Sweet Cherry Pie

Sweet Cherry Pie

Do you not immediately think of Warrant’s Sweet Cherry Pie when you see this cardi… because I do! I should of put this look as a Week O’Nautical outfit (see here) but I didn’t get around to it, but I’m still loving this Americana look from the Seaside Gardens Collection! (see here)

Americana outfit with Seaside Gardens

Spring rain hit us hard and I was ready for it! A cute cardigan is definitley the solution to spring weather. This Avon Felicity Cardigan in Cherry print brightens up a rainy day. (sidenote: it also comes in navy, white and red).  A spring layer is almost as necessary as keeping that umbrella around!

Rain Check!

For my Americana look I paired the Cherry cardigan with the Gingham Melanie Pencil Skirt (last seen here).  Of course I had to wear some rainboots (Hunter) and my big umbrella (Kate Spade) to handle this on again off again rain showers!

Spring Weather Must-Haves

You can shop my entire look over on my eBoutique!  Maybe make this bright and cheery cardi as part of your 4 pieces to upgrade your spring wardrobe, and don’t get caught in the rain!

Getting caught in the rain out takes!

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  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!
