I'm all about using what you already have for a Halloween Costume...

Happy Halloween Everyone!  For today I "threw" together a Bank Robber costume with primarily pieces that were already in my closet.  Lets discuss: the jeans, t-shirt, sneaks, beanie and tote were items that I already owned.  I made a quick run to target (note to self: do NOT go to Target, Walmart, Party City, etc on Halloween Eve), and purchased a men's black zipper down sweatshirt and finger-less gloves.  The costume section was totally picked over, with barely nothing left for a mask option, so I improvised.  I purchased black decorative gauze.  When I returned home, I folded the gauze to be about 4 layers thick, cut it into a long strip (to fit around my head).  I used bobby pins to hold it in place, took it off and cut simple holes for my eyes.  It worked pretty well, except for the fact that tiny pieces of  gauze keep getting into my eyes.  Oh well.

Oh, I also made these "dirt" desserts for a party later tonight: chocolate pudding, cool whip, oreos, gummy worms sandwich cookies.  Easy-peasy, and cute, right?

Citron Central

October 28, 2014

There is something elegant about the midi skirt - longer than your typical pencil skirt length, but not as long as a maxi, showing just the right amount of calf.  The pictures don't actually do this skirt justice (shame on me).  The color is vibrant citron and the texture is oh-so-silky.  

I kept this look basic with a simple (and inexpensive) ribbed high-neck sweater, black leather pumps and minimal accessories.  See below for similar options..

I spend the day Sunday watching football bundled up in this super comfy Vintage Havana wrap sweater from Lord & Taylor and these new Topshop x Nordstrom jeans.  A quintessential Fall Sunday.

Colorblock Crepe

October 24, 2014

What could be more comfortable than an oversized tunic + cute booties for casual Friday at work? Especially after indulging on buffalo chicken nachos + beer last night.

To be honest, I didn't really know what a "crepe" style top was until now.  Basically, crepe means anything that is draped or "loose" fitting of a light material.  So pretty much all my closet favorites.  Not to be confused with the cookery crepe, which is also light and thin, but usually filled with bananas + nutella, or stawberries + cream.  Wow, I'm hungry.  Time for lunch....   

Also if you can't tell from the pictures, this blouse has 3 colors: blush in the front, beige in the back and green sleeves.  Don't be afraid to add another color to the mix.  Like I did with the grey booties - they help tie together the silver chain necklace + side zipper hardware on the blouse.  All and all, a nice balance.  Have a fabulous weekend!

Today I'm sharing this look I wore to Kerry's Rehearsal Dinner last Thursday night.  I bought this exact same jumpsuit in white this past spring, but never wore it.  So when looking for something to wear to the Rehearsal Dinner, I purchased the same thing in Black.   I'll be sharing more pictures and graphics from the wedding later this week.  Stay tuned...

You know Fall, it is all about those layers and I cannot get enough of this flannel shirt dress (worn as a top, it would be wayyy too short for me to wear as a dress).

Looking for some Fall Flannel tops?  Check out this one (pictured above).  You can't go wrong for less that $25!   Other options here and here.

Happy Monday all.  How about this look?  Easy-peasy, the layering was done for me with this shirttail sweater.  Pretty sweet deal, plus the sweater is now 40% off.  Lots of colors + patterns to choose from..  

Oh and in other news, my sister is getting married this week!  I. am. so. excited!  I will be sharing more photos and wedding details with you later (maybe next week).  I designed the invitations and we did mostly everything else in house.  It was lots of work but we enjoyed (almost) every moment of it.  Now, time to party!

I don't have many rules when it comes to dressing... 


Except for one.  If you're wearing something that shows off the legs, wear something more conservative on the top (i.e. no crop tops and/or minimal cleavage).  This works both ways.  If your wearing a low cut top, a slim tank or a crop top, don't show too much leg (i.e. swap the mini skirt for a midi skirt).  Balance it out.  Don't give it all away, you know?


I was a bit apprehensive to wear over-the-knees boots.  I wanted to remain classy without giving off any trashy vibes, especially since these boots have a high heel.  And although I'm not wearing a skirt or showing much skin, this look is all about the legs, creating a sexy, curvy silhouette.  So I followed my rule and paired the boots with skinny jeans (tucked into my socks so they don't ride up) and a super comfy, over-sized sweater.  Pretty simple, while remaining balanced + on trend at the same time.

So if you're debating making the purchase of some killer over-the-knee boots, get 'em gurl!  You will rock them. 

I'll be sharing more ways to style these over-the-knee boots so check back next week.

This blouse blows me away.  I snagged it on the BCBG 50% off rack at Lord & Taylor a few weeks ago and have already worn it twice (and probably a 3rd time this week).  What's better than a timeless, crisp white blouse with some flare + fun in the back?  

Check out other great BCBG sales items at L&T here.
