Olive You

Olive in my eyes is another neutral that can go with many things in your closet. It seals the deal on many outfits and it’s a lighter option for the warmer temperatures. Just like black, you can pair it with simple colors like white, nude, and navy. If you want to be a little more daring go for a monochromatic look and throw on a pop of fuchsia colored lipstick for a little summer sass. It’s my guilty pleasure and this jacket can be thrown over dresses, over tops, as a top, or heck you can even tie it around your waist if it gets too hot!

For my outfit I chose a cream colored bodysuit making it stand out more, but wearing all black underneath can still make this bomber look on trend. The denim skirt was and is another obsession of mine, I have about 5 different styles. The difference in this one is I made a choker out of it. I felt that this length/structure could have gone a little shorter so I took off the seam and went to my favorite tailor and…voila! Choker number 3589! This year’s trends are killing me! I love them! I can’t get enough of them!

Which color is constant in your wardrobe?

Who else is into reworking clothes you own? What have you made over recently?

So Close

Good news everyone! Spring has quietly sprung its way into the east coast forecast. Mornings are still cold, and if you ask me…still coat worthy weather. Nevertheless I gave a warm welcome to some of my Spring staples in today’s look. Denim transcends seasons and trends so you can be rest assured it will always be a do in your closet. I chose to wear my denim jumper dress with a turtleneck, but to keep things on the springy side, I made sure it wasn’t black! I’m no fool, I made sure to add another layer to this look in case it got colder later on in the day. This dress is so versatile and I love that it’s a little more mature silhouette of a denim jumper dress, which can also be worn strapless! Let this be a warning that you’ll be seeing me rock a lot more denim this Spring!

What are your favorite denim pieces? How are you enjoying this puts me in a good mood weather?

Green With Envy

I can’t believe I am seeing the words Fall and Winter already! I don’t want the Summer to end, but girl and boy has it been HOT! To mix up a little bit of both seasons, I took an olive color midi, easy going dress and paired it with camel/brown ankle booties. Closed shoes are also a great way of covering up your ‘no time for a pedicure’ toes! The sunglasses and bright red lip added edginess to my Pre-Fall look.

Are you still shopping for Summer clothes or is your mind set on preparing for the Fall?

Ch-Ch-Changes

This past Monday was a life changing experience for me. For some it wouldn’t have been that dramatic, but trying to keep your apartment was a big deal to me. After a successful meeting with the landlord, I can now breathe easy and enjoy the holidays. To make it even better, the weather was a high of 70 degrees! You know what that means? Open toe shoes! Yes I went as far as looking like I was cut out of a Resort 2015 ad! A button down safari shirt, denim skirt, camouflage sandals and sunglasses that scream I’m ready for a vacation! After all this I think it’s time for one, so even if I couldn’t book a trip, I had to dress the part. For now,  I’m just happy to be spending Thanksgiving with my parents in their new home.

How will you spending Thanksgiving this year?
Any vacation plans in 2015?

Have a wonderful and grateful Thanksgiving weekend!

Lumberjack

Black to plaid…this has to be one of my favorite flannel button downs for Winter. I’ve had it for years and I wear it with everything; jeans, skirts even tied around my waist all through Winter. Although it isn’t Winter just yet, the weather has been brutal and if you’re not wearing anything to warm you up at the moment, I don’t know what you’re thinking! It’s time to throw on your cold weather gear!

How are you handling early Winter temperatures?
What do you think of the plaid trend?
