New Blue's

Today I wanted to show you some of my new BLUES. When it comes to picking out a color to wear, blue is really never my first choice. However, sometimes we need to step outside of our comfort zone and when do it allows our creative juices to flow!

Loop Cardi

…and I have officially found the sweater of my dreams.

Oversized & warm, this cardigan is one of those purchases I will live in. Wear it alone or layer it under an even bigger coat…either way you get the cozy feel from this loop cardi. It can bring you through fall, into the holiday season, and last you all winter.

Today I paired it with skinny jeans, my Stella flatforms, and my new beautiful patchwork belt! The colorful leather can add a spark to everything from billowy dresses to jeans and trousers. I am loving the mixture of patterns and deep tones for the fall. Shop today's look below:

Pretty Picnic

It's the weekend!!!

Wow, I cannot believe the summer is flying by and in a few days it will be August. It is such a short season!!! On the upside however, I will be going on vacation very soon so I have been getting ready for that, making my last few purchases. One new item I got was a camera. Knowing my photographer was not going to be around I wanted to start taking some shots on my own. No comparison to the work he does, not by a long shot. I have a lot to learn and I think I just might be in over my head but I'll get there. I have pretty much kept things only about the clothes but I figured if I am going to continue on with this venture then it's time to start opening myself up so, coming up on two years now, that will be one of things to look for. I want my followers to be able to relate to me not just what I am wearing. All suggestions gratefully accepted.

Today I kept it pretty simple, just wearing shorts and a tee but, I wanted to share my new picnic basket and blanket that I got from Joss & Main. I have wanted these items for awhile now and the price was right. I love spending the afternoon relaxing in the park and just taking in what's going on around me. Hope you enjoy!!! Have a great weekend everyone. Shop links below:

Good morning and happy hump day everyone!!

The weather has been so hot and cold lately…literally. I am soo not ready to take out all of my heavy winter coats, but this knit fall outfit makes the transitioning just a little easier. I decided to pair these metal detailed leggings with the matching zip-up cardigan for a retro/chic look. Some people may gravitate to the skirt instead, which is also listed below.

When I first saw these Miu Miu booties in the store…it was love at first sight. Patent leather shoes are so chic and these belt-like fastenings are just beyond. Not to mention…the pointy-toe and chunky heel reflect the themes of the FW15 runway show. They are not available online, but I have picked out some similar favorites.

Thanks for stopping by today!! XOXO

Proportions

I have had this knit crop top by Nicholas since early fall and this is the first time I have worn it. I am rather skeptical when it comes to crop tops because nailing the look can be tricky…especially when it comes to how much skin is exposed. I think it is important to play with proportions to keep the look sophisticated. Today’s look combines the embossed top with a pair of high-rise white culottes (also a first for me). Again, proportion is key for this style trouser. Because of the cropped length and wide leg the shorter top helps lengthen my silhouette, while the two-toned Louboutin pumps prevent the pants from taking over the entire outfit. I love what the leopard print in the back adds to this all white look.
