These jackets are all faux leather but have the same great look as the real thing.

The Year Round Blazer: White

13 Aug

Looking for a trans-seasonal blazer that will complete any look?  Look no further, a crisp white blazer will be there for you when you’re in fashion need and  can be dressed up or down.  White blazers are just as much a wardrobe essential as are black blazers and can be worn over dresses, with shorts, with jeans(wide leg or skinny) or anything really.  With Fall just around the corner, there is no need to put away your white blazer, this is a great piece that carries over into Winter and beyond.  I know we’ve all heard the saying…. but, no white after Labor day is an outdated fashion rule that’s not only been broken on countless runways in the last decade, but has practically been re written; hello! Winter white. It is A-okay to wear white after labor day!!!!!! 

Below are some great ways to rock a white blazer anytime of the year.

Some blazers for you to shop.

1. Linen blazer($88) 2. Cropped blazer($59) 3. Knit blazer,petite($59) 4. Patterson J. Kincaid blazer($198) 5. Blazer,plus($54.90) available at Nordstrom.

6. BarIII Sheer blazer($54.99) available at Macy’s.

Floral Jeans

8 Jul

As the proud new owner of floral jeans I wanted to do a post that would inspire you to get a pair as well.  I did have floral jeans as a kid but this is my first pair in my adulthood.  Floral is so fun and they come in many color combos from grey to brights to colorful pastels, it’s up to you.  I purchased a grey Current/Elliott pair(#4 below), yes I was bold enough for the print but not bold enough for color…..baby steps!  I wore mine with a white v neck and pink sandals and plan to wear them into Fall with bold blues and blacks.  As far as shoes, they look great with sandals, flats, wedges and heels! When wearing floral jeans, my only advice is to pair them with solid pieces so that the jeans are on a stage of their own.  Below are some ideas on how to wear them and also some pairs to shop. Enjoy!

Light As Air Layering (perfect for summer)

31 May

Layering is not limited to cold winter months. Layering can be done year round including summer time, all without overheating or looking like you belong in the snow. The key is lightweight materials such as sheers, laces and knits. Open front cardigans are great as well as vests and cropped jackets. I have included many pictures to inspire your own summer time layering:) Knock yourself out and remember to have fun with it!

P.S. Don’t forget your Summer scarves!
