zest

13th May 2013

sometimes, zest is more! so i’m beyond excited to show off my new lemon shorts (yes, lemon printed shorts) in today’s bright && summery post.
 a little bit of yellow can go a long way, but today i opted to double up on this bright hue with two different patterned yellow pieces. i’m especially loving the mix of the two flowers && lemon prints, it simply screams spring!



who wears short shorts? if you do, try pairing it with a solid oxford shirt, the exposed legs in contrast with the conservative sleeves make the outfit more interesting! try tying your top to expose just a little bit of skin to make the look flirty without exposing too much.

tulle town

19th March 2013

after taking a few weeks off to manage my move to nyc,
i’m finally back to blogging! && today we take a twirl in tulle.


sequins && tulle can make a girl feel like a queen,
but today i took a new take on twirl && gave it a casual twist.

when pairing two statement pieces or even mixing patterns, use black (or a neutral) to break it up and keep the look for going over the top. 
also try mixing your mediums! this look started out girlie, but the menswear inspired vest && casually chic boots give it some unexpected edge. 
shirt: j.crew // skirt: h&m (love this one from ktr, she will be back to selling soon) // belt: kate spade // tuxedo vest: halogen (love this one) // boots: shoegasm (my new favorite) // black tights //  bag: kate spade (outlet find) // ring: kate spade // arm party: sequin // kate spade idioms  // vintage // kate spade charm bracelet // j.crew // sequin

before you go…
now you can view all my past outfits in one location:
thanks again for giving me a break during my move!
&& stay tuned: apartment && nyc pictures still to come.

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.
