Always a Dress Girl

I think that dresses are the most easiest and stylish piece of attire that any woman can wear. An all in one outfit with no stress of finding coordinating individual clothing that comes together to make a full look. This dress is one of my favorites and it is no surprise that it is animal print. I like the thicker material that it is constructed with, which makes it great for Fall. I bought this dress at a local boutique (Work the Metal), but have linked similar ones below. I paired it with black booties, a black leather cross body, added some color with my sunnies and these cute earrings.

All Around the Merry Go Round

Happy Monday! Where has the weekend gone?!? I feel like every weekend I have good intentions to get multiple thing accomplished, then I blink and it is Sunday night. Ugh! Does this happen to anyone one else? Time needs to slow down so I can get through my to do list.

Anyway, summer is almost over so I thought it was a perfect time to wear this Zaful two-piece floral short set. It is comfy and casual, great for a hot end of the season summer’s day. I accessorized with a tan wristlet, gold jewelry, and cheetah print flats. What are your end of the season favorites? Also, how awesome is this carousel (Jane’s Carousel) at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Dumbo? Amazing! A must when you visit NYC.

If you are a bride you have to prepare yourself for all the bridal showers heading your way. It is an exciting time to say the least, but what do you wear? White of course! You definitely have to stand out as the bride. So let me suggest a dress. Right now is the perfect time to find one. This season there are so many stylish dresses. You should definitely stock up for the the multiple showers, bachelorette party, and rehearsal dinner.

The dress I have on in this post (which I have had for awhile) is perfect for a bridal shower. It is sleek, two-tone (but mostly white), and the perfect length. I added some color with this turquoise necklace and brick color lipstick and a bit of pattern with leopard heels. I finished the outfit with a taupe clutch, which with be on rotation all summer.

Happy Friday! It is actually feeling like Spring today for the first time, and I couldn’t be more excited! What about you? I am so over the cold and snowy weather. Now that it has warmed up, what do you wear? Well for me its leggings of course. I love the faux leather ones, which are great for Spring, considering that in the morning and evening the temperature maybe a littler more chillier. I styled the leggings with a black tank, which is perfect for that afternoon warmer temps. I paired the outfit with a tan moto jacket to give it a little color. Added a couple of accessories and wedges and I was good to go. What are you wearing today??

Pink is My Color

When you know your color, you know your color! I have always been a lover of hot pink and thought that it looked great on my skin tone, so that is why I had to embrace this super comfy and causal dress by Agnes & Dora. Pairing it with this navy vest made the bright pink color pop and these two colors together compliment each so well. During transition seasons and weather being unpredictable, over the knee boots are a must; which go great with this outfit. I always finish my outfits with some accessories: a pom pom necklace and a suede cross body pull it all together.

Coming In Hot!!

With this weather, who doesn’t need a faux fur coat?? I mean it is perfect! This coat is from Baciano, if you have not checked them out, you should! They have some stylish on trend pieces for everyone, from dresses to jackets to sweater. This faux fur coat looks great with almost anything. I paired it here with a black Agnes & Dora dress and tan knee boots. Let’s not forget the accessories, which can make any outfit. Sunglasses, earrings (that give a pop of color), and a clutch that compliments the necklace perfectly (which was a gift from my future mother in law, all the way from Australia). How would you wear a faux fur coat?

It’s Winter

It is officially winter and although it might not feel like it, a couple days ago it did. Complete with snow! How do you dress when it’s a cold winters day? Well…..fleece leggings and over the knee boots of course. I paired these two pieces with a long sweater, a brightly colored wool coat and my favorite Scarab Beetle scarf. I finished the look with this hand-made leather cross-body that tied everything together. What is you favorite winter look? Shop mine below.

Derby Season

There are many festivities that lead up to this anticipated 2 minute horse race that takes place the first Saturday in May. Such festivities as the Derby Parade, Chow Wagon, Wine & Beer Fest, The Oaks and many more (check out the list of events here). Going to the races is usually all about the hat, but in my case it is about the fascinator.  What you choose to wear on your head is a fashion statement, so you want to choose wisely. This one is from Griffin Hatters, check them out for all your hat needs for men and women.

Sunny Day Street Style

                               
              Shop: Pants | Handbag | Flats | Vest | Blouse | Sunglasses | Nail Polish | Earrings 

Nothing like a sunny day when it has been cold and cloudy. Took the opportunity to soak up some rays yesterday with my boyfriend and his good friend that is in town from Australia. I chose a chic but comfortable look for exploring an area of town called the Highlands here in Louisville Kentucky. We also stopped for coffee at Quills, which is one of my favorite coffee shops in town. I paired black skinny jeans with one of my favorite light and flowy tunics, and a salt and pepper vest to give it a little more texture. I finished the look with purple aviator sunnies, black flats and my favorite purse.

What is your favorite sunny day outfit? Shop mine below.

Houndstooth

Shop: Coat | Earrings | Scarf | Jeans | Boots | Tote

When you find the perfect coat you just go with it! Am I right? Every time I wear this coat I get compliments on it. It is a warm, yet stylish piece. Houndstooth is a classic look and can compliment almost any outfit. I paired this one with a simple pair of jeans, riding boots, and a leather tote. I further accessorized with a plum colored scarf and earrings, which made the coat pop. Houndstooth is a great pattern to hide or shadow areas of the body that you would like to accentuate less. This coat has been in my collection for years, but I will link similar ones here and here.
