Welcome to my Fall

The start of a new school year, fashion week, pumpkin lattes (if that’s your thing…sorry but no thanks) a new position after 19 years at work, leading the continuation of my fathers legacy, and all along looking stylish has made fall a very busy season.

The point I’m trying to make is that we all go through things, whether they are apparent to others doesn’t make them any less importance.

For me when I get dressed it makes me feel ready to take on my day! To inspire others! When others tell me that my dances made them smile or laugh…I am so all about that!! Wouldn’t you rather make someone feel uplifted, alright to be themselves rather than put someone down, make them feel bad!?

It’s harder to be and find kindness…WHY? Because we are human! Practicing to be authentic, kind, caring and inspiring is work…EVERYDAY! Let’s face it not everyday is that kind of day! So on those days we remind ourselves that we are struggling and trying our best and to be kind, caring and compassionate!

With that being said I have gathered some of my favorite looks and products of fall must haves this fall! To help inspire you to feel your best, to give your best!

Let’s start with Tee’s! These are easy go to pieces because they can be layered, dressed up with a tulle skirt , layered over a fancy dress, the sky is the limit! Obviously they are great for dressing down with jeans…keep scrolling you’ll see my takes!

Sweaters are a staple in the fall and a vest will be the perfect transition from the warm days to cold nights. You can never go wrong with Houndstooth!! Don’t you agree!?

The Grey knit and sparkle silver metallic boots tied together the warm tones of autumn like orange, burgundy and of course a plaid print in the mix.

Mix sweater dresses with fun upbeat prints like cheetah! Add a houndstooth with creamy fun textures! Add some graphic college style sweatshirts to create great collard shirt layers and Jean Friday’s!

Let’s talk pops! Like these pink hunter boots! I found them in the kids section on the Bloomies web site! A little color can go a long way with the right pieces.

Heel pops and neck bows! These are great places in any look to add your color pop!! Especially if your wardrobe may not be so colorful yet.

Now let’s talk texture! From real leather to faux what would fall be without them? Lace brings a romantic twist while feathers fly in with whimsy and fun!

So excited to have announced that I will be an affiliate with Courtney Adele! Her pop corn was gone before I could even take the picture LOL!!! Tea time and coffee breaks will NEVER be the same again once you step into the Olbali family products, something for everyone.

My foot has been feeling so much better with the Olbali hemp cream. My go to fragrance is called ‘Rose of no man’s land’ by Byredo. These new amazing metallic and matt eye shadows by Tarte I picked up at Ulta and I am crushing over them!!

So excited to be back in the swing if things! I will be sending a blog out quarterly, definitely and on occasion to introduce this amazing community with things I think will bring you inspiration, laughs and of course fun Style!!

Thanks for being here!!

Until next style,

Xoxo,

Floral and geometric combo is always a perfect balance!

Neutral small prints create texture and look great with a pop!

Zig zag are like stripes..gotta have them in your wardrobe!

Holiday Bling!

The magic is in the air….the holidays are here!!  My son is over the moon about Christmas, for me first things first…enjoying Thanksgiving!! I love being lazy around the house, eating a lot of yummy comfort food and wearing stretchy pants….of course with some added bling! What does you Thanksgiving look like? Do you host, is it low key, do you travel?  Either way this post will inspire you to get your BLing on and have fun with layers and details!!

Do you have a dress that you truly see made for wedding parties ONLY? Not sure how to simplify it, to get more wear out of it…add layers,  add a color pop. Edit the look with black accessories.  Of course don’t forget to check out AnneXJoseph repuposed and upcycled earrings!! The perfect gifts for the Holidays!!

Look for sparkle in a top, or a new years dress that needs an upgrade becoming a top by layering with a lace skirt!! Then wrap yourself with a neutral like black with a little texture!  Spakle doesn’t need to be head to toe!

Talk sparkle, how about some wide leg twinkle?  Add layers that are unexpected.  Put the bustier on the outside this time of the year. Layered with a silk flowy long tank or blouse!! Remember if you don’t try it you won’t know if it works. Dont’ forget your upcycled earrings from AnneXJoseph!!

Want the sparkle but not all the fuss?  Add jeans to keep the look simple and wearable for a Friday vibe or an afternoon of run around, even Thanksgiving!!  This look is near and dear to my heart because the baby blue jacket was my fathers.  Sometimes the bling isn’t a physical aspect of the outfit but the emotional bling …..love and miss you Pop!

How about a little fringe with your bling?!! I love a great Kimono vibe that uplifts any day at any moment!! Keep the look simple with blue jeans and a white tank….then add that bling for a great look upgrade!!!

I hope that this season you bling yourself out and shine bright for the Holidays!!  Remind yourself that you inspire, you are worthy to anything you put your mind to.

I want to wish my entire community a very Happy thanksgiving!!

Fall Florals

Leaves aren’t the only things falling into play this season….flower prints are stomping through this season!!

Deep plum has fall written all over it! Pop it with brighter hues like the pink/purple velvet….throw on a light animal print coat for contrast! Love tulle sprinkled here and there!

Dressed down fancy with sneakers and a baseball jacket! Sparkle for a gloomy day pick me up!

Kimonos with fringe kicks it up a notch! Layered with a statement necklace! Talk about an entrance!

Take any floral dress to a fall vibe with black accessories! Sometimes keeping it classic and chic makes the dress center stage.

Grab a floral blousepencils skirt and heels and create a match from like colors!

Retro flowers paired with classic navy and black ribbon makes for a new age chic!

Bright bold pops pulled from dark prints work wonders! Talk about a color twist!

Long layers in the dress and sleeve will keep you warmer as the temps start to drop!

Jeans, diamonds and kimonos to the floor makes for any day of the week!

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!)
