Transitioning to Spring with Pattern and Color

Some days it might not feel like it, especially with this crazy snow, but the first day of Spring is literally around the corner. I am looking forward to warmer weather and bright colors as you can see from my outfit. This Spring I am all about the bold solids and leopard anything. In my book leopard will always be a neutral, and this blouse compliments almost any bold color you can find. For this outfit I paired a yellow blazer with cream and gold details, with this leopard blouse. If that was not enough pattern and color I added a pop of red with a clutch and lipstick. Finishing the look with black leggings and spiked heels. This will definitively be a go to for the warmer weather. What does you Spring outfit look like? Shop mine below.

Seeing Red

                      
           Shop: Pants | Shirt | Lipstick | Handbag | Sunglasses | Necklace | Watch | Bracelet | Shoes 

A red pant and red lipstick…..what else do you need!?! Honestly, red lipstick is a staple in my book and this one here is my favorite. With a red lip why not throw on some red pants, like I did in this outfit. Pair your bold pants with a less over the top button down shirt. 
One thing I love in a outfit is pattern mixing, stripes with leopard print…Yes Please! What are your favorite pattens to mix? Leopard goes with anything, in my book, because it’s a neutral. I completed the outfit with a cross body and gold jewelry. Shop my look below.

Valentine’s Day Outfit Inspo

Valentine’s Day is around the corner. Do you have your outfit ready? If not let me help you with a little outfit inspiration. As you know red and pink are the colors for the occasion, but I usually enjoy them more as accents instead of having an outfit that is one solid color.
For this Valentine’s day outfit inspo I am loving a dress, so this gold and ivory one is perfect. Find a similar one here and here.  I paired it with my red accents, which include a blazer and a statement necklace. I finished the outfit with a little leopard print, which are my favorite pair of heels and this clutch. What is your outfit inspiration? Shop mine below.

Velvet

A blazer is all you need to take your otherwise boring outfit and make it stylish again. During the winter a velvet blazer is a must, find a similar one here. Not only is it fashionable, it can be paired with many existing items in your closet, such as a dress or skirt, and skinny jeans; as I did with this look. I wore a brightly colored shirt (similar here) and accessorized with leopard print heels, a tan clutch and a red lip. This is a simple outfit to recreate. What are some of your favorite finds for winter? Shop mine below.

thredUP

One of my style resolutions for the new year is to clean out my closet and add a couple staple pieces that are timeless and versatile. What is more timeless than a little black dress?

I found this number at thredUP, check out their online store here. thredUp is a web based consignment store that specializes in women and kid’s second-hand fashion. Who is your favorite designer? A couple of mine are Ralph Lauren and Banana Republic. No matter who they are I am sure thredUp has what you are looking for at a fraction of the price. You can save up to 90% off of your favorite brands. I found this flirty little black dress, which is a Rachel Zoe, at thredUP for less than $50. Check out all their great designer women’s clothing here.  New customers get 40% off their first purchase using code: 40FORYOU. After you do that closet clean out you can sell your clothes on thredUp and earn some money, more on that program here.

 I styled this fit and flare dress with a a gray leather jacket, silver heels, and a light blue clutch to give it a pop of color. I love wearing mostly all black and giving a little color with details here and there. Check out the look and shop it below. Hope you enjoy!
