mix it up.

color + class.

Last week, I loaded up my outfits with major doses of color.  This week, I’m toning it down slightly — keeping my outfits bright, but grounded in neutral pieces.    Color and class aren’t mutually exclusive.  And whether you prefer to go all out or just add a few pops, there’s an appropriate level of color for everyone.

four ways to wear: oversized sweaters.

It’s Round 2 of my style collaboration with Kacie of Kacie’s Kloset, Kristin of Living in Color Print, and Christina of Oh So Glam and the second theme came just in time!  With temps dropping fast, we’re showing you four ways to wear oversized sweaters.

I recently scored this sweater at Zara.  I loved how cozy and effortless the sweater felt, but I was even more obsessed with the faux leather paneling on the shoulders.  Black leggings and heeled boots balance out the big proportions.  See how Kacie, Kristin, and Christina styled their oversized sweaters and let us know what you think!

back to basics.

Between surviving Hurricane Sandy, escaping a snowstorm, and celebrating my first post-grad Homecoming, I think it’s accurate to say my life has been a bit crazy lately.  Amidst the chaos, I find it refreshing to go back to the basics.  No frills.  No fuss.  Just classic color combinations, simple styling, and deep breaths.  Happy Monday friends.

leopard + oxblood.

Now that the cold weather is here to stay, my new uniform will probably consist of sweater dresses, leggings, and boots.  Don’t get me wrong, I love dressing up and getting creative with my closet.  But when it’s 7 in the morning, freezing, and barely light outside and I’m getting dressed for work, the only things I want to wear involve minimal effort.

Speaking of minimal effort — leopard and oxblood is such a no brainer combo.  So much so that Jess, Tracy and I unintentionally showed up to brunch on Sunday wearing variations of the look.  Stylish minds think alike, right?

pink + polka

Overdosed on pink yet?  Well today’s the last pink outfit in honor of October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month and pink denim is such an easy way to inject the bright color into your outfit.  It can easily be dressed up with baubles and heels or played down with more casual pieces.  Either way you work it, the goal is to do good and look great.
