Week O’Nautical Special Edition: Seaside Gardens

It may only be March but I’m already thinking about Memorial Day and my “Week O’Nautical!” Partially because I want warm summer days, but also because of the new capsule release from Avon titled “Seaside Gardens.” Seaside Gardens is a fashion and home release influenced by all things nautical, which means this calls for a Week O’Nautical Special Edition!

Introducing Seaside Gardens Capsule Collection

The Seaside Gardens capsule collection is a limited release for spring.  This means all the items are meant to mix and match with each other (and well with what you have).  It also means that once the stock is gone, its gone.  Judging how the last capsule collection went (Savana Blooms/Modern Southern Belle) popular items will sell out.  I usually don’t like just sharing up the stock photographs but I wanted to share this entire fashion collection.

There are a lot of items I’m just loving!  My top picks include this Veronica Tote Bag and the adorable Ivy Jumpsuit.  There are so many jewelry options that will work from now through Labor Day, especially my pick, the Seaside Stripes Statement Necklace.  And can we take a moment to admire all the shoes… allllll of them!  I literally could work every single item into my wardrobe but my budget doesn’t agree.

In addition to the fashion there is a entire Avon Living line to match! (home goods)  I will be sharing here on Word of Alicia more from the Avon Living line, a Week O’Nautical outfit,  how to update your wardrobe without breaking your budget and how to take the nautical theme to your beauty routine.

Seaside Garden’s launches Wednesday March 14th and will be available through camping 11 (about 6 weeks) at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  If you would like to know how to gain early access to these types of collections and score them at 40% off leave a comment saying you want the word!

Currently Crushing On Pineapples

If I had my stuff together this would of been a Trending Tuesday post however it’s Wednesday so it’s just and obsession post.  With the mark. Instant Vacation Maui Bliss release and the start of all things summer I’m OBSESSING over all things tropical.  What seems to be the tropical pattern of the moment, PINEAPPLES!  They’re everywhere from fashion to food.  Here’s what I’m currently crushing on:

Fashion:  From a small accent on your bag to full on pineapple print this summer pineapples are still going strong.  I love the appliqué tote from Avon.  Perfect bag for weekend, picnic or the beach.  If you’re heading to a fair or amusement park these Avon Tropical Slip On Sneakers are perfect with shorts and a tee, or try the mark. Coconapple Tee from the Maui Bliss collection.  Erica sported it with the mark. Stroke Of Genius Shorts!  (see more here)

Tech:  I stare at my lappy all day and on my phone way too much not to have a cute background.  I just downloaded this pineapple and palm leaf one from laurenconrad.com.

Food:  Pineapple is definitely one of my top summer time fruits, but it is hard to cut.  That’s why a corer is a MUST!  This one from Avon makes making pineapple salsa a reality and so does this recipe from Katie Lee.  Not only am I crushing on Katie Lee’s pineapple on pineapple outfit on her Today Show segment, but her tenderloin tacos with pineapple salsa recipe sounds perfect for a summer night.  Be sure to watch the video for not only the how-to but also a good look at that outfit!

Beauty:  I’m definitely nailing a good pineapple mani/pedi this summer like this pinspiration one, but first is the proper prep.  The Avon Footworks line is not only actually really really good, it’s also really really affordable and this summer they’re debuting the Pineapple Chill scent.  That will refresh your feet with a cooling pineapple treat… and a twist of lime.  Check out this sneak peek from Samantha (with the upcoming Avon Pineapple Watch and Avon Tropical Slip On Sneakers).
