Grunge Meets Girlie

I do not know about you but with the return of the fishnet trend my Instagram feed has become saturated with photos featuring the web-like tights under dresses, jeans, skirts, etc.

And just like that….BOOM… it's Monday again. 

I love graphic tee's for the summer but when the weather starts to cool down I like to look for graphic sweatshirts and other layering pieces for the fall and winter. These pullovers (that come in various styles) can be our answer to in-between-seasons dressing, but more importantly statement pieces that can be paired with unexpected separates. 

I paired this sweatshirt from MSGM with a checkered, knit skirt from Derek Lam (one of my favorites.) I think it adds a really cool element to this look, not to mention the color red is always so striking.  Shop more from this look below. 

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

Jumpsuit:Alice & Olivia (Last Seen Here)

Happy Friday to all,

Well it has been a bit of a rough time with the passing of my grandfather, I will miss him greatly as we shared a very special bond. I’m finally back on the blog and looking forward to a great summer and some travel. Just got back from spending some time in the city with my family to get a few things done then back home to shoot and can’t wait to get posting again!! Today I am wearing this white jumpsuit from Alice and Olivia. The pants and top are connected in the back by a zipper that runs straight up and then the outfit has a cute vest with a loose ruffle along the bottom over it. I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it as it is both a little dressy and casual at the same time. I have chosen to pair with a patterned shoe and then a simple black clutch for a subdued look but you could easily wear a pop of color for a statement outfit or choose to go all white. You can also switch it up a bit by taking the vest off. There are countless ways to style this look. I would love to hear how you would choose to wear it!! Have a great weekend. I’ll see you on Monday!!

Live Colorfully

Skirt:Alice & Olivia| Graphic Tee:Kate Spade (older, also love this one)

Good afternoon everyone and happy Tuesday,
Well I had a photo shoot yesterday and it was so windy it was ridiculous but all in all I got some really cute pics. I couldn’t decide which ones to post!! Feeling very Sarah Jessica Parker today in this Alice and Olivia skirt and we had so much fun shooting it. The wind was blowing it all over the place and all we did was laugh… got a lot of quirky shots but I think it gives them character. I had this Kate Spade live colorfully shirt and I love pairing graphic tees with skirts so I thought this one would be fun...(side note: Kate Spade has the best graphic tee’s) I very often will wear boots in the summer and my pink Christian Louboutin’s worked really well with this outfit also. Just adorable… I loved wearing it so much I didn’t want to take it off.  To the new friends I met yesterday…I hope you enjoy my closet and thank you for following along!!

A perfectly aligned plaid covers this soft sweatshirt style crewneck. The matching skirt is the exact same except detailed with a flounce hem. Matching two-piece sets have been popping up everywhere, and I must admit I am a fan. Whether a skirt and top combo as seen here or shorts and a crop top for spring and summer this look is seriously stylish, not to mention could it be any easier?! All you need to do is add shoes and accessories and after the fact, you are left with two great pieces you can mix and match throughout your wardrobe.
