topaz

Hey Dolls!!

Does color blocking ever get old?  Well if you ask me I say NO!  I feel like its the perfect solution when you can't think of anything else to wear.  Some say there are rules to color blocking, I say break the rules.  Pick colors you like, put them together and BOOM...you're done!
I got these pants from one of my first thrifting experiences and I love them so much.  They can be worn so many ways and believe me, I have gotten my little $1.98 worth, LOL!!  I added a white blazer and some gold jewelry and before I knew it, I had a full outfit. 
What I'm Wearing:  Old Navy Blazer/Thrifted Shirt and Pants/Phillip Lim for Target Purse/Charming Charlie Necklace/BCBG Pumps/Nordstrom Earrings
If you guys can't tell by the pictures, my crazy friend Tre took these pictures for me.  She always had me doing all kinds of "EXTRA" stuff just to get a shot. By the time were done, I'm usually so exhausted.  She makes me truly give props to full time models because what they do is HARD WORK baby!  LOL!
I have to admit, as much as I give her a hard time we actually do come up with some pretty good shots, LOL!

Traditional Girl

Hey Dolls!!

Do you ever like to dress preppy?  Well, sometimes I do.  LOL!  You can actually put so many spins on traditional preppy looks and make them  your own.  My look today is a very casual preppy-inspired look.  I included some of what I like to call the typical preppy elements:  khaki, plaid (tartan), and the red, white and blue color scheme. 
All of these pieces were pulled from my closet.  I have worn them so many different ways.  That is the good thing about "creating looks", you have the choice to wear the pieces in so many different ways.  Traditional pieces NEVER go out of style.  They can have what I like to think of as cyclical style.

What I'm Wearing:  Express Denim Jacket/Macy's Necklace/Target Shirt (boy's department) and Booties/Belt stolen from another skirt/H&M Skirt/Bracelets from Dillard's and Talbot's/Tory Burch Purse/Nordstrom Earrings
If you love preppy looks, share your love and show me how you rock it!

Raspberry

Hey Dolls!!

I know its been a minute since I've posted but I'm back!  I know from the looks of some of you alls pictures and comments that you guys are experiencing some cold weather and I'm loving all of the Fall and Winter looks I see.  But I'm happily here in the Sunshine State with no Fall or Winter in site.  I must say I love it.  That is the reason I live in Florida.  I don't like cold weather anymore.  

I put this simple look together just by adding a pop of color to what could have been a plain all black look.  I encourage people to do this more often because color is beautiful.  I had no idea how many people fear adding color to their wardrobe.  Just try it!
What I'm Wearing:  BCBG Blazer/Target Shirt, Pants, and Necklace/Kensie Girl Shoes/Bracelet purchased in Hawaii/Flea Market Earrings
 
Happy to be back Dolls!!  Enjoy your week!!
