green with envy.

20 Mar

I’ve always had an appreciation for the color green…and I guess today, I can say it’s my favorite color. My career outfits haven’t been anything special these days. Budget crunching (and lent) have kept me from adding to my spring wardrobe. So, I’ve had to reinvent the wheel and go shopping in my own closet every day! But that’s OK. Keeps my mind fresh and agile…full of unique fashion ideas. Because let’s be honest, how many 20-something girls have the money to splurge on Michael Kors and Loubous? If you can, I’m green with envy 😉

OK, back on track. Today, I threw on a green circle-patterned blouse, black capris and some old faithfuls, my kelly green pumps. Nothing I was very proud of, but hey, I was comfy and felt stylish enough. Well, little did I know how much attention my green beauties would bring! Compliments, compliments galore! Even from a few men. I should have known green shoes would make my day. Isn’t that what fashion is all about? Feeling good in what you have on, no matter where it came from?

Spring fever is in full swing, and I’m loving me some kelly green. So if there is nothing else you add to your wardrobe this season, make sure you’ve got color. If green is your thing, then yay! If not, try coral, yellow or royal blue! Be bright, be happy. Try to mix and match shades for unique color-blocking effects. Compliments will surely come your way.

Go Green, ladies.

Sportin’ casual Sunday

5 Feb

What’s more fitting on SuperBowl Sunday then talking SPORTSWEAR. Pegged as one of spring’s must-have looks, there is a lot of room for interpretation which makes it perfect for any woman. WINNING! So make this trend your own and make it you! Remember it’s comfy and it’s casual, and do not force it too much. Wear what you love!

Some ideas? Black harem pants, your fave graphic tee and an oversized cardigan. Throw on some heels if you are meeting the girls for drinks, or try flats if it’s a shopping day with Mom. Another option, try a collared shirt dress, yellow belt and brown boots. Want to be a little more daring? Find a mesh crop top, pair it with a matching cami and a floral zip-up. Finish the look with jeans and a good ole pair of converse.

Prep your wardrobe for casual Sundays, every day! And the good thing? You can is you can mix and match what’s already in your closet for a WINNING team!

Check out some runway looks, and a look I put together on Polyvore 🙂 happy game day, fanshionistas!

Girl meets boy

18 Jan

Need a wardrobe pick me up? A little work meets play, boy meets girl, or beauty meets brains? Why not make it easy with items already in your closet?  The blazer and dress. The androgyny will give you a fresh update. It’s sophisticated enough for work and runway enough for today’s fashionista. Blazers vary tremendously in color, cut and style. It’s no wonder I have a love affair with them!

Try a black sheath dress with a pink boyfriend blazer, just add a rhinestone necklace to make it a day to night look. Have a cute frilly polka-dotted frock in your closet from spring? Mix it up with a red fitted blazer, black tights and ankle boots for winter. Check out some other inspirations below…
