Ruffles and Bows

Does anyone remember when there was a pay phone around every corner? There was a time when some of us carried around quarters or phone cards. It was really neat to come across a functioning pay phone and it even came with the yellow pages! Did I make a phone call? No…. I have a cell phone for that now. How far we’ve all come to have a device that fits in our hand!

It’s the first week of December! Is it just me, or did the weather start getting colder? Here’s a bold yet wearable look as the temperatures keep dropping. This is quite a busy dress, there’s a lot going on here. I really like the maroon/ wine shade, it’s a nice hue for the fall/ winter seasons. I love bows, ties and ruffles and this floral, high waisted dress had it all. There really is quite a lot going on, but it is wearable. I felt so feminine and loved the movement from the ruffles. Ruffles and bows aren’t just for little girls. Just like unicorns, they’re for everyone!

Faux Pearls Faux Suede

52DB57AF-1464-438E-8B59-E8593CD905EA

I can’t get enough of skirts and OTK (over the knee boots). I’ve been wearing them untill the weather dictates it’s time for tights/stockings/ leggings. Fortunately,  I live in Seattle and while it’s definately been rainy, it hasn’t been freezing cold yet.

 

My Wednesday “hump day”, Outfit of the day is a faux pearl cream sweater and a faux suede camel skirt. Honestly. I feel that both the sweater and the skirt are closet essentials. They’re both so versitile, and you can wear or mix/ match with so much of what you already have. I usually lean towards bold, bright colors and prints but I’m learning that neutrals can make a statement too.

 

 

Hope your middle of the week is going fabulous. Thanks for stopping by!

Maximize Your Mini

3E2C787E-CFCF-4701-87EC-65C6174B57B7

“Look in the mirror and ask yourself-what do I want to do everyday for the rest of my life? Then go do that.” Gary Vaynerchuk

 

Rise and grind… it’s Monday, grab your morning coffee and start your day. My morning routine typically starts at 530 am with a cup of coffee, and either music or a tv show playing in the background as I’m getting ready.  Feeding your mind is so important, that I decided to change things up a little. I didn’t give up my coffee but I did change the things I listened to. I began listening to Gary V while I was doing my hair/ makeup and Zig Ziegler on my commutes. Instead of a jumpstart on my day, I felt a jumpstart on my life. For myself, I wanted to stay motivated, inspired and enrich my mind. This has been a way for me to maximize my time even when I’m busy with other things.

 

The mini skirt…. it’s brazen, it’s bold, its a sexy look. It’s not just for going out, you can rock the mini day or night. Wearing a mini skirt, can make you feel a little exposed. Adding a cardigan or jacket makes it a cute and wearable look. A body suit underneath keeps everything in place all day without adjusting.

 

Maximize your day and rock that mini! What are your morning rituals and tips to stay motivated? Don’t let that mini skirt hide in your closet…. be bold, maximize it!

Bodysuit Bliss

Hello and hope your start of the week is going great! As the weather has been getting cooler, I’ve been reaching for my skirts more often. I tend to wear skirts more in the fall/ winter seasons because it’s easier to layer.

Finding a gorgeous skirt to wear is the easy part. Pairing the skirt with a shirt can get a little tricky. Different shirts can be too bulky, doesn’t stay tucked in, bunches up or just doesn’t look right with that perfect skirt. I’m guilty of getting a fabulous skirt and then it ends up sitting in the closet because unworn and unloved because I didn’t have a shirt that looked cohesive. Enter the world of bodysuits…

Bodysuits are my version of the essential T shirt. I consider them staples in my wardrobe. They come in a plethora of colors to mix / match and coordinate a lot of of what’s already in your closet. Bodysuits are form fitting and I love how they stay in place, without tugging or the awkward adjusting throughout the day.

Pink is my favorite color and I adore all versions of it. A bold fuchsia gives a pop of flair, in time for the holiday festivities. I love a good pleated skirt and I really enjoyed the movement with ever step!

Hope you liked the look! Thank you for stopping by!

Cozy Up to Fall

0077704A-A246-48E1-AB43-D16FB04A2884

  Hello and welcome! I love the fall. The cool, crisp air and changing leaves are almost at its end.  Fall colors are warm and rich earth tones. Think orange, yellow, deep reds/ maroons, browns and neutral green.

  The fall season is great for bringing out your jackets and sweaters. Yes, it’s sweater weather! Cozy, fuzzy knits are perfect for those bristling days.

  Today I paired a fuzzy mustard yellow sweater and plaid/ houndstooth skirt.  The OTK (over the knee/ thigh high boots) pairs well with shorter length skirts.
