Romp it!



Jumpsuit / Sam Edelman pumps / Stella Dot coin purse / Stella Dot bracelet / Stella & Dot stud earrings / Stella Dot accessory / Bobbi Brown Cosmetics lip gloss

Saturday night I'm having a redo for my bday get together.  It got snowed out last month and I rescheduled for this Saturday night!  I'm excited for all my favorites to be together, minus a few that can't make it :(  I was thinking about wearing a LBD, but then I saw this cute romper from Lulu's and thought hmmmm this would be fuuuuuun!  So, if I go with this, this is how I'm going to style it.  Lately, I'm all about edgy rocker-ish type jewels, so these pieces from Stella & Dot are the perfect find!  and these pumps!?!!?! I can't even....  these are my next purchase!

Weekend casual with fun boots

Weekend casual with fun boots

Love when there's no plans on the weekend and then hubby says get dressed, let's go for a coffee date, then who knows....  OK!  I'm down!  So, since it is the weekend, and I want to be comfortable but still look cute, these boots are just the thing.  I love the color, and that they have a wedge.  You can pair them with a cozy sweatshirt like I did here, or you can add a blouse and a statement necklace and you are instantly dressed up.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!  
Ughhh back to work I go tomorrow, after about an 8 day break.  Not looking forward to getting up early, but I am excited to get up and get dressed for the day (as I sit here on my couch in my pajamas in the middle of the afternoon).  After over-eating during the holidays, I'm also excited to get back to eating clean and hitting up the box. (Crossfit gym)  With that said, I will be wearing some loose fitting outfits for the first couple of weeks until I get some weight off.  A loose fitting blouse and  stretchy pencil skirt it is!  Throw on a statement necklace and make it through your first day back!

If you and your man are traveling for New Years, I put this simple outfit together for him.  No sweats when traveling!  Hide sleepy eyes with some killer shades when getting off the plane or out from a long car ride.  No sneakers necessary, dress up the button down and jeans with a nice chucka boot and he'll have other travelers thinking.... hmmm do I know him?!?!  What movie was he in?? haha

Favorite Ponchos

Favorite Ponchos



Gap cable poncho / Lauren Ralph Lauren plaid cape / Cejon cable knit poncho / Big Buddha cape coat / Donna Karan long slip / H M turtleneck poncho, $41 / Alfani tummy control pants / Alfani clothing

Ponchos are all the rage right now.  They are super comfy and take any outfit, from casual to dressy casual.  Take a pair of leggings and a tunic that you would wear food shopping and throw on a poncho and you are ready to meet up with a girlfriend for coffee.
 Which is your favorite?

Visiting Friends

Visiting Friends



Yellow top / H m poncho, $41 / Gap destroyed jeans / Naturalizer zip boots / ASOS satchel bag / Kate Spade bracelet jewelry / Stella Dot silver and gold jewelry / Stella Dot bracelets bangle

During the Holidays, hubby and I like to stop by friends houses for a visit.  Most of our friends have kids, so we usually are the ones to head to their house for a visit, instead of hosting.  I want to be cozy when I visit friends because I'm usually sitting on the floor playing with the kiddos, or rough housing with the family dog.  Simple sweater, skinnies and riding boots are the perfect combo for being casual, yet still looking put together (I have these riding boots and I highly recommend them, super comfy and perfect brown color).  Add some dangle earrings for a dressier look. 
What do you wear to visit friends?

Going to see the Tree.

Going to see the Tree.



J Crew merino sweater / Jack BB Dakota army green parka / 7 For All Mankind clothing / Fergie black over knee boots / Topshop black crocodile handbag / Kate Spade stainless steel watch / Stella Dot sparkle jewelry / Subtle Luxury knit scarve

Christmas week, hubby and I are planning to have a date day in NYC and going to go check out the tree and Rockefeller Center.  I have a few things on my list on what I want to do, and most of it includes walking around everywhere.  So, heels are not an option.  I'm liking these flat over the knee black boots,  they are cute even though they don't have a heel.  Walking around the city, it's going to be chilly so a cute warm jacket and snood are a must.  Dressing the outfit up a bit with fun earrings.  Since I'm going to be covered up, no need to wear an arm party or necklace, for fear of them breaking or losing them.  
What would you wear while walking around NYC?

Navy and Olive

Navy and Olive



LOFT three quarter length sleeve top / Gap skinny pants / Nine West pumps / Coach handbag / Stella Dot necklace / Stella Dot adjustable bracelet / Stella Dot pave bead bracelet / Essie nail polish

Casual days in the office around the holidays allow me to rock some pants I normally wouldn't wear, other than the weekends.  I dressed up these Gap skinnies with a Stella & Dot statement necklace and a pair of leopard Nine West pumps.  I am really liking this Coach bag.  The studs give it a little more edge from the usual classic bags that Coach offers.  I'm adding this one to my wishlist!

Gray Neutrals

Gray Neutrals



LOFT peter pan t shirt / Banana Republic pencil skirt / Zara moccasin flat / Zara shopping bag / Stella Dot stella dot necklace / Stella Dot blossom jewelry / NARS Cosmetics pink blush, $34 / Lancôme nail polish

Besides dark colors for Winter, I also like to wear light gray.  I usually pair it with darker colors, but today I decided to combine it with silver and stripes.  A pop of pink and statement necklace and you are ready to go.  If it's not warm enough to wear bare legs, you can add black opaque tights and booties instead.  I would wear this to work and to happy hour.
Where you wear this outfit?  Are you a fan of light gray in the Winter?

Holiday Party at Work

Holiday Party at Work



LOFT petite peplum top / LOFT petite skirt / Enzo Angiolini leather shoes / Michael Kors stainless steel jewelry / Stella Dot long necklace / Stella Dot adjustable knot bracelet / Stella Dot stella dot jewelry / Essie nail polish

With the Holidays coming up, I'm slowly starting to think about what to wear to certain events/parties.  Mid Dec. I have my Holiday party at work.  It's from 5-9, so I will be going straight from the office.  I don't really want to wear a cocktail dress all day while sitting in front of a computer, and don't feel like bringing an outfit to change, that just sounds a little too high maintenance for me.  So, this black peplum top and mustard pencil skirt, (you can also wear a red pencil skirt if you want to feel more "tis the season") is perfect to wear from office to party.  I wouldn't change a thing. None of this changing out pieces stuff, strictly as is! 
What will you wear to your company Holiday party?

I love when my hubby looks so casual, but still put together.

I'm having my Stella & Dot Launch Party tomorrow night and that got me thinking of what to wear to a friend's get together around the holidays.  I kept it pretty casual with this fun sweatshirt and Loft pants, and then dressed it up with my 2 favorite S&D necklaces combined together.  Add a pop of holiday color on your feet and your are instantly ready to cheers with great friends!

Fun night out with Friends!

Fun night out with Friends!



LOFT striped top / 7 For All Mankind clothing / ALDO leather buckle boots / Studded leather handbag / Stella & Dot tassel jewelry / Stella & Dot studded jewelry / MAC Cosmetics rose lipstick

Saturday night we went out with friends and had a great time!  I wanted to be comfortable since it's getting cold out and I didn't feel like wearing pumps, so I started with the boots and worked my way up from there.  This striped top is from Loft and they had a sale going on 75% off yesterday.  I love this Stella & Dot tassle neckace and pair it with everything, it's the perfect subtle statement piece. The perfect pop of color is with this Jcrew factory purse.
Have you ever put your outfit together, starting with your feet first?

Wear brights in the Winter!

Wear brights in the Winter!



Gap pink dress / Kenneth Cole jacket / Stella & Dot chain jewelry / Stella & Dot stella dot jewelry

This Gap dress is perfect for any season.  You can wear this with booties, boots, flats, and then with sandals in the Spring.  I love that it has sleeves, so you can wear it to work without a sweater if you want.  These shoes are just plain awesome!  Bright colors can easily be worn through the cold seasons, as long as you darken the outfit up with a Fall-like jacket, shoe, purse.  
What bright color are you wearing for Fall?

Casual Arm Party

Casual Arm Party



Gap petite pants / Fitted shirt / Zara shoes / Coach leather purse / Stella & Dot chain necklace / Stella & Dot beaded jewelry / Stella & Dot beaded jewelry / Stella & Dot pave bangle

The best trend right now is rocking an "arm party".  Meaning, pair a few, usually 2 or 3 bracelets on the same arm as your watch.  Stella & Dot have some great budget friendly options to add to your accessory collection (Even get them for free, if you host a trunk show!).  The Renegade bracelet is my absolute favorite and is a little bit rocker-ish, for that little added spunk to any outfit.  By the way, do you love this Coach purse!?!?! I'm dying for it.  This will def. be on my Wishlist this Holiday season!   
Do you rock an arm party??  What are your favorites to pair together?

Make a statement on your day off!



Long sleeve knit cardigan / White cotton blouse / Zara jeans / Charles Philip Shanghai loafer, $76 / Oasis pink metallic purse, $11 / Kate Spade watch / Stella & Dot blue chain necklace / Stella & Dot earrings

I had Columbus Day off and was running errands all day, and heading to an appointment so I wanted to still look put together, but not be "work dressed".  I'm loving this Stella & Dot statement necklace, it's the type you can throw on with a t-shirt and jeans and you just added that extra ooomph! Kept the other accessories basic and threw on a pair of comfortable loafers.  This outfit can be worn for a coffee date, headed to your kid's soccer game, or to your PTA meeting.
