    The Occasion Outfit for Any Occasion

    Pants: Aritzia, similar here, and here | Top: Sandro | Shoes and bag: Chanel, similar shoes here, similar affordable bag here. Some occasions may be formal and call for dresses, while others just call for your best version of you. During the last several years, that version for me, has often meant a comfortable pants outfit. Having young kids at family parties has made me often choose pants over dresses.  I am always chasing somebody around, playing on the floor, or dealing with a meltdown. Dresses will always have my heart. I absolutely love a good dress, but pants often win because of practicality. I’m always on the look out for…

    Ann Taylor’s New Snakeskin Print

      Ann Taylor has always been a source of work wear for me.  Back when I worked in the office 5 days a week, Ann Taylor  was a definite go-to.  They make styling very easy with lots of options for mixing and matching.  Now that I work from home the majority of the time, I haven’t shopped at Ann Taylor in a very long time.  Just last week I decided to hop on their site and saw this gorgeous snakeskin print that just spoke to me. The snakeskin print was big in 2018 and is still going strong.  I love how this matching set is very subtle.  From afar, it doesn’t…

    An Eyelet Top for Spring

    An eyelet top is a Spring necessity.  It’s one of the most versatile warmer weather tops you can own.  If you are looking for a top that you can easily pair with a variety of items- jeans, shorts, skirts, pants, you name it, then you’ve got it in an eyelet. A white top is a wardrobe staple in most women’s closets. They are simple, stylish, and can be dressed up or down.  If you are looking for a fun alternative to a white shirt, I would suggest trying an eyelet.  It’s pretty, feminine, and a bit more playful than your standard white top.  I like to have both a long-sleeve…

    The Tie-dye Trend for Spring

    When you think of tie-dye clothing, does chic come to mind?  Probably not.  I think of summer camp.  But tie-dye is a big trend for 2019.  Here’s some tips for making tie-dye chic and wearable for anyone. A t-shirt is probably the easiest and safest choice for incorporating tie-dye into your wardrobe.  Plus you can find a lot of options when it comes to price.  If you are more daring, I do love some of the tie-dye dresses that are out.  I think they can be super fun.  I chose to go with an easier every day look for my first tie-dye outfit of the year.

    How to Wear the Jacquemus Mini Bag

    Mini accessories are bigger than ever in 2019.  We saw a lot of micro and mini bags everywhere last year and there is no sign of slowing down.  The biggest player in my opinion is Jacquemus.  Talk about some fun bags! The cuteness factor is big but the real estate is small.  So small in fact, that now you have to stop and think twice about how the heck to wear them? I must admit, I’m the type of person that likes to carry a few essentials- my full sized Saint Laurent wallet that I’ve had for several years now, my Tom Ford lipstick, keys, phone.  That is the barest of…

    Casually Luxe in Gucci Sneakers

    Gucci sneakers are instantly recognizable.  The brand does a lot of things right in my opinion.  From the classy marmont collection, to the tie-neck silk blouses, to the cutest sneaker collection you ever did see!  Gucci has a nice range in style from sophisticated chic to sporty casual.  It’s the casual side of Gucci that really has taken over the street styles. Gucci is definitely a go-to brand for cute sneakers.  They have an enormous selection all with the traditional Gucci red, blue, and green coloring.  So many in fact, that’s hard to decide when choosing a pair. It’s the best entry-level luxury purchase in my opinion.  They are not…

    The Belted Blazer for Spring

        Spring is here which means we still have cooler temperatures, especially in the morning.  We are not quite at sandal weather yet.  A belted blazer is a great transitional weather item to have in your closet.  It can be dressed up or down which is key to having a wardrobe that will always work for you. This Spring is all about the beige tones.  I’m a full supporter of this since I think beige is so pretty paired with pastels.  I decided to go for a little deeper shade when I saw this brown blazer from & Other Stories. Brown is so versatile.  I generally think of Fall…

    Mint Green for Spring

    Mint green is a color you really don’t see often, especially in clothing. Leave it to Tibi to come up with the perfect shade of mint for this Spring. Keeping with the pastel trend of the season, this shade of green also has a slight neon vibe for those who don’t want to go full neon. Adding Texture Early Spring here in NJ usually means cooler temperatures. Light sweaters are essential unless you want to cover up in jackets. They are a great choice for adding texture and layers to an outfit. This mint green one from Tibi is light and cozy. It’s probably the softest sweater I own. And…

    How to Wear the Scarf Print Trend

    The scarf print has been around for decades.  We can thank Hermès for introducing this print which has become synonymous to the brand.  But we no longer see the traditional print on scarves alone.  Now the iconic scarf print is everywhere from blouses, skirts, and dresses.  Here’s how you can wear the scarf print to elevate your look without the luxury prices. I love adding a cozy sweater to a midi skirt.  It is a classic yet modern outfit that can take you through almost any occasion.  I think the sweater makes the look a little more casual than the matching set shown below, but not too casual.  The scarf print…
