Minty Leopard

Tuesday, October 29, 2013

 Good news for all you pastel-loving fashionistas: dreamy hues like lavender and mint are here to stay. All. Winter. Long. 
Pair neutral accessories with your brighter pieces in order to make them fall & winter appropriate. 
Adding a touch of leopard is always classy, sophisticated, and timeless. Leopard is a wonderful pattern to compliment your pastels - especially when the temperatures drop! 
Gold accessories add an overall warmth to your entire look. Try experimenting with warm metallic nail polishes too!

Mint & leopard, what a glorious pair. It's a combo that can easily transition your outfit from a day at the office to a night on the town. Leopard adds attitude and style while mint sits pretty and provides an overall freshness and youth to your ensemble. 

I love that by adding a few neutral accessories, some gold tones here and there, and pops of leopard, mint is suddenly the new 'it' color of fall. Yes my friends, it is that easy!

A New Kind Of Chic

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Remember back in elementary school when glasses were for nerds? Well my friends, the times have changed and now nerdy chic is the new chic!  
As soon as I was old enough for contacts I jumped for joy and immediately took the opportunity to leave my four-eyes days behind. But glasses have come so far since then, and recently they've become the essential accessory for a quirky and flirty look. 
I am absolutely in love with my new glasses courtesy of Firmoo - they made me realize for myself that glasses can be worn in style...and should be. 

 The above pair is what you see me wearing in my pictures (#CP6061). I love the versatility of these glasses and how they truly make a statement. The bold thick frames speak volumes about the confidence of the wearer. 

 These are other pairs of Firmoo glasses that I find fashionable and stylish. Nothing's wrong with having a pair of glasses to match every mood!

Fall Trifecta

Friday, October 11, 2013

The trendiest must-have pieces for fall are simple and super easy to incorporate into any wardrobe...
1. The wedge sneaker - any color, any brand. I tend to gear more towards solid colors when it comes to wedge sneakers, but there are many fabulous styles in a wide assortment of colors and patterns. And promise, wedge sneakers go with almost everything! 
2. The vest - denim, leather, fur, checkered...the possibilities are endless! Just throw on a vest over any item in your closet to instantly amp up your edge factor and create a fall look that's both trendy and warm. 
3. The patterned dress - patterns are in this fall and what better way to showoff your love of all things bold than to slip into an attention-grabbing frock?
Love the understated studs on this vest - they add interest and edgy glamour! 
Don't forget the arm candy! Bangles and spikes are extremely popular this season. And contrary to popular belief, mixing metals is perfectly acceptable.

Create your own perfect autumn look by incorporating any of these three power pieces into your fall style. Layer them all together like I did or wear them separately to create a statement all your own. 

Fall is all about layers and experimentation so go buy that leather studded vest that you've had your eye on all summer - I did!
