Tied Up

I always love the look of tying a jacket or shirt around your waist, so I’m obviously a fan of the built-in version this season.  It’s a great twist on a typical summer dress and is a super easy style to dress up or dress down. Plus, this particular dress is on major sale right now and I can’t recommend it enough!

Polka Dot

I have been on the hunt for the perfect black faux fur vest for months. and finally found this cute one at Nordstrom.  And let me tell you, this vest is my new favorite thing in my closet.  in fact, I have already worn it twice in the past week!  Not only is it super soft and flattering, and but it’s a great price point too!  So if you have been wanting to add a black faux fur vest to your closet this year, then look no further!

Shades of Pink (and gray!)

I’m baaaaaack!!!! 🙂 Hope you guys don’t mind that I took a few days off from sharing outfit inspiration to enjoy my vacay in Nicaragua with my hubby.  We had such a fun and relaxing time-but it’s nice to be back home and feels even better to be getting back into a routine-which of course, includes blogging!

So if you hadn’t already noticed, I’ve been really into a neutrals as of late.  And as a professed lover of color, this is definitely a change for me.  But one combo I have always, loved, whether I am in a neutral or color phase, has always been pale pink and gray.  It is such a timeless and simple combo and perfect back to a bright pink pump if you are looking to add a little extra punch of color!

Camo Pants

As I’ve mentioned before in a few posts, I am all over the camo trend right now.  And when I spotted these pants at the Gap, I knew I had to have them for the Fall season.  But apparently so did plenty of other people, because they sold out in my size almost immediately (they also sold out when they had a similar version in Spring).  So like the patient fashionista that I am, I waited.  And guess what?  I ended up finding them in my size on the clearance rack just a couple of weeks ago for a steal of a price.  Talk about a stroke of good luck.  Don’t you just love happy endings like that?

In Spades

I have such a sweet husband. So sweet in fact, that he got me a gorgeous, bright pink Kate Spade bag for Christmas. I had been eyeing it for quite some time, but couldn’t decide if I should buy a shocking pink bag in the dead of winter. So I was absolutely thrilled that he made the decision for me. And I must say, I really love carrying such a vibrant bag this time of year.  It is the perfect punch of color on dreary days and will transition perfectly into spring and summer weather!

This denim vest was one of my favorite pieces over the summer.  And when I pulled it out to pack for our trip to Nicaragua, I thought I might try styling it back to a silk blouse to change things up a bit.  And I must say I love the element of casual cool that it brings to this outfit.  So much so, that I am looking forward to styling it other ways this winter.  I love versatility!

Another Day, Another Dot

I write a lot about mixing prints, but another fun fashion trend to try is mixing the same prints together. And really, it’s a pretty simple thing to do. All you have to do is make sure one is larger than the other, and that the colors compliment each other. You can also check out a post I did on mixing stripes here.
