Pink and Blue


Cardigan: Ann Taylor Loft, Shirt: Ann Taylor, Skirt: French Connection, Shoes: BCBG Generation, Bag: Vintage, Watch: Michael Kors, Ring: Forever 21, Earrings: H&M

I love the pattern on this Ann Taylor Loft Cardigan.  Every time I wear it I find myself reaching for blue to pair it with. I think the two colors go very nicely together.


On another note, I will be getting a new camera VERY soon. Picture clarity at last!

Heading home on a crisp Sunday morning.

On Friday I scurried off to Laguna Beach for a quick getaway. It was the perfect weekend for a beach trip. With the weather reaching over 80 degrees it was just right for laying poolside, and walking in the sand. I never thought I would be having a beach weekend in January, but I sure am grateful.

So Jackie O






Dress: Taylor, Shoes: DSW, Bag: Giani Bernini, Earrings: Vintage, Watch: Michael Kors, Sunglasses: Prada

Something about this wonderful, silk, printed dress just screams Jackie O to me. I believe it's the neckline. Either way it is perfect for the warm weather we are having right now in LA.


Jackie Kennedy

What a lovely (and not to mention incredibly stylish) lady.

With Studs





Shirt: Design History, Skirt: Rhapsody, Shoes: Guess, Blazer: Vintage, Bag: Giani Bernini, Sunglasses: Prada, Watch: Kessaris Quartz, Earrings: H&M

Such a lovely day, perfect for a nice full skirt. I find that full skirts are so flattering, especially for the legs. What I love most about this skirt are the stud-like buttons, it gives a girly-girl silhouette just a little bit of edge. Paired with my studded Guess pumps it's a perfect match!

Tweed



Jacket: Alfani, Cami: H&M, Pants: Express, Shoes: DSW, Bag: Alfani, Necklace: J Crew, Earrings: H&M, Watch: Michael Kors

Tweed is one of my favorite materials because of it's versatility. I can wear this jacket with anything from palazzo pants, to tailored dresses. Also tweed is extremely durable, and not to mention chic -- you can keep it for years!

Plaid and a Rainy Day


 
  Blazer: H&M, Turtleneck: Zara, Pants: H&M, Shoes: Nine West, Watch: Michael Kors, Bag: Giani Bernini

 I woke up to the pitter patter of rain this morning and I just knew that these plaid pants would be a great option. They are long enough to keep me warm and short enough to not get wet on the bottom from puddles. At last, I have out smarted the rain.

Spotted






Shirt: J Crew (recent), Jeans: Zara, Blazer: Sisley, Scarf: Vintage, Shoes: Nine West, Bag: Alfani, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets and Ring: Forever 21, Earrings: H&M

I have an obsession with scarves! I love them so much and my collection is always evolving; it's just something about their silkiness and the great colors and patterns on them that speaks to me. I think that a great scarf can spice up almost any outfit.

Paisley, Pink, and Gold.





Blouse: Forever 21, Skirt: BCBG, Shoes: BCBG Generation, Jacket: Eurochic Boutique, Bag: Alfani, Watch: Michael Kors, Earrings: H&M

I love when I have an excuse to pull out this gorgeous pink jacket! It's double breasted with these beautiful gold buttons and it has the most amazing full skirt. What more could one ask for in a jacket?

Red on Royal




 Dress: ASOS, Cardigan: Vintage, Coat: ASOS, Shoes: Nine West, Bag: Prada, Necklace: Tiffany & Co., Watch: Kessaris Quartz, Earrings: H&M
I found this great black cardigan at a vintage store about a year ago. It's one of my favorites because of the beautiful bead work on the trim. So this morning, I just knew it would go perfect with my royal blue dress. Royal blue is such a wonderfully rich color, and I happen to think that it goes great with red!

Not So Black and White



Blouse: Ann Taylor, Skit: No Appointment Necessary, Coat: Ann Taylor, Necklace: Amrita Singh, Watch: Michael Kors, Earrings: H&M (Gold Pearl Studs) Sunglasses: Burberry, Bag: Prada, Shoes: Stuart Weitzman

A new take on old classics; I spiced up the typical white blouse and black skirt combo with some glam accessories. I added an Amrita Singh necklace with red stones and a gold trim for a pop of color. And then paired it with Stuart Weitzman pumps which are always a favorite of mine, I just love the gold chain detail!

Chanel Esque



Jacket: Forever 21, Cami: H&M, Skirt: Zara, Shoes: DSW, Watch: Kessaris Quartz, Earrings: Forever 21, Necklace: Tiffany & Co., Bag: Prada

Although today wasn't Monday, it kind of was if you had yesterday off -- like me. On Monday I try to wear something that I really like, in the hopes that it will lift my spirit, since it's usually a crazy day. Today I enlisted the help of this lovely Chanel-esque jacket to do the trick. Needless to say, it worked!
