Blazer of Glory

One thing I feel like I often neglect to write about on this blog is the importance of owning a fantastic black blazer.  I think because I wear them for work nearly every day, I forget that it’s a piece not everyone might own.  But with the weather changing, I am finding that I am reaching for my blazers not only for work, but also to wear as a light jacket back to my favorite destroyed skinnies and a tried-and-true graphic tee.  They really are the perfect piece for so many different occasions and something everyone should have in their closet…

I hope you all had a fantastic weekend.  I can hardly believe it’s Monday already again. Sometimes I swear it feels like it’s always Monday, don’t you think?

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Foiled

I love silver. And metallics. And sparkles. In fact, when I was in high school, my girlfriends and I loved the Spice Girls so much that we each had our own Spice Girl name. And I was Sparkle Spice. Go figure. So needless to say, I am loving the sequin and sparkle t-shirt trend this season. Especially when paired back to destroyed jeans and other accessories of a like metallic, for a sparkly, yet monochromatic look…

So I’ve got a question.  What do you all think of my silver Michael Kors bag?  I got it for a steal at Macy’s, but am on the fence as to whether or not it’s a keeper.  Would love to know if you guys think I should love it or leave it.

Pretty in Pink

Oh how I love pink. All shades of pink, and anything that comes in pink. And so, when I saw that one of the things on JCrew’s Fall 2013 trend report was mixing different shades of the same color, I thought I’d get a jump-start and test out the look with a summer outfit composed of a few of my favorite things. Which of course, should come as no surprise, are all shades of pink…

I know I am personally really excited about this new trend and can’t wait to experiment with it.  Especially as we get closer and closer to the Fall season.  But I would love to know, what do you all think?

Happy Tuesday!

Strappy

One of my very favorite looks of the moment is barely there, feminine pumps back to destroyed boyfriend jeans. I swear, something about those sweet and sassy combos get me every time (especially when you throw polka dots into the mix)…

Stormy Weather

While I spend a lot of time on the road for my job, one of the perks of all of the travel is that every couple of months, I get to take a trip back to my home state of Montana. And depending on the time of year and our schedules, sometimes it works out (like it did this past weekend) that J can come and join me and we can sneak in a long weekend in one of our favorite places-which also happens to be where we first met. And while the weather was cold and stormy (which required a little more layering than I’m used to this time of year), we still managed to have a great time with friends, visited all of our favorites places (and discovered some new), and were even able to sneak in a few miles on the bikes in between showers…

Summer Brights

I love neon. Especially a nice, bright neon yellow. And while it isn’t the easiest shade to wear, yellow in general is my absolute favorite color, so I’m partial. Which is why, of course, I couldn’t resist this pretty top. And while I can’t recommend this hue for everyone, what I can recommend is a pretty, dressed-up tank back to ripped jeans and heels for a summer night out on the town…

Date Night

I love a good date night outfit. And while I normally use date night as an excuse to wear a cute dress or skirt, sometimes you just can’t beat a good pair of jeans and a sparkly top. Especially when you add some fun accessories…

And of course in addition to a great outfit, who doesn’t love a cute pair of shoes?  And even better?  A cute, comfy, and, affordable pair of shoes!  And these wedges fit the bill.  In fact, I have them in another color (which you can see here) and I’m pretty sure both pairs will be important staples in my wardrobe this summer.  Plus, right now they are on sale for under $30.  Get them before they’re gone!!
