I know, I know–fishnets are everywhere. And I’ll be honest, they’re getting a tad overplayed. But, I shot this look back in February and didn’t have time to blog about it until now. While I am growing tired of fishies under jeans (unless they’re supper baggie tattered jeans) I’m still feeling fishnets under pants in the form of sporty slacks, tuxedo trousers and joggers. It’s this unique balance of spray and trashy / sexy that seems to work well together.  read more

I’ve always had a soft spot for the military trend. I adore the structure and status of a military jacket–clean, tailored lines, shiny gold buttons, and if you’re lucky, a shoulder pad. There’s something so undeniably chic about the military trend, which is why I am so excited to shop spring military jackets right now. Sure, you can wear them with a basic tee and jeans, but I like to get crafty with them. Recently, I styled this vintage military blazer with a lace dress and tights for an irreverent, British vibe. This go around, I made my look more spring with a long, stripe blouse (worn here) over a mini skirt with Chelsea boots. The result is this perfect hybrid of militant, school girl chic with a dash of elegance via sleek accessories. Long shirts with barely there skirts add an unexpected twist to the classic military blazer and pant uniform, don’t you think? I can’t wait to add even more spring military jackets to my wardrobe, which is why I’ve rounded up my favorites for you to shop below! read more

You can’t deny that ruffles have been having a major moment. Whether it’s a ruffle hem, sleeve or neckline, ruffles keep popping up in unexpected places. My new fave way to wear them is on bold ruffle sleeve tops. Something about large, voluminous sleeves adds extra drama to even the most basic jeans and heel combos.

The only downfall of wearing bold ruffle sleeves is that you can’t put them into just any jacket because your arms won’t fit. My solution? A pretty tuxedo vest so that my bold ruffle sleeves can have their moment. This whole look is classic and simple–perfect for running around town for a day of meetings and events! Also–how gorgie is my bright plum Burberry lipstick? It’s the most delicious shade of rich pink. Shop my exact look below, along with more of my fave ruffle sleeve tops in the shopping gallery! read more

WHITE SHIRT REDUX

One of the trends I really love for spring and summer is the creative reinvention of the white button down. Or as the fashion set is calling it, the white shirt redux. For quick clarification–redux means “brought back or revival.” Now I’m not saying that white shirts ever really went anywhere, but I predict we’ll be seeing white shirts worn in a variety of new ways and morphed into unique shapes and silhouettes. You guys know by now that button ups are a staple of mine, and I’m always up for a styling challenge… especially if it involves reinventing a classic! read more
