Current Crush

thick sweater, skater skirt, structured bag

I seriously cannot get enough of Song of Style's outfit. In fact, ever since I developed the crush I've been obsessively thinking of ways to recreate it (ideally with items I already have in my closet) and have come up with these variations:

1. | 2. | 3.

1. | 2. | 3.

It seems as if the skater skirt is here to stay so stock up on your favorite chunky knits, add a pop of color with this or this and you're good to go from a day of lunch and shopping to a night out!

Rock Night Out

Rock Night Out

Is there any better outfit than a sharp, black blazer (perfect closet staple item to help you buy less), classic band tee, and perfectly worn denim? I think not. Paired with a dark, vampy lip and sexy, strappy heels you are set for a night out to see a local band or grab cocktails at a swanky new lounge. I really need to get my hands on a pair of Rag & Bone/Jeans and several gorgeous pieces from Jennifer Zuener's delicately gold and perfect-for-layering collection (also dying over this).

What's your go-to, always-sexy-and-classy look for a night out?

Choose Well

A new mantra I'm trying to live by. Ever get that panicked, whimpering thought in the morning of I have nothing to wear! as you're staring at a closet completely packed with articles of clothing and shoes of every kind?? Yeah, me too. Well I'm trying a new thing called really spend time thinking about making a clothing/accessory/shoe purchase before you pull the trigger and it sits in your closet for years to come. One rule of thumb I'm implementing: asking myself can I think of 3 different outfits I can incorporate this (bootie, sweater, bracelet, whatever) into? Another great tried and true rule: Only buy something that looks absolutely amazing on! Like, it was completely made for you. What a concept, huh?

What are yours tips on choosing well and buying less? I'd love to hear them!

Messy Hair & Coffee

Is there anything better? I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend! I for one did not leave the house yesterday and it was aaaaamazing. 

Happy Monday!

Blush & Navy Crush

Blush & Navy Crush
1. | 2. | 3. | 4. | 5. | 6.

If you've perused any recent fashion mag or followed NYFW , you know blush and navy are huge for transition to Spring, and I couldn't agree more. If you consider navy to be a masculine tone and blush to be flawlessly feminine, then this combo is the perfect juxtaposition. Is there anything better than fashion juxtapositions? Leather and lace, boyfriends jeans & cropped top, moto jacket and floral dress. I think not!

Those gorgeous peachy track pants and adorable "Darling!" sweater are currently on the way to my house and I cannot wait to pair them together. I may need to make a run to Forever21 to pick up that super slouchy and super stylish beanie ASAP. How would you style navy and blush?
