I’m a huge lover of all things fall – from the weather to the layering style, don’t get me wrong – but why is it that we barely get to hang on to that before the harsh cold winds and snow comes our way? At least that’s how it is in Michigan. The view from my balcony once was full, colorful and lively trees… and now they’re just bare. And I swear, it happened all within a couple of weeks. That officially means that it is chilly enough for jackets and scarves, and what not (which I’m fine with). It’s when the parkas and snow boots are required that frighten me. This look I have on here is one of my favorites! From the black and white to pintuck details, this outfit emits a romantic, yet professional, femininity. And, a perfect everyday look for fall. Work appropriate? Yes. Happy hour worthy? Yes. These pieces work nicely together, and really embody my style.
Anytime I throw on a flannel, I feel like I should be at jammin’ away with Luke or Kenny, or picking pumpkins and apples at the cider mill! Country music and fall festivities are two of my favorites things so it isn’t a bad feeling at all. I’m so excited for fall and the scents, events and styles that come along with it. And to think, it’s here in just a few short weeks! Carefully crafted combinations with trends from the here and now, and other eras whether past or future, are my absolute favorite! I mean, who doesn’t love knee high boots and the essential plaid shirt?
Yesterday, my boyfriend and I celebrated our three year anniversary! It’s crazy to think about how quick time flies. And to think that my boyfriend has been able to put up with my most diva’est moments ever… as did I with him, hehe. Definitely a keeper! The weather was simply perfect this weekend. I had a lot of pool time, sun time and time outdoors… as you can tell. I’m sporting this fabulous bronze summertime glow… hehe. If only it came natural. At least I got it in time for our anniversary date night. With a little help from my Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit, my face was looking flawless! Date night is always a great night. It’s a reason to get all dolled up and take it to the town. We ended the night with a romantic dinner at The Melting Pot, I mean, what’s better than a little dinner, wine and lots of chocolate fondue?
What better way to start the morning than with a cup of coffee, flowers and a scenic view? This past weekend, my boyfriend and I took a long weekend trip up to the cabin. So tranquil and blissful – it’s exactly what the both of us needed after a hectic week.
Just because you work in an office doesn’t mean you have to dress drab! I’m a working girl who wears a lot of hats. My workplace is actually pretty casual, but with my fashion desires I choose to express myself with what I wear. If you’re in the typical pantsuit, slacks and blouse, or business casual environment; it’s always important to make sure your individuality shines through. Remember, being fabulous certainly isn’t a crime!
The quintessential wardrobe always includes the basics: an abundance of tees and tanks for layering, a jacket for every season, and the staple stripes and skinnies for a classic everyday look. Rummage through your closet right now; you can’t tell me you don’t own at least one essential striped button-up and a dark pair of skinny jeans that are appropriate for just about any occasion. If you don’t, well, it’s time to go shopping!
If it’s flouncy — I’m in! I’ve been swooning over this look for months now, and I’m excited that it’s finally mine. This look has uber-chic and classic old school written all over it.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, everyone! So crazy that it’s already May… where did the time go?! If you’re heading out for a couple margaritas with the girls today, get your hands on this romper, ditch the sombrero and grab the fedora instead! Not only will you be a total knockout, you’ll bring the fiesta wherever you go. Why dress drab when you can look SUPER fab!?
