September skirt

Ever met a piece of clothing that is perfect for right now!? If I had to pick an item out of my closet to symbolize September – with it’s beauty and it’s late-summer weather, it would be this midi skirt.

Talk about love at first twirl!!! The soft baby blue color paired with a peak-a-boo panel is a skirt dream come true. I am head over heels in love with the midi trend (exhibit A and exhibit B). This lady-like trendy skirt is easily going to be my most frequented transition piece with the current changing seasons. Anytime I can find a piece of clothing that is as comfortable as it is stylish, I am immediately sold.

Transition style: Fall Accents

Happy Hump Day! In the last few weeks of summer, it is likely to get excited about the new and upcoming fall fashion that is already so prevalent in all the stores. But, when  the temperatures are still soaring high it is hard to incorporate fall weather friendly items into your outfit. My solution is to add fall accents. This cotton tee with faux-leather details is soft and breezy enough for a warm afternoon. When paired with a skater skirt in a deep plum color, the outfit will make you look fall ready while keeping you comfortable in the final days of summer.

Pair the look with some neutral accessories and a statement necklace to match the high neckline and ready to conquer your day in style.

Black and White

jumpsuit x SP 4 Happy Monday! Wasn’t the weekend too short as always?!! Thankfully some outfits work equally well from weekend to weekday. This dark light-weight jersey romper perfectly executes that attitude. The truth is I love this comfortable romper. Whether you’re tall, petite or curvy, it works well with all body types. I absolutely love the cuffs at the bottom, and even better I can think of a million different ways to wear it. It makes a great date outfit paired with heels plus a bold lipstick. Or add a structured jacket to make it work friendly. Summer-time does mean fun and light work-wear, right?!  I think the next way I wear it will be with a denim shirt tied around my waist and chunky boots. Continue reading

Casual Denim

casual x SP Let’s just say no matter how many pretty dresses I wear I am a sucker for a good fitting denim. You can easily dress it up with a blouse and heels or go for a casual look paired with sandals. I wore this outfit last Sunday for a casual Sunday-Funday date with the husband. I love the pairing of the flowy peasant blouse with the flattering boot cut jean. Perfect outfit to flaunt my new haircut. Continue reading

Summertime Ease

Summertime ease x SP This season I am leaning towards simple and easy styles. I love dressing up but, most days you can find me in a no-fuss simple colorful sundress. It is always wise to keep a comfy cover up with you. I rely on this sweater way more than I planned to when I was buying it. My go-to summer sweater. Summertime ease x SP 4Today is one of those rare days where it rains and shines at the exact same time. It’s killer on a good hair day but sans the hair issue, it’s really quite nice. Warm sunshine, cool rain. It could be a lot worse — I mean it could be super windy. I’ll take misty rain over wild wind any day of the week. (If you’ve ever wondered why I touch my hair so much in posts it’s because it’s windy and I’m trying to hold my hair down so I don’t look crazy). Continue reading

Tropical Vacation

I love summer. It means trips to all my favorite street fairs and theme parks. This romper was one of those random finds at Forever 21. I saw this adorable print and I knew I had to pick it up. I just thought how perfect for summer. ‘Island chic’ is my current love in the summer trends.
