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

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.

Are you missing Ms Mary MacDonald? She has some words of wisdom she shared with Ok! Magazine on how to transition your home from winter to spring.  I’m sooo rolling up my wool living room rug!

Incase you have missed it Kate Young, stylists to the stars, debuted  her clothing line for Target last week. It’s sleek and sultry with a girly flair. I picked up this dress in the black version. Think it will be a total staple in my wardrobe this summer!
