lace-up flats

Just Peachy: A Nude Variation


Hello friends! I sincerely apologize that it has been so long since my last blog post.  With family in town recently it has been hectic & the transitional spring weather has not exactly been cooperating during the weekends lately.

Nonetheless, I wanted to bring to the blog a cute look that involves peachy tones & dark blue hues.  Currently in North Carolina, the weather is fluxing back & forth between the 80’s and the 60’s, with varying temperatures in the evenings.

Therefore, I wanted to bring a look to you that would work during the day, but also included pieces that you could pair with other items in your closet that would be appropriate for those evenings with a bit of a chill in the air.

As shown above, for daytime, I layered a gorgeous peach  leather jacket, over a simple navy tank with dark denim skinny jeans & peachy nude lace-up Coach flats.  These flats are seriously the most comfortable lace-ups I have found, and they are the only ones I wear! And for evening, you can easily wear this jacket over a dressy cream or black top with nude pumps for classy, yet sophisticated look.

I hope you’ll give one or two of these beautiful pieces a try, I promise they will be a welcome & highly utilized addition to your wardrobe! Have a wonderful & productive rest of your week my loves! xoxo ♥♥

The warm weather must-have top

Hello loves!! Today I am bringing to the blog this gorgeous sheer top with unique geometric detailing by Shop Pink Blush.  Part of the reason I am so in love with it is because it is the perfect length to be worn as a tunic over leggings or even as a cover-up over a swim-suit.  But you can also just as easily wear it over your favorite pair of skinny jeans.

It is effortlessly comfortable and the perfect casual but slightly dressy top.  It will definitely succeed in kicking your daytime look up a notch.  Now, because it is sheer, you can wear virtually any color tank top underneath to completely change the overall mood of the look.  If you wear it over a neutral tank such as white or nude, you can make it look more sweet & refreshing.

If you want to make it look more fun, daring & a little sexy, you can wear it over a colored lace tank or even a crop top.  The choice is yours & it is completely up to you to make the look your own depending on your personality!

As shown above, I created two different but equally cute & feminine looks with this top.  One with black distressed denim & lace-ups for when you are on the go during the day.  And one with light blue boyfriend fit distressed denim & nude pumps, perfect for meeting your bestie for happy hour!  Both looks I accessorized with a Rebecca Minkoff bag that is the ideal size to fit your daily needs that can be worn as a shoulder bag or as a cross-body.

Now, if you have not visited their Shop Pink Blush online site, I highly recommend taking a look.  They have hundreds of cute tops in a multitude of styles & fits to suit just about every girl’s needs.  They also have adorable dresses & maxis that are perfect for the upcoming warm weather months, and a maternity shop if you are on a search for looks to flatter your bump!

And there you have it friends! Wishing you the perfect ending to your week.  It is so hard to believe it’s the last weekend in February! I don’t know about you but once March hits I am in full-on spring mode regardless of the temps!! xoxo ♥♥

Preppy Casual

Happy Sunday my friends! Today I am bringing to you the perfect weekend preppy casual ensemble.  Now, while you may be fully in the throws of winter if you are in the northern half of the US, down in the Carolinas, it is still in the 40’s-50’s.  Which is perfect vest weather!

One of my favorite looks is to combine a classic Ralph Lauren Oxford in your choice of color, with a fitted puffer vest.  Especially one with gold hardware like the one shown above.  This will succeed in adding an element of interest to your outfit, while making it look more polished & like you are heading out to brunch or to do a little shopping, and less like you are getting ready to simply head the gym.

Personally, I like to play a little with the monochromatic look & wear a pair of skinny jeans similar in color to the vest, and then have my handbag be the standout with a timeless piece or a great pop of color.  But you could easily accomplish the same idea with a scarf in a bright hue or eye catching pattern if you prefer.

Top it off with a pair of trendy yet completely comfortable and stylish lace-up flats, and your look is complete!  Now, I must admit, not all trends are comfortable, but you just have to try the lace-up flat trend.  I promise they will be your new best friends as they literally go with anything and work in virtually any season!

I hope you have fun with this look, as it is literally one of my favorite weekend outfits no matter what you may be up to.  It is so simple, classy, & easy.  Click through the items I linked below, I promise you are sure to find one that is meant for you! Enjoy the rest of your weekend & be sure to find some time to relax! xoxo ♥♥

Bold color & fall staples

Hello loves and happy weekend! Today, I am bringing to you wardrobe staples, & a bold color addition that you need in your life.  Now, this may seem obvious, but it is important to make the most out of your money.

When it comes to fashion, the best way to do this is by filling your closet with neutral pieces in nude, black, white, & gray.  This will result in an extremely versatile wardrobe, which is what we all want and need.  And if you don’t think you need a versatile wardrobe, I am telling you that you do!  That being said, neutrals are especially key when it comes to jeans & shoes.

Now, as you may have noticed, I am all about pops of color.   Mostly because you can make a brightly colored shirt or bag your pop of color, and the staple pieces in your wardrobe suddenly look fresh & new again.

Which is why I am bringing to the blog this outfit which is one of my favorites this fall!  Start with the amazing, beautiful, shiny bright pink pullover shown above, combine it with a pair of boyfriend jeans, & nude lace-up flats and you are set!  It’s so comfy casual, and the pullover is perfect for wearing around the house or out for a lunch date, or a day of shopping.  And you can dress it up with a statement necklace & pumps, or pair it with boyfriend jeans & lace-up flats as I did above & you are ready for just about anything you need to do in your busy life during your busy day!

Have a fabulous week ahead & a safe, happy, & drama-free Thanksgiving! Remember, there isn’t anything a good bottle of wine can’t fix! xoxo ♥♥
