Sweats and Sweaters

FINALLY….I feel the cool weather…and I have to say it’s my favorite time to layer and put on cozy sweaters, sit at a bon fire and drink hot coco!!

Loving this long cardigan found at Target!! Great deal too!! Houndstooth is a favorite print in any color! I was so happily surprised when my houndstooth skirt worked. Then I realized..they are complimentary color orange and blue!! No wonder!!

Sweater vests are taking the spotlight this fall! Layers layers layers! Loved adding the icy blue to the neutral, created a gift ribbon vibe!

Layer a light oversized sweater with a shorter printed jacket! The perfect pairing to jogger pants and tall boots!

How about a lettuce trim sweater dress as a cardigan! Most pieces can be used in different ways! Just be creative and open minded!!

Sweat shirts can add just as much layered fun!! Pull out prints and colors that are in the top pair it qith jeans and you are ready!

How about a sweater cape! The fall brings out layers and basics so look for inspirational pieces like a cape. Unexpected and full of details like fringe!

Keep it in the fam like this pink and red pop!!! Layers of colors go perfect for a sweater vibe!

Rainbow of any kind is always a great pick! You can literally pair it with ANY color!

A larger than life print full of whimsy is the perfect pick me up for fall! Layering great tights and knee highs are great qith a pair of white leather tennis sneakers!

It’s amazing how a season brings life to our familiar pieces in our wardrobe and breath into them new life! Remember think twice about how you can wear each piece!!! I bet you could come up with even more style tricks!!

Fall mix ups!

Each season has it’s own special vibe in fashion. For me fall is where it’s at! The layers, the textures and the endless color pallets! So let’s get inspired to pop small mixed prints or really shake things up with three or more!

Let’s face it polka dots are ALWAYS a good idea!! Add a fun belt to make a small but mighty pop!! I absolutely adore houndstooth and feel like it married well with the dots!

This was a fun combo! Animal print and geometric patterns!! I really love how the orange and Jean vest pulled from the dress print! The original GG Gucci print acts like a neutral!! So if you want to invest in a high end bag or accessory think of a monogram that you like!!

I was DELIGHTED when this fun whimsical French Macaroon top paired so well with the geometric print!! It all came down to the eye catching colors!! Seek out matching colors within the prints!!

Think Georgia O’Keefe western landscape vibes with cactus flowers, snakes and butterflies. Layering a sheer tank allowed the snake print to show through and be one with the flowers! Adding my third print for a head scarf! I turned up the look with beaded necklaces and a macrame wooden belt.

Pink and tan or brown are such a great pair! Large gingham and a small plaid even down to the tights!! Metallic belt and heel match drawing your eye from head to toe!

Hope this fun print mix post has inspired you to get out of your comfort zone to shake things up!

Animal printed fall

Animal print is here to stay…like I mean FOREVER! Whether it’s pops throughout your look or head to toe …you can NEVER go wrong with a cheetah pop or a pack of lions making your style!

Let’s start with a twist on animal print!! Literal lions printed! Add a matching textured top to coordinate the color and print! Sometimes a match in texture is what pulls things together!

Love a “Go big or go home!” cheetah print! Paired with a pale blue to pop the print!

Love this color combo! Watermelon in fall..lol the dark and muted green really popped the pink ! Love the dog earrings so whimsical….ANIMAL everything!

You know that saying, “Too much is too much!!” Well this look is just that!! The sparkle hat pulls the color from the pants! Talk about wearing what EVER you want.

An electric pop in Fall is unexpected and vibrant against the fall pallet of the trees!!! Another great literal print of whole zebras! YES please!

Colorful animal cheetah print, especially this one,customized from Eshakti, pairs well with black accessories! Perfect for brunch or a day in the office. When you get new pieces, or are working with old ones, elevate your style by thinking outside the box. Imagine how a piece will be worn in your everyday life!

And let’s not forget about the mythical dragon prints. A kimono can upgrade any run around town outfit!

Remember that layers and accessories can be the key to pulling your animal print looks together!

It’s black, it’s white and everything in between!

Basics!….what comes to mind when you think of basics? I truly think of tank tops and leggings, especially for the cooler months ahead! Black, white, grey and a touch of everything else! This blog will be a great way to use a basic in an elevated look! Black and white is anything but boring!

Love adding a comfy dress with a bit of bling! Think of it as a long graphic Tee X 1,000! Fun cute looks that are effortless and feel soft and cozy! Sometimes looks can be simple but yet pulled together!

Grey is a hue, and basic, that I NEED in my wardrobe!! Especially in these pants which never disappoint!  I really loved how this rust color top went with the color pallet! This is a perfect example of everything in between!

A Black and white print can go a long way!

I styled it several different ways for you to see how a skirt, that’s right I said skirt, can be transformed into different looks by wearing it with other pieces !

Add some Capri pants and a belt for a long strapless top look.

Tuck in the skirt to the pants, add a fun matching belt to cinch the waist!

OR wear it as it was meant to be, a skirt and add Hues of color to make the skirt a focal point!

I hope that these black, white and everything in between sparked your creativity to use basics as a point of interest in your everyday look or that you use a piece in a way you never thought of!!

Remember that Fashion is like art!! There is no wrong way to do it!

Back to school vibes!

Whether it’s the color, texture or shape EVERYONE has nostalgic back to school looks!  I can still remember how I loved the smell of my new leather sneakers and all the amazing art supplies that I had begged my mom for only to use them before school started!! So here is a round up of looks to spark your imagination to start your school year right!

Of course rainbows and butterflies come to mind. When I was little I would get fantastic rainbow erasers, pencils and socks! Feeling creative I went to the dollar store and found these great butterflies. Add some super glue and an amazon headband…wha la!!! If I were to wear this all day, reinforcement would be necessary!! (For my creative pics it worked great!) It really is as simple as that to transcend what you love into your wardrobe!!

One color I ALWAYS had to plug into my back to school line up was lavender!! Oh how I loved lavender!! Purple of any color has been Number one since I can remember! It would be the only crayon I would run out of! Seeing that we are getting into fall and winter, pleather or leather looks are great buys!! This was a thrifted NWT (new with tags) Zara dress…SCORE!!!

Comfort, easy and breezy is a Necessity! As we head back to school the heat is still there!! With no A.C. it’s important to feel as cool and comfy as possible! Look for a fun print in a light weight flowing fabric. The headscarf accent always feels like an artist note in any outfit!!

Let’s not forget to show up and show out as we head back ! What better look than a little suit swag!! This thrifted, new with tags, Michael Kors tie popped with the grey hues!! (and of course what color is it….thats right..my fav!)

Keeping with suit vibes and neutrals to pop this Alivia scarf! Absolutely obsessed with the amazing purpose behind their pieces!! Giving back and buying with purpose!  Talk about starting on the year off on the right foot!

So this year dig deep and remember what makes you happy!! Interpret what brings you joy through your looks!!

Linen & Lace

As the summer season is nearing the end I will gravitate to looks with layers!! I love linen and a bit of lace!! Linen gives great shape and form while lace adds texture to an everyday outfit!!! I do love summer, a favorite part of the year, however there’s nothing like fall dressing! So let’s get into the beauty of seasonal shifts and venture into these amazing fabrics!

I love the transition that comes with each season, especially when layering is involved!! I took my Bachelorette party dress, yes a few years old, and layered it with this fantastic up graded tee with dollar store beads and a fringe vest!! Look at your dress as a possible skirt or maybe a top!! When you can see your wardrobe worn in different ways the possibilities are endless.

Talk about a necessity! LBD.. (little black dress)! Most of us have more than one, however I am happy to say this linen has lasted the test of time!! Add pops of color at the waist with belts! Keeping everything a basic black accessory except one special piece creates a show stopper in the look!
