What to wear: the statement necklace

May 15, 2013

I LOVE necklaces! Big bold and fun necklaces. Wear them with a white tee, pair of jeans and flats or a simple LBD and heels for date night. My favorite go to is Anthropologie and you never spend more that $60 but you will get $1000 worth of wear. Some women have a shoe thing or a bag thing I have a thing for necklaces!













What to wear: Take chances

May 8, 2013

Sometimes I feel like I’m stuck in a fashion rut. Do you? Like if I have to wear a cardigan one more time!! But I like the idea of adding a little something to the usual uniform just to funk it up.

A black bra under a white sweater. Yes your are breaking the rules but it looks cool without being over the top sexy.


Love the idea of a colored tights with the same color skirt and no its not black!


Can you make a graphic tee look chic?  Love the idea of pairing this everyday tee with a fun skirt and some sexy boots.


A colorful belt tied in this perfect little knot is lovely


Love this outfit! For work, dinner with friends a PTA meeting?


What to wear: Spring Jackets

April 30, 2013

Oh man I LOVE  jackets. Got a whole closet full of them to back up that statement. As we ease into spring most days you need a light jacket to start the day. Happy to do that as long as the coats look like this.

I’m also loving the peplum trend. Emma Stone looks totally chic right?

I found a gorgeous Moschino one on Shopbob but at $1600 it might break the bank! I’m in search of acute versatile peplum jacket so if you come across one let me know.
