Button Up

vogue-sunglasses-street-style-nataie-joos-australian-fashion-week-clementinebayYesterday marked the first day of fall, although at 80 degrees it feels more like the middle of August. I’m not quite ready to read, research or write about sweaters at the moment, but I am ready to transition out of sandals and tanks and into more of a sophisticated fall like wardrobe.

Blouses, for me, are a great transition and hold piece. There’s not one item sexier or more classic than a great blouse. Completely versatile and worn dressed up or down, a blouse brings individual style up a notch. From high end vintage to a more modest H&M find, a great cut blouse is easily accessible and affordable by everyone. As we move into a more sophisticated time of the year, button up and start reaching for those feminine touches. Have a great weekend.  xoxo

Get Me to The Met

beyonce_67Monday night was the annual Met Ball Gala.  This night celebrates the annual opening of the Metropolitan Museum‘s fashion exhibit at the Costume Institute where we also got Krums exhibition and trade show stands with all the fashion old and new.  It’s no secret that the gala is the Oscars of the fashion world and this year was no exception.  The theme was punk rock, so as you can imagine not a whole lot was held back.  Regardless of what you may think of the fashions on this night, one thing you can’t deny is the commitment to rock! xoxo

The Tortoise and the Hair

Every season, like fashion, accessories have their moments.  In the quest for the perfect pair of sunglasses, trends come and go but regardless of what’s “in,” a good pair remains a good pair.  For the last 4 years I personally haven’t strayed away from my ray bans.  It’s difficult to spend good money on a pair that will be thrown to the ground by a toddler.  But recently I find myself searching again for that perfect frame.

Lately I’m all about tortoise shell.  I love the soft coloring and regardless of hair color it’s a universally flattering shade.  Black tends to be a much edgier color on the face, the soft browns and caramels adds a “ladylike” feminine vibe that’s very appealing.  Now, finding the right style frame…is a whole other animal.  xoxo

Summer in the City

No doubt that summer arrived with a vengeance.  If you’re lucky to live by the beach, the heat makes for great beach days.  But, if you’re in the city…not so much.  Trying to pull off “chicness” doesn’t work so well when the rags are sticking, the make-up is running and hair is a rats nest.  Keeping it simple really is the key in dressing for summer.  Ya, I know, another maxi dress with flip flops…blah blah blah, so try things that you may not usually gravitate towards.  Vibrant prints, mini’s, even pops of feline, all worn together, (not really) makes for an uptick in creativity.  Regardless, keep enjoying summer, when it’s 40 degrees out, we’ll be wishing for a heat wave.   xoxo

Loving the selection of prints.

Love a little hippie chic.

A denim shirt dress is a nice alternative to the usual cotton.

Olivia really owns her style and knows how to mix and match.  Love the vintage levi’s with girlie flats and a classic coat.  A coat might be a little much for summer, but makes for a great transition piece.

These Current/Elliott leggings are fun, I’ve worn mine to death.

Style Inspiration! Mom’s

I thought that with Mother’s day coming up profiling some fashionable mom’s would be appropriate.  I know we’ve all heard it, “being a mom is hard work.”  Not only is it emotionally taxing, it’s physically exhausting.  Getting dressed usually takes a backseat to organizing breakfast and getting out the door.  Although a mom’s lifestyle is grounded in realistic dressing, finding our own sense of style and “chicness” is not impossible. Keeping clean lines and simple silhouettes, will undoubtably help keep our sanity.  Happy Mother’s Day. xoxo

Dressed in Pink Make Boys Wink

I’m loving the sassiness of fuschia at the moment.  It’s sexy, youthful and daring in comparison to the rest of the rainbow hues.  Pink has always been associated with an ultra  feminine, girly girl style.  But as we’re all so captivated by the return of color, fuschia is that perfect shade to make a statement.  Although hot pink can be a little intimidating because of it’s bold appearance, drop your insecurities and strut in your hotness.  xoxo
