this bracelet jingles and clinks as I move.  With it’s assortment of colorful beads and charms it’s been a real summer staple! Get it here.
