today we’re going geometric with purple pattern mixing!

 pattern mixing is about takings risks and dressing outside the lines! dare to pair your favorite patterned dress with a contrasting pattern belt (or try a ribbon like i used) just use complimentary colors or classic black & white to keep it under controll!
as we step into spring, don’t forget about your favorite tights! instead give them an upgrade and go for a vibrant stocking to pair with your favorite flirty skirts. 
 dress: kate spade // tights: target // belt: ribbon from target // necklace: kate spade // sunnies: miu miu // cardigan: kate spade // boots: shoegasm (my new favorite) //  ring: kate spade // arm party: sequin // kate spade idioms  // vintage // kate spade charm bracelet // j.crew // sequin

after rain comes a rainbow

30th January 2013

why should i wait for a rainbow,
when i can wear one when while it’s still pouring?

everyone should invest in one pair of color rain boots (they don’t have to be the expensive-esque hunter ones … mine were $25 rain boots). anyways, colored wellies will really brighten up your rainy day && add the perfect pop of color to our outfit!
a color pop doesn’t have to be a single thing. next time you see yourself drawn to your favorite lbd or a black&&white outfit], try to add not just one, but two (or more) pops of color to your look. it will add an unexpected brightness to your look.

twinning with taylor

18th January 2013

today i’m twinning with the lovely miss taylor swift as we both strut our stuff in not one, but two kate spade carolyn dresses!

. . .

first up, we step out in the black and white carolyn! it’s a classic with a twist!
// one // two //
so taylor kept her look classic and simple, while i piled on the pearls and made it very courtney! take another peek as we compare the two…
black and white is nice but color is better! so next up we shake up this classic shape by adding some color!

pink && teal

10th January 2013

today, let’s brighten up the usual b&&w outfit with a pop of color

i’m all about the pop of color, it is always so perfect && so on trend for spring! but i couldn’t resort to just one surprising hue, i had to double my color with a pop of teal && a pop of deep pink (both hot colors for spring).

most either opt for pattern mixing or utilizing a color pop! but this year, be bold && try both! oh && when you’re looking to pattern mix try two geometric patterns like stripes && dots, gingham && polka dots or stripes && houndstooth (like me!).
did you splurge on a holiday day dress to die for? if so, here’s a tip on remixing your favorite festive frock for the new year! layer a cute cardigan over the top && cinch it with a statement belt to define your waist while making your dress look completely different!

 dress: kate spade // cardie: target (try these) // belt: vintage // necklaces: francescas && diy pearls (tutroial) // shoes: kate spade (look for less)// earrings: vintage (check these out) // sunnies: miu miu // bag: kate spade // rings: vintage // wire wrap // betsey johnson // kate spade // vintage // arm party: vintage // sequin // vintage // kate spade idioms // vintage // michael kors // vintage // jcrew // forever 21
