Denim Darling

16th July 2012

Dare to take your denim for dull to dashing…
Everyone has (or should have) a denim button down in their closet, but just because this piece is a basic doesn’t mean the look has to be ordinary as well! 

Denim is a classic! But it does not have to be worn in simple and casual ways!

Giving your denim a much needed girlie make-over can be super simple, just spice up your look with fun pops of color or flirty accessories.
instead give your jean a girlie make over with fun pops of color or flirty accessories. Try bows, leopard and the color red, these classics never go out of style but breathe life into any otherwise boring look.

Buttons & Bows

21st June 2012

Today’s look has a few componets: it helps us dress down a dressy dress while combining a few current trends: tomato red, denim, pops of color and arm parties.
Recognize this dress? It’s the Kate Spade Jillian dress I wore for my MBA graduation, but today it’s getting a casual make over! Here’s how I took it from dress to day…

With the Jillian dress, a little bit of layering can go a long way! I paired a button up shirt under the dress  to dress it down a bit!
Arm partys are all the rage right now! So as always I piled on the arm candy with lots of bracelets, bangles and bling!
A pop of color is always a great way to make a statement for spring! For this outfit I choose a turquoise necklace and turquoise gum drop studs for that perfect pop! 
Denim is also really big right now from colored skinnies to chambray tops. For this look, layering a denim button up under the jillian helped dress it down!
Tomato red was all over the spring runway from prints and patterns to bold solids! It is a super easy trend to try, play it safe by pairing it navy, denim or brown, or be bold by pairing it with turquoise (like me) or even yellow!
 I finished the look by neutralizing it with gold.
