I’m turning the big 3-0 this year and my nerves are almost shattered. Apart from it meaning that I have to admit to being half a real adult now, it means that there’s certain things that I just really can’t wear anymore. (An article about that later…)

During New Years, one of my closest darlings came to visit us in the UK. Whilst out shopping I found the cutest little white lacy number that would’ve looked adorable on her. Her opinion was different because she felt that she would look like a child in such a dear little top. (She’s gorgeous btw). I, however, disagreed, and have since made it an effort to come up with a way to wear a flirty little number without looking like a desperate 16 year old. (If you find that I do, please tell me!)

The first order of business is to find a top that fits you really well in all the right places. This goes without saying.

Secondly, the bottom. Right now destroyed denim is everywhere, especially high and mid waisted, also boyfriend and flared styles. Any of these are a great companion to your little top, but if destroyed denim isn’t your thing, then try a solid dark blue (or black) pair of high-waisted (or mid, depending on your body type) jeans with a nice wide belt that stands out. Then add your shoes. I’d go with a strappy heeled sandal to distance your self, in this case, from the sneaker wearing youths.

Hair and makeup is next, and I currently love doing a low semi-messy bun.  Think Dolce & Gabbana. (I tug at the back of the hair so it’s not super neat looking.) I love this demure look because you can wear anything bold and that low bun tames it right down. For makeup, I did a bold smokey eye with a soft, natural lip and dewy cheeks to lift the overall look and again, and add age to the top. This is the one good time where you want to add age. Doing a neutral, no makeup look is good for the beach in the middle of summer, but any other time and your overall look will appear more juvenile that necessary. (Unless you were to do the other elements of this look, in which case you could probably get away with it.)

Last but not least is statement jewelry. A cuff bracelet and heavy (think huge) earrings add a touch of sophistication and timeless style. (Again, Dolce & Gabbana esq)

How To Rock Your Girl Boss Blazer

Every fashion group preaches from the roof-tops that a major closet staple is a black blazer. The necessity is real, whether it’s a boyfriend fit or completely tailored to your body. Wearing a blazer in such a way that you don’t come across like a wannabe lawyer takes a little bit of crafting, but it’s totally do-able and the look is absolutely amazing.

Throw a blazer over a vintage tee with distressed denim and you have a classic cool-girl look. It’s the perfect accessory to a really bold look, for instance a heavily textured skirt or dress, perhaps something with really bold patterns.

I felt like this is the year of the girl boss for me, and I found this blazer just in time! There’s something uplifting and strengthening about wearing what you’re feeling. It encourages you to take bold steps and make risky decisions, that hopefully pay off in the long run.

Happy New Year!!

I’ve had a love affair with all things earrings since I was a child, running around the house with my moms clip-ons and a scarf as a cape.

Oversized earrings have made a tremendous comeback. Dolce and Gabbana have been paving the way for years, but the rest of the populace have finally caught up to the exotic, the fabulous, the chic oversized earrings. There’s something pretty striking about a woman who can rock great accessories.

My favorite look is a tee, a pair of jeans, booties and a great pair of oversized earrings. They make a great statement piece without you losing the luxury of comfort.

We moved into this gorgeous old house and I’m loving playing around with the different rooms. It has this captains house vibe to it so it inspired my sailor look. It’s all about detail! Experiment with different ways to tuck in a shirt, it’s one of those key pieces that everyone should at least have a couple of options in. This is a classic Ralph Lauren button up mens shirt  that I stole from my husband back when we were friends.

Have fun!

Sophisticated laze.

There are those days when you just feel like not wearing denim. Today is that day. Throw a sweater on with some classy pants to keep that relaxed but elegant vibe. I love the green heels with the green pants, it keeps it low-key, while the jacket prevents the outfit from being too dressy. The clutch adds some intrigue into the look as well. Enjoy!

Beach Babe to City Slicker

In the last few weeks I’ve been covering how to smoothly transition from your beach babe attire back into the chic Fall wardrobe. We’re seeing it everywhere; that the laid back Summer jams is drawing slowly to a close, the weather is getting chillier and it’s time to step it up a notch. We soon will no longer have the excuse of it being simply too hot to get properly dressed in the morning. The transition from Beach Babe to City Slicker need not cost you a fortune, nor need it be confusing or overwhelming. All you need are those key transitional items that can be worn during the Summer scorch or Fall chill.

This weeks item is a good pair of shorts.

Not necessarily the frayed cutoffs you’ve been wearing to the beach, but one with a little more sass. My favorites so far going into this season have been the lace kind, or even sequin shorts. For city ritz, I try to stay away from skin tight, short shorts. I leave those to the sizzling summer days where I’m wearing longer tees and tanks and the heat ruins poise and half a sense of propriety. (You know exactly what I’m talking about). My favorites for being a little more city-esq is something made a little looser (not baggy, not skin tight), like lace for instance, or just a simple linen, cotton or velvet short. Pair with a cute pair of heels, (nothing to hooker-ish) and a soft blouse or modal tee with either a blazer or boyfriend cardi and you’re golden. Accessories and cute bag, a must.

As soon as the weather gets chilly you can throw stockings (not tights, not the 80’s) underneath with a chic pair of booties or flats and a comfy oversize knit sweater or blazer and you’ve transitioned beautifully. Maintain your Summer wild hair and a bit of glow (Jergen’s has a great lotion for giving off a glow without the trauma of a tanning bed or alternatively you can lather on a natural body oil after a shower and your skin will remain soft, supple and dewy), and combined with your transitional wardrobe would be a great look to have reminding everyone about the long beach days and Summer bliss.

Below are some fun outfit ideas!
