Denim Roundup

Donning denim is always presents a fun challenge of how to make this timeless staple feel fresh. I’d have to say that I wear denim most days and sometimes it can be easy to get stuck in a rut. Below I’ve rounded up some ways to refresh your denim options – yes, even skinny jeans 😉 Like all good 90’s trends, the split hem skinny is back this season :). I love this twist on […]

Spring Makeup Refresh

We’ve all been going stir crazy waiting for winter to end so even though it may still be cold outside, we can always brighten our makeup in anticipation for the changing season. Much like swapping winter coats for lighter jackets, opting for bold lips and dewy skin is an important part of prepping for spring. Check out my video for some tips on for spring makeup swaps!   Tatcha Polished Classic Rice Enzyme Powder Sunday […]

The Extra Mile

As you know by now, I’m a big fan of unexpected combinations in outfits. I’m always looking for a way to put a twist on the usual take on an outfit. Here I loved the idea of trying to wear this sequined dress for an everyday look. The over-the-knee suede flat boots made it feel more casual and also added warmth for the winter. This leather jacket in theory could have been too much with […]

City Sparkles

Last week I talked about shopping local at Grace Boutique in Old Town. Since the boutique is known for its selection of dresses I decided to feature one that caught my eye. I’m not normally drawn to dresses but I had fun adding my own flair with this leather jacket. Unexpected elements are always more interesting so I like to pair something edgy with my outfits. This also gives you more mileage from a formal […]

Grace Boutique

I have never been into boutiques. I’m not into kitschy items and I have too short an attention span to sort through lots of clutter. That’s why when I tell you that if you live in the Lansing area you need to visit Grace Boutique, you know it is worth checking out. It is hard to find good shopping in this area so I often find myself doing most of my purchasing online – though […]

Pieces On Repeat

I have to say this outfit is making me happy right now! It’s made up of some of my favorite layering pieces this season. The vest I’ve been wearing on repeat with outfits like this one or with some over-the-knee suede boots and a big scarf. The beanie is so warm and cosy that I often find myself throwing it on for an added pop of color. The necklace is surprisingly versatile! I love that […]

Cold Weather Valentine

It’s COLD here! Too cold for this LA girl. My one consolation? I can wear this faux fur coat and these red ankle boots. With Valentine’s Day coming up I thought it might be fun to put together an alternative V-Day look. When it’s cold the last thing you want to do is put on a dress and be freezing. I’m also not much of a dress girl even when it is warm so I […]

Family Jewels

  I’ve never been big into jewelry. I used to only wear my wedding ring and some diamond stud earrings and call it good. Shoes were more my thing and often had enough sparkle for the rest of my outfit. But I started to notice how a bangle of bracelets and baubles really added interest some of my style icons’ outfits like Rachel Zoe and Iris Apfel and Audrey Hepburn. My grandma has always loved […]

Nothing But Navy

Follow my blog with Bloglovin I am a firm believer in wearing what makes you feel good and confident. Sometimes you just need to wear that go-to outfit that you know looks good on you to cheer you up or give yourself that extra dose of confidence. Navy is my favorite color and you can never go wrong with a blazer or sport coat. One of the best ways for guys to add a little […]
