Brown & Blue: Tall fringe Boots, Denim & Leather (and Cyber Monday picks)

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I thoroughly enjoyed mine and have added it to the list of great holiday memories.  I have to be honest I didn’t do anything other than create the turkey (pretty much what I do every year).  My nephew was in charge of cranberry sauce (I am going to add –  just to brag about him that it was made from scratch), my niece made the stuffing (her speciality) and I had two sets of friends over with their kids who covered the sweet potato casserole, the salad, fresh made french bread (insert emoticon with crazy eyes) and several pies from scratch.  I actually felt bad I had not done more!  But it was a great day making great memories.

Since we are experiencing a cold snap (thank goodness) I have taken out some tall boots.  These fringe boots are one of my oldies but goodies and honestly they make everything look good.  I added the faux leather skirt and played with proportions with the crop top.  Gold accessories rounded it all out.

Check out my cyber monday picks below.

Cobalt Blue, Black & White Stripes

Hello lovelies!

I am just finishing up my visit to Ohio and my nephew’s baptism was wonderful.  He had the best temperament and was the perfect gentleman throughout the whole process.  Here is what I wore to his baptism – he deserved a little dress up.  And extra bonus – the dress doesn’t wrinkle because it is a scuba like material.

Midi Skirt restyle: Sequin Lips & Louboutins

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I had a great weekend other than the Game of Thrones finale last night.  I always read the book first but for GoT I like watching the series and don’t want to know what is coming.  I am not so sure about this anymore since I have no idea what happened last night.  Spoiler alert – Jon Snow can’t possibly be dead, can he??  If he is truly gone – I am going to be very disappointed (that is putting it mildly).

Today, I want to share my Banana Republic midi skirt restyle.  I loved it uptown chic (seen here) but now I felt it needed a downtown cool vibe.  Best way to do that – a sequined T-shirt.

Maroon Fever

Hello lovelies!

It is always great to get away to my happy place – Rosemary Beach.  As I have mentioned, I am in the process of building a place there and I am so excited about it!!  Therefore in late 2015 or early 2016 there will be tons of new OOTDs.  Today, I want to share a OOTD I took a few weeks ago in October.

Casual Travel Style – Crop Top & Wedge Sneaker

Hello lovelies from the Nation’s Capital!

I just arrived in Washington, DC yesterday and I have to say I love this city as much today as I did when I went to college and law school here (years ago – let’s not get into the numbers). I am here visiting family and friends and I cannot wait to explore how much this city has changed since my last visit, which was quite some time ago. Today I want to share my travel outfit from yesterday – crop top and all.

Abstract Print Dress Doing Double Duty As A Top

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far!

The start of summer is officially here and that means wearing fun, bright colors, which instantly made me think of this Robert Rodriguez dress. One of my favorite things is clothing and accessories that can be worn in many different ways – I always advise my clients to buy items that are multi-functional (it is great value when one item can be worn again and again in many situations!) I wore this dress in a past post here and decided to restyle the dress as a top because I love the color and pattern.

All My Favorites – Blush Pink Moto & Fuchsia Leather

Hi lovelies!

Hope everyone has had a wonderful week! Mine has been rather busy, and I am really looking forward to the weekend! I must confess that I am in a cleaning frenzy – I have been slammed with work so clutter has taken over my house, and I spent quite a few hours the past few days combing through the madness. It is such a gratifying feeling (is it just me or does everyone feel this way post a good spring cleaning?)

To celebrate I treated myself to a fun girl’s lunch, and decided to combine two of my favorite colors today – fuchsia and blush pink!

Multi-tasking OOTD – Blazer, Leather Leggings & Pops of Silver

Hello lovelies!

I hope everyone is having a great week!  We have been experiencing a slight temperature dip recently – perhaps the last hooray before the heat begins.  I decided to use multiple layers and all my favorite cold weather items – blazer, leather leggings, button down and skinny belt.
