Berry Burst

My favorite dark skinny jeans paired with a silky, berry colored blouse and neutral blazer!  My job does not require me to dress up, but I like to be comfortable, casual and professional at the same time.  This is the perfect mix of all three!

This is the first time I have worn this necklace, and I have had it for months.  It is a really interesting color.  I couldn't figure out what to wear with it and then A-HA!  A burst of berry went perfectly!

I must apologize for my protruding roots.  Surprise!  I'm not a natural blonde!  Wha-wha-whaaaat?  Haha!  Is anybody anymore?  I have a hair appointment this weekend, so I promise they'll be gone soon.  Now you know why I've been wearing so many hats! ;)

I'm With The Band

The Fedora Project Part 3...

I don’t know what it is about this hat, but I am utterly obsessed with it!  It kind of makes me feel cool, mysterious, and put together, all at the same time!  Every time I wear a fedora, you know who seems to like it the most?  Little old men!  It’s so completely cute.  I think it reminds them of their day when they used to wear them.  Sometimes, they will tell me, “I have that same hat at home”!  I don’t know whether to laugh or cry!

This outfit I wore to a singing gig with the band that I am in.  The event was a wedding and we had a rockin good time!  The colors we had to wear were black and white, which can be difficult to make look interesting.  I love the combination of these masculine and feminine pieces.  It creates a look that's not too precious!  This dress from H&M I've had for a couple of years and have worn it for so many different occasions.  It has pockets on the sides, which adds a little curve to my shape.  If you are curvy and don't want to add more to your hips, avoid side pockets.  They add extra weight and attract more attention to your hips.  If you need a little extra oomph like me, side pockets create that hour glass shape that you desire!  Any detail on your clothing like a ruffle or ruching is going to accentuate the body part it is on.  So if you have things you want to hide, avoid details that draw attention to them!

Opposites Attract

The Fedora Project Continues...

They say that opposites attract in relationships, but how about clothing?  Definitely!  This outfit is where punk and prissy meet! 

I don't always have an agenda or specific item I am searching for when hitting the stores, but this time I did!  I was on the hunt for the girliest dress that existed.  Pink, flowers, ruffles... can't get more feminine than that!  Scored this dress on the sale rack for only $5.00!  To offset the soft, feminine nature of the dress I added a black fedora and my new oxfords!  These are not the oxfords I purchased online (See: Dorky Yet So Adorable!), I actually found them at Ross for $12.  I am now obsessed with oxfords...they are sooo comfortable!  There are currently three pairs happily sitting in my closet and they are just too cute for words!  The jewelry I kept simple, although not in my nature, this outfit is pretty busy already.  Just a simple silver chain necklace...I dare not leave my neck completely bare!

 


This studded belt I've had in my collection for some time, but have never worn it.  Don't you hate when you buy something and when you get home you realize "I have absolutely nothing to wear with this!"  OR  even worse...you don't even like what you bought anymore!  This is often because us women cannot resist one word...SALE!  Due to the fact that I am a repeat offender of buying dumb things that are on sale, I have a rule.  Don't buy it if you wouldn't pay full price for it!  It really works, and saves me from wasting money or having to return things (which I hate doing!).

So I challenge you...use your inner Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde this week and wear an outfit that totally contradicts itself!  Send me your pics if you like!

Feathers and Crystals and Gladiator Heels Oh My!

Grey paired with a bright color is my fav!  So chic!  There are so many beautiful, unexpected color combinations that you can wear with it!  Pink, purple, yellow, brown...the list goes on!  Since it is a neutral, you can wear almost anything with it…it's like a blank canvas.  I chose these dark grey cargo/hammer pants with a dark grey boyfriend tee.  Wearing the same color on top and bottom is a great way to lengthen you’re body and leg line.  Especially if you have short legs like me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely ADORE this lightweight cardigan from Charlotte Russe.  I don't normally shop there, but it seems like they are revamping (has nothing to do with vampires you Twilight lovers, haha) their style to be a little more fashion forward.  Me likey!  As for the necklace, it just goes with EVERYTHING!  It's my new obsession, even though I believe I've already met my quota of obsessions this month.  Pairing feathers with crystals...pure genius!  The bracelet is a little random, but it is green and my wrist told me it felt naked.  I don't listen to the rule that says "remove one accessory before you leave your house" so you won't be over accessorized.  In fact, I do the opposite!  Add one!  The more the merrier!
