Neon

You all probably know by now what a huge fan I am of army green.  But what you might not know, is that one of my favorite ways to wear it is with neon or a bright pop of color.  It’s a really easy way to change-up pieces you already have in your closet and give them a fresh new look.

Plus, I still can’t get over this studded jacket.  I’ve had it for 2 years now and I wear it all the time.  I would highly recommend it if you have been eyeing it.  It literally goes with everything and is fantastic quality.  You can also see how I styled it in the black here.

And can we just talk about the SNOW on the ground for a minute?  So crazy.  It was 70 on Monday, and then we had a huge storm roll in on Tuesday.  My poor flowers, and all of the blossoms on the trees!  Fortunately it’s supposed to warm up again over the weekend.  Just in time for Easter!

Tailor Made

As I’ve gotten older, I have learned the importance of a good tailor.  And that just because something doesn’t fit you off the rack, doesn’t mean that it can’t still work for you.  And the dress in today’s post is the perfect example.  My mom and I stumbled on this gem at Anthropologie when my parents were in town a couple of weekends ago.  It was originally $228 and we found it on the sale rack marked down to $48 (um, WOW!).  It was the gorgeous fabric that initially drew me to it, but the original length was tea length and it just swallowed me up and was really unflattering.  But neither of us could get over the fabric (you should see it in person!) so we hatched a plan to have it shortened and I took it to my tailor (who also couldn’t get over the fabric), and he shortened it for me for a mere $20.  And I have to say, I think it is one of my very favorite dresses in my closet right now.  I guess it goes to show that it can be worth it to think outside of the box a little bit.  So if you don’t have a tailor, I would definitely suggest finding a good one in your neighborhood-you just never know when they might come in handy!

Tried and Tulle

To say I can’t get enough this Lookbook Store jacket would be an understatement.  I adore it.  I also adore this American Eagle dress-even though it’s a couple of years old.  And with the tulle trend still in frenzy mode, I am certainly glad that I have held onto it.  It’s definitely on frequent repeat in my closet and even on the blog!  You can see another favorite way I’ve styled it here

So I have to say, I absolutely LOVE these shoes, and I am super bummed about the dye transfer on them around my ankles (yikes!!).  So I have to ask, does anyone out there have any good products or remedies to remove denim markings from suede?  Please share if you do!  Otherwise, these shoes are going to have to be worn with pants only from here on out!

Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments and support.  I appreciate you guys so much!

Boots

I have a slight obsession with cognac boots-or more specifically these cognac boots.  I wear them more than any other piece of footwear that I own and I am feeling pretty bummed that they are all but about worn out.  And because I knew this would most likely be their last season, I have been on the hunt for a replacement pair all fall.  And surprisingly I have had absolutely zero luck.  Maybe I’ve set my standards too high, but how hard could it possibly be to find a pair in the right shade of cognac with a low heel (wedge or stacked), wide enough to fit my calves, that go with everything, and are neither too dressy, nor too casual?  Apparently it’s nearly impossible.  Looks like a trip to the cobbler is in my very near future-I need all the help I can get prolonging the life of these babies…
