Best Picks #NSale

It’s time for one of my favorite annual sales, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale July 22-August 7; I actually love all of their sales, but this one lets you shop fall merchandise before fall (and before the end-of-season sales where you may or may not be lucky enough to find an item in your size!)  To top […]

Boho Chic // 5 Tips

army green maxi tank dress and suede fringe belt (sold at FJ Boutique) // gold bangle bracelets (sold here) I remember being invited to a shopping night for a little boutique in Corbin Park a few years ago (was it only last year?!) and so I picked out cute boho chic summer top, paired it […]

Sporty Sneakers

Cardigans are everything – all year round. Still loving all sweaters Athleta (especially their cashmere!), I’m layering up for cold days with silk tank tops, wool cardigans and cashmere scarves. I’m also still wearing leggings as pants and guess-what-who-cares? These fleece leggings (Athleta tags them as tights) are ev-er-e-thang. Warm, comfy, cozy, fleecy, stretchy goodness […]

Warm Cashmere

Winter weather means armfuls of accessories; scarves, hats, gloves, more scarves, and lots of fur-lined everything.  I usually go neutral with my winter weather accessories, choosing light heather grays in cashmere scarves (this one doubles as a warm shawl/wrap!) and black, black, black.  I know the trend right now is Hunter boots in the snow […]

Flarely There

My sister and I had a quick conversation about current trends the other morning.  I claimed that flare and trouser jeans were back in (trouser jeans are my favorite and I love when they come back around on the fashion merry-go-rouond!), le style populaire!  She doubted me, saying that she hasn’t seen anyone wearing them […]

Red Dress // 5 Ways

When friend and blog reader Anna (okay so she’s also my best friend – wink) sent me a link to this Erin Fetherston chiffon dress, I knew my budget was in trouble.  I’d just started researching beauty trends, florals are huge this spring (I feel like that’s always a duh! spring florals!) and with KCFW […]

Trend // Not Nude Lip

Spring is officially here (I’m typing this while on Spring Break vacation) and just like I’ve cleaned out my closet and filled it with new trends and updated classics, the contents of my vanity drawer need updating as well.  I’m not what I would consider a “high-maintenance” kinda gal.  Life gets busy and sometimes I’m […]

Pastel // 5 Ways

“This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, PEOPLE® and Real Simple®, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #SpringintoMeTime http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV“ I have loved glossy magazines for as long as I can remember.  As a young girl (a budding teenager, desperate for things like boobs and real […]

One Dress // Four Seasons

There is nothing I love more than versatility.  I have a few questions I ask myself when purchasing something new to add to my wardrobe (scroll down to find out how to build your year-round wardrobe at the end of the post!) Case in point?  This TopShop Leopard Dress I snagged at Nordstrom on a […]

Winter Whites

My favorite year-round piece right now is this leather jacket.  I’m focusing on quality over quantity this year, and one of the quality things at the top of my investment pieces list was a leather jacket.  It’s been perfect for fall and winter, and I’m positive I will find myself tossing my well-loved and worn […]

Socks vs. Boots

Have you ever seen something so many times that you eventually found you like it (like Taylor Swift songs?)  I saw this pic on pinterest, then this pic on joiegirlblog (I saw this outfit in person, it was super adorable!) then Meg blogged about it here, and then I saw this pin.  Socks with booties?  […]

Trend: Fringe

A few months ago, a friend sent a text admitting to being tempted by a fringe covered handbag. <gasp>  Just kidding!  With the rise of trendy music festival Coachella, the tail-end of the popular Roaring Twenties a la The Great Gatsby and Sean Kelly’s stunning fringe masterpieces on Project Runway, fringe is in!  Don’t worry […]

High-Waisted Denim: Trend or Timeless

High waists are not for the faint of heart, or the large of derrierre, or the bloated either.  It also takes a certain kind of confidence.   Remember when terribly unflattering photo of Jessica Simpson was seen floating around the internets?o you think   I do, and the critics were vicious!  No she wasn’t fat, […]

The Jumpsuit: Trend or Timeless

The jumpsuit has been around for a season or two; is it a fad, a trend or a timeless classic? Like all wardrobe staples, it depends on the cut. A flowy, wide leg jumpsuit in black (under $25!!)? Classic. Timeless. Wear it. Or don’t.    Forever 21 Blue Jumpsuit (similar here and here) Old Navy White Denim […]
